By Dr Shahid Qureshi : –
Keep Karachi bleeding is the sinister plan against Pakistan launched by the Indians with the full support of its friends and assets in ruling politicians from Nawaz Sharif, Pervez Musharraf and Asif Zardari. So much so a security official said: ‘we could stop this terrorism in 24 hours if we are allowed to reply in kind to the originators of this’. What he meant was that Pervez Musharraf, Asif Zardari and now Nawaz Sharif regimes have tied our hands but they let the anti-Pakistan agents and terrorists have free ride from MQM-A to Black water (Xe Inc).
The constant obstructions and hurdles created by the political leadership of MQM-A, PPP Zardari Group, PML-N Ishaq Dar Group are putting lives and limbs of security services, police and soldiers fighting foreign backed agents and terrorists in Pakistan especially Karachi. All the three parties in power have proved links and interests with foreign agencies and countries. Crimes of MQM-A are heinous and there is no excuse for any politician to ignore the pains and grief they have caused to the families of journalists, religious scholars, students, police, army, rangers personals.
Altaf Hussain said in an interview with The Rediff on November 22, 2004 the Indian newspaper: ‘India should trust Musharraf’.
General Pervez Musharraf ‘over confidence’ and cowardliness caused damage to the armed forces of Pakistan as well as the State. His political ambitions made him compromise the national security on the issue of MQM-A terrorism in Karachi. He released over 8000 MQM-A convicted terrorists some of them were involved in dozens of murders in the NRO (national reconciliation Ordinance). I asked him in the British Parliament: Don’t you feel embarrass by passing black law like NRO? His response was ‘well the cases were not going anywhere’. I gave him my book ‘war on terror and siege of Pakistan’ told him to read chapter ‘Economic Terrorism of MQM-A’.
He was meeting and dining with Israelis in London, when I asked him about these meetings. He said: ‘I did not know them before the lunch’. Well than who arranged these meetings? MQM-A and Baluchi terrorists groups were /are providing shelter, money and arms to each other. Israeli interest in Baluchistan is not hidden? Khan of Kalat based in UK in response to my question about his meetings with Israelis said: ‘I cannot confirm or deny’. Is it not strange that Pervez Musharraf’s PR Company and Malala Yousaf Zai (Anne Frank of Pakistan) is same?

“General Pervez Musharaf’s coup seemed timely. Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres said to Newsweek Magazine (5 November 2001):’I told him [President Bush], we understand your strategy, as a good Jewish boy, I would have never dreamed that I would pray for the safety of Musharraf, the president of Pakistan. That is a most unexpected experience.”
May be due these prayers Pervez Musharraf and now coma-stricken former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon shook hands on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in September 2005.
On Monday 8th October 2007 Israeli President Shimon Peres congratulated Pervez Musharraf on his yet unofficial re-election as president of Pakistan, a country with which Israel has no relations. “Although we do not have formal relations, I would like to convey my best wishes on your election as president of Pakistan for a second term,” Peres wrote in a letter made public.
“You have shown responsibility and strength in preventing the spread of violence and terrorism on many occasions and I carry in my heart your support for peace in the Middle East which I heard directly from you.”
President Musharraf made a surprise offer on Friday 20th April 2007, to help resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in an interview with the pan-Arab satellite Television Al-Arabia.
Musharraf told the Dubai-based television that he would be willing to visit the Jewish state in order to help bring peace to the troubled Middle East. Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev said Pakistan’s involvement would be welcomed, but said Musharaf’s effectiveness would likely be limited.
“Israel believes that moderate Muslim countries like Pakistan can play a very important role in helping and strengthening the Middle East peace process,” Regev said. “Having said that, experience has clearly demonstrated that the most successful mediators have always been those that have established and solid relationships with both sides.”
Israel on Saturday 21st April 2007, welcomed an offer by President General Pervez Musharraf to help resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but said it was doubtful the Pakistani leader could make much progress. But Israeli Prime Minister turned down the offer later on. Well India is the largest arms buyer from Israel.
An US citizen Israeli spy Johnathan Pollard interviewed by FBI admitted supplying US classified documents about Pakistan to the Israelis. He is serving life sentence in USA. He given Israeli citizenship while in prison. Apart from requests from all Israeli presidents and prime ministers USA refused to release him but Musharraf released Indian spy Kashmir Singh with campaign by Ansar Burney his minister for human rights.

Shimon Peres has a soft corner for General Musharaf for long time but why is a million dollar question? Why would a leader with blood of Palestinians on his hand love General Musharaf? That is for President and his team to think. People of Pakistan need justice not bullets need food not bombs. Does anyone think Indian-US agenda and interests are common in Wazirstan and Baluchistan?

The fact of the matter is that if Israelis and Indians are hand in gloves in supporting terrorism in Pakistan and conspiring to disintegrate by using all ‘assets’ why Pakistani politicians are in denial to accept that this relationship is toxic or their multi-billion dollar businesses abroad including India are more important than 200 million Pakistanis? When Indians send dead bodies of Pakistani prisoners these politicians and dictators release convicted terrorists and Indian spies in one sided love that is why Karachi kept on bleeding for over 30 years but these people behaved like rent boys?
