Pakistan Jihad will continue

with 4 comments

That’s what Pakistan Jihadis have told America, in the first anniversary of the raid to the Red Mosque. As if to prove their openly expressed intentions, a suicide bombing outside Lal Masjid in Islamabad has killed 19 people:

A suicide bomber killed 19 Pakistanis, including 15 policemen, in an attack outside a police station in Islamabad. More than 40 Pakistanis were reported wounded. (…) The “death toll is expected to mount considering the intensity of the blast.”

The attack occurred on the anniversary of the Pakistani government assault on the Lal Masjid, or Red Mosque. One year ago, the Pakistani government ordered a siege and subsequent full-scale assault on the Lal Masjid, after its leaders attempted to impose sharia, or Islamic law, in neighborhoods in the heart of Islamabad. Their followers kidnapped policemen and prostitutes, and beat those who would not comply with sharia.

Quietly and slowly, the narco-state of Jihadistan is appearing in the frontier between Pakistan and Afghanistan:

“What has changed today is that these powerful, fiercely independent tribes have now acquired an ‘allegiance’, indeed the rudiments of a cohesive political identity, within the ambit of the Taliban/Al Qaeda nexus that is now transforming Waziristan and its environs into a loosely integrated jihadist state. I shall call this quasi- or prototypical-state, this state within a state, “Jihadistan”.

(…) Bill Roggio, in the Long War Journal Sep 13, 2006, is even more emphatic: “South Waziristan fell some time in the spring of 2006 (I suspect sometime in late March). On March 6, I referred to South Waziristan as ‘Talibanistan’. Shariah Law was instituted … at this time and the Taliban began to rule openly. A single political party was established in South Waziristan, a party loyal to the Taliban. It is said a secret accord was signed between the Pakistani government and the Taliban around this time…”

(…) “The Taliban reportedly control most of the region with its own authoritarian rule, including beheadings and other violent punishments which the Pakistan government has been unable to stop,” declares Mansoor Ijaz (Wall Street Journal, Sep 19, 2006).

Al Qaeda/Taliban have also established a viable narco-based agricultural economy within their domain which makes up for the personal fortune that Osama bin Laden originally used to fund the jihad until American and Saudi interdiction dried it up.
