Project Malala: Famous Lost Words (Part-III)

“In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.” –George Orwell

The year is 1880 and the battle of Maiwind is raging between the British attackers and the Pashtuns of Afghanistan led by Ayub Khan. A woman named Malalai is rallying the Pashtuns to gain victory over the British forces. She is shot and falls as a martyr. The British are defeated and the people for generations to come name their children after Ayub Khan and Malalai.

The year is 2012. There are other forces bent upon reclaiming more or less the same territory. There is hardly an Ayub Khan or a Malalai in sight but we do have Malala Yousuf Zai of Swat singing the praises of Her Majesty the BBC. How times change!

Although Oscar Wilde said a whole lot more about journalism but just one quote will do for now: “By giving us the opinions of the uneducated, modern journalism keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the Community.”

Malala, after receiving threats on Facebook, deleted her personal page and ‘attended digital-security sessions’. This is amazing! Was she sent to the School of the Americas where the world’s top assassins and dictators train or did she get home-tuition from Black Water security experts? Since 9 October 2012, the mass hypnotists of the mainstream media have worked over-time to promote Project Malala (‘psyop’: psychological operations) and are now busy labelling those who think for themselves as ‘conspiracy theorists’. The truth is: the truth always invites the wrath of the establishment, as evident from the struggles of the Prophets of God.

Naeem Tahir, a dramatist, discovers a strange ‘common’ link between three men separated by decades: a Pushto poet, a Communist mass murderer and Malala’s daddy:
"Malala has been inspired by her father, Ziauddin Yousafzai—an educationist and a poet—who in turn had been inspired by Khushal Khan Khattak, the great poet. It is interesting that these revolutionaries have something common with Mao who was a poet himself."

Feryal Ali Gauhar, having touched wuthering heights herself as a noted drama queen, declares:
“Malala was the lone voice in that wilderness. She rose to heights few of us can aspire to.”

Yasser Lateef Hamdani, a lawyer and a columnist who left his muddy paw-prints in the comments section of Part-I of this article, specially pleads:
“This valiant young girl has known since age 11 what an Oxford-educated Pakistani hero, now nearing 60, who should know better, does not.”

Hamdani is obviously referring to Imran Khan here while his freelance writer wife, Aisha Fayyazi Sarwari, pokes fun at Qazi Hussain’s idea and imagines the Taliban do not know who their fathers are. She says on Twitter:
“I would not waste a second droning the bastards who opened fire on a 14 year old girl.” (Twitter, 09 October 2012)
“Qazi Hussain Ahmed said that those who propped up Malala are to blame for the incident. One can only be shocked at this inhumanity.” (Twitter, 10 October 2012)

The Daily Beast regularly features anti-Qur’an self-hating Indian Muslim, Asra Quratulain Nomani (of Daniel Pearl fame). The electronic publication now features Angelina Jolie’s article which declares:
“We All Are Malala. Our 8-year-old [daughter] suggested that the world build a statue for Malala.” 


Fareed Zakaria of CNN says:
“We've been waiting for this kind of moment for a while. The tide is turning once again. Pakistanis often blame the West for their problems, protesting against America, against drone strikes, or even against YouTube. But the real enemy lies within. And it took a 14-year-old girl to bring that to people's attention.”

It is obvious why Zakaria has waited ‘for this kind of moment’. The spins he always creates are expert level, and his anti-Pakistan stance comes not from being an Indian but from having been to Yale to study under Harvard professor Samuel P. Huntington (author of the insidious ‘Clash of the Civilizations’). He joined the secret Scroll and Key Society (George W. Bush and his cronies are from Yale’s infamous Skull and Bones Society) and being an over ambitious Muslim Zionist married Paula Throckmorton, a Jew. Our man has his fingers in many dangerous pies and needs to be watched very carefully.

Lisa Szarkowski of UNICEF, USA says:
“The cowards who aimed to silence 14-year-old Malala Yousufzai with a bullet have instead made the Pakistani schoolgirl a global icon. Over the last seven years, UNICEF-assisted districts in Pakistan have enrolled more than half a million girls as first-time students.”

Ahmed Quraishi, a self-proclaimed political analyst who runs the khaki coloured Pak Nationalists website, further obfuscates matters:
“Our military operations in Swat and Afghan border areas won’t be effective as long as the United States military and its allied forces in Afghanistan continue to turn a blind eye to terrorists who attacked Malala.”

Farooq Yousaf, another naïve journalist imagines:
“[Malala is] just another girl peace activist and not an agent. How can a 14-year-old girl be made a reason to carry out the operation?”

He asks ‘how’; I am sure he has not read my lines. He provides no well-researched material, no web links that unveil Malala and her sponsors, and never admonishes those who run Pakistan via remote control—this remains the typical modus operandi of many professional journalists.

Farooq Yousuf’s Centre for Research and Security Studies (CRSS) has links with Peace Direct of UK, a ‘charity project that finds, funds, promotes local peace-builders in conflict areas around the world, and wants to change the balance of power and resources between local people and outsiders.’ Read the comments of those who were overcome with emotions thinking about Malala.

The unity of the mass media and all this manufactured consent on the Malala issue is unbelievable. The bitter truth is that the emancipated women and effeminate men on the television screens who twist our brains on a daily basis get their news from only a handful of media conglomerates. And because the puppet-masters pull the strings, most reporters become prisoners of their own vain desires and end up creating expert spins but seldom seen chasing after the whole truth.

Indeed the cancer of a hundred TV channel with their sleeveless, Bob-cut, Botox-injecting talk-show hosts, and a plethora of other problems were gifted to us by military dictator Musharraf who now lives comfortably in exile in London. Most of his ex-cronies still think ‘his era was the best in recent times’. The fact is he ignited a bigger fire of ambition in the hearts of those from his own forceful and armed tribe. There are no institutions left in this country; only ruling families continue to thrive through intermarriage. The commoners leave for greener pastures while the leaders choose to stay back; where else would the latter find so many worshippers?

Awards and rewards

As Rush Limbaugh said, “Just follow the Money Trail!”
 
In 2011, Malala was nominated (she did not win) for the International Children's Peace Prize by KidsRights, a Dutch front of the globalists, founded in July 2003 by Marc Dullaert (and launched by Mikhail Gorbachev). Attached to the International Children’s Peace Prize is the prize money of €100,000 (about Rs 120 million). The prize money is awarded by KidsRights to a direct aid project (or multiple projects) in the spirit of the young winner’s efforts. In addition, the winner receives financial support for his or her studies. What KidsRights expect in return is:
“We hope that the attack on Malala will not discourage other children to stand up for their rights”.

Later last year the government of Pakistan awarded Malala the National Youth Peace Prize which was later renamed the National Malala Peace Prize, for those less than eighteen years of age. Someone in the media gifted Malala a laptop computer and Sind Information Minister, Shazia Marri, presented her with an Apple i-Pad. Out of whose pocket did Miss Marri encourage the girl? What heights of academic excellence did Malala touch to deserve these expensive toys, and why must the rest of the underprivileged children of Pakistan remain without i-Pads?

As a chief guest on 26 November 2011, Malala admired Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and claimed she really ‘knew many deep things’. She delivered a speech like a professionally coached orator and received an award.

At an essay writing competition held on 24 December 2010, the IWPR too awarded Malala. See Taleban Disgraced by Attack on Child Activist
Malala stated to Al Jazeera:
“The people of Swat are not terrorists. If this new generation is not given pens, they will be given guns by terrorists.”

Her plans for the future include forming her own pro-education political party. This means, another robot advocating the ‘dictated’ syllabi whose disguised principles might be anathema to the core Islamic values.

If you listen to Malala speak, with her professional coaching and memorized short speeches she puts most of our politicians to shame. She studies at her father’s Khushal Public School for Girls in Mingora, Swat (named after her brother) and admits, “Had there been no BBC, no New York Times and no media channels, my voice would have not reached the people.”

I need not write more about the three idols the child worships. The Express Tribune named Malala in their list of
Game Changers 2011.

By sharp contrast, The Daily Ummat (Urdu daily published from Hyderabad and Karachi) of 15 October 2012 reported:
"Her diaries were written by BBC reporters; the daughter and father team met several times with American officials who assured them of full support."

It’s all a variation of the British ‘Great Game’ of the Raj days. In the 1950 film adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s novel, ‘Kim’, the half-caste British boy spy is caught spying by an Afghan; when the boy refuses to reveal his handlers, the interrogator remarks, “So much courage in one so young must conceal a deep secret!” This is the reason our little girl from Swat displays so much courage. It might be out of hatred for the Taliban that she speaks but her attempts to look good in the eyes of her real benefactors cannot be conveniently ignored.

Under my umbrella, Ella, Ella…

The job of most of the NGOs is to push non-issues and covert agendas down the throats of gullible individuals, communities and sometimes entire countries that refuse to follow the ‘approved’ directives of their foreign sponsors. Armed interventions usually follow when economic sabotage fails or the interests of the multi-national companies, powerful individuals and bankers are threatened. These days, whoever opposes them is labelled ‘Taliban’ or ‘al-Qaeda’. What label would the international gangsters want for themselves for covertly financing illegal and unethical activities—‘corruption on Earth’ as Allah describes it? The general public is too naïve to unfold the layers upon layers of meanings of official statements. The following facts are featured on various websites; by the time you read this they may eventually be either blocked or white-washed.

Standing right behind Malala is Miss Ella Rolfe of the FPC (Foreign Policy Centre) who holds an MA in Anthropology of Development from SOAS. After doing her masters she managed and trained a multilingual team of editorial and technical staff in commissioning and editing The Friday Times. Ella was the Features Editor for The Daily Times and The Friday Times of Lahore (these are owned by Najam Sethi, who in turn is a Trustee of the Asia Society in New York, and of The Leaders Project in Washington DC which was established by former US Defence Secretary Bill Cohen.

Ella wrote weekly current affairs opinion columns and joined the Institute for War and Peace Reporting (IWPR), where she now works as deputy head of programmes for Pakistan and Iraq. Her interests include the role of media, free speech and strategic communication in conflict resolution, particularly in South Asia. See her articles Pakistan's government plays second fiddle to the army and Pakhtunkhwa.

Ella is involved with Open Minds that has Malala’s father Ziauddin Yousuf Zai’s Khushal School on its list of beneficiaries. OpenMinds is run by IWPR (Institute for War and Peace Reporting) and is registered as a charity in the United Kingdom with branches in Europe and America. Ella was the Pakistan Program Manager and Programme Coordinator for IWPR. Hired to develop her idea for a youth journalism project, she won a £0.5m grant from the UK Foreign Office. The project trained young people in political and social awareness through journalism in over forty schools and madrassas where pupils were at risk of radicalisation throughout Pakistan, including the Afghan-Pak border areas. To sum it up: some foreign governments first funded the ‘Islamist, extremist, terrorist, radical madrassas’ and later wanted them dismantled or turned into zombie Anglophile producing schools.

Former British Prime Minister and current UN Special Envoy for Global Education Gordon Brown submitted a petition to the United Nations in Malala's name; the slogan of which was: ‘I am Malala’. Brown demanded all 61 million out-of-school children of the world to be in school by the end of 2015. In November this year, Brown, instead of coming over to hand over a few power plants to Pakistan, is scheduled to personally hand the blueprint for this money-spinning idea to Benazir’s widower.

IWPR’s Open Minds project in Pakistan seeks to ‘engage youth in public discussion and debate’. It works in 42 state schools and madrassas across the country’s troubled areas–Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa (including Swat Valley), Karachi and the Federally Administered Tribal Area–training some 4,000 secondary school boys and girls, in basic journalism and discussion skills. The project’s young trainees have published a number of articles in Pakistani newspapers and a group in the remote northern area of Chitral has launched a radio show with all reports recorded by student trainees. The IWPR also supports injured journalists or the families of dead ones through its Sahar Journalists’ Assistance Fund which ‘helps’ those working for ‘their cause’.

Ella became Evaluation Consultant for Punjab Safe Motherhood Initiative, Pakistan (March 2008 – July 2008), which aimed at ‘evaluation design and production of a major report and recommendations on this UNICEF-funded project (which is linked to ICM International Confederation of Midwives, created in 1919 to work alongside UN agencies and other partners in ‘global initiatives’).

The Millennium Development Goals of such organizations are always set by the globalists who push agendas the masses have no clues about. If it’s any comfort to the sane, we already have a unified global government (UN), a universal army (NATO, UN Peacekeepers), highlighting of women and children’s issues to break up families through rebellion, creation of a universal religion through systematic and sustained attacks on revealed religion, promotion of gay-lesbian rights as ‘freedom of speech’ and ‘human rights’ issues. 193 countries (except Kosovo, Taiwan and the Vatican City) out of a total 196 are signatories to the UN charter
.
 
All this nicely connects with pro-eugenics Rockefeller-sponsored Planned Parenthood and other depopulation programmes (with links to Midwifery Association of Pakistan) that has its own Millennium Development Goals and even a report that analysed data from twenty health facility surveys, 150 community interviews, and interviews with project leaders and health facility staff. The report was disseminated to Pakistani provincial level policy makers, UNICEF and other international donors.


A world leader from Swat?

In July 2012, Malala attended the national Marxist Summer School in Swat. When the 32nd congress of the Pakistani Marxists opened on 9th March 2013 at Lahore, Malala's Marxist message was read out to the congregation:
“First of all I’d like to thank The Struggle and the IMT for giving me a chance to speak last year at their Summer Marxist School in Swat and also for introducing me to Marxism and Socialism. I just want to say that in terms of education, as well as other problems in Pakistan, it is high time that we did something to tackle them ourselves. It’s important to take the initiative. We cannot wait around for any one else to come and do it. Why are we waiting for someone else to come and fix things? Why aren’t we doing it ourselves?
I would like to send my heartfelt greetings to the congress. I am convinced Socialism is the only answer and I urge all comrades to take this struggle to a victorious conclusion. Only this will free us from the chains of bigotry and exploitation.”
It is clear, Malala has already brain-washed with Communist ideology and tutored in other disciplines by hidden teachers. She is being readied as a world leader by atheistic Communists who were created by the Capitalists. This girl needs to be watched closely as she has already been showered with international awards and tainted money.

Bible-thumping Qur’an-haters

The Muslims of the ‘third world’ have enough brains and resources to put the combined might and prosperity of the so-called first world’s ‘civilized world’ to shame. Historically, the Muslims of Medina did not beg for foreign aid in any sphere from a superpower; rather they fought the Godless status quo on all fronts and won. All Messengers of Allah tolerated name-calling and worse with immense patience, and never lost sight of their divinely-sanctioned missions. Atrocities are condemned by God, instead as Muslims we just need to understand and then counter the agendas hinted at in this article. Nobody needs to blow up schools, burn churches or hang people for insults; it is far more useful to expose the ‘peace-makers’ whose cover the Qur’an fully blew fourteen centuries ago:


(2:11) And when they are told, "Do not spread corruption on earth," they answer, "We are but improving things!" 
(2:12) "Oh, verily, it is they, they who are spreading corruption - but they perceive it not?"

One need only compare their promises of ‘improving things’ for us with those of Iblees, the disobedient jinn, about whom the Qu’ran states in 7:22:


"And he swore unto them, 'Verily, I am of those who wish you well indeed!' - and thus he led them on with deluding thoughts."

We could apply the last quoted verse to all extremists who play the tunes composed by the devil. Since the universal government belongs to the Sole Governor, the sorry case of Iblees is easy to understand. His was the first non-governmental organization with an army of devious supporters who were not fallen angels but rather fallen jinns or demons, and who exercised their limited free will to show arrogance and disobedience to God. Pick your side: God or Satan?

When Pakistanis complain, “There’s no system here”, what they do not realise is how the elites have corrupted the system through foreign aid and interference. Why are the elites petrified of establishing a legal system that derives its laws and inspiration from God’s Word?

Pause to think: if such ‘stone-age laws’ were applied here in full, what will happen to the sluggish and expensive courts and lawyers, the covetousness for medals, the greed for pieces of prime land, the ever expanding Defence Societies, the fun of foreign trips, the fake piety of government-sponsored Umra and Hajj packages, and the bullet-proof VIP luxury cars and protocol? The list goes on and on. Most so-called Islamic countries now sponsor radicals and extremists in other lands, follow policies of repression and regression since their being ‘founded’ by the colonists, and are ruled by men whom Allah will take to task on the Day of Judgement.

  6. So they (the CIA) entice a young girl into being a mouthpiece for imperialism and then in their best racist tradition activate their terrorist "assets" (which in this case meant to give a call to some sell-outs to get off their asses and shoot a girl) to gun down their own spokesperson, strategically at a time when the drone protest was "hot" in Pakistan to try to sway public opinion....but in essence it BACKFIRED...much like their landing of that Uncle Tom in the White House. Soon they might try to pull off a malala on him as well. We know what they do with their dictators/assets, after they've used them to their advantage.

  10. Via e-mail, from a shy fellow who has his head buried in the sand somewhere (Mon, 12 Nov 2012 16:53:50 -0800, PST):

    "This is another in a series of long articles and thought processes of blaming all ills/evils/wrongs about us on the conspiracy that the whole western, particularly the jewish collective is out to get the muslims.
    If we muslims are so weak and corruptible then what does it say about us. I can cite several incidents where the barbaric acts of common people amongst us can put the human race to shame so please lets not always pick up the blame game and absolve us of all our sins. I would have appreciated if the writer had a more balanced view. We need to confront the devil in us before pointing to the devil there. Or our condition will be the same rotten one as is today. More later."

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    And I replied:

    "Thanks for reading and sending in this reply. It's amazing how people refuse to SEE and FEEL like a believer ought to? How they take oaths of bearing true allegiance to the Queen and what have you?
    Thank God, we'll all be judged individually.
    Since you have not read all of what's on my website, wishing that I had a 'more balanced view' is a strange charge.
    My 'long articles' made the mainstream media rats bury themselves deeper into their holes; none could refute what I wrote, instead some sneered and found faults in my language and grammar! Ah, the detractors, the doubters.
    Pakistani Muslims today are weak because those who can contribute to the effort run away from the country that MADE them. We confront issues over HERE the way we can and while facing shortages of necessities that people out THERE take for granted.
    Anybody who has not STUDIED what's really going on will parrot the same 'WE are corrupt, THEY are not our corrupters' untruth. This God-cursed ‘THEY’ must be understood and exposed.
    When God asked the first couple 'do not approach this one tree, lest you become wrongdoers' (2:35), Iblees was already behind the ‘Bush' with a plan.
    You might argue 'why did God put him in that position?' Adam just knew God's simple command and not the details about the devil, which he was to learn later through disobedience leading to entrapment. The idea was to show the pair that evil and its sponsor are inherently worthless, and it is always good to remain under the Divine umbrella.
    Anyway, this 'clearly spelling out these messages' is for 'people who think' (10:24).
    Peace be unto you, brother, and may you quickly understand it all."

  21. Some commercial sympathy for Malala from pro-Musharraf Atiqa Odho:

    I love you Malala
    By Atiqa Odho
    Published in The Express Tribune, October 17th, 2012

    My dear Malala, I have been meaning to write something for you since you were attacked and have decided the best thing is to just write to you instead. What has happened to you is indeed horrific. I pray daily that you survive your terrible wounds and live. If God forbid you die, so much of what’s good in Pakistan shall die with you. As I write to you, my tears keep pouring from a very heavy heart. I, for one, shall never let anyone forget you in this country that I believe has let you down so very badly.

    As I have personally been involved in the Swat cause for the last four years and know how important it has been to the young girls there to acquire an education for a better life, your contribution has been absolutely tremendous. You and I have never met but I love you dearly Malala, because to me, you are just a beautiful child of 14, attacked by evil cowards, who felt you needed to be punished for being brave and compassionate — qualities that they obviously do not possess or understand.

    There is no way one can justify such sinful acts and still, we continue to sit and watch people hurt our women and children every day in this supposedly Muslim country of ours. What a real shame it is that they have hurt you just because you wanted to help your sisters educate themselves. They obviously do not understand that unless you are educated and know how to read and write, you cannot even read the Holy Quran that Allah has sent down for us to learn a true way of life from. Do they not realise that your mission was one of God’s, as He wants the female child to be able to read, write and seek the knowledge that He has sent down for everyone in the form of His Book. By attacking you, they have attacked the true meaning of our religion and must be punished on both counts.

    I wish there was so much more I could do for you. This letter seems so small compared with what you have done for Pakistan. Please remember that in the immediate term, things tend to seem very difficult and sometimes pointless, but in the greater sense and over time, you have achieved what no one else has been able to achieve for us to date. You have finally made people sit up and say ‘enough is enough’. You have made presidents, generals, scholars, clerics and civil society at large, collectively accept that your mission has been a great one. This acceptance is now hopefully going to encourage many to ensure that their daughters are educated and strong. Your cause is now also a global one as the world is looking at the Pakistani female child in a different light. It is this new light that shall enlighten us all, protect our children and give them a better future for they deserve something so much better.

    I pray that the injustice done to you shall be corrected at once and the criminals who have hurt you are punished publicly. Keeping past cases such as that of Shabana from Swat in view, unfortunately, justice seems to be a myth in our state. Just remember, regardless of what happens in this life, there is a greater court we shall all face one day. In God’s court, you shall stand tall and many shall have to bow before you.

    Bless you, for you have made my belief in humanity stronger and remember, I love you Malala!
