I hope he's sincere about wanting a fair democracy in Pakistan but Tim Hortons coffee sucks. They do make awesome pastries though.

Democracy is incompossible with a religion that declares rape a suitable punishment for a woman who dares go outdoors without a male relative.

Good luck. We're a fairly secular nation while the cleric is a religious nutjob who's followers claim to see things written in clouds in the sky.

yup,,,,ok...Tim Hortons.

So I'm assuming this means that Karachi will have to build a big ugly square in the tourist part of town, that is kind of like a smaller, much uglier version of Times Square.

FTA: So my interpretation of Islam is a bit different from the mullahs.

That's the problem with Islamic cultures: They're founded on interpretations of the holy book made by people who haven't read it (often because they can't), focused through the lens of people with an agenda and amplified in an echo chamber of the ignorant. That's not a situation peculiar to Islam of course, but it does explain why theocracies without a functioning education system and freedom of speech end up the way they are. "What Islam says to do" is pretty much up to the whim of whoever has the most power. This yahoo thinks it's him.

Wow--it took only thousands of years, but it looks like the message is sinking in. The U.S. of A. better support this guy and his cause.

"We are trying to educate the people, to lead the people of Pakistan to work for democracy, to work for peace, to work for the rights of minorities, and to work for the rights of women and the empowerment of women...I was always busy in my research work ... writing books about tolerance and counter-terrorism, and running workshops."

That's not the frothing mug of crazy I was expecting.

Tahir ul Qadri told the National Post, "Islam teaches democracy, Islam teaches human rights, Islam defends the rights of minorities. Islam does not believe in discrimination."

Wait, there it is. Is this the same Islam that says democracy is evil because the people don't have the right to decide things for themselves because it's against the will of Allah?

"So my interpretation of Islam is a bit different from the mullahs. "

Oh. I guess it's not the same Islam. Carry on, then.

Right, because if the Islamist movement in Pakistan(and pretty much everywhere else) is about anything it's freedom and democracy(or in this case poutine and Tim Hortons)

/I DO NOT support the corruption of the current government in Pakistan but lets just say that this isn't the first violent, islamist, would-be-dictator who's made big promises about Pakistan.

Big NO, no we shouldn't. Obama and every other American should keep our damned mouths shut on the issue. The second our government or people support anyone over there, that person's chance of success goes straight into the hopper.

President Whackjob Amaloonyjad was behind in Iranian popularity, then Dubbya opened his damn mouth and the guy won by a country mile. The US comes out against the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and who winds up elected? The Muslim Brotherhood candidate... Who extols the virtues of teaching hate and murder in the name of Islam.
Of course that isn't the only reason those people won their elections, however our "influence" in the much of the Middle East is hardly what you could call "positive".
 
2013-01-16 08:43:32 AM
I hope it works out for him. I'd hate to see a guy that spent so long here soaking up our culture and mediocre coffee suddenly seize power and doom the word to nuclear Armageddon...it would be kind of embarrassing.
 
2013-01-16 08:47:46 AM
Isn't this the guy that was accused of saying one thing in one language and the opposite in another? Was there any truth to that accusation?

unchellmatt: and the guy won by a country mile


Well, a country mile and an election so heavily rigged that it could be a galleon.

unchellmatt: Big NO, no we shouldn't.


But this part I agree with. For starters, there's little the US could do to help, but more important: we have no idea how this will actually turn out. It wouldn't be the first time we've propped up a "moderate" only to discover that we made a terrible mistake.

If they focus all their violence to hockey instead of religion, then I could see this working. Once you tire yourself out fighting in hockey, you don't have the energy to be rude, much less violent.

I thought subby was making a joke with the Tim Hortons reference.

FTA: And he added, "I always loved it went I went to Tim Hortons there. I always drank Tim Hortons."

Donuts...is there anything they can't do?

No kidding. The US government should claim to support the current Pakistani administration, but not actually lend any real support. The government should fall within weeks.

You know who else regarded Canada as "Heaven"?

A cold, polite, quietly racist Heaven, as it turns out. Oh well, let me know when you need to set up an Underground Railroad and I'll start practicing my hymn-singing.

Swing low sweet chariot, coming for to carry me home!

Speaking of "you know who else ..." Hitler said of Canada that "a country so rich could not be poor no matter how badly it was governed." (quoted from memory, can't find the original at the moment)

Damned optimist. Some people seem intent on proving him wrong about the one thing he might have been right about.
