Another Healthy Dose of Anwaar Hussain

Once again, my favorite Pakistani prophet has spoken out against the Bush regime with clarity and lucidity. Once again, the Pak Tribune has printed what no US press outlet dares to.

This September 11, as the swirling ashes of the Twin Towers continue to descend far and wide, it is a full five years since the start of the American Inquisition. September 11, that heinous crime that should have been registered in the nearest NYPD precinct that same evening to begin a relentless hunt for the criminals by that precinct’s homicide detectives, has instead turned out to be Manna from Heaven for the flag bearers of the new Inquisition.

Over the course of history, the word inquisition has been restricted to refer to Spain in the Middle Ages. But if one seeks to explain the dangerous mix of religious prejudice, Christian holy war, Islamic jihad, ethnic profiling, racism, mock trials and eavesdropping by secret police, no other term comes to mind. Not only that, like the export of the Spanish Inquisition, the American Inquisition too has been taken to the far flung corners of the earth. The torturing of victims in secret dungeons remains the same. Missing are burnings at the stake, but given the hideous wonders that white phosphorous can perform on human flesh, and in far less time, who requires such an inefficient procedure?

Although it's common knowledge, one never tires of quoting the prophetic words of President of the United States Dwight D. Eisenhower, spoke by him during his farewell address to his nation on January 17, 1961:

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or our democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."

One notes with great irony that, riding on the back of the crime of September 11, a powerful cabal of Americans has dealt a death blow to the deceased President's momentous words, almost word by word. Not only has the "misplaced power" arisen "disastrously," but with "violent method," they continue to use the awesome power of America's military to achieve sinister "goals" while withdrawing the "liberty" of Americans, and in the process, making them ever less "secure."

...So this 5th anniversary of that dreadful crime, as President George W. Bush sits in his predecessor’s chair gorging himself on 9-11 Manna from Heaven, with the flag bearers of the American Inquisition lurking just in the background, let me remind readers that President Dwight D. Eisenhower had finished his prophetic farewell speech with the following words;

"To all the peoples of the world, I once more give expression to America's prayerful and continuing aspiration:

We pray that peoples of all faiths, all races, all nations, may have their great human needs satisfied; that those now denied opportunity shall come to enjoy it to the full; that all who yearn for freedom may experience its spiritual blessings; that those who have freedom will understand, also, its heavy responsibilities; that all who are insensitive to the needs of others will learn charity; that the scourges of poverty, disease and ignorance will be made to disappear from the earth, and that, in the goodness of time, all peoples will come to live together in a peace guaranteed by the binding force of mutual respect and love."
[Emphasis added]

Why, yes, I believe Mr. Hussain has once again nailed it.

No one who has been listening to the Emperor, Vice-Emperor, and Secretary of Blowing Things Up can doubt that we are in fact involved in a 21st Century Crusade against Islam, coupled with the punitive power of the Inquisition. Even the Pope has chimed in to support this Holy Cause.

And while happily burning, pillaging, and raping the rest of the planet, the regime is at the same time systematically dismantling the very freedoms guaranteed by the US Constitution here in the US in order to complete the process. Congress, at least up to this point, has quite cheerfully cooperated and colluded with the regime every step of the way.

I am reminded of the lament of more than one Old Testament prophet: "How long, O Lord, how long?"

I pray just until November.

Amen.
