When I saw that headline - 'US declares Afghanistan a major ally' - in our own ABC news here in Australia, I nearly fell off my chair.
The article as it appeared in the ABC, based on AFP/ Reuters, included the following passage: "...an exclusive club of nations that enjoy privileged ties with the United States. Other countries with that designation include Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Israel, Egypt, Japan, Jordan, Korea [that is, South Korea, of course - CM] and Argentina".
'Some of these countries are not like the others, some of these countries do not belong...".
'Allies'? 'Major allies?' Islamic Afghanistan, where a yelling crowd of Mohammedan males watched while a 22 year old woman was shot to bits on what may well have been a trumped-up or imaginary charge of 'zina'? Fanatically Islamic Pakistan...?? Where Asia Bibi, a Christian, sits on death row, for the 'crime' of having refused to convert to Islam, and thereby committing 'blasphemy' - because her refusal implied Mohammed's inferiority to Christ, and was therefore 'insulting', and where Hindu and Christian girls, scores at least every year, are simply seized by gangs of Mohammedan males, and sometimes raped and dumped, and more often raped, and drugged, and brutalised, and terrorised, and then paraded publicly as 'converts' to Islam (some of them are only little girls, ten or twelve or thirteen; one was seized from her family home at gunpoint; and some of them are married women, Christian and Hindu, whose marriage vows, from the viewpoint of sharia, simply do not count)? Islamic Egypt, where the same things that are done to Hindu and Christian girls in Pakistan, by Muslims, are done to Coptic Christian girls, by Muslims, again to the tune of dozens, or scores, or even hundreds, per year, with the total connivance of the police, judiciary and government? And Jordan, where women are regularly 'honor' murdered? None of these vile countries should be considered for one moment as a 'major ally' of the US or of any other non-Muslim state, for that matter.
Indeed, if non-Muslim governments and peoples truly understood Quran surah 48: 29, and the extent and depth to which the principle of al wala wa al bara, Loyalty and Enmity, pervades Muslim societies and governs their attitude toward non-Muslims - toward all non-Muslims, everywhere - then no non-Muslim entity would ever be foolish enough to enter into any sort of agreement or alliance with a Muslim entity. How can one ever ally oneself with a person or group whose ultimate aim - pursued with fanatical fervour, inculcated in every mosque and madrasa and every mainstream, orthodox Islamic text - is one's absorption into a mind-numbing death cult, or one's enslavement/ subjugation as a near-slave dhimmi, or one's utter destruction?
