Another terrorist attack in New York City

A few days ago, a terrorist allegedly tried to detonate a pipe bomb near the biggest bus terminal and subway station of the country, injuring four people and also injuring himself and in the process getting caught. The alleged suspect told police that he was inspired by Islamic State (IS) propaganda and wanted to harm as much people as possible and that he acted alone in its name. He had a wife and a six month old son in Bangladesh from where he immigrated to the U.S. in 2016. Apparently he did not give a crap about his family and only wanted to create harm to innocent people because he was supposedly angry about some U.S. policies against Muslims. This kind of lone wolf attacker is hard to catch because they can be anyone out there doing regular jobs but in the spare time maybe plotting attacks against everyday normal people.

On top of this, the family of the suspect says it is outraged about the investigators tactics as one of the relatives of 16 year old was taken out of high school and questioned without the presence of a lawyer. Apart of this the family is saddened and devastated about the whole event. But are they truly saddened or just pissed off that now the whole inquiry will be focused on them and they will have trouble in the future to bring their more family members in and their whole life history is going to be scrutinized. I don’t want to be nasty about it but enough of these lone wolf pledges to IS group and enough of shedding ignorance and being innocent in the whole process. If these so called Muslims want to be integrated to the western society and still maintain their ways, they have to come forward and provide assistance to law enforcement authorities right away instead of ignore the problem in their midst.

Jerusalem as Capital of Israel-2

Now look at the reaction that the so called Islamic world did. They called a meeting of the ineffective OIC (organization of Islamic countries) and declared their so called solidarity with the Palestinians which means it is not going to do anything except put out words backed by nothing concrete. There are so called 57 Countries in the ineffective OIC and they are more concentrated at containing Iran than in dealing with Israel. Even some so called Islamic countries in their hatred for Shiite Iran deal clandestinely with Israel. The matter of Jerusalem being the capital of Israel is just not the important in the Islamic or for that matter Arab national as they are at each other’s neck trying to sabotage whatever little unity they have based on a shared religion (or is it really). Even if the United States hadn’t declared it the capital of Israel, Israel always believed it was and it knew that the Arabs and the Muslim cannot do anything about that claim.

At the end of the day it is the Palestinians (with some help from Iran and maybe Turkey) will be doing the heavy lifting of protesting and confronting Israel as the wealthy Islamic nations and close ally of the United States can’t do anything since this conflict started many decades ago. Word of condemnation not followed by any action is useless and looking by the situation in the so called Islamic world, it is entirely believable that Palestinians will be subject to Israeli laws and the concept of two nation theory, which I never subscribed too before and neither did any of the Islamic nations will be just a dream forever.

Jerusalem as Capital of Israel

The United States after several decades’ long policy decided that it is time to recognize that Jerusalem is and will remain the Capital of Israel notwithstanding the outcry by the Muslim world and the warnings by its allies that it will create new unrest in the Middle East. And as it was predicted, the most noise has been coming from the Palestinians themselves with some pockets in other so called Muslim and Arab countries as these countries know that they cannot do anything except to protest silently. These so called Islamic countries are fighting among themselves and they don’t have the stamina or the strength or the military might to do anything about this decision. Obviously there was going to some violence and it will continue and it will surely embolden the jihadi elements but beyond the movement of the embassy will take years to do it and it is just a symbolic gesture by only one country.

This decision was not made out of blue but was one of the core campaign pledges of the current President, so people should not have been surprised about it as the President is elected by the American people and when he promised to fulfill his pledge, there should not have been any surprise element to it since the President has to go back to the American people to get elected the second time and he will be judged by how he has fulfilled his campaign pledge not by how the world reaction is to his decision.

Immigration hits a sour note

Since the unorganized immigrant opening in Germany the last two years, the world has woken up to being sour on the whole issue of Immigration, legal or illegal. The world and especially the west has become tired of allowing immigration and in the disguise of being tired have allowed the virus of racism to wake up again whether they realize it or not. I can understand that the war in Syria has created an avalanche of refugees fleeing it but in the disguise of refugees, there were some unscrupulous elements taking advantage of the situation and trying to creating havoc in their host counties. And it is these elements that have made the trek of future refugees a lot harder. The German decision to open up its border to more than one million refugees was not a wise decision as it has created an era of hostility among local people and has given rise to far right and ultra nationalist in those countries.
If it is was possible, Germany should have gradually opened up its border and increased it intakes of refugees slowly and incrementally so there is no backlash against them in their countries. Even if the host countries (namely European) population are falling, still they do not want refugees who have a different, religion, race and ethnicity overwhelming their cities in such vast numbers and as the number of terror incidents have shown that even if there has been no terrorist among the refugees, the fact that the long wait to have legal status and staying in camps with inadequate facilities can make even the most patient person resort to desperate measures like attacking other people because he/she don’t see his/her situation improving anytime soon due to the long backlog of having legal statues. The unrelenting refugees crisis from poor African countries and central and Latin American countries have created a backlash in their host countries for even the legal immigration. But I fear that the lure of earning a decent living without a fear of violence or crime and stable economies of the rich countries will always have the attraction of the downtrodden.

The puzzle of illegal immigration

I have been reading news about how people who have been here illegally for the last two or three decades and have been the so called model citizen are being arrested and deported back to their home countries and some Americans have been protesting this because the illegal have not done anything wrong or have not even any traffic offenses and they did not commit any crime. This false sense of hope was given to them courtesy of the Obama Administration in which law enforcement was instructed to go after illegal immigrants who have committed a crime and have ignored deportation orders. But the decades old residents also have several appeals pending in the immigration courts and they ignored them as I previously said they felt secure that they if they work hard and don’t break the rules, they will not be deported. I can understand that some of the people are upset about some outstanding people who have married and raised their families and build their lives are being deported.
My puzzlement comes to the fact that people who have been here illegally for thirty years what were the waiting for to get their legal status and it was far easier when they came here. I don’t know people’s situation but it is really a big mystery for me that they married here, had kids, establish businesses but did not bother to become legal citizens when they could have during the previous times. Sympathy aside, all the rallies in support of these long time illegal residents fails to ask this simple question, why you did not bother to regularize your stay here and become legal citizens when you had more than twenty years (on average) to do it?

NISA empowerment:much needed

Growing up as an Asian female child is like "survival of the fittest"! i was raised up as a perfect example of, “the strong, independent women “but then LIFE HAPPENED.I got to know that people all around us don't want women to be powerful or independent, the words were; women are supposed to be 'timid,shy,vulnerable,nervous,faint hearted,pusillianamious and worst of all 'QUEEN OF THE KITCHEN'.I mean women don't have liberty for anything here in Asian countries(especially the developing countries),those who stand up to do anything are called ill-names and are criticized to such an extent that women in the rural areas in my country are being killed in NAME OF HONOUR.i have seen scenarios of maltreatment given to women in various parts of the world, but situation here is dire and requires SERIOUS AND PROFESSIONAL attention, an example of this is : two days back a women was killed just because she committed the crime of not serving her husband with warm, delicious meal. Let’s take another example from real life a patient of mine came with head bandage on her cranium,when interrogated it was found out that she was beaten by her mother-in-law, reason being, she served the family with under cooked food. These are just a few examples. CRUX OF THE MATTER is that my country requires women empowerment because of this malevolent mentality and strong ill-beliefs of people, women are deprived of basic right to education, carrying out a professional careers and many other acceptable rights to life.
NEED OF THE HOUR is, I need suggestions to implement strong steps for providing women with the basic rights. What would you do if you were one of the few privileged women; living in such circumstances???

The Egyptian slaughter

A few days ago a suicide attack was made on a jam packed mosque mostly frequented by Sufi Sunni Branch of Islam and a bomb was detonated and then some people started firing indiscriminating culminating in killing more than 300 people and injuring hundreds. It was the deadliest bombing in the modern Egyptian history and I was also a little bit surprised by the ferocity of the attack as it was on mosque packed by prayers who were not doing anything but to pray to the same GOD that the attackers supposedly prays too. Although I don’t believe there have been any claims of responsibility but it is expected that it is the Islamic State (IS) who think that Sufi Muslims are heretics and are not Muslims. Anyway it was a horrendous act of violence but it not big enough to register some action by the international community. It seems that the international community is happy to see Muslims slaughter each other as long as the violence does not affect the European Community and the Americas and other non Muslims nations. It is only my opinion but I was also believe that Muslims have also become indifferent to the violence that is occurring among their midst as the mind becomes numb to daily violence being happening and also the divide among the Islamic sects increase. My condolences to all who perished in this terrorist attack and prayers for the speedy recovery of the injured people.
