Muslims are pre programmed for Jihad , as the Koran states clearly that Jews and Christians can never be friends of Muslims ?
Agha H Amin
This was a discussion post and posting does not mean endorsement of the idea . The idea was to generate discussion and I think there were brilliant inputs.
Unfortunately some participants were carried away by their emotions and assumed on basis of their own preconceived ideas that I endorse this theme.
I agree that the majority does not suppose extremism.
However a significant minority , who have guns and guts and funds may overtake the majority.
A sizeable silent portion of the populace sympathise with the extremists and this number is increasing.
The NATO idea , based on discussions with various officers who I cannot name , is that the Afghan Taliban are supported by Pakistani military , so the TTP which attacks Pakistani citizens only is a NATO response , through third parties to teach a lesson to Pakistani state duplicity.
This is a complicated picture but one which has to be given serious thought.It took NATO 5 years to realise that General Musharrafs military regime all along had secretly supported the Afghan Taliban .
Recently an ex Pakistani DG ISI on record stated that OBL was provided sanctuary by General Musharraf officially.I am not endorsing this view , nor rejecting it .
