More On: Pakistan
On Sunday, a synagogue in Texas, the United States, was attacked. Four persons had been kidnapped by a gunman. The day-long siege at Colleyville's Congregation Beth Israel synagogue concluded in shooting, with all hostages freed unharmed and the suspect killed.
Pakistan has, without a doubt, carried out another another terror attack on the United States. 9/11 was also an act of terrorism perpetrated by Pakistan. The issue is that the mainstream media in the United States will not say it as plainly. The hostage incident in Texas was not a minor misdemeanor that American society should overlook. It was a terrorist attack, and Pakistan must be held accountable.
How is Pakistan Connected to the Texas Attack?
That's all there is to it. For more than a decade, the United States has had something that Pakistan has desired. It's a lady. A lady who attempted to assassinate FBI agents and US security authorities. She is presently incarcerated in the United States, where she is serving an 86-year term. Aafia Siddiqui is her name.
Aafia Siddiqui is a Pakistani neuroscientist who received her education at Brandeis University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States. After the 9/11 attacks, Siddiqui became known for his outspoken anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism. Handwritten notes discussing the creation of so-called "dirty bombs" and listing potential areas in the US that may be targeted in a "mass casualty strike" were discovered in her hands by American officials in 2008.
At a May 2004 news conference, the FBI and the US Justice Department characterized her as a "al-Qaida operator and facilitator," warning of intelligence indicating al-Qaida was planning an assault in the following months.
Pakistan Wants its Daughter Back
Guess what the Pakistan-backed hostage-taker at the Texas synagogue demanded? He urged American authorities to release Aafia Siddiqui. Since Aafia's conviction, Pakistan has demanded that she be released by the US. Following her conviction, Pakistanis rushed to the streets in huge numbers to show their support for the woman.
The Jamaat-e-Islami, Pakistan's largest Islamist party, conducted many demonstrations in her favor during the next few years. Her sister and children appeared on television shows dedicated to fighting for her release. In 2018, Pakistan's Senate overwhelmingly endorsed a resolution asking the US to discuss Siddiqui's liberation, citing to her as the "Daughter of the Nation."
Pakistan Has Conducted Terror Strikes Around the World to Free Her
In Pakistan's attempt to release Aafia, 57 innocent individuals have been slaughtered throughout the world. Pakistan has carried out terror strikes throughout the world and sponsored acts of violence in retaliation for her detention. Separately, the terror state has been attempting to persuade Washington to release Aafia Siddiqui as part of a prisoner swap deal.
Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), the Islamic country's brutal intelligence organization, is at the heart of all atrocities carried out in the name of Aafia Siddiqui. In Pakistan, Aafia Siddiqui is seen as a combatant by the military establishment. For this reason, individuals have been blowing themselves and others up for the sake of Aafia's liberation for the past 10 years.
Pakistan has a long history of harbouring anti-American terrorists. Need I remind you how Osama Bin Laden received a safe haven in Pakistan? And then, Aafia Siddiqui – because of whom Americans continue to be hunted down, is also a Pakistani. So, the real question is – when will Americans look at Pakistan for the monster it really is? The need of the hour is for Americans to realise that Pakistan exports terror across the world and that it must be taken down immediately.
Pakistan has nothing else to offer to the world. It is, after all, a bankrupt country with a lot of radicalism running through it. As a result, the only natural outlet for such people is to participate in acts of violence on behalf of the ISI all over the world. Pakistan is also the country that sabotaged America's operations in Afghanistan. Islamabad's assistance for the Taliban cost the United States dearly in the war-torn Afghanistan.
Only because Pakistan backstabbed the US – all while organizing strikes against it – did 20 years of conflict come to a halt. Nothing will truly awaken Americans to the threat posed by Pakistan if the incident in Texas does not.
