An anti-terrorist judge in France has thrown weight behind claims that the murder of American journalist Daniel Pearl and the bombing of French engineers in Karachi both had their roots in murky arms deals with Pakistani officials. By FRANCE 24 (text)

In 2002, two brutal terrorist attacks targeting westerners in the Pakistani city of Karachi shocked the world.

In January that year, the American journalist Daniel Pearl was kidnapped before being beheaded in cold blood by his captors. A video was later released showing his execution.

Three months later, on May 8, a bomber targeted a bus carrying French n

What a surprise.

Let Obama, Napolitano, Holder and all their Muslim cohorts know and read this that I despise Islam theocracy.

It is my 1st Amendment right to say the above and that Islam is incompatible with western civilization. Islam immigration to England and other parts of Europe is destroying their culture.

We read every day where the Muslims are raping European girls/women, and mutilating and killing their own women. There is no longer any excuse to believe that cult is in any way compatible with democracy or decency.

Good luck on that Egypt Muslim Brotherhood, you dumb asses. Just wait till they align with Iran. Obambi, once I saw you bow to the king of Saudi Arabia, I knew you were a traitor to western values.

Oh, and guess what Bambi, Jimmah Carter now says that the USA has become a major civil rights abuser. Thought you were going to "hope to change" all that? You're an epic failure, Hussein. You're also a fraud, but then so is Jimmah Carter. Question is, which one of you is the worse?

“The implication of Pakistan’s secret services (ISI) in both cases is “no longer in doubt” added Le Parisien.”

So, the ISI arranged Daniel Pearl’s murder. But wait a second!

“On October 12, 2006, Time magazine reported that “KSM confessed under CIA interrogation that he personally committed the murder.”[40] On March 15, 2007, the Pentagon released a statement that Mohammed had confessed to the murder.[41] The statement quoted Mohammed as saying, “I decapitated with my blessed right hand the head of the American Jew, Daniel Pearl, in the city of Karachi, Pakistan. For those who would like to confirm, there are pictures of me on the Internet holding his head.”[42]

According to an investigative report published in January 2011 by Georgetown University, the Federal Bureau of Investigation used vein matching to determine that the perpetrator in the video of the killing of Pearl was most likely Mohammed, notably through a “bulging vein” running across his hand.”

So basically, the unstated bombshell in this story is that the ISI was working hand in hand with the operational leader of Al Qaeda, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Some of us FReepers, of course, already figured that one out a long time ago.

Poor Daniel Pearl. The magnitude of that inhuman act was mind boggling. They slaughtered him with less regard than a farm animal.

Darn. From the headline I thought someone was getting back at the murderers.

Our wonderful pals the Pakistanis.

How much loot have we given them in the form of foreign and military aid in the past ten years?

“Here’s some money, my dear friend, now kick me in the b*lls again.”
