ISLAMABAD, July 27 (Online): Interior Minister Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao has said Pakistan will enhance cooperation with British security agencies in fight against terrorism adding that the tendency on involving Pakistan in every terror act however should now be stopped.

He said this while talking to a delegation led by UK High Commissioner in Pakistan Mark Lyal Grant which called on him here Tuesday in interior ministry.

Home secretary Kamal Shah, head of crisis management cell, Javed Iqbal Cheema and Britain deputy high commissioner were also present on the occasion.

During the meeting it was agreed that both the countries would step up the existing cooperation for elimination of terrorism. Cooperation between police and security agencies of both the sides would also be boosted.

Interior Minister assured that Pakistan would extend full cooperation to British government in its probe into London bombings, as Pakistan itself wants to eradicate terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.

There is need to narrow down the bridge of mistrust between Islam and West, he stressed. The trend to involving Muslims particularly Pakistan in every terror act should come to end nows.

British High Commissioner thanked the Interior Minister for the cooperation and assistance of Pakistani security agencies in the process of investigation into London bomb blasts.

A delegation from Kenya led by Pakistan ambassador in Kenya, Anwar Kadwai also called on the Interior Minister.

Talking to the delegation, Aftab Sherpao said government was committed to root out extremism from the country. However the motive behind our campaign is not to target religious seminaries. Only a few Madaris impart training of extremism. Majority of these Madaris are imparting education to the poor students. However, admission into Madaris to foreign students will not be allowed without the security clearance and prior permission of the government.

Pak-Kenya relations will be strengthened in various areas of activities, he remarked.

You are being fooled

People of Pakistan, your president is not able to rule your country with peaceful means, so he uses jihadis in all parts of your country against you in international affairs. The Pakistani is an international fool just because of Musharraf.

To end terrorism, solve Jewish conundrm

Britain should know the world's greatest terrorists. A bestseller Book "End of Empire" portrays Britains disgraceful exit from Palestine at the hands of the Jews for whom the former had created a "homeland" for the fleeing Jews from Hitler's holocaust. Leave the British police aside. The British military surrendered to the terrorist attacks by the fanatic Jews. Well, well, the types of Osama and Amir Umar of Afghanistan would stand as Lilliputs compared to the Jewish gangs in Palestine. Some excerpts would be provided in another input.

It is quite evident that the whole world, alas, is groping in the dark. The real trouble lies with the Jews. Throughout their history, notes an eminent Jewish writer, Chaim Bermant, the Jews have either been found troublesome or in trouble. It was, paradoxically, Islam that provides them both refuge and peace. Let us look at facts. Could anyone dislodge Israelis from the territories of occupation in Palestine? No, you would agree. It is a great irony that even "Abu Mazen" Mahmoud Abbas hasn't come to terms with history. He should know that an imminent exodus of the American Jewry is about to push the Palestinians from the West Bank to accommodate the influx of the American Jewry. Palestine doesn't belong to anyone. Any doubts? Read the Qur'an: "Said Moses to his people", as mentioned in a verse in sura Al-A'raf, "
"the earth belongs to Allah. He bestowes its possession to whom He likes, and (the essence of the verse) the hereafter belongs (only) to the God-conscious." Why did Moses was ordained to spell out this edict to his people? The answer is clear in that the Jews were to be exiled from the land due to their inequities. One wonders if what the Palestinian boys are doing in the Holy Land is not inequity. For one thing, there is going to be no room either for the Palestinians or even for the evangelicals and the Presbyterians in Israel. What a paradox that Israel itself is an illegitimate creation according to the admission of Jewish orthodoxy. Would a sensible leader like to create a state for its people that is marked for the "Armegeddon"? Where the existing state (Israel) is illegitimate (and profane according to the religious Jews), is there any logic in seeking another creation of state for the Palestinians? Frankly speaking, it appears that a weeding out process is taking place in Palestine.
The key to solving the conundrum in Palestine lies with the Muslim Ummah. Jews are reported to be rarely in control of their destiny. Their fate is intertwined with islam. It started when the Caliph 'Umar ended the Jewish banishment from Jerusalem, as well as the Sultan Saladin who, after freeing Jerusalem from the Crusaders, allowed Jews to livew in Jerusalem. Best solution lies in allowing world Jewry a refuge in Palestine -- the West Bank represents the cradle of Judaism -- and re-recognize Israel as a "Safe Haven" place for the Jews. That would accord the Jews a de facto recognition as a people and open up for them the channels of trade and commerce, without which they cannot long survive. The Jews are incapable of solving their problems. Their mentor, Bush is pursuing a different agenda. The "exodus" of the imminent American Jewry would bring the American people to their senses (one hopes).
You know where does the hitch lies? I am in touch with importantArab diplomats and they acknowledge my views. Even the British P.M. Tony Blair has "carefully noted" the views I expressed in a letter addressed to him. The hitch lies in feeding and messaging the pride of the Arabs!That is the cutting edge of diplomacy.
