Spare me the Zionist conspiracies

Published: January 6, 2012

Why stop at Imran Khan? The people who attacked the Sri Lankan cricket team were part of a Jewish conspiracy to end cricket in Pakistan.

“The parts are Jewish!” screams Barry, an ill-tempered white convert to Islam, played to perfection by Nigel Lindsay in the critically acclaimed film, Four Lions.

The car has broken down and rather than admit to his friends that he hasn’t had it fixed, he claims, “Jews invented spark plugs to control global traffic.”

We’re meant to laugh at outrageous, outlandish accusations such as this, but this scene could be used to portray a sad reality in Pakistan. It highlights what is wrong with a large segment of our society.

Many Pakistanis seem to have this unhealthy obsession with conspiracy theories, especially those with a Zionist twist to them. Shows such as Zaid Hamid’s were the catalyst needed to bring this once fringe ideology to the forefront. My Facebook page is flooded with posts in this regard.

A close relative of mine is a proud Sialkoti and a staunch supporter of the PML-N. He watched with apprehension as Imran Khan’s PTI gained traction which culminated in hundreds of thousands of supporters flocking to jalsas in Lahore and Karachi. However, it was easier for him to believe that Imran Khan was being propped up and financed by a large Jewish consortium than to understand the fact that people are frustrated with the corruption and incompetence of the same old people that have been elected in the past.

Yay tu pakki Yahoodi party hai!”

(He’s a Jewish collaborator for sure!)

Why stop at Imran Khan? The people who attacked the Sri Lankan cricket team were part of a Jewish conspiracy to end cricket in Pakistan. The people who are blowing up mosques and killing innocent people around the country are also Jewish because Muslims could never kill other Muslims. Our cricketers caught up in the spot-fixing scandal too were wrongly implicated and maligned by the powerful Jewish lobby that controls the media, because they were obviously afraid that Pakistan was going to become the best team in the world. Even the doodhwaala (milkman) must be a Jewish infiltrator because no true Muslim would ever be involved in milawat.

The Veena Malik scandal, on the other hand, was a RAW conspiracy to disgrace the pristine image the world has of Pakistan.

In matters such as these, why should we let something as trivial as facts tell us otherwise? Who needs hard cold evidence when we know in our hearts that something is true?

Anyone can see that things are bad in the country. But rather than facing the problems, it seems as if a lot of us have developed a victim complex where we, the innocent and perfect Pakistanis, are being tormented by external forces.

These conspiracies seem to give us an easy way out of taking responsibility for the mess we are in, and that is extremely dangerous. In order to resolve any problems, we must first acknowledge the mistakes that have been made, otherwise there will be no advancement and Pakistan will be stuck in a rut.

We have elected one corrupt and incompetent government after another. Military dictators have come and gone. One leader after another has served every other agenda except the betterment of our country. Our public institutions are mismanaged and public funds embezzled. They have done us more harm than any foreign power can ever dream of.

We the people have ignored the rising rhetoric of hate in these so called Islamic seminaries culminating in the production of unhinged jihadis with no true knowledge of our religion. How difficult is it for the government to actually introduce a standard syllabus and carefully vet each and every seminary? It is a huge task for sure, but if the government was actually determined to do something about it, it is not impossible.

We the people have ignored the broken education system in the country. With knowledge comes power, with education comes progress. Millions of dollars in foreign aid meant to be utilised in improving our educational standards are squandered.

We ignore the destruction of schools for girls. These girls will grow up one day to become mothers. Educated mothers are vital for the progress of the future generations of our country.

There are many more problems we face. We can close our eyes and pretend we are blameless and we are perfect, but the problems will still remain, and only worsen as the time goes on if something is not done about it.

We can admit we have issues and try to resolve them, or we can be like Barry driving a broken car, blaming Jews rather than just getting it fixed.

That’s all the people of this country are keep gonna doing all their lives, Blame The Jew.. Btw just wait for the comments where you are yourself gonna be blamed to be a member of Jewish Lobby because you tried to put some sense in the Pakistani awam :p the JI protestors who we find every other day on our streets holding banners saying “Death to America, Death to Israel” and burning their flags every other day, if they actually spend that much time and energy on their work and on working towards prospering their families, they could do much better, but again, if they don’t wanna work, that also is because of Jews!Recommend

    A well well written article. I think Yahood and Hanood are better people and better humans than us. They care about their people. If there people are in danger in their country or abroad, the whole nation and government stand for them and make sure their people are safe.

    Yes Yahood and Hanood are better humans then us. I am a Pakistani and sometimes I am ashamed to be called one especially when i am travelling abroad. Pakistanis are like Dhobi ka kutta, na gher ka na ghaat ka….

    You may find my response offensive but honestly that is the feeling i have of us all. Now you can call it a Hanood and Yahood ki sazish but the fact is, we are bigger enemies of ourselves than bicharay hanood and yahood.Recommend

    There is a strong Zionist lobby that works in Western countries to support Israel. A lot of the things they do are highly immoral (obviously they are supporting a state that is doing many immoral things). Having said all of that, the Zionist lobby does not have much interest in Pakistan and never will. AIPAC, the largest member of the Israeli lobby states openly on their website what their objectives are (strong sanctions on Iran, get US to attack Iran etc) Also, it is pretty racist to call it a Jewish lobby or use Jewish and Zionist interchangably. Most Zionists in the United States are evangelical Christians (I can expand that to say most of the hateful people in the US are evangelical Christians.) On the other hand, there are many Jewish writers/academics who are very pro-Palestinian and pro-justice and equality (Noam Chomsky, Norman Finklestein etc). Many of the Palestinian activists in this country and leaders of the BDS movement are also Jewish. I would say that these two people (Chomsky and Finklestein) have done more to expose the nefarious activities of the Israeli lobby in the United States than any Muslim within the US or anywhere in the world. It’s really sad when “Jewish” is used as a derogatory term by rightwing parties in Pakistan…then these same people turn around and complain when there is (perceived or actual) discrimination against Muslims in foreign countries.Recommend

    Jews suffered all through their history.

    Egypt- pharos enslaved them
    Romans brutalised them
    Muslims wiped them off Arabian peninsula during Propeht Mohammed’s (PUBH) time.
    They were persecuted in Europe – almost all European countries.
    No need of mentioning Nazi atrocities. Muslim nations like Iran and Turkey shamefully joined hands with them to facilitate in the Holocaust.

    Now Pakistani conspiracy theories. Jews have over two hundred nobel laurates. How many among muslims? Jews : Muslims = 1: 100.

    My belief is to spread our religion peacefully by Tabligh which is 90% effective than Jihad.

    Yes the USA does have alot to answer for, but corruption, greed, honour killings, robbery, lies, cheating, hypocracy etc, these are all our own making!

    To overcome our national problems begins with taking responsibility for our own actions. Each and every pakistani needs to ask themselves “have i contibuted to making things worse eg. paying a bribe, lying to someone.”, then ask yourself “how can i make myself a better person”. If each and every one of us does this, and stop blaming others, we can turn things around for the better.Recommend

    “Jews and Zionist are different. Zionist are oppressors who are trying to drive away Palestinians from there homeland, where Jewish are normal everyday people.”

    @Rizvi: I’m a Zionist and I’m fine with Arabs staying – as long as they’re not out to slaughter and abuse Jews.

    The charge laid upon the Jews and Arabs by the British and the last Caliph at San Remo was that Arabs and Jews should respect the civil and property rights of each other both inside and outside Palestine. This the Jews have largely done, but the Arabs did not: the Jews were driven out of the other former Ottoman territories (and even Transjordan, 70% of the Palestine Mandate) while the Arabs were allowed to stay within Palestine. Building on the success of the Jewish expulsions and eager to gain the entire region for their own blood Arab community leaders used the slogan, “Al Yehuda Kalabna!” (“The Jews are our dogs!”) to incite their flocks to attack Jews for the next two decades; ironically the violence and the lack of justice prompted the move to a separate Zionist state.

    Sadly, at independence many Arabs chose to flee at the call of their leaders (blaming the Jews didn’t happen until Arabs started to create a Palestinian Arab “narrative” in the 1950s) while some communities (not all of these, either) who chose to prove their hostility by repeatedly harboring guerrillas were driven out. All were allowed to return to Israel and their property (or receive compensation) upon signing a loyalty oath and renouncing violence; about 25% did so. The result is that today about 1 in 5 Israeli citizens today is an Arab and I don’t see Israel undertaking any efforts to drive them out, now or in the future.

    The remaining Arabs chose to stay refugees. I suppose they either couldn’t stomach living in a country where they couldn’t rob and beat up Jews at will or they preferred the UNRWA dole to eking out a living in hard-scrabble villages. Upon pain of death as a “collaborator” both the taste for anti-Jewish violence and the arrogance of angry beggars have been passed down to their descendants.

    The Zionists thought that the newly-minted Pakistan would become a sympathetic friend but it was quickly made clear that Pakistan would choose not to recognize and trade with the Jewish State simply to preserve and promote Pakistan’s ties with the far more numerous Arabs who declared themselves Israel’s enemies. (That turned out to be a big mistake in more ways than one; the non-oil economic exports of the all the Arab states combined remained miniscule whereas Israel turned into an economic powerhouse.) Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think only when Pakistan surrendered its educational institutions to the Gulf Arabs in the 1970s and 1980s did Jew-hatred and Jew-conspiracies become popularized.Recommend

    Mani, I do not know for how long have you been in the UK but what I know is that staying in the UK and USA even for less than a year bring in a paradigm shift the way we think back in Pakistan. I am saying it because I have experienced it myself!
    As far as reality-check is concerned, you nailed it! But there is more to it obviously.
    You have termed Pakistanis as conspiracy-prone creatures, I would name the strategy as ‘shaping’ the mindsets. Blogs and stuff like these indeed are shaping our mindsets. Such discourse, as your’s, considerably influence how we may think and are desired to think. Positive message embedded in your argument is indeed home but there are a few twists to it as well.
    All and everything what happens in Pakistan is not a Jewish Conspiracy-accepted. But few of the events and incidents leading to these are indeed shaped. Now, this shaping happens in the backdrop of an envisioned end-state. So, powers or entities having stake somewhere do shape environment. While shaping does not necessarily promise envisioned end-state but makes it easier to achieve.
    End-state with respect to Pakistan in the emerging World order needs to be understood if we intend to solve this riddle. And, by the way this end-state is not plagued by conspiracy theories, let me assure you. It is based on facts and figures and can be proved with evidence and not covert evidence but open source!
    Today, every individual and states are subject to psychological warfare. Whether you agree or not, you, me and perhaps many around are tools in hands of those entities furthering their cause either intentionally or unintentionally. Well, those entities may not micro-manage, they can indeed try to achieve the envisaged ends. While serving as a tool of info cum psychological warfare, one may not even know whole his life!

    History always has had two faces, its always written in favor of the side its meant to be written for, I have lived in Pakistan all my life and though we do not study Middle Eastern history here, we our always told that Jews and Muslims lived together peacefully for hundreds of years, and they just started fighting just when Jews started the movement to have a Jewish state and they started to snatch lands from Arabs and drove them out
    However, when I moved to US I started reading the history myself, and I took contexts out of Jewish sources, and it showed a totally opposite side of the history, telling me how Jews were persecuted and were driven out of their lands, and how they were blamed for every problem in the empire, just like they were blamed in Nazi Germany, many people also believe this anti semitic behavior in Arab world was sponsored by Mid Eastern and Eastern European Christians, so out of frustration they demanded their own separate state..
    Whatever the history might be, the reality is that Israel exists today and its a reality which is not going anywhere.. Another reality is that Palestinian is a nation today which resides inside or just outside Israel. Its time for the Muslims to stop living in a fantasy world and accept Israel as a Jewish state, and its time for Israel to start treating the Palestinians better now and realize that innocent children are being killed because of the occupation of Gaza and West Bank, and the rockets fired by Hamas are not killing as many innocent Israelis as the Israeli strikes are killing innocent Palestinian children,
    Its time that both sides stop working towards peace and actually make peace, so that the rest of the world which is screwed up because of this conflict also takes a deep breath of relief,
    Obviously nobody wants to keep fighting forever, but these politicians won’t let the issue go so easily to fulfill their own betterment
    Many of the Muslim countries would have recognized Israel if there was not a huge right wing presence in our societies, and we may have actually been very helpful in resolving the Israeli-Palestinian issue, but instead we remained indifferent to many of the realities, and for the West, they have to be stop being indifferent too and start to consider Palestinians as people too and stop supporting Israel in every immoral thing done!
    In simple words, It takes two to tango
