CARTOON INTIFADA THREATENS MUSHARRAF



The cartoon intifada continues unabated. If you do not believe me watch this video of the police dispersing Islamists protestors pelting them with rocks. They hope to use the cartoons to take over the Pakistani government which has not only cooperated in the overthrow of the Taliban but is also pursuing accommodation with India in Kashmir.

Hence,"The six-party alliance of religio- political parties in Pakistan will hold an emergency meeting to discuss future strategy against the blasphemous cartoons."

Who will pay? As usual the Pakistani people:

Businessmen in Pakistan feared losing four billion US dollars in exports in case the government decided to boycott European Union products in protest at the blasphemous cartoons.

Indians and Chinese could immediately capture the European export market if the boycott was formally announced, reported `Dawn' newspaper here on Saturday.

The newspaper said that hundreds of thousands of Pakistanis could go jobless and there could be bigger hunger marches on Pak streets in the future.
