Mostly, I thought you all would like to see this quite dramatic video of the quite brave Pakistani actress Veena Malik standing up to the ravings of some Pakistani cleric.
And also, I thought the video serves as a good commentary on President Obama’s efforts to “reach out” to extremists like those in the Iranian leadership and his new multilateralist vision which counts on the support of members of the Arab league to conduct U.S. policy in the Middle East.
That is, we are somehow beholden now to people like this cleric, who are either on or just behind the thrones of many of the region’s rulers.
Please tell me if the cleric looks like someone you can reason with.
More evidence we shouldn’t have been so quick to throw Mubarak in the trash, BTW.
You’ll notice that Malik also goes after the Westernized-looking host of the show and the Pakistani media, which she obviously thinks is busy kowtowing to the extremists.
Would that the “moderates” in these countries be as brave as she. Then perhaps the Pakistani leadership wouldn’t be assisting us while also providing sanctuary for the Taliban.
