Fear doesn’t stop Chabad Movement

Ambassador Husain Haqqani. This dood spoke at the Hinckley Institute about a week ago.

From the New York Times:

Yet within hours after the news broke about the Holtzbergs’ deaths, young Chabad couples from around the world stepped forward, offering to move to Mumbai and continue the movement’s work.

Hopefully India and Pakistan can learn from them and not react the way the terrorists want them to. As Husain Haqqani said in this BBC interview, “Democracies do not fight democracies.” The fledgling Pakistani democracy and the nascent South Asian Peace process must continu. India must not react with violence, but with love. It’s how they won their freedom, and it should be how the win their peace. Cool heads must prevail in New Delhi, or the consequences could be disastrous.

From The Guardian:

The Indian government raised the country’s security to a “war level” yesterday saying it had certain proof of a Pakistani link to the Mumbai attacks.

The dramatic move prompted Pakistan to say it would end military operations against Islamist militants on the Afghan border, which are critical to the “war on terror”, for an “unwanted conflict” with Delhi.

In layman’s terms, this means that if anyone does anything stupid in the next little bit, three (3) countries will be f**cked up beyond all recognition. Even if ISI is involved, India should keep talking with the democratic government in Pakistan. Cooperation between these two nuclear powers is vital in the days and months to come. As an added bonus, a peaceful solution could provide a powerful example to the Islamic world of how to rein in militants.
