Okay, I say Foreign Minister immediately threaten Israel with nukes and raise an Army and lead them to Israel. General Shah Mehmood Qureshi.Diplomacy, is not just talking, but laying down the consequence as well if certain things are not done or achieved, and thats on behalf of the state, FO is tasked with. It happens everywhere. At the moment, Qureshi is the only face of Pakistan visible on this issue, Bajwa is not doing his "military diplomacy". So it must be assumed that this path of "raising issue" and "protesting" is all brain child of FM Qureshi. Obviously, this approach is a non starter will achieve nothing. So naturally all criticism will be directed towards Qureshi.
I am not interested in his "Challangain". There are many people I have seen in my professional life who try to look busy for the sake of it but achieve nothing. This has got the same vibes.
If the precedent is built against the settler-colonialism in Palestine, then the case of making the same argument against the Indians in Kashmir will be much easier. (Hindu extremists are supporting what Israel is doing, and while the Indian government officially states it supports the just Palestinian cause, you won’t see them being a strong advocate because they know the tables can be turned on them in a similar manner)When will we do something about Kashmir? Our sympathies are with Palestine, but who will stand with pakistan when it comes to Kashmir?
I agree. But whose fault is that? Pakistani people. You see how crazy they went on PDF. Some asking for sending the army etc. Qureshi is part of a political government. Politicians feel the pulse of the public. If media nad Pakistan public is going crazy about Palestine it would not look good if Qureshi was sat in Islamabad. So he has to act and showbazi by taking photo ops with Turkish FM, Palestinina FM etc to show the stupid awaam that he is on a jihad like PDF warriors were on a jihad on the Gaza thread.he is simply wasting money of poor pakistanis which deserve better treatment then gaza .
I have never been comfortable with SMQ as FM. He hardly talk or represent the ground realities, nor the wishes of majority of Pakistani citizens. You always get this negative vibes about him that he represent the western narrative. Besides, he is an old fashioned diplomat, in this day and age, you need someone who can do some hard talking. Shireen Mazari would have been a better choice, even though she got some luggage.No disrespect to our FM at all but the last time I listened to him in one of the current affairs program his answer to the question of “do we see any kinetic (military) response to this time by any Country since time is running out” was something like:
“Dekheiyey yey koi gudda gurya ka khel nahi horaha hey ... aap or mein or humarey saathi muslim mumalik ke sarbarhaan achi tarhan jaantey hein ke is issue ka hal “baat cheet” mein hey ... dekhiyey hum koi aesa qadam jald baazi mein nahi uthayengey jis se humarey or saathi Arab mumalik mein dhooriyan peda hon...humarey khayaal mein is masaley ka hal kinetic response nahi hey”
And I was thinking you should read posts on PDF and probably you will get boost of gherat e Imaani as well as some better ideas ... may be ... or may be not
What a childish response. I am sure you know what I meant, but hey , whatever floats your boat.Okay, I say Foreign Minister immediately threaten Israel with nukes and raise an Army and lead them to Israel. General Shah Mehmood Qureshi.
Different “Cases”/crisis come up time and again, there just need to be one precedent that gets through to create a paradigm shift. The opposition has to win all the time, the Palestinians just need to win once to get the ball rolling.and if this "precedent" fails, what happens then?
