KJ Poll Result – 78% of KJ Fans believe Pakistan should immediately stop taking billions of dollars of loans from the United States of America

On 21st December 2017, following Trump’s blueprint for the United States national security,  KJ Vids ran a poll asking the fans “Should Pakistan immediately stop taking billions of dollars of funds, aids, loans from the United States of America?”

There were 1,700 votes from which 78% answered “Dam Right, Yes!” and 22% voted “No,no,no!”

There were hundreds of comments in the post which can be read on Facebook.

Should Pakistan immediately stop taking billions of dollars of funds, aids, loans (and every other code name for blackmail) from the United States of America?

Posted by KJ Vids on Wednesday, December 20, 2017

While announcing the national security approach, Trump asked Pakistan to take “decisive action” against terrorist groups operating from its soil, adding, “We have made clear to Pakistan that while we desire continued partnership, we must see decisive action against terrorist groups operating on their territory. And we make massive payments every year to Pakistan. They have to help.”

Since the time of former General Musharraf, Pakistan has provided the United States unabated support in her so called war on terror. Unsurprisingly the biggest victim of this war has arguably been Pakistan with thousands of civilian casualties.

Before Pakistan joined the war on terror, suicide bombings and insurgency was unheard of to the wider Pakistani population. But now the term “Deshat Gard” is a household term. The war on terror has led to the devastation of millions of people whose lives have been caught up and implicated in America’s geopolitical games due to the political, economic and social turmoil created in the country because of it.

Sadly, the rulers of Pakistan have failed to take a courageous stance against America whilst others are taking advantage of America’s waning influence in the World. China has been able to push back America from it’s region and Russia is showing more assertiveness in the periphery of Eastern Europe.

The good news is that, majority of Pakistani’s appear to believe that America is the primary cause of this trouble and as our poll suggests majority clearly want Pakistan to sever the economic dependency on America that the Pakistani establishment has foolishly created.

With a young, disenfranchised and Islamically inclined population of Pakistan, it will be interesting to see if they will be able to take control of their own political fate in the future.

Pakistan's Geopolitical Strength

Pakistan has been blessed with an advantageous geography that could provide it with significant political leverage in the international arena, if it wished. The outlook of strategists in Pakistan should be that America and China needs them, not the other way around.

Pakistan ‘obliged’ to help US, says Trump

WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump, while unveiling his new national security strategy, reminded Pakistan that it’s obliged to help America because it receives “massive payments” from Washington every year.

“We have made clear to Pakistan that while we desire continued partnership, we must see decisive action against terrorist groups operating on their territory. And we make massive payments every year to Pakistan. They have to help,” said the president while addressing his nation from the Ronald Reagan building in Washington.

This was the only reference to Pakistan in his speech, although the 56-page document that he released deals with it in more details, urging Pakistan to “continue demonstrating that it is a responsible steward of its nuclear assets”.

The policy paper also says that “the United States continues to face threats from transnational terrorists and militants operating from within Pakistan”.

The new strategy, however, focuses more on the domestic front and identifies two “greatest transnational threats” to homeland security: Jihadist terrorists and international criminal organisations.

And to prevent jihadists from entering the United States, it suggests tightening America’s immigration system by ending lottery visas and chain migration, which allows family members of a US citizen to settle in the country.

The plan also reinforces President Trump’s pledge to build a wall on the US border with Mexico to prevent illegal immigrants from entering the United States.

The paper says that the jihadist use “barbaric cruelty to commit murder, repression, and slavery, and virtual networks to exploit vulnerable populations and inspire and direct plots”.

The strategy identifies four vital national interests, or “four pillars” as:

Protect the homeland, the American people, and American way of life; Promote American prosperity; Preserve peace through strength; Advance American influence.

Top on the list of external threats are “revisionist powers”, such as China and Russia, that “use technology, propaganda, and coercion to shape a world antithetical to our interests and values”.

Regional dictators are the next because they “spread terror, threaten their neighbours, and pursue weapons of mass destruction”.

Then come the jihadist terrorists who “foment hatred to incite violence against innocents in the name of a wicked ideology”.

Transnational criminal organisations, last on the list, are blamed for spilling “drugs and violence into our communities”.

The White House says that the strategy articulates and advances the President Trump’s concept of “principled realism” and acknowledges the central role of power in international politics.

The domestic part of the new policy suggests targeting threats at their source: confront them “before they ever reach our borders or cause harm to our people”.

It promises to redouble efforts to protect critical US infrastructure and digital networks and also underlines the plan to deploy a “layered missile defence system to defend America against missile attacks”.

The new strategy says that America will use its energy dominance to ensure international markets remain open, and that the benefits of diversification and energy access promote economic and national security.

It promises to rebuild America’s military strength to ensure it remains second …

Amazon Creeps to Middle East Market

Earlier this year in March 2017. Amazon confirmed that it has acquired Souq.com, an e-commerce marketplace serving the Middle East based out of Dubai, which was already commonly described as “the Amazon of the Middle East.” Amazon did not disclose the price in a short statement announcing the deal, although rumours are that it was valued around $650 million.

Souq.com launched the Amazon Global Store on Sunday to allow UAE consumers to tap the US online store for more than one million American-offered products. Online shoppers in the UAE will have the option to purchase items ranging from apparel, shoes and handbags to home goods and watches, the company said on Monday.

Ronaldo Mouchawar, co-founder and chief executive of Souq.com, told The National that the company would add more selection and inventory. “Today we’ve started with more than one million products, but this is only Day 1,” he said.

Amazon’s acquisition of Souq marks the company’s first move into serving the Middle East region, which covers a total of some 50 million consumers across several countries, as well as a relatively untapped market: only about two percent of all retail spend today is made online, according to a report from McKinsey.

“Amazon and SOUQ.com share the same DNA – we’re both driven by customers, invention, and long-term thinking,” said Russ Grandinetti, Amazon Senior Vice President, International Consumer, in a statement. “SOUQ.com pioneered e-commerce in the Middle East, creating a great shopping experience for their customers. We’re looking forward to both learning from and supporting them with Amazon technology and global resources. And together, we’ll work hard to provide the best possible service for millions of customers in the Middle East.”

The acquisition of Souq is the latest move from Amazon to expand in the general region. Up to now, many of its moves in neighboring markets have been organic — that is, Amazon building its international operations from the ground up rather than through acquisitions.

Key Middle East Publics See Russia, Turkey and U.S. All Playing Larger Roles in Region

Read original on Pew Research Centre or read below;

Most do not expect Syrian war to end in 2018

Majorities across five Middle Eastern and North African countries agree that Russia, Turkey and the United States are all playing more important roles in the region than they did 10 years ago, according to a spring 2017 Pew Research Center survey.

While a median of 53% across the same countries also see Iran playing a more important role, fewer in the region say that Israel and Saudi Arabia have gained influence in the past 10 years. The only country the surveyed publics see as less influential a decade on is Egypt.1

Overall, a number of influential powers in the Middle East are not seen in a favorable light. Roughly one-third or fewer view Russia (median of 35%) or the U.S. (median of 27%) positively. Within the region, views of Iran are particularly poor (14% favorable), though Saudi Arabia fares better (44%).

Middle Eastern and North African publics also tend to rate leaders of other countries in their region negatively. A median of roughly one-third have positive opinions of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and Saudi King Salman. Views of Jordanian King Abdullah II are similarly low. And very few view Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu favorably, while a median of 12% have a positive view of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad or Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan is the exception to the generally negative views, but opinion of him is still mixed.

With respect to the ongoing conflict in Syria, publics are divided on how long they expect it to continue; a median of 26% expect the war in Syria to end in the next year, 32% expect it to end in the next five years and 29% think it will continue for more than five years. Overall, just 32% in Jordan are optimistic about the war ending in the next year, but 64% of Syrians living in Jordan expect the conflict will end in 2018.

Additionally, on the issue of allowing Syrian refugees into their country, people in Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon are strongly in favor of letting in fewer, with many volunteering “none” as the best option.

These are among the major findings from a Pew Research Center survey conducted among 6,204 respondents in Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Tunisia and Turkey from Feb. 27 to April 25, 2017.

Influence of Russia, Turkey, U.S. seen as increasing in the Middle East

Middle Eastern publics see both the U.S. and Russia playing more important roles in the region today than they did 10 years ago.

At least half in all of the nations surveyed say Russia is more influential now compared with a decade ago. Lebanon is particularly likely to say Russia’s role has grown, with Shia (81%) and Sunni Muslims (77%) sharing this view.

Majorities in four of the five nations surveyed also say that the U.S.’s prominence in the region has …

Should Erdogan cut political, economic and military ties with Israel and America for crossing a "Red Line"

Posted by KJ Vids on Tuesday, December 5, 2017

We decided to run this poll following the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital by Donald Trump. Following the announcement, the Turkish leader called Trump’s recognition of the holy city as a ‘red line’ for Muslims.

With Trump disregarding such warnings, the Turkish president used his position as the current chairman of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to call a summit of the group.

 

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has accused the United States of ignoring Palestinian claims to Israeli-occupied East Jerusalem and “trampling on international law”, has invited leaders from more than 50 Muslim countries to agree on a response.

Albeit years of rhetoric, Turkey in 2016 agreed to resume full diplomatic relations with Israel after the crisis triggered by the deadly storming by Israel of a Turkish ship seeking to break the Gaza blockade in 2010.

Trade and energy deals have prospered increasing year to year. Cooperation has resumed, most significantly in energy.

We wanted to see if our fans believed that Erdogan should follow through on his critical words with political action. The result was a resounding “Yes”

‘Beaten’ Palestinian boy in viral photo to face charges

Read original article by Farah Najjar on Al Jazeerah or read below;

A 16-year-old Palestinian boy, shown in a photo that has been roundly condemned as symbolising the Israeli army’s use of excessive force, has been accused of throwing stones at a group of armed Israeli soldiers.

An image of Fawzi al-Junaidi, blindfolded and surrounded by more than 20 Israeli occupation forces, was widely denounced as it was shared on social media earlier this week.

The scene pictures al-Junaidi looking disoriented, wearing a grey shirt and ripped jeans as dozens of soldiers crowd around him carrying guns and wearing protective gear, including helmets and knee pads.

The teenager, who denies throwing stones, was arrested on Thursday amid ongoing protests across the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip over a US decision on December 6 to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

In six days, at least 16 other Palestinians have been arrested for protesting. At least four have been killed in the violence since the US declaration, and more than 700 injured.

‘He was beaten with a rifle’

Al-Junaidi also denies accusations of “participating in protests”.

Witnesses have claimed they saw al-Junaidi throwing stones.

“He said he was fearful and was running away when tear gas canisters were being thrown,” his lawyer, Farah Bayadsi, told Al Jazeera. “Fawzi said he was beaten with a rifle and he showed up with bruises all over his neck, chest and back.”

She told Al Jazeera that the child would face formal charges in front of an Israeli military court on Wednesday, following an initial hearing on Monday.

“The police had called for an extension on Fawzi’s arrest during the initial hearing,” said Bayadsi, who works under the Defence for Children International – Palestine (DCIP).

“The prosecutor demanded a seven-day extension to the arrest so that they can prepare a list of indictments, but we refused. The list of formal charges will be announced [Wednesday] at the second hearing,” she said.

According to Bayadsi, the judge was stunned at the excessive force that al-Junaidi was subjected to – most apparent in the manner in which he was transferred to prison.

“He showed up with large slippers from the prison. He had lost his shoes and spoke about the way he was abused while being transferred to prison,” she said.

“The prosecutors didn’t even say whether the soldiers would be investigated for using excessive force. The whole case so far has been handled with neglect.”

Though unlikely, Bayadsi said the defence team would try to secure al-Junaidi‘s release while his case is ongoing.

“It would be easier to speak with him [and] other witnesses, and to gather more evidence,” she said.

‘He was not protesting’

Due to his father’s leg injury and his mother’s terminal illness, al-Junaidi had been the main provider for his family of nine.

His uncle Rashad said that he was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.…
