"You weren't reading me carefully if you think I was blaming the entire situation on American drones. Rather, I was expressing various points of view -- including my own, which is that we play a part, and bear some of the responsibility."

"I second to your comments Linda. Indeed drones are counter productive but I strongly believe just accusing America and Pakistan Army is not going to take us anywhere. In this situation everyone has to play their part including Pakistan…"

"The only way out of conflict in Pakistan is peace agreements. The Americans don't allow it, the fascist liberals in Pakistan are against it, hence no peace in the region. As someone who belongs to the region, I believe unless the Taliban are…"

"Is your argument that the Taliban targeted a 14-year old girl to express their anger towards U.S. drones? How about the misogyny factor? And the economic factor? Educating girls means increasing the pool of youth seeking employment in a war-torn…"

Malala, the Taliban and drones...they are all connected

(for a version with photos, visit here: http://paminprogress.tumblr.com/post/33367438693/talibanThroughout my stay in Pakistan, I have been noting similarities in the challenges faced by the people in the frontier regions here and in Gaza. Both populations are under daily threat by foreign drones (U.S. vs. Israel), the movement of both groups is tightly controlled, and both peoples are judged by the world based on internal…See More

From Palestine to Pakistan..Connecting the dots

My friends and family have gradually gotten used to the fact that the fight for Palestinian rights is my passion; they may not understand it totally, but they accept and even embrace it. A few have even occasionally asked me why I don’t just move to the Gaza Strip, where I have increasingly returned since 2009. (The answer, in part: I also want to be a part of my daughters’ lives.) But when I announced that I am joining a CodePink …See More

Obama and Aung San Suu Kyi

I recently had the opportunity to view a docudrama called The Lady — a “re-enactment” of the political re-awakening and rise to leadership of Aung San Suu Kyi, now a member of parliament for the opposition party in Burma.* I had heard her story before, of course, but it didn’t hit home until I saw this film just how worthy she was of the Nobel Peace Prize, which she was finally able to accept in person, 21 years after it was first awarded. And, immediately upon the heels of that thought was the…See More

Kony2012: Universal lessons for activists

Many people have already weighed in on the Kony2012 campaign launched by Invisible Children, but there are so many lessons it offers to other activists and cause-related NGOs that it is worth revisiting with a critical eye. After all, although we may not want to admit it (or we may think it is somehow of a higher order because of our good intent), advocacy of any kind is — by its very nature — designed to manipulate to some…See More

Pitfalls of cause marketing: TOMS shoes

This second in a three-part series on the pitfalls of cause marketing/”white savior” activism. In my first post I examined the “pink ribbon” industry that has grown up around breast cancer. In this installment, I examine an emerging business model for “doing well by doing good” by combining for-profit business with a not-for-profit charity. …See More

U.S. leaving legacy of English speakers, damaged souls

Posted on October 9, 2012 at 1:30am 0 Comments

Abdul was just 20 years old when he drove his father to the medical clinic one day for an exam. He dropped his father off, then left to run a few errands, saying nonchalantly that he would be back by the time the tests were done. But..he never showed up at the clinic. It was as if he had disappeared into thin air. His family agonized over what had happened to the young man, who – as the oldest son -- had worked as a laborer to support his parents and siblings in the wake of his father’s…

“I will never forget what the American soldiers did to my country, my tribe and my family. They violated our national sovereignty and our Islamic laws. They killed my son and my younger brother. They destroyed my home. If I see the soldiers who are responsible for this – if I have the opportunity -- I will kill them.” (translated from Pashto)

These are the chilling words of Kareem Khan, a Pakistani journalist from a tribe in Northern Waziristan, whose compound was destroyed by a…
