  1. Here is the family of Educators which was attacked by a Drone strike. It includes children younger than Malala. They did not get the coverage in Pakistan media nor foreign media and nor are they contenders for any international prize – they’re mistake? They should have told the world that it was the Taliban instead, and not the drones of the good guys AND everyone would have jumped on the bandwagon to cover their story…..

    Our humanity is under question when we support the dirty wars of the most powerful in this world by supporting their propaganda and we ignore the countless weak, voiceless and faceless victims. Countless children who have the thirst for education as much as Malala, are slaughtered but their murder and story goes unrecorded and unreported – while Malala’s story is doing the rounds over and over and the propagandists for the War of Terror will go on milking this story…

    And so the show continuous … more killings, more war and more murder and more justifications for aiding Afghanistan and Pakistan with bombs and not books (except for books to enlighten the Muslim savages).
