"Angry at the the lack of security provided by police to Naeemi and his seminary.... students complained that security had not been increased despite the fact that the cleric had been receiving death threats.... Demonstrators carrying placards claiming the Taliban are US agents aiming to disrupt Pakistan - a claim that Naeemi had made"
Oh, so THAT is WHY he was KILLED!!!!!!
I mean EVEN the TALIBAN KNOW!!!!
"A Taliban commander.... attributed the blast to Pakistani intelligence agencies, saying the government was carrying out such acts to legitimize an operation in Waziristan. "They want to malign us. They want to use killings of innocent citizens against us."
Oh, like the FALSE-FLAG INSIDE JOB of 9/11 was USED against Americans?
So are you ready for the stream of war-promoting Zionist s***-shoveling.
"Pakistan seeks public backing against Taliban; Nation acts after deadly hotel bombing" by Asif Shahzad, Associated Press | June 11, 2009
ISLAMABAD - Pakistani officials moved swiftly yesterday to use the suicide bombing of a luxury hotel in their campaign to build public support for military offensives against the Taliban, saying the country is at war.
And CUI BONO, 'eh?
Past offensives against Islamist militants have resulted in backlashes as many Pakistanis concluded the only way to end the bloodshed and destruction was for the weak central government to strike a deal with the extremists - which it did as recently as this past spring in the Swat Valley, only to have an emboldened Taliban violate the agreement by seizing an adjacent district....
We know that whole story: there WAS ONE until the U.S. insisted Pakistan's puppet government abrogate it and attack.
Interviews with people on the streets of Pakistan's three largest cities - Peshawar, Karachi, and Lahore - found nothing but contempt for the Taliban....
And I should believe my AmeriKan jewspaper because...?
Hasan-Askari Rizvi, a political and defense analyst, said overall sentiment is more nuanced. Nevertheless, he said it appears that the Taliban's support is waning....
What do you mean "support?" After being fed daily doses of how unpopular and hated the "Taliban" is, WTF?
In Washington, the Obama administration's special envoy to the region said yesterday that he was observing "the slow emergence of a consensus behind the government's actions."
"Everywhere there was a dramatic change in attitudes from my previous trips because of the outrages of the Taliban and their supporters, and this was widely recognized," Richard Holbrooke, who visited Pakistan last week, said at the State Department.
Holbrooke said attacks like Tuesday's hotel bombing "are not going to work, provided the government gives the security necessary. And this is a daunting task for Pakistan, which is under so much economic pressure. . . . But the government is addressing it."
I'm tired of the horse s***, aren't you?
Investigators searched yesterday through debris at the Pearl hotel, where about two dozen UN workers were staying when the bomb went off. The exact death toll was not yet known.
While some media reports said up to 19 people were killed, a North West Frontier Province spokesman said officials had only been able to confirm 11 or 12 dead, including remains that are believed to be from the attackers....--more--"

"Teenage suicide bomber kills anti-Taliban cleric; Attack was 1 of 2 retaliatory strikes in Pakistan" by Alex Rodriguez, Los Angeles Times | June 13, 2009
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - A prominent Pakistani cleric who had publicly condemned the Taliban and its suicide bombing attacks was killed yesterday by a teenage suicide bomber who detonated explosives inside his office at an Islamic seminary in the eastern city of Lahore. The attack killed at least three other people.
Please see Occupation Iraq: AmeriKan Propaganda Push and related links within to see why I no longer believe this Muslim-hating Zionist crap.
Sarfraz Naeemi, a renowned religious scholar, had spoken openly of his support for the ongoing government military offensive to root out Taliban militants from the Swat Valley and surrounding regions. His death sparked immediate protests on the streets of Lahore by followers angry at the Islamic militant group and at the lack of security provided by police to Naeemi and his seminary.
The bombing was one of two devastating attacks yesterday in Pakistan, where a wave of retaliatory strikes continued in the wake of the government's bid to crush the Taliban movement. In the city of Nowshera, 60 miles west of Islamabad, the Pakistani capital, a suicide bomber drove an explosives-laden truck into a mosque at a military installation, killing at least six people and wounding at least 90. The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for both attacks.
So says my lyin' Zionist War Press.
Experts have said the Taliban's strategy is to cause enough mayhem to erode public support for the six-weeks-long offensive.
Then it is BACKFIRING, isn't it?
Unless my MSM newspaper is LYING AGAIN, of course!
The military has methodically cleared the Taliban out of much of the Swat Valley and the nearby regions of Buner and Lower Dir, and has begun to direct its forces toward pockets of militants in the Bannu region just outside the semiautonomous tribal areas of Waziristan, where pockets of Taliban and Al Qaeda militants have long been entrenched.
But as the Pakistani government has made substantial gains, it has struggled to cope with the outbreak of suicide revenge attacks that now are happening almost daily and are becoming increasingly sophisticated.
I'm STARTING to SMELL a STINK, aren't you?
Attacks on police and intelligence agency buildings in Lahore on May 27 and on an upscale hotel in the city of Peshawar on Tuesday were well-planned commando-style operations in which the killers breached heavily fortified entrances by firing at security guards before driving their vehicles inside the complexes and detonating their explosives....
That ABSOLUTELY REEKS of GOVERNMENT-TRAINED and DIRECTED TEAMS, folks! Just like in Mumbai, etc, etc, etc!
Authorities have beefed up security across the country, particularly in major cities. Nevertheless, militants have kept up the attacks and varied their tactics to thwart police....
Can you say INSIDE JOB, readers?
At Jamia Naeemia seminary where Naeemi was killed, students complained that security had not been increased despite the fact that the cleric had been receiving death threats. Naeemi had outspokenly denounced the Taliban and, on June 2, led hundreds of followers through the streets of Lahore in a rally in support of the military operation in the Swat Valley....
And WHO BENEFITS forom the DEATH, readers?
If you want to TRURN PEOPLE AGAINST the TALIBAN.... so WHO BENEFITS?
Witnesses said the bomber was a teenage boy who entered Naeemi's office after Friday prayers....
That verified and confirmed, or.... ?
Angry students took to the streets, shouting "Down with the Taliban" and burning tires. Naeemi's son, Waqar, pleaded with protesters to exercise restraint. "He was one of the most prominent scholars who stood up clearly against suicide bombings and against the Taliban," said Khalid Zaheer, a Pakistani professor and religious scholar. The explosion in Nowshera occurred at a mosque in a complex that houses military officials.
Oh, THAT CONFIRMS the FALSE-FLAG!!!!
A suicide bomber driving a pickup truck rammed the explosives-laden vehicle into the mosque just as people inside were beginning prayers, police said.
Ever notice Muslims didn't do such things for CENTURIES -- until WE GOT THERE?
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Supporters of a popular moderate cleric mourned his assassination in one of several suicide bombings for which the Taliban claimed responsibility yesterday to retaliate for a Pakistani military offensive against extremists.
So says the lying, agenda-pushing, war-promoting, Mulsim-hating Zionsit MSM of AmeriKa!
But instead of sowing fear and dissension, the attacks appear to be contributing to a growing wave of anti-Taliban sentiment, particularly the bombing at a seminary Friday that killed Sarfraz Naeemi. The cleric had called the militants murderers, condemned suicide attacks as un-Islamic, and backed the operations in the Swat Valley region.
And CUI BONO, 'eh?
If the TALIBAN were POPULAR with the people, then they wouldn't care what this guy said or bomb him, would they? And if they are losing support because of their operations, wopuldn't they stop?
This is such a familiar pattern with the Pakistan government and its people. First the Red Mosque and Bhutto; now this.
His death sparked a general strike that virtually shut down Karachi, the country's commercial center. About 200 activists of Jamat Ahle Sunnat, a moderate Muslim sect, staged a mock funeral procession for the Taliban, burning one in effigy as they chanted "Down with the Taliban; Taliban, the enemy of Islam; death for the killers of Sarfraz Naeemi."
In Lahore, where the bombing killed Naeemi and six other people, thousands gathered under tight security for his funeral, surging forward to try to touch his casket as pall bearers carried it to a crypt where it was sealed and covered with rose petals. The protesters demanded death for the Taliban and their leader, Baitullah Mehsud.
Yeah, the FUNERAL gets TIGHT SECURITY!!!
And ABOUT the CIA ASSET Mehsud: He ALREADY DEAD!
Pakistan Taleban chief Baitullah Mehsud, DIED SIX MONTHS AGO!
'Dead' Pakistan Taleban Chief Takes Credit for Lahore Terror Attack
Are WE CLEAR on the LIES and PROPAGANDA and WHO is shoveling them?
"We have no doubts that Taliban have killed our leader," said Mohammad Arif, 35, a former Naeemi student who now works as a prayer leader in a mosque in a middle-class neighborhood. "Our demand to the government is that they should kill each and every Taliban. We demand that their chief Baitullah Mehsud should be arrested and hanged in public. This is the only option to save this country."
I have MY DOUBTS, and hanging a CORPSE isn't gonna do much!
Also see: The American War on Wana
And wait until you SEE THIS:
The protest carried a distinct anti-American flavor, with some demonstrators carrying placards claiming the Taliban are US agents aiming to disrupt Pakistan - a claim that Naeemi had made....
The ANTI-TALIBANS are also ANTI-AMERICAN, huh?
Considering what this cleric was saying it NOW APPEARS OBVIOUS that "Al-CIA-Duh" attacked him, readers!!!!
Later, Parliament approved the budget for the new fiscal year, with a 16 percent increase in the military's allocation.
Oh, did that BOMBING of the HOTEL and KILLING of the CLERIC ever COME IN HANDY in such a TIMELY FASHION? Gee, what a COINCIDENCE, huh, readers?
"The war on terror has already cost us over $35 billion since 2001-02," said Hina Rabbani Khar, the junior finance minister. "We now face the prospect of incurring huge costs on account of counterinsurgency expenditures."
And HOW MUCH of that CHUNK did YOU PICK UP, American taxpayers?
All to pay for MASS-MURDER based on LIES!!!!
The government also allocated $620 million to help almost 2.5 million people who Khar said have been displaced as a result of the insurgency.
First of all, it is OVER THREE MILLION NOW!!!
Please, MSM, tell me, what is with the BACKTRACKING MINIMIZATION and LIES?
Helping the refugees is a critical issue to avoid anti-government anger....
Why would Pakistanis that have ever-increasing hate for the Taliban hate the government that is saving and protecting them.... unless we are having SMOKE BLOWN UP OUR ASSES yet again, 'murkn newspaper reader?!!!
The bombing that killed Naeemi happened within minutes of a similar attack at a mosque used by troops in the northwestern city of Nowshera that killed at least four and wounded 100. Those took the count of suicide bombings to five in eight days, including a huge blast at the luxury Pearl Continental Hotel in nearby Peshawar that killed nine people, including UN workers.
Taliban commander Saeed Hafiz claimed responsibility for the blasts at the seminary, hotel, and in Nowshera on behalf of Tehrik-i-Taliban, the group headed by Mehsud, local media reported....
Like I noted earlier, a CIA ASSET OUTFIT!!!!
So WHO KNOWS what the fuck happened other than an explosion and dead people, readers.
Btw, that is the LAST you will see of ANY REFERENCES to COVERT U.S. OPERATIONS using "Taliban" in the OBFUSCATING and OMITTING AmeriKan jewspress.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Pakistan ordered its army to go after the country's top Taliban commander, a feared militant whose remote stronghold could prove a difficult test for troops but whose demise would be a major blow to the insurgencies here and in Afghanistan.
Yeah, too bad he's ALREADY DEAD!
The announcement yesterday of the operation in South Waziristan, rumored for weeks, came hours after a suspected US missile strike killed five alleged militants there. The move is likely to please Washington, which considers the tribal region a particularly troublesome hide-out for Al Qaeda and Taliban fighters implicated in attacks on US troops in Afghanistan.
So HOW MUCH MUSLIM BLOOD will SATE YOUR THIRST, Obama?
Owais Ghani, the governor of North West Frontier Province, told reporters in Islamabad late yesterday that the government felt it had no choice but to resort to force against Pakistani Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud and his network.
Past army action in the region had usually faltered or ended in truces, strengthening the militants. "Baitullah Mehsud is the root cause of all evils," Ghani said, noting a slew of suicide bombings that have shaken Pakistan in recent days. "The government has decided that to secure the innocent citizens from terrorists, a meaningful, durable, and complete action is to be taken."
This stuff is LITERALLY TURNING my STOMACH, folks!
Ghani suggested the operation has already begun, though the military has insisted its recent attacks on militants in South Waziristan were retaliatory, not the launch of a new offensive. Two intelligence officials said the army and Taliban were fighting in the Spinkai Raghzai area of South Waziristan as the governor made the announcement....
South Waziristan, part of Pakistan's semiautonomous tribal belt, is a rumored hide-out of Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden.
Oh, ANOTHER DEAD GUY!
Better get digging, Pakistani government!
Yup, RUMORS is NEWS in AmeriKa's jewspapers!!!!
As the military has pursued a separate offensive against Taliban fighters in the northwest's Swat Valley, observers have noted that the Taliban will not be defeated in Pakistan unless they lose their tribal sanctuaries.
I think a blog link above pointed that out, didn't it?
The United States has frequently targeted South Waziristan with missile strikes. The suspected strike yesterday hit three vehicles and killed five suspected militants. Two Pakistani intelligence officials confirmed the attack on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
Neighboring North Waziristan, another militant stronghold and target for US missiles, may also fall under the new Pakistani offensive at some point.
May? I would be COUNTING ON IT!!!
Mehsud is believed to pose a serious internal threat to the Pakistani government, and has been blamed for the killing of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, though he has denied that accusation. The Taliban chief also has been linked to bombings on both sides of the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.
Yup, Bhutto, yup:
Please stop it the shit-shoveling, Zionist MSM.
In many ways, a full-scale battle in South Waziristan will be a harder fight than in Swat, where the army claims to have killed hundreds of militants over the past six weeks.
Translation: MORE DEAD PEOPLE and REFUGEES!!
One reason is that the tribal region's porous border with Afghanistan could make it easier for militants to escape to the other side. Because of the tribal belt's semiautonomous nature, the government has long had limited influence, allowing militants to become deeply entrenched.
A new offensive could also mean more displaced civilians in Pakistan, already struggling to deal with more than 2 million who fled their homes in Swat and surrounding districts.
Oh. Now it is DOWN to 2 million!! WTF, readers?
Of course, the sly MSM shitters are NOT LYING; they caveated and qualified the statement with "over."
Yeah, you are getting the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth from your s*** jewsmedia, Amurka!
Pakistan's decision comes as public opinion has shifted against the Taliban, who have been blamed or have claimed responsibility for a series of bloody attacks in recent weeks, including one that killed a prominent anti-Taliban cleric and another that devastated a luxury hotel in Peshawar.
I guess they feel if they just REPEAT SOMETHING LONG ENOUGH you will believe it!!
Yesterday, a bomb rocked a market in the northwestern town of Dera Ismail Khan, while officials said clashes between the Taliban and security forces killed at least 20 militants in a tribal area supposedly cleared of insurgents months ago.
Another FALSE-FLAG STINK!!!!
Government official Inayat Ullah said 11 to 13 pounds of explosives were planted in a fruit vendor's hand-pulled cart in the market. Police official Mohammad Iqbal put the death toll at nine, with 20 wounded.
El-STINKO (if that is what really happened)!!
At a hospital where some of the wounded were taken, cries punctured the air. "It was crowded there when something big exploded," said 30-year-old Ilyas Ahmad, whose legs were wounded. "It was a big noise. Everybody was crying. Bodies were lying there. People were lying around blood."
A Taliban commander, Qari Hussain Ahmad, attributed the blast to Pakistani intelligence agencies, saying the government was carrying out such acts to legitimize an operation in Waziristan. "They want to malign us. They want to use killings of innocent citizens against us," Hussain told the Associated Press by phone from an undisclosed location.
Undisclosed location? Can't the U.S. do a trace?
Oh, it figures THAT is the AFTERTHOUGHT in the LAST PARAGRAPH, Muslim-hating Zionist jewsmedia!
And just when you think things couldn't get any worse:

"Pakistan intensifies attack on Taliban; Military warned on killing civilians" by Rohan Sullivan, Associated Press | June 16, 2009
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan's military chief denounced terrorists as enemies of the country and Islam, but warned his officers yesterday to avoid killing civilians as they widen their operations against the Taliban.
Well, it is REAL EASY to DO THAT!! STOP ATTACKING THEM!!
The government is seeking to capitalize on general public support for its six-week-old offensive in the Swat Valley and open a new front in a nearby lawless tribal zone where Al Qaeda and the Taliban are entrenched.
Tired of the agenda-pushing repetitions and lies yet?
The military action is being welcomed by the United States as a strong stand against militants after years of failed offensives and striking deals rather than confronting Taliban hard-liners head-on.
This stuff is LITERALLY MAKING ME ILL!!!!
But the politically weak government is also keenly aware that public support could ebb if civilian casualties become heavy or if the task of resettling more than 2 million refugees displaced by fighting in the northwest is badly handled.
Need I even comment at this point? It would be nothing you haven't read before.
A top official in the northwest said Sunday that the government had given the order to send the military after Pakistani Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud.
How many SHOVELS they got?
The announcement was interpreted as effectively giving the go-ahead for a fresh military offensive in Waziristan, the semiautonomous tribal region on the border with Afghanistan that is rumored to be a hiding place of Osama bin Laden and where Mehsud makes his base.
Oh, HIM and his HIDING PLACE again!!!!!!
The military reportedly closed key roads leading into the area yesterday, but there was no immediate sign of fighting.
In a carefully stage-managed event yesterday, selected television outlets taped armed forces chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani dressed in a tight-fitting flight suit clambering into the copilot's seat of an F-16 fighter-bomber before taking off for a flight over the Swat Valley.
It is called PROPAGANDA, MSM!!! And as BUSH GOES so goes KAYANI, 'eh?
In an address to officers before the trip, the army general denounced Mehsud and the Taliban leader in Swat, Maulana Fazlullah, saying they had nothing to do with Islam. "Terrorists are the enemies of Pakistan and enemies of Islam; we have to eliminate them," Kayani was quoted as saying by Geo TV, one of three networks invited to cover the event. Journalists were not allowed to ask questions.
But he also stressed the importance of avoiding civilian casualties. "In the present circumstances . . . it is difficult to differentiate between friend and enemy," Kayani told the officers in comments broadcast by Geo. "The problem is that you have to separate black from white . . . to avoid collateral damage."
Hey, they are ALL INNOCENT ASSHOLE because 9/11 was/is a CIA/MOSSAD OPEARTION!!
Focus has increasingly shifted from Swat to Waziristan in recent days, though the military says it is still fighting pockets of resistance in the northwestern valley. In one skirmish yesterday, the military said troops battled militants fleeing on mules from Fazlullah's rear base of Piochar.
Oh, so after telling us therewas no reported fighting, turns out there was: if you can call SLAUGHTERING FLEEING REFUGEES on MULES a "FIGHT."
The military has struck suspected militant strongholds in South Waziristan and neighboring Bannu with shells and bombs in recent days, but insists the operations are a response to increased militant attacks on troops and not the beginning of a major offensive.
Oh, THAT was KEPT QUIET in the PREVIOUS ARTICLES -- unlike the "SUICIDERS!"
The United States has frequently targeted South Waziristan with missile strikes. The latest was on Sunday and killed five suspected militants, two Pakistani intelligence officials said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the news media.
What do you mean "suspected?"
Owais Ghani, governor of North West Frontier Province, said late Sunday that the government felt it had no choice but to use force against Mehsud and his network, calling him "the root cause of all evils. The government has decided that to secure the innocent citizens from terrorists, a meaningful, durable, and complete action is to be taken," he told a news conference.
That's because WE WERE COMING IN if they REFUSED!!!
