I have already confessed my love for Friedman’s op-ed in NY Times. His recent article on the Mumbai attacks “Calling all Pakistanis” is one of the very few logical viewpoints about the India-Pakistan situation, from the Western media. (For most part, the Western media has very little clue about the Geopolitics of that part of the world and tries to treat it as if it’s curable using Advils and Tylenols. Exhibit A: Wolf “the” Blitzer).
Quoting Friedman:
“When Pakistanis and other Muslims are willing to take to the streets, even suffer death, to protest an insulting cartoon published in Denmark, is it fair to ask: Who in the Muslim world, who in Pakistan, is ready to take to the streets to protest the mass murders of real people, not cartoon characters, right next door in Mumbai?”
