Truth about the Chinese ‘Investment’ that was about to take place


chinese president

The actual GRAND THEFT is supposed to begin soon.

The $34 Billion investment from China that they keep parroting about isn’t actually an investment, it’s a LOAN.

This LOAN carries a FEE/INTEREST RATE of 7% whereas the project loans Pakistan gets from ADB/WB etc. are usually at a rate of 2-4%

To avail this LOAN, the condition is that there will be NO BIDDING for the project and Government will award contracts directly to Chinese companies (or companies that will utilize Chinese equipment and contractors).

For this to happen, Government is amending Procurement rules since currently it’s not possible to award such contracts without BIDDING.

Procurement rules amendment will allow Government to SET THE PRICE ITSELF for a certain type of work and award direct contract to any company without any bidding involved.

Most of this Loan will be utilized for Coal based Power Projects for which Government has already filed a “Tariff Review Petition” in NEPRA headed by Khawaja Naeem – a close Relative of Khawaja Asif.
Despite the fact that this “Tariff review petition” was not maintainable since it was filed a year after review period expired, NEPRA has accepted the petition and on Government’s request and has approved New escalated Upfront Tariffs for Coal based Power Projects.
Government has requested (and NEPRA approved) to allow $1.7 Million Dollar per Mega Watt construction cost for such projects whereas India has recently built a better and more efficient (than approved by NEPRA) Coal based power plant at a cost of $ 0.55 Million Dollar per Mega Watt

So Now, with NO BIDDING involved, Government will award contracts with a construction Cost of $ 1.7 Million per Mega Watt and hence 2/3rd of it will go into pockets of all the people involved.

This also explains why “Hussain Nawaz” and “Salman Shahbaz” (who look after family business and have no apparent involvement in Politics) were not only part of state delegation but were also part of meetings that discussed and finalized these MOUs.

This does not end here; NEPRA has also revised the ‘Rate of Return’ on investment from 17% to 27% (an unprecedented step) for these projects.

And not surprisingly, first company to announce a Coal based Power project under this program is owned by Mian Mansha.

So Now, be ready for country to be burdened further by $34 Billion Loan and a higher Electricity tariff…

If everything goes as planned, at the end of the day “Some” will have their pockets heavier by 10-15 Billion Dollars or more….
On Transparency International website, letter written to Ministry of Water and Power, this is available. Who went on China visit and was part of meetings is widely reported in Media. Sources are NEPRA, Transparency International, and DAWN/THE NEWS. Also Nishat Energy is the company that announced to build Coal based plants with Chinese ‘Investment’. On NEPRA website, one can find Govt’s petition and NEPRA announcement document for Upfront Coal Tariff.

Note: Information posted as received about the much talked about Chinese investment that was about to take place.

The Islamic World Peace Forum (IWPF) on ISIS Terrorist Group


ISIS threaten international peace

The Islamic World Peace Forum (IWPF) take a Virtual Roundtable about Measures of ISIS Terrorist Group by scholars of Global Alliance , including Dr. Mrs. May El-Khansa, Dr. Felix Angel Herrero Duran, Seyed Zaid Zaman Hamid, Dr. Zuhair A H Almahmeed, Professor Chandra Muzaffar and Ilgar Allahverdiyev.
Respect for human status, rights and dignity is the common features of all religions and cultures. Hence, terrorists must not be allowed to undermine these values in the region and in the world. The anti-human and criminal acts of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Al- Sham (ISIS) terrorist group in Syria and Iraq are not only crimes against humanity and human dignity, but also pose serious threats to regional and global peace. It must be borne in mind that the power of this terrorist group in Syria and Iraq poses serious threat to regional peace and security in the short term and to international peace and security in the long term. Therefore, the Muslim countries as well as the elites of the world of Islam should join hand to promptly develop regional and global mechanisms and strategic measures to face this terrorist group. Such measures not only will thwart the savage and inhumane acts of terrorist groups such as the ISIS in Iraq and the region, but also would be a platform for promotion of cooperation among Islamic states to prevent and uproot all terrorist groups in the region and the world. As an international Non-Governmental Organization, the Islamic World Peace Forum (IWPF) has always endeavored to preserve human values, peace and justice in the region and the world. In the light of the recent developments in the region, Dr. Davoud Ameri, the Secretary General of the IWPF has underlined the need to review the global discourse of fight against terrorism. In a letter to the UN Secretary General, His Excellency Ban Ki-moon, he has mentioned that the terrorist acts of ISIS in Iraq pose serious threats to the regional peace and stability. In continuation of its efforts to highlight the threat of this terrorist group, the IWPF organized a virtual roundtable with the participation of outstanding elites of the world. The main objective of the roundtable was to provide a platform for the elites to shed light on the threats posed the ISIS terrorist group and find out effective mechanisms to confront it in the region and other terrorist groups in the world.
The main themes of the roundtable were: Measures of the ISIS terrorist group in the region; the threats posed by the ISIS against regional and international peace and security; and violation of human rights and dignity by the ISIS.

  • What is your idea about the recent measures taken by the terrorist group, Islamic State in Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS)?

The answer of the elites to this question in the virtual roundtable is as follows:

 

  1. Mrs. May El-Khansa (PhD in international Law, human rights activist in the Islamic world)
    The USA and Israel are plotting to introduce Islam as a radical and takfiri religion to allow Israel and US continue their crimes against Muslims and especially in Palestine and that’s what is happening now, they are killing Palestinians and nobody move. So, ISIS terrorist group has been formed to divert the world’s attention from the crimes being committed by the Zionists in Palestine.
    Dr. Felix Angel Herrero Duran (activist on terror charges against Spain’s Muslim community, peace activist)
    They are clearly contrary to Islam measures for human rights recognized by the United Nations and Human Intelligence and Reasoning.
    Seyed Zaid Zaman Hamid (analyst and founder of a think-tank on international and political events in Pakistan)
    ISIS is terrorist gangs of Khawarij, created by the Mossad/MI6 to destroy the Muslim countries from within, ignite sectarian wars and pave the way for the creation of greater Israel in the Middle East. Rasul Allah (sm) had foretold us about this group in ahadees mubaraka of the end time and all the signs of khawarij foretold in ahadees about this group are fulfilled here. Muslims should unite to crush this fitnah with full force.
    Dr. Zuhair A H Almahmeed (Secretary –General of the Islamic National Movement)
    ISIS is a Wahhabi terrorist Group just like Al-Nusra Front and AL-Qaeda and several Others that are creations of Arrogant Powers Intelligence agencies and their Tools in the Middle East , They are mere tools that are commissioned to divide and reshape the Arab world into Weak Mini states that represent Religious and or Ethnic Minorities that will in turn weaken Arab and Muslim States in favor of Justifying A Strong Jewish State in the Heart of the Arab and Muslim States for decades into the Future.
    Professor Chandra Muzaffar (Head of the International Movement for a Just Peace)
    ISIS’s alleged brutal and barbaric killing of those who do not subscribe to its narrow, bigoted view of Islam confirms that the group is a vile and vicious terrorist outfit.
    Ilgar Allahverdiyev (President of the International Religious Liberty Association, Editor in Chief of the Deyerler newspaper)
    ISIS is the terrorist group created by Western special intelligence services and coordinated by intelligence and diversionary structures of Zionist regime. ISIS is formed to separate the Islam ummah and to prevent the unity process of Muslim countries. ISIS’s provocation in Iraq is an example of their policy to split the unity. Killing innocent people, spreading the death and destruction ISIS performs the wishes of own curators.
  • What are the threats posed by this terrorist group to international peace and world security?

The answer of the elites to this question in the virtual roundtable is as follows:
Dr. Mrs. May El-Khansa: Threats and danger from the terrorist group (Takfiri militants) are threatening peace in the entire region and the world. They form the most dangerous threat to the whole Middle East. And it’s known that the United States and some Gulf countries are backing these terrorist organizations, they want to dismember Iraq states.
Dr. Felix Angel Herrero Duran: Is globalization of terrorism, these armed terrorists ideological financially by Arab dictatorships, and militarily by the long arm of Zionism, will not relent in its efforts to create what they define as caliphate, although not more than a crude dictatorship crazy tie, and this terrorism exported to any corner of the planet where they are.

Seyed Zaid Zaman Hamid: This is an Israeli article — one of the most clear evidence that Iraqi army is being systematically destroyed by the Americans to clear the way for the ISIS. There is NO US support to defeat ISIS, in fact, US is now destroying the Iraqi army… ISIS will be allowed to expand to a point, and then a Shia state will be allowed to stay in south. The final plan will then be complete for a massive sectarian war but for now, ISIS is being helped to gain ground.
Dr. Zuhair A H Almahmeed: Those Groups will turn eventually on their Masters when they realise the End Game, as they are not commissioned to fight proxy wars and go back to their countries, but they are sent to destroy and be destroyed.
Professor Chandra Muzaffar: ISIS is an affront to international law and global peace. If a group like ISIS is not confronted and defeated by the peace-loving people of the world, the seizure of power through terrorism may become a norm.
Ilgar Allahverdiyev: ISIS is the destructive group established to terror of people. Terrorism is the main line of ISIS and only program of their existence. So, taking into account this issue we can say that there will be no peace and public tranquility in the region until such terrorist groups exist. Countries of this region should understand the threat spreading by ISIS and begin the unity process against this real danger. It is necessary to achieve the success on breaking the financial and any support are provided by some countries. And the very important point is the governments that flirting with terrorists were needed to refuse from such policy.

  • What is your opinion about violation of human rights and human dignity by this group?

The answer of the elites to this question in the virtual roundtable is as follows:
Dr. Mrs. May El-Khansa: ISIS has committed numerous violations against women, men and children including murder and kidnappings. They also imposed oppressive rulings which violate the rights of people and degrade their dignity and liberty. They are as will many cases of rape of women by ISIS elements in both Iraq and Syria, they are coercing women to satisfy the sexual desires of ISIS gunmen under the so-called ‘sex jihad’, and forcing minor girls into marrying them.
Dr. Felix Angel Herrero Duran: Terrorism are applying it almost exclusive against Muslims, which doubly contradicts the teachings of the Quran, the atrocities carried out against prisoners or against “non-combatant” as civilian staff are an attack on Islam, human dignity and Geneva Convention on the treatment of prisoners.
Seyed Zaid Zaman Hamid: Hundreds of Israeli troops have also joined ISIS ranks rampaging through the Muslim lands and looting and raping Muslim women. For the first time, Israeli army is aggressively operating in Iraqi and Syrian cities, within Muslim homes… Innalillahe inna ilehe rajeoon!!
Rasul Allah (sm) had clearly warned us against ISIS and now Muslims should be very careful of this fitnah, which is hijacking our faith and deen. The Kuffar know that real Khilafat ala minhaj UN NUbuwwat is close. Now this is the Mossad/CIA/Khawarij attempt to hijack it.
Dr. Zuhair A H Almahmeed: Those groups of criminals have no respect what so ever of human rights and human dignity and they have no limit to the type of crimes they commit, they are committed to terrorist ethnic and religious minorities leading to ethnic cleansing towards forming those Mini States that will in turn formulate the New Middle East that Arrogant Powers promoted.
Professor Chandra Muzaffar: When a group has no respect for human life, violation of human rights and human dignity becomes its way of life. In areas that the ISIS controls in Iraq and Syria beheadings are common. This is a total distortion of Islamic teachings.
Ilgar Allahverdiyev: ISIS terrorists encroach on people main right – the right to live. They perform multiple executions, punitive actions. The human life and dignity, such important values are absolutely far away from them. It is necessary to carry out the extensive PR among the people in order to show them the truth about ISIS. It is also important to stop the misinformation about this terrorist group and show to the world community ISIS’s true colors.

The conclusions of the participants regarding the threats posed by the ISIS to regional and international peace and security are summed up as follows:
The participants unanimously concluded that the measures of the terrorist ISIS group in Iraq and the region pose serious threats to regional and international peace and security and too aggressive, inhumane acts of the ISIS are stark violation of human rights and dignity. Muslim countries and the international community are asked to confront this terrorist group to prevent further threats to regional and international order and peace.

Real jihad is in Palestine


Smoke billows from a building in Gaza following an Israeli air assault.

Smoke billows from a building in Gaza following an Israeli air assault.

July 21

By Kevin Barrett

As of Sunday, Israel was killing Palestinians at a rate of more than 100 per day. Most of the victims are civilians, including large numbers of children, who are being intentionally targeted.

As US Secretary of State John Kerry sarcastically blurted out, it is “one hell of a pinprick operation” when Israel calls in airstrikes to murder little boys playing soccer on the beach.

The current massacre is just the latest episode in a six-decade-long slow-motion genocide. Israel is trying to remove the vast majority of Palestinians from Palestine, by killing some of them and making life impossible for the others. As international law professor Francis Boyle argued at the Kuala Lumpur Tribunal in Malaysia almost one year ago: “The Palestinians have been the victims of genocide as defined by the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.”

In August 2013, the tribunal found Israel guilty of genocide. Perhaps that is why Malaysian planes keep falling out of the sky.

Who is going to stop the Palestinian genocide? The West is owned by Zionist criminal oligarchs. The United Nations is helpless. Christians have been guilt-tripped into believing that they owe the Zionists a genocide – as long as it is perpetrated against somebody else. China is too far away and concerned with its sphere of influence. India is occupied by the Zionists who have taken over RAW, the Indian intelligence agency. Russia has its own problems with powerful Zionist oligarchs and their Nazi stooges and thugs. Latin America is too busy trying to free itself from Uncle Sam…and yes, there are Zionist oligarchs there too.

So the only thing standing between Palestine and genocide is the world’s nearly two billion Muslims.

Palestine has been Islamic holy land, administered and protected by Muslims, since 636 CE – which corresponds to the 15th year of the Islamic calendar. Essentially, Palestine has been ruled by Muslims, justly and equitably for the most part, for as long as Islam has existed. It is the duty of every Muslim to protect Palestine, including the Christian and Islamic holy sites.

So where are those two billion Muslims – who outnumber the genocidal settlers in Occupied Palestine 400-to-1 ?

They are being divided, distracted and debilitated by Zionist propaganda…and by the treason of their own rulers.

The Persian Gulf states, led by Saudi Arabia, could stop the genocide. Saudi Arabia has a pivotal role in global oil production. The biggest player in OPEC, Saudi Arabia could easily launch another oil embargo like the one in 1973…only this time for real. Unfortunately, the Kingdom’s current rulers apparently value their sybaritic lifestyles above the lives of Palestinian children and the sanctity of Islamic holy sites. Many of them are in bed with the Zionists, literally and figuratively.

The governments of other Muslim countries aren’t much better. Of all the Muslim-majority nations, only Iran (and to a lesser extent Syria and Malaysia) is taking serious risks to help the Palestinians defend themselves, and to broadcast the truth about Palestine to the world.

So why are so many self-styled “jihadis” attacking Iran – and the friends of Iran in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq?! In essence these “jihadis” are serving in the Israeli army. Mind-controlled CIA-Mossad stooge Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – or whatever he is calling himself this week – is the de facto head of the Israeli military’s Foreign Legion.

Likewise, in Pakistan, the Zionist-controlled Indian intelligence agency RAW has created a fake insurgency of “Pakistani Taliban.” Some deluded Pakistani Taliban foot-soldiers, like al-Baghdadi’s followers, imagine themselves jihadis fighting to purify Islam. They have a funny way of purifying Islam: killing their fellow Muslims with weapons provided by Zionists and CIA agents like Raymond Davis, who was captured in Pakistan staging “Pakistani Taliban” terrorism.

Pakistani defense analyst and popular TV host Zaid Hamid explains that these fake jihadis are tools of the West’s fourth generation warfare against Islam and Muslims. Fourth generation warfare – the brainchild of William S. Lind and other American and Zionist strategists – uses synthetic insurgencies and false flag terrorism to achieve military and political objectives. The doyens of fourth generation warfare have steered the concept of “jihad” away from its traditional Islamic just-war-doctrine foundations, toward Takfiri terrorism and other counterproductive (to the Muslims) tactics.

So when “Caliph” al-Baghdadi says he doesn’t really care about Palestine, he just wants to kill Shi’a Muslims, recalcitrant traditional Muslims, and Christians, he is waging a very strange kind of “jihad”…a very ZIONIST kind of “jihad.”

The Qur’an says that God hates aggressors; it tells us that when an enemy “drives you out of your homes” it is time to wage defensive jihad. (Note that the word jihad includes the primary meaning of “striving, effort” to be a better person, alongside the secondary meaning of striving to be a better person by risking your life standing up for justice and defending your community.)

The Israelis are systematically murdering Palestinians and driving them out of their homes and have been doing so for more than half a century. Palestine is Islamic holy land. There has never been a more clear-cut case of legitimate defensive jihad.

I am not an Islamic scholar. I have an Islamic Studies related Ph.D. from a secular American university. I am not highly qualified to interpret scripture. But this issue is a no-brainer. Anyone who had read the Qur’an with a scintilla of understanding, anyone with the faintest acquaintance with just war theory, anyone who even remotely comprehends that our God-given human nature loathes aggression and authorizes self-defense, knows that not just every Muslim, but every human being with a conscience is required to help the Palestinians defend themselves against genocidal Zionist aggression.

What’s more, this one is winnable. A wedge can be driven between the psychotic über-Zionists and the slightly more rational realists who hold power in the West. If we work hard enough, and fight hard enough, we can force the West to acquiesce in the liberation of Palestine. Five million cannot hold out against two billion forever. Like apartheid South Africa in the 1980s, Zionist Israel today is approaching its expiration date.

There are fake jihads happening all over the world…Takfiri jihads, fourth generation warfare jihads, imperialist-sponsored divide-and-conquer jihads. These misguided spasms of pointless violence are libels on the noble word “jihad” – a word the Zionist-dominated Western media has dragged through the mud.

To hell with all the fake jihads. The real jihad is in Palestine.

Onward to victory.
