Swat flogging a Jewish plot

Via Mick

This video documenting the flogging of a 17 year old girl in a Taliban-controlled region in Pakistan incurred much repulsion and anger across the world.

Pakistani Daily times informs:

Federal Minister Senator Azam Khan Swati of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) said on Saturday that the flogging of the 17-year-old girl in Swat was a Jewish conspiracy aimed at destroying peace in Swat and distort the image of those Islamists who sport beards and wear turbans.

Speaking at a reception hosted by the JUI-F Karachi Chapter in his honour, Swati said that the JUI-F may part ways with the PPP-led coalition government if drone attacks continue to violate the sovereignty of Pakistan. “We shall not tolerate the violation of our country’s sovereignty through drone attacks,” he said, adding that under a deep-rooted conspiracy, the Pakistan Army was being defamed.

I found it mildly ironic that the honourable Minister was speaking about a Jewish conspiracy "at a reception hosted by the JUI-F Karachi Chapter". As I commented elsewhere, it sounds as if he was addressing the French chapter of B'nai Brith in Karachie...
