Bhutto Warns of Islamist Revolt in Pakistan

Exiled former Pakistani premier Benazir Bhutto warned of a looming Islamist revolution mounted from the country's madrassas, in a German magazine interview to be published on Monday.
Bhutto said she was planning her return to Pakistan this year to help stabilise the country in the face of the extremist threat.

"The Red Mosque was just a warm-up for what will happen if the religious schools are not disarmed," Bhutto said.

She added that Islamist extremist leaders were plotting an overthrow of President Pervez Musharraf's government and had converted madrassas in Pakistani cities into military headquarters with well-stocked arsenals.
Ask yourself one simple question, where does the funding for these madrassas come from? You only need to look to Saudi Arabia for the answer.

Lets examine once again our foreign policy. We have decided to arm Saudi Arabia, the same Saudi Arabia that has funded the Sunni insurgents within Iraq, financed the madrassas in Pakistan and was the country of origin of 15 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11. We have decided that Osama Bin Laden is no longer worth the effort of trying to catch. We have let the northwest regions of Pakistan be fertile training group for future generations of al-Qaeda and we invaded a country that had nothing to do with 9/11 and turned it into a quagmire that has become a recruitment tool for radical Islam. Do you still feel safer?
