During his powerful endorsement of Barack Obama yesterday, Colin Powell chose to make one particular point about this whole "Obama is a Muslim" drivel that has sadly gone largely unstated during this election, despite being utterly plain and obvious. I have inserted the relevant video excerpt below, which I would urge you to watch.
And whilst were on the subject of the 'Really Right Answer' (or rather really obvious pertinent rhetorical question), according to GEO Prime Minister Gilani made this statement yesterday:
Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has claimed that that his ancestors had made the forefathers of the founder of Pakistan Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah Muslims, who were originally Rajputs.Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani revealed that his ancestors made the forefathers of the founder of Pakistan Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah Muslims.PM said that Quaid’s predecessor Lohana Rajput was non-believer centuries ago, and he (Lohana) embraced Islam on hands of Gilani’s forefather.
Gilani made this statement in Islamabad and added that the historians marked that event a Divine decree, as we, the successors of Hazrat Ghous-ul-Azam, were to come in this part of the world and our ancestors were to make Quaid’s forefathers Muslims and Quaid-e-Azam were to lay down the foundation of this Muslim state.
Riiighht. Some have questioned whether or not the Gilanis of old really did successfully preach to the Jeenabhais of old.
However, the ReallyRightAnswer/ReallyObviousYetPertinentRehtoricalQuestion here is either
a) "Why does he think anyone cares?"
b) "What the hell is his point?"
c) "Why in Gods name is he our Prime Minister?"
I mean, not to boast or anything, but I think it is important for everyone to recognize and accept that it was actually my own illustrious blood ancestors who founded the human race and moreover spawned Gilani's ancestors. I honestly mean this. This is an actual fact.
In reality therefore, it is I who am the scion of the ultimate family, the one that created Pakistan (and populated Asia Minor, and invented all technology and founded pretty much all the countries on the planet). So balls to Gilani, foolish usurper that he is.
