    Islamabad, Jan 10: Pakistan has suspended all intelligence and defence cooperation with the United States (US), said its defence minister Engineer Khurram Dastgir Khan on Tuesday, reported The News International.

    Palestinian-Arabs in the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) are not a very happy bunch these days, and not just because of Donald Trumps recognition of Jerusalem as Israels capital. Contrary to western media hype of a potential explosion of violence due to U.S. President Trumps announcement, protests in the Palestinian territories were relatively subdued. Only a few thousand Palestinians participated in demonstrations at their peak. All considered, it was hardly the new Intifada that the terrorist group Hamas has called for. Palestinians, it seems, have much greater concerns to attend to. Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) less than inspiring leadership, whose...

    Doubling down on support for terrorism finally generates consequences. Originally published by the Jerusalem Post. The PLO and the Palestinian cause more generally are sinking into irrelevance and rather than reform their policies to rebuild their position, they have adopted a scorched earth policy that only intensifies their race to the bottom. On the face of things, the situation isnt bad. Last month the PLO got 128 nations to vote in favor of their anti-American resolution rejecting US President Donald Trumps recognition of Jerusalem as Israels capital. One of the states that voted with them was India. . Israel was...

    Pakistans prime minister, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, has declared himself mystified by US threats to cut off funding, saying that US financial assistance was very, very insignificant and that Pakistan was on the forefront of the war on terror. In an interview with the Guardian, Abbasi said that reports that the US was considering cuts of up to $2bn in security assistance were bewildering because the total aid Pakistan civilian and military actually received was a tiny fraction of that amount. I am not sure what US aid has been talked here, Abbasi said in his office in Islamabad....

    At a revolutionary school in Pakistan, Durkhanay Banuri dreams of becoming military chief, once a mission impossible for girls in a patriarchal country where the powerful army has a severe problem with gender equity. Thirteen-year-old Durkhanay, a student at Pakistan's first ever Girls' Cadet College, established earlier this year in the deeply conservative northwest, brims with enthusiasm and confidence as she sketches out her life plan. "I want to be the army chief," she tells AFP. "Why not? When a woman can be prime minister, foreign minister and governor of the State Bank, she can also be chief of the...

    President Trump is drawing attention to the mysterious federal court case against Imran Awan, the former IT aide to a number of congressional Democrats, including former Democratic National Committee chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Whatever happened to this Pakistani guy who worked with the DNC? the president asked in an interview published Thursday by the New York Times. A grand jury in August returned an indictment in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia charging Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, with a total of four counts, which included federal bank fraud and conspiracy. Awan has pleaded not guilty...
