The noise coming out of the Presidents Trump-Putin Singapore summit, and the furor—both real and manufactured—about family separation, has pushed aside critical debate that will determine our country’s future. The pressures moving us toward the brink, however, have not stopped; and that must change. A recent Fox News show explored whether the “abolish ICE” movement […]
About Dr. Richard Benkin
My goals are to stop the Hindu Holocaust in Bangladesh and elsewhere; for the Baloch, Pashtun, and Sindhi to win their independence from Pakistan and be effective US allies in the war against radical Islam and to defeat Chinese expansion in South Asia.
In 1951, Hindus were a third of East Pakistan's population. When East Pakistan became Bangladesh in 1971, they were down to a fifth; thirty years later, less than a tenth; and estimates today place them at around one in 15. Two things happened during this time: a steady torrent of anti-Hindu atrocities proceeded with impunity; the media remained silent about it. (Bangladesh has the world's fourth largest Muslim population, which is why it became part of Pakistan when the British partitioned India.)
While the UN, EU, and others rail against a non-existent "occupation" in the Middle East, they ignore a very real and brutal one in South Asia: Pakistan's occupation of the Baloch, Sindhi, and Pashtun: three predominantly Muslim peoples whose leaders are openly pro-Israel.
In February, one of these Muslim groups--the Pashtun--attacked the Taliban, sacking their office, burning their vehicles, and stealing their arms; despite the presence of the Taliban's allies from Pakistani military and intelligence.
I have gathered extensive evidence first hand in South Asia, in major cities and remote villages; comforting victims and confronting victimizers, including complicit governments. Stopping the human rights atrocities is reason enough to take action.
There are also U.S. strategic and security interests, including countering Chinese expansion in the region and defeating the Taliban and other Islamist groups before they get their hands on a Pakistani nuke.
