Event description

 

DESCRIPTION

Pakistan, which prides herself on being a fortress of Islam, is one of the most dangerous places on earth. She was no doubt born as a bastard child of the British Raj and groomed as a prostitute on the world stage by Uncle Sam. Ill at ease with herself, she is a source of instablibilty in trouble and violence.

On the one hand the most powerful political party in the country, the Pakistan army, has in pursuit of the grandiose goal of strategic depth harmed an immediate neighbor Afghanistan while on the other hand their jihadist Ghazwa-i-Hind policies have led to wars with India.

The two speakers, who are book authors-- Professor Thomas H. Johnson, author of the Taliban Narratives (OUP), and Tarek Fatah, author of 'Tragic Illusion of an Islamic State' (Wiley). 'The Jew is Not My Enemy' (McClelland)--will also be available for book signing.

The American Friends of Balochistan is happy to have Professor Johnson in its fold.

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
