Threat From Pakistan Increases, Fear Of Jihad Escalates

September 29, 2011 by  

Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar addressed the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday to detail the current situation within the country.The strained relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan has not improved in recent weeks, as influential religious leaders in the Asian nation have threatened a jihad if Americans attack their country, Fox News reported.

Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar addressed the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday to detail the current situation within the country. While she advocated cooperation, security analysts from the U.S. noted that the religious leaders wanted the nation to break ties with America.

“This must not be discounted,” an analyst told Fox News. “This is 50 very influential Imams and religious leaders who want a holy war against the U.S. …and they call for scholars, religious leaders to start urging the military rank-and-file to participate or prepare for jihad or holy war against the U.S. Use of Trojan horses or insiders like we have seen with the CIA will likely increase. ”

Reuters reported that part of the reason that the relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan has become strained is mutual suspicion.

The news source noted that the Pakistanis have selectively cooperated with America, as they take billions of dollars in aid to fight terrorism, despite producing limited results.
