Analysis of relief and donations related to Pakistan floods 2010 – by Anas Abbas

Donations and contributions so far:

World Bank: popularly known as the Israeli sponsored conspiracy in Pakistan said it had set up an aid fund at Pakistan’s request with initial pledges of $80 million.

United States of America: Remember (According to Pew Research Center, Majority of Pakistanis View U.S. as Enemy.)

Total Funds contributed yet: $35 million

Ongoing initiatives:

  • Donations from private individuals and other government funded agencies
  • U.S. is now in process of taking an initiative to mobilize aid from other nations such as Kuwait. (A Muslim Country)

Japan (an ally of U.S.): $3 million

Australia: A$8 million aid package

Canada: $2 million

  • Separate aid programs from individual provinces

New Zealand: $2 million

Denmark: $1.7 million (Remember that the embassy of this country was attacked recently on the basis of Stupid Cartoons)

United Kingdom: £10 million by British Government. Scots are currently working on a proposed budget for the aid.

Ongoing initiatives:

  • Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) – an umbrella organisation of 13 UK humanitarian aid agencies has launched a radio and TV campaign to raise funds for victims
  • Other British agencies such as Oxfam are actively working on ground to assist the victims.
  • Donations from private British investors.
  • Andrew Strauss (English Test Cricketer & Christian by faith) has called on fans to contribute generously for the victims.

Remember few days ago after David Cameron’s comments, Pakistani media launched an E-Jihad against U.K and called to sever ties.

Mullahs were busy as usual doing the best job they have been known for i.e. burning effigies of UK leaders.

Germany: 2 million Euros

Switzerland: $193,000

France: 300,000 Euros

European Union: 30 million Euros (Separate from individual European countries)

Jew: Known to be the most despised group of people in the Muslim world and its fort Pakistan.

A British Jewish charity World Jewish Relief (WJR) has launched a campaign to provide relief to flood victims.  Majority of Jews resides in Israel.

All the above nations are seen as enemy in Pakistan and the animosity against them is a fundamental part of Pakistani school curriculum.

 

Sabir's Cartoon: Dailytimes

Now we analyze the aid from those nations that are known “Friends” in Pakistan.

China: Popularly known as the best Pakistani friend managed to contribute $1 million.

Saudi Arabia: an aid package is announced today but the size of the package is unknown.

Libya: None

UAE: an aid package is announced but the size of the package is unknown

Other Muslim Countries: None Yet. But they might come up with some packages later as the United States has now taken the responsibility to mobilize aid towards Pakistan so may be some Autocratic Muslim nation such as Egypt who heavily depends on U.S. to progress its dictatorship comes up with a figure.

So the major questions are:

Why a Muslim country immediately announces aid when it comes to helping victims of GAZA conflict?

Answer: Only because of Israel (Jew) being the part of the conflict. Who gives a shit about Palestinians?

So who are better?

Friends or Enemies?

You Decide………………………….

Also the most important point here to note is that majority of all this aid will never reach the victims due to Pakistan’s internal problems. Only three elements will benefit from this aid.

  1. ISI & Pak Fauj
  2. Political workers
  3. Jamait ud Dawaa (JuD)

  • Thank you Anas for sharing this information. Such information will unfortunately see the light of the day on mainstream media.

  • سارے پاکستانی اپنے عطیات انہیں دیں جن کو کوئی جماعتی اور مذہبی وابستگی نہ ہو ،ایدھی ،چھیپا ،عالمگیر ،ریڈ کراس اور دوسرے گروپ جو صرف اور صرف انسانی خدمات کر رہے ہیں انھیں ہی عطیات دینے چاہیے ہیں .
    جماعت اسلامی ،جماعت دعوه اور دوسرے مذہبی دہشتگرد گروپ یہ خدمات صرف اور صرف اپنے آپ کو مظبوط بنانے کے لیہ کرتے ہیں ،ان کے دل میں مخلوق کا کوئی درد نہیں ،اگر درد ہوتا تو یہ دھماکوں کے ردعمل میں اتنے خوش نہیں ہوتے .
    لوگوں کی مدد کریں پر مذہبی موقع پرستوں سے ہوشیار رہیں
    اس سیلاب کے بعد ان کے مدرسوں اور ہتیار میں اور اضافہ ہو جائے گا اور مفتی صاحب کو ایک اور پجیرو مل جائے گی اور منور حسن کی آمدنی میں اور اضافہ ہو جائے گا اور منصورہ کو رینووئیٹ بھی کیا جائے گا
