Pakistani Cabinet Minister Offers Al-Qaeda $100,000 to Kill Mohammed Filmmaker

It’s times like these, I’m glad to know that Pakistan is our ally. Can you imagine if Pakistan was our enemy?

A Pakistani cabinet minister on Saturday offered a $100,000 reward for the death of the person behind the anti-Islam video made in the United States that has roiled Muslims around the world, even suggesting that Taliban and Al Qaeda militants could carry out the killing.

Ghulam Ahmad Bilour, the federal railways minister, said at a news conference in the northwestern city of Peshawar that he would personally finance a bounty aimed at the maker of a crude, low-budget video that denigrates the Prophet Muhammad.

Mr. Bilour acknowledged that incitement to murder was illegal, but said he was “ready to be hanged in the name of the Prophet Muhammad.” And he invited the Taliban and Al Qaeda to be “partners in this noble deed,” according to news reports.

And if Bilour can’t cover it, I’m sure that the Ford Foundation will take care of it.

The good news is that Pakistan has some of the worst railways in the world because the railways minister is busy putting out Mohammed murder bounties so they won’t be able to get here.

 During his time as Railway minister, The Pakistan Railways seems to be speeding on a downward track. He has often been criticized for his gross incompetence, coupled with extreme arrogance as a Railway Minister. He was once quoted as saying, “Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia do not have Railways, why Pakistan should have it?”

Sure, let’s go back to camels. If camels were good enough for Mohammed, they’re good enough for Pakistan.

On Jan 18, 2012, while giving an interview to GEO NEWS, he said that the Railways did not have any money for fuel and had only two days worth of diesel… adding that lack of funds and engines were the reasons behind the downward spiral of Pakistan Railways.

I imagine the lack of engines would have been a major issue.

He said the biggest problem facing the railways was the lack of engines, and without those no revenue could be generated

And the funds will just be used to kill people anyway, not to buy engines.

Further on an interview to a private New Channel, he said, he could not pull the trains himself, locomotives were needed for it.

It’s discoveries like these that have made Pakistan into an engine of global technological progress. Mussolini at least got the trains to run on time. All Islamists are good for is killing people.

Our good friend Bilour is a major leader in the Awami National Party, which stands for, “Islamic socialism, Public sector government, and economic egalitarianism.”

The Awami National Party uses a red flag and was Soviet backed, since the fall of the USSR it has drifted into the Islamist camp.

    Hmmm…. why hasn't this guy been charged with conspiracy to commit murder under US law? The person who this clown is attempting to contract for death, IS a naturalized citizen. So, are you saying, that if the perp is not in the U.S., it's NOT a crime to contract the death of an American?

    I don't think so…

    At a minimum, why not take this to ICC? Why doesn’t the AG of California file a charge?

    I would OF COURSE rather we place a Warrant for his arrest and then talk to the Pakis about extradition, how about that? The last time we let some scumbag flap his gums about going to war with the US and ignored him because we assumed he was an imbecile howling at windmills, we paid a very heavy price, the bill of which came due on a now familiar date, 9/11.

    So, what you’re telling by your inaction is that we haven’t learned a GD thing!

    WE ARE BEING “DEFENDED” BY WEENIES and IDIOTS!
