It seems as though the media can’t give us enough of Malala Yousufzai, whose fight against illiteracy and speeches on the importance of education take the limelight. I cannot fathom that Malala Yousufzai does not realize the level of her exploitation, and what baffles me are the number of fans she has gained in a very short period of time – It seems as though the blood of millions of Muslims has been overshadowed by the education propaganda as though nothing has happened in the recent past.
It doesn’t matter if U.S. tortures and rapes Muslims in Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay, it doesn’t matter if U.S. has ruthlessly droned Pakistan, it doesn’t matter if U.S. has cost Pakistan $102.5 billion in the war on terror, it doesn’t matter if U.S. murders Muslims for money and power, it doesn’t matter if U.S. is the biggest terrorist – the drama about girls education must continue. Also, there has been nothing by Malala Yousufzai on Gaza – the massacre, the onslaught, the broken truce, the bloodbath – nothing.
In Iraq alone, the U.S. has murdered 2 million innocent civilians, more than half a million of which were children. That is the death of over 500,000 innocent children, but apparently their murderer, the U.S., is interested in the education of Muslim girls. How many Malalas were killed in Iraq, how many Malalas murdered in Pakistan, how many Malalas butchered in Palestine, how many Malalas slaughtered in Afghanistan, how many in Somalia, Panama, Libya, Syria, Iran, and the list is endless.
