Mary Doreen, a Western nurse, who lived in Saud Arabia for many years, wrote a book on her experiences while working at King Faisal Specialized Hospital and Research Center. Describing the minds of Saudi men, she wrote: “Some Saudis believe that they must have sex five times a day, either before or after prayer. When a woman is menstruating, she is considered ‘unclean’, and it is forbidden for a man to have sexual relations with her. If all his wives are menstruating at the same time, [which frequently happens when several women live together], it is a man’s duty to seek sexual gratification outside of the home. A proud Saudi man wouldn’t defile a Saudi woman, and if a slave or servant or foreign national prostitute is unavailable, he thinks nothing of traveling to Egypt, UAE or Thailand. Sexually transmitted disease is rampant within the country.”

Turkish Navy Ship TCG BUYUKADA arrived at Karachi to participate in the exercise, which includes an elaborate Harbour and Sea phase, said a statement on Tuesday.
The visiting ship was received by Turkish Naval Attache in Pakistan and senior officials of Pakistan Navy.
During Tuesday’s visit, Director General Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) Lieutenant General Rizwan Akhtar, DG MilitaryOperations( DG MO) Major General Aamir Riaz Rana and other senior officials from the ISI’s Counterterrorism and Counter-intelligence Directorates and the Directorate General of Military Operations reportedly accompanied the COAS. Military Spokesman and DG Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asim Saleem Bajwa said the COAS met Afghan President Ashraf Ghani. “Both appreciated improving relations, pledged to continue operations on respective sides, won’t allow use of soil versus each other,” he said in a tweet.

“I’ve reviewed my share of documents in my career. It should not take that long to review that document and decide what needs to be redacted.”

The government’s representatives in the case — Special Assistant US Attorney Laura Jennings and Defense Department counsel Mark Herrington — initially said confidentiality agreements required a “line by line” review of the Defense Department’s report. They later shifted, arguing that its release is optional and not mandatory, as “diplomatic relations dictate that DoD seeks Israel’s review.”
Smith and the US agreed that the government would redact sections of the report on NATO countries, though the passages on Israel remain intact.
In order to reciprocate Pakistan’s laudable efforts in war on terror, while the US declared Mullah Fazlullah as the global terrorist, ANA launched an operation in Kunar against Fazlullah’s men. Five culprits having linkage with Peshawar incident have been arrested on the pointing of ISI. ANA managed to destroy some hideouts and inflicted casualties on TTP men but in the process lost over fifty soldiers. CIA operated drones are at times targeting militant hideouts in inaccessible areas in Shawal Range and along Pak-Afghan border. Both the US and China look positively and receptively towards the fast growing relationship between Pakistan and Afghanistan and see it as a healthy development. While China has agreed to take active part in bringing peace in Afghanistan, the US has finally acknowledged the importance of Pakistan and is cooperating. Pak-US relations that were downhill are once again moving uphill. At the recently concluded Beijing Conference Ashraf Ghani defined five circles manifesting Afghanistan’s future foreign policy. He placed Pakistan in Ist circle (immediate six neighbors) and 2nd circle (Islamic World) and India in 4th circle (Asia). This is indeed a huge shift in thinking of Afghan leadership. What it implies is that Afghan top leadership has consented to prefer Pakistan over India. For a change, the US has readily reconciled with changed priorities of new regime without any ifs and buts. Kabul dropped another bombshell on India by declining her military aid and training assistance, and to rub salt on her wounds asked Pakistan to train Afghan officers. For the first time 16 Afghan cadets are receiving training in PMA Kakul. To add to India’s woes, Ghani made it clear that he will not allow Afghan soil for proxy war against any neighbor. He further distressed India by inviting Pakistan to host the next ‘Heart of Asia’ Conference, which earlier on was scheduled to be hosted by India. Pakistan’s reservations on use of its trade route by India from Wagah to Afghanistan have been accepted by Afghanistan, USA and China.
This smear just won’t go away. Over the last year-and-a-half we’ve received more than 100 queries asking us whether it was true that two “devout Muslims” were appointed to serve at the Department of Homeland Security. The short answer is yes, though we can’t say how “devout” either man might be. The message makes a false claim, however, when it says the appointments amount to “letting the fox guard the henhouse,” as though all Muslims were terrorists or sympathizers. That is not true.
By the office note, Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry had instructed the Office of the Court to immediately initiate contempt proceedings “against all concerned” who allegedly brought out some critical information about his son, Dr. Arsalan, in connection with his ‘moral and financial dispute’ with property tycoon Malik Riaz Hussain.
The former chief justice had instructed that the new contempt case shall be fixed before the same bench of two Judges which was hearing the dispute after his formal recusal from the bench. In apparent breach of his declared dissociation from the case, the taller than life Chief Justice still tried to rescue his son by scaring the likely witnesses of the financial transactions between the parties in England. Dr. Arsalan had denied the transactions which included the bills for his vacations and shopping in England.
The certification of the contentious document, originally an Office Note of the Admn Branch, was sought in Nov. 2012 through a constitution petition that sought enforcement of the Fundamental Right of “Access to information”.
