“At the end of the day I would have to say that Pakistan is neither a foe nor a friend in this war on terror. I think it’s been helpful in some ways. There’s stuff lacking, stuff to be desired still to happen in terms of our relationship, in terms of going after the terrorists,” said Rehab.
“As I listen to Zuhdi Jasser speak here, he’s one of those far right individuals who’s trying to make this war against Al-Qaeda into a larger ideological war,” said Rehab.
“How about you stick to the subject, Ahmed?” said Jasser.
“That is the subject Zuhdi because that’s exactly what you’re trying to do here and i have to call you out on it. The fact is, you’ve been a sock puppet for the axis of Islamophobia in this country, and nobody who supports you likes Islam. Everybody who supports you hates Islam,” said Rehab.
“Look, the difference between us and those that we fight, in the form of Al-Qaeda and other militant radical groups is that we are a nation of values. We’re a nation of laws. In the fight to maintain the upper hand we can’t loose our souls. We can’t loose our principles and our values that make us worth fighting for. At the end of the day torture is torture. By any other name it’s still torture. And the problem with that is, it’s been proven time and time again that it does not provide accurate information. It has led us into a war in Iraq that was completely misguided; that wasted a lot of money and a lot of lives,” said Rehab.
