No, Faisal Gill Is Not An Iraqi

By Greg L | 16 January 2007 | 51st HOD District | 3 Comments

Tonight GoodbyeJim has an amusing post which shows what appears to be an Iraqi demonstration and claims it’s an event happening in Prince William County. Unless Muqtada Al-Sadr has suddenly developed a following in the 51st District, I doubt the attribution is correct or that Grover Norquist has a militia. It’s funny, but the attempt at humor clouds the serious nature of the questions that have been raised of late. In actuality, as the picture to the left shows, Faisal Gill’s native countrymen give us plenty to discuss without clouding the issue with references to the Mahdi Army, which aren’t informative or accurate in this case.

It’s probably better to take a look at a few photos from Pakistan of we’re going to understand Faisal Gill, who was born in Karachi in 1972.

Here’s something from those infamous protests regarding cartoons that were published in Denmark that prompted muslims from around the world, and Pakistan in particular to start burning Kentucky Fried Chicken outlets, killing each other, and generally doing all those things you’d expect from people who didn’t approve of a cartoon published in an obscure foreign newspaper thousands of miles from where folks decided to protest. It must have really bothered them that Denmark wasn’t enforcing Sharia law, but at least there weren’t those pictures of folks holding signs saying “behead all who insult islam” as we saw from other areas where press censorship and gross violations of civil rights are not the norm.

Here we see a favorite Pakistani pastime called “set random things on fire”, such as flags, western businesses, automobiles and such. Apparently it helps folks deal with the frustration they must feel in participating in a culture that shed it’s scientific and cultural leadership a thousand years ago and which requires petroleum profits in order to prevent it’s collapse into irrelevancy. Remember that the concept of non-violence was put into practice in the other part of what was the British colony of India, and never seemed to gain much interest in Pakistan. Instead, one of their countrymen decided to assassinate Ghandi instead of listening to him.

If we’re going to reference cultures, we should at least make sure we’re referencing the correct one. Faisal Gill isn’t an Iraqi, many of which are fighting and dying in a battle against radical islamists alongside American soldiers. He’s a Pakistani, and his native countrymen are reportedly sheltering Osama Bin-Laden and running madrassas which supply radical islamists with many of it’s combatants. I don’t want to see the people of Iraq insulted, when so many of them are working so hard to rebuild their country and facing great personal risk in doing so.

    […] Some examples of this effort include BVBL’s Faisal Gill post and GoodbyeJim’s posts (post and post) which I guess are supposed to demonstrate Gill’s radical nature. These posts are in addition to all their previous posts (See here for a review.). […]

    The state of Pakistan in 1972 certainly provides prospective for us to examine the education of Faisal Gill. I think the facts are well documented and well researched. His father left a position in the banks of Pakistan in 1980; brought his wife and two sons to America; drove taxi cabs to support and educate his two sons; died on American soil in 2003. One son, a former Army officer, now serves with the FBI; the other, Faisal Gill, a former Bush Administration appointee, presently serves as a Lieutenant Commander in the Naval Reserves. This story is like that of so many immigrants, and it is a great American story.

    I believe that the state of Pakistan in 1972 was insightful, and I’m glad that you presented it. I just hope that I am not judged by the state of my homeland at the time of my birth. In my native land, some people were lynched because of the color of their skin…nothing more. I personally know of a man who was almost lynched while traveling in my native land. His only crime was that he was trying to get milk for his infant son. The only thing that saved him was that he was wearing the same uniform as one of his would-be assailants. I know and believe this story because I have heard this story repeatedly; I was the baby who needed the milk. It would be a mistake to judge me by the state of my homeland when I was born; while I stand for many of the values of that era, I do not stand for my country’s 1959 racial values. I hope you don’t expect me to hate or denounce my homeland either; my homeland is America and the high honor and privilege of my life was to serve as a U.S. Marine for 20 years.

    I think my point is clear: it is a mistake to judge Faisal Gill by a news clipping from Pakistan at the time of his birth. That news clipping does not reflect Gill’s attitudes any more than a news clipping of the savage racist murder and dragging death of James Byrd reflects the attitudes of any person born in Texas.
