Pervez Hoodbhoy Blames Arab “Attitude” for Israel’s Murder of Palestinians

Old Pervez is at it again!

Why are Arabs so powerless? What is Israel’s “secret weapon”?

Pervez’s answer:

“A system of organised thought based upon a rational and secular approach to life, a modern system of justice, and a new set of social relations.”

First of all, does Pervez not realize that Israel is not secular but is actually a Jewish country whose laws are based in Judaism and fall under the authority of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel?

Pervez must have missed that detail.

What is the source of Muslim “powerlessness” then? Pervez says:

“No university here has a bookshop, a centre for students that hums with open debate and discussion, or a theatre where classic movies are screened.”

Oh no! No theatre for classic movies?! No wonder Palestinians are getting bombed and Pakistan lags on the world arena: No classical movie theatres!

In the article, Hoodbhoy wants to go on his usual rant, that the main problem is “lack of education.” But he realizes he can’t make that argument because there are many universities and research institutes all over the Muslim world, especially the Arab world, churning out science PhDs.

Plus, the “lack of education” argument doesn’t work when the entire world is connected to the internet and even the most remote village can now take open-access courses at MIT and Harvard.

So if educational opportunity is not the problem, what is?

Pervez has a brilliant answer:

“But the two groups have different attitudes towards success and different role models. The Ashkenazi child wants to be Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, John von Neumann, George Wald, Paul Samuelson, Gertrude Elion, Ralph Lauren, George Soros […] Compare this with the Arab boy who wants to be Salahuddin Ayubi and the Pakistani lad who dreams of becoming Ertugrul Ghazi.”

Ah! So that’s the problem! Arabs and Muslims are powerless because of an attitude problem! We just don’t have the right attitude. We just don’t have the right “success” mindset that Israelis, Americans, and the British have. If only we could fix our attitude, all these problems would melt away!

As amazingly brilliant as Pervez’s diagnosis is, I’m left with a couple of questions.
First of all, we all know how Muslims suffer a bad attitude which creates the powerlessness.
What about powerless non-Muslim Africa? Are they also suffering an attitude problem?
What about powerless non-Muslim South America? Are they also suffering an attitude problem?

What about powerless non-Muslim South East Asia? Or Eastern Europe? Or Pacific Islanders?

Are all these powerless regions suffering from an attitude problem?

Surprisingly, the only people with the right attitude on the planet are Americans, Western Europeans, and Israelis. Everyone else is too dumb to realize that with a simple attitude adjustment, they too can become big powerful superpowers that can bomb poor people at will.

Pervez has no answer to these questions because he can’t think outside 200 year-old Enlightenment drivel he swallowed from the British. Pervez’s talking points are literally 200 years old and he hasn’t updated them one iota. It’s kind of sad.

What is most pathetic about these upper-class, educated, secular desis (and Arabs, Persians, Malaysians, Turks, etc.) is that they have been pushing the same lines about science, reason, blah blah blah for decades now.

But these same people have the PhDs. They have the “right attitude.” What have they produced in all this time? Where is the amazing, world-changing contribution of Hoodbhoy and his elite friends and fans? Have they added anything (other than hot air)?

Just pathetic.

    • Exactly n i wonder how people are following his nonsense . He’s the most illogical personality I’ve seen in pakistan .Even some ex muslims are better than him who at least have something to offer.

      • all ex muslims are the same. an arab scholar said about arab secularists that if the westerners were drinking urine these arab secularists would not only drink urine but enjoy it. the same goes for all murtads and enemies of islam in muslim lands

  1. “But the two groups have different attitudes towards success and different role models. The Ashkenazi child wants to be Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, John von Neumann, George Wald, Paul Samuelson, Gertrude Elion, Ralph Lauren, George Soros […]”

    Most Jewish kids have absolutely no clue who these people are, except from Albert Einstein…maybe.

    “Compare this with the Arab boy who wants to be Salahuddin Ayubi and the Pakistani lad who dreams of becoming Ertugrul Ghazi.”

    If only this were to be true. Unfortunaly it isn’t. Ertugrul by the way was an unknown figure in the Muslim world until very very recently. People only came to know of him through a popular Turkish drama series with the same name. Most Muslim boys today dream of being a world famous professional athlete/soccer player like Ronaldo or Messi.

    Doesn’t this clown know that Ashkenazis were nearly wiped out from existence only 80 years ago? Guess they didn’t listen to Bach or Beethoven.

    Arabs are indeed relatively weak. But this is because they – at the beginning of the 20th centery – were experimenting with secular ideas like: communism, socialism and Arab-nationalism at the expense of Islam. This was mainly true for the elites…the masses were drowning in Sufi rituals, grave worship, sihr and al kinds of superstition and blatant shirk. Arabs, and Muslims in general, have historically been weakened and destroyed once they moved away from Islam and adopted un-islamic ideas and practices.

    • “Arabs, and Muslims in general, have historically been weakened and destroyed once they moved away from Islam and adopted un-islamic ideas and practices ” it’s funny how true this is but Murtadden refuse to admit it

  2. Without decades of constant Western support and protection, particularly American aid amounting to trillions of dollars israel wouldn’t last a day. Everyone knows this. Hoodbhoy is as dishonest as he is stupid. An angry old communist who still hasnt gotten over the fact that the Soviet Union no longer exists.

    • he is not a communist. he is just an idiot who ejaculates when he sees anything from the west and has nothing to offer except centuries old arguments which were refuted centuries ago

      • Look into his background, he is a Marxist, but doesn’t talk about it because Communism is dead as a global ideology. A lot of these types grew up high on communism but after the fall of the USSR repackaged themselves as “progressives” and “liberals” seeking patronage from the West.

      • I absolutely deplore Hoodbuoy and agree with Daniel, but as Muslims with enough understanding to see all that, can we please also have some etiquette while talking in public? Can the language in the comments please not be obscene. Decent language is also what Islam promotes, and we can express ourselves adequately within limits.
