Benazir was all of these, but like her father, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, and a number of other Pakistani political leaders she also left a flawed political track record that both reflected and contributed to many problems.

The Reason for Western Society’s Demise

“The Koran states, ‘Do not with your own hands cast yourselves into destruction,’ which is exactly what Western man has done.

The Candidates and Their Supporters
