I’m standing up for the principle of democracy. I’m standing up for moderation. And I’m standing up for hope for all the people in Pakistan who today are poor and miserable and really quite desperate..” ~~ Benazir Bhutto, CNN Interview of 28 September 2007.

In 1775, Patrick Henry delared “Give me Liberty or Give me Death,” at Saint John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia. That declaration set the course for revolution and independence for Americans. It was the cry that has reverberated in the hearts of mankind ever since. Many freedom lovers around the world have met death in their quest for liberty for themselves and others.

Today it was the American educated woman freedom fighter, Benazir Bhutto, who was martyred in freedom’s name in her own native land of Pakistan. Today, it was a Muslim woman, Benazir Bhutto, murdered in a Muslim land, by her fellow male Muslims. BBC News.
