yep you are.......how many Catholics/Protestants abandoned their faith in Norton Iron because the people who tried to kill them shared the same sky-pixie? The forces of Harry the Hun had 'Gott Mit Uns' on their belt buckles in two world wars - should the entire forces of the Allied powers have abandoned their faith?
She is being groomed by the British establishment to one day lead Pakistan, the UK has done this for years with different folk ...but don't call it political meddling.

a bit like Benazir Bhutto then, who despite going to both Harvard & Oxford went back to Pakistan became PM, was dismissed by the President for corruption and got slotted by the fundamentalists for being too western. So not a good role model Benazir Bhutto - Wikipedia
snip "Bhutto was a controversial figure. She was often criticised as being politically inexperienced and corrupt, and faced much opposition from Pakistan's Islamist lobby for her secularist and modernising agenda. She nevertheless remained domestically popular and also attracted support from Western nations, for whom she was a champion of democracy and women's rights. Several universities and public buildings in Pakistan bear Benazir's name, while her career influenced a number of activists including Malala Yousafzai."
 
The 'simple schoolgirl' is nothing of the sort.
She's from a very well connected political family and her fathers mouthpiece.
How odd.The cover notes on her latest book tell a different story.
As a child in Pakistan, Malala made a wish for a magic pencil that she could use to redraw reality. She would use it to give gifts to her family, to erase the smell from the rubbish dump near her house, to sleep an extra hour in the morning. As she grew older, Malala wished for bigger and bigger things. She saw a world that needed fixing. And even if she never found a magic pencil, Malala realized that she could still work hard every day to make her wishes come true.This beautifully illustrated picture book tells Malala's story, in her own words, for a younger audience and shows them the worldview that allowed her to hold on to hope and to make her voice heard even in the most difficult of times.
 
'The rubbish dump near her house' - she's lucky to have a proper dump. Most in that region just have the rubbish strewn everywhere.

She's deffo posh if their neighbourhood has a dump!
 
She's one cute Ukrainian Snow Princess! Her grandfather's likely to be merged with Father Christmas/St Nicholas over the next few generations as the Ukes look west, shame, there's room for all, strangely the Uke government has just recognised December 25th as "another official Christmas" as well as the orthodox one....

Belarus celebrates both too... The western third of Belarus is largely Roman Catholic like neighbouring Poland. I agree, there is room for both. My little lad celebrates both Father Christmas and Ded Muroz.
 
I'm trying to start a tradition where "not my grandchildren" get a small present on Dec 25th as part of my re-education programme - if only Stalin had given out chocolate Santas instead of creating famines and Gulags the world might have been a happier place....
