The heavens have given Bangladesh the victory of the right party, which Bangladesh needed, at this particular juncture.

The story of the previous occasion when the Awami League were given a chance in 1996, after 21 years absence from power was both good and bad. More specifically it started off good for about 2 years, and then it went down hill after that, for the rest of the 3 years, when the two begums locked horns, and entered into parochial personalized petty party politics (Chota Lauk ganda Rajniti), that misdirected the focus of the Awami League away from dealing with substantive national issues, but instead dealt with personalized issues along with the usual allegations of gross corruption (Mainly related to relatives of Sheikh Hasina's, and her ministers making money on the side etc)

I am not expecting miracles from the Awami league, they after all are a staple stock of Bangladeshi politics, but clearly judging by their victory of 229 seats out of 300, under transparent fair post military elections, the people of Bangladesh are hoping for a miracle of governance from them.

One hopes the Awami League don't waste this extraordinary national mandate.

So what is their program going to be, in government?

I am making some basic suggestions first with external relations, then internal later.

India is the big elephant in the room, and for better or worse Bangladesh must learn to live with the country in a constructive manner that benefits both countries. There are after all 20 million "Bangladeshis" living in India in Assam and West Bengal, and one imagines that number will rise as the years progress, and Bangladesh fails to control its population growth.

  • The first and most important requirement is open and free trade between the two neighbors. That means a complete and full FTA with India, which leaves nothing protected from each other. Free trade is the great solidifier of good neighborly relations. I understand within the context of SAARC, there are certain FTA initiatives on going, but that is too slow and incremental. So I urge a signing of an India/Bangladesh FTA, which comes into effect immediately in 2009. This will boost Bangladesh's economy, and possibly legalize the illicit trade of over $3-4 billion between the two countries which is not registered, due to the high tariff and bureaucratic barriers that exist in both nations, but especially in India. Also an FTA will help balance the imbalance of trade between India and Bangladesh, as Bangladeshi businessmen venture into the country for joint projects with Indian firms. FTA's or the like is the normal way of doing business in an increasing number of countries around the world, both rich and poor, both between nations which are neighbors and between nations who are far apart geographically. Besides being an economic agreement between two nations, FTA's also serve as a political statement of solidarity and friendship between two nations, and India and Bangladesh unequivocally should enter into such an agreement immediately. It is long overdue.
  • Liberalization and streamlining of customs procedures on the land borders for business specifically. The expansion of facilities of customs for business in a greater number of border posts, and not just the four border posts which currently are empowered to deal with all commodity imports from India.
  • Allied to the above we require better road and rail linkages between the two countries, which mainly India pays for financed from the massive $300 billion FCR of India, and Bangladesh also chips in on her side of the border--modern highways between the two nations, and modern freight rail links, commodity depos/warehouses, ports etc; the whole works.
  • The streamlining of visas between the two countries--visa waivers for businessmen from both countries.
  • The sale of natural gas from Bangladesh to India--$4--5 billions worth annually.
  • Bangladesh should be able to construct a barrier on her side of the Ganges river to control the water flow, rather than rely on India to control the valve and water flow.
  • The construction of a canal that takes excess water from the Jamuna river into India, AND the supply of water into the Western part of Bangladesh where water levels run short during the non-monsoon season. Joint Indo-Bangladesh canal project.
  • Bangladesh can borrow money from India to finance such projects mentioned above and other developmental projects, rather than wait for and rely on the IMF or World Bank. In such a scenario both parties will ensure there is no mismanagement of their funds into the wrong channels which has traditionally been the case with big projects in the past.

These above things need to be done immediately with haste rather than later, when inertia sets in.

  • Bangladesh should seek closer military ties with India. What does that mean practically? The signing of a security pact between the two nations. If India goes to war Bangladesh will commit her forces to help and defend India, and vice versa---such a pact irons out security and strategic ambiguities between the two neighbors that might exist, or might be perceived to exist between them. This single act alone moves the relationship of the two countries forward at several levels in different spheres.
  • The undertaking of regular joint military exercises between the armed forces of India and Bangladesh: The army, navy and airforce, paramilitary, military intelligence.
  • Agreements signed where Bangladesh sends a greater percentage of her cadets for training in India from the army, airforce and navy.
  • Foreign military presence in Bangladesh should cease.
  • Bangladesh should try and develop her military systems along India's lines, and should accept regular military aid from India.
  • There should be regular bi-yearly meetings between the top military brass of Bangladesh and India, after the security pact has been signed by the two countries consecutively in both countries.
  • There should be regular bi-yearly meetings between the top intelligence officers of Bangladesh and India (RAW/DGFI), after the security pact has been signed by the two countries consecutively in both countries.
  • There should be regular bi-yearly meetings between the top police officers of Bangladesh and India, after the security pact has been signed by the two countries consecutively in both countries.

With internal Bangladesh national policies, oh God where does one start? Ask me later, its new years eve.

Suffice to say a historic opportunity has arrived for both nations, and it should not be wasted, and India should be magnanimous, generous and open minded with Bangladesh, rather than being dictatorial with the perspective that the Awami league as its regional appendage.


The BJP and Good Idea's.

The BJP is an interesting party, operating as a "nice friendly" front for the RSS/VHP. Came from nowhere in the late eighties, to form a government in 1998, and then in one of their very first acts in power was to explode a few nuke bombs (5 ), to which Pakistan replied with 6, in Baluchistan. Ass holes, of course. All of them.

I've got them down as foreign backed destabilization agents out to subvert traditional Indian politics with linkages with Israel and extremist NRI groups in the UK/USA........rather like the Young Turks in the Ottoman empire backed by the Rothschild's of Britain(1908)----destroyed the Ottoman empire, and killed millions, Muslim Turks, Arabs and Christian subjects; The Bolsheviks in Czarist Russia backed by Jewish capitalists based in NY(1918)----60 million killed; Mussolini's Fascist in Italy backed by the Rothschilds of UK(1923)---did a lot of damage to Italy; The Nazi Party in Germany backed by Jewish capital from NY, and London (1933)-------10 million Germans killed, and finally Pol Pot in Cambodia backed by Communist China (1975)---up to 3 million killed.

With their rise in Indian politics we have also had their crazy antics: The Babri Masjid destruction; riots and massacres across India including attacks against Christians and Buddhists; Narendra Modi and the Gujarat massacres ; communal politics; ultra nationalism in all spheres of public life, where WHOLESOME natural criticism of state officials and their policies can get you labeled as a "Desh Drohi" (Hemant Kakare). An intolerant masturbatory Fascist atmosphere as been instituted into Indian political and social life (MF Hussain, the leading painter of India lives in exile because the mighty "Superpower" Indian government can't guarantee his safety, from a few street thugs).

Finally and most dangerous of all, the BJP since 2000, invited Israeli security officials to train Indian security personnel, including allowing their presence in 'sensitive' Kashmir (put the alcoholic in charge of the wine cellar). And guess what? Lo the number of terrorist incidents on mainland India beyond Kashmir, has since multiplied. Have a guess good reader what is really causing that enormous rise in terrorism in mainland India? And you don't even have to be a certified "expert", just requires a little common sense, and following the news in the alternative media.

The BJP plays politics of the lowest common denominator, and that for India and South Asia is general is very very very dangerous.

Logically the party should not have existed in the first place, and a more bold Indian Supreme Court should have cited its dangerous communalism, and religious fascism to declare it illegal; Contrary to the Secular principles of the Indian Constitution. But alas no, and instead I hear the Supreme Court of India is all to eager to cite such monumental configurations of judicial reasoning as "Public sentiment"-------Hello?!!!! Lets bring on the witch doctors, the bongo drums, and have ourselves a happy Divali dance around the fire and lights.

Saying that war with Pakistan is the "last option", BJP president Rajnath Singh on Monday called for joint economic sanctions by United States and India against the Islamic nation, which he said has become a sanctuary to Jihadi mercenaries and a cradle of global terrorism.

The USA/UK are the two primary countries with the most influence in Pakistan by providing training for the top brass of the armed forces and intelligence, and also significant amounts of weaponry. For historical post colonial reasons, through the narrow elite structure of Pakistan, the British also have considerable influence, through the 500 Zamindar/Tamindar families which run Pakistan as their feudal fiefdom, and the 30 so called "Commercial" families including Nawaz Sharif. This has been the case since Pakistan was created by the BRITISH in 1947.

If Mr. Rajnath Singh studies his history books a little bit more he will note that whilst a good deal of the Congress rank and file with the leadership were locked away by the British during the war, the British actively aided the Muslim League into becoming a mass based party (1940-47) from its elitist routes, when it was first founded in 1905 in Dhaka with active encouragement from Lord Curzon governor general of Bengal and then the Viceroy of India. Just like the BJP it suddenly appeared into Indian politics, with riots, massacres (Calcutta 1946---what did they call it in those days, "Direct Action Day"--in English of course) and overt Communalism

---so no change here with the current BJP/RSS/VHP tactics.

Given this REALITY, the Americans are not going to impose stringent sanctions against Pakistan, their puppet client state, WITH India as a partner. Why should they? What for? Lets look at 1965, when they imposed limited sanctions against Pakistan for initiating war against India. Though there was a strict arms embargo imposed by America on Pakistan for using Americans meant to bolster and fight Communism, the Americans never the less were supplying a lot of arms, if not more to Pakistan between 1965--1971. From Vietnam through American stockpiles there, and more significantly via Iran, with arms from Germany, Canada and arms transferred from America to Iran, and then to Pakistan (The Shah, puppet of America, pledged his entire airforce to Pakistan during the 1971 war).


The Americans aren't going to impose sanctions on Pakistan because they actually control the country as their client state.

The Pakistani military and intelligence function as an annex to American geostrategy in the region.

Even if sanctions are imposed by the Americans, it will only be very superficial, because of their need to keep the channels open to their puppets in Pakistan, the military/intelligence configuration. Some security analysts have actually suggested that it is the Americans who choose who becomes head of the Pakistan armed forces and its intelligence head. That is a very good possibility which I agree with.


The problem of Pakistan for India is not Pakistan, .............but America and the UK. Salman Rushdie wrote excellent essays back in the early 1980's which stated that there is still great nostalgia for the British Empire among the British elite, and in alliance with American Jews who wish to use American power to dominate the world (PNAC 2000 document)-------that means India isn't a "friend" of America, but merely a means to an end, possibly to be used against China later, given badges and awards, after being used against Pakistan.

An updated Jewish model of the Soviet/Nazi Germany conflict of 1941-45, where Jewish capital from NY, London built up both sides so that they could conduct a genocidal conflict with each other. China (Soviet Union) India (Nazi Germany) if you will, as an analogy. When two sides destroy each other it allows Jewish capital to come into the weakened states and further reinforce their control via their local agents.

So Mr. Rajnath Singh all you will get from the USA/UK is gestures and lip service in the direction of Pakistan in relation to Mumbai. Which the Pakistani puppets of the USA/UK will shrug off as harmless mud slinging from Babuji. They will do their routine gestures of reconciliation of lets talk talk talk talk talk talk talk and talk some more, but in the final analysis empty gestures devoid of meaning and purpose.

Has Zardari visited India yet? NO. Has Kiyani visited India yet? NO. But they can find the time to visit such great nations as the UAE, Saudi, Greece and Turkey which allegedly are very important for Pakistan strategically and diplomatically. Zardari has visited America a number of times since assuming power, and if you observe him in America he does look at home, very pleased with himself, unlike many statesmen from other countries, who adopt a more somber statesman like demeanor.

So Mr. Rajnath Singh you are a seasoned reasonably intelligent politician, and you can work out who is the puppet, and who is the puppet master in Pakistan, and in that sense the Indian PM going around the world trying to generate outrage against Pakistan is a little futile and immature in the a fore mentioned context as it doesn't correctly identify the real forces which control Pakistani politics, which exercise real power in the country.)

"The UPA government considers the US as India's strategic partner after signing the Indo-US civilian nuclear deal. It is high time that the Centre uses its diplomatic channels with United States to stop all financial assistance to Pakistan and work jointly to impose economic sanctions against it," Rajnath told a press conference in Mumbai.

(A logical aim by any Indian government which is convinced Pakistan is responsible for all terrorism on Indian soil, to test what this "friendship" actually means between the two nations. But in reality I can't see this happening for reasons mentioned before.

But good to see an Indian politician at least identify the importance of the USA in Pakistani politics, even if he hasn't described the full spectrum/scenario/depth of Pak-USA relations. A big improvement though on the Congress stand of hand over 30 so and so fugitives from Indian justice, NOW. Or Pakistan has 30 days to sort it ALL out viz terrorism. Or going around a couple of countries and telling them to reign in Pakistan...as if they would for India just like that.)

He said the US aid to Pakistan is nearly USD 2 billion a year. Recently, US was instrumental in the International Monetary Fund (IMF) providing USD 7.6 billion package to save Pakistan from bankruptcy.

(If one needed more proof of who actually calls the shots in Pakistan, Mr. Pranab Mukherjee , the question which was asked by the Indian foreign secretary, addressed a couple of posts before here------this is all good stuff, because first we must grasp and try and understand the problem, as it really is, at its source, then maybe some solutions there after)

"According to credible media reports published in US dailies, Pakistan has been diverting the monetary assistance from Western countries to fund terrorist modules against India," the BJP leader said.

(I wouldn't trust the American media, especially the NYT. Pakistan since 2001 has received between $10-12 billion assistance, from the USA, perhaps more that we don't know about. Some of that as military aid and the rest as economic aid. Pakistan currently receives $100 million every month in security assistance for pledging to fight the Pashtun resistance in FATA. According to some military analysts a good deal of that aid is diverted to arms systems that target India, through the Pak military. Or pocketed by corrupt military personnel in Pakistan.

In Kashmir, where between 20-40 resistance groups exist, some working for Pakistan/ISI, some working for RAW, and some operating independently (very few). The Kashmir separatists are lightly armed, often with AK-47 and other light arms, and so no overt evidence that American technology is being diverted into the Kashmiri separatist groups, unless one day they turn up with Apache helicopters, F-16, Abram tanks etc. The ISI which works closely with America would not be stupid enough to embarrass the Americans by having their marked equipment being used in Kashmir, by Kashmiri separatists. Pakistan has considerable non-American equipment (Chinese) and a sizable ordinance capacity to more than match the needs of the Kashmiri separatists.

Other so called "Islamic terrorism" in the rest of India looks like the work of the RSS in collaboration with rogue security personnel (Srikant Parohit). We need a couple of more Hemant Karkares to get to grips with that particular problem. Maybe even the new behemoth bureaucracy construction of the NIA can focus on that area and ask some hard questions.

He said Pakistan leadership has also admitted that "non-state players" were involved in the Mumbai attacks last month. "Pakistan is a nuclear-weapon state. The international community must take cognizance of the fact that it cannot control the non-state actors operating in the country. It is also important to note whether Pakistan's nuclear weapons are a threat to world peace," he added.

(Can't really rely on what Pakistani leaders say. I really don't believe any Pakistani leaders have accepted Pakistani culpability in the Mumbai terrorist saga, including non state actors. They continue to refuse to be believe that Kasab is from Pakistan, and they have rejected his letter addressed to the Pakistani government. They have no plans of handing over Ibrahim Dawood to India, or the rest of the 40 odd fugitives allegedly wanted by India, both criminal and political fugitives.

Yes Pakistan is a failed sate number 9 from the bottom, and some parts of Pakistan are lawless, for example Baluchistan, FATA and other parts of the NWFP. The Pakistani government has reasonable control over the Kashmiri separatists, and have some linkages with the Taliban, which Pakistan created with active American encouragement back in 1994, under Bill Clinton's Presidency.

With al-Qaeda, the organization simply doesn't exist, but is merely a front for Western/Israeli covert ops in the Greater Middle East. Pakistan's role in the al-Qaeda myth is to maintain that myth, and from time to time when it is useful for American political consumption, provide individuals presented as "al-Qaeda", from the 12,000 foreign jihadis whom they trained and who fought with the Afghan Mujaheddin in the 1980's.......against the Soviet Union.

Another good reason why America can't impose sanctions against Pakistan with India. The Americans need Pakistan to maintain the myth that OBL is still alive and somewhere in FATA (Its is assumed he died in 2001 December, which Benazir Bhutto had subsequently confirmed in October 2007, and the CIA has dismantled its unit looking for him in 2005. Musharaf has stated that OBL is irrelevant and Pakistan is not looking for him. ALL very strange don't you think, as since late 2003 we have had many videos purporting to be him giving messages for his followers--SO!!!!! )---but a myth must be maintained and the Pakistani military/political establishment help America maintain that myth, as puppets and servants of America.

Some Indian journalists falsely term this as the "Pakistani striptease" implying somehow Pakistan controls "al-Qaeda", and hands over "al-Qaeda" characters to suit Pakistani geostrategy of keeping the Americans happy from time to time, but this is misleading (partial truth, in that since its creation by Britain in 1948 the ISI has operated as an annex to Western geostrategy in South, and Western Asia----TRANSLATION---What the ISI knows and does, The British and Americans already know AND CONTROL) since there is no such organization as al-Qaeda,

and many Western government insiders have confirmed this to be the fact, and ALL intelligence organizations know this to be the fact.

Former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski told the Senate that the war on terror is "a mythical historical narrative"

Indian politicians should also inform themselves of these FACTS, along with the new NIA, if it does anything useful ........certainly the NIA should do an investigation of the Mumbai terrorist incident since that is the incident which initiated the creation of the bureaucratic apparatus.

Pakistan is a failed state because of America/UK, and thus represents a long term liability for India. Individuals within the Pakistani elite structure are quite happy to help America fail the Pakistani nation, and therein lies the problem since its existence from 1947, and for India, and for Afghanistan, and for Bangladesh not so long ago, and maybe even against Iran--Jundallah)

For serious hardball ultra nationalists of India, who are intelligent and informed these are the things Mr. Rajnath Singh, Mr. Advani et al should be asking and thinking about.

1. Who really controls Pakistan?
2. Who trains the top security officials of Pakistan, and thus exercises extreme undue influence over the country?
3. Which nation provides the bulk of foreign military/security aid to Pakistan which buys that country extreme undue influence over Pakistan?
4. Which country has foreign military bases, and thousands of security personnel in Pakistan?
5. Which country conducts security operations with Pakistani security around Pakistan, jointly going back 40 years? "Operation Cyclone" and "Operation Greenbelt"? Pakistan is conducting operations in FATA at the behest of American insistence, and these operations are financed to the tune of $1.2 billion a year. Which country can bomb inside Pakistani territory with Pakistani government and security approval, day in day out for ever, including the collateral damage of killing mainly civilian Pakistanis?-----wouldn't this alone indicate to you who has influence over the country?
6. Which countries have large number of troops in Afghanistan? A South Asian country historically linked to India. Fighting the Taliban created by who, through who?
7. Which country propagates the false GWOT narrative? For what purpose? How does that benefit India long term?
8. If I am ultra South Asian nationalist, Hindu otherwise from South Asia, I would want to know in light of history, what 8,000 British troops were doing in Afghanistan, with more coming. If the Americans occupy Pakistan and Iraqify the country, what adverse affects will that create for India? What guarantees are there that the Americans and the British will not stop their destabilization activities on the borders of Pakistan there after?

Is Pakistan destabilizing and tying down 500,000 Indian security personnel in Kashmir for the sake of Pakistan, or for America/UK? The Pakistanis surely know that they can never attain Kashmir realistically, so why are they continuing to back Kashmiri insurgency?


Clear direction and level headed thinking from India.

Launching strikes in Pak: Will it serve the purpose?

NDTV Correspondent

For the last several days, there has been talk of how the impasse after the Mumbai terror strikes could pave the way for military strikes on terror hubs in Pakistan.

(There is no impasse in reality, only a perception of impasse, by some .The Indian authorities need to initiate full investigations of the affair, the role of the senior Mumbai police officers, more investigations about the terrorists and their background, and then share the information with the Pakistani authorities, and then face to face meetings there after........beyond media spats and ultimatums serious logical state to state processes need to be instituted. All this takes time.

Inviting a couple of security agencies from the West to verify hasty Indian allegations, when no full investigations have been instituted and their report finalized, and then make ultimatums of hand over individuals or else, or "you have so many days left to work miracles", is not the way of going about conducting business with a neighbor.

{Would China or Russia allow foreign security agencies to undertake investigations in their country? Of course not, because these countries respect the competency of their own state security agencies}

(i) Judicial inquiry into the performance of the local and national security of India in Mumbai. How do you have 10 late adolescent young AMATEURS hold off India's finest security of 800 + men, and 40,000 police for the better part of 3 days, without sleep constantly fighting in 13 different locations all at the same time, or similar times, in groups of 2, 3 or 4--mathematically, logically, physically impossible-----and the Judicial inquiry should give us answers. The Congress Party should have nothing to fear from this at least, I assume.

(ii) Judicial inquiry into the terrorists of Mumbai, jointly with Pakistan. I first thought this offer of a joint probe was a gimmick by the Pakistani government, to buy time and fudge the issue, but thinking about it a little further, its not such a bad idea-------once the Pakistanis start working with their Indian colleagues through this one incident in Mumbai, India can use that channel of cooperation to press Pakistan on other related matters especially in Kashmir, more effectively. If Zardari the gangster from Sindh is trying to be a little different from the Pak armed forces and separate himself from them, then the Indian government should accept this offer. If the Indians can invite several foreign security to look at their internal security, they should be more then willing to work with Pakistan to get at into this problem further jointly.

(iii) Judicial inquiry into Hemant Kakares death, and his whole field of work.

An opportunity has arrived for the Congress Party to reinforce its position vis a vi India, and Pakistan........that leads to meaningful outcomes for all.

Verbal spats through the media, I repeat again have limited utility. The only foreign countries that matters in Pakistani politics is the USA, and the UK. Asking China, Iran, Saudi............whats next, the Maldives? to curb Pakistan is not effective, because these countries don't have the power and influence that the USA/UK has over the country. And it makes India look ineffective diplomatically, because what India desires simply will not take place in Pakistan.

Additionally Kashmir belongs to India, and realistically Pakistan can do very little about that. Unfortunately the thinking by some in Pakistan, especially in the military is that if India helped the Mukti Bahini liberate East Pakistan, with 80,000 fully armed fighters, and thus divide the country why can't Pakistan do the same if Kashmiris desire ceding from India? There are a couple of problems with this Pakistani equation. First the Pakistani armed forces on the 25th of March launched a genocidal campaign in East Pakistan, and thus effectively forced East Pakistanis to seek liberation. Second the manner of the genocidal campaign by the Pakistani army created massive refugee problems for India---10 million East Pakistanis flooded into India. No country could tolerate such a situation, and so India's hand was also forced on the East Pakistan matter. The conduct of the Indian armed forces in Kashmir is not like the Pakistani armed forces performance in relation to East Pakistan. You cannot equate the two.

And so the Pakistanis must be educated to the fact that they should not allow their territory to be used for insurgency operations in Indian Kashmir. But not through threats, but through legalising the current LoC, as a permament international boundary as soon as possible, and it becomes a non-issue there after.

Additionally can we finally have joint regular meetings of security officials from both countries, beyond the Mumbai incident. Between the armed Forces heads of each country; the intelligence chiefs and finally the senior police, along with the usual bureaucrats.

Though both Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Pakistani counterpart have stated that war should be avoided.

(But there is a diplomatic language of flip flopping which creates uncertainty.......which causes the Pakistanis to transfer troops from the West where they are engaging Pashtun insurgents, and redeploying them along the Indian border)

There have been reports of how both Indian and Pakistani forces remain on full alert for a military confrontation, but armed forces remain on alert even during peacetime and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have proven that conventional military strikes cannot defeat a determined terrorist force.

In the current situation in the subcontinent, here is why a military option may achieve very little.

Bombs can destroy structures, terrorists can disperse

India's frontline fighters are armed with laser guided bombs, the bombs that can strike a target with pinpoint accuracy. But while this can be used to target structures, how can bombs eliminate terrorist groups who could be expecting such strikes and may well have dispersed from their terrorist camps.

Will India risk a war with a nuclear-armed Pakistan?

Is the government prepared to launch air strikes on the territory of a country, which is armed with nuclear weapons and where there is no clarity on who controls the weapons, civilians or the military.

Conventional war cannot destroy terrorism

In the event of a Pakistani counter-attack, which is entirely expected, a battle to target terrorists could well turn into a full-scale war between India and Pakistan. This would be fought using tanks, warships and fighter aircraft. How would this thwart terrorism?

Pakistan's army would shift away from containing terrorists

Is it in India's interests to fight an army, which is otherwise occupied in containing terrorism on the Afghanistan front?

Reserve formations not mobilised

Even if India prepares for war, it would take more than a month to have its defences in place on the western front, which requires massive mobilisation. This has not happened.

A war will be costly

Economically, a war between India and Pakistan even for a period of two or three weeks would cost thousands of crores. This would damage the foreign investment climate and affect GDP growth.

Perhaps the biggest concern for India is the game of brinkmanship being played out. There is a danger that Pakistani forces could provoke an Indian reaction thereby deflect from the real issue of emanating terrorism from its soil. This could be done through:

  • Massive artillery shelling in areas along the line of control or in areas such as Siachen.
  • Engaging Indian helicopters or aircraft operating close to the line of control or international border with missiles or gunfire.
  • (Pakistan is a failed state that needs to be protected from itself. Pakistan's disintegration does not serve India's long term interests because:

    (i) A disintegrated Pakistan creates more problems for India then the current united one (current population 175 million, and that will reach around 400 million by 2050. A united Pakistani state is the best agent to deal with this future demographic problem---a disintegrated state will create MASSIVE social and economic problems for India. Never mind security issues. Just think about what 20 million Bangladeshis have done to Indian demographics in Bengal and Assam alone.

    (ii) Who can say with certainty that the "East India company" forces who have been destabilising Pakistan for many decades don't turn their attentions on India there after, when they have finished with Pakistan. In the Third World we are after all facing a new neo-colonialism.)

    Pakistan is going through a difficult patch, and India I say again needs to manage Pakistan and guide the country into a EU style organisation for South Asia as soon as possible. That is the best solution to the Pakistan problem, for India.


    The Media.

    The Media is very powerful. They shape our perceptions of everything, and most of us without a critical self reflective attitude absorb everything they throw at us. It is most dangerous when "simple minded" people become absorbed by them. Most dangerous indeed.

    There was a comedy on British television, called "Mind Your Language" which ran from 1977-1979. It was a comedy which indulged in the British pastime time of ridiculing foreigners, in their stereo-typical mannerisms of two dimensional characters. It was comedy meant for the working class native British masses in the UK as it dealt with simple comforting stereo typical views of foreigners, and at one level one can dismiss such comedy as harmless fun, where several nation are also made fun of (The native English characters are reasonably respectable---a slightly frigid female principle, but nothing else) . At another level real life can sometimes imitate art, and a lot of simpletons can and do take such shows seriously, as representing the reality, which was probably the reason the show was later canceled by the producing British channel, even though it was very popular with the British public.

    I focused on the South Asian characters. They of course are caricatures of South Asians, since South Asians, especially amongst the immigrants in the UK don't behave like that. Most are very hard working, with many now very successful, and most certainly wouldn't have the time and energy to attend evening classes, learning "Hinglish" and arguing with each other openly in front of the whole class. And because most good South Asians in the UK are too busy trying to be successful.

    Most Indian immigrants to the UK already had basic working knowledge of English to get by in most work environments.

    One can take such characters seriously, or not seriously depending on ones point of view. The program was of course very racist, and subsequently stopped after two years.......and the South Asian characters come across very badly, constantly arguing with each other in a effeminate childish way, which in reality is not the case with South Asians in Britain.

    I remember the show specifically because the lines on the show was constantly reminded to me at school over 30 years ago: "A thousand apologies"----the Indian Ranjit Singh (Sri Lankan actor), and "Oh dearie me" the Pakistani (Bangladeshi actor!).....and of course the very old favorite, "Goodness Gracious me"...............so a comedy? Ahem...not for me. The lines from that show were used to ridicule me, and I hated it, as I am sure any self respecting South Asian would growing up in Britain at that time would have.

    Incidentally most of my associates at university in the UK were clean shaven Jat Sikhs, and I wasn't aware that Asians overtly clubbed together on the basis of nationality, at least at university.

    I watched a few episodes to pass the time last Wednesday on a British online website? What was I thinking? Christmas, nostalgia maybe, after 30 years of the passage of time and because of the memories of British secondary school, the 1970's generally, and the curiosity of youth trying to fit into an alien society. But now this is all no longer relevant, and without a care from those self conscious and impressionable teenage years.

    If RAW and the ISI are monitoring my computer, perhaps they can pass on copies of the episode of the program to their respective governments, and point out the utter comedy, indignity and absurdity of the Indian and Pakistani characters, and in the case of the two countries where life sometimes imitates art, the utter stupidity of it all now, after the events of Mumbai.

    You need more than 30 days to sort out 30 years of mess in Pakistan Mr. Singh, even after providing the full evidence to the other party, about Mumbai terrorism. If India has endured this for the better part of 18 years from Kashmir first, then there should not be a rush to rattle the saber. Threats do not constitute serious diplomacy.

    (Pakistani mess= The decision by General Zia ul-Haq to Islamise Pakistan under Sharia law; back, arm and train Islamic fundamentalist groups in Afghanistan at the urgings of the Americans/British---Brzezinski, General Robert Walker UK army, etc)

    So in my case another good reason not to watch ANY TV or cinema, since who knows what 'simpletons' might be watching.

    New years resolution.


    Who runs Pakistan?

    Well Mukherjie sahib I suspect that is a rhetorical question, rather than a question based on a genuine lack of knowledge of the real situation in Pakistan. I suspect you really do know, or have a good idea who exactly runs the country, and you are merely expressing your exasperation at the situation in Pakistan. Believe me Pakistanis are more exasperated by their government then India is, or possibly ever could be.

    The Kashmir insurgency has been festering since 1990, with base camps in Azad Kashmir, which has cost the lives of up to 50,000 people in Kashmir, the lives of countless Indian servicemen and the expense for India of maintaining of up to 500,000 security personnel there. Beyond the separate issue of false flag ops of terrorism by the Israeli/RSS nexus in India proper for the last couple of years especially since 2000, when the BJP imported Israeli security advisers (the more Israeli security advisers; the more terrorist incidents in mainland India, beyond Kashmir), India has legitimate concerns about who exactly is running Pakistan, and its security apparatus which nourish the Kashmiri separatist forces, approaching 18 years. It is a prescient logical question, and I will try my best to answer it.

    Zardari, the chamar coolie gangster has told a gathering of tribal elders in the NWFP recently that they must accept airstrikes, by Pakistani and Western forces on their homes, in the pursuit of fighting terrorists. Does that mean in that case that India has legitimate rights to bomb suspected "terrorist sites" in Azad Kashmir ? Logically India can along this line of Zardari's argument, if since September 2008, the Pakistan military and politicians have tacitly agreed to American attacks on Pakistani soil. However given the real scenario in Pakistan, which I will elaborate later if you bare with me, that might not be a good idea, even if India follows the example of the Pakistan military and American forces in Afghanistan in relation to FATA, and follows through on such a course in relation to Azad Kashmir based Kashmiri separatist groups.

    Who calls the shots in Pakistan?

    By Sandeep Phukan

    "Who is in charge in Pakistan?" That was Pranab Mukherjie's query at an international conference in Delhi.

    The remarks which indicate New Delhi's willingness to step up its diplomatic offensive against Pakistan seems to be part of a strategy, where India is trying to highlight the power structure across the border - where the civilian government seems unable or unwilling to act against terrorist outfits operating on its soil.

    (The Kashmir issue is a sensitive subject in Pakistani politics, and in many ways weak civilian governments such as Zardari's PPP can do very little but follow the agenda's of previous governments without real innovations. They can undertake gesture politics only with India because of this political reality, and not undertake real policies which deal with the fundamental problems of Kashmir, and all other outstanding bilateral issues between the two countries.

    As to the 800,000 security forces of Pakistan, they have used the Kashmir question to rally the country as a unifying force, and as a justification of their huge numbers and expenses------AND in relation to Kashmir, the problem is not the politicians, but the security people...who have agendas of their own.

    How do you deal with the security top brass of Pakistan, without seeming to attack and punish the Pakistani nation as a whole? Very difficult, as they are trained by Britain and the USA, and have close connections with these two nations and their attendant geo-strategy in the region)

    "It is not for us to tell other how to government but we would like to know with whom we should deal. In other words, who runs the show," said Pranab Mukherjee, Union External Affairs Minister.

    (failed state number 9 from the bottom. 55 cabinet ministers with portfolio, and an ex-convict as President, just installed by the USA. According to Transparency International among the most corrupt nations on earth. Its bankrupt, and exists on handouts from the IMF..........run by the USA, and UK..........through the military, ISI, Zamindars/Tamindars {500 families} and commercial families {30 families, including Nawaz Sharif}. In such a situation, who do you hold accountable in this failed state?

    You might hold the USA/UK accountable for creating the mess of Pakistan, but these powers will merely state that Pakistan is a free sovereign country, with a democratically elected government, and they have no sway over Pakistani governments and their policy agendas. The reality of course is different. Just see what the Americans can do in FATA with drone, missile and airstrikes, and just see how the chamars Coolie chauds in Pakistan react, if India strikes a insurgency camp in Azad Kashmir; you will see what I am talking about, and who REALLY calls the shots in Pakistan. Have you even made any real incursions into their airspace? Probably not. But did you see how they reacted?

    Do you understand and grasp who has created this mindset?)

    The foreign minister, chairing an international conference on a new vision for South Asia, sent out a clear message to India's neighbour: Is there any point in talking to a civilian government who don't seem to be in control?

    (It would seem NOT given the situation in Pakistan. It may seem below India's dignity to even try. But you have the reality of a neighbor which can't be ignored, with 170 million people, and nuke bombs, and a huge military, and a failed state. In that context Pakistan can't be ignored like the Maldives or Bhutan, it has to be managed for the best possible outcomes for India, and South Asia.

    The only meaningful avenue in such a situation is continue engaging Pakistan and reinforce Pakistan's long term linkages with South Asia through SAARC. Force her to sign a FTA immediately with India, legalize the LOC, offer Pakistan credit and economic aid just like India has been offering many other nations; increase the face to face cooperation and meetings between the ISI/RAW, between the military top brass of both countries, senior police and so forth of both countries on a regular basis......it will make things easier, believe me.

    Through such avenues greater understanding can be gauged between the two nations, and you will certainly get more answers should the Mumbai incident repeat itself. Where in the future you are not left confused and wondering again. What is required is greater direct face to face communication between the two countries, where the margin for misunderstanding is minimalised. Where a MOSSAD phone call to Zardari seeming to eminate from India, doesn't lead him to scramble his airforce, or a fake strike by Israel in Pakistan with IAF markings (The Israelis have trained on tanker refueling missions from Israel to Afghanistan and back with the long distant F-15 I), which leads Pakistan to think it is India.

    We need margins of error and misunderstanding to be minimalized especially in relations to security matters between the two nations.

    Beyond that Pakistan is a rotten apple, rotten to the core, you must learn to live with it as best you can and not lash out...........just remember the American/British trained Pakistan military WILL react differently to what they have approved with the USA viz FATA, if India decides to set an example this time around, against Pakistan.

    And Mukherjie sahib, really verbal spats with Pakistan have very limited utility; you can only have such shows for a certain period of time, until the Indian public tire of them. The vast majority of the electorate are concerned with "Kapur, Roti aur Makan"...."ALL terrorism in India is from Pakistan" is BJP territory.

    As to the "NEW VISION FOR SOUTH ASIA" permit me to be impertinent Sir. Should the Kettle call the pot black?

    Unless you are unaware, what exactly has RAW been doing in Sri Lanka for the last 30 years? Arming and training Tamils LTTE, against the Sri Lanka central government, using Indian territory and logistics. 100,000 Sri Lankans dead since the early 1980's from the civil war? Will you suggest the Sri Lankans have the right to bomb Chennai for this? Then adding fuel to the fire by inviting MOSSAD into the whole show in the 1980's!

    What has RAW been doing in Bangladesh, backing Islamic fundamentalist activity in the country, and countless acts of terrorism..........the former head of the Bangladesh army on a visit to India was asked by an Indian reporter how he would curb terrorism in his country, and in exasperation he replied "Its YOU!" meaning India and specifically RAW was active in that arena.

    Is India in Afghanistan, doing "things" in Baluchistan, and NWFP, at the invitation of the USA? Does RAW do "things" in Karachi and Sindh in general?

    Of course Sir you might say India does not do state terrorism through RAW, and I will believe you. But two things to remember, when the Americans (Filthy Jews mainly) come over to India with advice which rev's up your nations ego and military security posture:

    1) South Asia is one house, one entity, culturally, racially, historically, emotionally, geographically........you start a fire on one part of the house, because you feel like doing some macho geostrategy posturing in the region as the greatest power, then there is no guarantee that the fire will stay in that particular part, and that it might not spread to the rest of the house, out of control. Bombing Pakistani insurgency bases is an American policy, not India's.

    2) India is a poorly managed Third World country, where governance is poor, with 800 million Indians living on 20 rupees a day, with one meal a day consisting of plain rice. Its a fragile house of cards in another words. TRANSLATION: The Indian government has little capacity to manage events precisely as it wishes, ALL the time even within India, let alone outside the country (Maoists have come to power in Nepal, so the Naxals must be happy) And outside the country the classic example of course is Pakistan, a nation with an economy a tenth of India, and yet as the events around the Mumbai tradegy has shown, India still can't meaningfully communicate with Pakistan. Beyond the illusion of being a super power one day, India should be very careful, because of its delicate construction how she treads in South Asia.)

    "Genuine democracy does not come about merely by holding an election but by a process of democratisation that makes the elected representatives accountable and more importantly in ensuring that there does not exist a separate and de facto centre of power that is actually pulling the puppet strings," said Mukherjee.

    (Agreed. Pakistan is NOT a democracy...It goes through the motions of democracy. Its an Oligarchy, where the power elites change seats during elections {PPP, PML], or if one were to be a little unkind, a Kleptocracy----rule by criminals, as with Zardari's regime.

    YES! Zardari was installed by the USA/UK. He is answerable to the USA. So the Americans can bomb his country, but India cannot. You understand the real power configuration within Pakistan. The Pakistan military/ISI are answerable to the USA/UK.

    Then who is the real enemy of India ultimately and in reality? Who trains the Pak military top brass, and equips the armed forces? Which powers gave Pakistan the confidence to attack India in 1948, 1965, 1971, 1990 almost, and 1999? Who established the notorious ISI in 1948? From Wikipedia: "The ISI was the brainchild of Australian-born British Army officer, Major General R. Cawthome, then Deputy Chief of Staff in the Pakistan Army"

    Work slowly and methodically backwards and you will have all your answer of who calls the shots in Pakistan.

    Test my thesis. Attack Pakistan with airstrikes against Kashmiri separatist bases, and see what happens. Just see how the Raj Punjab Police Force reacts, in contrast to American attacks in FATA)

    Pranab Mukherjee may not have named Pakistan but it was more than clear which country he had in mind.

    (What Bengal thinks today, India will think tomorrow! Tagore??)

    From the Mumbai attacks to the Indian embassy bombings in Kabul, India has always alleged the role of Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence or ISI.

    (The FBI for what its worth have cleared the ISI of the Mumbai attacks. We have got to move forward and beyond mere finger pointing. Lets have institutionalized instruments where by the heads of the ISI/RAW, the top Military brass of the two nations meeting regularly, and the same with the police----talking face to face, submitting reports to their respective governments there after)

    "One of the terrorist has given us a chilling account of his handlers. The impunity with which these attacks are carried out is only because of the safety that has been assured to these terrorist handlers," said Mukherjee.

    (In which language did Kasab give his account? In clear English first according to Indian authorities (1st December). How can uneducated villagers from Pakistan speak English relatively well, as reported by the Mumbai police initially 1st December), then later Hindi with a Pushto accent (8th December)? How does an illiterate poor Punjabi villager learn to speak Hindi? He is on a Jihad and he can't recite the Koran clearly???? The LeT is running short on recruits who can't recite the Koran/Sura Jihadists in Pakistan hey?????? Is he really a Pakistani? Is he a Pakistani tourist abducted in Nepal, a few years back?????Do the Pakistani embassy have access to Kasab? Will Hemant Kakares investigations against the RSS/Israeli Terrorist nexus be finally published, or brushed under the proverbial carpet, and forgotten?

    India has legitimate enough grievances against Pakistan viz Kashmir terrorism/insurgency emanating from Azad Kashmir. After all 50,000 people have died in Kashmir since 1990. That is without dispute. India does not have to lump ALL incidents of terrorism in India to Pakistan, and over egg the pudding. I maintain the Mumbai terrorist incident was Mossad/RSS/Siv Sena work.

    Hat tip to Mr. Antulay, for raising perfectly legitimate questions in Parliament, about the Mumbai terrorist incident. If the Israelis with the RSS are going around India doing terrorism, that is a major security problem that needs to be dealt with by the Congress government, or ANY self respecting government of India)

    So far Pakistan's civilian government has either been in a state of denial or ineffective in curbing terrorist outfits operating from its soil. And even within Pakistan, opinion seems to be going against President Zardari who also heads the Pakistan People's party that is leading the coalition government.

    According to a survey carried out by the US-based International Republican Institute, 59 per cent would rather have PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif as the nation's President instead of Asif Ali Zardari.

    (Because he is an American installed gangster puppet. The Pakistani public have sized him up within a few months. They are living under the reality of his rule, where the situation has seriously deteriorated in Pakistan. Nawaz Sharif is basically cut from the same cloth as Zardari, from the corrupt flawed Pakistani politics, and has already served two terms, so more "hope over experience". What is needed is a no-confidence vote in parliament, and new elections. Zardari and his Kleptocracy needs to go quickly and something else put in his place. Anything else!)

    Eighty-eight per cent of the respondents in the poll believe their country is moving in the wrong direction.

    (Somehow the Pakistani public might be right----Mukherjie sahib should note it)

    A total of 76 per cent rated the PPP-led government's performance on key issues as poor.

    "Yes, there have been flip-flops, that's because this government is in transition. You see the current leadership is a leader by default. You cannot buy leaders. Nawaz Sharif has made a wise comment. We have to investigate not just for your sake but our sake," said Asma Jehangir, chairperson, Human Rights Commission, Pakistan.

    (So much needs to be done in Pakistan, not just a mere investigation of one incident in Mumbai, where I don't think Pakistan had a role. The FBI think the ISI was not involved, and I think the LeT, or even gangsters based in Pakistan weren't involved even. Pakistan as a nation has to make fundamental strategic changes to the nation, in order to survive any attempts at destroying the country by the Jews in America, and that means amongst other things:

    1) Re-orientating the armed forces/ISI away from the dangerous influence of the USA/UK( 2 nations dominated by Jews, more so the USA)..........priority number one. Where the Pakistan military finally act on the best interests of Pakistan, and not as an appendage to American geostrategy without question.

    2) Serious attempts making greater linkages with India through SAARC, with FTA's, legalizing the LOC, with greater intercourse and linkages between key officials from both the countries, and especially the intelligence, military and police.

    Time and patience seem to be running out and unless Pakistan acts firmly India says its exploring all options.

    hmmm. We must always find the time to do the right things for the whole region.We must always make the time; Tai Nah? Only India with its size, progressive development, and secular democratic agenda can do that. If India cannot then all is lost for the whole South Asia region.


    Hemant Kakare's MOSSAD file.

    Had Karkare discovered a Mossad connection?

    By Aangirfan.

    Mumbai attacks: "The satellite phones found on the terrorists showed that their last call was to a Dan Samuel in New Jersey, a Mossad agent." - IT WAS THE MOSSAD AGAIN 100% - Tell Everyone You Can

    "Karkare, who had earlier received death threats, was to deliver a report on terror activities of extremist Hindu groups to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh but he was killed in the Mumbai attacks." - Mumbai carnage: A smokescreen to kill whistleblowers?

    (In that situation Kakare's dossier about MOSSAD involvment in terrorism in India should be forwarded to the Prime Minister office, the CBI, and all other relevent Indian national security organisations, without haste. The man may have been killed, but not his excellent work. This is what Hemant Kakare would have wanted. This is what is his wife would want, who has called for fresh unbiased investigations into the Mumbai affair. This what his martyred colleagues would have wanted)

    In the Red Fort terror attack ... Muhammad Arif alias Ashfaq was caught and sentenced... Arif claimed that he was an operative for RAW, India's external intelligence agency. - Did Mumbai terrorists work through Bona-fide Indian Police Informers?


    More on the Mumbai attacks.

    I'm merely adding this to an old story simply because of the interesting new perspectives it contains:

    From the French Connection


    The latest updates in Mumbai from the Indian press and Pakistani Daily:

    -The reason why the terrorist attacks on Mumbai was done on the specific date of November 26th is that the Anti-Terror Squad chief Hemant Karkare planned to reveal to the world press the next day 27th, that the Mossad was involved in funding and training militant fanatic Hindu terrorist group, who bombed Malegaon, India a few months ago, attacks that the Indian government wanted to blame on Muslims.

    (Can we get verification of this from India? Presumably the evidence of Kakare's investigations against the Mossad is stll intact, and can still be presented. Presumably there are still elements in India who are honest and are interested in the welfare of their country)

    Karkare saw the facts and was not fast to blame the Muslims; he ordered and investigation and found out that the Hindu terrorist group did the bombing. Upon interrogating the Hindus, they admitted to Karkare and his agents that the Israeli Mossad hired and trained them to do the bombings. The Hindus pointed out two Israeli Mossad agents in Mumbai, who were arrested, interrogated, and gave confessions.

    (Who are these two Mossad agents, who were arrested earlier, and gave confessions? Are they still in custody? We know Mossad agents, no less than 11 of them were detained in 2000, in India, pretending to be Muslim religious devoutees. Under extreme pressure from Israel the 11 were later released to Israel and the BJP was in power at that time.)

    Karkare had the proof, witnesses, and confessions to blame Mossad, who planned, in arrogance, to kill Karkare one day before the expose, while at the same, time executing an Indian 9-11, "killing two birds with one stone." Karkare was shot in the back of the head while in a bullet proof vest and helmet in his jeep. In other locations, 5 of Karkare's aides on the expose were also shot to death in different areas, quelling the Mossad expose from ever coming out.

    (The Mumbai terrorist operation by Mossad was directed primarily against Kakare and his brave colleagues; hence he was one of the very first persons to to be killed. The question being did a "Terrorist" kill him, or one of his colleagues? My bet is it was one of his colleagues. The rest of the Mumbai terrorist saga is a cover story for the initial and primary act of taking out Kakare Sahib, with his "Explosive expose"----------Just imagine Indian media headlines, "MOSSAD trains Hindu extremists to attack India".

    Mossad started training Hindu LTTE insurgents in the early 1980's against the Sri Lanka government, with presumably RAW approval, and if you think about it, not a difficult leap of imagination for them to start training RSS extremists in the rest of India, a little bit later, which serves their geo-strategy in South Asia)

    -an Indian cop ran into the Chabad Lubavitch center during the attacks and was shocked to see a bunch of "white men" holding weapons, the Mossad.

    (Source: Guardian newspaper.......so no rumor)

    -the shootings started in the Chabad Lubavitch center, where many boxes of ammunition were found.


    -the terrorists' blood showed evidence that they had taken LSD, Cocaine and alcohol. This is not the behavior of a Muslim. two of the terrorists had beers before they opened fire in a restaurant. These men were mercenaries who were hired by Mossad. These mercenaries ar desperate men who work for the sake of their families, who need the money to survive in the poverty.

    (Source: BBC. Eye-witnesses at the Leopald cafe saw, men with blond hair, and punk hairstyle-----not many Pakistanis like that!!! Probably Germans from the BND---works closely with Israel--worth watching the 1st Die Hard movie)

    -the firefighters were told not to put out the fires, allowing the evidence to burn.

    (Has symbolic value as well)

    -the satellite phones found on the terrorists showed that their last call was to a Dan Samuel in New Jersey, a Mossad agent.

    (very interesting, and the source for this?)

    -many Israeli agents, more than usual, were seen and are on record as visiting all of the hotels attacked.

    (Who specifically was that who was expert enough to identify Israeli agents in the vicinity of the hotels. In other words...the source for this story)

    -the Indian woman that supposedly saved the Lubavitch child was sent to Israel and given an Israeli citizenship so that she could be monitored so that she wouldn't make a mistake and talk the truth about what really happened. The Mossad possibly has given her money and a threat not to speak of the truth but only of what they instructed her to say. It is highly likely that she was a Mossad spy playing her role.

    (With a name like hers, she probably was Indian Jewish)

    She is a so called Indian Jew, which Jews have been focusing on for a few years, as the "Indian Jews" for years were begging for acceptance as being known as Jews and Israeli citizenship, but were denied citizenship because of their lack of Israelite dna.

    (What exactly is the Israeli DNA? It is a thoroughly Mixed race. Is it the Arab Semitic one? Or the mixed Uighur-Slavic one of the Khazars? Or is it the one of ALL the Jews who married gentiles in foreign lands, over 2000 years? What ONLY unites the Jew is their utterly evil filthy North African religion)

    This created a longing within the Indian Jewish community to be recognized as Jews and to be Israelite citizens, thus the Indian Jews who would be willing to do anything for the Jews just to be recognized as a Jew and to earn Israeli citizenship they have bee begging for, for years.

    (irrelevent piece of gossip here-----Listen Iraqi Jews had to show loyalty to Israel by doing illegal things against Iraq. Egyptian Jews had to do illegal things against Egypt in order to show loyalty for Israel. American Jews.......British Jews.......French Jews.........Indian Jews...........Mumbai terrorist act in order to show loyaty to Israel)

    -Mossad affiliates in the government (which government?), Mossad agents, and the heads of the Indian government worked together to created the attacks.

    (I don't believe the likes of Mr. Narayan, current NSA, Manmohan Singh and Pranab Mukharjee are the sort who would do such things, because as astute politicians they understand that such acts only strengthens their arch foe the BJP, electorally.............it would be more pertinent to say that this act might have been OK'ed by the Shiv Sena government in Mumbai)
