Is Pakistan to blame: Mumbai terror attacks.

Watch Indian television and Pakistan is decidedly the culprit of the atrocious 26/11 attacks in Mumbai. Star News projects cartoon images of Muslim terrorists receiving training in Pakistan. Since 9/11 Bollywood has been successfully perpetuating the image of Muslims as terror-mongers and Star News clips reinforce the stereotype (Mission Kashmir, LoC Kargil, Lakshya .........and many others.......leading the charge towards conflict in South Asia, with the usual coded signals. Makes one wonder who besides the Indian Mafia controls and runs Bollywood, an important source of Indian subconscious programming).
Other channels, such as NDTV, however, are less jingoistic and their very balanced Group Editor, Barkha Dutt, is doing her best to assuage knee-jerk reactions against both Muslims within India (about 14% of India’s population) and calls for war on Pakistan. But even on her show, guest panelist Simi Garewal, who is a media personality in her own right and hosts a talk show that has previously enjoyed popularity in Pakistan, sounds worse than Donald Rumsfeld when she says, “We need to carpet bomb Pakistan. Shock and awe. That is why America has not had an attack since 2001. That is what we need to do.”
(In one sense Ayesha bhen NDTV can "seem" balanced and all that but basically if you invite a well known auntieji media figure such as Simi Garewal, to openly do her Ann Coulter/Michel Malkin shrill rants, written else where lines of "Shock and Awe" then basically in a more sophisticated way you are also culpable as the rest in such biased reporting............logically it is highly irresponsible to say such things from such people on the air..........so this is highly irresponsible of NDTV, to invite such senseless idiots, give them an open platform, and speak and utter such things, at such a sensitive time)
Pakistani television channels, initially sympathetic, soon turned reactionary and hostile. Some of the more hawkish anchors are telecasting scenes from the Gujarat massacre of Muslims in 2002 (on Pakistan TV, where Hindu RSS mobs openly butchered thousands of Muslim people including women and children in Gujarat state next to Maharastra state, Mumbai, guaranteeing a BJP victory in elections thereafter.........it is an open secret in India that the BJP incited, organised and killed the Muslim civilians........SO when something like terrorism in Mumbai happenes with elections soon in India in 2009, then you can see the level of skepticism coming from Pakistan, where the sole terrorist who survived the Mumbai terrorism is alleged by Indian authorities to be from Pakistan....bit to coincidental for Pakistanis, in light of events in Gujarat in 2002, where thousands of Muslims were killed on false charges that Muslim extremists had burnt alive Hindu pilgrims on trains-----The Modi government of Gujarat is also very close to Israel, just as they are in Mumbai, Maharastra; For those who are not familiar with South Asian politics) , when thousands were killed in communal violence. But other, more balanced anchors are asking more relevant questions. Given the evidence that we have thus far, is Pakistan really to blame?
( Unlike the Jewish controlled American media and their presentation of 9/11, I really do hope serious heavy weight anchors on prime TV in India, and the broadsheets do ask the "relevant questions"........India can't afford to start a war on false pretenses. For all India's recent successes, India is still a weak Third World country, where 840 million of its people live on just 20 rupees a day, eating one meal of rice per day. India requires long term peace, and stability in order to achieve real long term growth and prosperity for ALL its people, and not get sidetracked into ceaseless conflict with failed state Pakistan.)
The fact that the Indian government is accusing Pakistan is taken with a grain of salt as this is not the first time the Indian government has blamed Pakistan, only to find later that Pakistan had nothing to do with the violence it was being accused of. Interestingly, four times previously the Indian government falsely accused Lashkare Taiba directly as the organization sponsoring violent incidents in India, and Pakistan indirectly for harbouring the militant group, although Pakistan officially banned the outfit in 2002.
(Well Ayesha this latest incident may not be the first time, but such things have an "incrimental value" if you see what I am saying. In relation to the four terrorist incidents you are going to mention below, there were fundamental questions not addressed by the Indian government BJP/Congress, and not answered by the Indian government..........................that is not good, for both India and Pakistan.)
In each of the incidents, namely:
1) The Chattisinghpura massacre in (2000).
2) The attack on the Indian Parliament on 13 December (2001).
3) The Malagaon blasts (2006).
4) The Samjhota Express incident (2007), investigations were either refused(by the Indian government---something to hide hey?) or revealed that neither Lashkare Taiba nor Pakistan but groups from within India were responsible.
(The "Good" thing about such incidents is that they prove to varying degrees that Pakistan is not the be all end all regional shaitaan. The bad thing about such incidents is that they create false general negative perceptions about Pakistan, where Indian governments are not vigorous in pursuing the real culprits within India. By this Indian government inaction it encourages the real perpetrators within India to do it again, and creates false unwarranted negative relations between the two nations)
1) In the Chattisinghpura incident, for example, on 20 March 2000, one day before President Bill Clinton was due to arrive in India, 35 Sikhs were killed in the village of Chattisinghpura. It was said that about 15 uniformed men belonging to Lashkare Taiba and trained in Pakistan were responsible. Five days later, five men were killed by paramilitary forces in a village called Pathribal, claiming that the “foreign militants” responsible for the Sikh massacre had been found and duly eliminated. When local village people protested, investigations began. When the final results of the investigation were made public, it was found that local police were responsible for the massacre of the Sikhs.
(Well established Indian journalists have subsequently verified this story---so what are we saying here is that someone possibly in the BJP government ordered the killing of 35 Sikhs to impress Bill Clinton? And then killed 5 others innocent civilians, to implicate them as terrorists. Pakistanis Shaitaan, Indians are good?
The reality of the matter is this........Bill Clinton never did anything useful for India in his two terms (1993--2001), except visit India at the very end of two terms, and make meaningless empty gestures towards India. George Bush in that sense has done a lot more with less "fanfare" for India. The Clinton's liked China, its a Communist country (the psuedo-Jewish religious experiment) and were transferring huge amounts of strategic American technology to the country, like no other administration, and providing MFN status.
What the Americans have really done since is try built up India as a "rival" to China which I think is counter productive to long term Indian interests. Nazi Germany to the Soviet Union Jewish managed conflict redux. Fundamentally a nation becoming wealthy and prosperous naturally (India has always been rich and productive, except during British rule) should not automatically mean it is a threat to its neighbors, or that India HAS TO BE A REGIONAL RIVAL TO China. The two nations have lived in peace for 5,000 years, before Jewish Communism took over China. Such generalized perceptions of 'Rivalry" are propagated by people who may not have India's best interests at heart.
Though I fully appreciate that China is still a Communist dictatorship which has conducted aggressive wars against four of its neighbors in the past.
India is a brown people country, and traditionally from the deeply deeply deeply deeply racist Jewish perspective who control American politics, India's natural spiritually, ideology and "unique" culture is strongly repulsive to the Jews on the one hand, and Jews on the other hand feel threatened by it.
The Jews really feel more comfortable with Communist countries. For example American Jewish Capital helped Soviet modernization from the 1920's into 1991!!!!!!!!!!!!, Soviet armaments in 1941...38,000 tanks, 30,000 artillery pieces, 10,000 front line planes and bombers and 6.5 million men under arms, from a nation that was once the most backward in Europe a few years earlier. It is Jewish capital which is building up COMMUNIST China, where China is now the greatest Industrial power, and soon to be economic power.
This is how the Jews who matter in America like the Rockefeller's, Soros, Buffet's and others think; and not the pot smoking Indra Cohen's who visit India frequently and have many geniune Indian friends, but they have no real organized political power in America.
THIS IS WHAT INDIAN STRATEGIST HAVE TO GET. Their allotted role by the Jew in their strategy,.......... and not play it.
Any conflict should be avoided with Pakistan, a failed faltering state.....run by America. General Pasha current head of ISI immediately and I believe genuinely wanted to help India after the Mumbai terrorist incident, when he offered to visit India, a unigue gesture for the region. The Americans subsequently orderd him to stay in Pakistan.
And he said Acha sahib!
The problem with some Coolies/chamars in India is that just because American government officials are all friendly, with the usual grand gestures, who utter grand statements that "America will make India a great power" it does not mean that they actually like you and your country, or that such statements have any substance. But some fawning idiots in India fall for it.
The current American friendliness with India is tactical, and the Jews, and we really are talking about Jews, can turn against Brown India with their 'spiritual ideals" any time)
2) The Samjhota Express incident is more disconcerting, and one that Pakistanis remember bitterly. On 18 February 2007, two bombs went off near the Indian city of Panipat on the Samjhota Express twice-weekly train between Lahore and Delhi, initiated as its name suggests (Samjhota means "Agreement" in both Hindi and Urdu) to enhance cordial relations between the two countries. The terrorist attack, which killed 68 (mostly Pakistanis On Indian soil) and injured many others was blamed once again on Lashkare Taiba. Indian authorities claimed that the alleged perpetrator was named Rana Shaukat Ali and a photograph of the terrorist was provided. Four months later, investigations revealed that neither Rana nor Lashkare Taiba but a serving lieutenant colonel of the Indian army, Lt. Col. Purohit was responsible for the attack. Purohit, it was found, had links with Hindu militant groups and provided training to extremists.
For Pakistan, the most troubling aspect of the 26 November 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai is the fact that the three brave men who had been tasked with finalizing the findings of both the Samjhota Express incident and the Malegaon blasts linking Lt. Col. Purohit conclusively to the terrorist attacks were all killed. Mr. Hemant Karkare, in charge of the investigation, was one of the first people shot by the terrorists, followed by DIG Ashok Kale and encounter specialist Vijay Salazar.
If this is a coincidence, it is definitely a godsend for the extremist Hindu groups and the right-wing BJP, waiting to unseat the Congress government in the upcoming elections. But many in Pakistan suspect something more sinister may be involved.
It is alleged that the perpetrators of the 26/11 violence entered Mumbai by sea and arrived by trawlers from Karachi.
Karachi is 500 nautical miles from Mumbai; not an easy distance to cover in a trawler. Even if one were to assume that this was the case, India has twenty-one separate radar systems that monitor the coastal line between Karachi and Mumbai. More importantly, Sir Creek is the un-demarcated boundary along the Arabian Sea and the Rann of Kutch, straddling Pakistan’s Sindh province and the Indian state of Gujarat. This is both an international border and a source of dispute between India and Pakistan. The 1965 war between the two nations began at the Rann of Kutch.
In August 1999, a Pakistani surveillance aircraft was shot down by the Indian Air Force in the Rann of Kutch. The area is heavily patrolled. How the trawler made it all the way to Mumbai without being detected is a mystery, especially since fishermen on both sides of the border, both Indian and Pakistani, regularly find themselves apprehended as they mistakenly cross over into hostile territory. Every year, both countries arrest hundreds of fishermen for illegal intrusion. Fishermen complain that they don’t know whose side they are on because of the dispute.
(So what you are saying Ms Ayesha is that Indian security is hotwired in this region, and therefore given the action that Indian air security and naval coastal forces take against ordinary fishing vessels from Pakistan everyday, the lone hijacked trawler from Karachi Pakistan could not possibly have sailed gently into Indian waters without detection first)
Every time Pakistan and India decide to re-start their peace process, one of the first measures taken is the release of the poor fishermen, who are caught and detained, through no fault of their own, their boats confiscated upon arrest.
But somehow the trawler dodged all patrols and made it all the way to Mumbai. Regular procedure for boats and ships docking at Mumbai entails thorough checks, but it appears that the terrorist trawler was able to evade that as well.
(Because no trawler sailed from Karachi Pakistan to Mumbai India......false cover story from the Siv Sena Mumbai authorities.
The main perpetrators of the Mumbai terrorism were the Israelis in Nariman House, the Germans at the two hotels, and the RSS at the other locations. They were already in position in Mumbai on the 26th. Finally one alleged Pakistani, who looks more Indian to me than Pakistani, is produced after the fake incident, who sings the Indian hymn in perfect English of course.
The bodies of the 9 other "Terrorists" killed, and produced by the Mumbai authorities could be anyone...........in India huge numbers of people die from debt burden in the countryside, 100,000 each year......homicide 60,000 highest in the world.........roads accidents not sure 100,000 fatalities each year? You can pick 9 bodies from these, disfigure them beyond recognition and say they came from Pakistan)
Too many questions remain. Too few answers are being given. India and Pakistan have an equal interest in finding out who is behind this terrible mayhem that has clutched Mumbai. The investigation must be thorough and conducted without prematurely blaming any organization or country. India and Pakistan must root out all those who would like to see terror grip the region and derail peace processes, regardless of whether they are Hindu or Muslim.
