As we saw in a previous post here on Vlad linking to an article from The Ottawa Citizen the Muslim terrorists who attacked Mumbai and made special efforts to target Jewish people and institutions in India where trying to sour relations between Israel and India.
From a phone call to the terrorists who attacked the Jewish center..
The caller went on: “If the hostages are killed, it will spoil relations between India and Israel.”
Fortunately their logic is poor. The fastest way to unite a people is to attack them. So I was delighted to see this report from Pajama’s media about a planned rally of Hindu’s and Jews and other victims of Islamic terrorism for Washington DC Jan. 20th.
“The oldest traditions of the world, Hinduism and Judaism, are facing the biggest threat of our times in the form of Radical Islam. Today this problem threatens humanity itself. The brain washing of Islamic children with intolerant ideologies, is being funded by countries like Saudi Arabia and Iran. There is an urgent need to control the use of enormous oil revenues directed at efforts to Islamize the whole world.”
Israel and the Jewish people as well as India and the Hindu’s could of course educate the western world, most of who’s inhabitants often feel that history begins at the renaissance , as to how well Islam has acted as a neighbor and more often as oppressor. Nice to see India’s relations with Israel strengthened by the attacks even though that was entirely predictable.
After the attacks on Bombay in 2001 it took a year before tensions escalated between India and Pakistan before the US and Bush administration had to step in and defuse a nuclear Mexican stand off. It has only been a couple of months since the Mumbai attacks by the same actors, renegade perhaps but state actors for Pakistan. It is worth paying close attention to India as well as how the Obama Admin. will deal with it. The US of course will have to try and defuse the situation but the same method, getting Pakistan more onside with the war on terror, simply can’t work this time. Pakistan is both the source of regional terrorism and it’s greatest victim.
If anyone is aware of a historical situation similar to this one, please write about it in the comments section. Certainly Indian action against Pakistan would be as in the situation with Israel, a lose lose. Indian inaction also like Israel, means death by a thousand cuts.
