While the American TV News is calling the terrorism in Mumbia as “India’s 9/11” and blaming radical Islamic terrorists as the culprits, some foreign news is beginning to trickle in with a different story: that perhaps the real culprits behind the terrorism where in fact Hindu and white extremists pretending to be Muslims, a classic false flag tactic.
In an article dated November 23, 2008, just a few days before the recent events in Mumbai, India police exposed how Hindu terrorists with close ties to the leading opposition party carried off a series of deadly bombings with the intent of blaming them on Muslims. From the Belfast Telegraph:
“India is in something of a state of shock after learning from official sources that its first Hindu terror cell may have carried out a series of deadly bombings that were initially blamed on militant Muslims. The revelation is forcing the country to consider some difficult questions.
At least 10 people have been arrested in connection with several bomb blasts in the Muslim-dominated town of Malegaon in the western state of Maharashtra in September, which left six people dead. But reports suggest that police believe the cell may also have carried out a number of previous attacks, including last year’s notorious bombing of a cross-border train en route to Pakistan, which killed 68 people. Among the alleged members of the cell are a serving army officer and a Hindu monk.”

And here is a more thorough examination of the incident:
Indian Police discover RSS Hindu Terror Cell which was pretending to be Muslims
With these recent revelations of Hindu violence being blamed on Muslims can we be so sure that India’s 9/11 was really the work of Muslims as the western media portrays? Here are just a few of the discrepancies with the Mumbai story that need to be highlighted.
A cameraman caught up in the melee in Mumbai caught this picture of a young terrorist wearing a nada chhadi bracelet on his wrist. These threads, consider auspicious, are given by Hindu priests as a symbol of protection in religious ceremonies, and would seem to be highly improbably attire for a hard core fanatical Muslim.
Also, there are reports the a number of the gunmen were white:
“”They did not look Indian, they looked foreign. One of them, I thought, had blonde hair. The other had a punkish hairstyle. They were neatly dressed.”– BBC
And, from the Guardian:
“One police officer who encountered the gunmen as they entered the Jewish centre told the Guardian the attackers were “white”, although this could mean they were paler-skinned Indians from the country’s north.
“I went into the building late last night,” he said. “I got a shock because they were white. I was expecting them to look like us. They fired three shots. I fired 10 back.” — Guardian
Another interesting angle that the U.S. media has been pushing is that the terrorists were after foreigners; however, If that were the case, why not attack the hotels with a preponderance of American, British and Israeli foreigners, hotels like the Hilton, Four Seasons and the Sheraton which are in Mumbai, instead of the India-owned ones like the Taj and the Oberoi. No wonder the incidence of foreign causalities were so small for the number of people killed that day.
It looks very much like a false flag event indeed. But, for what purpose? Cui Bono? Could it be because the Hindu Nationalist Party BJP has been using terrorism, especially Muslim-inspired terrorism, as part of the campaign strategy.
According to a Newsweek:
“The recent violence is a boon to the right-wing Hindu dominated Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Even before the latest violence, a series of blasts across the country claiming at least 200 lives this year had already helped the BJP, which has flagged terrorism as an issue in the campaign. Even as the security forces battled the terrorists holed in Mumbai, the BJP had begun to use the opportunity to point to a weak government “soft” on terrorism. Frontpage newspaper adverts in Delhi on Friday, the day before the city goes to the polls, said the incident shows that the ruling Congress-led government is “unwilling and incapable” of dealing with terrorism. BJP leaders on the stump seized the opportunity. “There’s an immediate reaction from people on the Mumbai siege, and the feedback has been very positive for the party,” said a senior BJP member in Delhi to the Times of India. “Our challenge will be to convert this outrage into votes for the BJP.”
The Mumbai attacks have given India’s Hindu right-wing opposition a boost ahead of upcoming elections.
Terrorism has been “Very positive for the party,” say the BJP party member. And it will be “very positive” too for the U.S. and Israel who have been supporting the right-wing Hindu party both militarily and financially over the years.
In the article India and Israel: an unholy alliance” by Faisal Kutty, a columnist for the Washington Report on Middle East Affair, he explains the close relationship between Israel and the Hindu-firsters.
“More recently, the two countries have moved quickly to develop cooperation in the economic, political, and military and intelligence areas. The burst of activity in these fields over the last few years is phenomenal.
Since 1992, the trade between the two countries has grown from $200 million to $1 billion and there are more than 150 joint ventures.
Israel´s two national air carriers, Zim and El- Al, are active throughout India. Zim has fifteen offices and El-Al operates three flights a week from Mumbai. Much of the economic activity evolved from a memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed in 1992 covering cooperation in trade, agriculture, solar energy, natural resources, tourism, and most importantly, research and development (read defense industry). During Singh´s recent visit, an Indo-Israeli Joint Commission was set up to advance cooperation in the economic, scientific, energy and cultural spheres.
In terms of military, a number of commentators expect that Israel will become the largest source of military hardware in the next few years. In addition to the millions of dollars in advanced equipment which India expects to purchase from Israel, India is also hoping to benefit from technical know-how from the Israeli defense industry, considered to be among the world´s best.”
Beside the boon in selling military hardware and surveillance equipment to India, Israel and the United States will also firmly hold a powerful influence in India politics should the BJP win in the upcoming election. And, by blaming Pakistan and Islamic terrorism for the recent events it will but pressure on India and its military to be used as another proxy army to fight the Israel’s enemies in the area.
“By way of deception we shall do war” is the Mossad’s operational motto, and I hope indians learn that their close connections to Israel can be their undoing. Unfortunately, we have learned that lesson all too well here in the United States.
India’s 9/11 indeed.
Mumbai: What Follows?
by Debs is Dead
lifted from a comment
Going on from what Giap wrote about State actors in many large ‘terrorist’ operations, it seems from where I sit that the states most likely to benefit from the action in Mumbai are USuk/BJPIndia/Israel.
The prez elect of America has given a firm commitment to move troops from Iraq where he imagines they are no longer needed, to Afghanistan where they are required, he claims. The problem is that the people America has declared war on the Pashtu, are spread across two nation states so war in Afghanistan of itself cannot truly subjugate these people and turn them away from the ancient culture into dumbed down consumerists.
Therefore USuk must wage war against those Pashtu who live in Pakistan as well but the Pakistani government stands ready and willing to do that themselves, repeatedly advising USuk that their presence on Pakistan soil is not required, not wanted and certainly not gonna be tolerated.
That dichotomy of belligerence could have worked with the BushCo administration who had no interest in the Pashtu other than shooting or bombing any head which appeared over the parapet, but Obama appears to want more.
As I said the total subjugation of the Pashtu seems to be the primary aim of the new American administration. Obama and his crew of washed up dem party hacks (on sale now – two wars for the price of one – highest bid not necessarily accepted – must check with AIPAC) have spoken about the need to take the war into Pakistan.
As shanks pointed out above if India moves all it’s forces up to the Pakistani border, Pakistan will have no choice other than to respond by moving the bulk of it’s forces down to the India/Pakistan border. If they don’t India will almost certainly launch so called ‘punitive raids’ into Pakistan killing Pakistani citizens.
So the Pakistani military war against the Pashtu will stop for the time being and that will create the perfect excuse for USuk to invade Pakistan from the north.
It will be presented to western eyes much as shanks is trying to present it comments here. That Pakistan would have some sort of a choice in whether or not they went eyeball to eyeball with the Indian forces on their Southern border. There could be no choice, if Pakistan fails to man their southern border sufficiently India who as one can see here is forever getting into boundary disputes with it’s neighbours, will at the very least re-kindle one of the many border disputes between the two nations claiming back some territory that they have previously agreed was Pakistan.
More likely the new BJP controlled government will decide Pakistan needs to be ‘punished’ for Mumbai. Read some of the comments in the piece shanks linked to and you will see a thirst for blood on the part of the usual loons, rednecks and crazies that every country has and which the BJP panders to.
If India mans up it’s border, Pakistan must do the same in which case Obama will have the perfect excuse (in his eyes and the eyes of the somnolent American people) to invade Pakistan.
If war is like chess and this particular conflict is playing out like a chess match, I would be interested to see what strategy Pakistan could construct where the Mumbai attacks were instigated by them and they benefited from the attacks.
I can’t think of one maybe someone else can.
There may be several intermediate steps in the invasion of Pakistan which I outlined above. The Pakistan strategists aren’t fools and they may be persuaded to try to spread their forces between the NW frontier and the Indian border. Or even attempt a counter strategy of not fronting down South.
If they don’t go South or even split their forces to cover both fronts, you can be sure that India will be receiving ‘advice’ from it’s new ally amerika, to initiate some conflict, perhaps to settle the Kashmir ‘problem once and for all, by moving the border further into Pakistan thereby cutting off the ‘terror supply line’.
If Pakistani forces do move South as conventional strategy suggests they will have to since the danger to the Pakistani state from an Indian invasion is far worse than anything the Pashtu who are basically just reacting to provocation, could cook up, then we can be sure that American special forces plus drones, will provoke the Pakistani Pashtu.
They will probably react, of course understanding the danger they may be disciplined enough not to do anything at first, but the provocations with be ramped up until the the Pashtu do hit back. Whereupon USuk have the ‘excuse’ to invade. Game over.

Hindutva and Zionism, Agents of Imperialism & Gandhi’s Death
What happened to the anti-imperialist anti-Zionist pro-Palestinian heritage of India? First, we might want to start with Gandhi. Towards the end of 1947, Gandhi made his statement, in response to a question by Doon Campbell of Reuters.
“It has become a problem which seems almost insoluble. If I were a Jew, I would tell them: ‘Do not be so silly as to resort to terrorism…’ The Jews should meet the Arabs, make friends with them and not depend on British aid or American aid, save what descends from Jehovah.”
It is interesting to note that Gandhi recognized the actions of the Zionists in the 1940s as “terrorism.” On January 31, 1948 barely months later, a man by the name Nathuram Godse shot Gandhi.
The ruling elite’s in India and Israel should be easily able to find common ground, since most of those elite seem to be racists and bigots.
From India’s caste system, with its degrees of ritual purity and of social status, from the Brahmans to the Untouchables to the Apartheid Jews only State of Israel, with their Rabbis who help formulate law to their version of the untouchables, the indigenous Palestinians, these two countries seem like a good fit for one another.
To help maintain their grip on power, they need “terrorists” incidents and other brazen acts to keep the people in a state of fear, crying out to the same ones who were behind those acts for help.
Israeli agents seemed particulary interested in getting their tentacles into India and Kashmir the year prior to 9/11.
To help set up the MOSSAD/CIA false-flag of 9/11?
(This is a lengthy article, so only part of it is copied here.)
Hindutva and Zionism, Agents of Imperialism
Meanwhile, politically the BJP has embraced Israel and turned a cold shoulder to the Palestinians, betraying the bonds of friendship shared by the Palestinian and Indian people in this process. Hindutva ideologues are talking about Hindu-Yahudi unity and the need to fight against ‘terrorism,’ a euphemism for Palestine’s and India’s Muslims. Hindu extremist websites gloat about the need to work together with Israel to target Muslims in South Asia. Recently a virulent organization calling itself “hinduunity.org” had its website shut down. It came back without a problem when the virulent Jewish extremist Kahane organization (Haktiva) came to the rescue. Rabid extremists working together for a common cause: Muslims are the targets, but also most importantly, the entire peoples of the Arab and Iranian nations, and the great masses of people in South Asia are targets for these two running dogs of American imperialism. Hindutvadis are happy to see such cooperation, while Israel murders Palestinians with impunity, and India reels under the Hindutva onslaught.
Israel has also been suspected of involvement in the incitement of virulent anti-Muslim activities in India, as has been pointed out by Faisal Kutty, a writer from Kerala state who noted that a meeting took place, shrouded in secrecy between BJP high officials and Israeli officials preceding a completely uncharacteristic violent communal anti-Muslim riot in the normally peaceful and harmonious state of Kerala in 1992.
Kerala’s Muslims are the oldest Muslim community in India, tracing their roots to the early Arab Muslim traders who plied the Indian Ocean Arabian Sea trade route. They make up 20 percent of the population in Kerala while Hindus are 60 percent and Christians 20 percent. Kerala has the highest rate of literacy in the country, in no small part due to the work of the ruling Communist Party over the last several decades to build a literate and thriving, secular state. Comparatively, the other South Indian states under the heel of chauvinistic ethnocentric parties have no comparable achievements. Faisal Kutty also notes that the first serious communal clash between Sri Lankan Tamil Hindus and Muslims occurred shortly after the opening of an Israeli interests section in the U.S. Embassy in Colombo. The section was later closed by the Sri Lankan government.
These suspicions cannot be unfounded because of similar reports about Israeli agents wandering in Kashmir as well as the BJP government’s fascination with ‘security cooperation,’ a code word for ‘how to keep the natives in line,’ and the overt statements made by Hindutva ideologues about “Hindu-Yahudi” unity. Recently the BJP has built close security ties with the U.S. and Israel under the guise of “fighting terrorism.” It is certain that this is a step towards turning India into a “security” state as both the U.S. and Israel will provide technological support in terms of arms, intelligence and who knows what else. This will most definitely be used in the BJP’s attack on India’s people, especially Muslims, Christians, Dalits, and anyone opposed to Hindutva, those they call with contempt, “pseudo-secularists.” The people of Kashmir will no doubt also be targeted by these new alliances, as well as Andhra, Punjab, Assam and the North East where militant struggles for human rights and freedom have continued for most of the half century following the British exit.
Organizations like the Bajrang Dal, a Hindutva version of the Storm Troopers, the same group who last year burned to death an elderly Australian missionary and his children, also find inspiration and who knows what else in Zionist Israel. The Indian Express, June 30, 2000 had an article titled “Desi Mossad is getting ready at Bajrang Dal’s Ayodhya camp.” It begins: “I, as a member of Bajrang Dal, swear in the name of Lord Hanuman to always remain prepared to protect my country, religion and culture,” 150 young men, between 15 and 21 years of age, recite in unison. On several occasions, the cadres and their leaders mention Israel and the Mossad as their inspiration.
‘Asked what he did at the camp, an activist whispers, “I am from the secret service of Bajrang Dal. Israel’s Mossad is my inspiration. I can’t tell you more.”
‘Dal leaders in their defence, cite example of Israel where all citizens have to undergo a mandatory training in physical fitness and arms handling. But, isn’t Israel’s geographical situation peculiar? “`India’s even worse. Israel has threat only from outsiders while India faces threat from even those inhabiting it,” Sharma replies.
These are words from people who frequently terrorize India’s Muslims and Christians. They are the paramilitary mobs of Hindutva, not boy scouts or martial artists.
In recent years Israeli “counter-terrorism” assistance is also being mobilized, most evidently in (though not restricted to) Jammu and Kashmir, where the government of India sees a political issue as a ‘security’ issue, in the age-old imperialistic tradition of ignoring the human, civil and political rights of the Kashmiri people while making every effort to suppress the voice of Kashmiris.10
The Times of India, Friday 22 September 2000 reports that
‘A high-level team of Israeli counter-terrorism experts is now touring Jammu and Kashmir and several other states in India at the invitation of Home Minister Lal Krishna Advani to make an assessment of New Delhi’s security needs, high-level government sources said.’
‘The Israeli team, headed by Eli Katzir of the Counter-Terrorism Combat Unit of the Prime Minister’s Office, includes a senior Israel Police commander and Israeli military intelligence officials. The team will prepare a “feasibility study” of Indian security needs and assess the areas in which Israel can offer assistance to New Delhi in tackling the activities of insurgent and terrorist groups.’
BJP’s corruption: money for nothing, and a few lousy Barak missiles, Hindutva Zionism in action.
In the short span of time that the BJP has been in power in Delhi, its claims of being patriotic and honest have been thrown in the dustbin. Earlier this year, a team of investigative journalists videotaped a series of bribe taking and bribe negotiating episodes involving people in the highest levels of government including the armed forces. Using a fictitious arms deal the team easily bribed its way into the offices of high-ranking Indian officials in the armed forces and the government. The ease with which it was possible to bribe these officials shocked the country. Imagine what levels of corruption might be possible when very efficient efforts at the same are carried out by international professional arms dealers, mercenaries and other organizations?
The most damaging episode in this was a videotaped recording of the leader of the BJP, yes, the party leader, taking a wad of money and also mentioning that he prefers dollars! Overnight, the BJP’s never ending charade of patriotism and honesty turned into outright guilt and defensive noises about ‘foreign conspiracy!’ As if the taking of bribes by the highest officials of the land especially for defense related deals, itself does not constitute treason and conspiracy of the highest order! These so-called ‘patriots’ of the BJP are willing to send Indian soldiers as cannon fodder to their stupid warmongering disasters, with equipment that is sub standard, and available only because the officials procuring them were bribed into doing so. Thus the so-called Barak missile found its way from Israel to India, while India’s own Trishul missile, which outperforms the Barak, got pushed out, perhaps because the Indian defense industries couldn’t match the Mossadis in bribery and intrigue!?
