The jihad rages on ............. Atlas reader Hodium (who lives in India) wrote me that a series of 16 bombs went off in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad around 6:45 pm local time last night killing 45 people,
He wrote, "Reports were coming in that a prior email was sent to the media that a local group calling itself the Indian Mujahideen claimed responsibility for the attacks. Further, there were other bomb attacks of similar nature in the southern Indian city of Bangalore killing 38 .
Its been reported that the group has targeted the Bombay Stock Exchange here in Mumbai city,and security is very tight with police getting and boarding public buses checking passengers seats .
There is definitely a foreign had in this??? Especially the Pakistanis and Bangladeshis along with their Arab supporters.
India, Israel and the US must stand shoulder to shoulder and draw strength from one another to confront,combat and finally defeat this evil of Islamo-facism terror ."
G-d bless you David and the free people of India that are fighting the scourge of Islamic terror.

A live bomb was defused near a hospital and two cars stuffed with explosives were found in and around Surat, sparking a high security alert in the city.
UPDATE: Next door neighbor Pakistan surely has a hand:
“They are in many cases intentionally keeping you in the dark,” said the former CIA official who served in the region. The former official described one case in which a CIA agent near Waziristan, in the tribal area, pressed the ISI over several months to detain a Pakistani who appeared to be helping Al Qaeda operatives move safely around the region.“He was a known Al Qaeda associate and facilitator,” the former CIA officer said. “But you bring it up 10 times and they never take the first step of planning anything. It’s like pushing against a marshmallow.”
