Just days before a psychopath (alone and belonging to no one, no group, just the twisted sickness of a legend in his own broken mind) murdered over seventy people in Norway, the city of Mumbai was attacked in a brutal jihad by Muslim extremists, again. Hear about that? Not so much.
But one crackpot who has been planning a slaughter in Norway (setting his plan in motion before 911) has become the rallying cry of the dhimmedia in service to the most radical and extreme ideology on the face of the earth.
Where is the same obsessive drive to determine the motivation and the manifesto behind the jihad? Where are the investigative reports on the imams and the mosques that teach, advance and prescribe violence? Where is the Woodward and Bernstein team to investigate what motivated a Muslim to gun down U.S. soldiers in Arkansas?
Where's the round the clock coverage of the Muslim Zazi, who plotted to blow up the NY subway system with the help of his father and his imam on the anniversary of 911? Where's the relentless outcry and handwringing over the ideology that attracts young Muslims in America to join Muslim armies in Somalia? Why are there no television specials on why Osama Bin Laden quoted allah and koran extensively? What manifesto incited four Muslims in a jihad plot to bomb NYC synagogues and shoot down military planes with stinger missiles?
Where is the pained outcry over Fort Hood jihadi Major Hasan and his powerpoint presentation on Islam and the jihadic doctrine? What motivated a Pentagon attack suspect back in June (a marine, no less) to plot to bomb the Department of Defense? Was it his religious Al Qaeda notebook? This same pious Muslim was found to be responsible for recent random shootings at military installations in and around DC. Diane Sawyer, call your office.
Did Brian Williams, who tried to smear Robert Spencer last night with this Norwegian nut, look deeply into the ideology and manifesto that motivated more than one imam who was found guilty of plotting to blow up the fuel tanks at JFK airport, which would have made 911 look like amateur hour?
Where is the NY Times in-depth investigation of who and what inspired 6 American Muslims (including two imams), who were charged with aiding the jihad by providing the Taliban "material support to a conspiracy to murder, maim and kidnap persons overseas, as well as conspiring to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization"?
Where is the probe on bomb-making classes in madrassas? Or Islamic belly bombs to beat airport security? Or brutal islamic "constitutions" in Bangladesh, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran (the world's most brutal nations)? Where is the media feeding frenzy on groups in the US plotting to overthrow the current system of governance and install "The United States of Islam"? Where are the headlines on the Muslim Brotherhood figure and former spokesman in the West's call to establish a global Islamic state? Where is the media outrage on the bible ban in Pakistan? What and who was responsible for the Chicago Muslim who was found guilty in a plot to blow up a Danish newspaper? Where was the killer media on the islamic leader who called for American Muslims to buy guns and start shooting people? Why isn't the media pounding on the manifesto that inspired Muslims' deadly attacks on Christian villages, leaving scores slaughtered and the village burned in Nigeria? Where is the WaPO and the NY Times front page splash on the Indonesian Muslims who planted a big bomb near a major church ahead of Easter?
CNN, why aren't you rabid in your pursuit to uncover what inspired the Muslim bomb plotters in the NYC synagogue attack, who were quoted as saying, “I hate Jews,” “I want to kill them”?
Believe me, folks, I could go on and on and on and on. This is just the last couple of months.
Where is the relentless pounding of the Islamic teachings that command jihad, ethnic cleansing, gender apartheid and hatred of non-Muslims? Where are the media exposes on the fatwa issued from the leading Islamic university, Al Azhar in Cairo, calling for the death of apostates, hypocrites and blasphemers?
No. The crime, ladies and gentlemen, is reporting these acts of war on the west. Guilty as charged.
Red Alert: Multiple Explosions in Mumbai Stratfor July 13, 2011
Three explosions were reported in Mumbai on July 13 in the crowded Opera House, Zaveri Bazaar and Dadar areas of the city. The explosions began around 7:10 p.m. and occurred within minutes of each other. There are reports that a fourth bomb, likely at the Roxy Theater, failed to detonate. Current casualty estimates indicate five people have been killed and 100 injured thus far.
This marks the first major attack in India since the November 2008 Mumbai attacks. Though the magnitude of these attacks has yet to be determined, this attack does not appear to be as sophisticated as the 2008 attacks, which involved an assault team consisting of a number of militants that coordinated 10 shooting and bombing attacks across the city. The July 13 attack, by contrast, appears to have not involved suicide attackers but consisted of explosives placed in a taxi, a meter box and locations where they could be remotely detonated. This tactic is much more in line with those used by more amateurish groups, such the Indian Mujahideen, who have targeted crowded urban areas before.
Nonetheless, the attack comes at a critical juncture in U.S.-Pakistani relations as the United States is trying to accelerate a withdrawal of its military forces in Afghanistan. The 2008 Mumbai attacks revealed the extent to which traditional Pakistan-based Islamist militant groups, such as elements from the defunct Lashkar-e-Taiba, had collaborated with transnational jihadist elements like al Qaeda in trying to instigate a crisis between Islamabad and New Delhi. Such a crisis would complicate U.S.-Pakistani dealings on Afghanistan, potentially serving the interests of al Qaeda as well as factions within Pakistan trying to derail a negotiation between the United States and Pakistan.
UPDATE: Zilla has more -- Terror Strikes Mumbai
UPDATE: More reported dead.
Three near-simultaneous explosions have shaken India's commercial capital Mumbai (Bombay), police say.
Seventeen people were killed and 81 injured, said Maharashtra state's chief minister Prithviraj Chavan.
He called the explosions, during Mumbai's busy evening rush-hour, "a co-ordinated attack by terrorists".
One explosion was reported in the Zaveri Bazaar, another in the Opera House business district and a third in Dadar district in the city centre.
Police sources were reported as saying the explosions were caused by home-made bombs.
The attacks are the worst in Mumbai since November 2008 when 10 gunmen launched a three-day co-ordinated raid in which 166 people were killed.
