MUMBAI IN ISRAEL

As we watch the horror unfold, information just released indicates that the Muslim Terrorists rented rooms at the Chabad Nariman House, posing as Malaysian students. That would also entail smuggling in weapons, explosives, grenades for pre-positioning.
No doubt, the same technique was used to infiltrate the hotels. Then they could reconnoiter best entrances and exits.
Recall how long and difficult it was for the Indian Commandos to find the Terrorists? Many of the Police First Responders and the Commandos were killed in the ambush with interlocking fields of fire.
So, what have we learned from this massacre?
How many targets are now being prepared in America, England and Israel? We already know that Israel s Prime Minister Ehud Olmert (resigned but still in power) has been preparing the Jewish nation with a weakness that invites a "Mumbai" type operation.
The same is true in America and England. Each nation has a large population of Muslims dedicated to "Jihad" - holy war against "infidels" (non-Muslims). Each of the nations has acted the apologists for Islamic Terror. President George W. Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and the U.S. State Department has kicked the door wide open to every sleeper cell straight from the bowels of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, among other Arab Muslim nations.
In Israel, Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and President Shimon Peres have opened the cities of Israel so Muslims of the "Jihad" can smuggle in explosives, armaments and anything else that they may need for a "Mumbai" type operation but on a much larger scale.
In England large sections of London are too dangerous for the British Police to dare to enter. The streets are owned by hostile Muslim immigrants. The British government is intimidated, even to the point of considering the implementation of Sharia Law along with English law.
I wonder how many buildings in America, Britain and Israel are already warehousing tonnage of explosives and other armaments which are useful to a Muslim "Jihadist" coordinated operation as in Mumbai.
Every Intelligence organization in the West has been expecting an attack preceding a full scale uprising by Muslims, demanding that all nations adopt Islam as their religion. They understand that, even peaceful Muslims must rise to the call as commanded by Koranic law and Muhammad s Hadith.
When the Terrorists of Mumbai appeared to be only first coming in rubber dinghies from the Port, few expected that "Jihadists" had been sent ahead to stock up weapons and prepare to receive the main force.
What is of key importance may be that the organization of this multi-pronged attack on 10 sites indicates that there are probably many more than the 10 known Terrorists who were involved. Remember that 9 were killed and one was captured.
Carry that thought further and you find a culture driven by religious fanaticism now spreading around the planet with vast amounts of advanced weaponry vulnerable to theft, sale for huge funds or by blackmail.
They have no fear of dying since they believe that dying in the cause of killing "infidels" in a "Jihad" for Islam bring them immediately up to the courtyards of Allah with all the pleasures denied to them on earth - 72 virgins, rivers of honey and all that they wanted.
The infectious plague of Islam is far greater than such biological disasters such as weaponized anthrax, small pox, ebola since Terrorists would use their biological toxins to carry on their Bio-Terror - even if it kills them and their families also.
Mumbai was merely one contained Terror strike. All of that is presently incubating in the cities of the world. The enemy cannot be appeased or pacified because they are in it to the death - ours or theirs - it doesn t matter to them.
How then does civilization cope with a plague that comes into our cities on two legs, camouflaged with the words of "Peace"?
