Indian capital hit by explosions, 29,8 05

I must admit, when I read of the proximity of Mars this weekend I did think about any astrological influences it might exert...if you believe that sort of thing!

In astrological terms, Mars brings wars and rumours of wars.

According to old news stories, last time the two nations came close to war, could history be repeating itself?

This is what hebrew media is reporting:

  • The first explosion took place near the vegetable market in Paharganj


    (Photo: Yedioth Ahronoth News)

    in the heart of New Delhi, an area popular with foreign (and Israeli) tourists, at 5:40 PM when it was crowded with people busy shopping for Diwali (the Hindu festival of lights) shopping, killing eleven persons and injuring over 60 others
    (The Israeli embassy in New Delhi declared an emergency alert in the wake of the bombings, at least one Israeli tourist sustained light injuries in the blast.)


  • The second blast took place at South Delhi's Sarojini Nagar Market, which left 20 dead.

  • The third explosion took place in a bus in South Delhi's Okhla area, three people were killed



The Rediff website ( a leading Internet portal focussing on India and the global Indian community) said the blasts are suspected to be the handiwork of the banned Pakistan-based group Lashker-e-Toiba.

Just one problem you listed the last dates as 29/8/05 when in fact todays date is 29/10/05 that leaves out a coincidence.

Spelling of the name is incorrect it is Lashkar-e-Toiba
'Army of the Pure'. Note the a in place of the e in the first name.

Here is some info on the group

Lashkar-e-Toiba

Lashkar-e-Toiba or Lashker-e-Toiba

That's both fine with me. Hebrew alefbeth does not have vowels and I do not know whether indian alefbeths have them in a version equal to the christian alefbeth.


However, the Indian media spells Lashker-e-Toiba with an e


The Rediff-article reports the death toll raised to 50.

What sort of blasphemy is this?

Yes America might only have 300 million out of the 6.2billion, but they are everything!

Do they teach you nothing in School?
Everytime something goes wrong it is the terrorists, whenever anything goes well it is down to the United States - world over. When that child in China learns to count to 10, it never would have without the U.S.

Stalin and the U.S.S.R. used to almost say the exact same thing.

i say people have made assumptions like for example in opinions or editors who would explain as to why America was attacked after 9/11. and since then we have seen or expected to see dat Americans are attacked by Islamic extremists and dat we seem to be the main targets. but we should also know dat we are not the only ones to be attacked. other non-Americans have been attacked as well but the media seems to be concentrating only to the news of attacks on Americans.

I wouldn't be surprised if the ISI had something to do with this attack, they were also involved in the parliament bombing and one of their head guys had ties to the 9/11 hijackers.

The US says it doesn't ally itself with terrorist nations, yet for some reason we're allied with Pakistan. Even though the Pakistani government isn't even a legitimate one and is ruled by a military dictator.

Back in high school during a JSA conference I asked representative Jim McDermott why our country is allied with Pakistan even though there's evidence that the Pakistani government infiltrates terrorists into Kashmir. I mean, it doesn't make very much sense, especially after the tough talk coming from president Bush following 9/11. What he said really surprised me. He told me that the US needs Pakistan as an ally because Afghanistan borders it on one side and the Indian ocean borders it on the other. Afghanistan is a landlocked country and in order for us to get at their natural gas and oil (after having invaded their country and setting up a new government) we need to build a pipeline through Pakistan down to the Indian ocean. I think it's an interesting enough theory (and much closer to the truth than I expected), especially coming from a United States congressman.

And the US does not.
Pakistan is ruled by a military dictator that does not sponsor and/or support terrorists organizations and/or terrorists, whereas nations that have been labeled "terrorist nations", such as Syria, Iran, etc., have leaderships that do sponsor and support terrorist organizations and/or terrorists, again, such as Syria, Iran, etc.

That is your difference and that is why the US considers Pakistan an ally in the war on terrorism.

At least 58 were killed. The explosions occured just hours after India and Pakistan began talks on opening the border in Kashmir.


The Counterterrorism Blog: Bombings in New Delhi Kill Dozens - Walid Phares Comments (Updated)

AP story: Near-simultaneous explosions in three locations in New Delhi Saturday night, killing at least 58 people, hours after India and Pakistan began talks on opening border in disputed Kashmir to aid earthquake victims

High possibility that a Jihadi (either local Cashemire or al Qaida like) group will take responsibility in 24-48 hours...This note is sent with caution, as other leads are also followed.

On October 11, the US embassy in New Delhi warned American citizens of a "possible threat" of terrorist attacks, including suicide car bombings, against US interests in India, particularly "Hyderabad, New Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata."

So I guess "terrorist nations" are only the ones that openly sponsor terrorism. Which explains why we're still allied with Saudi Arabia...
