terror in delhi 10/29
Tuesday, November 08, 2005
  Lashkar terror suspects arrested Down Under The terrorist group Lashkar-e-Toiba, the prime suspect in the October 29th Delhi attacks, which shed crocodile tears has now been linked to a massive crackdown by the Australian security services. Australia's Daily Telegraph has more:

ALARM bells will be ringing in Australia's spy community over suggestions the latest terror alert to sweep Sydney is linked to an organisation called Lashkar-e-Toiba.

One of two men plotting an attack on Sydney – under 24-hour police surveillance – is said to have connections with the Pakistan-based terror group.

Which begs the question: Why would a paramilitary outfit formed to wage guerilla war on the Indian border to wrest control of Kashmir in the late 1980s be interested in a genocide of Australians nearly 11,000km away?

Actually as we mentioned before, Lashkar's aim is to take control of the entire Indian sub-continent into an Islamic Empire. It has very close links with Al-Queda.

That is because LET has developed into the most potent incubator of what Western governments – including Australia – most fear: The home-grown bomber.

With the rush of young volunteers to join the global "jihad" or holy war after the September 11 attacks on the US, LET emerged as a major target of anti-terror operations.

But as with much of the war on terror, history's hand got in the way. When LET first formed, it did so with the full financial, logistic and strategic backing of the Pakistani army.

Then, its name – literally translated as "Army of the Pure" – reflected its singular objective: To terrorise Kashmir into Pakistani hands.

Paramilitary training camps sprouted up throughout the Himalayas teaching recruits the dark arts of terror including guerilla fighting, bomb-making and urban terror tactics.

Working hand-in-glove with Pakistani intelligence and its military, LET's commanders forged close ties with another terror group waging battle nearby, Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda network.

The two groups began sharing intelligence, weapons and training.

By 1998, LET had joined bin Laden's global jihad on the West.

To summarize, LeT acts hand in glove with the Pakistani military and the ISI.

The daily ritual would end with a giant Muslim service as 3000 "brothers" prayed for Allah's will before beginning their work: Training to kill Westerners and non-believers on a mass scale.

Intelligence chiefs believe dozens of Australians may have trained in such camps since 9/11.

Indian security chiefs blamed LET for last month's atrocities that killed 59 people and wounded 210 – a claim that gained weight when a militant group linked to it – Islamic Inquilab Mahaz – claimed responsibility.

Now authorities believe LET has firm connections with would-be terrorists in Sydney.

But, as chilling as that sounds, it would be wrong to focus entirely on this one organisation. As the July 7 London bombings showed, today's urban assassins can join together from any or no terror organisation.

Yes, it is not wise to concentrate on the wrong organization. The common element between London 7/7/, Delhi 10/29 and the now arrested terrorist suspects in Australia is that all of them trained in terrorist camps in Pakistan abetted by the Pakistani military and its intelligence service. Once trained in the virulent Islamist ideology and terror tactics in one of Pakistan's 30, 000 madrassahs, these jihadists have the capability to form independent cells. To paraphrase Dr. Victor Davis Hanson, civilized countries should come together and force General Musharraf to shutdown these camps. If the wily general is still ambivalent, these nations should do the job by themselves.

The Australian has a similar report.
