I got the following link in a posting on India-gii (hat tip: Iqbal) on the Islamic terror in Mumbai past November. Click on this link at Atlas Shrugs only if you have a strong stomach because the pictures are disturbing. The title of the post — “THIS IS A STRUGGLE BETWEEN ISLAM AND UNBELIEVERS, WE ARE THE PEOPLE GOD HAS CHOSEN TO DEFEND AGAINST THE UNBELIEVERS” — is as stark as the images of the dead bodies of the innocents murdered in accordance with the religious duty of jihad.
The average resident of Mumbai, evidently, could not be bothered by all the carnage. In Mumbai, most of the people did not even vote in the general elections of a few months ago. And those who did vote, decided to elect that party which is likely to not punish the guilty. It is hard to avoid the feeling that in some sense perhaps they do bring such slaughter upon their own heads willingly. But then you read this:
One witness at the railway station: “There was a baby. His mother was still alive next to him. The baby started to cry so the mother picked him up, and was shot dead.”
The CST railway station after jihad (52 killed, 100 injured)
And reading that makes you reconsider and realize that no matter how insanely stupid the unbelievers are, they do not deserve to be killed so ruthlessly.
The untold story of 2008’s terrorist attack on the Indian city of Mumbai. The story is told in the words of its victims and the gunmen. Produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker Dan Reed, Terror in Mumbai tells the story of what happened when 10 gunmen held one of the world’s busiest cities hostage; killing and wounding hundreds of people while holding India’s crack security forces at bay.
I cannot afford to watch those videos.
