"Jaipur Serial Terror Attack on eve of May 14 Global demonstrations against
60 years of Zionist Israeli Ethnic Cleansing,
Apartheid, Genocide and Occupation of Palestine".
Once again the common Indians have become the victims of terror attacks and we condemn the apathy as well as complicity of the Indian state from protecting the masses. Our organizations are committed to exposing the politics of terror and in our analysis, the weapon of terrorism has replaced the 'politics of communal riots' in dividing, weakening and communalising the masses. Its very effective, more easier to organize and moreover no commission of inquiry will ever look into the matter. Thus the risks to the ruling elite are immense whilst the risks are minimal.
In our estimation the reprehensible serial terror attacks that occured in the streets of Jaipur today need to be analysed in the political context. They have occurred on the eve of major global demonstrations against the Zionist Apartheid State of Israel. Thus the news on the global media channels will be dominated by one more instance of "Muslim Terrorism" and far worse. The news regarding global opposition to Zionist Israel will be relegated to the inside pages. The breaking news on CNN, BBC etc will be "more Islamic terror in Jaipur....."
Interestingly the Mumbai serial train terror attacks of July 11, 2006 occured on the very same day that Israel launched its war on Lebanon. Thus this is the second glaring instance as to when a terror attack in India has proved to be very helpful to the cause of Israel in deflecting the attention of the International media.
It is basically the political timing and the beneficiaries that gives us the clues to the perpetrators of the attack.
Also consider the following terror attacks:
The terror attack on the Sankat Mochan Mandir in Varanasi (7th March 2006) occurred only 5 days after the largest demonstrations and protests against the visit of Pesident Bush to India on May 2, 2006. The level of protests by the Indian masses and the unity of the Hindu and Muslim masses that came out in their lakhs across the country was unprecedented in post-Independence India. It was for the first time that the Indian masses took to the streets, vehemently protesting against the shift in our foreign policy. It is extremely naive for anyone to believe that the attack on the Mandir was perpetrated by any Muslim organization, as it makes no political sense. The mother of the suppossed terrrorist who was killed in the subsequent encounter in Kanpur, stated that her son had been in Police custody since a year and she had no clue as to when her son was let out. The terror attack proved very useful to counter the growing unity of the Indian masses against US-Zionist imperialism.
The terror attacks in the park in Hyderabad (2007) were basically to counter the tense situation on the issue of the Indo-US Nuclear Deal, where the very longevity of the Congress led UPA government itself was at stake.
The Nanded incident where RSS-Bajrang Dal activists died whilst making bombs has been swept under the carpet by the government of Maharashtra as well as the media.
Even the fake attack on the RSS HQ in Nagpur has been dealt with in a similar manner.
Recently the attack on the RSS HQ at Teenkasi, Chennai is also a case in point. The Tamil Nadu police arrested RSS activists for enginerring the blasts.
Of course, all this news barely makes it to the channels and even if they do, they disappear in a day or two. This is in stark contrast to the coverage given in case the suspect is a Muslim. One can go on and on. The pity and the hypocricy of it all, is the duplicity and connivance of sections of the Indian State, the ruling dispensation at the Centre, the BJP-RSS and its affliates, the allies of the US-Israeli lobby, the police, our security apparatus and sections of the Corporate Media, wrongly referred to as the mainstream media. This is very similar to the situation that prevails within the USA, but it needs to be stated that we are still far away from being reduced to a dumbed down version that the US is. We are on our way there, but not if the anti-Imperialist Indian masses can help it and we know that we will finally defeat the forces that are the allies of the US-Zionist Empire.
Every terror attack only serves to:
Futher communalise the people. Hindus grow more and more wary and fear or rather detest the Muslims. It leads to further ghettoization and marginalization of the Muslim community.
The Muslim community becomes an increasingly easy target for the State, the police apparatus and the right-wing Hindutva forces.
Pushes the Indian people into the waiting arms of George Bush and Ehud Olmert, who thrive in promoting terror, wars and the Neoconservative oxmoron of "controlled chaos".
The Global War on Terror is an instrument for global US-Israeli-EU hegemony and is basically an instrument of foreign policy. "A war without borders and time against shadowy organizations with no central structure but spread in cells across the world". The world is now in a state of perpetual warfare.
The bogey of Al-Qaeda and Bin Laden is used with a dual purpose. Basically Bin Laden has been dead since December 2001 even according to the French DGSE. Al-Qaeda is nothing more than a covert US-Israeli-Saudi-Pakistani joint operation. Al Qaeda is basically the outsourcing of terror by the CIA-MOSSAD-MI6-ISI, the true axis of evil. Bin Laden is the ghost used to scare the world and his video threats pop-up at very convenient times for the Bush's and Musharraf's of the world.
More and more American people are realising that the 9/11-WTC attacks were planned, financed and executed by the US-Neoconservatives and by the Israelis. They are basically demanding an independent commission of inquiry to reopen the investigation and the Bush regime is refusing to do so. We wonder why!
The lies of the Bush junta are common knowledge, especially with the case of Iraq and now again on Iran. Why then is it that the Indian media is refusing to even begin questioning the absurdities od the 9/11-WTC attack and the entire flawed Global War on Terror which has proved to be a disaster for the world.
Our Basic demand is that the Government of India should insitute an Independent Commission of inquiry to investigate the terror attacks that are devouring the Indian people. The commission should comprise personalities of an impeccable and honest track record and we believe that we do have people with such credentials. Actually its time that the social movements take the initiative and that we ourselves constitue a People's Tribunal to investigate the terror attacks.
Our plea to the people is the following. The Indian people need to awaken to the scourge of terrorism. It has become the political and social challenge of our times. It is the new system of control of the Indian masses by the elite and we will have to stand together and fight this menace unitedly. None of the political leaders seem to be victims of the terror attacks, not even when the Indian Parliament was attacked! But we continue to die in Temples, Masjids, Churches, Gurdwaras and Buddhavihars. We continue to die in Buses, Trains and Taxis. We know that they lie, the media lies and so do our police.
We need to find the answers, but for that we need to start asking basic questions and challenge the paradigm within which our minds are forced to think or rather "not think".
We the members of the Awami Bharat and the Dalit-OBC Intellectual Forum have found the answers because we began to question and seek the truth independently of the politicians, the police and the media. All of the Indian people need to do the same.
This is in solidarity with all the ordinary Indian people who have been victims of communal riots and terror attacks.
