GLOBAL JIHAD has become important part in Pakistani Islamist discourse

By Nagesh Bhushan Latest report released by CSIS under the heading "CURRENTS AND CROSS CURRENTS of RADICAL ISLAMISM " which Analyzed Radical Islamism, says the state of Pakistan and it's intelligence apparatus ISI ,continues to fund terrorist organization Lashkar -e-Tyba and also notes that idea of Global jihad is prevalent in Pakistani circles . In in its 32 page report examining the radical Islamism around the world said " Global radicalism continued to be shaped by the deepening insurgency in Iraq, in which radical Islamists from inside and outside that country play a pivotal role. In the months following the Berlin meeting, the bombing of the London Underground, the attacks in Sharm el-Sheikh and Amman, and a stream of revelations about radical Islamist activity from Europe to the Middle East to South Asia and Australia — where a group of conspirators were arrested for plotting an attack against that country’s sole nuclear facility — had also to be taken into

Rohatyn's Suez Booted Out of Argentina

by Cynthia R. Rush Any American who wants a glimpse of what kind of "infrastructure development" fascist Felix Rohatyn has in mind for the United States, should take a hard look at what just happened in Argentina. On March 21, President Néstor Kirchner signed a decree rescinding his government's contract with the French utility giant, Suez Lyonnaise des Eaux-Dumez, charging them with breach of contract and negligence. From 2001 to 2004, Lazard Frère banker Felix Rohatyn sat on the Board of Directors and the Audit Committee of the Suez Group, which oversaw the utility's operations. Suez, the majority stockholder in Aguas Argentinas (AASA), failed to invest in vital infrastructure, Kirchner explained the next day, and much of the water it provided to 10 million people in metropolitan Buenos Aires, was contaminated with unacceptably high concentrations of nitrates. Aguas Argentinas even included warnings on its bills to customers, that children shouldn't drink tap

Private Armies, Captive People

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. March 21, 2006 In 2001 the Cheney-directed government of President George W. Bush, Jr., seized the opportunity created by the terrifying moment of the September 11th destruction of the World Trade Center buildings, to push through an attempted copy of the form of dictatorship which was given to the Adolf Hitler regime through Hermann Göring's organization of the burning of the German parliament, the Reichstag. The attempt was led by Vice-President Dick Cheney, on the same evening as that attack, to introduce forms of dictatorship which had been prepared in advance of that terrifying incident (see LaRouche January 2001 warning). These measures did not date from the January 2001 inauguration of George W. Bush, Jr., as President. This represented measures already underway in 1991, from the office of then Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney, under President George H.W. Bush. Cheney was not fully successful in the proposals presented on the evening of Septembe

Russia Embarks on Its Global Nuclear Power Plans

by Marsha Freeman In a series of national and international meetings in mid-March, the Russian government put forward its concrete plans to lead the global renaissance in the construction of new civilian nuclear power plants. Recent personnel changes in Rosatom, the Russian nuclear agency, are designed to position Russia as a major exporter of nuclear plants, which will help finance the construction up to 40 new domestic nuclear plants over the next 20 years. Russia's current chairmanship of the Group of 8 industrial nations positions it to lead the nuclear revival internationally. On March 15-16, the energy ministers of the G-8 nations met in Moscow, to formulate proposals to be adopted by the G-8 heads of state, scheduled to meet in July in St. Petersburg. Two days earlier, an extraordinary meeting took place at the Kremlin, to mobilize Russia's domestic nuclear industry and establishment to meet the challenge. In addition to President Vladimir Putin and nuclear officials,

India: Tamil Nadu Gets Nuclear Desalination

by Ramtanu Maitra One of the hottest subjects in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu is drinking water. The economically flourishing Tamil Nadu is confronted with a perpetual water shortage. The only solution is widespread desalination of sea water, and a leading Tamil Nadu politician and former Chief Minister, J. Jayalalitha, has made desalination her political trademark in the state. She has accused the national government in New Delhi of sabotaging her plans to set up more desalination plants. Although Tamil Nadu has forced through initiatives to meet its water shortage through desalination of brackish and sea water, the fact remains, that the entire nation of India is facing a water crisis. India, which had enough drinking water for its people in 1951 at 5,177 cubic meters per person per year, is becoming a water-deficient country. In 2003, the country had a 25% deficit, at a rate of 1,500 cubic meters per person per year. The deficit is projected to rise to 33% by 2025, unle

War Against Iran Is British Policy

LaRouche on Iran Radio: This is a transcript of a taped interview with Lyndon LaRouche, conducted March 15, 2006, by Morteza Jabbari of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) English Radio in Tehran. IRIB is the state-owned radio and TV broadcasting network. Q: In one of your previous interviews, you mentioned that London is behind the idea of a possible strike on Iran. What is the basis of your argument? LaRouche: Well, first of all, the policy is a British policy, which certain people in the United States are connected to. For example, take the case of Dick Cheney, the Vice President. The Vice President is very close to Liz Symons, to whom he was introduced by his own wife, Lynne Cheney. And during the period, for example, between the time he was head of the Defense Department, under George Bush the First, and the time that he became the Vice President—and the acting president, practically—he negotiated certain contracts. So, the Liberal Imperialist crowd in London, w

Libya's Return on Intelligence

In December 2003, Libya came in from the cold. Months of discussions with British, and later American, officials led to Libya's public declaration that it would abandon its nuclear and chemical weapons programs. Washington and London hoped to use Tripoli's announcement as an example of the benefits of publicly ending chemical and nuclear weapons programs in other states. North Korea and Iran, however, were not convinced. [See: "Libya Welcomes Weapons Inspectors in Return for Normalized Relations"] The timing of Libya's thawing could not have been better for Tripoli. The increased energy demand from the emerging Asian economies, geopolitical uncertainty in other oil-producing states, and the approaching maturity of Middle Eastern oil reserves have increased the value of Libya's untapped energy reserves. [See: "The Increasing Importance of African Oil"] Nevertheless, Libya's re-entry into the West's arms does not guarantee its path to stabili

China considers establishing rail link with Pakistan through Kashgar

http://www.pakistanlink.com/ Headlines/Apr06/03/10.htm News URUMQI, April 03 : Ismail Tiliwaldi, governor of the Xinjiang Uyger autonomous region of China said his government will consider establishing rail link with Pakistan to expand the avenues of bilateral cooperation in socio-economic sectors. "We will soon hold a feasibility study to find out possibilities of operating rail network between the two brotherly countries through Kashgir, he said during his meeting held with the visiting delegation of Pakistan Muslim League (PML), led by Senator Mushahid Hussain Sayed. China, particularly its western region (Xinjiang) attaches great importance to its decades' old traditional alliance with Pakistan and wished to have greater interaction to strengthen their mutually beneficial cooperative partnership, he added. The two sides agreed that the Western region has rich potential to emerge as hub of Sino-Pak business activities, with further development of road, rail and air netwo

Why Indian intellectuals are toeing anti-hindu line ?

Intelligence circles in India are taking a closer look at why "Many Indian intellectuals are toeing the anti-Hindu line ". An answer was given to IntelliBriefs by a source close to Intelligence community who is closely watching the events and individuals in action . He says these individuals are after jobs in western academia , but some of these are more than just practicing hindus when they go to their home , " they will follow strict rituals in their homes" said the source . Some of them are supposed to be on payrolls of Pakistani ISI . This source who was tasked to monitor all individuals by some agencies said by doing this , "will get ptronage and jobs from Western academics" . This was a major reason why Indian intellectuals in the U.S., especially humanities graduate students lined up behind Witzel of Harvard University , he said . They thought that his influence will get them jobs and money ,however the truth is " these departments and Wit

SONIA GANDHI : Yesterday once more-- Sacrifice II

The most extraordianry statement in all this is: "She even had submitted a list of 340 signatures of MPs on their respective letterheads proposing her name. One of those letters was signed by Sonia Gandhi as an MP proposing herself!" And: "She also had demanded that 3,000 persons be invited to witness the oath-taking ceremony and that it be held on the lawns of the Rashtrapati Bhavan. Such was the atmosphere till 3.30 p.m. on May 17. Is this the behaviour of a sacrificing angel?" No one goes into politics without wanting power. Politics is about power. One can serve the people without going into politics, if that is all one wants to do. President Kalam, having once been burnt dissolving the Bihar Assembly, would be twice shy about signing the ordinance. By this, having twice disappointed her, he has probably earned her eternal wrath. N.S. Rajaram

BALOCHISTAN : Civil war in Pakistan in full swing

Source: Newyork Times By CARLOTTA GALL NY TIMES DERA BUGTI, Pakistan — Explosions at gas pipelines and railroad tracks are common in this remote desert region. Now, roadside bombs and artillery shells are, too. More than 100 civilians have been killed in recent months, along with dozens of government security forces, local residents and Pakistan's Human Rights Commission say. This is the other front of Pakistan's widening civil unrest, not the tribal areas along the Afghan border where the United States would like the government to press a campaign against Islamic militants, but the restive province of Baluchistan, home to an intensifying insurgency. It is here, say local leaders and opposition politicians, that Pakistan, an important ally in the United States' campaign against terrorism, has diverted troops from the fight against Al Qaeda and the Taliban to settle old scores as it seeks to develop the region's valuable oil and gas reserves. One visit makes it

Dr S P Mookerjee, a fearless Hindu nationalist

www.newstodaynet.com/2006...103ss1.htm Dr Shyama Prasad Mookerjee (1901-1953) was a great scholar, an ardent Hindu nationalist and an outspoken Parliamentarian. He was born on 6 July, 1901 in a Brahmin family with a very high social standing in Bengal. From his parents Sri Asutosh Mukerjee and Jogmaya Devi, Dr Shyama Prasad Mookerjee inherited a splendid saga of erudite scholarship and fervent nationalism. Both of them inspired him to live a pure, dedicated, selfless, totally fearless and manly life. His father who was perhaps the most distinguished Vice-Chancellor of Calcutta University gave him the following message early in his life: 'To have lived long does not necessarily imply the gathering of much wisdom and experience. A man who has pedalled 25,000 miles on a stationary bi-cycle has not circled the globe. He has only garnered weariness'. No wonder Dr Shyama Prasad Mookerjee packed into his short life of 52 years unsurpassed exertions and unremitting toil of several li
