India Rocked By Terrorist Explosions

Islamic terrorism appears to have visited India, a nation that has had traditional tensions with Muslims on and within its borders but has championed Palestinian cause, in the form of several bombings today. Reuters reports that more than 50 people have died in the attacks, and that the United States had issued a warning to its citizens in the country shortly beforehand about potential al-Qaeda attacks:

Three powerful bombs ripped through New Delhi markets packed with families and shoppers on Saturday ahead of the biggest Hindu and Muslim festivals of the year, killing over 50 people and wounding scores more. ...

At least 51 people were killed in the blasts which occurred within minutes of each other, said an aide to Delhi state Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit. Fifty-four people were injured, the aide said.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh declared it an act of terrorism, while adding it was too early to speculate who was responsible.

It may be early to assign blame, but an earlier warning from the American embassy seems too close to be coincidental. American and Indian authorities had chased a suspected AQ terrorist to India and had predicted attacks within days based on their intelligence. Since the Hindus have a religious holiday on Tuesday, it would appear that AQ wanted to make a big statement to the infidels.

Again, this shows that AQ and Islamism wants to control the entire subcontinent and recreate the medieval Caliphate -- and through that, control the world via the oil supply in the region. They do not want to just be "left in peace" -- they want the peace of Islam, meaning that they want to run the world as a theocracy in the mold of the Taliban.

These lunatics put themselves beyond understanding. The only understanding that will solve this problem will be the long-term strategy of denying them the desperate and the hopeless recruits that come from the oppressive tyrannies and kleptocracies in the region and spreading democracy. That's why Brent Scowcroft and his decades-long pursuit of stability diplomacy in the Middle East is terribly wrong and in fact created the sitution in which we find ourselves. We allowed massive oppression in the name of "stability" ever since we discovered cheap oil under Arab sands. All that has brought is misery and radicalism.

Scowcroft and his version of realpolitik have consigned themselves to the ashheap of history. Scowcroft just won't recognize it.

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin notes that Islamists continued their other tradition in terrorism, beheading infidels. This time, they set their sights on unarmed teenage Christian girls, targets apparently considered worthy of the level of courage found in the mujaheddin of Islam:

Three teenage Christian girls were beheaded and a fourth was seriously wounded in a savage attack on Saturday by unidentified assailants in the Indonesian province of Central Sulawesi.

The girls were among a group of students from a private Christian high school who were ambushed while walking through a cocoa plantation in Poso Kota subdistrict on their way to class, police Major Riky Naldo said.

I'm sure these big, brave men with knives must have quaked in their boots when squaring off against children such as these, given the craven nature of Islamofascists in general. Let's hear more about how we should offer our understanding for their cultural issues and feelings of hopelessness and negotiate for peace with such slime.

Islamofascists are cowards. They attack unarmed civilians precisely because they know they cannot succeed with their activity any other way. Anyone who would plan and carry out this kind of crime has no sense of humanity, honor, or worth. The only rational response is to find them and kill them before they attack more children for their sick and twisted motives.
