Some pictures of the terrorists
"Notice the red cord on his right wrist.
"Tying a red thread or cord around the wrist is a Hindu practice and it is unlikely a Muslim, especially one politicized enough to carry out an attack such as this, would observe it.
"I think this provides more evidence that this was a false flag operation or at least an attack by a non-Muslim group. For more information about the significance of the red thread see wikipedia and this blog post.
"Looks Indian, in his twenties. Looks like he's been to hell, brainwashed and back. Manchurian candidate.
"The LTTE have refined this art, and one wonders to what extent the RSS has some linkages with the LTTE.
(The LTTE are Sri Lanka's Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia / The RSS are the Hindu Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
"Whilst others mentioned seeing White males, blond with punk rock hairstyles.
From the Guardian:
"One police officer who encountered the gunmen as they entered the Jewish centre told the Guardian the attackers were "white" (all of them? How many of them), although this could mean they were paler-skinned Indians from the country's north.
"I went into the building late last night," he said. "I got a shock because they were white. I was expecting them to look like us. They fired three shots. I fired 10 back."
"In India the term white refers to people of European stock, and not to fair-skinned North Indians (Aryans).( the word Ghora..... which means white but also means foreigner from Europe........Firingi...old term, and numerous other words and terms). There are some blonds of Pakistani and Indian extraction, but highly unlikely that any of would have punk hairstyles.
It seems that was also the case with other sites, where people saw blond, white people posing as the attackers.
From the BBC:
"Then, the "foreign looking, fair skinned" men, as Mr Mishra remembers them, simply carried on killing."
"Locals say the orgy of killings in Mumbai began here. Three men walked into the cafe, drank beer, settled their bills and walked out. Then they fished out guns from their bags and began firing."
At the Leopald cafe.
"They did not look Indian, they looked foreign. One of them, I thought, had blonde hair. The other had a punkish hairstyle. They were neatly dressed," says Mr Amir."
"This is a foreign with Indian operation involving the RSS, elements of German?? operatives, Israeli or other Western mercenaries. It would be wonderful if some of these people were captured alive, so that the media could view them.
"If there is a cover-up, with Shiv Sena dominating Mumbai, and Hemant Kakare dead as head of the ATS, then the RSS element will be missing from the evidence, as will the German/Israeli/foreign presence.
"What will be left is some Muslim Indian, or even a Pakistani whose identity is fully revealed to the world."

Southern India, Sri Lanka terrorist groups
According to accounts by retired officials of the Israeli secret service, the Mossad, the Israelis were simultaneously training the Sri Lanka Army and the Tigers, and providing arms to each.
Victor Ostrovsky, author of By Way of Deception, told Indian Abroad news service in 1991 that the Tigers were trained in Israel in 1985.
"These groups kept coming and going. It was part of our routine job to take them to training camps and make sure that they were getting training worth what they paid for, not more and not less." The groups paid in cash.
Ostrovsky said that the arrangement for the training was made by the Mossad liaison in India, who lived there under a British passport.
A December 1983 Sunday Mail article reported that the Mossad was arming and training the Tigers, as well as the Sri Lankan Armed Forces.
One of the main figures involved in these operations, according to other reports, was Rafi Eytan, the former head of the Israeli intelligence agency LEKEM, which had been caught running spy Jonathan Pollard in the United States.
Following the 1985 scandal, Eytan was transferred to become the head of Israeli Chemical Industries, in which capacity he spent time in Sri Lanka.
The British Special Air Services (SAS) firm Keenie Meenie Services, was simultaneously training the Sri Lankan Army and the LTTE.
Known drug connections: The LTTE is believed to finance its weapons procurement through drug trafficking.
The LTTE is reported to be involved in trafficking heroin through Bombay, Turkey, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Canada, and the United States. In the early 1990s, over 600 cases involving Sri Lankan Tamil traffickers were reported to Interpol.
Sri Lankan foreign minister Lakshman Kadirgamar, a Tamil Christian, was bringing peace to Sri Lanka.
This was bad news for the arms dealers.
On 12 August 2005, Lakshman Kadirgamar was shot dead as he climbed out of the swimming pool at his luxury home.
SP Thamilselvan, leader of the Tamil Tigers’ political wing, denied that the Tigers were involved.
He suggested that elements of the majority Sinhalese might be responsible. “We know there are sections within the Sri Lankan armed forces operating with a hidden agenda to sabotage the ceasefire,” he said.
Arms dealers? Sri Lanka's arms dealers, 'a shadowy bunch of politicians, servicemen, bureaucrats and their relatives and friends, who conclude multi-million-dollar deals nearly every day pocketing hefty commissions' are the beneficiaries of trouble in Sri lanka.

According to Larouche:
"In the early 1970s, the LTTE (Tamil Tigers) began establishing training camps and secret arms caches under the cover of a chain of Refugee and Rehabilitation Farms of the Gandhian Society.
"Funds for the farms came from Oxfam (Oxford Famine Relief), one of the most powerful and secretive British intelligence organizations acting under non-governmental organization cover...
"John Glover, a British feature writer, wrote to the Western Mail in Wales about the ongoing and future training programs for Tamil youth by British mercenaries.
"A band of mercenary soldiers recruited in South Wales is training a Tamil army to fight for a separate state in Sri Lanka. About 20 mercenaries were signed up after a meeting in Cardiff and have spent the last two months in southern India preparing a secret army to fight the majority Sinhalas, in the cause of a separate Tamil state in Sri Lanka," he said...
"According to accounts by retired officials of the Israeli secret service, the Mossad, the Israelis were simultaneously training the Sri Lanka Army and the Tigers, and providing arms to each.

"According to intelligence reports, most of the arms used by the LTTE are purchased from Singapore, India, Afghanistan, and the Mideast.
"In 1987, the Hindustan Times reported that large quantities of arms with Pakistani and Israeli markings were seized by the Indian Peacekeeping Force in Jaffna from the LTTE.
"In 1989, according to a Sri Lankan government secretary, the LTTE was receiving armaments directly from the Sri Lankan government of President Ranasinghe Premadasa, who wanted to force the expulsion of the Indian Peacekeeping Force from Sri Lanka, and who was also using the LTTE to wipe out the JVP (People's Liberation Front) Sinhala insurgency...
"The LTTE reportedly has bought Russian-made Strela anti-aircraft missiles from Belgian arms dealers."
Rajiv Gandhi, Prime Minister of India, was killed in 1991 by the Sri Lankan Tamil Tigers -Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam
Justice Jain's final investigated the conspiracy to assassinate Gandhi.
He came across evidence that one suspect known as Chandraswami had links with the CIA and Mossad, and through them with the LTTE.
Justice Jain 'seems convinced' that Chandraswami was involved.
According to Asia Times:
Justice Jain 'has linked Chandraswami with the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) in which arms dealer Adnan Kashoggi, several terrorist groups, and intelligence outfits like the CIA and Mossad had accounts.
'The money in it was used for terrorist operations and political assassinations. The report is quoted as saying that $4 million of Mr Kashoggi's money was transferred to the LTTE's accounts. Justice Jain had said this on the basis of a 130-page document prepared by US Senator John Kiri.
'The commission quotes evidence of former cabinet secretary Zafar Saiffullah who said Chandraswami had links with Mossad and the CIA, and that the government had received intercepts of wireless communication between Israel (where Mossad is based) and Jaffna (where the LTTE was operating till recently) which established Chandraswami's involvement...
'Money transactions in Chandraswami's name and his links with international arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi and the now defunct Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) have made the commission point an accusing finger...'
In 1984, the LTTE rportedly massacred 62 Sinhalese civilians at Kent Farm and Dollar Farm.
Quote from a review by Sachi Sri Kantha of "By Way of Deception; The Making and Unmaking of a Mossad Officer", the famous book on the inner secrets of the Mossad by Victor Ostrovsky and Claire Hoy:
"Ostrovski's disclosures on the deals made by the military and political power-brokers of the ruling UNP and the Mossad had been published in excerpts in the Tamil Nation of Oct.15, 1990.
"What shocked the Sinhalese ruling establishment and the journalists (including the editor of Lanka Guardian, Mervyn de Silva) was the revelation of Ostrovski that Mossad had trained the Sinhalese military personnel and 'a group of Tamil guerrilla factions' simultaneously....
"Oh, and here's the good part. Israel trained the Sri Lankan resistance in the mid 1980's.
"The very first Tamil Tiger suicide attack was on July 5, 1987...
"The technique of suicide bombing ... was taught to the Sri Lankans in the mid 1980's..."

“At one point, I ran up to them and told them to use their weapons. I said, ‘Shoot them, they’re sitting ducks!’ but they just didn’t shoot back.” - Mumbai Witness: ‘Armed police would not fire back’
Former Pakistan Intelligence chief Hameed Gul has said that Mumbai incident is an international conspiracy to deprive Pakistan of its atomic power.
He said that the way the militants were able to enter the hotels and execute their plan, in an area dominated by 'extremist' Hindus like Bal Thakrey and Narender Modi, seemed impossible unless they had 'inside' help. - Mumbai mayhem conspiracy to hit nuke: Gul
