Jaycee Lee Dugard Lived In Britain

jaycee-tabloid-bingoJAYCEE Lee Dugard – Anorak’s look at Jaycee Dugard in the news: With Baby P, Madeleine McCann, Shannon Matthews, 9/11, Afghanistan, War on Terror, Mumbai Massacre, the Asian tsunami and Sue Carroll…

Lest you think the story of Jaycee Dugard is not relevant to you, dear Britisher, that you are just gawping at suffering and sensation, Sue Carroll sets you straight, and engages in a rich game of Tabolid Bingo. See how many stories you can spot being linked to Our Jaycee:

Daily Mirror: “Who’s to say there isn’t a Jaycee Lee Dugard in Britain?”

How ironic that during Jaycee’s incarceration the world has witnessed terrorist atrocities, disasters and war but missed completely the cruelty inflicted on an innocent little girl locked away in a paedophile’s suburban backyard.

9/11. Mumbai. Tsunami. Iraq. Bing…. Wait for it. Sue Carroll has more:

We know enough about the death of Baby P to recognise no stone must be left unturned when a child’s life is in question.

No Pakistan Protest Against Mumbai Cartoons

IN the NY Times Thomas Friedman on Mumbai and cartoon protstors:

On Feb. 6, 2006, three Pakistanis died in Peshawar and Lahore during violent street protests against Danish cartoons that had satirized the Prophet Muhammad. More such mass protests followed weeks later. When Pakistanis and other Muslims are willing to take to the streets, even suffer death, to protest an insulting cartoon published in Denmark, is it fair to ask: Who in the Muslim world, who in Pakistan, is ready to take to the streets to protest the mass murders of real people, not cartoon characters, right next door in Mumbai?

After all, if 10 young Indians from a splinter wing of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party traveled by boat to Pakistan, shot up two hotels in Karachi and the central train station, killed at least 173 people, and then, for good measure, murdered the imam and his wife at a Saudi-financed mosque while they were cradling their 2-year-old son ˜ purely because they were Sunni Muslims ˜ where would we be today? The entire Muslim world would be aflame and in the streets.

The Indian Behind The Mumbai Attack

MORE Mumbai madness from the Associated Press’s Sam Dolnick in downtown new Delhi:

A Pakistani militant group apparently used an Indian operative as far back as 2007 to scout targets for the elaborate plot against India’s financial capital, authorities said Thursday, a blow to Indian officials who have blamed the deadly attacks entirely on Pakistani extremists.

What religion was this one Indian that presents such a blow to Indian officals whgoi blame Pakistanis? Dolnick does not care to say, or find out. And how is one traitor a blow? Dolnick does not care to say…

Maybe Ajmal Amir Kasav – not an Indian – can help them?

Nailing Mumbai Practitioners And Islam’s Ice-Cream Wars

SO who carried out the the attack on Mumbai? Terrorists..? Practitioners..? Builders…? Could be.

TOM Gross asks in the Wall Street Journal:

Why are so many prominent Western media reluctant to call the perpetrators terrorists? Why did Jon Snow, one of Britain’s most respected TV journalists, use the word “practitioners” when referring to the Mumbai terrorists? Was he perhaps confusing them with doctors? …

Meanwhile – perhaps even more disgracefully – a New York Times report on the last day of the siege stated: “It is not known if the Jewish center was strategically chosen, or if it was an accidental hostage scene.”

It was not known. We should take care not to venture into the realm of unknown knowns. And what of these practioners, these men with guns and intent to kill and maim?

On BBC Bias And Mumbai’s Victimised Muslims

MUMBAI. Whodunnit? Pretty clear, you’d think: Islamicist nutters. But the BBC is uncertain, as Rogier van Bakel notes:

Now, though, BBC News has outdone itself with an article about the Mumbai attacks entitled “The Age of ‘Celebrity Terrorism’.” The broadcaster’s respect for the esteemed prophet’s followers is so deep that every effort is made never to call a spade a spade (or a Muslim a Muslim, excepting positive mentions).

Pregnant Jews Out Of Kashmir And How The West Triggered Mumbai

SO why did a gang of lads kill and maim so many pople in Mumbai?

David Aaronovitch looks at how the victism are to blame:

There is a branch of apologetics – which I take crudely to be the belief that the crime is the fault of the victim – that assumes a milder form, and which I’ll call explanetics. So the explanatists’ view of the Mumbai massacres last week is that the cause lies in what concretely has been done to, or in the vicinity of, the young, cool-looking men with the grenades and the machineguns.

Roger L. Simon On The HuffPo Mumbai And Azam Amir Kasav


Of course it’s inconvenient for the smart set at the HuffPo to understand that Islamism isn’t all about George Bush, Iraq, etc., but stems from adhering to Eighth Century ideas conceived before there was even a Black Friday sale at Bergdorf’s. But so it goes.

Mumbai’s British Terrorists Engage In Citizen Journalism

“ARE they British?” asks the Telegraph, lens focused on an image of two on the men behind the Mumbai massacre?

“Gang used Blackberrys to monitor reaction in the British press.”

One wonders what press reaction the murderous expect? Are we to hear from their spokesman saying that the Daily Express has always been dead set against them and that the Sun’s Page 3 “News in Briefs” is Islamophobic?

“How can the Daily Mail lead with news of Damian Green?” asks an incredulous mass murderer. “What the f*** is the world coming to?”

Roots Of The Deccan Mujahideen

LENIN’s Tomb looks at the Mumbai massacre:

Whoever the ‘Deccan Mujahideen’ turn out to be, Jason Burke argues that the signs point to them being a home-grown movement. This means that any attempt to comprehend what is happening has to start with the Indian social structure, and particularly the position of Muslims in Indian society. So, let’s stick with the obvious. Indian Muslims, comprising 13.5% of the population of India, are poor and disenfranchised: under-represented in most official organs, among the most exploited layers of society, and vulnerable to chauvanistic attack by Hindu nationalists. Their status as an insecure minority within a Hindu-majority state is one of the deadliest issues in Indian politics.

There’s more, althogh no mention of the Jewish centre…

Collateral damage: England cricket tour jeopardised by Mumbai terror attacks

As a result of the terror attacks in Mumbai, England have postponed their (already meaningless) last two one-day internationals against India. Fair enough.

More seriously perhaps, the Test series between the two nations is under threat. The second Test was scheduled to take place in Mumbai from 19 December, but there’s every chance that England will fly home without playing any more cricket.
