Consul General of Israel Hon. Ido Aharoni, Consul General of India, Hon. Dnyaneshwar Mulay, Jagdish Sewhani, Mr. David Harris, Shira Loewenberg of AJC, Dr. Uma Mysorekar and Shira Loewenberg stressed the need for India, Israel & America to join forces to fight terror.
The 11/26 attack in Mumbai has been the most brutal since the 9/11 attack in New York. Five years after the Mumbai attacks, Lashkar-e-Taiba is stronger than ever. Pakistan’s military and its spy agency ISI use this terrorist organization against India according to Bruce Reidel, the fomer CIA counter terrorism expert. He has also revealed that the intention behind this insidious plan was to trigger a war between nuclear India and Pakistan.
Mr. Sewhani further said that in the arc extending from Cairo to Jakarta, India and Israel are the beacons of democracy. These two democratic countries, along with the USA, are under constant threat by terrorists. Hence, it is the moral duty of the most powerful democracy in the world, America, India and Israel to join hands to fight the onslaught by those whose mannerisms are incompatible with the spirit of 21st Century.
India, Israel and America have been the victims of terrorism for several years–we are natural allies. I believe that if these three countries, along with other victims of terror join hands together we can definitely quash the vicious designs of these religious bigots, concluded Mr. Sewhani.
