David Headley revelations will lead to nothing for India because Pakistan is a Somalia in our neighbourhood

Three things are absolutely certain: Pakistan and its ISI will be implicated; Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, his Pakistan military and ISI interlocutors will be named, and the details of the conspiracy and its roll-out will be spelled out. To summarise, Headley’s deposition from his US jail, where he is serving a 35 year term, will clearly establish that it was indeed Pakistan, and not some non-State rogues, that had unleashed terror in Mumbai. #India #Islamic terrorism #Pakistan #ISI #InMyOpinion #LeT #Indo-Pak #Anti-Terrorism

Sudanese migrant stabs Israeli soldier, is shot dead - police | Reuters

JERUSALEM A Sudanese migrant in Israel stabbed and wounded a soldier in an apparent act of solidarity with Palestinians and was shot dead, police said. If that motive is confirmed, it would be the first such attack by a foreigner during a four-month-old surge of Palestinian street violence fuelled in part by Muslim anger at perceived Jewish encroachment on a contested Jerusalem shrine. #Islam #Israel #Crime #Argentina #Latin America #opinion
