NEW YORK SEMINAR DISCUSSES ISLAMIC TERRORISM
Author: Narain Kataria
The following startling revelations were made by Dr. Paul L. Williams, a former FBI Consultant, a renowned Terrorism Expert, Chief Guest and a Keynote Speaker, at the Seminar titled “HOW TO COUNTER GLOBAL TERRORISM” organized by Indian American Intellectuals Forum (“Forum”), on December 4th, 2005 in New York City.
The next terrorist attack on the United States will be a nuclear event that is scheduled to take place simultaneously at seven sites throughout the country (New York, Washington, Miami, Houston, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Chicago). Bin Laden has been amassing nuclear weapons and materials since he was in the Sudan in 1992. In 1996, when he returned to Afghanistan, bin Laden made further purchases from the Chechens, including highly portable nukes that had been manufactured for the KGB. From 1996 to 1999, he made additional purchases from Russian and Ukrainian sources, including international arms dealer Semion Mogilevich. Mogilevich on one occasion provided bin Laden with fifteen kilos of highly enriched uranium at the bargain price of $70 million.
After Pakistan's successful testing on its atomic bombs beneath the scorched hills of the Balochistan desert, bin Laden and his al Qaeda associates began to work closely with scientists and technicians from the A. Q. Khan Research Facility, including Dr. Sultan Bashiruddin Mahmood (former Chairman of Pakistan's Atomic Energy Commission) and Dr. Chaudry Abdul Majid (Khan's chief engineer) to develop additional weapons, including tactical nukes that can be fired from recoilless rifles.
Since 1998, reports of bin Laden's nuclear arsenal have appeared in such leading international news outlets as BBC, The London Times, The Jerusalem Report, Al-Watan Al-Arabi, and Al-Majallah.
Mr. Jeffrey Epstein, President of the The Peoples Truth forum, a Connecticut-based organization, said that our job is to educate citizenry on the threat posed by Radical Islamofascism – not only to our national security but to our very existence as a culture. We are not political. In fact, our efforts are completely devoid of politics. We are simply committed to getting solid, fact-based, first source information out to the American people.
For many decades we here in the United States thought of terrorism as something that happened “overseas”. It was something that our border – two oceans and two “friendly” countries – shielded us from. We were being naïve.
Dr. Babu Suseelan, a Psychologists, from Pennsylvania, said that while the excuse industry promotes faulty root cause theories, Jihadi terrorists are engaged in kidnapping, gratuitous beheading, looting, killing, bombing, airline hijacking, suicide murder, car bombing, and gruesome murder of innocent infidels all over the world.
In a civilized world, we cannot function if we believe in phony explanations for Jihadi terrorism. Jihadi terrorists believe in a close dogma which is designed to exclude dialogue, outside input and forbids freethinking. “Their goal is to make the world as Dar-ul-Islam (Islamic nation) where Islam rules and the non-Muslim world as Dar-ul-Harab (the enemy country) that has to be conquered.
Prof. D. Bhattacharya of Columbia University, quoting widely from various sources said that it might not be an exaggeration to say that jihad has already begun in Bangladesh in all earnestness. He said Mr. Fazlur Rahman was one of the signatories (together with Osama Bin Laden and his second-in-command, Ayman Al Zawahiri as well as the chiefs of jihad movement in Pakistan, Egypt and Sudan), on the Declaration of War on America in 1998.
In order to protect Hindu-Buddhist-Christians in Bangladesh, it is imperative that a buffer non-Muslim State in Bangladesh bordering India and Myanmar be created on the lines of Israel and East Timor.
Earlier, welcoming the audience, Mr. Kataria, President of the Forum, said that the greatest danger to India’s stability and existence came from the rapidly increasing Muslim population. Tracing the History of India, Kataria said that the rise in the Muslim population was responsible for the Partition of India in 1947. Muslim population in India again is rising with leaps and bound. It is an irony of fate that there is no Uniform Civil Code for all Indians. It is also reported in media that Muslims do not believe in the concept of family planning. .
Informing the audience he said in the world there are around 1.2 billion Muslims. Out of which approximately 45% Muslim population lives in the Indian Continent. Giving further details, he said that there are 150 million Muslims in India, 140 million Muslim in Bangladesh and roughly same number in Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The rising Muslim population, if not checked, will have disastrous consequences and deleterious effects on the Indian polity. This is a frightening scenario.
Referring to Dr. Paul Williams, Kataria said that Terrorism Experts should also take note that almost entire Hindu-Sikh population comprising of 24% has been either driven out of Pakistan or converted to Islam.
Mr. Pabitra Chaudhary, Vice President of the Forum vividly described the pitiable plight of Bangladeshi Hindus. He said that two-third of the Hindu population in Bangladesh has been either driven out of Bangladesh or converted to Islam. “It is a matter of great regret that the world community has not been able to recognize the gravity of the situation in Bangladesh”, lamented Chaudhary.
Kataria and Arish Sahani, President and Senior Vice President, respectively, of the Forum conducted the proceedings of the Seminar. Mr. Venkat Sarma, one of the Directors of the Forum, presided over the function. Dr. Mukund Mody, Founder of Overseas Friends of BJP and a well-known community leader, thanked the audience.
