    "actually mr. lincoln, the indian press came right out and said the bomb may have been intended for chabad house--no paranoia whatsoever. " = anand Twaddle. The Indian press noted that the Chabad house was nearby, though for example the Hindustani Times and Times of India disagreed by hundreds of meters over how close. They also noted that a tourist attraction Ashram was near by. The also stated that the bomb had been left in a pack on the floor of the Bakery. So if it was intended for the Chabad House they bomber flunked target recognition. The statements in the Israeli press announcing that the police had stated that the Chabad House was the probable target were pure paranoia at work. The struggle between Islamic terrorism, the ISI, Pakistan, and India has little to do, if anything, with Jews. (I doubt if many can name Lt. Gen. J.F.R. Jacob, or why I brought him up, can you?) Israel is not central to the current terrorism problem in India. It isn't even a side show.
