India’s Singh Seeks Tougher Terrorism Law After Mumbai Attacks Nov. 30 (Bloomberg) — Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is seeking support for a crime-fighting agency modeled on the FBI and tougher laws against terrorism after the deadliest attacks in 15 years killed at least 195 in Mumbai, the financial capital. Singh called a meeting for today in New Delhi with all the political parties in Parliament to discuss the measures. In Washington yesterday, President George W. Bush pledged U.S. help to investigate the assault by 10 gunmen on the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower and Oberoi-Trident hotels, a Jewish center and restaurant. The 60-hour siege puts a spotlight on security in the Hindu-dominated nation, where about 300 people died this year in attacks on markets, mosques and theaters before the attacks in Mumbai that ended early yesterday. P.R.S. Oberoi, chairman of the Oberoi Group that owns one of the hotels, urged the government to let businesses defend themselves. “Their intention was to kill as many people as possible and do as much damage as possible,” Oberoi said of the terrorists. “It takes a long, long time for even one person to be armed. I wanted a security person for me, and it took nearly a year.” http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/newspid=20601087&sid=a3qjRfGh67VM&refer=home
KFAR CHABAD, Israel: Rabbi Gavriel Noach Holtzberg and his wife Rivkah had no fear when they embarked on their mission to open a Jewish center in the Indian city of Mumbai, her brother said Saturday night as relatives in Israel prepared to bury the couple slain in a three-day terror spree. The 29-year-old rabbi, a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen, and his 28-year-old Israeli wife were among nine killed in the center run by the ultra-orthodox Chabad-Lubavitch sect and nearly 200 dead in the 60-hour rampage by suspected Muslim militants. The carnage ended earlier Saturday. “She went with courage to this mission in India,” Rivkah’s brother Shmuel Rosenberg told The Associated Press after the end of the Jewish Sabbath. He described her as a strong, industrious and intelligent woman with a nuanced mind. “She had no fear,” and neither did her husband, he said. On the streets of Jerusalem, residents were aghast at the crime but all too accustomed to the pattern. “It was a horrendous and horrible perpetration of malice and barbarism,” said Michael Bregman, 42, of Jerusalem. But “it comes as no surprise” because militant groups have announced they are “going to target Jews wherever they are,” he added. http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2008/11/29/news/ML-Israel-India.php
