- "It is essential that we...strike and crush
Pakistanis, enemies of Jews and Zionism, by all disguised and secret plans."
-- David Ben Gurion, the first Israeli Prime Minister.
- Janes information group, the world's foremost source
on intelligence information, reported in July 2001 that "The Indian
spy agency RAW and the Israeli spy agency Mossad have created four new
agencies to infiltrate Pakistan to target important religious and military
personalities, journalists, judges, lawyers and bureaucrats. In addition,
bombs would be exploded in trains, railway stations, bridges, bus stations,
cinemas, hotels and mosques of rival Islamic sects to incite sectarianism."
- Pakistani intelligence agencies also said that RAW had
constituted a plan to lure Pakistani men between 20 and 30 years of age
to visit India so that they could be entrapped "in cases of fake
currency and subversion and then be coerced to spy for India."
- This was the high point of cementing an unholy alliance
which began much earlier and which continues to tighten its noose around
the neck of Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan and Central Asia.
- It appears that RAW and Mossad -- either singly or jointly,
either covertly or overtly -- have been making efforts to penetrate sensitive
circles of top echelon in Pakistan.
- It cannot be said with certainty but there are some reasons
to assume that Benazir Bhutto, the former prime minister of Pakistan, wittingly
or unwittingly, played in the hands of RAW-Mossad masterminds. She appointed
Rehman Malik as chief of the Federal Investigation Agency which then launched
a secret war against the Islamists; amounting to a direct attack on the
- War against religious extremists could have been a laudable
goal but it seemed to target only those elements which could have brought
a semblance of moderation to the religious swatch cutting across Pakistan
- Thus, leaving the field wide open for extremists.
- It seems that the Pakistani military was equally dismayed
by reports of FIA contacts with the Israeli secret service, the MOSSAD,
to investigate Islamist terrorists.
- One of the first acts of President Leghari after dismissing
Benazir Bhutto on November 5, 1996 was to imprison the Ghulam Asghar,
head of FIA, suspended on non-specified corruption charges. Rehman Malik,
Addl. Director General FIA, was also arrested.
- Whether these actions were triggered as a consequence
of plotting by RAW-Mossad planners or whether it was an entirely internal
matter, it is difficult to say.
- Bhutto s visit to India last year at a time when Pakistan
was going through one of the worst crises in its history, and her statements
there which aimed to undermine the whole foundation of Pakistan, generate
more than a flicker of doubt in analytic minds.
- The basic question arises: Who is Benazir Bhutto?
- Leaving BB to her own fate, let's return to RAW-Mossad
- What is clear right now is that Indian RAW and Israeli
Mossad are collaborating extensively to curb the freedom movement of Kashmir
and destabilize Pakistan.
- The Indian newspaper The Pioneer wrote on March 3, 2001:
Fencing of the Indo-Pak border is not enough. To check Pakistan-sponsored
cross-border terrorism, top security experts of Israel have suggested that
hi-tech gadgets ranging from an electronic barrier system of radars to
thermal imaging devices should be immediately installed on India's sensitive
international border in J[ammu] & K[ashmir] and Punjab sectors.
- The team of experts, including officials of the Mossad,
the Israeli Army and the Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI), also found
shocking loopholes in the security arrangements relating to the much-talked
about Samjhauta Express. They advised that instead of Lahore, the train
should terminate on the Attari border. Sources in the Ministry of Home
Affairs said the Israeli experts surveyed the 198 km international border
in Jammu and Punjab and reviewed the route of the Samjhauta Express with
top officials of the Border Security Force.
- Subsequently, former DG of the Border Security Force,
E.N. Ram Mohan was appointed as the consultant on border management. Mr.
Ram Mohan has recommended that besides radars, aerostate balloons and
FLIR equipment be used.
- India is keen to purchase surveillance aircraft (UAVs)
from Israel to gain intelligence teeth. The UAVs could also help the state
police in keeping an eye in naxalite-affected areas of Andhra Pradesh.
- For several years, Mossad and Israel's internal intelligence
agency, Shinbhet, have utilised unmanned air vehicles to patrol the hypersensitive
- Qutbuddin Aziz, former minister in Pakistan embassy in
London, wrote an excellent article, titled 'Dangerous Nexus between Israel
& India.' It was published by a prominent Pakistani newspaper on
April 1, 2001.
- Aziz writes: "Top secret details of Indian Home
Minister LK Advani's visit to Israel in June 2000, show that the deals
he has struck with the Israelis would make India and Israel partners in
threatening the Muslim world with diabolic conspiracies to fragment and
cripple it as a political force in the world. The details of his meetings
with Israel's rulers, particularly the heads of the Israeli Home Ministry
and its intelligence agencies, Mossad and Sabak, reveal that the arrangements
he has made for joint Indo-Israel espionage operations in key areas of
the Muslim world would make the Indian embassies in these Muslim countries
the eyes and ears of the worldwide cloak-and-dagger Israeli spy network.
- "Under the euphemism of 'counter-terrorism,' India
is allowing Israel to establish a huge spy establishment in India which
will, inter alia, unearth and monitor 'Islamic fundamentalist' individuals
and groups for elimination by extra judicial process or by cold-blooded
murder and kidnapping.
- "The most important meeting Indian Home Minister
Advani had during his three-day Israeli tour on June 13-16 was with the
top brass of Israel's intelligence agencies in Tel Aviv. Heading the Israeli
team was the powerful chief of Israeli police, Yehuda Wilk, with the heads
of the Israeli intelligence agencies, Mossad and Sabak, and military officials
dealing with Israel's punitive and espionage operations against Arabs
in Israel, Palestine and neighbouring states such as Lebanon and Syria.
Senior officials from the Israeli Foreign Office and the defence and home
ministries attended this meeting. Israeli experts in bomb detection were
- "Mr. Advani's large team included India's highest-level
spymasters such as the Director of the Intelligence Bureau, Mr. Shayamal
Dutta, the Director of the Central Bureau of Investigation, Mr. R. K.
Raghvan, the head of the Indian Border Security Force, Mr. E. M. Ram Mohan,
Indian Home Ministry's powerful Secretary K. Pande who oversees the work
of the infamous Indian spy agency, RAW, and liaises with the Indian Foreign
Office in respect of undercover RAW agents working in Indian embassies
abroad, and a senior officer of India's military intelligence agency (equivalent
of Pakistan's ISI).
- "In this top-level meeting in Tel Aviv on June 14,
Advani reportedly thanked the Israeli government for its immense help
to India in security matters and spoke of the dangers India and Israel
face from their common enemies, i.e., Muslim neighbours.
- "Advani, it is reported, highly praised the help
provided by Mossad and army commando personnel to the Indian army in the
war on 'Muslim militants' in Kashmir and against 'Muslim terrorists' such
as the 'Memon brothers' of Mumbai in Dubai. Advani said he had, throughout
his political career, advocated India's recognition and friendship with
Israel and that his party had played a key role in forcing Congress government
to have full diplomatic relations with Israel in 1992.
- "He lauded the Indo-Israeli cooperation in the military,
economic and other fields. Advani recalled that India had voted in favour
of a US-sponsored motion in the UN for rescinding a UN resolution that
equated Zionism with racism. Mr. Advani explained at length India's security
problems in which the danger from Pakistan and Indian Muslims getting
Arab money loomed large. Advani gave a long list of the special services
in spying and the anti-insurgency devices and spy equipment India urgently
needs from Israel to combat 'Muslim terrorism.'
- "In the June 14 Tel Aviv meeting, the Israeli Police
Chief, Yehuda Wilk, profusely praised India for its friendship with Israel
and pledged help to the Indian government in combating 'Muslim terrorism'
that poses new threats to Israel and India. The heads of India's intelligence
agencies then briefed the Israeli side in the meeting on the ground situation
in India in respect of 'Muslim terrorists,' especially in Jammu and Kashmir,
and the new dangers coming up for India and Israel because of the Pakistani
bomb and the fear that Pakistan may give its nuclear weapons to the anti-Israel
- "The Indian side showed a keen interest in learning
from Israeli security experts how they had run the slice of Lebanon which
Israel ruled for 18 years and gave up recently. Some information about
the Israeli torture and investigation methods was gathered by the Indian
side from the Israelis with regard to dealing with Arab dissidents within
Israel and in the Palestinian Authority region.
- "The Indians gave the Israelis a long shopping list
of spying, torture and surveillance equipment such as electronic fencing
of sensitive sites, laser systems, short-range rockets, eagle-eyed long
distance snipers, observation blimps, giant shields, night vision device,
unmanned aircraft of the MALAT wing of the Israeli Aircraft Industries
Limited, special protective dress and gear for security personnel, cross
border snopping devices and gadgets, training and deployment of spies
and the special gear for them, use of computers and Internet for espionage
and disinformation, code-breaking, tailing of enemy agents and their elimination,
nuclear espionage, purloining state secrets of hostile countries and pooling
them for the good of India and Israel and their mutual friends.
- "The Israelis were interested in having access to
the secret reports of Indian undercover RAW diplomats from certain Muslim
countries of special interest to Israel (especially Pakistan, Libya and
Iran). India is apparently willing to grant access to Israeli agents to
the Indian Home Ministry's Central Intelligence Processing Unit (CIPU)
in New Delhi. This was recently set up under Advani's direction with Israeli
and US help. A handpicked RAW officer, trusted by Advani, heads this unit.
Israel wants full access to its information data. The Indian government
has already allowed access to it by American intelligence agencies now
working with the Indian government on so-called anti-terrorist assignments.
- Federation of American Scientists website comments on
RAW in these words: "RAW has engaged in disinformation campaigns,
espionage and sabotage against Pakistan and other neighboring countries.
RAW has enjoyed the backing of successive Indian governments in these
efforts. Working directly under the Prime Minister, the structure, rank,
pay and perks of the Research & Analysis Wing are kept secret from

- Ed Blanche writes in Janes' Security on 14 August 2001:
"Israeli intelligence agencies have been intensifying their relations
with India's security apparatus and are now understood to be heavily involved
in helping New Delhi combat Islamic militants in the disputed province
of Kashmir, India's only Muslim-majority state which lies at the core
of the conflict with neighbouring Pakistan.
- "Israel has several teams now in Kashmir training
Indian counter-insurgency forces to fight the dozen separatist guerrilla
groups operating in the Indian-controlled sector of the disputed state.
- "The exact extent of the involvement in Kashmir
by Israel s intelligence agencies is far from clear, but it fits into Israel's
increasing focus on events in Central Asia, and as far afield as Indonesia,
the world's most populous Muslim state, to counteract Islamic fundamentalism,
which it perceives as a major threat.
- "Shimon Peres, currently Israel's foreign minister,
said during a visit to New Delhi in January 2001 (shortly before he took
his current post in Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's coalition government)
that Israel was prepared to co-operate with India to fight terrorism.
Weeks earlier, an Israeli counterterrorism team, including military intelligence
specialists and senior police commanders, paid a visit to Indian-administered
Kashmir and other regions of the country that are grappling with anti-government
militants to assess India's security needs.
- If there is still any doubt as to the real intentions
of Israel, then please see this statement issued by David Ben Gurion,
the first Israeli Prime Minister. His words, as printed in the Jewish
Chronicle, 9 August 1967, leave nothing to imagination:
- "The world Zionist movement should not be neglectful
of the dangers of Pakistan to it. And Pakistan now should be its first
target, for this ideological State is a threat to our existence. And Pakistan,
the whole of it, hates the Jews and loves the Arabs.
- "This lover of the Arabs is more dangerous to us
than the Arabs themselves. For that matter, it is most essential for the
world Zionism that it should now take immediate steps against Pakistan.
- "Whereas the inhabitants of the Indian peninsula
are Hindus whose hearts have been full of hatred towards Muslims, therefore,
India is the most important base for us to work therefrom against Pakistan.
- "It is essential that we exploit this base and strike
and crush Pakistanis, enemies of Jews and Zionism, by all disguised and
secret plans. ____
