The attacks in Mumbai in November 2008 - designated as 26/11 - left 162 people dead in a traumatic event that some people described as India's 9/11. Extensive media coverage has created the impression that all the relevant facts on this audacious operation have been reported. Unfortunately, this impression is false. This book represents a comprehensive and critical evaluation of the official narrative of 26/11, as reflected in court documents and the news media. It presents testimonies of dozens of important witnesses, whom Indian courts ignored because they shed a radically different light on the events. The book presents a detailed analysis of the benefits accruing to powerful constituencies in India and the US from the mass-murder. The results of this evaluation are shattering for they expose a tacit consensus by leading news media, the political class, the police and the judicial system, to cover up the true facts on 26/11 and thereby shield the real criminals. The book's ultimate purpose is to serve as a wake-up call to the Indian public to liberate itself from the grips of a predatory, corrupt and ruthless ruling class that prevents the majority of Indian citizens from enjoying a life of dignity and peace. Born in Palestine in 1941 to German-Jewish parents, the author, Elias Davidsson, was sensibilized early on to questions of justice, particularly in the light of the persecutions experienced by Jews in Europe. Opposition to injustice and its variants, such as racism, war and mass deception, constitutes a red thread leading through all his life.

In the 9/11 community, Davidsson is no blank sheet. He has published books on 9/11 and the follow-up terrorist attacks that set the world on fire. "Hijacking America’s Mind on 9/11" , followed by "Psychological Warfare and Social Denial: The Legend of 9/11 and the Fiction of Terrorism" (Psychologische Kriegsführung und Gesellschaftliche Leugnung: Die Legende des 9/11 und die Fiktion der Terrorbedrohung) presented a different narrative. An English translation of a condensed version would be very informative and highly useful for the English speaking public.
The elucidation of a terrorist offense suffers from the fact that governments clean up only as much as it benefits them politically. Such an approach also holds true for the Mumbai attacks. The impression given by the Indian government that all facts were on the table, is, according to Davidsson, false. As with the "9/11 Commission Report", which pretends to present the real events and the backgrounds, the same holds true for the processing of this heinous crime of 26/11, 2008. In both cases, statements of witnesses, which didn't support the official narrative were glossed over or brushed aside.
That's why Davidsson's book is so important. In 25 chapters he unravels not only the motivations and the cover-up of the Indian government but also the multifaceted interests of international actors such as Pakistan, the U.S., and possibly Great Britain, Germany, Israel, Iran, Russia, China, and even Australia.
"The book is about the betrayal of the Indian nation by a corrupt, greedy and ruthless elite for whom the lives of ordinary Indians are expendable when power and profit are at stake," writes the author. From day one, a particular part of the official account was questioned, namely, the circumstances surrounding the deaths of three senior police officials and their assistants. Many Indians voiced their suspicion that the authorities were covering-up facts and called for an independent and impartial investigation of the events.
The author presents three definite conclusions; firstly, India's major institutions are suppressing the truth on 26/11; secondly, India's judiciary has failed its duty to seek truth and render justice; thirdly, Business, political and military circles profited from 26/11. Furthermore, entities in the U. S. and Israel also gained from the attack. The author could not find any benefits for the Pakistani government, military or businesses. The main profiteer seems the Hindu nationalist constituencies by the "elimination" of Hemant Karkare, "who was on the verge of exposing Hindutva terrorist networks."
Davidsson calls on the Indian Civil society to ask for the establishment of a National Truth Commission on 26/11 mandated to establish the facts on the attacks of 26 November 2008. The Civil society itself should demand the creation of an International Commission of Inquiry on the previous terrorist attacks under the authority of Chapter VII of the U.N. Charter, including those committed in the U. S. on 11 September 2001.
With this study, the Indian Civil society has a document at its disposal to challenge the official narrative. The overall objective of the author, however, is the exposure of all the key terror attacks, especially 9/11, which lacks to this day any evidence that 19 Muslims were the perpetrators.
This very compact but exciting book should contribute to the solving of the 26/11 crime. A must read for everybody interested in the truth.
As we all know that any "criminal conspiracy start with lie and ends with lie". Hence the statements of terrorists to media could have been willingly fake.
We all know that if handlers can trained their youngsters to die on foreign soil, then they can surely train those People to lie about their actual origin.
Conclusion: their may be chances of loopholes in our system, but it doesn't mean that 26/11 terrorism is origin / incarnation of Indian soil.
These type of books never helps law and order instead will create panic to civil peace.
