MUMBAI : A Delhi-based publisher, Pharos Media, has just published the first comprehensive and critical study of the 26/11 terror attacks on Mumbai. Written by a Germany-based author, the 905-page book, The Betrayal of India – Revisiting the 26/11 Evidence, covers all episodes of this event, the responses of the police and the NSG, alleged intelligence failures, the mystery surrounding Ajmal Kasab, court proceedings, and an assessment of the motives of various actors.
The methodology employed draws from the fields of criminology, law and political science. In the end, this voluminous book offers three conclusions that the author designates as definite, namely that India’s major institutions are suppressing the truth on 26/11 ,that India’s judiciary has betrayed its duty to seek truth and render justice and business, political and military circles in India and the United States profited from the mass-murder of 26/11.
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.
Pharos in a press release issued stated that In 2002, Davidsson discovered to his dismay that public has been grossly deceived regarding the events of 9/11. He spent more than 10 years investigating this mass murder. This research culminated with the publication in New York in 2013 of his book, Hijacking America’s Mind on 9/11. That book demonstrates, beyond reasonable doubt, that the official legend of 9/11 is pure fiction in the sense of attributing it to Islamic fanatics. There is no shred of evidence for this legend. His findings regarding 9/11 prompted him to investigate other terrorist events carried out outside conflict zones, which were attributed by Western governments and media to Al Qaeda or to other allegedly Muslim entities. He wanted to know whether 9/11 was an exception or rather a model for more recent terrorist attacks, it added.
Having investigated a series of such events, including the attacks on Djerba (Tunisia), Istanbul (Turkey), Amman (Jordan) and the London bombings of 2005, he decided to examine the Mumbai attacks of November 2008. He has heavily relied on official and eyewitness reports, monographs, books and court judgments regarding 26/11 which are available in English language. The result is the most comprehensive study yet to appear of the 26/11 terror attacks. All factual claims of the book are accompanied by readily accessible sources, the release stated.
