Kashmir: India resists jihad; 9 jihad raiders, 1 Muslim rioter killed
Like Israel, India is a majority non-Muslim state facing a Jihad waged both from without (cross-border raids launched by jihad terror gangs based in neighbouring Muslim countries) and from within (a large aggressive Muslim minority who refuse to accept the authority of the non-Muslim state within which they live).
This story, via one of AFP's Muslim reporters - Izhar Wani - gives an update on both fronts. Unable to wage all-out conventional war, Pakistan and the Muslims within India wage a war of attrition through acts of low-level aggression: raids and riots.
'Border firefight, violence leaves ten dead in Indian Kashmir'.
Srinagar, India - Indian troops killed nine suspected militants as they tried to cross the de facto border with Pakistan that divides the volatile region of Kashmir, the army said Monday.
('Volatile' is one of AFP's favourite words for jihad-racked Muslim-majority parts of the world - CM).
Elsewhere in Indian-controlled Kashmir fresh violence left a boy dead and 12 injured when police opened fire on anti-India protesters in separate clashes.
"The army has foiled a major infiltration attempt killing nine militants who were trying to infiltrate into (Indian) Kashmir from across the Line of Control (LoC)", army spokesman J S Brar told AFP. He said a gun battle erupted late Sunday in western Uri sector and continued throughout the night after troops noticed a group of militants trying to sneak in under the cover of darkness."...
India has in the past accused the Pakistani army of providing covering fire for infiltrating militants. Islamabad denies the charge.
India and Pakistan agreed to a ceasefire along the LoC in 2003 and began a peace process in 2004. ('Peace process', eh? Just like that other 'peace process' we hear so much about, in the Middle East, that never goes anywhere, because Muslims can never make a permanent peace with non-Muslims - CM).
'A young Muslim boy was killed and four others injured when police opened fire to disperse stone-throwing protesters during an anti-India demonstration in southern Anantnag town Monday evening, police said. In Srinagar..six people were injured when police opened fire. Police said the incident occurred when a group of protesters (i.e. a Muslim mob - CM) hurled stones at police and shouted slogans...Two more stone-hurling protesters were injured in southern Pulwama district when police opened fire at violent demonstrators, police said. Tensions have been threatening to boil over during 11 weeks of demonstrations.."....
11 weeks of Muslim riots and rock-throwing (punctuated by Muslim terror raids into Indian Kashmir from across the border)? Call it the Kashmir Intifada.

Deepest apologies. My very first posting and I make a totally embarrassing mistake in the transcription of the news story - and didn't notice it before I hit 'post!'
The sentence that reads 'when police opened fire on anti-jihad protesters' should read 'when police opened fire on anti-India protesters'.
Got that, everyone? The news report read ANTI-INDIA and that's what I should have typed.
So sorry to make that stupid slip in my first blog post.
