How do you know? A POLICEMAN witness saw WHITE terrorists inside. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THIS? Anybody who could clarify this, I'll accept the criticism. I'd rather know Muslims did this. frankly!
From the Guardian of UK
"One police officer who encountered the gunmen as they entered the Jewish centre told the Guardian the attackers were "white""
"I went into the building late last night," he said. "I got a shock because they were white. I was expecting them to look like us. They fired three shots. I fired 10 back."
Now, Indians know fair skinned Indians and Pakistanis. They meet them every day, especially in Mumbai, where all the upper class Indians congregate. Indians know foreigners and they call Americans and Europeans "foreigners" or "white". It is easy for an Indian to tell the difference between a fair skinned Indian or Pakistani and a "foreigner"
Other eyewitnesses at other locations also describe the terrorists as "foreign" or fair skinned.
In the original article there is a disclaimer that states that that could mean that they were fairer skinned than them, Indians from the North. This was omitted in this quote by the Pakistanis.
Re: the FOOD, I guess you are right, I misunderstood. My apologies
"The terrorists came to Colaba on Wednesday evening," Mukund Shelke, who runs a grocery shop at Colaba Market, said. "Before barging into Nariman House, they had purchased adequate food to last them at least three days," he said.
"They had purchased around two crates of chicken and liquor worth Rs25,000 from two shops in Colaba," another resident Joseph D'Mello said. "They then entered the Nariman House building and took the Israeli family captive."
The locals said the terrorists were youths. Nobody suspected them to be being radicals, they said.
It could not be ascertained from where they made the purchases, since all the shops in Colaba were closed on Thursday due to the heavy posse of security personnel.
Some residents claimed that the suspects were keeping track of the police's movements through a television in Nariman House.
"When the news of top police officials getting killed flashed in the television, we heard loud noises from the flat. It seemed they were celebrating," Anand Raorane, a resident
in a building opposite Nariman House, said.
To be noted that some attackers at the other hotels were also white:

Then, the "foreign looking, fair skinned" men, as Mr Mishra remembers them, simply carried on killing.
"They did not look Indian, they looked foreign. One of them, I thought, had blonde hair. The other had a punkish hairstyle. They were neatly dressed," says Mr Amir.
