Kiwis Know How To Confront Terrorism!

What are Pakistani terrorists doing in New Zealand?

On June 12, 2013 the Global Peace Index released a report indicating that New Zealand was the third most peaceful country on the planet, after Iceland and Denmark. Ironically, on the very same day, New Zealand showed up on the global terror map.
At a US Congressional hearing, Congressman Peter King, Chairman, Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence, said Pakistan-based terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) operates networks that ''span across South Asia and the Persian Gulf into Europe, especially Britain, as well as Canada and New Zealand''. For New Zealanders this should be a wake up call
The LeT has been designated a terrorist organisation by both the United States and the United Nations. ''The LeT is a terror proxy of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence, which provides the LeT with a safe haven and funding to train and prepare for terrorist attacks,'' Congressman King said.
''While focussed on Pakistan's dispute over Kashmir, an issue over which it regularly kills innocent Indian civilians, the LeT's reach is broad and goes abroad. In addition to the 2009 plot in Denmark, LeT supported a planned 2002 attack on Australia by means of a trainer sent from France,'' he pointed out.

Stalking far away places
New Zealand is far far away from the world's troublespots. Bombs may explode in Boston, Moscow and Mumbai but what are the chances of explosives being planted in New Zealand? Smaller than small, you say? Guess again.
