Who is Dawood Ibrahim?

Douglas Farah at Counterterrorism Blog has a post which offers some insight into the life of Dawood Ibrahim, chief suspect of the Mumbai, India bombings. Here's a portion:

A criminal kingpin, ally of al Qaeda, large-scale drug runner and financer of some of Bollywood's biggest movies, Ibrahim loves to hang out with movie stars and live the good life. Not exactly a natural ally of radical Islamist groups, but he appears to provide the muscle and know-how to attacks, rather than being the intellectual author of the violence he has pariticpated in. His ideology seems more firmly wedded to his financial well-being than to his religious beliefs.
