According to the news now coming out of Mumbai, it appears that the Jewish victims at the Chabad Centre, were singled out for "special treatment". Pathologists who examined the bodies report that they were tortured, before being tied up and then butchered in cold blood. A senior pathologist declared that despite having dealt with many dead bodies over the course of his career, the sight that met his eyes at the Chabad Centre had left him traumatised.
Lest anyone doubt that the murderers were motivated by anything other than Jew-hatred, let it be noted that they even desecrated the Torah scrolls, riddling them with bullets.
Back here in Israel, today witnessed the funerals of the six Israeli victims of the vicious, Islamofascist attack. In Jerusalem, thousands attended that of Rabbi Gavriel Holzberg and his wife, Rivka, on the Mount of Olives. Their son, two year old Moshe, miraculously survived, rescued from the slaughter by his Indian nanny.
The Torah is stronger than bullets. As for the Holzbergs and all the other innocent victims of this latest instance of Islamofascist terror – may G-d avenge their blood.
