More on the Mumbai Massacre

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.

About Shimona from the Palace

Born in London, the UK, I came on Aliyah in my teens and now live in Jerusalem, where I practice law. I am a firm believer in the words of Albert Schweitzer: "There are two means of refuge from the sorrows of this world - Music and Cats." To that, you can add Literature. To curl up on the sofa with a good book, a cat at one's feet and another one on one's lap, with a classical symphony or concerto in the background - what more can a person ask for?
