The Mumbai Attacks

Reader comment on: The Mumbai Attacks

Submitted by Debbie (United States), Dec 4, 2008 20:59

Many people believe that one of the designated targets of the Pakistani Islamist terrorists was the Mumbai Chabad House, the one Jewish center in Mumbai. The terrorists chose their targets well.

A friend of mine asked why would a terrorist group of Islamists from Pakistan whose primary goal is to have Pakistan gain control of the third of Kashmir that belongs to India and therefore aimed to destabilize india's major city devote so much of its efforts 20 percent of its force of 10 gunmen whose stated goal was to kill 5,000- to killing a rabbi and more Jewish people with him.?

Its the same tactics Hitler used in World War II. Of course he was not rational, and a tyrant. For the Islamists as for the Nazis, the destruction of the Jews is central to their worldview. The Pakistani Islamists hate the Hindus and did not attack one Hindu temple in the major city. Jews and Christians need to be on their guard everywhere as this war escalates.
