In that ‘The Jews ARE the Canary in the coal’ mine sense, the fact that they are singled out for attack despite any politics or other motive should be seen for what it is. Islam is waging it’s war on the world based on Quoranic tenants which are clear. The fact that the single out jews for special treatment in attacks and killing should assuage any lingering sympathies that Muslims are doing these actions because of any reasonable cause. There is no ‘oppression’ of Muslims in Israel or anywhere else that requires armed resistance.

Gunmen seized the Mumbai headquarters of the Orthodox Jewish outreach group Chabad Lubavitch, run by Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife, Rivka, according to media reports.
Shots were heard coming from the building.
“Our prayers are focused on Rabbi Holtzberg and all of those who are going through this ordeal,” said Chabad spokesman Rabbi Zalman Shmotkin. “They are extremely caring people, both of them,” he said of the Holtzbergs, who live in Crown Heights.
The New York-based group’s Web site said that Holtzberg had been in touch with the Israeli Consulate, but that the line was cut during the conversation and that “no further contact has since been established.”
India TV reported that the terrorists threw a grenade at a gas pump located in a station next to the synagogue. They then stormed the center and took people hostage.
A woman who ran out of the center said she was a cook at the synagogue and that five or six terrorists were still holding hostages.
“Far as we know, it is still under siege,” Shmotkin said.
