Praying for Mumbai

Healthwise, it's been a miserable weekend for me, and right now it's raining so hard and it's so cold outside, but it doesn't seem to go to snow or sleet, just small ice droplets of rain. Miserable. Good night for soup.

And to be grateful to be alive and safe and warm, when the events this weekend in Mumbai played out. I am especially sad, since I personally knew three wonderful men who perished on September 11, and this reminds me of that event.

One of the best descriptions of this aftermath came from the blog "Elms in the Yard", an Israeli blogger who is also a cat lover. Below is from her blog.

Friday Cats: Praying for Mumbai Edition
Three cats hang out on Agrippas Street in downtown Jerusalem.



I add my prayers for the victims of the terror attacks in Mumbai. May the wounded have a complete recovery, and may all those whom the terrorists are still holding hostage soon be released unharmed.

And may any surviving terrorists meet with swift justice.

Rabbis are asking that we recite Psalm 20 for the rabbi of Mumbai’s Chabad House—known locally as Nariman House—and his wife: Gavriel Noach ben Freida Bluma and Rivka bas Yehudis, together with all those still being held captive.

Let’s hope India leads a more successful investigation than the USA’s pathetic investigation of 9/11. They should of arrested 50+ people I imagine. I bet India will pin it on at least some terrorist sympathizers, as long as they aren’t Muslims. We all know that it is the Hindus who want to kill all the Jews. In NY these scum-terrorist monkeys would have been blown away by the NYPD long before they killed 10 people probably.

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
call yourself a policeman

if you are afraid of thugs
and refuse to put them down

No matter how many terrorist attacks there are, and no matter what groups carry them out, we must never fear, resist or mock the precious and ever peaceful Islam. Who are we to say that raping 6 year-olds is immoral? Who are we to say that stoning gays and rape victims to death is evil?

Who are we to say that killing hundreds of people every month in the name of Allah is the height of evil? That is just their culture and ideology and it MUST be respected. Morality is all relative, we must remember that.
