The reports of the overnight killings in Mumbai are horrifying. The image of religiously-motivated young men searching for totally innocent civilians with American or British passports and then killing them because they originate from these particular countries makes all civilised humanity recoil. Pure evil.
Sympathies for the 100+ dead innocents and for the 280+ injured and something approximating a prayer for those held hostage by these evil men.
Update 1: In Cairo 20,000 holy Muslims have surrounded 1,000 holy Christians in a Church chanting Jihad verses and claiming "We sacrifice our blood and souls, we sacrifice ourselves for you, Islam" while the entrapped Christians chanted "Lord have mercy". The Muslim mob included young children and women.
Update 2: The attack in India may have been planned with a view to eliciting tit-for-tat responses. This would create a dangerous new front-line in the war against terrorism. India has 150 million Muslims but far more 'safe' non-Muslim targets.
