“IBN live reporting Jewish families are being held by terrorists, apparently at a residence [Nariman House].”

This was planned in advance .

And Nariman Point is a really Posh area .

AQ likes splashy press, parades and games. Maybe malls early enough Friday to turn away modday and late shoppers.

We can’t just say “shop anyway”. The sheep won’t buy it, and the stores need every buck.

Too much “defense” might scare people away too.

Got about 36 hours to guess right.

0bama will do a presser soon to demand all parties involved show restraint

Yeah. "Stop the cycle of violence."

I think the sooner a "cycle" starts, the sooner the violence will end.

Oh, I think that’s obvious.

IBN says that security forces seem to be in control of the Taj Hotel area now.

People still being rescued. Using fire truck ladders to extract some from the windows on upper floors.

A Chabad house is located at 5 Hormusji Street in Mumbai. India is a popular destination for young Israeli backpackers, who often make the trip after their army service.

People who do are being targeted and it is on the boob tube for all talk about as we have Thanksgiving here.

No talk, YET, about how many Americans have died.

Will the media report it? Or will this be another thing hidden or minimalized by the Media to keep the MEssiah from looking bad?

Trident Hotel under siege by army, rapid action force and police who are working inside. Up to 300 inside but only 30-40 have come out. Reported that evacuations are taking place through the basement but no details given as to prevent terrorist from attacking. Not many evacuations have come out through the above ground exits. Now explosions and gunshots reported by the female reporter.

At the Taj, rescues from upper floors through windows and down ladders. Dead bodies reported inside.

I have a video of Yanni playing at the Taj Mahal. I bet he stayed in one of those hotels. It was at least ten years ago he did a pbs special. I love the Taj Mahal and used to collect brass from India.

Sorry but it is all nonsense. People do the same thing with the ratio of the sides of the great pyramid and lots of other historical figures.

Umberto Eco writes about this phenomenon in “Foucault’s Pendulum”.

The most telling aspect of the attack is the fact that it involved so many people but was not penetrated by the Indian intelligence agencies.
