Mass murder in Mumbai
Ripped from Andrew Bolt
Terrible news from Mumbai:
Over 60 people have been killed and many more injured in several terrorist attacks in Mumbai on Wednesday night. Two five-star hotels – Trident and Taj – are under siege and gunmen are reported to have held the occupants hostage.
The choice of targets (some guaranteed to scare foreigners) andÂ the coordinationÂ naturally suggest a terrorist group.
A claim of resposibility has been made via email by a group calledÂ Dekhan Hujahedin.
The gunmen were specifically targeting Britons and AmericansÂ and a top police official said the gunmen are holding hostages at two luxury hotels, the Taj Mahal and Oberoi hotels.
At least 20 Australians have been caught up in the chaos and two Australians were injured, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade said…Â At least 20 Australians were in the Oberoi Hotel at the time of the attack, all of them members of a NSW trade delegation organised by the Department of State and Regional Development.
* The inevitable result of allowing large numbers of Muhammedans to settle Â (or, as in the case of India, to remain) behind enemy lines:

Weasel Zippers has more:
Over 40 western hostages are reportedly being held at two luxury hotels in soutern Mumbai, say the Times of India.
The Indian army is reportedly moving in on two hotels in Mumbai where terrorists have taken western hostages.
A group calling itself the “Deccan Mujahedeen” has claimed responsibility for the attacks, according to the Press Trust of India.
Jihad group claims Mumbai attacks
The Deccan Mujahideen — warriors of jihad. Is it all right to mention that fact? AsÂ Pamela asks, “Are we allowed to talk about it, or is thisÂ insulting to Islam and in violation of the UN resolutionÂ against ‘defaming Islam'”?
