Letter to Chabad House in Mumbai “We will strike again”

Mumbai Chabad receives threat

January 7, 2010

(JTA) — The Chabad house in Mumbai has received a letter threatening another attack.

The handwritten letter was received recently at the site where an attack more than a year ago killed six Jews, including Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries Rabbi Gavriel and Rivkah Holtzberg, who ran the center, according to Ynet.

It read, in part, “Israel is dogs. We will strike again — heil, Hitler,” and was accompanied by a photo of Adolf Hitler, the news site reported.

Chabad’s Nariman House was one of 10 Mumbai sites under siege during a three-day attack that began on Nov. 26, 2008 by an Islamist Pakistani group that left 166 dead and hundreds injured.

The letter was turned over to Israeli authorities in India, Ynet reported. Indian security officials also were notified.
