I haven't blogged about the terrorist attacks in Mumbai because nothing I wrote seemed to capture the sheer enormity and horror of it. Then I saw this, and I realized that I don't need to write anything.

That is Moshe, the 2 year-old son of Rivka Holtzberg, crying and calling for his mother during her funeral service.

The only attacker taken alive was quoted in an interview saying "We have done right. I have no regrets."

I wonder if he sees what the outcome of these actions were, if he understands that their attack, whether religiously or politically motivated, is nothing but horrific and monstrous.

Slaughter cannot, and will not, ever be right.

Moshe was also beaten by the terrorists. These people are savages and should be treated as such.

I agree, E. I have been stunned. I am still in shock.
