“Israel is dogs. We will strike again—heil, Hitler.” So reads the handwritten note that the Chabad house in Mumbai was sent. A picture of Hitler was reportedly attached.

In November 2008, Islamic terrorists staged a massacre in the Indian city, killing 170. The Chabad was one of several sites specifically targeted, and six occupants were killed.
