Colleyville, Texas: A Rabbi and several service members have been taken hostage in Colleyville, Texas.

The gunman entered during Shabbat services and is saying:

“I am going to die by the end of this”.

“If anyone tries to enter this building, I’m telling you… everyone will die”.

The suspect stormed in during a Bar Miztvah celebration and says he is muslim. A Rabbi and at least 3 people are being held hostage.

The hostage-taker is claiming to be armed and says his sister is Aafia Siddiqui, who was convicted in New York of trying to kill US military personnel. The hostage taker is demanding his sister be released from prison.

Siddiqui (from Pakistan) was sentenced to 86 years in prison after she tried to murder American soldiers in 2008.


  1. So how many things are wrong with this reporting. First there was the necessity of saying it is a Reform Temple. Your the 5 Towns Central. You think maybe a hostage situation in a Shul would be more Achdus then splitting is up into different decisions. Trust me, Ethan they come to burn us, their not going to care of you were shomer shabbat or not.

  2. This is in Texas! If this happened in LI one could say” no guns, we are always negotiating and talking nicely.”
    If this can happen in mighty Texas assuming shul was not even protected with a guard)- why didn’t one of them just shoot this troublemaker in his heart or feet immediately?????
    Why are we always talking, negotiating, appeasing?
    What would happen here if this happened??
    We can “thank” the likes of AOC and her women in white, Tlabib, and the radical liberals including their supporting self hurting/hating Jewish leaders for this unfolding tragedy.
