All Hostages Released Unharmed After Texas Synagogue Standoff, Captor Dead

The FBI has refused to confirm the identity of the captor or his motive (Typical of western government when anythingr Islam  is involved so as not to offend Moslems.)

All Hostages Released Unharmed After Texas Synagogue Standoff, Captor Dead

The rabbi and three congregants were held hostage for more than 10 hours by a man seeking the release of Aafia Siddiqui, who is serving life for planning to kill U.S. servicemen who questioned her in Afghanistan

Four hostages held at a Texas synagogue were released safely on Saturday after more than 10 hours, Governor Greg Abbott announced, ending a tense standoff with police that put U.S. Jewish communities on high-alert.
An FBI hostage rescue team breached the Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, Texas on Saturday night, rescuing the three remaining hostages, after one hostage was released during the negotiations., the security service confirmed.
The FBI and local police said that the captor was killed, but according to local media it remains unclear whether he was shot by security forces or killed himself.

The hostages are all unharmed following the operation by the elite rescue team hailed from Virginia, which was joined by 60-70 more people arriving from Washington, according to CNN.

U.S. President Joe Biden thanked the “courageous work” of U.S. law enforcement agencies.

“Let me be clear to anyone who intends to spread hate—we will stand against anti-Semitism and against the rise of extremism in this country. That is who we are, and tonight, the men and women of law enforcement made us all proud,” Biden added.

Israel’s Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said on Twitter he was “relieved and thankful” the hostages had been rescued, adding: “This event is a stark reminder that antisemitism is still alive and we must continue to fight it worldwide.”

The suspect, identified by some U.S. media outlets as Muhammad Siddiqui, entered the Reform synagogue shortly before 11 A.M., during the Sabbath service, and took the rabbi and three worshipers hostage. The U.K. government later confirmed that the assailant was a British citizen.

The Sabbath service was being livestreamed on Facebook and Zoom, but was taken down soon after the crisis began.
The man was reportedly holding the congregants in a bid to secure the release of Aafia Siddiqui, who is serving a prison sentence until 2083 for attempted murder charges. The FBI has refused to confirm the identity of the captor or his motive. HAARETZ read more
