"I'm in a synagogue, I've got four beautiful guys, Jewish guys with me. I'm bombed up, I've got fucking every ammunition. I've only been here two weeks and I've got them all at gunpoint"

Why are we not getting this from American media?

I'm worried my RTs about how awesome the #Colleyville rabbi is could be read as "they don't deserve this, these are the GOOD Jews," and I want to be 100% clear that's bullshit. His progressive credentials shouldn't be the only reason to support his congregation during an attack.
If you only stand with Jews when they meet certain standards, you don't actually stand with Jews. This isn't transactional. I'm sorry if anything I've RTed has given the opposite impression.

(No one has called me out on this, but I just want to be totally clear here.)
(Because I'm me, I am currently overanalyzing why I said "they" instead of "we" when describing Jews. My goal here is not to distance myself from my community. Just for the record.)

ABC News’ @AaronKatersky broke details about the synagogue hostage taker in Colleyville, Texas. Muhammad is reportedly the brother of jailed jihadist terrorist, Aafia Siddiqui.
I’ve deleted the first tweet in the thread since the actual brother of jihadist terrorist Aafia Siddiqui confirmed he wasn’t the man in the hostage incident at the #Colleyville synagogue. The suspect in the incident is now deceased & his name has not been confirmed yet.
