Islamic extremists planned to abduct Jewish residents of Prague, hold them hostage in one of the city s synagogues and then blow up the building, according to reports published over the weekend. According to Czech newspaper Mlad Fronta Dnes, Muslims affiliated with an unnamed group planned to stage negotiations with local authorities over their hostages, but the group never intended to release them. Rather, the kidnappers planned to make unrealistic demands, and then, when their demands went unmet, blow up the synagogue and its occupants.
