Tragedy in Pakistan: a kidnapping

An American Jew working in Pakistan has been kidnapped:
An American Jew was abducted by gunmen who broke into his house in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore on Saturday, the Associated Press reports.

The US Embassy identified the victim as Warren Weinstein. According to reports Weinstein serves as the Pakistan director for J.E. Austin Associates, a development contractor that works with the aid arm of the American government.

Weinstein's Linked In website profile says he is based in Lahore and has been in Pakistan for seven years. Calls to the company headquarters in Virginia were not immediately answered, but its website describes Weinstein as a development expert with 25 years experience and a Ph.D. in international law and economics.
Tragically, his fate may be sealed, just like Daniel Pearl's own. How is it that nearly a decade after that horror, another man of Jewish background hasn't learned why it's dangerous to go there?

The Mumbai attacks which were initiated by Pakistanis should be enough warning for Westerners that Pakistan is dangerous. To be thought to be a Jew there (even just by surname) is suicidal.

I didn't know he was Jewish. Well, I'm adding this to the post I wrote this morning.

Frankly I agree with some comments, it cannot be smart for any American, especially Jewish (or even Jewish sounding name) to live in that country outside a heavily protected compound and with many guards.

Sadly, I think he is already dead and we can even expect a video.

May God protect him.
