Charlottesville Jews Were Forced Out The Back Door By Neo-Nazi Marchers On Shabbat

As white supremacists converged on a Charlottesville park for their violent “Unite the Right” rally, some of them menaced the city’s historic Beth Israel synagogue during Shabbat services, standing across from the building with semi-automatic weapons in their hands. “Had they tried to enter, I don’t know what I could have done to stop them, but I couldn’t take my eyes off them, either,” wrote Alan Zimmerman, the president of the Reform congregation, about the three neo-Nazis he stared down as congregants prayed inside.

Zimmerman, in an essay published on ReformJudaism.org, said that neo-Nazis marching past the building shouted hateful slogans like “Seig Heil,” the Third Reich’s “Hail Victory” shout. He added that the synagogue had retained an armed guard, after the Charlottesville police department failed to provide the synagogue with security on Saturday. The synagogue took other precautionary measures, due to calls on far-right Web sites for the building to be burned. Zimmerman said that he and the rabbis decided to remove the congregation’s Torah scrolls to a more secure location....

People should be able to worship without nonsense like this, but three unidentified people that dress up and spew nazi slogans also shouldn't be able to strike fear in a congregation of Jews in a country with a 2nd amendment. If the rabbis are fearful, this is exactly what the 2nd amendment is for- so the gentle can live without fear.

It's ugly, sad and frustrating to have one's tolerance tested by the intolerant, but it's not much different than what Al Gore's Westboro "Baptist" goons did to churches, funerals and such for more than ten years and there were far more than three of those goons. And it's that tolerance of speech, not our fear of it, that makes us American.

How much you want to bet that Zimmerman still can't imagine why anyone would want to own a firearm or be allowed to defend themselves?

Hopefully this is something of a mind-opening experience to bafflingly liberal American Jews.

American Jews have nothing to fear from conservatives. The left, on the other hand, is a different story. You think BLM is pro-Israel and not anti-Semitic? I doubt it.

These accusations are always reported as factual by the media too. But I think the typical American has heard enough lies and no longer believes this crap.
In a week or two, we will soon find out that this entire protest was started and attended by actors pretending to be white racists. The entire thing smells very staged.

Are they sure these were not leftists? So many fake hate crimes and unidentifiable effigies of Obama being hung out there.

I would have shot them on site. No money is out there to subsidize the white skin of someone, yet many liberal princesses out there support Manning getting is pride subsidized by my taxes for his sex change

Who would have ever thought that Nazis would intimidate Jews at worship?

They are just Nazi filth who traded in their Docs for Dockers.

Antifa flag hails from the Nazi National Bolshevicks

You are a bit too gullible Piasa. How come not a single pic? And if it did happen, much more likely that it was anti-semetic antifa thugs.

My husband is a Russian/Lithuanian Jew,and we lived in a community with former klansman who treated him decently with no prejudice,however what I find disturbing is the horrible amount of hatred that blacks have for Jews. The biggest reason is the Jewish lawyers that screwed them over,they think all Jews are in that category. I worked with many people of color that adored me but hated my Jewish husband,just because he was Jewish. I gave them lots of angry come to Jesus moments,and asked them what makes them any different than the Hitler's and Nazis of the world. It has gotten much worse,and liberal Jews are too stupid to know who their real enemy is.

Alan Zimmerman, the president of the Reform congregation
......
The key here is that Reform in this instance means liberal. And its posted in a liberal rag.

So maybe just because they guy is liberal testifying for a liberal rag—doesn’t mean the guy didn’t feel threatened.

The problem is that this is a perfect liberal story ... maybe too perfect—like something out of To Kill A Mockingbird.

But we’ll never know for sure.

Something is just strange and wrong with these stories
Who are these punks?
What do they have to do with Robert E Lee statues, free speech or Donald Trump , who has a religious Jewish daughter and family?

I’d like to see a concerted effort to research their identities
Something just nags at me they they are plants and provocateurs
They are WAY too obvious and WAY too out of place at these rallies
