    BBC Video At least two people were shot dead on a street in the German city of Halle on Wednesday, police said, with witnesses saying that a synagogue was among the gunmen's targets as Jews marked the holy day of Yom Kippur.

    Last week, the nation joined in a chorus of condemnation when a self-avowed white nationalist killed one woman and wounded three other worshippers at the Chabad of Poway, Calif. It was a senseless anti-Semitic hate crime that deserved to be condemned without reservation. A week later, four Israelis, including one Bedouin, were killed and 10 others were wounded by rocket fire from Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists in Gaza that rained down on their streets, homes and places of work.This time, many of the same voices that were so loud about Poway and the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh last October...

    It was just minutes before the shooting when he saw the post. At 11:05 a.m. on Saturday, Colin, a 25-year-old in Yucaipa, California, logged into 8chan. It was only his second time ever on the site, he told BuzzFeed News. Someone close to him is a QAnon believer, and after hearing them spout "some really crazy shit," Colin went on the site out of curiosity. 8chan — an online message board full of white supremacists, conspiracy theorists, Trump fanatics, and violent trolls — was where the Christchurch mosque shooter first announced his plans for the attack. So, when Colin saw...

    I don’t care what this demented young man claims. I don’t care how much scripture he can quote or how much Christianese he uses. The man is not a Christian. And I can say that on the authority of the New Testament. Jesus Himself deplores such heinous, murderous, cowardly acts.How can I be so sure?Jesus taught us to judge a tree by its fruits.James (actually, Jacob) wrote that we must prove our faith by our works and that faith without accompanying works was dead.And John (Yochanan in Hebrew) said that “no murderer has eternal life abiding in him” (1 John...

    CNN political commentator and pro-Russian Congressman Dana Rohrbacher aide Tara Setmayer has been a diehard Never Trump while supposed still claiming to be a conservative, Republican, or something along those lines. But like almost cable news Republicans, she’s lurched leftward. On her October 30 podcast, she hypocritical lectured listeners that “words matter” and “we have to be better” while bashing Fox News for being a network that “jerks the President off every single day” and is filled with “political masturbation.” She also suggested that anyone who supports the President or any of his policies might as well support murderous drug dealers. ...

    Glick said, “It would’ve been good if the Jewish community in the United States and the national leadership, instead of pronouncing these milquetoast things that we all need to be more civil in our tone, would say, ‘No, we have to be less civil to anti-Semites. We have to be less civil to people who want to annihilate the Jewish people [and] the Jewish state.'” Glick added, “But what we’re finding, particularly among left-wing Jews is that they’re using it to attack the administration and trying to conflate the Nazi who committed this massacre with President Trump. Obviously, nothing could...

    As a Jew who attends synagogue every Shabbat, and as an advocate for the carrying of concealed weapons, I fervently pray we will not need armed guards at American synagogues. America's uniqueness has been exemplified by the fact that Jews do not need armed guards in their synagogues. May it always be so. Even if you don't love Jews -- if you only love America -- you need to fight anti-Semites. As the Jews go, so goes the fate of the nation in which they live.

    A slew of Hollywood celebrities rushed to social media on Saturday to heap blame on President Donald Trump, his supporters, and lawful gun owners mere moments after a shooter opened fire at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. “As an American Jew I feel nauseous. And if you support Donald Trump you should too because this shit is on YOU. IT’S YOUR FAULT,” actor Ike Barinholtz wrote. “Remember that tonight as you’re trying to go to sleep.”

    The Left and our good, sweet, sincere friends in the media spent most of Saturday after the tragic shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue trying to find a way to blame Trump for the monster who killed 11 innocent people and wounded six others. Even though the gunman reportedly hated Trump and blamed him for supporting the Jewish people, somehow, someway Trump was labeled an anti-Semite. We know, it's stupid. Rich Lowryb✔ @RichLowry What’s even the theory supposed to be that Trump is an anti-Semite? 3:42 PM - Oct 27, 2018 Well, Trump beat Hillary … that’s enough doncha...

Reporter Salena Zito claimed she was verbally attacked by a Guardian reporter, later identified as Mike Elk, who got in her face, called her an anti-Semite while blaming her for the Pittsburgh Synagogue massacre on Saturday because of her reporting on President Trump. Elk demanded she leave the scene near Synagogue where the press was gathered, according to Zito. Elk and Zito are both Pittsburgh natives who have achieved a national audience (of disparate reach and reputation) for their reporting. Zito posted to Twitter a photo of Elk with the caption, “In middle of a...

In the last few days, we have been treated to the following events: A Florida man who sent caricatures of bombs to prominent leaders of the far left, and A man (or pair of men), one who has been identified as a #NeverTrump, rabidly Jew hater, who killed 8 at a Pittsburgh synagogue. Two violent events, only two weeks before a crucial...

This on social media from the Times. 11 fatalities, no children in Pittsburgh shooting, authorities announce. 6 injured, including 4 police officers, but not the shooter.— Trip Gabriel (@tripgabriel) October 27, 2018 Our prayers for all the victims’ family and friends.***We previously noted there were suggestions that the shooter’s social media accounts contained blatant antisemitic threats. That’s been confirmed now as the NY Post reports. The man who killed eight people at a Pittsburgh synagogue was a virulent anti-Semite who apparently posted, “Screw your optics. I’m going in,” just hours...

    Video at link. "It's a very horrific crime scene, one of the worst that I've seen," Pittsburgh public safety director Wendell Hissrich told a news conference near the scene. "This falls under hate crime," he said, adding there was no active threat to the community and that the shooter had been taken to a hospital. KDKA television cited police sources as saying the gunman walked into the building and yelled “All Jews must die.” A federal law enforcement official told Reuters that at least 8 people were killed.
