Pittsburgh synagogue massacre leaves 11 dead, 6 wounded

30 October 2018

Bowers, who is a long-haul trucker, told officers that Jews were committing genocide and that he wanted them all to die, according to the charging document.

Noting the terrorist's pointing out that link to the congregations, which included Tree of Life in Pittsburgh, the Times of Israel reported, "To mark the organization's personal involvement, at the back of the hall, information on volunteer opportunities in the refugee and immigration committees of participating synagogues and HIAS materials were available for attendees to take home, including a bookmark with the words 'My People Were Refugees Too'".

These critics claim that Trump, along with Lou Dobbs and other conservative commentators, is more or less consciously referencing the 1903 forgery Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and similar propaganda that propounds worldwide, malevolent Jewish domination.

"I'm in shock. I can't believe that happened", said Terry Choate, a retired government contractor who told the Post-Gazette he knew Bowers for almost the suspect's entire life. "When American citizens can not freely and safely worship in their house of worship and celebrate the Sabbath, it concerns me because it challenges the safety and security of all Americans in any house of worship".

Dhoni dropped from T20I squad; Parthiv, Rohit back for Oz Tests
India's Jasprit Bumrah was the wrecker-in-chief, picking four wickets for just 35 runs, while Kuldeep Yadav bagged two for 52. But Nurse smashed four boundaries and two sixes and turned the West Indies total from shaky to solid.

On Nov. 5, 2017, gunman Devin Patrick Kelley killed 26 people at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, before taking his own life after an armed civilian fired shots at him as he exited the sanctuary. He was charged late Saturday with 29 federal counts, including weapons offences and hate crimes. Just one look at the suspect's now deleted social media posts shows the hatred Robert Bowers, 46, spouted for Jews, with anti-Semitic rhetoric, Holocaust denial, and conspiracy theories of Jews destroying the planet. However, a rabbi-emeritus at the synagogue, Alvin Berkun, said guards - while used during the major Jewish holy days - were not on duty Saturday.

Officials say Robert Bowers was armed with a rifle and three handguns when he walked inside the Tree of Life synagogue during Sabbath services Saturday morning and opened fire, killing 11 people and wounding six in what is believed to be the deadliest attack on Jews in USA history.

"We are the people", Gearah Goldstein said as she opened Sunday's program. In the age of Trump, these awful forces feed off one another, just as they go hand in hand with racism, Islamophobia and transphobia. Thank God, she will survive her injuries. I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. We pray for the victims and their families. Six more people were injured.

In response to a question on whether tighter gun control laws could have prevented the attack, Mr. Trump said that gun control laws had "little to do" with it and suggested that had the synagogue been given better security, the situation could have been averted. "Protect the refugee", has since expanded its efforts to provide help to refugees around the world escaping persecution.

Rafale jitters: ‘Alok Verma could meet Judge Loya’s fate, SC must intervene’
Earlier, Congress Spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that Gandhi and other leaders were arrested from the CBI headquarters. The Congress alleged that it was because Verma had begun asking questions about the Rafale deal that he was removed.

As police bore down on the suspect he said to them: "I just want to kill Jews".

"It felt like an eternity", Myers said of waiting for help to arrive.

"The crisis is huge, and it's gotten worse over the last few years", says Swersey.

People attend a vigil on Sunday, Oct. 28, 2018, in Pittsburgh to remember the victims of the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue the day before.

Beto O'Rourke has spent $5 million on Facebook ads
There's a chance he can actually vote for Beto, being from Texas. "I think he has a lot of energy and will be good for us"'. Independents are leaning more toward O'Rourke in this particular race, so he may be seeing a slight bump as a result.

"You know, you're always anxious that something would happen", said Myron Snider, head of the cemetery committee for New Light Congregation, which meets at Tree of Life.
