Colorado Jewish gun store owner offers rabbis free rifles

The Jewish owner of a gun shop in Colorado has offered to give rabbis semi-automatic rifles for free following the murder of 11 worshippers at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. Mel Bernstein, who owns Dragon Arms near Colorado Springs, made the offer in an item aired Oct. 31 on KOAA-TV’s News5. During the shooting Saturday, “people sitting in the synagogue, they were sitting ducks,” and “nobody’s stopping him,” Bernstein said of the shooter. “You have to have the tool to fight back, and this is the tool, and I’m donating these to the rabbis.” Each gun that Bernstein hopes to give the local religious leaders is valued at an estimated $650, and the store was clear that each rabbi would have to pass a background check to take possession of the weapon.

Alyssa Milano Refuses to Speak at Next Women’s March, Cites Anti-Semitism

In an interview with The Advocate, a gay community magazine, Milano condemned Women’s March organizers Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory for supporting Louis Farrakhan. The Nation of Islam leader has routinely made misogynistic, homophobic, and anti-Semitic comments. “Any time that there is any bigotry or anti-Semitism in that respect, it needs to be called out and addressed. I’m disappointed in the leadership of the Women’s March that they haven’t done it adequately,” Milano said.

You mean they’re not already proficient? Muslim Migrants in Germany Need Anti-Semitism Classes – Council of Jews

The call for extra integration classes for migrants from the Middle East comes ahead of the 80th anniversary of “Kristallnacht” – a notorious pogrom during which Jewish homes and businesses were destroyed with the connivance of the Nazi authorities.

In an interview with Jüdische Allgemeine, the vice president of Germany’s Central Council of Jews, Abraham Lehrer, called for additional classes for migrants coming to Germany from Islamic societies in order to curb anti-Semitism.

Lehrer noted that most Muslims coming to Europe had been brought up in a society that expresses open hatred towards Jews and denies Israel’s right to exist. According to him, this anti-Semitism won’t just go away, but would return when migrants have fully settled down.

Twitter apologises after ‘Kill all Jews’ becomes a trending topic

Twitter has apologised after the phrase “Kill all Jews” appeared to a number of users.

The words came up as part of a trending topic on the site’s homepage, which meant that people were shown the violently antisemitic messages when they logged in.

The phrase had been posted because of an attack on a synagogue in New York, where the words were sprayed onto a wall in just the latest of a series of high-profile attacks on Jewish people.

The Pittsburgh Shooting and Islamic Apologists’ Cognitive Dissonance

On Saturday morning, a man named Robert Bowers entered the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh in the middle of a service and opened fire, killing eleven people while screaming “All Jews must die.” His Gab page showed that he hated President Trump as much as he hated Jews, not least because of Trump’s strong support for Israel.

Muslim leaders and Islamic apologists were quick to condemn the killings and anti-Semitism in general. This is all good, except that it entangles them in difficult contradictions.

“Globalist” Doesn’t Mean “Jew”

Liberal commentators try to equate all criticism of the international order with the anti-Semitism that motivated the synagogue murderer.

The massacre of 11 worshippers during Sabbath services at a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday was indisputably an act of anti-Semitic terror, and the most savage attack against American Jewry in its history. The killer, Robert Bowers, made clear on social media his belief that Jews are in control of the United States and are intent on destroying it by importing millions of Muslim immigrants. “There is no #MAGA,” posted Bowers, “as long as there is a kike infestation.” Curiously, Bowers’s insect metaphor echoed Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s recent comment that he is not in fact an anti-Semite, but an “anti-termite.” Though Bowers and Farrakhan probably don’t agree on much else, anti-Semites have a long history of representing the Jewish people as vermin and as underminers of cultural and national supports.

Understanding Pittsburgh through a Dopamine-Addict Lens

In the wake of the horrific murders in Pittsburgh, let me state – without any reservation whatsoever and as clearly as possible – that the shooter (unnamed so that his name may be forgotten) deserves the death penalty. And even more justly, the fate that awaits him afterward. To those that were killed, may you rest in peace, and to their families… I have no words that could rise to the occasion save to say the Mourner’s Kaddish.

Sweden’s Largest Party Mulls Stopping Its Youth Wing’s Funding Amid Islamization

Members of the Social Democrat Youth, once a talent pool that produced many prominent Social Democrat politicians, have called Islam a “universal solution,” expressed homophobic and anti-Semitic sentiments, and substituted the traditional Internationale anthem played at a party conference with an Islamic song.
