  • Trump condemns 'horrible' anti-Semitism

    US President Donald Trump has condemned dozens of violent threats made against US Jewish community centres in the past few weeks.
    "We have to fight bigotry, intolerance and hatred in all of its very ugly forms," he said while visiting an African-American museum in Washington.
    "The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centres are horrible and painful", he said.
    The FBI is investigating following more threats on Monday.
    The president also spoke out against racism during his remarks at the end of a tour of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in the nation's capital.
    Last week, 27 Jewish community centres in at least 17 US states reported receiving hoax bomb threats. On Monday 11 more were made across the country.
    No bombs were found at any locations, and normal services resumed following building evacuations.

    Police in the state of Missouri have opened an investigation after more than 170 headstones were damaged at a Jewish cemetery in St Louis, Missouri, on Monday evening.
    Governor Eric Greitens posted a statement on Facebook calling the vandalism "despicable" and "a cowardly act".
    In the Canadian city of Toronto, Mayor John Tory has condemned anti-Semitic hate notes left outside the homes of Jewish residents.

    Mr Trump's daughter Ivanka - who has converted to Judaism and whose husband is Jewish - also condemned the threats.
    Since the beginning of the year, there have been reports of threats to centres in New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Florida, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Delaware, Connecticut, Alabama, California, Maine, Tennessee, South Carolina, Missouri, Wisconsin, Texas and Kansas.
    The JCC Association of North America, which has received many of the threats, has since been reviewing its security plans.
    "We will not be cowed by threats intended to disrupt people's lives or the vital role Jewish community centers play as gathering places, schools, camps, and fitness and recreation", the JCC said in a statement on Monday.

      Jews are passť. If you are not pro-islam you are a bigot.

        The question is-- is all this vandalism being done by Muslims or by right wing neo-Nazis? Either side of the political spectrum could be doing it.

          Or a typical, old school, dyed-in-the-wool anti-Semite.

            Or--"all of the above" since I doubt that it's a planned, coordinated campaign.

              I doubt that its Muslims, and neo-ratzis are a offshoot from the left...

                  I've never met neo-Nazis. Outside of the SLPC they are extremely thin on the ground. Oddly enough, the Aryan Brotherhood and Circle, for all their Nazi mannerisms, do not worry themselves with Jews.

                  Anti-Semitism is a lefty thing, IME. Particularly when it is aimed at the more conservative portions* of the faith.

                  * = I do not know what the correct term is for the various variations of the Jewish faith. Is 'sect' appropriate?

                    Hey, Bobo was being loyal to his base. You can't bow to Saudi nobility and buddy up with the Jews. Wouldn't be prudent.

                      AB's are hardly a threat to the public given that most of them are in prison and will never get out of prison...

                        Yeah seeing that getting three of them to agree on anything is damn near impossible...

                          Actually, they are spreading into a sizeable OC group outside of prison. In Texas & the Caliban they are recruiting from non-prison types, and are heavy into the drug and entertainment trade.

                          Their recruitment approach is that join now, and when you get to prison you will have friends. Pretty effective.

                            Like I said, liberal types...

                            On welfare and food stamps. Because who'd hire a moron? And that's what those people are. Morons.

                              That's mostly feeder gangs rather than AB's themselves. Same goes for EME or most 1% biker gangs like the Hell's Angels.

                              A typical one might be Soldiers of Aryan Culture. That one is big in Utah and parts of Arizona. They move up to being AB's through violence mostly.
