Off duty Border Patrol stops the carnage.

Last day of Passover services.

RIP.

Nineteen year old white male...yeah, great details there. Get ready to get all the blame, I mean, all of the tens of millions of America firearms owners who DIDN'T shoot anyone at the synagogue.

My wife attends a synagogue in Plano and we always have an LEO inside the only entry door open during services and Sunday School. I also carry concealed. It amazes me that any synagogue these days does not have LEO stationed inside.

The article says the nutcase was wearing a 'tactical vest' & a helmet. It's not clear if 'tactical vest' = 'body armor'.

The article also says the nutcase may have had a malfunction, which may have limited the casualty count. I'm wondering if the off duty Border Patrol agent's rounds may have came quickly enough to prevent the attack from progressing, & if possibly a round or two hit the idiots weapon causing damage/malfunction. Just an early morning pontification on my part.

There is a concerted effort in the media and on college campuses to normalize anti-Semitism under the guise of anti-Zionism. It is time to rachet up the efforts to combat this heinous situation.

Kid studying to be a nurse up and decides to 1) commit arson on a mosque, and 2) shoot up a synagogue. This sounds like an ego driven copy-cat rather then someone with actual political beliefs/agenda. I wonder if we're going to hear in the coming days that he's been on the same kinds of anti-depressants that some of the previous mass shooters were on?

“This was heard from the rabbi’s sister this morning:

The rabbi credits the Aibishter - the Almighty - with performing a miracle in limiting the devastation at the Chabad shul - the synagogue in Poway, CA.

Rabbi Goldstein was just emerging from the bathroom where he went to wash and prepare for the Passover Yizkor service - a memorial for deceased close relatives performed four times a year - when he encountered the murderer. It is customary for those with two living parents to leave the sanctuary at this time, so the foyer of the synagogue was crowded with children and young adults.

Rabbi Goldstein emerged just as Lori Gilbert-Kaye fell to the ground, dead. He grabbed the muzzle of the killer’s rifle and was shot - the rabbi lost two fingers. The gun jammed. An off-duty police officer who was in the shul to say Yizkor, grabbed the rifle. The killer ran out of the building. The officer chased him and managed to shoot his vehicle. The killer was apprehended by local police minutes later.

The rabbi shepherded children and congregants to a safe space. There he spoke to them from his heart, urging them to be proud Jews, grateful to live in a country that protects our religious freedom. We will not be cowed, and we will search for the hidden light that will emerge from this tragedy. Then he was taken to the hospital, and endured hours of surgery on his hands.

On a news program later, Rabbi Goldstein reported that Lori was a founding member of the shul, his dear friend and supporter for 30 years, a true Aishes Chayil - woman of valor - who was always there for others.

The rabbi’s sister Toby reflected that but for the rabbi’s action the killer might have easily slaughtered many more Jews in the foyer. He is a hero.

May God bless Rabbi Goldstein, the officer who helped him, all the officers who apprehended the murderer, and every person who stands up against Jew-hatred in our great nation.

The rabbi asks us to perform deeds of kindness now, to create light out of this darkness. Please heed his call. And let’s say Amen.”

The Passover Massacre and Anti-Semitism in America
Courage and bravery in the face of murderous hate in a small city in California.
In a fractured society, anti-Semitism is a language shared by a Neo-Nazi like John Earnest and an Islamist like Rep. Omar and the leftists in the mainstream media. Jewish conspiracy theories are ancient, but are still kept alive by diverse fanatics who use them to make sense out of a chaotic multicultural landscape.
No amount of dead Jews would have saved Earnest from seeing the emptiness in the mirror. Just as no amount of dead Israelis will reconcile the contradictions of Islam and rebuild the Caliphate. Hitler and Stalin couldn’t make socialism work no matter how many Jews they killed. And no matter how many Jewish children he drowned, an ancient Pharaoh could never escape the fact that he wasn’t a god.
The end of Passover marks the splitting of the sea. As the waters parted, the Jewish slaves fled into the depths, expecting death, as the Egyptian armies closed on them. In the hall of Chabad of Poway, a few Jews fled, bleeding, with children in their arms, expecting death. Instead, miraculously, they were saved
