Pittsburgh synagogue: Violence ‘must end. Enough is enough!’

Westlake Legal Group pittsburgh-synagogue-violence-must-end-enough-is-enough Pittsburgh synagogue: Violence 'must end. Enough is enough!' Pittsburgh fox-news/us/religion/judaism fnc/us fnc Associated Press article 8231e560-b19a-514f-b039-b01f0d20daaf

The Pittsburgh synagogue that six months ago was the site of the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history offered its sympathy after another deadly shooting Saturday at a synagogue near San Diego, saying such violence “must end.”

“It was only six months ago to the day that we became members of that tragic club of community-based shootings to which no one wants to belong,” read the statement from Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue.

“We know first-hand the fear, anguish and healing process such an atrocity causes, and our hearts are with the afflicted San Diego families and their congregation. We will not give in to H(asterisk),” the statement read.

“We send our love and prayers to the Chabbad families,” it continued. “These senseless acts of violence and prejudice must end. Enough is enough!”

Meanwhile, Pittsburgh’s Public Safety Department said it was monitoring the situation and would increase security as necessary. It urged members of the public to remain vigilant and alert emergency officials if they saw anything suspicious.

“We understand this heartache all too well,” Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich said in a news release. “Our thoughts are with those in the San Diego area, and our actions locally are and will continue to be focused on keeping everyone safe.”

Authorities say John Earnest, 19, opened fire inside the Chabad of Poway synagogue Saturday as worshippers celebrated the last day of Passover, killing a woman and wounding the rabbi and two other people.

A person identifying themselves John Earnest posted an anti-Jewish screed online about an hour before the attack and cited the suspects accused of carrying out deadly attacks on mosques in New Zealand last month and at Tree of Life.

Eleven people died and seven were wounded in the shooting at Tree of Life on Oct. 27. Truck driver Robert Bowers, 46, of Baldwin, Pennsylvania, pleaded not guilty to carrying out the attack, during which authorities say he expressed hatred of Jews.

California authorities on Saturday said the mother and aunt of a “critically missing” 6-year-old were arrested for the boy’s murder.

Police in Apple Valley responded to a home on Thursday night after a family member asked “for a welfare check” on 6-year-old Duke Flores, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release.

Jakee Contreras, the boy’s mother, told deputies that he hadn’t “been seen for approximately two weeks,” prompting authorities to scour the area, the department said.

The mother was arrested and booked in a detention center for child neglect “for her delay in reporting him missing.”

The following day, detectives arrived at the scene and the search for the missing child continued, according to officials.

“Detectives gathered evidence and conducted multiple interviews throughout the day with family members,” the news release said.

Following an interview with Contreras on Saturday, she was booked for murder and held without bond, officials said. The same day, Jennifer Contreras, the boy’s aunt, was also arrested and booked for murder, according to the sheriff’s department. She is also held without bail.

“The investigation is ongoing and detectives are continuing the search for Duke Flores,” officials said.

New York state’s attorney general has begun an investigation into the National Rifle Association.

William A. Brewer, the NRA’s outside lawyer, said Saturday that the organization had received notice of an investigation from Attorney General Letitia James’ office. Brewer said the NRA “will fully cooperate with any inquiry into its finances.”

James, a Democrat, vowed during her campaign last year to investigate the NRA’s not-for-profit status if elected.

The NRA has clashed repeatedly with New York elected officials aiming to curb the organization’s influence.

The group filed a lawsuit last year against Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other state officials after New York fined insurance broker Lockton Cos. LLC $7 million for underwriting an NRA-branded insurance program called Carry Guard.

‘THIS MUST STOP’: Reaction to the synagogue shooting

Westlake Legal Group this-must-stop-reaction-to-the-synagogue-shooting 'THIS MUST STOP': Reaction to the synagogue shooting The Associated Press fox-news/us/religion fnc/us fnc Associated Press article a0fbf432-6553-5e51-ad2e-f4937bb4cec4

A gunman opened fire inside a synagogue near San Diego on Saturday as worshippers celebrated the last day of Passover, authorities said. The attack came exactly six months after 11 people were killed by a gunman at a Pittsburgh synagogue in October.

A sampling of reaction to Saturday’s shooting:

___

“THIS MUST STOP. We are heartbroken — and appalled and outraged — by the news of the attack at the Poway Synagogue near San Diego today. This must stop. It was only six months ago to the day that we became members of that tragic club of community-based shootings to which no one wants to belong. We know first-hand the fear, anguish and healing process such an atrocity causes, and our hearts are with the afflicted San Diego families and their congregation. We will not give in to H(asterisk). We send our love and prayers to the Chabbad families. These senseless acts of violence and prejudice must end. Enough is enough!” — Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue, site of the October shooting that killed 11, in a statement.

___

“This shooting is a reminder of the enduring virulence of anti-Semitism. It must serve as a call to action for us as a society to deal once and for all with this hate. People of all faiths should not have to live in fear of going to their house of worship. From Charleston to Pittsburgh to Oak Creek and from Christchurch to Sri Lanka, and now Poway, we need to say ‘enough is enough.'” —Jonathan A. Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, in a statement.

___

“There is absolutely no justification or explanation for such violence, and it is inconceivable that, yet again, innocent people have been targeted simply for their religion and for choosing to attend a place of worship. … There is no room for such hate-filled violence in our society. People of all faiths must stand together and declare that we will never tolerate such hatred.” —Ronald S. Lauder, president of the World Jewish Congress, in a statement.

___

“Now our thoughts are with the victims and their loved ones. But moving forward this must serve as yet another wake-up call that antisemitism is a growing and deadly menace. The Holocaust is a reminder of the dangers of unchecked antisemitism and the way hate can infect a society. All Americans must unequivocally condemn it and confront it in wherever it appears.” — Sara J. Bloomfield, director of the National Holocaust Memorial Museum, in a statement.

___

“My deepest sympathies go to the people that were affected — the families, the loved ones — by the, obviously, looks right now based on my last conversations — looks like a hate crime. Hard to believe, hard to believe. With respect to the synagogue in California near San Diego. We’re doing some very heavy research. We’ll see what happens, what comes up. At this moment it looks like a hate crime. But my deepest sympathies to all of those affected. And we’ll get to the bottom of it. It looks like the person was apprehended, no more danger. And law enforcement has done a fantastic job.” — President Donald Trump, speaking to reporters.

___

“Coming just six months after the horrific mass shooting at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, we are confronted with what appears to be another anti-Semitic attack. We all stand with the Jewish community against this act of hate.” — U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, on Twitter.

___

“California sends our deepest and heartfelt condolences to the friends and families of the victims of today’s shooting at the Chabad of Poway. … We join the Poway community in its grief and, together with all Californians, recognize the bravery and heroism of our first responders. … No one should have to fear going to their place of worship, and no one should be targeted for practicing the tenets of their faith.” — California Gov. Gavin Newsom, in a statement.

___

“Hate has no place in ANY community … least of all Poway. We will put our arms around each other and walk through this tragedy as the family we have always been and always will be.” —Steve Vaus, mayor of Poway, on Twitter.

Mexican immigration authorities say they have returned 104 migrants by plane to Honduras.

The flight back to Honduras on Saturday came amid pressure on Mexico from the government of President Donald Trump to clamp down on migration to the U.S.

Mexican officials are now sorting through a backlog of petitions for transit or humanitarian visas in southern Mexico. Frustrated by long waits for visas and overcrowding at shelters, many migrants are opting to continue north without Mexico’s blessing.

The National Migration Institute said that more than 600 Cuban nationals broke out of the Siglo XXI migration station in Tapachula, Chiapas on Thursday. The civil servants manning the station are unarmed, the institute said.

Cyclone Kenneth roars through Mozambique, kills at least 5

Cyclone Kenneth roared into Mozambique, killing at least five people and sending hundreds to seek higher ground as officials feared flooding and mudslides in the days ahead.

With 140 mph winds, Kenneth is the first hurricane strength cyclone to strike Mozambique in over 60 years and thousands more are feared to be affected by the aftermath of flooding. The BBC reported there are fears thousands may be trapped in remote villages with no way to get out

One woman was killed by a falling tree in Pemba, and two were killed on lbo Island, where 90% percent of homes have been destroyed. Another was killed in the Macomia district and details on the fifth death are unavailable.

WOMEN FORCED TO EXCHANGE SEX FOR FOOD AID AFTER MOZAMBIQUE CYCLONE, HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH SAYS

Nearly 700,000 people have been impacted by the cyclone, and AP says many have been left exposed and hungry with water levels rising.

“Aside from storm damage, the greatest risk will immediately be from flooding due to heavy rains. Rivers within this region of Mozambique may flood, especially as at least one of the dams is already close to full capacity, preventing flood water from being retained. This will make it almost impossible to distribute aid as roads will become impassable,” Marc Nosbach, country director for CAREMozambique, told Reuters.

In the Cabo Delgado province, 2,500 homes were destroyed and schools and health centers were damaged, according to Accuweather. Winds in Pemba gusted to 44mph, causing significant power outages in the area.

Rain is forecast over the next several days, and Mozambique’s meteorological authority said the storm could potentially move back out to sea and intensify again.

The government urged people to seek higher ground on Saturday, fearing flooding and mudslides created from the heavy rainfall.

“A flooding disaster can unfold in Cabo Delgado where Kenneth slammed onshore,” said AccuWeather senior meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski.

Before the cyclone hit, 30,000 people were evacuated to safer buildings such as schools, Reuters reported

OCEAN CHANGES AFFECTED DEADLY DUO OF MOZAMBIQUE CYCLONES

“The situation wasn’t worse thanks to awareness-raising work by local authorities,” said Mozambique’s disaster management agency.

The UN’s World Food Programme said it’s creating an “emergency preparedness plan” with the Mozambican government and other humanitarian groups.

Gore says an off-duty Border Patrol agent believed to be inside the synagogue shot at the suspect as he fled. The sheriff says the agent didn’t hit him but struck his car.

San Diego Police Chief David Nisleit says the 19-year-old suspect called police to report the shooting and a California Highway Patrol officer heard it on a police scanner, saw the suspect and pulled him over.

The shooting came on the last day of Passover and exactly six months since a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue killed 11 people.

Man who tossed daughter off bridge asks for new trial

A Florida man found guilty of first-degree murder for dropping his 5-year-old daughter off a bridge four years ago is asking for a new trial.

John Jonchuck was sentenced to life in prison earlier this month, despite arguments from his attorneys that he was legally insane. No one disputed the 29-year-old Jonchuck dropped his daughter Phoebe 62 feet (18 meters) into Tampa Bay in January 2015, and that he had a long history of mental problems.

Prosecutors argued that Jonchuck was driven by vengeance and planned to kill his daughter to keep her away from her mother and grandmother.

The Tampa Bay Times reports the motion that was filed Friday argues several decisions made by the trial judge were improper or unfair to Jonchuck.

Westlake Legal Group 5b933f56190000350e503ae7 New York Times Apologizes For Antisemitic Cartoon In International Edition

The New York Times’ international edition on Saturday retracted and apologized for an anti-Semitic editorial cartoon that appeared in the newspaper’s opinion pages two days earlier.

“A political cartoon in the international print edition of The New York Times on Thursday included anti-Semitic tropes,” read an editor’s note the paper said would be printed in Monday’s edition.

“The image was offensive, and it was an error of judgment to publish it. It was provided by The New York Times News Service and Syndicate, which has since deleted it.”

The cartoon pictured Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a dog on a leash held by President Donald Trump; anti-Semites commonly compare Jewish people to dogs or pigs. Netanyahu’s likeness included the Star of David, and Trump is shown wearing a skullcap and sunglasses, as if he were blind.

The paper’s misstep sparked outrage among Jewish advocates, many of whom pointed to the documented rise in anti-Semitism and hate crimes around the country

“Apology not accepted,” the American Jewish Committee, an advocacy organization, said on Twitter. The group called the cartoon “naked antisemitism” and said it would “not look out of place on a white nationalist website.”

HuffPost reached out to the Anti-Defamation League, another large Jewish advocacy group, but did not immediately receive a response.

The cartoon’s publication comes amid a heated controversy over the definition of anti-Semitism, with many Republican and conservative leaders frequently condemning criticisms of Israel as anti-Semitic.

The Times’ apology also coincided with what appears to be a hate crime in San Diego County, California, where a 19-year-old gunman opened fire at a synagogue during a Passover celebration, killing one woman and injuring three other people.
