San Diego Synagogue- Stop Hate Filled Ugliness

Hate showed its ugly face again last Saturday at Congregation Chabad in Poway, California, a community about 22 miles north of San Diego. Suspect John Earnest a 19-year-old student at California State University San Marcus, wearing sunglasses, pointed his automatic rifle at Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein. “I couldn’t see his eyes. I couldn’t see his soul,” said Goldstein. Earnest who had just shot 60-yearold Lori Kaye a close family friend proceeded to shoot at Rabbi Goldstein and shot off one of the Rabbi’s index fingers and severely wounded the other index finger.

The gunman killed Kaye and wounded three others - including an 8-year old girl and uncle who was visiting from Israel. Reports indicate the gun jammed and an off duty armed border patrol agent who had been invited by Rabbi Goldstein to always attend armed as a precaution chased after the shooter.

Earnest is also suspected in setting fire to an Escondido California mosque which just happened March 25th.

October 27 the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh was attacked. During Shabbat morning services 46-year-old shooter Robert Gregory Bowers killed eleven people and injured seven others.
