Posted on 10/29/2009 9:02:40 AM PDT by Cinnamon Girl
Los Angeles police say two Jewish men in their 30s were shot in the legs as they were about to enter a synagogue in the North Hollywood section of Los Angeles Thursday morning. A man described as an African-American with a handgun entered the Adat Yeshurun Valley Sephardic synagogue at about 6:20 a.m. Thursday and opened fire. The victims were taken to a hospital in stable condition.
Police are investigating the shooting as a hate crime. The Los Angeles Times says police arrested a man near the synagogue, but the sources say they don't believe he was the gunman.
The newspaper adds that police officials have alerted other synagogues around Los Angeles about the shooting, and police have stepped up patrols at Jewish religious institutions. Detectives are trying to determine if the gunman acted alone or as part of a larger group.
"Grave and shocking" Minister of Information and Diaspora Yuli Edelstein called the event grave and shocking.

Revenge for the Detroit Muslim Inman/terrorist shooting?
LA Time is reporting that the two victims are Jewish. Gee, I wonder if this is the militant Amish at work again.
Is the correct term for this shooter African American or African Muslim?
The shul is North Hollywood. A little after 6am this morning, two men were shot in the legs as they were entering the synagogue.
We live right near there. My daughter goes to the girls school not far away. Two squad cars were near the girls school.
Police say they are treating this as a hate crime until they can establish otherwise. PC nonsense aside, that would mean that they are treating it as a possible muslim rage type situation and patroling other Jewish buildings.
Nope, victims white, perpetrator black. Can’t be a hate crime.
My first thought. That’s their mindset.
God be praised, no deaths from this.
Will this open the eyes of the Hollywood Jewish community?
Thanks to our new anti-semitic Totus, it is now open season on jews in America.
I hope the police haven’t acted stupidly.
Well, they did just pick up a black man even though they only had the vague description that the shooter was “black and wearing a hoodie.” That sounds racist. I didn’t even hear that the guy they picked up was wearing a hoodie.
But Zero does not consider this a hate crime because they are Jewish ... hmmm.
Well, on the one hand, I think it’s good if they treat all hate crimes equally. On the other hand, I find the idea of “hate crime” questionable, especially since it is usually biased by political correctness.
If the shooters were motivated by Muslim hatred of Jews, then it should be up to the media to bring that fact out. Also for the jury to take it into account, if they choose, as a contributing factor. It would suggest that the crime was premeditated, for one thing. But in fact the media will predictably cover it up, and a liberal judge will probably instruct the jury to ignore it. That’s the problem with “hate crime”—it usually becomes such a PC matter.
White on black is hate; black on white is a result of difficult childhood. And Muslim motives are unmentionable.
We have to do something about these crazy Quakers
Human Rights Activist, Pamela Gellar, documented the sheer anti-Semitism on "the Messiah's" website: HERE
Yup, and those very same jews voted for the turd. When will they ever learn?
Certainly, graver and more shocking than if it were a love crime.
That CAN'T be.
ONLY angry white men do such things, and we all "know" that most crimes are committed by this same group...
just ask Brinks/Broadview security alarm company. /sarc
Good thing that most gangsta muslim-wannabees shoot as well as they swim. :)
Oh gee whiz. I guess it's Miller Time at the White House again.
If this were to become a common problem, I would be attending synagogue. I’m not Jewish, but I wouldn’t stand by and watch them attacked like this without my support.
I may not like some people, but it’s not my place to go gunning for them on the city streets. And I find it troubling that the climate would be such that anyone would think this action to be acceptable.
And for the record, Jews are not a part of that ‘some people’, just in case anyone wondered.
Any rational person would think it would. But let’s remember how liberal, in general, the Jewish community is.
More likely than not, even if this ends up being a ROP issue, there will be no epiphany for this group. Sad.
Thanks for the links. She runs that website Atlas Shrugged and she is very good at what she does.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
As to jurys, there's the Seattle Jewish Federation shooting. Muslim guy who hates Jews and Israel plans an attack over a period of weeks, purchases weapons, trains with them, secrets them, then carries out his attack, killing one and wounding five. Fifteen counts of various degrees of murder and attempted murder, the jury agreed on only one. First degree murder, not guilty, hung on the rest. Who knows, maybe he'll be tried again one day.
Hate crime, not charged, but the prosecutor did bring it up publicly, which is why he was not charged with various terrorism offences. Lucky for him, those charges would have been federal.
It looks like Obama’s racists are getting all wee-weed up with dear leader in power. Someone shot at Lou Dobbs house, too. His enemies would be Left wing hispanic racists who are angry over him expressing opposition to illegal immigration.
I hope this is not the beginning of something bigger. Prayers up for the victims of this hate crime and their community.
