Across the USA, Jews urged not to walk home from synagogue alone

This is what we have come to.

“US Synagogue network urges Jews not to walk home alone,” By Sam Sokol, Jerusalem Post, April 19, 2014 (thanks to Jack)

Following anti-Semitic shooting in Kansas, US Jewish community on high alert; Police increase presence at Jewish sites in New York and Washington.

The National Council of Young Israel has urged synagogue goers not to walk home alone during the final days of the Passover holiday.

The security precaution is one of several emailed to those affiliated with the national modern orthodox synagogue network this week in response to the recent shooting attack at a Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas.

Jewish community centers, synagogues and other institutions around the country boosted their security last week following the attack, in which Klansman Frazier Glenn Cross killed three people, including a teenage boy.

Police have increased their presence at Jewish sites in both New York and Washington and senior Jewish communal officials have consulted with both the FBI and Department of Homeland Security.

A nutjob shoots up a Jewish site in Kansas and we protect NYC and DC.

Oh yeah. In flyover country, Jews (and Gentiles) can defend themselves!

Obama hates the Jewish people, and his supporters know it and applaud him for his hate.

Our Secretary of Defense hates Israel, and our Secretary of State is doing everything in his power to back Israel into a corner, where her only option is destruction or war.

What utter nonsense. A mad man with a sick belief structure does not equate to massive anti-Semitism in the rest of the country or its citizens. There are those who have such hatred in their hearts but that is not the majority or even a sizable minority. This is the rank insanity of those stoking the flames of hatred

Sounds like a case could be made for more concealed carry permits to be issued.

I'm a member of a large Southern Baptist church located in the near-downtown area of a major American city. I have been at the church for one reason or another on Saturday mornings when the Jewish people in the area are walking to synagogue. Our church sets out water coolers in front of our very large worship center because the Jewish people can cut across our property right in front of the worship center and knock nearly a block off their journey.

The people I have observed are not people who would carry guns. Many of the men are old and tired, walking with the assistance of grandsons or younger sons.

I've wondered why we can't hire an off-duty city policeman or deputy sheriff to watch over the people who are trying to do nothing except going to worship. I'm going to make this a formal question to our church staff.

I don't think that guns are the answer. The coming together of American people to look out for one another is one of the best solution of all, I think. It's a shame we haven't gotten the message yet.

Oh dear God! My heart aches at this news. Christians should volunteer to escort them home and vow to stand with them against evil. To do less is to deny Christ. We are to be His hands and feet; let us also be His sight and strength to protect the Chosen People because we love them as Christ loves us. Let us be servants to Christ!

Sad, but there is a biger problem with the members of the ROP whose ideology considers Jews less than pigs.

Amen to that. Its time for everyone to stand in front of danger and show we wont be bullied.
Jews and Gentiles arm in arms.

This is sad, but in our Obamanation, no one should walk alone. Aspects of our culture have reverted back to gang tribalism. Our continued inability to tell the truth about what inclusion and tolerance are doing to us makes it impossible to solve problems. We have created a militant police state to deal with a militant, criminal culture.

“And I will make you [Abraham] a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and so you shall be a blessing; and I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse. and in you all the families of the earth will be blessed” (Genesis 12:2-3

The blessing to mankind promised by God has come true in the immensely valuable role played by Jews over their 4,000 year history in civilizing the world, in spite of the unbelievable hardships they have also endured.

With few exceptions, wherever they lived they were persecuted. Being "chosen" created an ethos wherein high achievement is treasured, as is the notion of tikkun olam, meaning chosen by God for the special responsibility of helping "repair a broken world" for the benefit of humanity.

Jews are so few in number that in a room of 1,000 people representing the world's population, only two would be Jewish, comprising a mere 1/4 of 1%. Yet they have won 29 percent of Nobel prizes since 1950, after the Holocaust destroyed a third of their numbers. They have been awarded 20 percent of the Pulitzer Prizes for nonfiction. One-fourth of the Fields Medals winners are Jews.

Of the 267 individual inventors on the Encyclopedia Britannica list of "Great Inventors,” more than 13 were Jews, Probably one-fourth of the greatest photographers of all time have been Jews, as have 10 percent of the world's great master architects. They have created nearly two-thirds of Broadway's longest running musicals and of movie directors who earned Oscars, 38 percent were Jews.

No other group of people donates as much to charity. More than 90 percent of their donations went to secular causes in support of education, health care and medicine, arts, culture, and the humanities.

Much better advice would come from the organization Jews For The Preservation of Firearms Ownership.

Imagine two Orthodox men, walking down the street, only to find themselves approached by a dozen “youths” intent on savaging them.

But unlike the typical event, both men pull out .45 ACPs. Suddenly the menacing “yoots” decide they would rather be at home watching The Brady Bunch reruns. The day is saved, and two Orthodox Jewish men continue on their way, unmolested.

What’s not to like?

So what’s the current count on American pogroms this weekend? How fear-stoked do we need to be?

"A mad man with a sick belief structure does not equate to massive anti-Semitism in the rest of the country or its citizens."

Ah, but the elite crowd who run this country have always been looking for excuses to yell "anti-Semitism". It's the most convenient of all their little catch phrases, in fact. On the one hand, they can "protect" a few photogenic sites in NY, DC, Chicago, and a few other cities and "prove" they're not like the great unwashed masses. On the other, they can use the "wide spread anti-Semitism" as an excuse for "being even handed" in the Middle East.

I was watching a documentary the other night (Who Shall Live Who Shall Die) the other night and one guy made a very interesting comment something like, "Jews weren't allowed in the clubs and restaurants FDR frequented so he said America was too anti-Semitic to accept Jews fleeing Germany even though not once in the history of the US has a Jew been lynched or murdered for being a Jew".

Maybe some people would argue that point, I don't know, but FDR projecting the prejudices of his own crowd onto the entire country is a very good point indeed. To this day the elite left in this country is antisemitic so they claim the whole country is.

One of the best movies made A Gentleman’s Agreement.... there are those who keep it hidden and in their back pocket for use whenever. I won’t argue that

The question I ask is, “why this HATE against the Jewish people” ?

Plus also Obama did not “applaud” this violent act in a direct way as his supporters “claimed” in his statement. That comes as a surprise.

It is clearly Satanic in origin and in character.

BINGO! We have a winner!

Also remember the enemy hates the Jews because it is from them that comes the Savior.
