    Federal authorities arrested a 27-year-old accused white supremacist who allegedly planned to bomb a synagogue in Colorado over the weekend. Richard Holzer had brought a knife and a mask to a motel room and was examining inert pipe bombs prepared by undercover agents moments before he was arrested late Friday night, according to a criminal complaint. He also said he paid a "witch doctor" $70 to put arsenic in the water pipes of the synagogue and "hex" the place last year, according to the complaint.

    BBC Video At least two people were shot dead on a street in the German city of Halle on Wednesday, police said, with witnesses saying that a synagogue was among the gunmen's targets as Jews marked the holy day of Yom Kippur.

"Early indications show that two people were killed in Halle. Several shots were fired," police said on Twitter, urging residents in the area to stay indoors. Police said the...

A deadly shooting broke out in the eastern German city of Halle on Wednesday afternoon, German police said, killing at least two people. The shooting took place in the city's Paulusviertel district near where a synagogue is located, police said. It remains unclear, however, whether the synagogue is related to the shooting, although it took place the same day as Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year in Judaism. Halle...

    A man suspected of opening fire at a Southern California synagogue last spring told a 911 operator in the moments after the shooting that he did it to save white people from Jews, according to a recording played Thursday at a preliminary hearing to determine if the case should proceed to trial. One woman was killed and three wounded in the shooting, which happened at the Chabad of Poway synagogue on the last day of Passover. “I’m defending our nation against the Jewish people, who are trying to destroy all white people,” John T.

    Monday on ABC’s “The View,” co-host Joy Behar called President Donald Trump the “culprit” in the rise of incidents like last weekend in California when a gunman opened fire in a synagogue, killing one and injuring three others. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, “So yet again it’s happened in this country, something horrible. Saturday a white nationalist allegedly opened fire in a San Diego synagogue killing one woman and injuring three others.

    The media has a memory for its own malfeasance measured in minutes. Even as the media suggests that conspiracy theories about Jews are the province of fringe alt-right crazies, here's a flashback conspiracy theory from Politico about Chabad, the Orthodox Chassidic Jewish group whose synagogue came under fire in the Passover attack. Politico, the same site behind DeSantis’ fifth “race-related” controversy, ran a smear piece targeting Chabad Chassidim, an Orthodox Jewish denomination, as “Trump’s kind of Jews”. Collateral damage for that one included a Rabbi in Long Island who had previously been in the news for the way that his...

    The man who fired a semi-automatic weapon inside the Chabad of Poway synagogue in San Diego on Saturday froze, dropped his gun and sprinted to his car when he saw Oscar Stewart come barreling toward him, yelling so loud the priest at a neighboring church could hear. Stewart, 51, told The Daily Caller on Sunday he doesn’t remember any conscious thought from the moment he heard the gun shots until it was all over — he just acted on instinct to stop the shooter and prevent him from leaving so he couldn’t hurt more people somewhere else. The Iraq combat...

    It was just minutes before the shooting when he saw the post. At 11:05 a.m. on Saturday, Colin, a 25-year-old in Yucaipa, California, logged into 8chan. It was only his second time ever on the site, he told BuzzFeed News. Someone close to him is a QAnon believer, and after hearing them spout "some really crazy shit," Colin went on the site out of curiosity. 8chan — an online message board full of white supremacists, conspiracy theorists, Trump fanatics, and violent trolls — was where the Christchurch mosque shooter first announced his plans for the attack. So, when Colin saw...

    Israeli politicians responding to the shooting at the Chabad Synagogue in Poway, San Diego, during Shabbat services tied it to a cartoon published by the New York Times which was accused of anti-Semitic themes. In the cartoon published on Thursday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is portrayed as a dog wearing a collar featuring a blue Star of David, guiding a “blind” President Donald Trump who is shown wearing a kippah (skullcap). Member of Knesset-elect Michal Shir stated on Sunday that “where hatred is being printed, hate crimes will be committed.” “Lori Gilbert Kay’s horrific anti-Semitic murder, while she was praying...

    Full Headline: Anti-Gunners Call For Gun Control Laws Following Poway Synagogue Shooting But This Is What They're Getting Wrong Every time some sort of mass shooting occurs, anti-gunners rush to call for stricter gun control laws. The San Diego County Sheriff's Department and the FBI are still investigating the shooting that took place earlier today at the Chabad of Poway Synagogue, just outside of San Diego. We don't even know all of the facts yet, but from what we do know, gun control laws anti-gunners want to push are either already on the books or would have made no difference.

    We never get tired of repeating it, especially when 2020 candidate Eric Swalwell tweets about guns and the NRA, but this is the guy who tweeted “it would be a very short war” if gun owners ever tried fighting gun confiscation, ’cause the government has legit nukes. Yes, his message to all those Second Amendment “extremists” out there clinging to their guns was to threaten them with even greater firepower. He really, really tries to come across as tough on social media and in cable TV appearances, but this guy really is a joke. Kamala Harris has already upstaged him...
