Before sun had even set on day that a white nationalist opened fired in #Poway synagogue, killing 1Jewish person at prayer & injuring 3 more, at least 3 Jewish men in positions of power & accountability were using the occasion to foment Islamophobia & their right-wing agendas 1/7
Dov Hikind is a NY State Assemblyman. Chip Roy is a Congressman from Texas. Mort Klein is head of the ZOA. Each tried to personally connect Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the first Muslim women in Congress, to this heinous attack. We need some accountability 2/7
They have constituents and institutions that they are accountable to and in relationship with. Every single Jewish institution, Jewish elected, and Jewish constituent needs to be calling them to account. Everyone else too, but these are our "community leaders" so it's on us 3/7

Yet another attack on the Jewish community. This time in #Poway. 💔

If you feel like there are far more anti-Semitic hate crimes happening, you are unfortunately correct.

I graphed hate crimes data collected by the FBI to quantify how bad it is. It's really bad. +37% in 2017.
Just in case you missed that: Attacks on Jewish people in the US went up 37% IN ONE YEAR from 2016 to 2017.

What. The. Fuck.
2018 data is not out yet. I hope 2017 was an outlier.

Every attack on a synagogue, church, mosque, any house of worship is an attack on us all, regardless of how we do or don’t pray, because hate and bigotry threaten us all. It sounds naive and too simple but that’s how it is. Hate threatens our humanity. Zero tolerance. #poway
I am sending my love and solidarity to Jewish friends. This attack on the last day of Passover is awful and I hope that you can find strength in the wishes so many of us are sending.
