6 months since the deadliest Antisemitic attack in US history in Pittsburg, the Jewish community is devastated by another attack, this time at the Chabad of Poway, near San Diego, leaving 1 dead and several injured, including children.
The suspect, a 19 year old man, allegedly summed up his motivations thusly: “the Jews are seeking to destroy the White race” - ie, White Genocide theory, a primary tenet of White Supremacist ideology.
This same ideology motivated the shooter in Pittsburg and New Zealand. White Nationalism is an international threat to our communities.
Anyone who gives oxygen to antisemitic ideas - whether they do so on the political Left or Right - is complicit in creating a climate that puts Jewish lives in danger.
We have to disrupt these ideas wherever we find them: whether from our elected officials, the media, our friends, family, colleagues...
In times like these, as our hearts break for the victims, we can feel helpless.

But we are NOT helpless. Here is 1 thing you can do RIGHT NOW:

Urge Congress to Pass the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act

At this time, it is also imperative to center the voices of the impacted community. Please make sure you are elevating Jewish voices and taking the lead of the Jewish community.
Reach out to your Jewish friends and neighbors right now. Express your solidarity. Offer support. Be an ally.
Here is a list of Jewish voices to help amplify. A thread:
Over the last decade, roughly 3/4 of all domestic terrorism was committed by rightwing extremists.
Of these acts of right-wing extremist murder, roughly 3/4 were committed by White Supremacists, who represent the single greatest domestic terrorism threat.

This ideology is growing. White Supremacists have increased their propaganda efforts 182% in 2018. Our report: adl.org/news/press-rel…
Unfortunately, the #SanDiegoSynagogue shooting is just the latest act of antisemitic murder. Our newest tool - the HEAT Map - plots acts antisemitic and other acts of extremism and terrorism across the US. adl.org/heat-map
Between 2016-2018, there were over 3200 antisemitic incidents across the US.
But Antisemitism is a global phenomenon. Here is partial list of select antisemitic incidents from around the world in 2019: adl.org/resources/repo…
Like the White Supremacist murderers in New Zealand & Pittsburgh, the #SanDiegoSynagogueShooting killer was radicalized on online communities like 8Chan, which function like 24/7 hate rallies inciting members to violence. Our analysis on online extremism: adl.org/resources/repo…
