The gunman who murdered two people outside a German synagogue on the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur reportedly planned a “massacre” according to police; concealing upwards of nine pounds of explosives in his vehicle.
“The attack, with the gunman ranting about Jews and denying the Holocaust in English, was live-streamed on the online streaming platform Twitch. It apparently was filmed using a head-mounted camera, and showed the perpetrator driving up to the synagogue in a car packed with ammunition and apparent explosives,” reports Fox News.
The shooter shot and killed two people in the German city of Halle and injured nine others. He reportedly tried to enter the synagogue, but was unable to gain access.
“We have identified 10 Americans who were inside the synagogue at the time of the attack, all are safe and unharmed,” posted the US ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell.

Recently sworn-in Rep. Rashida Tlaib blasted GOP Rep. Steve Scalise Wednesday evening; accusing the lawmaker of “Islamophobia” after he demanded Ilhan Omar be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee for her anti-Semitic statements.
“Hard to watch Rep. Scalise demand that Rep. @IlhanMN be removed from House Foreign Affairs w/o wondering if it’s steeped in Islamophobia. Ilhan is more than capable of sitting on the committee & making decisions that are in the best interests of her constituents & all Americans,” posted Tlaib on social media.

BUSTED: DC Lawmaker Helped Finance Farrakhan’s Anti-Semitic RANT
A member of the Washington, D.C. city council helped finance the Nation of Islam’s Saviours’ Day event; the prominent rally that featured Louis Farrakhan’s three-hour long rant against the “Satanic Jew.”
According to the Washington Post, council member Trayon White Sr. instructed his team to make a $500 donation to the event; raising new questions over the Democratic party’s relationship to the notorious anti-Semite.
“The Brothers from the Nation are of the few men that show up to help . . . us address crime and social ills in Southeast. They also run a feeding program in several public housing communities in ward 8,” White wrote in a text message. “I’m a Christian but I support a lot of people and all religions who support my community.”
“He said to me, ‘I want you to make a payment to the Nation of Islam for Saviours’ Day,’ ” Darryl Ross, the treasurer, told the Post. “So I went on the website to get the information I needed in order to make the payment.”
