Rabbi Shmuley Boteach denounced Biden’s and Obama’s statement against Trump
On Saturday morning a Trump-hating Nazi Robert Bowers opened fire in Pittsburgh Tree of Life synagogue killing eleven Jews in a horrific attack.
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach denounced Biden’s and Obama’s statement this morning for legitimizing the Jew-hating Iranian regime.
Hatred of the Jews it springs up almost anywhere and everywhere. It’s the world’s oldest most insidious, most malicious hatred. But what we dare not do is politicize it. When I look at someone like Joe Biden, I just saw on your airwaves he was speaking about Charlottesville, etc. With all due respect, the Obama administration also legitimized Iran, who spoke openly about annihilating the Jewish people. And did not once condemn that kind of genocidal rhetoric we’ve seen from Hamas as well.
The attack has, so far, left 11 people dead and many more injured after the gunman opened fire while yelling “all Jews need to die” at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh.
After authorities named the alleged shooter as 46-year-old Robert Bowers, his social media posts show a history of anti-Semitic content and attacks on President Trump.
The bio on one of his now-suspended accounts read: “Jews are the children of Satan.”
Before the attack on Saturday morning, Bower criticized refugee aid group Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) and said he couldn’t “sit by and watch my people get slaughtered”.
“Screw your optics, I’m going in,” he wrote in his final post.
