Yesterday morning world Jewry was cast into mourning after 19yr old John Earnest killed one and injured three at the Poway synagogue in California.

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the attacks. ”I condemn the abhorrent attack on a synagogue in California; this is an attack on the heart of the Jewish people. We send condolences to the family of Lori Gilbert-Kaye and our best wishes for a quick recovery to the wounded.”

Israel President Reuven Rivlin expressed his grief. ”Shocked and grieved by the murderous attack at Chabad of Poway, CA yesterday on the Jewish community during Pesach, our holiday of freedom. This is yet another reminder that Antisemitism is still with us. Our hearts are with the Gilbert Kaye family and with the whole community.”

US President Donald Trump expressed his expressed solidarity with the victims and their families. ”Thoughts and prayers to all of those affected by the shooting at the Synagogue in Poway, California. God bless you all. Suspect apprehended. Law enforcement did outstanding job. Thank you!”

The First Lady Melania Trump also offered her condolences. ”On this last day of Passover, I was heartbroken to hear of another senseless shooting in a place of worship. My heart & prayers go out to all affected in the community.”

Democratic Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders condemned the attack.”Another horrific shooting at a place of worship, today at the Poway Synagogue in San Diego County. We must work every day to eradicate all forms of hatred and bigotry, and take serious action to protect Americans from gun violence.

Killed in the attack was sixty-year-old Lori Gilbert-Kaye, and the three injured were Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, Almog Perez and his 8yr old niece who were visiting from Israel.

The authorities are looking into an online manifesto published by Earnest on the 8chan messaging board approximately two hours before he carried out the deadly shooting.
