Hogan, Northam and Bowser attend vigil at DC synagogue after shooting

April FrancisOct 30, 2018

The man accused in the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre appeared briefly Monday in a federal courthouse in a wheelchair to face charges that he killed 11 people in the attack.

"The first three people who took care of him were Jewish".

Cohen says Bowers then asked him who he was.

Two Tree of Life synagogue congregants stared down the alleged murderous anti-Semite who killed 11 Jews at their temple in federal court on Monday - and found him "underwhelming".

The alleged gunman, Robert Bowers, 46, who was wounded in a gunfight with police, made a stony-faced and largely silent appearance on October 29 in a federal courtroom, where he was ordered held without bond.

Some Jewish residents of Pittsburgh were expressing concerns about anti-Semitism long before their city experienced one of the deadliest attacks against the Jewish community in USA history.

Amidst the outpouring of support for residents of Squirrel Hill, PA., Quebec's Muslim community has also extended a hand to their Jewish neighbours.

"You know, it's poison for our democracy, its poison for our country and its negative to everybody not just that community", he said.

Two days earlier, the user had criticised President Donald Trump for being a "globalist, not a nationalist".

Poupko said Jewish people have always been targets of hate crimes, both in Canada and elsewhere, but he said they've never experienced anything like Saturday's mass shooting.

"The message I get from that is, yes, there is the possibility of hate in all people".

Putin: Russia Will Attack Any Country That Launches US Missiles
Given the country's repeated violations, Russian Federation already seems to have been liberated from those constraints. But Stoltenberg did not encourage the USA , the biggest and most influential member of NATO , to stay in the treaty.

Trump has continued to lash out at news organisations since the shooting, describing the media as being responsible for "great anger in our Country", comments he made the same day a third suspected explosive device was delivered to CNN in less than a week.

The shooting took place on Saturday and 11 people were murdered.

The shooting comes only days after a bomb was found by the US Postal Service addressed to George Soros, a Jewish billionaire businessman, investor and philanthropist who lives in NY.

"I wish I had known what was going on in his head", his neighbor Chris Hall told the Post-Gazette.

"We have a very strong leadership in this city, we have a very strong mayor with very strong values, a very strong county executive.we have people who stand by us, who believe in values, not just Jewish values.and those are not the values of this president".

"I can't even imagine what that family has been feeling since they lost their loved one in Pittsburgh", she said.

Bowers was also charged under state law with criminal homicide, aggravated assault and ethnic intimidation.

Bishop Joseph Bambera, Bishop chair of the Committee for Ecumenism and Interreligious Affairs for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, released the following statement regarding the violence in Pittsburgh. A crowdfunding campaign called Muslims Unite for Pittsburgh Synagogue raised more than $90,000 for survivors and families, while a fundraiser led by a graduate student in Washington had taken in almost $545,000 as of Monday morning, with funds to go to the congregation.

It's exactly what leaders say should be happening, despite the unimaginable violence in Pittsburgh.

Asked his reaction to seeing Bowers in person, Pushinsky said it was "not the face of villainy I thought we would see".
