The “Politics” Of Shooting Jews

David Bernstein posted the following statement on his Facebook page, and I endorse it completely.

If you are about to make a politicized statement about the synagogue shooting, stop. There was a shooting at a LA JCC [Jewish Community Center] in 1999, at the Seattle Jewish Federation in 2006, at the Holocaust Museum in 2008, and at a Kansas City JCC in 2014. Unfortunately, there is nothing special about a shooting at an American Jewish institution in 2018. Fortunately, the death toll in each of these was lower, but not because the shooter’s intent was less deadly. The only appropriate “political” statement right now is to condemn anti-Semitism, whether it emanates from the left or the right.

Say What?
