These critics claim that Trump, along with Lou Dobbs and other conservative commentators, is more or less consciously referencing the 1903 forgery Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and similar propaganda that propounds worldwide, malevolent Jewish domination.

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto said, "He had sought out this one synagogue because of activities they had done working with refugees and immigrants".

Calling the shooting an "evil anti-Semitic attack", Trump ordered flags at federal buildings throughout the U.S.to be flown at half-staff in respect for the victims. He said he planned to travel to Pittsburgh, but offered no details. Eleven people lay dead or dying inside the synagogue as the gunman switched between assault rifle and his three handguns, descending into the basement and back to the first floor.

"It was a very diverse community", Abravanel said.

"I would like to see anyone be able to achieve their dreams, and that's what this organization does", Brin said. Bowers has been hospitalised in fair condition with multiple gunshot wounds.

He did not have a criminal record and was not known to police, law enforcement officials said on Saturday. We must work together to eradicate this evil by a policy of zero tolerance for anti-Semitism.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver is hoping the community continues to show support for the victims. Authorities in New York City, Chicago and elsewhere increased security at Jewish centers.

Worshippers "were brutally murdered by a gunman targeting them simply due to their faith", said Bob Jones, head of the FBI's Pittsburgh office, though he cautioned the shooter's full motive was not yet known.

There are almost six million Jews in the United States and almost 400,000 in Canada.

Using a slur for Jews, he said, "There is no #MAGA, as long as there is a k-- infestation".

Apparently this festered with the terrorist, because just a few hours before he walked past those brochures and started murdering people at Tree of Life, he posted to a right-wing social media site, "HIAS likes to bring invaders in that kill our people". At that time, I had heard the word "kike", but I thought that this frightful epithet that Mr. Bowers would later use to describe my people was a relic from the past. "Screw your optics, I'm going in", said the post on Gab.

In the second half of the 19th century, HIAS worked to help Jewish people fleeing violence and persecution all over the world.

The US is witnessing a sharp spike in anti-Semitic incidents, surging 57% from 2016 to 2017, to 1,986 from 1,267, according to the Anti-Defamation League, a civil rights group that has tracked anti-Semitism in the country since the 1970s.

"We see a rise in this anti-Semitism, we have to all unite and stand strong", said Rabbi Raskin. "And we all pray for the speedy recovery of the wounded".

Eleven candles were lit as the names of each victim was read out loud, followed by a prayer. A chant of "vote, vote, vote" broke out during the emotional gathering. Sunday evening, there were about 150 united in Lakeland to take a stand against the senseless killing of those worshippers.

Chris Hall, a 28-year-old neighbor told AFP he felt "awful", adding: "I didn't know that type of caliber of person could be living right next door without any clue of what any motive he would have, and who could do something like this". He called for the imposition of the death penalty for "crimes like this".

Republicans, including the president, have recently accused Democratic party donor and philanthropist George Soros, who is Jewish, of backing, among other events, the caravan of Central American migrants heading toward the USA border.

Brodowsky says what happened Saturday inside the Pittsburgh synagogue is "our worst nightmare". He was met with a police presence when he tried to flee the scene, ultimately re-entering the synagogue and barricading himself inside before surrendering.

Facebook makes it easier to see political spending activity
As the so-called migrant caravan makes its way north, national attention has shifted to the US border with Mexico once again. Trump called O'Rourke "a stone-cold phony" and a "radical, open borders left winger".
