This is not surprising. The establishment media in the UK, as well as in Western Europe and North America, is hell-bent on making President Trump appear as bad as possible. They’re predictably even blaming this massacre on him, despite the fact that he is the most pro-Israel President the United States has had since the founding of the State of Israel. Robert Bowers hated Trump and made that hatred quite clear in his social media postings. However, all the BBC says about Bowers’ views here is that his posts were “full of anti-Semitic comments.” Yes, like another man who hates both Jews and Trump: Leftist hero Louis Farrakhan.
“Pittsburgh shooting: Multiple casualties at Squirrel Hill synagogue,” BBC, October 28, 2018:
Eleven people have been killed, officials say, in a gun attack on a synagogue in the US city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The gunman, who opened fire as the Tree of Life synagogue held a service, was later taken into custody.
President Donald Trump said “a lot of people” had been killed and injured in a “wicked act of mass murder”.
The suspect, who has been officially identified as Robert Bowers, 46, was injured and is receiving treatment.
Two other people are in hospital in a critical condition, police said.
Federal investigators are treating the shooting as a hate crime.
The Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish non-governmental organisation that fights anti-Semitism, said: “We believe this is the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the history of the United States.”
Hundreds of people – from the neighbourhood and also all across Pittsburgh – later gathered for an interfaith vigil for the victims of the attack in Squirrel Hill.
Sophia Levin, a local resident and one of the organisers, told the BBC some people were “really sad” and the mood was “heavy”.
But she added that people also wanted to be “together, not alone”, and the vigil would help heal the city.
President Trump said he would visit Pittsburgh, following the attack….
What do we know about the gunman?
US media said he had shouted “All Jews must die” as he carried out the attack.
Social media posts by someone with the name Robert Bowers were also reported to be full of anti-Semitic comments.
Pittsburgh FBI’s special agent in charge of the investigation, Bob Jones, told a press conference that Mr Bowers did not appear to be known to authorities prior to events on Saturday.
He said that any motive remains unknown but that authorities believe he was acting alone.
Mr Jones added that the investigation was “in the early stages”. “We will look at every aspect of the suspect’s life,” he said.
Mr Bowers is receiving treatment for what has been described as multiple gunshot wounds….
