Muslims Raise More Than $100K For Pittsburgh Synagogue Victims

Muslims Raise More Than $100K For Pittsburgh Synagogue Victims

Several more people - including four area police officers - were injured in the attack.

"They didn't", Trump told reporters at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. "This time it was us, but we can't tolerate hate in our country here, or anywhere". If convicted, the suspect could face the death penalty. "Where have you been?" said Cecil Rosenthal, 59, a man with an intellectual disability whom she had gotten to know through an art class at the city's Jewish Community Center. That's in accordance with a proclamation issued by President Trump.

Police said the suspect had three handguns and an assault-style rife at the shooting. After a shootout, he surrendered. He has been hospitalized with multiple gunshot wounds but will appear before a federal judge on Monday. They included two brothers and one married couple. No children were killed, authorities said.

Two hours before a gunman burst into the Tree of Life synagogue and opened fire during a Shabbat religious service, Bowers posted on chat site Gab.com about the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), a non-profit that helps Jewish refugees relocate to the United States.

"I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered", Bowers allegedly wrote before the shooting.

The comment was posted on Gab, a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based social networking service created as right-wing alternative to Twitter. A law enforcement source told CNN that investigators believe a Gab account that espoused anti-Semitic views belonged to Bowers.

Many gathered on the University of North Florida campus, Sunday evening, to honor the lives of 11 people, gunned down at the Tree of Life Synagogue synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Khashoggi killing 'undermines regional stability,' US defence secretary says
Khashoggi had gone to the consulate for paperwork related to his planned marriage to Cengiz. He also said Saudi authorities had staged the "worst cover-up ever" over the case.

For El-Messidi, the past few years have not been an easy time to be an American Muslim, which is all the more reason to reach out to others in their times of need.

Shortly after reports of the shooting emerged, Mr Trump said in a tweet he was watching what he described as a "devastating" situation. "I've heard the conversation over the past year about how we should arm security guards in our schools", Peduto said.

President Donald Trump addressed the shooting at length on Saturday, denouncing it as "a wicked act of mass murder", saying: "We must stand with our Jewish brothers and sisters to defeat anti-Semitism and vanquish the forces of hate".

Hissrich said extra patrols have been assigned to "sensitive locations around Pittsburgh", including at a vigil planned for Sunday night.

Other vigils were held across Canada including in Montreal, Halifax and Vancouver. The groups said they are partnering with the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh to distribute the funds.

The Anti-Defamation League and Jewish Council for Public Affairs described it as the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the history of the United States.
