SWC REACTION TO SHOOTING OF SECURITY GUARD AT THE US HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM BY SELF-IDENTIFIED ANTI-SEMITE, WHITE SUPREMACIST, AND HATER OF AFRICAN-AMERICANS

"The  attack that took place at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington by James von Brunn, a self-identified anti-Semite, white supremacist, and hater of African-Americans shows that the cancer of hatred, bigotry and anti-Semitism is alive and well in America," said Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper, founder and dean and associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

"The most astonishing fact is that the assailant, a captain in the US Navy who once fought against the 'Axis of Evil' in World War II, became an instrument of that evil," they added.

“While the world listened as  President Obama, Chancellor Merkel and Elie Wiesel insisted at Buchenwald that the message was ‘never again,’ Von Brunn and his minions insist that the message is ‘ever again’,” concluded Hier and Cooper who are currently meeting with Arab leaders in the Gulf region.

James von Brunn, the alleged 89-year old shooter’s racist and anti-Semitic sentiments have been tracked by Simon Wiesenthal Center researchers. Some selections from various websites are shown below, click on images to enlarge.
