Netanyahu: German Synagogue Attack More Evidence of Rising Antisemitism in Europe

Netanyahu: German Synagogue Attack More Evidence of Rising Antisemitism in Europe”

It is unknown how many people were inside the synagogue at the time of the incident but the head of Halle's Jeish community, Max Privorotzki told Der Spiegel that he estimated there were about 70 to 80 people inside.

Herzog went on to say that he had spoken with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, "who expressed his deep disturbance regarding the attack on the synagogue in Halle, saying, 'This is an attack on all of us".

When asked how many people viewed the original stream of the shooting and how long it was up before Twitch took action, the spokesperson told Gizmodo Twitch was investigating the matter and did not have any more information to share. "We worked with urgency to remove this content and will permanently suspend any accounts found to be posting or reposting content of this abhorrent act", it said.

The video showed a man making anti-Semitic comments to camera before driving to a synagogue and shooting at its door.

Rössler said the man then opened fire at "least once" into the shop where there were between five and six customers.

"Even before the events of yesterday, I wouldn't have left my home with the kippah", said Matviyets, referring to the traditional Jewish skullcap, as he stood in the historic old town district targeted by the attacker. He said that emergency services and police were evacuating people from the synagogue.

The Anti-Defamation League, which called the Germany shooting "heartbreaking" in a Wednesday statement, reported earlier this year that violent anti-Semitic episodes in the United States doubled in 2018.

What appeared to be a manifesto also appeared online, according to Rita Katz, the head of the SITE Intelligence Group.

Seehofer said that police had uncovered 1,091 weapons including firearms and explosives during probes of crimes linked to the far right previous year, far more than in 2017 when 676 were found.

Giving up on the synagogue, he shoots a woman on the street, but his weapon misfires, as it does throughout the attack, when he attempts to shoot another person. He drove a short distance to park opposite the kebab shop. "I locked myself quietly in this toilet, and wrote to my family that I love them, and waited for something to happen".

"It took 15 to 20 minutes for officers to arrive", Feist recalled. Police shoot him, but he escapes and continues to drive.

"It must be clear that the state takes responsibility for Jewish life, for the security of Jewish life in Germany", he said. So Amazon, Twitch (owned by Amazon) and Twitter all had the video circulating through their networks and out to untolds swaths of the population of the world. "We do not exclude any possibility".

One suspect was captured but with a manhunt ongoing for other perpetrators, security was tightened in synagogues in other eastern German cities while Halle itself was in lockdown.

"All emergency services have been deployed", he said. He added that officials had rejected his requests for more police protection before the attack.

Chief Rabbi of Berlin Yehudah Teichtal said, "We stand alongside the community that has been harmed and weep over those murdered". "All are safe and unharmed", he tweeted. An attack on one Jew is an attack on all, said Fagin, adding that "our prayers and thoughts are with our brethren in Halle".
