Time to Put an End to Anti-Semitic Terror Attacks in the US

This weekend, what seems to be an anti-Semitic shooting was the latest such attack to hit the United States. After a Jewish man was shot while waiting to worship at a Florida synagogue, Arutz Sheva reports, Jewish leaders are calling for an end to such anti-Jewish violence:

Yaakov Hagoel, Vice Chairman of the World Zionist Organization, called on American law enforcement officials to make a concerted effort to end what he dubbed a “wave of anti-Semitic terrorist attacks” in the US, following a shooting near the entrance of a synagogue in Florida.

“First of all, I wish complete recovery for the wounded,” said Hagoel I call upon the US authorities to put an end to the wave of anti-Semitic terrorist attacks that are being perpetrated against Jews in the United States. It’s time for Jews to be able to live their lives like any other citizen.”

The shooting occurred Sunday evening outside of the Young Israel of Greater Miami synagogue near North Miami Beach, when a gunman drove up near the synagogue and opened fire, wounding a 69-year-old man..

The victim was shot at least six times in the leg, and was taken to Aventura Medical Center, and is in stable condition, according to Miami-Dade police…
