Update from Pamela, here…

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Los Angeles police say two men have been shot in the legs in a North Hollywood synagogue.

Officer Rosario Herrera says a black man with a handgun entered the Adat Yeshurun Valley Sephardic synagogue at about 6:20 a.m. Thursday and shot two Jewish people. Police are investigating the shooting as a hate crime.

The victims were taken to a hospital and police are searching for the gunman.

It was not clear how many people were in the building at the time.

No one answered a call to the synagogue.

  1. Imagine the outcry & police response if it had been “pepper spray can found near mosque, white man seen nearby”. These days the police are likely to tell the synagogue to close because they cannot guarantee its safety.

  2. This is a very strange case. The gunman waits until everyone else is in shul and *then* he attacks Manour Ben-Nissan as the latter gets out of the car. One shot in each leg.

    The next guy, Allen or Alan Lansry, also a Sephardic Jew on his way to morning prayers, happened to drive up at the same time and appears to have been a victim of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. So he gets the same treatment: one shot in each leg. Was that to intimidate him into silence since he was a witness?

    There was plenty of time to kill these two men, both of whom were over an hour late to morning prayer (couldn’t find out anything about Lansry, but ben Nissan was a daily attendant at morning prayers. He is an Orthodox Sephardic Jew who was born in Israel & was brought here as a child. Owns a tile store).

    At first I thought it might be connected to some kind of payback for the jihad/gangster takedown in Detroit. But looking at the list of these people (go to the MANA website) there aren’t any West Coast African American jihadists in that group. Or in Ummah, which H. Rap Brown heads from his cell in the federal pen.

    Hamas is not exactly thick on the ground in LA but the mob is. The modus operandus for this hit job reeks of LA “mob” and they could easily have hired a black man for the contract.

    If that is the case, ben-Nissan will never admit it. The law may be able to subpoena his books, but it might not show.

    One of my black neighbors is fond of saying “not all G-d’s dangers are a white man”…and that may be the case here. I mean that not all G-d’s dangers are a jihadist. Not even those faux “Muslim” African Americans who haven’t a clue that Islam enslaved and killed more of them than any European ever did. In fact, the slave trade to the Middle East continues today.

    It will be interesting to see what the police uncover when they go over ben-Nissan’s accounts. However, we may never know since he’s going to be very motivated to keep his mouth shut.
