Suspect in Jewish center shootings 'entrenched in the hate movement'
Ed Payne


CNN, April 14, 2014

...Views shaped early

A Green Beret who served 20 years in the Army, including two tours in Vietnam, Cross has racist views that were shaped early in life, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate groups. The SPLC, like the ADL, referred to Cross by his pseudonym of Miller.

His father gave him a copy of a newspaper published by the National States' Rights Party, and within two minutes, he said he knew he'd found a home in the movement.

Who were the victims?

In the early 1980s, he founded and ran the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. But instead of the traditional white robe of the Klan, he preferred fatigues and recruited active-duty soldiers as members.

According to the ADL, which released a summary of its files on Cross/Miller on Monday, the group "drew notoriety for its paramilitary training exercises" and was behind several attacks on African-Americans during that era. Cross himself "was one of the more notorious white supremacists in the U.S."

The SPLC sued him for operating an illegal paramilitary organization and for intimidating African-Americans. The two sides settled, with the Knights barred from operating. But a month later, Cross resurfaced with an offshoot: the White Patriot Party....

...Racism meets religion

According to Cross' 1999 autobiography, he is an adherent of Odinism, a neo-pagan religion that experts say has become one of the most vicious strains in the white supremacist movement.

"I'd love to see North America's 100 million Aryan Christians convert to the religion invented by their own race and practiced for a thousand generations before the Jews thought up Christianity," he wrote, describing Odinism as "the religion for a strong heroic people."

In his autobiography, "A White Man Speaks Out," Cross wrote that he had prayed to the Norse god Odin to spark a race war in the United States.

Though Odinism has been appropriated by white racists, most adherents are peaceful, earth-loving pagans, said Jonathan White, an expert on white supremacists and a professor at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

A shotgun-wielding man opened fire at two Jewish sites in suburban Kansas City on Sunday, killing three people -- including a teenager and his grandfather -- and shocking a peaceful community.

Police arrested Frazier Glenn Cross, 73, of Aurora, Mo., and booked him into the Johnson County, Kan., jail Sunday evening, charging him with premeditated murder, according to the booking report.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Cross -- whose real name is Frazier Glenn Miller -- is a former "grand dragon" of the Ku Klux Klan with a long history of running illegal paramilitary organizations and intimidating minorities....

Attacks on Jews show a troubling increase
Alana Semuels


Los Angeles Times, April 02, 2014

NEW YORK — The elderly woman had stopped by the Jewish Community Center in the Canarsie area of Brooklyn and was shuffling away, leaning heavily on her walker, when a young man punched her in the head as he walked past, knocking her to the ground.

When she returned to the center for help, the staff called for an ambulance, vigilant that this might have been another example of the "knockout game," a social media trend that had young people punching out random individuals on the street last year. Since that November incident, the neighborhood hasn't had any other anti-Semitic assaults, but that doesn't mean the victim has healed, said Rabbi Avrohom Hecht, executive director of the center, who helped the woman after the assault.

"People should realize when they do this to someone there are emotional and mental scars they leave on people," Hecht said. "I know this woman is still suffering."...

Antisemitism in America


worldjewishdaily.com, April 17, 2014

As he prepares to step down this summer as American Jewry's leading figure in the battle against antisemitism, Anti-Defamation League National Director Abe Foxman is happy to report America tops the list of countries where Jews suffer the least from antisemitism.

In a wide-ranging interview with the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Foxman said, “Statistically, yes, the picture is pretty good.” American Jews live relatively free from discrimination or threats of violence and have "made it" socially.

But America "is not immune to antisemitism. We’re not immune to racism and bigotry and prejudice,” Foxman warned.

There is "classic antisemitism: Jew-baiting, swastika scrawling, physical violence." There is anti-Zionism on college campuses, which many view as antisemitism, and there is "attidunal" antisemitism.

A recent ADL poll showed 12% of Americans hold antisemitic views; down from 30% in 1964. The statistics were highest among the African-American and Latino populations, with more than 30% of that population reportedly having antisemitic attitudes....

EXCLUSIVE: Victim of Anti-Semitic Attack in France Says Similar Incidents Occur Every Week (INTERVIEW)

The victim of a brutal anti-Semitic attack in Paris late last month said assaults similar to the one he faced are a common occurrence in France.

His comments were made in an exclusive interview with The Algemeiner on Thursday.

“This incident is not isolated. There are similar incidences every week in Paris, in the suburbs [and] in the provinces,” said the 59-year-old Jewish teacher, only identified as David. “There was another attack after mine in Paris and the general media did not mention it, only the Jewish media did. They never talk about Jews being attacked, they don’t write that  ’Jews [were] attacked by Arabs.’”

David was assaulted by three North African “Maghreb men” at 10 p.m. on March 20 after leaving a kosher restaurant in Rue Manin, Paris, and making his way to a subway station. “They started to curse me out: ‘dirty Jew,’ ‘death to the Jews,’ ‘son of a b***,’ etc. Then they started to beat me up,” he said in an interview following the incident. Then, with a marker, they drew a swastika on his bare chest....
