Shooting at a synagogue in Germany over Yom Kippur leaves two dead; Suspect created an antisemitic video prior to the shooting and livestreamed the shooting for the world to see; German FM: That on the Day of Atonement a synagogue was shot at hits us in the heart.

During the Jewish time of observation for Yom Kippur, “The Day of Atonement”, a gunman opened fire at a synagogue in Berlin, Germany, killing two people. The gunman took his evil act a step further in that he livestreamed the video via Amazon Twitch.

Prior to his attack, the gunman made an antisemitic themes video online, stating, “I think the Holocaust never happened…feminism is the cause of decline in birth rates in the West…The root of all these problems is the Jew.” In his rage, he is reported to have killed a woman outside of the Synagogue and a man inside of the kabab shop next-door.

There were approximately 70-80 people inside of the synagogue when the act began, who were able to barricade themselves in while the gunman tried to access the inside. Jewish Community Chairman for Halle, Max Privorozki, who witnessed the event, said, “We barricaded the doors from inside and waited for the police.” German Foreign Minister Heiko Mass tweeted, “That on the Day of Atonement a synagogue was shot at hits us in the heart…We must all act against anti-Semitism in our country.”

There is no shortage of antisemitic acts in Germany’s history; from Jew-hating gentiles, the state, or sadly, even the church.

Did You Know?

Did you know that Germany is home to approximately 83 million people with 200,000 of them being Jews? That is about .25% of the overall population. NOT EVEN 1%. Yet, no one is targeted more. Did you know that Germany, due to their mass immigration issue, is flooding with problems from the unprecedented number of Muslim immigrants flowing into the country with no accountability? Attacks happen daily on the streets, yet, it’s the Jew that is the problem, apparently. It’s no coincidence that Jews around the world are finding that the safest place for them to be is back in the land that God gave them.

Evil thinking like this is not new. Perhaps you recall the people who relentlessly blamed the Jews for the 9-11 terror attacks in the United States.

Antisemitism is demonic at its core. Satan has always sought to stir up someone in power to destroy the Jews; Pharaoh, Haman, Herod, Hitler, the coming Antichrist, etc. Satan believes that if he can destroy the people from whom Christ came and has promised to return, he can nullify the promises of God.

While antisemitism is on the rise and will only get worse as Satan stirs up people to target the Jews, the Lord God will always have a remnant.
