News Story:

A man with a very strong anti-Semitic past opened fire in the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, killing one guard and then being shot  himself by law enforcement officers.  The shooter is 88 years old and was the writer of an anti-Semitic book entitiled “Kill the Best Gentile.”  He also runs a racist, anti-Semitic website.  He has a criminal record of attempting to kidnap Federal Reserve Board members as well.  The museum is located mere blocks from the White House in Washington DC, and generally has strong security including metal detectors.  The President expressed sadness at the occurrence of this incident.

Commentary:

This type of bigotry is the source of so much violence and strife in the world.  It is very sad and disheartening to see that this line of thought still exists in the US today.
