Muslim groups raise money for victims after Pittsburgh synagogue shooting

  • Just one day after the mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, two Muslim groups have raised tens of thousands of dollars for the victims and their families.
  • The campaign passed its original fundraising goal of $25,000 within six hours, and then its new goal of $50,000 within 24 hours, according to the page. As of Sunday afternoon, it has raised nearly $80,000 from more than 1,800 donors.
  • The Anti-Defamation League said the Pittsburgh rampage is the deadliest attack on Jews in American history. The shooting left 11 people and six people injured, including four police officers, after suspected gunman Robert Bowers allegedly ambushed Saturday services with an AR-15 rifle and three handguns.
  • An affidavit said that after his surrender, Bowers told an officer, “I just want to kill Jews” and that Jews were “committing genocide to my people.”
  • In the weeks before the shooting, Bowers avidly posted anti-Semitic content on the social network Gab, including threats, Holocaust denials and a vast array of conspiracy theories.
