Pittsburgh rabbi to politicians: Tone down 'words of hate'

Pittsburgh Mayor: Take Guns From Those 'Looking To Express Hatred Through Murder'

Survivors described dodging through the Tree of Life synagogue's warren of nooks and crannies to find bolt holes. He was wounded in a shootout with police before surrendering to security forces.

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto was also invited but won't be appearing with Trump, the report added.

The First Family then traveled to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital, where four shooting victims are receiving treatment.

A group of Pittsburgh Jewish leaders wrote an open letter to President Donald Trump today telling him he bears responsibility for a deadly shooting at a synagogue in the USA city.

More than 250 people said they would attend a silent protest during Trump's visit to Squirrel Hill, which is about 40 percent Jewish.

"The president is going to continue to draw contrasts", Sanders said, noting that Democrats had been equally vocal in criticizing Trump. "It comes from my mother-in-law, who [is a member of the Tree of Life synagogue and] sat with [the victims who were killed] every day".

"I would just ask the President please, please if it's not too late put it off a week", Diamond told CNN's Don Lemon. "If the president wishes to come next week, or the next, that's something we can look at", he told CNN. The congregation's president declined to comment.




Further, he said the White House should ask the victims' families for permission before visiting. The president wants to be there to show the support of this administration for the Jewish community. "His language has encouraged hatred and fear of immigrants, which is part of the reason why these people were killed", she said.

Eight men and three women were killed Saturday when a man opened fire inside the Tree of Life Synagogue during worship services.

Myers has reportedly become a target for partisan hate in the days following the worst attack on Jews in the United States - and all because Myers expressed his welcome to the president with open arms.

Since his 2016 campaign for the White House, Trump has at times been slow to denounce white nationalists, neo-Nazis and other hate-filled individuals and groups that found common cause with his nationalistic political rhetoric.

He faces 11 counts of use of a firearm to commit murder, 11 counts of obstruction of the exercise of religious beliefs resulting in death, attempted homicide, and aggravated assault, NBC News reported.

Bowers appeared briefly in federal court in a wheelchair and handcuffs Monday to face charges he killed 11 people in what is believed to be the deadliest attack on Jews in US history.

The alleged mass-murderer was ordered to remain in custody until his preliminary court hearing, which is scheduled for 10am Thursday.
