The shooter arrested in the killing of three individuals outside Jewish institutions in Overland Park, Kansas is a white supremacist with a long history of promoting anti-Semitism and racism. The suspect, identified by police as Frazier Cross, but who is also known as Frazier Glenn Miller, is a white supremacist from southwest Missouri with a career in hatred and white supremacy that has spanned more than three decades.
The League condemned appearance of anti-Semitic fliers in Donetsk, Ukraine, and called on all parties involved in the political conflicts in Ukraine to refrain from “cynical and politically manipulative” exploitation of anti-Semitism. National Director Abraham Foxman said the instructions "clearly recall the Nazi era and have the effect of intimidating the local Jewish community."
"We have seen a series of cynical and politically manipulative uses and accusations of anti-Semitism in Ukraine over the past year. The perpetrators and their targets are opposing politicians and political movements, but the true victims are the Jewish communities. We strongly condemn the anti-Semitic content, but also all attempts to use anti-Semitism for political purposes."
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, from an article on Mashable.com referring to anti-Semitic fliers that appeared in Donetsk, Ukraine.
Mr. Foxman discusses some of the latest developments on the Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations and the importance of stopping the "blame game."
