He wanted to “protect America from the Jewish people” – life sentence for attack on synagogue – News Abroad

He was 20 years old at the time of his meaningless bloody act. Under the illusion that America must be protected from the “Jewish people.” Now the trial against him is over.

Two years after a vicious attack on a synagogue in California, John D. Ernest was sentenced to life in prison on Thursday. No chance of being released in advance!

The 22-year-old pleaded guilty to assaulting a synagogue in Bowe, near San Diego, California, and shooting himself in May 2019. A 60-year-old woman was killed and three others were injured, including the baby and the rabbi.

According to court documents, the defendant testified that he wanted to “protect the nation from the Jewish people” by his action.

Hours before the attack, he posted an anti-racist and anti-Semitic pamphlet on the Internet in which he claimed responsibility for the March 2019 arson attack on the mosque.

The attack on the Sabbath synagogue took place on the last day of the Passover and six months after the terrorist attack on a synagogue in Pittsburgh.
