      • No decent Jew would connect this horrible atrocity with President Trump. He has been nothing but kind and supportive to the Jewish people and the State of Israel.
        Your irrational hatred is more in line with the perpetrator than anything on this website.

        • Really? Isnt it true that the POTUS was Elected by the Nazis in USA? Isnt it true that he called them “Fine People” when they were chanting “Jews wont replace us” and murdered a bystander. I am not saying that he is a Neo-Nazi. They are saying it with their votes for him and now their actions. Are Trumps pictures was found at their rallys and vans or Hillarys? How can any decent Jew not connect the dots? Do they were MAGA hats or H hats. Have some decency and face the facts or go on their blogs.

          • It’s true that a few hundred out of 44 million were Nazis who elected him

            It’s not true that he called the Nazis chanting Jews Will never replace us , fine people . That’s a lie . Yes straight out lie.

            You and I both know he meant the innocent protestors who had no clue about Nazis activity
            . That crowd was mixed

              And I am clear that I disagree with newcomer

              Trump never called Nazis fine people . He called the people unaware of Nazis fine . But continue with your lies and debasing . Yack head

          • Isn’t it true that your democrats pose in pictures with Louis Garbage-Kan? Isn’t it true that the DNC has adopted openly anti-Israel policies?

        And btw, why tie Trump into this unfortunate yiddishe tragedy? Cuz he’s responsible for everything. Bad for Jews to behave this way.

    1. Democrats didn’t care when Madonna said she had thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.

      Democrats didn’t care when Kathy Griffin posed with a mock severed head of President Trump.

      • Liar. He did not say the synagogue is partly to blame. You – like your fellow libtards, Democrats, and lamestream press – are putting words into the President’ mouth.

        In 9 days, it’ll all be over, and you’ll have to retreat back to your safe place. I hope you have enough tissues and crayons.

    2. To newcomer1: They were tinokim sh’nishbu and are not considered to be intentionally violating mitzvos, but rather somebody who just didn’t really know better.. Even if they were nit, they were murdered because they were Jewish, which id a kapara. The murderer didn’t want to kill Jews who call themselves conservative – he wanted to murder all Jews without distinction. Have a heart.

    3. Did anyone notice the photos of frum Yidden with beard and payos coming as emergency workers for the Chevra Kadisha???? We are one people. Such a tragedy should bring out the best in us. God is watching us. Be careful what you say.

    4. Coming back. NO we are not allowed to be mechallel shabos for someone who doesnt keep shabbos. We are not allowed to do tahara for them either even if they are tinok sh.. They are not tinok shenishba and I am sure some where once orthodox. No one is tinok shenishba today. Tahara is a privilege for frum only. Not for PR for misaskim. When it comes to PR the torah falls away. I am not condoning his act just that we are not allowed to be sorry for them. And they certainly wont get gan eden for kiddush hashem. mechalaleho mos yumos. Bavod r’shoim which they are ‘rina’. They were even mosif chet al pesha with a vigil on shabbos of lit havdala candles. One wonders if this is an orthodox blog at all with the hate one reads here for the torah.

    5. It was the obamanation who shrugged of the killing of Jews because they were Jews in a French market as some random people shot for no reason
      In contrast Trump said after this shooting “Those seeking [the Jews’] destruction, we will seek their destruction,”

    6. Maasei Yadai tovu Bayam Veatem Omrim Shirah???? TO Vinnews…please remove Newcomer1’s posts. Yes we should cry over all these people.For many reasons. Please don’t post in public , Newcomer ever again, shut up and keep thisfor your mikva talk – serious

      • That was for the malochim the yidden said shira. I suppose you have never said oz yoshir and dont know it exists. Bavod rshoim rino. You have never heard of that either.

        • You are by far one of THE most misguided persons I have EVER come across.
          You say that today NO ONE is a Tinok Shenishba?
          With the level of outside influences that exists today,
          EVERYONE is a Tinok Shenishba!
          people who were brought up in Heimishe Chasidishe homes!
          your own child, should he or she ever go “Off The Derech” ch”v.

      • What happened? 75% of Poster here for many years attacking liberal Jews. The most vicious attacks imaginable. 3 million Jews voted for Obama and Hillary. They were called names a wont even mention. Are you New to win? Just vos iz neias? whats the news here. Newcomer1 is not doing anything different than most Trump posters. Any Jew who is Pro Obama, Hillary, Meretz, Israels Labor Party. Haaretz and anything and anyone not fitting in their ultra right siteh were attacked. Vos iz neies. Its done daily for the last 10 years. – serious You are right. What made you wake up. Ma nishtana halaylah hazeh?

    7. Newcomer1 is der neier chosid shoteh on VIN. Er halt alles bmidas hadin vall er hot goor nisht kein aveiras. Er ist rein vie a malach!!

    8. To Newcomer1- You are one sick, deranged psycho, who is no different than the shooter. I knew sooner or later that there would be one nut on this website who would point out that the victims were in a Conservative Shul, and hence, we should not feel pity for them or say Boroch Dayan Haemes. If the victims were killed in a Modern Orthodox Shul, you would criticize them also. You disgust me!!!!!!!!!

      • What are you talking about? This Newcomer is a nutjob. He is not alone here. The majority of Trumpist here starting with Educated stated 1000 times that Jews (Alternate Jews) Liberal Jews or any Jews they disagree are not Jews. Everytime someone post that 83% Jews vote Democrat most posters answer: They Are not Jews etc. Especially the not jewish sounding Poster like George,Educated etc. Stop picking on one Sicko there are so many sickos here (Mostly Trumpist) I have yet to see one Hillary or Obama defender attacking any Jew here. Just last week on a Soros discussion many said worse things tha Newcomer.

        • You have some nerve to lie and debase others . You are rotten to the core .

          I was clear about 100 times over . These Jews are our brothers and it is my belief that you need to be mechlal shabbos for them . I said that clearly . Now shut your fat trap you liar

          What I did say was that the 83% views the key word is VIEWS don’t represent Torah Jews . Therefore politically they do not represent us neither in congress nor in
          Courts .

          Never ever said they are not Jews you liar . I said they are not Torah Jews who represent us

          Got it dummy thick head shtick ferd?

    9. To Newcomer- I keep hearing in non-charedi shuls how wonderful the Torah is and how enlightened Jews are. Your version of Torah is one of hate toward others, that you are better than others, that our dead deserved death. No wonder people go OTD in droves, running from yeshiva zombies like you. Your hatred just delayed Moshiach another 1000 years…

    10. Newcomer1 is not new. He is just one of the regular Trumpist here with a new shtick. Its pretty obvious there is no way they can defend the POTUS after what his people did. His Picture all over the Truck, His anti Immigration rants clearly caused the events of the last few days. Instead of defending him they now trying to attack the victims. Isn’t this Trumps signature Logo. Always Attack. Take away the attention from the attacker and concentrate attacking the victims. You pick it. It could be any of our daily Trumpist poster. Its not a coincidence that this guy turned up exactly the day when Trump is no longer defendable on a jewish site. Remeber the day Melanie ha a statement end educated become Educated Judy. (It lasted one day)

    11. This blog hasnt a single Jewish chareidi person left on it as the replies show. All those using the internet like this blog have gone OTD and become conservative at least in thought if not in deed and are now crying over their deaths. The rabbis are right, the net makes choruv, here you have a glaring example!

    12. Gillibrand stands the anti Israel sarsour
      Spartacus Booker stands with anti Israel activists
      Rapist bill and dnc deputy chair ellison stands with Farrakhan
      Democrats stand with the Palestinians and Iran
