In the one-year following the atrocity at Pittsburgh's Tree of Life synagogue, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) reports 12 white supremacists have been arrested for their alleged roles in terrorist plots, attacks or threats against the Jewish community. Jewish institutions have been targeted at least 50 times with the following:
* 12 instances of vandalism using white supremacist symbols;
* 35 distributions of white supremacist propaganda;
* At least 30 additional incidents in which individuals of unknown ideology committed arson, vandalism or distributed propaganda that was not explicitly white supremacist in nature at Jewish institutions.
Seven hundred and eighty (780) incidents of anti-Semiticism have been reported in the first six months of this year.
The data, located here, include the arrest of Corbin Kauffman, age 30, from Lehighton, Pennsylvania, who was charged April 1, 2019, with interstate transmission of threats to injure the person of another. He had threatened multiple times to kill Jews. His preliminary examination is still pending, believe it or not.
