Jewish Pride While Treating a Murderer

A post circulating on social media has brought out the true irony of the world we live in. A man who murders 11 Jews during a religious ceremony, and who continues to spew Anti-Semitic hate while being treated in the hospital, was being treated by a Jew.


Following the mass shooting in Pittsburgh, the shooter, identified by authorities as Robert D. Bowers, was being treated for multiple gunshot wounds in a local hospital. He was discharged today, and will soon be making a court appearance.

As previously reported on, the shooting occurred while worshipers had been attending services inside the conservative Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill. The shooter had barged in just before 10 a.m, yelling “All Jews must die!” 11 people were killed during the 20-minute siege, six other people were wounded, including four police officers.

A social media post has been circulating with a message of strength, and resilience, that the Jewish pride has not been broken.

The doctor who was treating the shooter, is herself a Jew, and a proud one. When asked if she would wear her Magen David while treating the shooter, she replied “I already thought of that, and it’s already on.”
