Why did David Anderson, the black nationalist gunman who opened fire in a Jewish market in Jersey City choose a store in the early afternoon? There had been speculation that he messed up and his real target was the Jewish school and synagogue right next door. The market has a modern look with lots of glass. The school building looks grimy and unappealing. It’s easy to overlook it.
Mayor Steven Fulop has said that the black nationalist gunmen, Anderson and his girlfriend, were targeting the school. Now there’s evidence from Anderson’s own Black Hebrew Israelite ravings.
Numerous posts in this Facebook account illustrate Anderson’s hatred for Jews, whom he sometimes refers to as Khazars – a reference to an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that modern Jews are descendants of an Eastern European tribe from the eleventh century. In July 2015 he wrote, “Brooklyn is full of NAZIS – ASHKE-NAZIS (KHAZARS).” (“Ashkenazi” is the name of a Jewish ethnic group, which includes many Hassidic and ultra-Orthodox Jews.) He went on to allege that Jews were responsible for murdering black men because “the police are their hand now.”
This is the same theory spread by hate groups like JVP and by Linda Sarsour, a Bernie Sanders surrogate.
While Anderson had been a Farrakhan fan, apparently even Farrakhan wasn’t anti-Semitic enough for him.
Anderson’s hatred of Jews even led him to repudiate notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan in September 2015 when Farrakhan posed with two representatives of an extreme Jewish sect called Neturei Karta. Anderson reposted a photo of the three men which was captioned with “Farrakhan and Fake Jews…Ooh I smell a rat.” Anderson himself wrote, “Farrah-Con is, well…A Con.”
More significantly, as far as the attack goes, Anderson went on quite a bit about killing Edomite children. By ‘Edomites’, he meant Americans, white people in general, and seemingly Jews.
“I LOVE TO SEE EDOMITE CHILDREN SUFFER.” (August 25, 2015)
“This is why these bastards must be killed with the sword and led into hard bondage and excruciating captivity. Everyone [sic] of them. From their mothers to their nursing infants.” (August 22, 2015)

The FBI might have been paying attention to this. Unfortunately Democrats forced the FBI to shut down the Black Identity Extremists category.
