HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS;APRIL 25, 2014  Netanyahu, Jewish leaders send condolences to families of Kansas City victims (JTA)--Israeli Prime Minis- ter Benjamin Netanyahu sent condolences to the families of the three people killed by a gunman at two Jewish facilities in suburban Kansas City, Kan. "We condemn the murder that by all the signs was done out of hatred of Jews," Ne- tanyahu said in a statement issued Monday morning, the day after the shootings. "The state of Israel, as one with all civilized people, is obligated to struggle against this blight." The victims were killed in shootings at the JCC of Greater Kansas City and the Village Shalom assistedqiving facility in Overland Park, Kan. The JCC victims were William L. Corporon, a grandfather and retired physian, and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, both members of a Methodist church in the area. The Village Shalom victim was Terri LaManno, a Catholic mother of two. The suspected shooter, who is in custody, has been identified as Frazier Glenn Miller, a 73-year-old white supremacist. The Anti-Defamation League in a statement issued late Sunday called the shoot- ings "an unspeakable and heinous act of violence." Authorities have not yet determined whether the at- tacks are a hate crime. The ADL said in its statement that it is working with local, federal and state law enforcement officials as the investigation continues.

"While it is too early to label these shootings as a hate crime, the fact that two Jewish institutions were tar- geted by the same individual just prior to the start of the Passover holiday is deeply troubling and certainly gives us pause." David Harris, executive di- rector of the American Jewish Committee, said his organiza- tion "join(s) in solidarity with the entire Kansas City area community, both Jewish and non-Jewish, in expressing shock, sadness and dismay. We can't help but note that this attack comes on the eve of Passover, a celebration of Jewish freedom from oppres- sion and violence." The European Jewish Con- gress warned in a statement issued early Monday that the shootings in Kansas "demonstrates that neo- Nazis and anti-Semites are becoming emboldened" and called on the international community to work together to fight against hate and anti- Semitism. "We stand with our broth- ers and sisters in the U.S. at this difficult time and stand ready to assist in fighting this scourge together because hate knows no boundaries, espe- n r i t i i it l i  iL I l ..................... ................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Israeli man killed in terror attack near Hebron Yonatan Sindel/Flash90 The family of Baruch Mizrahi, a senior Israeli police officer, mourns during his funeral at the military cemetery of Mount Herzl in Jerusalem on April 16, 2014. Mizrahi was shot by Palestinians on April 14 near the West Bank city of Hebron while driving with his wife and young son, who were also injured in the attack, as they were on theirway to a Passover seder. (The Algemeiner)--A 40-year-old Israeli man was killed and his pregnant wife was wounded on Monday in a shooting attack near Hebron, Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot reported. The couple were driving near the Kafr Idhna junction on Route 35 with three young children when a Palestinian Arab terrorist opened fire on vehicles on the road. The father was critically wounded and attempts were made to resuscitate him before he suc- cumbed to his injuries. A child travelling in a dif- ferent car was lightly injured in the attack, according to Israeli media reports. According to a source cited by Reuters, the family was headed to see relatives for the traditional "sealer" meal on the eve of the Jew- ish holiday of Passover. Israeli security forces launched a search of the area in the wake of the attack, according to the report. An initial Israel Defense Forces investigation found that the shooter approached the road on foot, and fired with an automatic weapon at passing cars from sev- eral meters away, Yediot reported. He then moved to another location, where he continued firing until he fled. Palestinian Arab terror groups praised the murder, but as of yet, none have claimed responsibility. Hamas called the attack "heroic" while Islamic Jihad said it was "a natural reac- tion" to Israeli "crimes." Israeli government to allot $289 million for Holocaust survivors (JNS.org)--The Israeli government is expected to approve an additional annual budget of $289 mil- lion in aid for the 200,000 Holocaust survivors living in Israel. The finance and social services ministries are expected to present within a month the altera- tions to the law needed to increase the budget so that the National Plan for Aid to Holocaust Survivors can be implemented as soon as possible, Israel Hayom reported. The plan will make the aid available to concentration camp and ghetto survivors who immigrated to Israel af- ter October 1953 equal to that allocated to survivors who arrived in Israel before that date, who receive their rights under the Disabled Victims of Nazi Persecution Law.
