The shooter arrested in the killing of three individuals outside Jewish institutions in Overland Park, Kansas is a white supremacist with a long history of promoting anti-Semitism and racism. The suspect, identified by police as Frazier Cross, but who is also known as Frazier Glenn Miller, is a white supremacist from southwest Missouri with a career in hatred and white supremacy that has spanned more than three decades.
The total number of anti-Semitic incidents in the United States fell by 19 percent in 2013, continuing a decade-long downward slide and marking one of the lowest levels of incidents reported by ADL since it started keeping records in 1979. National Chair Barry Curtiss-Lusher said that we "must remember that there are people behind every one of these numbers, and every incident represents one person or an entire community affected by the trauma of anti-Semitism.”
"This latest snapshot of anti-Semitism in Florida reflects the positive progress being made in society, and the greater acceptance that the Jewish community has found. While we are encouraged by the decline in the total number of anti-Semitic incidents, we are once again reminded that anti-Semitism still exists. Jews are still harassed. Jewish institutions are still vandalized. We will continue to do our part in eradicating anti-Jewish bigotry through education and public awareness."
