What This Iranian Immigrant is Doing for Victims of Tree of Life Synagogue Shooting is Pure Class

What a lovely gesture.

After the horrific shooting in a Pittsburgh synagogue that led to the murder of eleven individuals on Saturday, Iranian immigrant Shay Khatiri decided that he wasn’t going to sit idly by and do nothing, but was going to take action to try and find some way to ease the pain of those suffering as a result of this evil action.

Khatiri says he awoke to the news of the shooting Saturday morning in the home of a Jewish friend who was devastated by what happened at Tree of Life synagogue. With inspiration coming from his cross-cultural friendship, he leapt into action creating a GoFundMe account for the victims.

“She told me what happened and she was just broken,” Khatiri told CNN. “Seeing how upset she was, I wanted to donate to the congregation.”

But instead of donating from his meager bank account, Kahtiri pledged to ask members of social media to come together in the wake of the attack and do something to enrich the lives of survivors and of victims’ families, and to help the suffering congregation. He set up a GoFundMe with the hopes of raising $50,000. By Sunday evening, he’d raised nearly half a million.

“I thought to myself, I could donate $18 or $36 — something like that. But that wouldn’t make a huge impact,” he said. “If I did something like this, maybe it could go viral and have a huge impact,” Khatiri said.

“An anti-Semite attacked and killed several attendees to a baby’s bris at a Pittsburgh synagogue. This fundraiser is meant to help the congregation with the physical damages to the building, as well as the survivors and the victims’ families. Respond to this hateful act with your act of love today,” the GoFundMe page reads.

GoFundMe has certified Tree of Life Congregation as the recipient of Kahtiri’s collected funds. After blowing through his initial goal, he’s now raised the fundraising goal to a million dollars.

“Everyone talks about how divided we are. But in such a tragic moment, Americans are always powerful and indivisible in trauma,” Kahtiri said in his interview with CNN. “Every time something happens, I am reminded of how great this country is.”

The shooting on Saturday is the largest single anti-Semitic attack in American history. The shooter announced loudly his intention to murder Jews as he opened fire during the early morning service. The gunman has a long history of anti-Semitic threats, posting many of them on social media platforms like Twitter.

NO JOKE: Bernie Sanders Says He Would Let Boston Bomber Vote — From Jail (Watch)

There are no words…

Every proud American has a duty to make sure President Trump is re-elected simply so Democrat Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders never steps foot in the Oval Office. His socialist policies would cause irreversible damage on America – and that’s the point. That is what progressives want to see happen. Monday night on CNN, Bernie said he’d be cool with the Boston bomber voting from prison. But not just him. All prisoners. No joke. From Daily Wire: Socialist Bernie Sanders said during a CNN Democratic town hall event that he would let the Boston Marathon bomber, sex predators, and murderers vote in U.S. elections while in prison. An audience member asked, “Would [you] support enfranchising people like the Boston Marathon bomber, a convicted terrorist and murderer? Do you think those convicted of sexual assault should have the opportunity to vote for politicians who could have a direct impact on women’s rights?” Sanders noted, “If somebody commits a serious crime, sexual assault, murder, they’re going to be punished. They may be in jail 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, their whole life. That’s what happens when you commit a serious crime. But I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away … you’re running down a slippery slope … I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.” Bernie topped it off with this final line, “I believe every single person does have the right to vote.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMyrChsBG68 Just completely crazy, right? Speaking of crazy, Ann Coulter has completely lost her mind. In 2016, she backed Donald Trump harder than anybody because he promised to take a tough stance…

EXPOSED: Ocasio-Cortez & Omar Caught Violating Rules, Experts Say They WON’T Be Punished

Because, you know – OF COURSE!

If you’re a “cool” freshman member of Congress, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) and Ilhan Omar (MN), you can do whatever you please and get away with it. Well, that pretty much pertains to every member of Congress – but that’s beside the point. AOC and Omar may have been caught violating the rules, but they’re going to skate. Craziness. From Daily Caller: House progressives are violating congressional rules by using a dark money group to help accomplish their caucus’s legislative goals, experts told The Daily Caller News Foundation. The leaders of the 97-member Congressional Progressive Caucus could face a formal censure or reprimand for using outside funds and services from the Congressional Progressive Caucus Center (CPCC), a nonprofit group, according to the experts. House rules prohibit congressional caucuses from accepting such support from outside organizations. But although the progressive caucus’s relationship with the outside charity group “seems like a clear violation of the rule,” there likely won’t be any consequences anytime soon, Acton Institute editor Joe Carter, who has researched congressional caucuses, told TheDCNF. Omar and Ocasio-Cortez joined Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in a video put out by Rolling Stone. The trio says a whole lot while literally saying nothing. Pelosi even went as far as to demand President Trump not seek re-election in 2020. You know, because a booming economy and all-time low minority unemployment is apparently a bad thing. Pelosi: “If I had to say something to Trump, I probably wouldn’t say anything, because I don’t think that it’s worth the extra attention.” She added, “Mr. President, do the country a favor, don’t run.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiQr6XtcdwE#action=share Omar represents Minnesota’s fifth district. A new report claims it is the “terrorist recruitment capital” of the United States of America. As if Omar wasn’t dealing with enough at the moment,…
