White supremacy still poses a threat to American Jews, with 12 supremacists arrested in the last year for alleged roles in attacks on Jewish people.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which campaigns to promote the safety of Jewish people across the world, also said that white supremacists posed a threat to other minority groups in the US.
The organisation’s investigation into these attacks comes almost a year after a terrorist attack at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.
In October 2018, 47-year-old Robert Bowers allegedly opened fire during a ceremony at the Tree of Life Synagogue, killing 11 people.
Bowers is alleged to have written a post on the social media site Gab hours before the attack, saying that a Jewish refugee organisation brought “invaders in that kill our people”.
He is currently awaiting trial. Earlier this month, his request for a plea offer for life in prison were rejected by federal prosecutors, who are seeking the death penalty.
ADL said 780 anti-semitic incidents were recorded in the first six months of 2019. This is down on the previous year, but only by five reports.
In that time, at least another 50 properties belonging to Jewish institutions have been targeted by white supremacists, ADL say.
Sky News has looked at some of the white supremacists accused of being involved in anti-semitic attacks:
John T. Earnest, 20, California
Earnest allegedly opened fire at a synagogue in Poway, Southern California during Passover using an assault rifle. One person died and three people were injured in the attack.
Earnest’s trial recently heard a recording of a 911 call he made, where he calmly tells the operator that he had “shot up” a synagogue.
The 20-year-old has pleaded not guilty.
Ross Farca, 23, California
Farca was arrested in June 2019, charged with making criminal threats, and manufacturing and possessing an illegal assault weapon.
He allegedly said online that he wished to emulate the Poway gunman John T. Earnest., but wanted to “carry out a mas [sic] shooting with a body count of over 30-subhumans” while “wearing a Nazi uniform” and livestream it “with Nazi music”.
His preliminary trial is set for 14 November.
Corbin Kauffman, Pennsylvania
ADL helped identify Kauffman, who used aliases to post anti-semitic and Islamophobic messages on social media.
According to prosecutors, Kauffman allegedly “expressed a desire to commit genocide” and called for “the killing of Jewish people, black people and Muslim people”.
Kauffman is charged with interstate transmission of threats, a crime that carries a maximum of five years in prison. Sky News has found that at least one of his Twitter accounts is still online.
Garrett Kelsey, 31, Iowa
Kelsey was arrested in May after he called a New York-based Jewish organisation, during which he allegedly threatened to “slaughter” people.
“My people have f****** slaughtered your f****** people before and we will do it again,” he is alleged to have said
He is currently awaiting trial.
Hardy Lloyd, 41, Pennsylvania
White supremacist Lloyd posted online that “lone wolves” should kill Jews, arguing that those who supported new gun laws introduced after the Pittsburgh shooting be murdered.
His posts violated a supervised release from prison, which prohibited him from accessing social media. In August, he was sentenced to two years in prison.
James P. Reardon Jr., 20, Ohio
Reardon was arrested and charged with transmitting an interstate communication threat and possession of a firearm. He is said to have made video threats on Instagram against a local Jewish community centre.
His threats allegedly also included a video with a caption making reference to him as a “local white nationalist”.
As an 18-year-old Reardon appeared in National Geographic about the now-infamous Charlottesville Unite The Right rally, where he said he was not a neo-Nazi, but wanted a “homeland for white people”.
Reardon has pleaded not guilty.
