PITTSBURGH (Reuters) - The names of those shot dead by a gunman yelling "All Jews must die" will be released on Sunday after the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the United States, officials said.

The gunman stormed a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday, killing 11 worshippers and wounding six other people including four police officers, before he was arrested. Pittsburg Mayor Bill Peduto told CBS television station KDKA that when the list of the dead is released by federal officials at a news conference at 9 a.m. on Sunday, it "will rip your heart out", saying he personally knew some of the victims.

The Tree of Life synagogue in the city's Squirrel Hill neighborhood, a heavily Jewish area, was holding a Shabbat religious service at the time of the shooting. The mass shooting prompted security alerts at houses of worship around the country and condemnation from politicians and religious leaders. It follows a spate of pipe bombs found mailed in recent days to prominent political figures, mostly Democrats including former President Barack Obama, ahead of the Nov. 6 congressional elections.

May the Lord help us to put out the hotbeds of hate that flare up in our societies, strengthening a sense of humanity, respect for life, moral and civil values and the holy fear of God, who is love and the father of all," Pope Francis told pilgrims in St. Peter's Square after a Mass. The U.S. Attorney's Office said it would make public the charging complaint and an official affidavit, which may shed light on why Robert Bowers, 46, of Pittsburgh, allegedly shot the worshippers.

Bowers had made many anti-Semitic posts online, including one early on Saturday. In another, he slammed U.S. President Donald Trump for doing nothing to stop an "infestation" of the United States by Jews. A social media post by Bowers on Saturday morning said a Jewish refugee organization, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, "likes to bring invaders in that kill our people. I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I'm going in". U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters traveling with him to Prague on Sunday the gunman who stormed the synagogue was a coward and the "poorest excuse for a man you could ever come up with".

Israel's cabinet stood for a moment's silence on Sunday to honor the victims. "It is hard to overstate the horror of the murder of Jews who congregate on the Sabbath and who were murdered only because they were Jews," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu added, calling on the world to unite in the fight against anti-Semitism. Bowers was taken into custody after a shootout with a SWAT team. Federal prosecutors charged him with 29 criminal counts including violence and firearms offenses, and violating U.S. civil rights laws.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said federal prosecutors could seek the death penalty. The Anti-Defamation League and Jewish Council for Public Affairs described it as the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the history of the United States, something echoed by Netanyahu who called it the "the biggest anti-Semitic crime" in the annals of the United States.

FBI special agent Bob Jones said the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which is leading the probe, said the crime scene was the worst he had seen in 22 years with the FBI. He said he believed Bowers was acting alone, adding: "We have no knowledge that he was known to law enforcement before today." KDKA television cited police sources as saying Bowers walked into the building and yelled "All Jews must die". Jones said Bowers was armed with an assault rifle and three handguns.

He said authorities believed the suspect entered the synagogue, murdered the worshippers and was leaving when he encountered a uniformed police officer. The pair exchanged gunfire, Jones said, and Bowers reentered the building before a SWAT team arrived. After a shootout, he surrendered. Bowers was taken to a hospital where he was listed in fair condition with multiple gunshot wounds. Trump said in a tweet he was watching what he described as a "devastating" situation. He told reporters the killings might have been prevented if there had been an armed guard.

"If they had some kind of a protection inside the temple maybe it could have been a much more different situation, they didn't," he said. Police are normally only present at the synagogue for security on high holidays. He called on Americans to rise above hate and ordered U.S. flags at the White House and public buildings to be flown at half-staff. He said he would visit Pittsburgh, but not when. Mourners held a candlelit vigil for the victims. The Islamic Center Of Pittsburgh offered its condolences, and called on its community to donate blood.

The shooting followed attacks on other places of worship in recent years. On April 13, 2014, a pair of shootings occurred at a Jewish Community Center and a Jewish retirement community, both located in Overland Park, Kansas. A total of three people were killed in the shootings. In 2015, a white supremacist murdered nine African Americans during a prayer service in Charleston, South Carolina. In 2012, a neo-Nazi gunman with white supremacist ties walked into a Sikh gurdwara - or house of worship - in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, and murdered six Sikh Americans.

Nope. Just another psychotic product of the amoral culture-factory.

Too bad the (D)rumpf cult has no leadership capable of demonstratively articulating moral first principles.
