Behold, the master race: Recently released video shows a white supremacist engulfed in flames after firebombing a historic synagogue in the city of Exeter, UK.
The good news: Nobody was in the building at the time, and the only one who was injured in the attack was the white supremacist, who suffered only minor injuries.
Plymouth Live reports:
Cameras captured the astonishing moment a white supremacist was engulfed in flames after pouring petrol into Exeter Synagogue and setting it alight.
Tristan Morgan was recorded on CCTV splashing fuel through a window before taking the full blast of the explosion in his face.
He then calmly walked away from the scene of the anti-semitic attack, patting his singed head, and driving off in a van.
According to reports, Tristan Morgan laughed as he set fire to the synagogue, and as he was taken away by police, Morgan said:
Please tell me that synagogue is burning to the ground, if not, it’s poor preparation.
Commenting on the terrorist attack by the white supremacist, Mr Richard Halsey, President of the Synagogue, said:
We sincerely thank the local police for their brilliant response and for their thorough investigation and support since the traumatic events of last year.A far right extremist was caught setting himself alight while trying to attack a synagogue.
Reporting on the crime the BBC notes:
Prosecutor Alistair Richardson described Morgan as having a “deep-rooted anti-Semitic belief, embodied in a desire to do harm to the Jewish community and an obsession with abhorrent anti-Semitic material”.
He said Morgan made songs “exhorting others to violence” against the Jewish community and had material that “revelled in the degenerate views of Nazi Germany and white supremacists”.He said when Morgan set the fire there was “no thought for any lives he might put at risk”.
Superintendent Matt Lawler, the Local Policing Commander for Exeter, East & Mid Devon said:
“The footage, which was played in open court, shows the level of planning, determination and intent by Morgan, whom the wider evidence clearly showed held abhorrent extreme right-wing, anti-Semitic, and white supremacist views. It is only by sheer chance that the synagogue was empty and indeed that Morgan himself sustained only minor burns.”
The synagogue, built in 1763, and the third oldest in Britain, has been repaired and is now back in service.
As for Morgan, Plymouth Live reports that the judge sentenced the white supremacist to an “indefinite hospital order,” and if he is ever released he will be the “subject of long-term monitoring by the police and partners.”
Bottom line: A white supremacist was engulfed in flames after firebombing a historic synagogue in the city of Exeter, UK.
