Each act by a lone wolf underscores how
imperiled we are, how aware we must be.

Clevenger told KSPR News in
Kansas following the Overland
Park shootings he "kind of agreed"
with Miller on some things, "but I
don't like to express that too much:'
Clevenger also said the "Jew-run,
government-backed banking indus-
try turned the United States into
the world's largest debtor nation:'
KSPR News reported.
Outraged, first-term Marionville
alderwoman Jessica Wilson and
city attorney Paul Link resigned.
Two other aldermen asked the
city board to draft a rebuke of the
mayor's rant.
At least 10 years before,
Clevenger gave a more resounding
endorsement of Miller in a letter
sent to a local newspaper. "I am a
friend of Frazier Miller helping to
spread his warnings:' Clevenger
wrote to the Aurora Advertiser.
"The Jew-run medical industry has
succeeded in destroying the United
States' workforce
On March 30, Miller called an
American Friends of Kiev fun-
draising hotline and told Rabbi
Menachem Siegal, director of the
United Jewish Communities of
Eastern Europe and Asia, that
Jews "cause all the problems" and
"destroyed the whole economy in
the United States and the world:"
Miller also said "Hitler should have
finished off the job in Europe by
coming to the United States and
getting rid of every Jew," according
to Siegal's account published in the
New York Post on Saturday.
Miller did not say during the
10-minute conversation he planned
to attack Jews. Siegal reported the
call to the U.S. Justice Department.

Standing Guard
Vigilance is the best frontline
defense against unadulterated hate.
Lone wolves, prospective or
active, may post extensively on
online hate sites. But online agita-
tion doesn't necessarily spur vio-
lence.
Therein lies the real danger.
Miller served three years in
prison on weapons charges and for
plotting to assassinate Southern
Poverty Law Center founder Morris
Dees. But he hadn't logged any
criminal charges for years. In fact,
he had alienated much of the white
supremacist movement in the
1980s when he testified against co-
conspirators to facilitate a reduced

sentence. Still, he kept up his public
drumbeat of hate through his web-
site and in radio interviews, JTA
reported.
Then there's the loner who
spends years dissipating the inher-
ent goodness within before show-
ing rage seemingly from nowhere.
The Anti-Defamation League has
found some lone wolves act alone
to limit chances of a plot being
leaked or discovered.

Sobering Backdrop
We need no reminder that lone
gunmen targeted a Federation
building in Seattle in 2006 and a
JCC in suburban Los Angeles in
1999, leaving two people dead and
10 others wounded in their bloody
wake.
Sandy Hook Elementary School
in Connecticut (2012) and Ft.
Hood in Texas (2009) are but two
examples of mass shootings by lone
wolves outside the Jewish world.
In Kansas, Frazier Glenn Miller
didn't make it inside the Jewish
Community Campus building or
Village Shalom — whatever his
intent. But his gun blasts outside
those facilities point up the dangers
of unsecured parking lots and also
echo the necessity to constantly
re-evaluate security measures. The
JCC leadership told the Kansas City
Jewish Chronicle they pledged to
commission national experts for a
comprehensive security scan of the
Campus building.
The Nonprofit Security Grant
program has released millions of
federal dollars to help nonprofits
protect their operations. An outsized
number of grantees are Jewish insti-
tutions, reflective of lingering anti-
Jewish undercurrents in America.
Meanwhile, more Jewish commu-
nity members — ordinary citizens
— must be trained to recognize the
alarm of hatred before lone wolves
sound it through gunplay. The
recommended tactic of the Secure
Community Network, the Jewish
Federations of North America's
national homeland security initia-
tive: Empower Jews "through edu-
cation and knowledge" in "how to
identify a suspicious person — how
to face an active shooter:'
However on guard Jewish Detroit
is thanks to Federation and agency
leadership, it stands to benefit from
a commitment to such empower-
ment.
