Paul Stanley took to Twitter to condemn the murder of 11 people in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania synagogue, by posting about his family lineage and a call for peace. Stanley, a Jew, who was born Stanley Eisen, spoke about how his mother fled the Nazi's in Berlin and spoke about his father's experience as a first generation Jewish American.
Stanley wrote in part: "Shockingly, I have met holocaust deniers over the years who either find the magnitude of persecution of Jews over centuries incomprehensible or would rather because of some twisted agenda choose to minimize or rationalize it. . . We are now in a frightening and dangerous time for society. But there is always hope in realization. We have power. We created this. We must end it. All of us."
