On March 18, 2000, the Los Angeles Times reported on the indictment of arson suspects from last summer's synagogue arsons. Some Jewish leaders are concerned that the trial will offer a platform for their white supremacist ideology. For Jana Uslan, president of Congregation Beth Shalom, "this indictment provides a sense of relief...(b)ut our attitude has always been: We will go on; we won't let terrorists and racists stop us from practicing Judaism." These same individuals are also under arrest for the murder of a gay couple.
