WASHINGTON (JTA) — A note discovered in the car of the alleged Holocaust museum shooter declares that President Barack Obama is controlled by Jews.

According to court papers released June 11, the note was discovered in the car of  James von Brunn, the 88-year-old white supremacist who has been charged with murder in the death of a security guard June 10 at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. The car was parked outside the museum.

Inside a notebook, the handwritten note said, "You want my weapons — this is how you’ll get them. The Holocaust is a lie. Obama was created by Jews. Obama does what Jew owners tell him to do. Jews captured America’s money. Jews control the mass media. The First Amendment is abrogated — henceforth …"

Von Brunn could face the death penalty if convicted in the murder of 39-year-old Stephen T. Johns, according to media reports. He also faces a charge of killing while in possession of a firearm in a federal facility. He remains hospitalized after being shot in the face multiple times by other security guards after he opened fire on Johns.
