Can you guess which religious group is found among the suspects?

Via Yeshiva World News:

Four New York City men were arrested Wednesday in connection with an alleged plot to blow up New York City synagogues and other city locations, WNBC reports.

Raids by the FBI-NYPD Joint Terrorist Task Force in the Bronx captured the suspected ringleader and three followers in what law enforcement sources are calling a homegrown terrorist plot.  Investigators stress the suspects’ meetings had been infiltrated early on and there was ”no chance” the alleged plot could succeed.

Investigators said several of the suspects are Muslims who allegedly talked about destroying two Jewish temples, including at least one in the Riverdale section of the Bronx. The men ordered and accepted delivery of materials they believed were bomb-making ingredients, authorities said. But investigators said they made sure the materials the suspects received were inert.

This could have been an absolute disaster. Who is to say that similar plots are not being planned in our own community?

And just in case this doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable enough, here’s a small sampling of other recent acts of good will towards the world’s Jewish community:

    Just an update on this story: the two synagogues targeted were both in Riverdale; the Riverdale Jewish Center, an orthodox synagogue, and the Riverdale Temple, a reform synagogue. The RJC is around the corner from my old apartment (I lived in Riverdale for several years.) Thank G-d this was stopped and G-d bless the amazing NYPD and FBI
