Further adventures of those who claim the moral high ground.

“NYC synagogues, museum receive fake bomb threats, New York officials say,” Jerusalem Post, May 5, 2024:

At least four synagogues and a museum in both Manhattan and Brooklyn received bomb threats on Saturday, but none were deemed credible by the New York Police Department, a city official said.

Of the bomb threats, three were targeted at Congregation Rodeph Sholom on W. 83rd, Congregation Beit Simchat Torah on West 30th Street, and Chabad of Midtown on 5th Av & 43rd.

A police spokesperson said there was also an emailed bomb threat to the Brooklyn Museum and one to a Brooklyn Heights Synagogue on Remsen Street., with no evidence of any explosive device detected.

The email sent to the Brooklyn Museum included threats to blow up the East Parkway/Brooklyn Museum subway station. According to a CBS report, the MTA said an unusual package was reported outside the station, but service was not affected.

Manhattan Borough President Mark D. Levine said on X the bomb threats were “a clear hate crime, and part of a growing trend of ‘swatting’ incidents targeting Jewish institutions.”

“This is a clear effort to sow fear in the Jewish community. Cannot be accepted,” he said.

The New York Post reported the threats prompted the evacuations of at least two Manhattan synagogues….

Lebanese Migrant Detained At Border With Bomb Supplies Admits Ties To Hezbollah

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) told the press that a 22-year-old Lebanese immigrant who was detained on March 9th for entering the country illegally near El Paso, Texas, claimed to be a former member of Hezbollah who was traveling to New York and intended “to make a bomb.”

However, other reports have stated that he is a current member of Hezbollah.

According to the New York Post, Basell Ebbadi informed federal officials that he had been trained for seven years by the Iran-backed terrorist group and had worked for four more years as an armed guard at weapons facilities.

Ebbadi admitted to the agents that he intended “to make a bomb” after entering the United States. Before attempting to enter the country, the Lebanese man explained that he had a fake identification card with a false identity and birthday.

Ebbadi was also acting quite confidently, according to a CBP source, who labeled him as “bloviating and acting with machismo.”

He is now marked for deportation.

This occurs at a time when, according to federal officials, migrant interactions with the U.S. Border Patrol in the El Paso Sector have continued to increase over the last few weeks. In the last two weeks, border officials in the area have encountered at least 1,100 migrants on an average day. It is a combination of groups of undocumented foreign nationals attempting to avoid arrest and conviction in their own countries as well as asylum-seekers attempting to surrender at the border wall in order to live a better life.

Hezbollah is known as one of the world’s most dangerous terrorist groups. Its aim is to completely annihilate Israel, similar to that of Hamas. Arab media sources have even reported that the terrorist group applauded Hamas’s October 7th terrorist operation inside Israel.

According to Reuters, the terror group stated that it was in direct contact with the leadership of the Palestinian resistance throughout the strike against Israel on October 7th.

The U.S. Border Patrol has detected at least 59 individuals who are on terror watchlists attempting to pass between ports of entry since October, continuing a notable trend that began after Joe Biden was elected in 2021. According to official data, less than ten individuals on the list were encountered annually during the fiscal years 2017 and 2020.

Ebbadi is now being imprisoned at the El Paso Sector Hardened Facility.

Report reveals that Iran is capable of ‘making a nuclear bomb in one week’

Had the sanctions that Donald Trump imposed continued against Iran, its speed in developing a nuclear bomb would not have been possible, so we know who, at least in part, to thank for this alarming development: Obama and Biden.

“Iran capable of building nuclear bomb in one week, report finds as Middle East tensions flare,” by Anders Hagstrom, Fox News, February 7, 2024:

An Iran watchdog group says the country has enough weapons-grade uranium to build a nuclear weapon in just one week.

The Institute for Science and International Security published the findings in a report on Monday, saying Tehran could produce a total of six bombs in a month.

“The volatile situation in the region is providing Iran with a unique opportunity and increased internal justification for building nuclear weapons while the United States and Israel’s resources to detect and deter Iran from succeeding are stretched thin,” the report states. “Iran’s nuclear weapons capabilities are more dangerous than they have ever been, while its relations with the West are at a low point.”

Iran can “break out and produce enough weapon-grade enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon in a week, using only a fraction of its 60% enriched uranium,” the report continued. “This breakout could be difficult for inspectors to detect promptly, if Iran took steps to delay inspectors’ access.”

Iran has been steadily growing its ability to produce enriched uranium in recent years. The substance needs to be enriched to roughly 90% before being used in a nuclear weapon. Iran has an extensive supply of 60% enriched uranium that could quickly be siphoned off and enriched further…..

Evidence Mounts That the Government Planted Pipe Bombs at Capitol on January 6

If you were anywhere near the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, the federal government would have been able to figure that out. In fact, the Biden administration recently announced it wasn’t just going to limit its aggressive prosecution and denial of due process rights to those who entered the Capitol Building peacefully, but even those who stayed outside.

They know who they are, and anyone who supports Trump will be treated like a criminal, and so far more than 1,200 people have been arrested on one dubious charge or another, many of whom were tracked down from across the country.

Yet, with all the technology they have to identify any random person who was anywhere near the Capitol that day, one big mystery remains: who planted pipe bombs at RNC and DNC headquarters the day before?

They have surveillance footage of a suspect. And yet, three years later, the FBI has managed to track down every nonviolent observer and elderly grandmother who was in town that day, but not the suspect. The FBI’s handling of this particular aspect of their J6 investigation has been suspicious, to say the least, and the agency has failed to comply with requests from Congress for more information about it.

So, what gives? Well, according to Tucker Carlson, "It seems likely that government officials were involved in planting pipe bombs in Washington, D.C. three years ago, as part of an effort to keep Donald Trump from running for president again."

Carlson covered this with Darren Beattie of Revolver News in his latest episode of "Tucker Carlson Uncensored."

They discussed video showing a man approaching law enforcement outside the DNC building on Jan. 6, around 1:05 p.m. According to Beattie, the man was alerting the police about a pipe bomb nearby, emphasizing that Kamala Harris was expected to visit. The video shows that law enforcement was completely unconcerned, despite the fact that people, including children, are walking nearby.

“What the individual in the backpack is doing is alerting the Metro PD and the Secret Service of the fact that there is a pipe bomb just feet away that was planted by the park bench outside of the DNC,” Beattie told Tucker. “Now, for those watching this video — and everyone has to watch this video to follow along — the first thing that will strike you as remarkable is just how utterly unconcerned both the Metro PD and the Secret Service are about being informed that there was a pipe bomb, literally within feet of them and within feet of their protectee, who was VP-Elect Kamala Harris.”

“You’ll notice if you watch from approximately 107 to 109 in the timestamp. "Utterly lackadaisical, utterly unconcerned,” he continued. "It takes them minutes to even get out of their vehicles, at which point they’re just kind of lingering around, uninterested. Unconcerned.”

Beattie noted that this moment was “enough to be a national scandal and blow up in this investigation, with severity.”

He’s right. Why wasn’t the area cleared right away? Shouldn’t it have been discovered much earlier in a security sweep of the area because of Harris’s planned visit? According to Beattie, the bomb had to have been there for roughly 17 hours. Beattie also wondered why Harris hasn’t ever exploited this particular story.

“You would think that of all institutions, the DNC would be interested in covering the identity of the person — allegedly, this MAGA terrorist who planted an explosive device right outside of their national headquarters —  and yet they seem to be the least interested, all the way up to the fact that Kamala Harris, the vice president, has for some reason forgone the opportunity of milking politically the fact that she was at the DNC while the pipe bomb was there,” Beattie pointed out.

The person who alerted the Metro PD and Secret Service was also originally unidentified before being revealed as a plainclothes Capitol Police officer.

“The surveillance footage does not reveal anything consistent with the idea that there was some kind of commotion or aggressive search going on that could have plausibly led to the discovery of the DNC bomb after the RNC one was found. It was total nonchalance; nothing going on that would be consistent with that,” Beattie told Tucker. “And so if we don’t have this story that okay, the RNC one was discovered, and for some reason they assume there must be one at the DNC, which would be a bizarre leap of logic to begin with, but that we see that there was no concern, no commotion, no urgency whatsoever at the DNC. That leaves us with yet another remarkable coincidence that the DNC bomb just happened to be discovered within that narrow, 15-minute time frame of the discovery of the RNC bomb after sitting out there for 17 hours.”

Numerous State Capitols Locked Down After Bomb Threats

Multiple state capitols across the United States received bomb threats, which led to evacuations and lockdowns, however, no evidence of explosives were found. 

The states that were involved in the evacuations included Connecticut, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi and Montana on Wednesday morning. 

In Georgia, Gabriel Sterling, an elections official with the Office of the Secretary of State, wrote on X at 8:30 a.m. ET that there was a bomb threat at the Georgia state Capitol. 

Governor Andy Beshear (D-Ky.) said on X that their state capitol was also evacuated with police investigating a threat at the Secretary of State’s Office. 

The announcement by Beshear came as Kentucky lawmakers were meeting in the Capitol annex for ethics training. 

Additionally, public safety officials locked down the Mississippi Capitol after receiving a bomb threat on the second day of the legislative session. 

“This is an ongoing investigation and there is no further threat to the Capitol or surrounding buildings,” said Bailey Martin, a spokesperson for the Mississippi Department of Public Safety.

The bomb threats across the country come after a number of recent false reports of shootings at the homes of officials in recent days. 

Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), was targeted by a fake emergency call on Christmas morning. 

Furthermore, Maine’s Secretary of State Shenna Bellows (D-Maine.) was also a target of a “swatting” attempt a day after she removed former President Donald Trump’s name from the state’s presidential ballot. 

Hundreds of swatting cases occur each year against public officials.

Hamas-linked CAIR condemns Biden administration for giving Netanyahu ‘green light’ to resume Gaza bombing

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2023/12/hamas-linked-cair-condemns;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Israel has no choice but to eliminate Hamas and send the message far and wide that Israel intends not only to continue to exist, but to stand strong as a Jewish state. The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has for many years viewed the Democrats as friends who kowtow to them, as well as to other Muslim lobbies. Biden has given Muslim Brotherhood-linked lobbies abundant reason to believe this. Now these groups expect more from Biden: that he facilitates the Muslim Brotherhood’s desire to see Israel destroyed, because that is what will happen if Israel halts its war on Hamas — which is a Muslim Brotherhood offshoot. In fact, the Muslim Brotherhood seeks a global caliphate.

Since 2014, the United Arab Emirates’ ministerial cabinet has listed CAIR as a terrorist group; but as one would expect, CAIR protested the label and called it “bizarre.”

“CAIR Calls on Biden Admin to Demand Ceasefire Extension After Israeli Bombing Kills 100+ Civilians”, CAIR, December 4, 2023:

(WASHINGTON, DC – 12/1/2023) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today condemned the Biden administration for giving the Israeli government the “green light” to resume bombing Gaza and called on the United States to join other governments in demanding the resumption of the ceasefire and negotiations to secure a just, lasting peace. Israel’s renewed bombing campaign has already killed more than 100 Palestinian civilians….

New York: 15 synagogues hit with bomb threats on Friday

“Make ready for them all that you can of force and of warhorses, so that by them you may strike terror in the enemy of Allah and your enemy…” (Qur’an 8:60)

“15 New York synagogues hit with false bomb threats on Friday,” by Luke Tress, New York Jewish Week, December 1, 2023 (thanks to the Geller Report):

(New York Jewish Week) – Bomb threats were made against 15 synagogues in New York State early Friday morning, according to a Jewish security agency in New York City.

Threats were made against five synagogues in Manhattan, two in Brooklyn, one on Long Island, two in Westchester County, and five in other parts of upstate New York, according to the Community Security Initiative, which coordinates security for Jewish institutions in the New York City area.

The threats were made as part of a campaign intended to interrupt synagogue operations by forcing law enforcement to go to a location, and there did not appear to be any actual danger to the targets, said CSI Director Mitch Silber.

The Friday morning campaign, mostly sent through synagogue websites’ contact forms, appeared similar to dozens of bomb threats that have been made against Jewish institutions since the summer. Many of those threats were sent via email and all of them were deemed not credible after investigation by law enforcement. In some cases, threats on synagogues have caused Shabbat services to be evacuated.

“There are multiple explosives inside the synagogue,” read one of the threats sent Friday via email. “These explosives will go off in a few hours and I will make history. I will make sure you all die.”

Friday’s threats also come amid a spike in antisemitic hate crimes in New York City and across the United States following the Oct. 7 Hamas attack on Israel and the ensuing war in Gaza. Jews are consistently targeted in hate crimes more than any other group in New York City, with over 230 antisemitic incidents reported to police so far this year….

“None of them have been real” threats, Silber said. “They’re really just to disrupt, to intimidate.”

The New York Police Department said it had responded to threats against synagogues on the Upper East Side, the Upper West Side and in Washington Heights and Inwood. One of the calls reporting the threats came in at 5:29 a.m, a police spokesperson said.

The spokesperson confirmed police officers responded to threats against at least two Orthodox synagogues, one on the Upper West Side and one in Washington Heights. Officers swept the premises, deemed the locations safe, and both congregations resumed operations….

“Kill them wherever you find them…” (Qur’an 2:191, 4:89, cf. 9:5)

“ISIS releases sick video calling for attacks on Jewish people in US and Europe,” by Ryan Fahey, Mirror, November 14, 2023:

Terror group ISIS has released a sickening video in which they called for followers to attack Jewish people in Europe and the US and to bomb Israeli embassies across the globe.

The twisted footage includes the extremists also calling for its members to put on suicide vests to carry out attacks against US forces stationed in the Persian Gulf….

ISIS made a similar announcement last month in issue 413 of al-Naba – a weekly newspaper produced by the terror mob. In the editorial, the group called for terrorists to take up arms and attack Jewish neighborhoods across the world.

They urged jihadists to attack synagogues, nightclubs, and businesses linked to Jewish people. The terror group wrote: “Target synagogues scattered everywhere. Attacking Jewish nightclubs and targeting their visitors with murder. Target the Jewish economic interests spread across the world.

“Educate generations that the battle with the Jews is purely ideological, neither patriotic nor national. And that the battlefield includes all places of Jewish existence and is not limited to Palestine. We invite you to join the caliphate, which seeks to remove the borders and dams that prevent them from the fight.”
