Several years ago, two Los Angeles synagogues were targeted for terrorist attacks by Islamist inmates of a California prison. Luckily, the murderous plot was thwarted by the authorities. Ever since then, most Los Angeles synagogues, Jewish schools and institutions have hired security guards, installed gates and surveillance systems. I know several well-trained men who carry side arms to synagogue every Shabbat.
Of course, the threats to the Jewish community by Islamists will always percolate. That’s just the nature of the IslamoNazi beast. But now, a new warning has been issued regarding soft targets in America from the terrorist state of Iran.
Situational awareness in all Jewish communities should be finely honed.
Israeli facilities in North America — and around the world — are on high alert, according to an internal security document obtained by ABC News that predicted the threat from Iran against Jewish targets will increase.
