An anti-Semitic radical who was described by police in Indianapolis as a "terrorist" was infuriated by the fact that Israel was responding to the terror attack by its civilians by members of Hamas.
So she spotted a school with a sign containing the Star of David and deliberately ran her car into the building, police reported.
No one was hurt, but a report in National Review explained that the scheme by Ruba Almaghtheh, 34, an "Arab-American," was a big backfire.
What she thought was a Jewish school actually belonged to a group called the Israelite School of Universal and Practical Knowledge, a sect of Black Hebrew Israelites who themselves are anti-Semitic.
Members, African-Americans, say they are the "true" descendants of Israel.
A police report accessed by local reporters said officers were summoned to investigate a "hate" crime at the school, and Almaghtheh was arrested on charges of criminal recklessness.
"Almaghtheh allegedly told officers that she had been watching news coverage of the Israel-Hamas war and 'couldn’t breathe anymore,' which led her to plan an attack on the building. The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said she referenced 'her people back in Palestine' and told officers, 'Yes. I did it on purpose,'" National Review reported.
The report said an investigation was under way, but the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis confirmed Safe Indiana, a security program, was told immediately so member groups were aware of the possible threat.
Officials of the federation said, "Safety and security for our community is of the utmost importance, and we are more secure and prepared than ever before."
It called the attack on an anti-Semitic group an "ironic misidentification."
IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Shortly after Hamas terrorists fired over 5,000 rockets from Gaza into Israel on Oct. 7 and then proceeded to attack the Jewish state by land, sea and air – torturing, burning, beheading and murdering well over a thousand people, including women, children and infants, and wounding and abducting hundreds more – world reaction was, in its own way, almost equally shocking.
For after the biggest one-day mass slaughter of Jews since the Nazi Holocaust, what followed was an outpouring of celebratory demonstrations, unbridled Jew-hatred, deliriously gleeful support for Hamas and bitter condemnation of the nation of Israel. Not just in the Arab-Muslim world, but throughout the Western world as well, including all across America.
Why? What is behind the explosion of anti-Israel, anti-Jewish, pro-terror sentiment in the United States, where Israel has long been one of America's closest friends and allies? Why are hordes of young "woke" LGBT demonstrators marching in support of Hamas – when Hamas wouldn't think twice about binding and blindfolding them and throwing them off the roof of a tall building – as they routinely do in the Muslim world?
It turns out there's one area of agreement that is so powerful, deep-seated and all-consuming that the vast differences between the deranged left and the murderous jihadists melt away into Kumbaya harmony.
All of this and much more is completely exposed in November's issue of WND's critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled ISRAEL VS. GLOBAL JIHAD: How Jew-hatred, radical Islam and Leftism are pushing us toward World War III. Beyond a deeply insightful dive into why leftists are surging toward radical Islam – which hates and dreams of raping and butchering them – this Whistleblower issue includes fantastic articles by everyone from top Israeli analyst (and former Israel Defense Forces officer) Caroline Glick to Harvest Christian Fellowship's Pastor Greg Laurie on the current war in Israel and biblical prophecies regarding the End Times … which he says are now upon us.
