FBI Arrests Terrorist Planning to Attack Synagogue

“Thank G-d they stopped him, but had they not, it would have been such a horrible thing to happen”

Federal agents arrested a man who, sources said, was planning to throw an explosive device into a South Florida synagogue.

According to law enforcement sources, the FBI set up a sting to thwart what they described as a terror attack at the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center, Friday evening. Sources said agents posing as terrorists were able to stop the suspect, who, they said, may have converted to Islam.

Sources told 7News they are concerned about this case because the suspect wanted to take some type of explosive device and chuck it over the wall. Friday was the next-to-last day of Passover, and the center was crowded with people observing the holiday.

Concerned residents said they were disturbed by the arrest. “I think about, before we had a baby, that we used to go there for services, and G-d forbid, it could have been us,” said Stephanie Levine. “Thank G-d they stopped him, but had they not, it would have been such a horrible thing to happen to this neighborhood.”

Sources said the center was never in danger because the suspect was taken into custody before any harm was done.

“Of course it surprised me,” said area resident Richard Levinson. “Everybody says, ‘I live in a small town. It doesn’t happen here,’ but the sad part is, it happens everywhere.”

Resident Kim Tepper said she’s horrified by the turn of events but ultimately not that surprised. “It’s a very scary world, and you know what? I don’t think that anybody is safe anywhere,” she said. ‘We’d always thought, living in this area, that we could be targeted, so now you’re kind of confirming that for me. Not happy.”

FBI officials declined to comment on the investigation, but 7News has learned the suspect will appear in federal court early this week.
