Ethnic intimidation, terrorist threats, and assault at Jewish summer camp

Camp Bonmin, a Jewish summer camp in Pennsylvania for children aged 6-20, has been the object of multiple anti-Semitic threats and assaults throughout the past month. Suspects finally face charges for ethnic intimidation and other hateful actions.

From ABC News:

Five people face charges for allegedly terrorizing a Jewish summer camp in Pennsylvania.

In three separate episodes earlier this month, three adults and two juveniles caused property damage as they sped dangerously through Camp Bonim in Wayne County in a pickup truck, shouting anti-Semitic epithets and firing paintball guns at campers and staff, District Attorney Janine Edwards said in a press release. The three adults were arrested Wednesday morning and face felony and misdemeanor charges, including ethnic intimidation, terroristic threats and assault.

“These children were terrorized and in fear for their lives by the actions of this group,” Edwards said in the release. “The vicious, cruel and obscene nature of the language hurled at the campers is unspeakable. Luckily none of the children suffered any serious physical injury, however, the emotional damage is immeasurable.”

    Jesus Christ told us, that with what measure we mete out, so shall we be judged. He also said that if we cursed the Jews, we would also be cursed.Why do people think they are better than others?

Rabbi's Commentary
Remembering the Terror of 9/11, Confronting the Terror of Today

The attacks on 9/11 were a wake-up call to the dangers of Islamist terrorism, and the swift growth of terrorist groups such as the Islamic State should wake us up to a current threat that demands not just our vigilance, but also our unity.
