More Domestic Terror Arrests

Here’s the latest news from the ever-vigilant Department of Homeland Security:

Eight Arrested in FBI Raids on Jewish Militia Group

BROOKLYN, NY, APRIL 1 (CNN) — At least eight people have been arrested in raids by a FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Force in Crown Heights as part of an investigation into a Brooklyn-based Jewish militia group known as Jootaree. Federal agents made simultaneous arrests in Brooklyn and also at the terrorist group’s “Bar Schlemiel” training camp in the Poconos.

“People think of domestic terrorism as coming mainly from Christian extremists,” said FBI spokesmen Hadley Torquemason, “but that’s not true. The Bureau has noticed a dramatic upsurge in Jewish terrorism, especially among reformed congregations in Brooklyn, Passaic, and Miami Beach.”

April Fool — helo lands among the JootareeThe smell of helicopter exhaust mixed with the scent of freshly-baked matzo in the Bar Schlemiel compound as the FBI choppers landed in the middle of the camp to make their arrests. The raid came so suddenly that the terrorists were caught by surprise, and surrendered without resistance.

The suspects are expected to make an initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Manhattan on Monday.

On Thursday, the FBI confirmed that federal law enforcement agents were conducting activities in several Brooklyn neighborhoods and the Poconos in connection to Jootaree, a Jewish militia group. FBI Special Agent Tammy McTavish told the CNN that the federal warrants in the case are under court seal and declined further comment.

WABC-TV reports that helicopters were spotted in the sky for much of Wednesday night, and agents set up checkpoints throughout the area. Witnesses told the station that it was like a small army had descended on the area. The Department of Homeland Security and the Joint Terrorism Task Force are also involved in the raids.

Other area Jewish militia groups were quick to disassociate themselves with the Jootaree. Avram Rabinowicz, a spokesman for the Righteous Yid Army of Hackensack, denounced the Jootaree. “Last night and into today the FBI conducted a raid against homes belonging to the Jootaree. They are a religious cult. They are not part of our militia community,” he said. “They are more of survivalist group and in an emergency they collect kosher supplies and then withdraw to the Poconos to stand their ground.”

Moishe Cohen, a spokesman for an Orthodox congregation in Crown Heights, was not happy about the arrests. “These Reformed extremist groups get all the media attention. What are we, chopped liver?”

The FBI declined to comment on how extensive the Jootaree group is. “All I’m willing to say is that home-grown Jewish terrorism is a greater danger than most people think,” Torquemason said. “We’ve already locked up most of the Christian groups, so what other religious extremists are left?

“OK, maybe there are a few Buddhist nut cases here and there, with their yellow robes and AK-47s and all. But they aren’t the real danger.”

Nice April Fools Day joke; yet, you forgot the part where during the raid, a Jewish militia member called a militia in New Jersey but was denied help: the contacted militia member was a Muslim working with Homeland Security investigating Jewish militias.

Nice joke, I suppose, though when I started reading it I thought it was serious. What does that say about my view of the world and government at this point? Idk, but I wouldn't have been surprised to find out this was real, considering the history of the Jews.

Nice to know Jihad Jane can get away with stuff, but Ben David can't.

Also, not joking, can anyone tell me about a rumor I hear that the Hutaree Christian guys were actually planing on going after Muslim extreme/terrorists and not the police? I thought I spotted it on this site back when news first came out and no one knew what was happening. Any info would be helpful.

Bombs R Us stores today started selling the halal version of Monopoly in which players use immigration to occupy streets. The buildings are already there and the object of the game is to bomb them. Then players use public funding and sharia finance to build mosques and cultural centers.

Terrorist training camps in the Pocono's had me rolling. Not to mention the crack troops known as the Shecky Green brigade. Trained on the grounds of the Nevele resort. Their specialty is highly skilled interrogation techniques using the works of Jackie Mason to break the enemy down. If that doesn't work they merely bring in a bevy of Jewish mothers who make the prisoners feel so guilty they spill all they know.

Due to the inability of some of our commenters to abide by the rules, I have had to close this thread to further comments.

I regret the fact that this became necessary.
