Richard Holzer Arrested In Plot To Blow Up Pueblo’s Temple Emanuel [synagogue]

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

In the United States a man was arrested who wanted to commit an attack on a synagogue. The 27-year-old man from the state of Colorado is said to have planned a bomb attack on the Temple Emanuel Synagogue in Pueblo city, south of Denver. Court documents show that he wanted to unleash a “racial holy war”.

Richard Holzer was arrested last weekend after he accepted 14 dynamite sticks and two pipe bombs from some men and women about whom he thought they supported him. That turned out to be undercover FBI agents and the explosives turned out to be fake. He is said to have intended to commit the attack that day.

According to the FBI, Holzer told the agents that he is a skinhead and that he used to be a member of the Ku Klux Klan. He is said to have glorified violence on Facebook and spread messages in which he recommended white supremacy.

Mein Kampf

He is also said to have been very anti-Semitic on several occasions in his contact with the undercover agents. When he met one of them, he was “wearing a Nazi armband” according to the FBI. He is also said to have had the book Mein Kampf [by Adolf Hitler] with him.

A group of men wearing large white kippas and tallesim handed out fliers promoting Holocaust denial and hung up cards bearing anti-Semitic canards on a pedestrian mall in Boulder, Colorado. The fliers handed out at Boulder’s Pearl Street Mall by the men who appeared to be posing as Jews claimed the Holocaust was “impossible”. The men also hung notes on index cards around the mall that claimed “Academia is dominated by Marxist Jews”, Jews run the porn industry,” and “Jews ran the Atlantic slave trade,” the Daily Camera newspaper reported: here.

In addition to Holzer, at least 12 other people have been arrested for participating in plots to attack Jews since the Tree of Life shooting, according to the Anti-Defamation League.

    (JTA) — The New Jersey man arrested for allegedly ordering the vandalism of two synagogues in other states on behalf of a neo-Nazi group was released from jail and sent to house arrest.

    Richard Tobin was released last week by a federal magistrate in Camden on a $100,000 bond, The Associated Press reported late Monday. He was ordered to stay off the internet and refrain from contact with current and former members of the neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups called The Base and Atomwaffen Division, AP reported, citing court records.

    Tobin, who was arrested by the FBI in November, is accused of using The Base social network to find volunteers for the September graffiti attacks on synagogues in Michigan and Wisconsin.

    Tobin also allegedly said he planned the attacks as part of a nationwide campaign he called Operation Kristallnacht, a reference to the 1938 pogrom against Jewish homes, synagogues and Jewish-owned businesses in Germany and Austria.

    He has also confessed to driving to a New Jersey mall with a machete that he planned to use to kill black shoppers.
