Chicago: Police raid in case “similar” to New York synagogue jihad bombing plot
- Muslim brotherhood front group CAIR puts the usual spin on the NYC synagogue plot:Â Islam Not to Blame for Bronx Terror Plot
- “This entire scheme seems to be the product of sending yet another FBI agent provocateur into an American mosque to instigate a ‘plot’ that would likely never have been hatched but for the rhetorical and financial inducements of the government informant.”

“A source in federal law enforcement told Fox Chicago that the case is similar to one that unfolded in New York yesterday” — that is, May 21, when the Bronx synagogue plot was foiled.

Glenda Johnson saw so many police and plain clothed federal agents on her block that she thought someone had been shot.”The police was so crowded, you couldn’t even walk past. They was in trucks, they was in cars, they was in regular cars. It looked like someone had killed someone,” said Johnson.
That swarm of badges consisted of theÂ FBI, Chicago Police and the Joint Terrorism Task Force. In their sights were two buildings on the 6300 block of North Artesian. People who live in a six flat there say the feds were very interested in its basement, specifically, two storage lockers….
“They was looking for someone who lives in this building. So I was like ‘what’s the cause?’ They said ‘we don’t want to say yet, but it’s a life and death situation.’ I was like ‘wow,’” said Johnson.
