Breaking News out of Milwaukee! An Islamic extremist planning a “San Bernardino-style” attack was aprehended by the FBI.
The FBI has arrested a man who it says was planning a mass shooting at a Masonic temple in Milwaukee
Samy Mohamed Hamzeh, 23, has been charged with possession of machine guns and a silencer. The FBI said he wanted to kill as many as 30 people.
According to the criminal complaint, Hamzeh had been under investigation since September.
The investigation showed that in October, Hamzeh planned to travel to Jordan, enter the West Bank, and conduct an attack on Israeli soldiers and citizens living in the West Bank.
Hamzeh later abandoned those plans and began to focus on conducting an attack in the United States.
Authorities began to record his conversations in October and during the calls, Hamzeh explained that he wanted to commit a domestic act of violence. Earlier this month, he settled on a Masonic temple in Milwaukee as his target.
Thank you FBI, for saving DOZENS of lives!
Is it time to take Islamic Terrorism seriously?
