Plots against Jewish targets in U.S.

| May 21, 2009

NEW YORK (JTA) — Lone attackers or small, independent groups with no formal ties to wider terrorist networks have planned several plots against Jewish targets.

March 1, 1994 — Lebanese-born Rashid Baz opens fire on a van carrying 15 Chabad-Lubavitch rabbinical seminary students on the Brooklyn Bridge, killing Ari Halberstam, 16, and injuring three others. Raz claims he was upset by the killing of 29 Muslim worshipers in Hebron by an Israeli Jew, Baruch Goldstein, a few days earlier. Baz is convicted of second-degree murder and 14 counts of attempted murder and sentenced to 141 years in prison
