FBI Thwarts Mass Shooting Planned By Muslim At Masonic Temple in Milwaukee

Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested a Milwaukee man who planned a mass shooting, according to a release by United States Attorney’s Office of Eastern District of Wisconsin.

Samy Mohamed Hamzeh, 23, has been charged with possessing machine guns and a silencer.

In October 2015, 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.

During recorded conversations, Hamzeh explained that he wanted to commit a domestic act of violence on a Masonic Temple in Milwaukee.

    Given his likely IQ I suspect he got confused between MASONIC temple and JEWISH temple.

      A lot of Jihadis (Not to mention various other types of antisemites in general) hate the Freemasons with nearly the same level of unholy fury as they hate Judaism.

        Yes. Years go I encountered this wide-eyed wing-nut who railed against Jews, freemasons, and a mysterious group of aliens living under the Greenland ice cap. I forgot what the aliens were called. This fellow was a candidate for mental institution.

    • Trump’s poll numbers will go up in Milwaukee.

    It will be interesting to see what will be left of Muslims in America if they piss off the Illuminati.

    “A domestic act of violence”?

  • lgeubank

    If our government had an ounce of sanity, a guy named Samy Mohamed Hamzeh would never be in this country.

    Stop being so islameophobic.
    There is no mention anywhere in the cBS report that he is a follower of the prophet.
    He was probably bullied by whites in school because of his obvious intense inbrededness.
