Jewish Center Bomb Threat Suspect is Arrested in Israel
An Israeli teenager with US citizenship was arrested for making bomb threats against Jewish institutions in the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. Since the beginning of the year, Jewish centers around the United States have faced more than 100 bomb threats. People threatening violence like this are hard to trace because of modern technology that can hide their location and change their voices on the phone. Unfortunately, anti-Semitism is still prominent today and Jewish people are still faced with hate and discrimination by ignorant, hateful people.
This relates to our Civil Rights unit because Jewish people have been and still are being discriminated against and threatened, just like many other groups of people in America and around the world.
Why do you think racism and discrimination still exists? How do you think the American government should deal with these threats?
