A black man who did not like the relationship between blacks and the Jewish community threatened to blow up a synagogue
Dante Phearse, 32, has been charged with three counts of making terroristic threats. Phearse called and made threats against the Beth Israel Jewish Synagogue. Phearse said that there were no white Jewish people, only black Jewish people, and said that he was going to blow up the temple. He then called back and said that Jewish people were oppressing the black man and threatened to rape their women and children. Phearse’s bond was set at $115,000.
