What, no demands for hate crime investigation? Oh, that’s right, only Muslims get hate crime investigations by the the FBI and DOJ when the same thing allegedly happens at a mosque.  The synagogue was full with worshipers while the incident occurred outside, but no injuries were reported. police said. Witnesses at the scene told investigators that a 2012 black Nissan with tinted windows had pulled up in front of the synagogue, and a man later identified as Musheisen exited the vehicle, lit the firecrackers and yelled the phrase before returning to his car.


Police later tracked the car to a Quick Chek parking lot. According to the report, the police found a bag of firecrackers in the car’s trunk upon search of the vehicle. Musheisen was in the car with three Muslim men from Passaic, Jersey City and Linden, said the report. 

The three Muslims were not charged in connection with the crime. According to the report, investigators believe Musheisen acted alone.
