NYC police: Terror suspects wanted to commit jihad

NEW YORK (AP) - The New York City police commissioner says four
men wanted to commit jihad when they plotted to bomb a Jewish
temple and shoot down military planes in upstate New York.
At a news conference outside the Bronx temple Thursday, Police
Commissioner Raymond Kelly quoted one of the men as saying, "If
Jews were killed in this attack ... that would be all right."
However, Mayor Michael Bloomberg warned against stereotypes. He
stressed that the Riverdale Temple is open to people of all faiths,
including a Muslim girl who sometimes prays there.
The city leaders met privately with congregants Thursday
morning. Kelly said the neighborhood security was heightened to
improve residents' comfort level.
The defendants are due in federal court Thursday in White
Plains.
