Speaker Silver Statement On Arrests Made In Connection With Suspected Terror Plot On Synagogues

Thursday, May 12, 2011

I commend the New York City Police Department and all our law enforcement agencies on the arrests Wednesday night of two individuals as part of a suspected terror plot against local synagogues. While Osama Bin Laden may be dead, his legacy of hate and terror is clearly still alive. These arrests are a stark reminder that New York City remains a top target for those who would do us harm, and it is important to be ever vigilant against the forces of evil.
