Bomb threats have been reported at Jewish institutions, with more in the U.S. and now some coming to Canada.
Young children were evacuated from the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre in Toronto as a bomb threat was called in at around 10am yesterday. The Jewish Community Centre of London, Ontario received a threat at almost the same time.
Both were evacuated without incident.
Also on Tuesday, the Anti-Defamation League’s headquarters in New York were also targeted with a bomb threat, for the second time in two months. Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL’s CEO, said in a statement that “this is not normal. We will not be deterred or intimidated”.
There were at least seven other bomb threats on Tuesday, this despite the fact that an individual was arrested last week on suspicion of having carried out some of the previous threats.
