A 20-year-old man living with his parents in Florida is accused of encouraging a terrorist attack in Kansas City on today’s 14th anniversary of Sept. 11, the Washington Post reports.
Joshua Ryne Goldberg was charged with distribution of information relating to explosives, destructive devices, and weapons of mass destruction.
“Hopefully there will be some jihad on the anniversary of 9/11,” Goldberg is accused of telling an FBI informant in a direct message.
The FBI said lengthy discussions occurred between Goldberg and the informant.
“The Jews are the worst enemies of Allah,” a social media post read. “When Islam conquers Australia, every single Jew will be slaughtered like the filthy cockroaches that they are.”
Goldberg is accused of offering to help detonate a bomb.
“Have you decided what kind of attack to carry out on 9/11 … I was thinking a bombing. We could make pipe bombs and detonate them at a large public event.”
