An Islamic plot to kill dozens of Jews in the Czech Republic last month was thwarted by authorities, a leading newspaper has revealed. The Mlada Fronta Dnes reported today that Muslim extremists were planning to kidnap Jews and Israelis, and hold them hostage inside a Synagogue in Prague. The group would then make unspecified demands, which they believed could not be met, in order to blow up the Synagogue killing all inside. On September 23rd, the Czech government stationed hundreds of police in the capital after intelligence revealed an terrorist attack was imminent.
Quote: ""The Foreign Ministry is aware of attempts by Muslim extremist groups to carry out attacks on Israeli representatives and Jewish communities throughout the world and is taking all the necessary steps in order to prevent them," Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev told Army Radio on Friday. Regev's statement came after a report emerged that the kidnap and murder of dozens of Czech Jews was prevented by the nation's intelligence establishment.
