ALABAMA ATTORNEY GENERAL STEVEN T. MARSHALL CONDEMNS BOMB THREATS AGAINST JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTERS INCLUDING BIRMINGHAM’S LEVITE JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTER,
PLEDGES SUPPORT TO FEDERAL EFFORT TO BRING THOSE RESPONSIBLE TO JUSTICE
(MONTGOMERY) – Alabama Attorney General Steven T. Marshall strongly condemned bomb threats made against Jewish community centers across the country, including Birmingham's Levite Jewish Community Center.
“In recent weeks, multiple bomb threats have been made against Birmingham’s Levite Jewish Community Center and similar places of faith across the nation,” said Attorney General Marshall. “I join with all law-abiding Americans in expressing disgust at such cowardly threats and want to make it absolutely clear that my office, if called upon, will commit whatever resources and support our federal partners may require to apprehend and bring to justice those responsible. Laws have already been broken when these callers made terroristic threats and the guilty must be held to account.”
