Report: Synagogue massacre led to string of attack plots

  Report: Synagogue massacre led to string of attack plots At least 12 white supremacists have been arrested on allegations of plotting, threatening or carrying out anti-Semitic attacks in the U.S. since the massacre at a Pittsburgh synagogue nearly one year ago, a Jewish civil rights group reported Sunday. The Anti-Defamation League also counted at least 50 incidents in which white supremacists are accused of targeting Jewish institutions' property since a gunman killed 11 worshippers at the Tree of Life synagogue on Oct. 27, 2018. Those incidents include 12 cases of vandalism involving white supremacist symbols and 35 cases in which white supremacist propaganda was distributed.

Arena was allegedly the man behind the pseudonym "McCormick H Foley," according to a report by The Philadelphia Inquirer. Previously leaked private chat logs revealed hate group members planning the 2018 "Unite the Right 2" rally, and indicate that "Foley" had hoped to confront both federal agents and anti-fascist protesters, who he would then "challenge to a fight... til one of us are not moving." Media reports appear to unmask Arena as "Foley" at least as early as June 2018. It's not clear if government officials or the Philadelphia Navy Yard were aware of the reports.

The group Arena is allegedly a member of, Vanguard America, is a fascist alt-right group founded in 2015. It is an unambiguously racist hate group that advocates for an "exclusively white" America. The group was the subject of media attention after 2017's original "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, where the man convicted of killing a woman by ramming a car into a crowd of protestors was spotted marching with the group before the attack.

"Membership in a group espousing extremist ideology is not itself illegal—but lying to the FBI is," said Michael T. Harpster, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's Philadelphia Division. "If the people we interview feel they can deceive us with impunity, critical investigations will be compromised, threatening the very integrity of the justice system. Arena lied about his history in order to obtain a security clearance he should not have had, and he lied to federal agents questioning him. These charges are the consequences of his actions."

If convicted, Arena faces the prospect of up to 25 years behind bars, along with a $1.25 million fine and three years of supervision upon release.
