  Case of accused Pittsburgh terrorist bomb plotter may see 2020 trial The prosecution of a man accused of plotting a church bombing will almost certainly drag into next year, due to the volume of the evidence against him and the fact that much of it is in Arabic, attorneys at a status conference in federal court said Wednesday. Mustafa Alowemer, 21, of Northview Heights, is charged with attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization (ISIS), and distribution of information related to explosives in furtherance of a crime of violence. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

Holzer was arrested on Nov. 4 after an undercover sting by FBI agents, who said he plotted to bomb the Temple Emanuel synagogue in Pueblo, Colorado. The temple, built in 1900, is the second oldest synagogue in the state and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Colorado Federal Public Defender's Office, which represents Holzer, declined to comment.

Hate crimes in the United States jumped by 17 percent and anti-Jewish attacks spiked 37 percent in 2017, the most recent year for which statistics are available, according to the FBI.

Holzer's arrest came just over a year after the worst attack on a Jewish community in U.S. history when a lone gunman opened fire at a Pittsburgh synagogue on Oct. 27, 2018, killing 11 people.

Colorado Synagogue Bomb Suspect to Remain in Jail. Politics. U.S. Attorney Jason Dunn in Denver and FBI Denver Division Special Agent in Charge Dean The Temple Emanuel synagogue is the second-oldest in Colorado and was completed in 1900, according to Temple Emanuel’s website.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, FBI agents tracked Holzer's social media accounts in which he allegedly professed a hatred of Jews, and exchanged "white supremacy ideology ... including racially-motivated acts of violence" with like-minded individuals.

"I wish the Holocaust really did happen ... they need to die," Holzer said in one posting, the affidavit said.

Posing as fellow white supremacists, the undercover agents then contacted Holzer via a Facebook message and he sent them photos of a swastika and pictures of himself wearing clothing with white supremacy symbols and phrases, the FBI said.

Agents later met with Holzer, who lived in Pueblo, and he broached the idea of bombing the synagogue, the affidavit said. The FBI provided him with inert pipe bombs and dynamite to see if he was serious about carrying out the plot.

Following his arrest, Holzer waived his right to remain silent and told investigators he wanted to bomb the temple because it was "a cancer" in Pueblo, a city of 112,000 about 100 miles south of Denver.

Holzer is set to appear before a federal magistrate judge on Monday to be advised of the new charges. (Reporting by Keith Coffman; Editing by Bill Tarrant and Daniel Wallis)
