One of the suspects in the alleged plot to bomb the British Columbia Legislature had previously made anti-Semitic statements online.

John Stewart Nuttall, 38, wrote in March, “The Jews killed Jesus (they are proud of it),” the Canadian Jewish News reported.

Nuttall also wrote, “Israel attacked the USS Liberty in a false flag op to try and bring us to war. We are sick of the Jews trying to run our lives and it is about time they fought their own war.”

Shimon Fogel, CEO of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, condemned the statements.

“The anti-Semitic comments and postings of the accused, which attempt to advance tired, idiotic stereotypes about Jews, appear to be part of a broader attitude of intolerance and hatred,” Fogel told CJN.

Nuttall and Amanda Marie Korody have been charged with plotting to attack the B.C. Legislature on July 1, Canada Day, with pressure cooker bombs.
