Man Threatens to Bomb “All Jews” Just Days After Jersey City Shooting

A New Jersey man is accused of threatening to “bomb all of the Jews” in Jersey City less than a week after the deadly attack on a kosher grocery store in Greenville, according to court documents. 

Darryl Jacobs, 47, made the threat during a Dec. 13 phone call with a county welfare worker and was arrested three days later. Police did not recover any explosives, but seized two cell phones, the criminal complaint states.

The defendant told the welfare employee, who did not know him, that he “was going to come down and bomb all the Jews in Jersey City,” according to the court document. Jacobs appeared to be intoxicated during the call, authorities said. 

Hudson County Superior Court Judge Sheila Venable ordered that he be detained throughout his prosecution during a Dec. 20 detention hearing. He faces a third-degree charge of making a terroristic threat.

Jacobs was among the 32 people arrested in a Hudson County Sheriff’s Office sweep. 

The Dec. 10 shooting that targeted JC Kosher Supermarket and ended with six dead, including the two shooters is being investigated as an anti-Semitic hate crime. Jersey City police Detective Joseph Seals was gunned down by the shooters in Bayview Cemetery that day before they went to the market to carry out their attack.
