On Palm Sunday weekend the Feds made a wave of arrests of a Christian militia calling itself the “Hutaree”. According to Yahoo! news, the group “have been arming themselves to go to war with the Antichrist, “evil Jews,” and Muslims.”1
But wait - their website has a forum called “Evil Jews” with the description: “Talk about being an evil Jew and how we are taking over the world in our own private forum where no one else can see. Shalomi or something.“2 Obviously they don’t hate Jews – they identify with them. Among the links on their website is the rabidly pro-israel World Net Daily.3 These people aren’t anti-semites by a long shot.
Attorney General Eric “no civil rights for whites” Holder said the arrests dealt ”a severe blow to a dangerous organization that today stands accused of conspiring to levy war against the United States.”4
During the FBI operation, members of the ‘Hutaree’ militia made desperate phone calls to a team leader in the Southeast Michigan Volunteer Militia. The SMVM team leader, reportedly of “Islamic decent”, declined to help the ‘Hutaree’ members, likely because of their anti-Muslim beliefs. The SMV militia is currently cooperating with the FBI.5 6
The government is charging the militia members with multiple counts, including seditious conspiracy. It is also alleged by the government that the militia was planning to “commit some violent act to draw the attention of law enforcement or government officials” where they could be easily killed. The full indictment is available here.
