With the arrest of a second Lodi resident, the Bergen County Prosecutors Office (BCPO) says that it has resolved all the executed and planned attacks on area synagogues that took place in December and January.
Nineteen-year-old Aakash Dalal was arraigned on Monday as co-conspirator in the most dangerous attacks, in which firebombs were thrown into the rabbis residence at Congregation Beth El in Rutherford. According to Prosecutor John Molinelli, who announced the arrest at an afternoon press conference on Friday, March 2, Dalal has been friends since middle school with Anthony M. Graziano, who was arrested in January and charged with nine counts of attempted murder for the Rutherford attack.

Dalal pleaded not guilty at his arraignment. He and Graziano are being held on $2.5 million bond each at the Bergen County jail.
The prosecutor said Dalal orchestrated all five anti-Semitic incidents, which began in December with anti-Semitic graffiti spray-painted on synagogues in Maywood and Hackensack, and concluded with a planned, but never executed, attack on the Jewish Community Center of Paramus.
Following Grazianos arrest, a message fingering Dalal as the mastermind was anonymously posted in the comments of news reports about the arrest, including on The Jewish Standards website.
I have personally known anthony for a few years now. he is not mentally all there he needs help, he shouldnt be serving his time in prison he should be placed in a psychiatric hospital. he has been influenced/taking under the wing by and individual named aakash dalal. this individual has put thoughts into his head that rich upper class people of the jewish community are going to take over the world. I believe that this individual made anthony commit these actions to aid in the movement dalal is trying to create.
The Jewish Standard forwarded the message to the BCPO, which began investigating Dalal and obtained text messages exchanged by the two teenagers.
On the day of Grazianos arrest, a letter to the editor signed by Aakash Dalal was published on the website of the Rutgers student newspaper, The Daily Targum, defending Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul and attacking the Federal Reserve. It identified Dalal as a sophomore majoring in chemistry and biological sciences.
Acquaintances of Dalal described him as someone who was difficult to get along with, and an atheist who hated religion.
I got into arguments with him for his views on Muslims, Jews, and pretty much any religion, wrote Ishan Patel at the NJ.com website. The kid was very smart in high school, but people including myself thought he was weird.
Dalals attorney said that while text messages show communication between Dalal and Graziano, that itself is not criminal. The text messages show Graziano boasting of his attack on the Rutherford synagogue, and Dalal egging him on. Dalal was not actually at the attack, for which Graziano faces nine counts of attempted murder, because he was in New Hampshire campaigning for Ron Paul, Dalals attorney said.
Ron Paul has got to be the unluckiest candidate in history to have so many things happen to him, around him, on behalf of him, etc.
Something is wrong here. Isn’t it the Muslims that are more persecuted in the US? According to CAIR they are.
I don’t think this guy is Muslim. His name sounds Indian. Yes, there are Muslim Indians, but:
The Aakash I knew was intelligent, interesting to talk to and fiercely passionate about his beliefs. I never heard him utter an anti-Semitic remark, although I heard him make disparaging remarks about Muslims. He was a loyal follower of Ron Paul, having volunteered for his campaign throughout the early primary states. His views were noxious, as he was an anarcho-capitalist who argued that President Obama, President Bushand probably every other American President since 1898were mass murderers
Article states he is an atheist.
I’ll act shocked if it will help..
Sorry. It’s kinda late here. :-(
Based on past actions, Paul will be happy to condemn the actions, and happy to accept the support. Send money
Unfortunatly there are many crazy people in the world who use thier interpretations of other peoples retoric to justify thier actions. Historical examples abound, you would’nt blame Jesus for the crusades, you would not blame Gandi for the muslim hindu riot, you would not blame John McCain for the crazy woman who harmed herself and then blamed it on McCain’s political opposition in 2008.
People must be held accountable for thier own actions, the only mistake Ron Paul made was not being omnipetant.
Weather you and I agree or disagree with Ron Paul will be made at the ballot box. !Has been decided at the ballot box.
I support an america first policy, but will vote ABO next november, the nation must be saved fron the commie and chief.
To the headline: not a surprise.
Poor Ron Paul, it’s not his fault that David Duke, Storm and the nazi Party of America and more support him.
Poor Ron Paul its not his fault that for more than a decade racist, anti-Semitic letters were written in his name on his behalf.
Poor Ron Paul its not his fault that he gets $$$ from all the blame America firsters.
Poor Ron Paul just because he accepts their money and endorsements doesn’t mean in anyway he agrees with the.
Poor Ron Paul he is just so gosh darn unlucky.
Yes, usualy the types like feminazies are individual criminals who use the “woman group and studies” stuff as a cop out to shift personal blame to other “circumstantial targets” like men. The Paul movement unfortunately is vulnerable to this kind of communistoid penetration due to its conspiracy theory inclinations, and not to mention the recreational drugs obsession angle.
Note also that religious excuses over attacks are not the only thing. Atheists who want to debauche science for their own personal indulgences and selfish pleasure will use science and money to justify anything, including homosexuality in particular.
Ole' Ron Paul really attracts some winners doesn't he?
I'm not kidding when I say near every conspiracy theorist and otherwise loony person I know supports Ron Paul. All of them. We even have a Puerto Rican Muslim convert at my company who is convinced the US military is dropping sterilization pellets (apparently similar to rodent feed) all over Africa to rid the world of black people - and he supports Ron Paul too (presumably to end said pellet dropping practice).
The guy is a nut. The pellet program was discontinued back in the 80s.
Nineteen-year-old Aakash Dalal was arraigned on Monday as co-conspirator in the most dangerous attacks, in which firebombs were thrown into the rabbi's residence at Congregation Beth El in Rutherford.The construction of those synagogues was provocative, in fact, an act of war. /s
Puerto Rican Muslim convert at my company who is convinced .....
Now where oh where or where, would said convert have gotten *those* ideas. There’s a brain teaser for ya ....
A man is known by the company he keeps. Clearly Ron Paul is a lunatic, anti-semitic, racist dope-smoker. :)
Reminds me of the cartoon of a patent attorney’s office where he is aiming the inventor’s weapon gizmo out the window at the street below, and scoffs,
“Death ray my foot! Why, it doesn’t even slow them up.”
