Government asks Jewish groups to join in anti-terrorism campaign

For the first time, the federal government is expanding its community-based anti-terrorism campaign to a religious group — the Jewish community, victims of past attacks in the U.S.

“They are a community that has been specifically targeted for ideological” reasons, said John Cohen, a principal deputy counter-terrorism coordinator for the Department of Homeland Security. He referred to two shootings by white supremacists, in 2009 at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., and in 1999 at a Jewish community center in Los Angeles.

The next phase of the department’s ongoing campaign, called “If you see something, say something,” is meant to teach the public how to be smarter about identifying threats and reporting them to law enforcement.

The campaign started in July 2010 with groups and agencies including Amtrak, the Indianapolis 500, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, and the U.S. Tennis Association.

First New York’s Jewish community was asked to participate. Up next: Florida’s Jewish community.
