US Government Assists In Plot To Bomb NY Synagogue

All over the headlines you will see that 4 individuals have been charged with plotting to bomb a synagogue in New York. Here's a link to the article about it in the New York Times.

They were caught planting what they "believed to be bombs" outside the synagogue. Apparently according to the FBI, the bombs were obtained with the "help of an informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigation". In any other situation, the entity which assisted with obtaining these materials would be charged as an accessory.

This is tough. Obviously these men are filled with hatred, and are willing to be violent. According to information and the New York Times, one of the terrorists said his "parents had lived in Afghanistan before his birth, he had told the informant that he was upset about the war in Afghanistan and that he wanted to do 'something to America.'"

So here we have a man whose family and homeland has been threatened. Who wouldn't wish to be violent toward the entity that makes the threat? Then, that entity plants an informant that provides a medium through which the angry man has the ability to act on his emotions.

Is this justice?

These men didn't plant real bombs. The materials were provided by the federal government.

SO they're being arrested because the FBI tricked them into believing they were planting real bombs that were provided by the FBI?

Seems to me these men are being taken advantage of for the sake of a headline.
