The Israeli consulate in Boston received an envelope with anthrax on Monday. (Israel Matzav has the video) hat tip Jack
Arutz Sheva reports that Boston is not the only Israeli diplomatic installation that received white powder on Monday, but the others were apparently false alarms.The local CBS outlet quoted Fire Chief Steve Dunbar as saying, “The initial reports were that there was some white powder. They felt the envelope and the particles of grain, so they wisely decided to isolate it into their specialized containment vessel, and that was a smart move on their behalf.”Some of you may recall that in November, Occupy Boston attempted to storm the same Israeli consulate.
A similar scare was reported at a Rhode Island government office and at five other Israeli missions, including New York, Houston, Texas and London. The substances were found to be harmless.
The Anthrax scare appears to be a new epidemic that began last week with a scare in Florida, where the Palm Beach International Airport was partially evacuated, White powder was found on the carpet and later was determined to be harmless.
