  54. The Times of Israel17 hours ago - Joshua Ryne Goldberg faces 20 years in jail; same man reported to have posted foul, hoax blog on Times of Israel in April. I arrested a 20-year-old American Jewish man for posing as an Islamic State extremist, calling for terrorist attacks, claiming to be planning attacks in Australia and the United States, and providing information on bomb construction to a second party. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the same man, who it named as Florida resident Joshua Ryne Goldberg, also posed as a respected Australian lawyer in April to maliciously post a racist blog post on The Times of Israel. “US Attorney Lee Bentley III said Goldberg instructed a confidential source how to make a bomb similar to two used in the Boston Marathon bombings two years ago that killed three people and injured more than 260 others. He allegedly instructed someone how to fill the bomb with nails, metal and other items dipped in rat poison. Police base the charge on his communication of five web links to sites that provided instructions that could be used to make explosives as part of a plot to explode a bomb on September 13 at a memorial ceremony in Kansas City, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks.” Goldberg claimed, however, that he did not intend for an attack to take place. He said he wanted to inform police of the plan ahead of time in order to get credit for stopping an attack
