An Oak Creek man on Friday pleaded guilty to federal charges and admitted he vandalized a Racine synagogue to support a neo-Nazi hate group.
Yousef O. Barasneh spray-painted swastikas and anti-Semitic words on Beth Israel Sinai Congregation in Racine last September and plotted other acts of vandalism against minority residents with the white supremacist group "The Base," according to a plea agreement.
Barasneh admitted in the agreement that he talked on online message platforms with other members of The Base about "acts of violence against Jewish Americans and non-white Americans, Base military training camps, and ways to make improvised explosive devices."
