Star of DavidA U.S.-born Israeli author and terrorism expert says a controversial group known as the Black Hebrew Israelites are, in fact, no friends of Israel.

Authorities in Jersey City, New Jersey have reviewed the city's closed-circuit camera system and concluded that the now-dead shooting suspects deliberately targeted a Jewish market.

The pair, a man and a woman, reportedly killed a police detective at a city cemetery then drove to the store, where they killed three people before police ultimately killed them.

Investigators say their van was filled with anti-Semitic and anti-police writings, and one of the attackers appears to have had links to the Black Hebrew Israelite movement.

Rubin, DavidDavid Rubin says the group claims to be the “real” Israelites and hence claims the Jews are not.

The religious sect is well known in large cities, where group members conduct their street preaching to passersby on city sidewalks.

“They're not friends of Israel,” Rubin says. “They're not lovers of Israel. They're not allies of Israel.”

The cult-like group is also not known for targeting and kill Jews, either, but Rubin says once you combine the group’s religious beliefs with mental instability, you get a tragic shooting.
