New York, NY - The NYPD has increased security at the Israeli consulate, synagogues and other Jewish cultural institutions throughout the city.

The rising tensions between Israel and Iran have prompted the security increase in our area. Heavily armed police and bomb sniffing dogs were posted outside the Israeli consulate on Manhattan’s East Side.  CBS 2′s Hazel Sanchez reported seeing police cars, heavily-armed officers and K-9 units outside the consulate on Friday.

Israeli governmental buildings and Jewish soft targets like synagogues and community centers have been placed on high alert.

“CBS This Morning” Senior Correspondent John Miller said Iran’s threat is very real. Security sources said that on three separate occasions — in 2002, 2003 and 2004 — suspected Iranian intelligence agents were caught in New York City conducting surveillance on landmarks and critical infrastructures looking for potential targets.

not a useless comment at all. #2 is saying that the police don't see anything in CH that is worthy of being watched. And #1, the nazis weren't destroyed. there's plenty of anti-semitism all over

The US should boycott Iran, including stopping flights from Iran to the U.S.

You can rest easy, Anonymous #5.

There are no direct flights from Teheran, Iran to the United States. All flights stop for refuelling, and/or picking up and dropping off passengers etc, at Ankara and Rome, or at Amsterdam, Paris or London.

So your suggestion is less than pointless.
