Two upstate New York men, one who prosecutors say is a member of the Ku Klux Klan, are accused of conspiring to develop a portable X-ray machine capable of emitting lethal doses of radiation that they intended to use against Muslims and “enemies of Israel.”

Eric Feight, 54, and Glendon Crawford, 49, were arrested in the FBI sting operation.

Prosecutors said the two men wanted the device to be used on unwitting victims who were anti-Israel, and that they had scouted potential targets. The men allegedly said they wanted to cause harm to people who would not realize they had been targeted until days after exposure.

Crawford allegedly sought financing from the Ku Klux Klan in North Carolina, and approached two Jewish organizations saying he wanted help targeting Muslims. The two Jewish groups both called the FBI and the investigation began.
