An Indiana woman, whom cops described as a "terrorist," has been arrested after she allegedly plowed her car into what she thought was a Jewish school.

Ruba Almaghtheh, 34, allegedly backed her vehicle into a building associated with Black Hebrew Israelites in Indianapolis late Friday while several adults and children were inside, Fox 59 reported.

The driver copped to targeting the building, which houses the Israelite School of Universal and Practical Knowledge, because she was allegedly offended by a "Hebrew Israelite" symbol out front, according to a police report.

"Yes. I did it on purpose," Almaghtheh allegedly said in the wake of her arrest.

She repeatedly described the building as the "Israel school," cops said, adding that the driver also made a reference to "her people back in Palestine."

The Israelite School of Universal and Practical Knowledge, however, is a sect of the Black Hebrew Israelites, according to the Anti-Defamation League.

Several adults and children were reportedly inside the building at the time.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis said Safe Indiana, a Jewish community security program, is working with cops to probe the incident.

"Safety and security for our community is of the utmost importance, and we are more secure and prepared than ever before," the federation said in a statement.

"Although a Jewish facility was not targeted, solely due to ironic misidentification, this is yet another reminder to maintain security protocols, remain vigilant of suspicious activity and to (report promptly) to the appropriate authorities."

Police called Almaghtheh a "terorrist" and said she was arrested on a preliminary charge of criminal recklessness. She will make an initial court appearance on Wednesday.

I'll take "Things you do when your utterly stupid" for $500 Alex.

The driver copped to targeting the building, which houses the Israelite School of Universal and Practical Knowledge, because she was allegedly offended by a "Hebrew Israelite" symbol out front, according to a police report.

"Yes. I did it on purpose," Almaghtheh allegedly said in the wake of her arrest.

My money is that there will be no "Hate Crime" modifier added to her charges.

The irony here is the lady plowed into a antisemitic hate group's building. That's funny!

Maybe we need more people like her around these days.

I think we have enough clueless populists at the moment.

She was a leftist anti-Semite.

I know those of you that keeping score do, but I personally don't care which side of the political spectrum hate comes from. To me she's no different from the right wingers chanting, "Jews will not replace us..."

Hmm, I must have missed that, where did this little snappy saying come from?

It's interesting how many people who protest are completely oblivious to the fact that the activity itself often makes them utterly indistinguishable from the people they hate.

a couple dozen guys marched with torches and the left has clung to it for 7 years.  Biden voters have  been holding  Charlottsvilles  pretty much everyday for the last month and they got real, real quiet. 

Biden's spokesman can't even condemn the tearing down of pictures of hostages by Nazis.

Is it your position that right wing hate isn't as bad as left wing hate because one incident was 7 years ago? Did you come to this idea yourself or did you hear it from Steve Miller? Maybe Nick Fuentes said it?

I concur quite vigorously. The person that caused the death of the old man in the recent rally is as guilty as the guy that ran his car into the crowd after Charlotteville too.

The Radical Hebrew Israelites are anti-Semitic, anti-white, anti-LGBTQ, xenophobic and misogynistic sect of groups who believe  that they are the true Israelites of the bible and perpetuate the anti-Semitic belief that “so-called” Jews have stolen their identity and “birthright.”  They are the group that set up the teens and Native Americans at the Lincoln memorial several years ago.

She picked the wrong Israelites.
