Federal authorities have arrested a man in Georgia who is accused of plotting attacks on the White House and other landmarks and buildings in Washington, D.C., according to media reports.

Hasher Jallal Taheb, of Cumming, Ga., appeared Wednesday in court in downtown Atlanta in a case brought by the FBI, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The newspaper reported that authorities believe Taheb was acting alone and that no other threats are imminent.

Taheb had been under FBI investigation after authorities in Georgia reported concerns that he had been radicalized, ABC News reported, citing a criminal complaint filed Wednesday.

Taheb was arrested after he accepted weapons and explosives from FBI informants in exchange for his car, according to ABC News.

In addition to plotting an attack on the White House, Taheb allegedly told informants that he wanted to attack the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial and a synagogue in Washington, according to ABC News.

Funny how we tend to know when these guys have been radicalized, and when they snap - but you don’t see us blowing the !#@$ out of wherever they got radicalized.

Found on Twitter (so take it with a few grains of salt):"I was in federal court where the man, Hasher Jallal Taheb just appeared in Atlanta. Thin build, long beard, shaggy black hair. Led away by US marshals"

And Islam had nothing to do with it.

Did Farrakhan weigh in on this?

One just never knows when a muslim will suddenly start following the example and instructions of their prophet.

The more devout the muslim, the more dangerous they are.
