Anti-Defamation League's Manhattan headquarters targeted by bomb threat

The Anti-Defamation League's national headquarters in NY on Wednesday was hit with an anonymous bomb threat.

Although the bomb threat against the ADL was determined to have been "not credible", the organization is "taking it very seriously." .

Cuomo has ordered the New York State Police to coordinate with federal and local law enforcement municipalities to investigate the disturbing trend.

"This is not the first time that ADL has been targeted, and it will not deter us in our efforts to combat anti-Semitism and hate against people of all races and religions", Greenblatt said.

"We are treating these incidents for what they are - as crimes - and we will not allow them to go unpunished", he said.

"Make no mistake, we will find these perpetrators and hold them fully accountable for their actions", Cuomo added.
