Pittsburgh, PA - Car Driven By 'Messiah' Hits Shul; Police Say Man Spoke About Bin Laden

Pittsburgh, PA - The afternoon service at Poale Zedeck Orthodox synagogue on Tuesday had drawn to a close, and some of the congregants lingered to listen to the rabbi speak in what should have been a tranquil moment.

"We heard what sounded like a bomb," said Marcia Robkin, who rushed to the doors with dozens of other temple-goers, fearing the worst. Maybe the landmark synagogue at Phillips and Shady avenues in the heart of Squirrel Hill had been targeted, they thought. Maybe it was a hate crime.

Outside, they saw a smoke-billowing car halfway up the steps, metal handrails, a lantern, and a concrete wall in ruin, and two men darting up Shady Avenue. So they chased after them.

They were further mystified after they managed to capture the struggling driver.

"He said, 'You're not going to believe this, but I'm the messiah,' " said Michael Cohen, one of several men who tackled Adam Disabato to the ground and held him there until police arrived. "He was in a seemingly religious state of mind, but I'm not quite sure he knew where he crashed into."

Across the street, Al Dubinsky and the synagogue's president, Dean Pollack, held Mr. Disabato's passenger at bay. They pinned his arms behind his back, patted him down in search of weapons, and took off his shoes so he couldn't escape.

"They were pretty shaken up from the crash," Mr. Cohen said. "They must have been going pretty fast."

Clearly, a chariot of fire.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy.
