The man accused of plotting a shooting attack at a Milwaukee Masonic center in Milwaukee in the name of Islam claimed the fraternal organization is “playing the world like a game,” according to federal authorities reached by ABC News.

A member of the center dismissed those claims, saying it isn’t at “the root of some of the world’s problems.”

“We can hardly plan a pancake breakfast,” said Gavin DeGrave, who is a secretary for the Valley of Milwaukee, which includes four Masonic chapters.

Samy Mohamed Hamzeh, 23 was recently charged with possessing a machine gun and improperly firearms as part of an alleged plot to shoot hundreds of people at the Masonic temple.

Hamzeh insisted the charges were “not true” during a court appearance on Tuesday.

Hamzeh told informants, “They are all Masonic; they are playing with the world like a game, man, and … we don’t know what’s going on, these are the ones who are fighting, these are the ones that need to be killed.” He said later, “these are the ones who are making living for us like hell.”
