Hate Crimes Charges Filed

The young man who made bomb threats against hundreds of Jewish community centers and institutions in 2016 was found to be a Jewish Israeli-American. Nonetheless, the Anti-Defamation League continues its absurd, ever-consistent hate-cry: “Make no mistake, these threats were acts of anti-Semitism and deserve to be treated as a hate crime.” Could the ADL’s nonsensical position finally be the straw that breaks this subversive, fear-mongering camel’s back?

A federal indictment has been brought against Michael Kadar, 19, the young Israeli-American man suspected of making hundreds of fake bomb threats and other hoax threats against Jewish community centers (JCCs) and other Jewish institutions across the U.S. last year, it was recently reported. The federal indictment includes hate crimes charges, cyberstalking, and making threats against the Israeli embassy, among other charges.

Kadar, who is Jewish, was arrested in Israel last March in a joint operation involving Israeli law enforcement officials and the FBI. He is currently awaiting trial in the Zionist entity where he also faces a number of other charges, including publishing false information, computer hacking, and money laundering. The recent federal indictment does not indicate whether or not Kadar would be extradited to the U.S. to face trial for his crimes here. Israel rarely allows its citizens to be extradited to face trial in foreign countries, even if they have dual citizenship. Federal grand juries in Florida, Georgia, and the District of Columbia brought the federal indictment against Kadar for making fake threats between January and March 2017, it was reported.

The fake bomb threats allegedly made by Kadar against JCCs, Jewish schools, and other Jewish institutions across the country last year generated major headlines and much controversy. At the time, many Jewish institutions were evacuated and the Jewish community and countless U.S. politicians, including President Donald Trump, railed against the supposed resurgence in anti-Semitism, which turned out to be entirely manufactured by Kadar’s fake bomb threats.

“The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are horrible and are painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil,” Trump stated in late February of last year. Other political leaders made similar statements, hyping the alleged threat of anti-Semitism, bigotry, and racially inspired violence.

The American Jewish Committee published an open letter to Trump shortly after the threats began generating headlines, demanding that the president “condemn what has often been described as ‘the oldest hatred’—anti-Semitism—and [to] unleash the power of government to match deeds with words.”

No bombs were ever found at any of the JCCs and other Jewish institutions toward which Kadar had purportedly made threats, yet that did not stop Jewish groups from demanding more federal funding and protection. Jewish institutions increased their private security services in the wake of the fake bomb threats and used the threats to hysterically hype the alleged threat of anti-Semitism.

David Posner, the director of strategic performance of the JCC Association of North America, stated at the time that his organization was “relieved that all such threats have proven to be hoaxes and that not a single person was harmed,” yet he nevertheless was “concerned about the anti-Semitism behind these threats, and the repetition of threats intended to interfere with day-to-day life.”

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), one of the most subversive organizations operating on American soil today, praised the recent federal indictment brought against Kadar.

“Make no mistake, these threats were acts of anti-Semitism and deserve to be treated as a hate crime,” the ADL’s CEO Jona than Greenblatt stated in a press release following the announcement of the federal indictment. “They targeted Jewish institutions in order to stoke fear and anxiety and put the entire Jewish community on high alert.” Unsurprisingly, Greenblatt, like other Jewish leaders and U.S. politicians commenting on the case, failed to mention that Kadar is himself Jewish and holds dual Israeli-American citizenship.

“We applaud the diligent investigative work of the FBI, the Justice Department, the Department of Homeland Security, and the state and local law enforcement officials who made this investigation a high priority,” Greenblatt continued. “We especially appreciate the fact that these federal charges recognize that these threats constituted crimes—and we welcome the strong statements by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray recognizing the deep impact of hate violence. We again call on Congress to enact legislation to expand federal protections against bomb threats to religious institutions. The House of Representatives approved their version of this measure in December and now the Senate must act without hesitation.”

The ADL recently released a new report documenting what it considers to be anti-Semitic incidents in the United States during 2017, which include the fake threats purportedly made by Kadar. The report details 1,986 supposed anti-Semitic incidents, a 57% increase in such incidents as compared to 2016. The ADL and other Jewish organizations regularly hype the supposed threat of anti-Semitism and “hate” in order to advance political narratives beneficial to the organized Jewish community, which include lobbying for legislation cracking down on “hate speech” and criticism of Jews and other minorities more generally.

As this newspaper has reported on extensively, the vast majority of so-called “hate crimes” are manufactured by the victims themselves in order to advance and perpetuate a victimhood narrative and exaggerate the “threat” of anti-Semitism and racism in American society.

According to reports, it is unclear how many hoax threats Kadar made, but some estimate he called close to 2,000 institutions around the world.

In 2017, approximately 100 Jewish institutions in the U.S. received bomb threats, a fraction of the total number of bomb threats that other institutions in the U.S. face every year. According to the Educator’s School Safety Network (ESSN), a national non-profit school safety organization, that in 2016 1,267 bomb threats were reported by schools around the U.S. Following the recent massacre at a high school in Parkland, Fla., in February, schools across the U.S. have reported dozens of threats that have included bomb hoaxes.

Fighting ‘Hate,’ Killing Free Speech

Anti-Defamation League undercutting free expression by indoctrinating mayors, police

By John Friend

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), an organization openly hostile to the First Amendment that seeks to advance pro-Israel interests and shut down free expression with often baseless charges of “anti-Semitism,” has partnered with the United States Conference of Mayors in the wake of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va. in an effort to combat “hate” and “extremism,” Marxist buzzwords that are applied to patriotic Americans willing to buck the tyrannical system of political correctness plaguing the West. The United States Conference of Mayors is an official, non-partisan organization representing American cities with populations exceeding 30,000. More than 300 mayors from major American cities across the nation have collaborated with the ADL on the project, and have pledged to implement the 10-point Mayors’ Compact to Combat Hate, Extremism, and Bigotry, developed almost entirely by the subversive, anti-American organization.

Some of the 10 key initiatives outlined in the compact include “rejecting extremism, white supremacy, and all forms of bigotry,” as well as prioritizing and promoting “anti-bias” and “anti-hate” programs—which are also developed by the ADL—in America’s public and private schools. Additionally, the compact encourages local residents and community members to report “hate incidents”; seeks to strengthen “hate crime” laws; and promotes training for law enforcement officials across the country to respond to and deal with “hate.”

The compact represents an attempt by the ADL to institutionalize its subversive, anti-free speech agenda, a major and long-running goal of the antiAmerican organization. The Unite the Right rally, which was legally organized by leading members of the alt-right, a burgeoning, loose-knit, right-wing movement that embraces racial identity and populism while rejecting globalism, multiculturalism, and massive non-white immigration to America and the wider Western world, has been used as an excuse to advance a number of blatantly anti-free speech agendas, including the censoring of some alt-right commentators on the Internet.

The rally was legally permitted, yet faced enormous obstacles from local political leaders in Charlottesville. The entirely distorted narrative spun by the political and media establishment portrayed the altright organizers and supporters as hateful, racist bigots who were determined to violently confront and attack the counterprotesters who showed up to peacefully demonstrate against the rally. The fake news media and establishment political and media pundits hysterically condemned everyone in the altright as violent extremists and terrorists, white supremacists, neo-nazis, and even Ku Klux Klansmen. Meanwhile, Antifa and other leftist extremists who engaged in physical confrontations and violence against the alt-right were portrayed as righteous and honorable protesters simply attempting to exercise their First Amendment rights. Needless to say, the concept of “hate” will be defined by the ADL and will, of course, encompass any form of criticism or resistance to its subversive, antiAmerican agenda.

“What happened in Charlottesville . . . reminds us all that violent hate and racism are very much alive in America in 2017,” Tom Cochran, the CEO and executive director of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, said when the compact was announced. “For decades, America’s mayors have taken a strong position in support of civil rights and in opposition to racism and discrimination of all kinds. At this critical time mayors are doing so again through this compact in an effort to combathate, extremism, and bigotry in their cities and in our nation.”

The ADL has played a key role in politicizing and militarizing law enforcement in the United States for decades, and routinely offers training courses for local, state, and federal law enforcement officials and entities across the country. The ADL openly describes itself as “the foremost non-governmental organization in the United States that offers law enforcement training on terrorism, extremism, and hate crimes” and boasts that it has “trained well over 100,000 federal, state, local, and military law enforcement officers.”

Law enforcement officials at all levels of government also regularly travel to Israel to receive training and advice from their Israeli counterparts, particularly in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, which many prominent researchers believe the Zionist state played a central role in carrying out, further militarizing American law enforcement, as is the case in Israel. This often involves U.S. law enforcement working closely with the Israeli military and police, both of which have been accused of carrying out war crimes against Muslims and Christians in the Holy Land.

Interestingly, Anita Gray, a regional director for the ADL in Cleveland, Ohio, admitted in a revealing interview with Cleveland Jewish News shortly after the rally that her organization had been “working on the ground and behind the scenes leading up to, during, and after the rally” in Charlottesville. “We remain in close contact with law enforcement, elected officials, community leaders, and others and continue to provide critical research, resources, and community support,” Ms. Gray went on to explain. “All of our offices have been working around the clock to respond, inform, and take action.”

The insidious agenda of the ADL could not be clearer in the aftermath of the Unite the Right rally, i.e., to stamp out criticism of Israel.
