Feds Indict US-Israeli Man Responsible For 9% Of All Anti-Semitic Acts In 2017
Federal prosecutors Wednesday charged a U.S.-Israeli dual citizen with hate crime and other offenses in connection with more than a hundred threats he allegedly phoned into Jewish community centers and organizations last year.
Michael Ron David Kadar, 19, was indicted in federal courts in Georgia, Florida and Washington, D.C. after an investigation into numerous threats against the community centers and high-profile Jewish organizations, including the Anti-Defamation League and Israeli embassy in Washington.
Prosecutors in Florida say Kadar, who is Jewish, made multiple calls involving bomb threats and active shooter threats to Jewish Community Centers throughout the state. The Florida indictment also charges Kadar with attempting to obstruct the free exercise of religion at the community centers.
In Washington, Kadar allegedly called in a bomb threat to ADL offices on March 7 and sent a threatening email about a bomb to the Israeli Embassy two days later. The Georgia indictment charges him with making threatening calls, cyberstalking and giving police a false report about a hostage situation at a private home.
This topic can be divisive, but it shouldn’t be. Both sides submit false police reports and stage incidents for many different reasons, including “spreading the word” about their oppression. We should all be against fake “victims,” no matter where they come from. It takes away from the true hate crime stories.
Oftentimes these are reported in the national media, they go viral on social media, and the article is then later corrected, which means there are more people who see the initial allegation than the correction, which makes it seem like there are a lot more hate crimes than there really are. Sometimes the biggest stories that go viral in the media are the ones that turn out to be false. These fake incidents can also sometimes invoke retaliatory, real incidents. Here is a list of some of them, but there are way more out there:
