B’Man’s Revolt – by Tom Mysiewicz
Criticize Israel—cause distress to a Jew anywhere—and wind up in an Israeli prison…or executed?
“To all the Jews in the United States, I want to convey an unequivocal message. We are very sorry, from the bottom of our hearts….We are good Jews, we do not hate you. There was no hatred here…He was motivated solely by the disease.”i Quote attributed to father of Michael Kadar.
“Special protection is granted to the life, health, freedom and property of a Jew, because he is a Jew; and that this is without any other connection to the State of Israel.” Sec. 13 (b)(2) of the Israeli Penal Code (1994)
Max Boot and other Jewish neoconservatives have long argued that mere criticism of Israel, or anything Jewish, is anti-Semitism. Even the goyish George W. Bush gave his blessing to this theory at the May 18th, 2004 meeting of AIPAC. And now, it appears the Trump Justice Dept. is taking up where Bush left off and allowing the trial of a U.S. “hate” criminal in Israel—an accused Jewish provocateur said to have made hundreds (perhaps 2000) bomb and other threats to U.S. synagogues, legislators, organizations and individuals in 2016-17.i
On February 28th, 2018 the U.S. Department of Justice announced the indictment for hate crimes of Michael Ron David Kadar (19) a dual-loyalist U.S.-Israeli citizen. The indictment followed a joint FBI-Israeli National Police investigation, not long after Kadar’s loosened leg shackles allowed him to briefly escape custody following an Israeli court hearing. He almost got away.
“The indictment…is part of a broader nationwide fight against hate, terror, and threats in all of their forms,” explained Jessie K. Liu, U.S. Attorney for D.C. While not stated in the indictment, it’s my belief Kadar was betrayed by his large Bitcoin (BTC) wallet. Bitcoin transactions are easily traceable by national and international intelligence and police agencies despite the coin being resistant to tampering. (This may or may not be news to people like Richard Spencer, a reputed BTC millionaire who touted BTC as the cryptocoin of the Alt Right.)ii
Kadar is currently charged in three U.S. jurisdictions: Florida, Georgia and Washington, D.C. However only the indictment from the Middle District of Florida charges Kadar with hate crimes as a result of threatening calls to Jewish Community Centers in the state beginning on or about Jan. 4th, 2017, and continuing until Feb. 27th, 2017. The Feds allege Kadar made multiple calls involving bomb threats and active shooter threats. This Florida indictment charges Kadar with attempting to obstruct the free exercise of religion at the Jewish Community Centers when he made the bomb threats and active shooter threats.iii
The threats now attributed to Kadar were first blamed on so-called Neo-Nazis and white supremacists supposedly fired up by the victory of “Pepe” and Trump. These false-flag threats inspired new calls for expanded hate-crime legislation and censorship. While I do not generally subscribe to the views of Dennis Prager, he does make the slightly overstated (but generally valid) point that 90% of the post-election bomb threats to synagogues and Jewish organizations may have been from Kadar and the remaining 10% of these threats and attacks–blamed on whites–were by a disgruntled black journalist.iv
As yet, no apology has been made to the wrongly-accused white community. In fact, the ADL even doubled down on the hate-crime meme after the revelation the false-flag terrorist was Jewish—possibly taking a gamble that Americans are truly too stupid to notice. In a press release, ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said “…these threats were acts of anti-Semitism and deserve to be treated as a hate crime…They targeted Jewish institutions in order to stoke fear and anxiety, and put the entire Jewish community on high alert.”
It is claimed this alleged paid Jewish provocateur and owner of a multimillion-shekel Bitcoin (BTC) walletv–Kadar–is a dual national with Israeli citizenship, allowing his trial in Israel for offenses within U.S. jurisdiction. Would that logic hold for a Russian accused of poisoning a double agent in the U.K.? Would Russia have a right to try such an individual by nature of his dual Russian-UK citizenship?
In any case, while Kadar may be guilty of many of the charged crimes, he is clearly not guilty of the hate crimes—which require proof he intended harm to the Jewish organizations because they were Jewish. Nor did his claimed autism and brain tumors stop him from accumulating substantial wealth in excess of $500,000 in the course of his alleged hate crimes. A quote attributed to Kadar’s father makes my point: “To all the Jews in the United States, I want to convey an unequivocal message. We are very sorry, from the bottom of our hearts….We are good Jews, we do not hate you. There was no hatred here…He was motivated solely by the disease.”vi
Kadar’s mother was quoted in the same source as stating: “When someone has a brain tumor, in the middle of their brain, there is no reason, there is no logic, there is a dysfunction.” This view echoes that of Kadar’s Israeli lawyer, Shira Nir, who apparently seeks to get her client medical treatment in Israel rather than jail time.vii
No disrespect intended but I disagree with his father (who reportedly also has brain tumors yet works in the Israeliadvanced-electronics sector) and mother: Kadar was not motivated by insanity but by money. He may have hated ordinary Americans but he certainly did not hate American Jews. He reportedly even had a price schedule for bomb threats and other services, including framing up innocent individuals as the perpetrators.viii He was reportedly paid quite well for providing these services, hence my classification of him, if convicted, as a provocateur for hire.
Remember that Jewish organizations in the U.S. and overseas directly benefittedix in terms of increased funding resultingfrom Kadar’s alleged false-flag threats—they had been facing large Federal budget cuts to their security funding. In spite of this (or perhaps because of it?) organizations like the ADL curiously continue to insist he is a “hate criminal” and evendemand Kadar’s extradition to the U.S. to face trial! It is virtually certain Israel will not do this as I believe their real goal isto try him for these crimes in Israel. And it is unlikely that the ADL would call for extradition—unless it was impossible—since the Jewish religion enjoins Jews from delivering fellow Jews to non-Jewish justice.x It might also be uncomfortablefor some to have discovery in a U.S. court case that might connect the perfectly-timed rash of vandalism of Jewish cemetaries with Kadar’s alleged campaign of audio terror.
In response to the Justice Dept. hate charges, JCC (Jewish Community Center) Association of North America President and CEO Doron Krakow echoed the views of the ADL: “JCC …welcomes the announcement by the Department of Justice that hate crime charges have been filed against the individual responsible for the wave of threats made against our community centers last year.”
Case closed? An important question remains: with easy cases on a variety of ordinary criminal offenses, and knowing Kadar was Jewish and Israeli, why did the Trump Justice Dept. commence proceedings to begin prosecuting Kadar for U.S. hate crimes?
Some speculate this is a Trump “white hat” crackdown on false-flag Jewish terrorism. I disagree. The indictments were pursued with full knowledge that Israel will not extradite him to the U.S., even if he is convicted in absentia here. And why are Jewish organizations so supportive of prosecuting a fellow Jew instead of simply covering for the perpetrator as is commonly done in cases where the provocateur is careless enough to be caught? Almost always in such cases pleas are made for compassion and therapy for the poor guilty party. Not this time.
My alternative view is that someone is trying to set a precedent. Kadar didn’t take any physical action against U.S. Jews but only made threats. He’s a U.S. citizen who technically committed crimes in the U.S. and yet may be tried in Israel. Whichshould interest non-MSM bloggers considered “enemies” by Israel and Jewry. A harsh new law, proposed by Israeli Communications Minister Ayoub Kara, could even see reporters and journalists who criticize the Israeli government over their treatment of Palestinians, for instance, face the ultimate penalty: execution.xi
In 2014 Benjamin Netanyahu’s pushed through an official redefinition of the State of Israel—as the national home of the Jewish people worldwide—asserting the right of Israel to try any non-Jew it alleged had committed an offense (such as a so-called hate crime) against any Jew anywhere in the world.xii Ten years before that—in June 2004–I demonstrated this was already implied in Israeli law in my article “Bush & Annan Statements: New Threat To National Sovereignity.”xiii I reportedthen that Sec. 7(a) of Basic Israeli Law defined Israel legally as “the state of the Jewish people worldwide.”
Israel is the only country in the world without a constitution or national boundaries making it a natural candidate for this type of despotism. Have you ever wondered about why there have been such hysterical efforts to implement ever more restrictive forms of censorship and hate-crime legislation in the West? And why the “crimes” used to justify such legislation are many times found to be the work of provocateurs (who, like Kadar, are often termed “insane” to explain their crimes.)
In a nutshell, thanks to the myriad of “hate crime” laws passed in Europe, Australia, Canada and the U.S.—and Sec. 13 (b)(2) of the Israeli Penal Code, which was ratified in 1994—the proposed official redefinition of Israel’s status paves the way for the extradition and trial of critics of Israel in Israel. By Israeli Sec. 13 definition, criticism of Israel, Zionists or any Jew anywhere in the world can be criminal if a Jew anywhere in the world claims such statements caused, say, emotional distress or mental problems. This law claims extra-national jurisdiction of Israeli courts over offenses committed against Jews anywhere. Sec. 13(b)(2) is straightforward: “Special protection is granted to the life, health, freedom and property of a Jew, BECAUSE he is a Jew; and that this is without any other connection to the State of Israel.”
The Kadar bomb-threat case, which may set a precedent regarding future trials of foreign nationals in Israel, could not come a moment too soon for Netanyahu, who is himself facing prosecution for corruption. Nazi-era alleged criminals are becoming increasingly scarce for show trials—such as that of elderly auto worker John Demjanjuk, who was hounded to his death.xiv Without them, Israel may have difficulty finding the national unity necessary for the realization of Eretz (Greater) Israel—a planned megastate that is to include a large part of the Mid East. Then Netanyahu might have to start sending out resumes.
To date, there is one thing that has stopped such judicial kidnapping: the lack of “dual criminality” providing for diversity jurisdiction. In simple English, Israeli courts can’t extradite critics from other countries unless Israeli-equivalent statutes arefirst placed on the books of those countries criminalizing the actions. Thus, if a “hate crime” statute criminalizes otherwise noncriminal free speech on the basis that it causes “distress” to Jews, or leads to unrelated parties (such as provocateurs) committing a criminal act against a Jew, it can then open the door of extradition to Israel.
While the deck is stacked against defendants in U.S. courts, the system of Israeli jurisprudence is light years beyond that. The accused is guilty until proven innocent and much of the law is based on old British law as it existed in the Palestinian Mandate before 1948. Jewish religious teachings do not recognize the testimony of non-Jews as having any legal merit. Torture is frequently employed in Israeli prisons. Prisoners can spend several years waiting for trial. The defenders appointed for non-Jewish prisoners are often incompetent, intimidated or “suicidal.” Convictions can result in the death penalty for non-Jews–something anti-death-penalty advocates in the West don’t seem at all troubled by. And, even if acquitted by miracle in some higher Israeli appeals court, the defendant can be threatened and have the remainder of his life ruined by vindictiveness, as in the case of Demjanjuk. There is no protection against double jeopardy in Israel!
And, say you were someday railroaded into an Israeli court, would your unjust treatment get any media coverage? Well, not likely. Foreign reporters in Israel are virtually all Jewish—a clear conflict of interest—and their stories all must passuniversal Israeli military censorship. (Strange that there are rarely, if ever, disclaimers about such censorship in news dispatches from Israel, a country claimed to be “the only democracy in the Mid East.”)xv
Knowing their probable fate, it’s doubtful selected Americans would be cooperative. It would be much easier to pull off such “extraordinary renditions” if they were fully disarmed. Events such as Las Vegas and Parkland seem intended to push us in that direction. And the “March for Our Lives” movement that has attempted to use Parkland to overturn the 2nd Amendment without the “unpleasant” amendment procedure has now cloaked itself in secrecy with formation of a 501(c)(4) nonprofit advocacy organization that protects the names of donors. By the children and for the children? I’ve written extensively on these events and parallels with disarmament in Australia and the UK.xvi
iii In addition, an indictment from D.C. charged Kadar with threatening the Israeli Embassy and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL.) A third indictment charged Kadar with cyberstalking and conveying false information to police dispatch regarding harm to private residents in Georgia. An investigation into numerous threats made to individuals and organizations throughout the United States in 2016 and early 2017 led to Kadar being charged initially in criminal complaints on April 21, 2017 in Florida and Georgia following his arrest in Israel. Kadar remains in custody in Israel. The hate crime charges each carry a maximum penalty of 20 years imprisonment, the bomb threats charges each carry a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment, and the interstate threats charge, the hoax charge, and the cyberstalking charge each carry a maximum penalty of five years imprisonment. If convicted, Kadar could also be subject to court ordered restitution.

viiiAuthorities allege that Kadar offered to sell threats-to-institutions: A single school could get an emailed bomb threat for $30; a school threat that also tried to frame someone else for the crime would cost $45; and multiple schools or a district could be threatened for $60 (with an increase to $90 if, again, someone else was framed for the online transmission). Further, the FBI alleges that Kadar was a vendor on AlphaBay, an online darknet marketplace that has since been shut down. There, Kadar sometimes operated under the username Darknet_Legend, the FBI says. http://www.informationliberation.com/?id=57177
ixIn March 2017, Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., demanded more funding for Jewish security on the basis of the alleged threats: “At a time where perpetrators are terrorizing the Jewish community across the country, even here in New York, it makes no sense to slash FEMA’s Nonprofit Security Grant Program; we should be putting more money in terrorism prevention for at-risk non-profits, not less.” Next came a bipartisan letter in April 2017 by House members (followed by a similar one in the Senate) called for increased funding for a program that funds security for Jewish sites. The letter, spearheaded by Reps. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J., and Dan Donovan, R-N.Y., and signed by 112 lawmakers, called for more than doubling funding for FEMA’s Nonprofit Security Grant Program, to $50-million a year from $20-million on the basis of bomb threats and anti-Semitic acts committed against Jewish community centers, schools, museums and synagogues. https://www.jta.org/2017/04/04/news-opinion/politics/house-lawmakers-urge-increased-security-funding-for-jewish-institutions
xAccording to the Alliance for Authentic Judaism, Jews may not sue fellow Jews in Gentile courts, or even call the police on another Jew. The Alliance cites a number of authoritative sources, including the Shulchan Aruch, the compilation of Jewish law written by sixteenth century rabbinic scholar Joseph Caro: “No Jew, even if he is a rabbi or leader, is allowed to permit other Jews to go to non-Jewish court before summoning the other party to Beis Din…A Jew or Jewess who says that they will take a fellow Jew to the non-Jewish courts, and they were warned of their sin and didn’t listen, mitzva laha’rog otam, and whoever acts first is worthy, as is the case of a rodeif (one who chasing a person to kill him).

xivDemjanjuk’s Israeli attorney, on the eve of a great victory in the Israeli Supreme Court, somehow threw himself off a high building in Tel Aviv. Israeli hard liners told Demjanjuk that, even though he was acquitted and not Ivan the Terrible they would “get him.” And they did, dragging the near-dead octogenarian into a puppet German court and leaving him to die in a German prison. The U.S. Congressman who’d gone to bat for Demjanjuk after becoming convinced of his innocence, James Trafficant, was railroaded for “racketeering” into a U.S. Federal prison and, relatively soon after his release, died in a suspicious tractor accident on his farm.
