Jewish man arrested over bomb threats

The Jew-haters were right, and not for the first time: A Jewish man has been identified as the source of a series of bomb threat directed at Jewish Community Centers. From Good Morning America:

A 19-year-old Jewish man who is an Israeli-American dual citizen was arrested early this morning in Israel in connection with a series of bomb threats made against Jewish community centers and Jewish schools in the United States and other countries, police and sources told ABC News.

The suspect’s father has also been arrested for the same charges, an Israeli government official said.

Police believe the man made fake bomb threats in New Zealand and Australia and against scores of Jewish institutions across the U.S.

He also allegedly called in fake bomb threats to two Delta flights at New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport in 2015, according to Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.

It’s with great embarrassment and sadness that I acknowledge this. But also out of a sense of duty. Jews must come to terms with the bad apples in our midst. The suspect’s attorney claim that:

“This is a young man without a criminal record who suffers from serious medical problems from a young age. There is a concern that his medical condition affects his cognitive functions. In light of this, we asked the court to order the young man to undergo a medical examination. The court accepted our arguments and ordered the police to examine the young man’s medical condition.”

Par for the course, I suppose. Maybe he is mentally unstable, but this doesn’t excuse us from examining his motivations; even crazy people have reasons for doing what they do. Whatever his motivation, it couldn’t be wholesome.

If it were up to me, I’d strip him of his Jewishness and turn him into a goy.

    Yeah, that strikes me as the proper attitude at least. The Torah talks about in what cases an Israelite is to be cut off from his people. I don’t remember offhand if anything analogous to this case is mentioned, but I sure hope so.

    Life is full of tricky balancing acts. But the balancing act between “disavow ingroup members who bring shame to the group”, “be proud of your identity”, and “don’t hate someone just for going off the reservation” is fortunately most often not that tricky.

  2. so basically an uncle tom no real scotsman call me cynical but that’s kind of convenient.

      How so? I did state that we should look at his motivation. By this I meant that he was probably motivated by ideas found among Jewish people – such as a need for victimhood, a disdain for non-Jews or a feeling that it’s okay to deceive in such a way.
