An 18-year-old Jew named Michael Ron David Kadar has been formally charged with the wave of threats issued to Jewish Community Centers—and which was blamed on “white racists” by the Jewish lobby controlled media—has been formally charged by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).
According to a press release issued by the DOJ,
Kadar, who has dual United States and Israeli citizenship, was charged with “making threatening calls to Jewish Community Centers in Florida, conveying false information to police dispatch regarding harm to private residents in Georgia, and cyberstalking.”
The charges apparently only relate to identified cases in Georgia and Florida, and further charges are expected to be lodged as investigations proceed in other states.
“The investigation into violent threats to Jewish Community Centers, schools and other institutions across this nation continues, including an ongoing investigation into potential hate crime charges,” the DOJ statement said.
According to a federal criminal complaint filed in Orlando, Florida, it is alleged that beginning on or about Jan. 4, 2017, and continuing until March 7, 2017, Kadar made multiple threatening calls involving bomb threats and active shooter threats to numerous Jewish Community Centers throughout Florida.
Although no actual explosives were found, many of the calls resulted in the temporary closure and evacuation or lockdown of the targeted facilities, and required law enforcement and emergency personnel to respond and clear the area.
Further, according to a federal criminal complaint filed in Macon, Georgia, it is alleged that on or about Jan. 3, 2017, Kadar made a phone call to a police department conveying false information about an alleged violent emergency situation concerning multiple individuals at a private residence in Athens, Georgia. Police and emergency personnel responded to the scene, only to learn that there was no emergency.
“Today’s charges into these violent threats to Jewish Community Centers and others represent this Department’s commitment to fighting all forms of violent crime,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
“These threats of violence instilled terror in Jewish and other communities across this country and our investigation into these acts as possible hate crimes continues.”
“This kind of behavior is not a prank, and it isn’t harmless. It’s a federal crime,” said Director James Comey of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. “It scares innocent people, disrupts entire communities, and expends limited law enforcement resources. The FBI thanks our partners for working with us here at home and around the world.”
“This Department will lend its full support to law enforcement officers and communities so we can fight violent crime, including threats like these,” said Acting Associate Attorney General Jesse Panuccio. “These threats terrorized our communities, and we will continue to enforce this nation’s laws.”
“Violent threats intended to instill fear in our religious communities, schools, and homes are an attack on the very fabric of our society and will not be tolerated,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Tom Wheeler of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. “The department will continue to vigorously investigate and prosecute those who engage in such violent acts.”
“Kadar allegedly took extraordinary steps to conceal his identity and location through several technological means, including voice alteration, use of proxy IP addresses, virtual currencies and caller ID spoofing,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Kenneth E. Blanco of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “Thanks to the specialized training and expertise of our investigative team, we were successful in identifying, locating and apprehending the person accused of this despicable campaign of threats.”
“The charges brought today demonstrate our resolve to pursue and prosecute those who seek to sow terror and fear in our community, wherever they may hide,” said Acting U.S. Attorney W. Stephen Muldrow for the Middle District of Florida. “They also reflect the tireless efforts, dedication and cooperation of agents, analysts and prosecutors within the Justice Department, as well as our state, local and international law enforcement partners.”
“People, especially children, deserve to feel safe in their communities,” said U.S. Attorney G. F. Peterman III for the Middle District of Georgia. “The violent threats made against schools, families, and Jewish Community Centers sought to rob our citizens of that right. I’m proud that the Department of Justice and the FBI have fought tirelessly to restore that sense of safety.”
The Jew, whose identity remains under gag order in Israel, was arrested last month in the southern Israeli town of Ashkelon after the FBI arrived and demanded that the Israeli authorities take action—more than three years after Kadar started making his worldwide threats which targeted schools and other public institutions in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, as well.
Kadar also recorded each of the calls himself and kept them in organized files at his home in Ashkelon, along with news articles describing the police responses to the threats, and paid for the online calls using the semi-anonymous currency Bitcoin. A large antenna at his apartment building allowed him to make long-distance, outdoor wireless connections.
The Florida indictment said recordings of the calls stripped of the software-enabled disguise revealed a speech impediment in the caller’s voice that matched his.
Christians Celebrate Easter In Liberated Syria
Christians in Syria were free for the first time in at least four years to celebrate Easter in public without fear of being attacked by U.S., U.K., Saudi, Turkish, ISIS, and other Western-backed “rebels” this weekend.
According to a report issued by the Syrian Arab News Agency, Christian denominations in Syria on Sunday celebrated Easter by holding prayers and services in churches and places of worship.
In the Lady of Dormition Cathedral in Damascus, Melkite Greek Catholic Patriarch of Antioch and All East Gregory III Laham presided upon the Easter celebrations, delivering a sermon emphasizing the meaning of Easter and calling for unity, solidarity and love among Syrians, in addition to condemning the recent terrorist bombing that targeted the people of Kefraya and al-Foua’a.
A similar ceremony was also held at the St. George Cathedral, presided upon by Syriac Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and All East Mar Ignatius Aphram II, who said in his sermon that terrorism and injustice are bound to be defeated by the light of righteousness.
Armenian Orthodox Bishop of Damascus Armash Nalbandian also presided upon a service at the Mar Serkis Church in Damascus, in which he delivered a sermon denouncing all forms of terrorism and aggression targeting Syria, while during the service held at the Evangelical Church of Damascus, its Pastor Rev. Boutros Zaour said that Easter bears a message of rising above evil and injustice, and that Syria has been an example of coexistence, faith, and peace since the dawn of history.
Meanwhile in recently-liberated Aleppo, celebrations were limited to prayers and services at churches in honor of the victims of the bombing that targeted the buses transporting the people of Kefraya and al-Foua’a.

Easter celebrations were held in churches across Syrian provinces, including the Lady of Annunciation Church in Daraa city, Mar Elias Church in Ezra’a, St. George Cathedral in Hasaka, the Archdiocese of Bosra, Horan, and Jabal al-Arab, in Jesus the King Church, and in the Good Shepherd Church in Sweida.
In Lattakia, services and prayers were held in St. Nikolaus Church, St. George Cathedral, and the Virgin Mary Church, and in Hama and Tartous services were held at the Greek Orthodox Archdioceses and in a number of churches, while in Homs prayers were held at Al-Arbaeen Church and other churches.
“Ma’aloula has been a Christian village since there were such things. But it was almost gone,” the report said.
“America’s ‘moderate rebels’ of the Free Syrian Army attacked it with a vengeance alongside Al Qaeda…as they always do,” and massacred many who would not convert to Islam.
“The local men who had formed a militia to protect their homes were able to hold off the terrorists with the help of Hezbollah fighters until they could get almost all of the women and children out via ancient sewer tunnels.
“Then US-supported “moderate” terrorists ransacked the place, looted and vandalized the homes, businesses, churches, and orphanage. They stole the priceless, ancient, unique icons and sold them to Israel, Europe, and Gulf countries.”
After six months, the Syrian armed forces and allies finalized the liberation of Ma’aloula.
“So much is destroyed but they are rebuilding. President Assad made the restoration of Ma’aloula a top priority. The Syrian Army protects the people who have moved back.”
The article’s author ended with this telling commentary:
“It’s hard for me this morning, to write in such a way as to build bridges with Americans who have been lied to incessantly by [their] government, war-profiteering media, and NGOs masking themselves as humanitarian organizations while existing only to further political agendas…because I am filled with rage as I write this.
“After the lies and horrors of Iraq and Libya are so obvious and so exposed now…why oh why do Americans continue their blind, ignorant and often arrogant support for the US war machine?
“Oh, and Happy Easter.”
Syria: Evacuations Continue Despite “Moderate Rebel” Bombing
More than 3,000 Syrian civilians were evacuated to safety in Syrian government-held positions on Sunday, despite a “moderate rebel” bombing on Saturday, carried out by a suicide bomber named as Samer Kharita, a fighter from one of the “moderate rebel” groups backed by the U.S., U.K., Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and other Western governments.
The bombing of the evacuee buses which killed more than 120 people, including at least 68 children, has not received any of the controlled media’s hysterical publicity and condemnation which followed the previous week’s so-called chemical attack in Syria—precisely because this time there is absolutely no doubt that the bombing was carried out by what the Syrian member of parliament for Aleppo, Fares Shehabi, called a “NATO terrorist.”
In another tweet
, Shehabi pointed out that the “NATO liars started the sarin campaign blaming the Syrian gov seconds after the crime, but [we] have not yet heard [from them about] their rebels’ bus massacre!”
Saturday’s blast hit a convoy carrying residents from the northern towns of Fuaa and Kafraya as they waited at a transit point in rebel-held Rashidin, west of Aleppo.
The evacuations were taking place under a deal between Syria’s government and the rebel terrorists that is also seeing residents and “rebels” transported out of Madaya and Zabadani, towns near Damascus which are surrounded by pro-government forces.
The agreement is the latest in a string of evacuation deals, which the government of President Bashar al-Assad says are the best way to end the violence after more than six years of civil war.
A TV interview with one of the bombing survivors revealed that Kharita had lured the evacuee children to the car bomb by offering them potato chips. The witness said that they had been under siege by the “rebels” for more than two years, and the children were therefore eager to get their hands on the chips.
“They tried to gather as many kids as possible around the vehicle,” the eyewitness said.
The “do not care” attitude of the controlled media was best represented by the CNN correspondent, who described the bombing only as a “hiccup.”
Another fact ignored by the controlled media was the reality that the evacuees were being taken to the recently liberated city of Aleppo, which until recently had been held by the “moderate rebels.”
* As usual, the controlled media in the West all relied on something called the “Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.” This “organization” is most often used as a “source” by the media because its name makes it sound authoritative—but it is in fact a single person, one Osama Suleiman, who uses the pseudonym Rami Abdulrahman.
Suleiman is not even in Syria, and has lived in Britain for the past 17 years, and “runs” his “organization” out of his clothing shop in Coventry, England. He has admitted that he left Syria in 2000 because he hated the government, and is therefore the last person who should be quoted as an “authority” on the situation—but he is exactly what the controlled media want: a compliant source of endless anti-Syrian government propaganda.
