Israeli Teen Accused of Running U.S. Bomb Threat Service on Dark Web

An Israeli teen arrested on allegations of phoning in bomb threats to at least 245 American schools and Jewish community centers made some of the threats for money on the dark web.

Michael Kadar, 19, who was arrested in Israel in March, is accused of running a bomb threat business using the dark web marketplace AlphaBay, which was shut down in July, Vice reports

According to the FBI, Kadar charged $30 for each bomb threat and $45 if one of his customers wanted to frame someone for the message. He received $240,000 for his services.

The scheme began in July, stoking fears of rising anti-Semitism and prompting scores of evacuations, the FBI alleges.

Kadar was arrested after he gave away his IP address by failing to use a proxy server.

Kadar has been charged in the U.S. and Israel, but so far he’s not expected to be extradited to America. But he faces up to 10 years in prison on the charges in Israel.

The FBI helped locate and arrest the suspect accused of threatening Jewish organizations across the U.S. and other parts of the world.

The suspect was in Israel.

The Israeli National Police worked with the FBI to help locate the suspect, whose identity has not been revealed.

“Investigating hate crimes is a top priority for the FBI, and we will continue to work to make sure all races and religions feel safe in their communities and in their places of worship,” the FBI said in a statement.

The bureau declined to provide more information at this time.

Since Donald Trump was elected president, reported hate crimes have soared, including threats against Jewish people.

Homeland Security Pledges to Help Investigate Uptick in Hate Crimes

Homeland Security pledged to help investigate a rise in hate-based crimes, from bomb threats to Jewish institutions to shootings of Indian nationals.

Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly said Thursday that the “apparent hate-inspired attacks and harassment against individuals and communities” are “unacceptable.”

DHS’s Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties and the Office of International Engagement will be used in the investigations.

So far this year, about 90 Jewish community centers and schools have received threats, often about bombs.

Homeland Security’s help is long-awaited as civil rights leaders have questioned the Trump administration’s slow response to addressing an uptick in hate crimes.

Full Homeland Security statement:

Over the past few weeks, our country has seen an unacceptable and disturbing rise in the number of apparent hate-inspired attacks and harassment against individuals and communities. I strongly condemn any violent acts to perpetuate fear and intimidation not only against individuals, but entire communities. I pledge the full support of the Department of Homeland Security to assist local, state, and federal investigations into these incidents.

In response to these attacks, I have directed the Department of Homeland Security’s Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties to work with impacted communities. We will heighten our outreach and support to groups affected by these incidents to enhance public safety. The Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties will hold Incident Communication Coordination Team calls with impacted communities. The DHS Office of International Engagement will also continue to work with foreign governments whose nationals have been affected by these violent acts.

The United States has a history of welcoming and accepting individuals regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or national origin. Freedom of religion is a cherished American value, guaranteed by the United States Constitution. DHS is committed to protecting all people’s right to that essential freedom.

The FBI is investigating a flurry of bomb threats reported at Jewish centers in the U.S. and Britain on Monday.

The bomb threats continued to trickle in as the FBI began investigating, the Washington Post reports.

The threats occurred in places such as the Alper Jewish community campus in the Miami-Dade area and a center in Tenafly, N.J.

At least a dozen threats were reported in the U.S. on Monday.

“It’s disturbing,” said Elise Jarvis, who directs the Anti-Defamation League’s security programs.

It’s unclear what prompted the unusual number of bomb threats.

FBI Probes Dozens of Bomb Threats that Shut Down Buildings in 30 Tennessee Counties

The FBI is investigating a rash of telephone bomb threats to buildings in 30 counties in Tennessee, Reuters reports.

Public facilities such as courthouses were shut down Tuesday following the threats.

“There were no devices found,” Dayla Qualls, spokeswoman for the state Department of Safety and Homeland Security, told Reuters.

Among the targets were the FBI and Criminal Justice Center in Memphis, both of which were evacuated.

Officials are trying to determine whether the bomb threats are tied to others around the country.

“We are working with the other divisions of the FBI in the other affected states to make a determination if there is a connection,” and if that is found the FBI will investigate any violations of federal law, said Joel Siskovic, spokesman for the FBI in Memphis.
