FBI Joins Investigation of Yet Another Act of Vandalism Directed at Jews

The FBI is helping investigate yet another act of vandalism directed at Jewish people.

The latest investigation involves a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia, where an estimated 75 to 100 headstones were toppled Saturday night, CNN reports. 

Police have yet to find a motive for the vandalism at Mount Carmel Cemetery.

“The Philadelphia FBI Field Office, the Civil Rights Division, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania have opened a civil rights investigation into vandalism at the Mount Carmel Cemetery,” the FBI office in Philadelphia said in an email. “The FBI will collect all available facts and evidence.”

In recent weeks, dozens of Jewish community centers across the country have been the targets of bomb threats.

“I’m a child of a Holocaust survivor, so I grew up with stories of destruction of Jewish cemeteries,” said Rebecka Hess, who helped clean up the cemetery. “I always thought we were done with that.”

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.

Rep. Rothman: FBI Must Pool Resources to Prosecute Fourth Hate Crime Against N.J. Jews in One Month

Rep. Steve Rothman is calling on the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s Office to pool its resources and solve a rash of crimes targeting New Jersey synagogues.
 
The fourth hate crime targeting a Jewish synagogue in New Jersey over the past month occurred on Wednesday when Congregation Beth El, in Rutherford, N.J., had an explosive device thrown through the bedroom window of Rabbi Nosson Schuman and his wife, according to a report by the Hudson Reporter. Beth El serves as the Rabbi’s home, a synagogue and a school.

Rothman said the incident is being treated as attempted murder, the paper reported.

“Thank God, the rabbi only suffered burns to one of his hands, but this attack endangered the lives of the rabbi, his wife, his father, and his five children,” Rothman said, according to the paper. “The Federal Bureau of Investigations must investigate this latest attack and the disturbing trend of hate crimes against New Jersey synagogues over the past month.

“This is not Damascus or Baghdad,” he continued. “Residential communities, like those here in New Jersey, should never be attacked. I demand that the FBI and the US Attorney’s Office pool all of their resources … to solve this crime.”

Oye Vay.

Federal authorities in New York  are alleging that Jonathan Braun, 27, ran an international pot smuggling operation and associated with the Hells Angels while living at home with his Orthodox Jewish parents in Staten Island, the New York Daily News reported.

His bond hearing is set for Thursday in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn.

Authorities allege that he smuggled 100,000 kilos of marijuana across the Canadian border.

“He’s the real deal,” a law enforcement source told the Daily News. “He’s huge.”

The Daily News reports that Braun allegedly used “a small army of boatmen and drivers who used vehicles with hidden compartments to transport pot from Canada through the Akwesasne Native American reservations to New York, court papers say.”

Authorities allege that proceeds from street level dealers went to Braun’s Canadian bosses, and that he headed up the organization’s U.S. operation, the Daily News reported.

Fed Prosecutor Says Holocaust Museum Shooter Still Too Ill for Court Appearance

I imagine some white supremacists are proud that 88-year-old James W. von Brunn shot and killed a black man at a Jewish museum. But are they still proud of him now that the FBI has found child pornography on his computer?

WASHINGTON — The 88-year-old white supremacist charged with murder in the killing of a security guard at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum this month was discharged from George Washington University Hospital last week but is too ill to appear in court, federal prosecutors said yesterday.

Since Friday, James W. von Brunn has been treated in a secure ward at United Medical Center, authorities said. At a brief hearing yesterday, federal prosecutor Nicole Waid said doctors indicated that von Brunn might be well enough to attend a court hearing early next week.

U.S. Magistrate Judge John M. Facciola set a hearing for Tuesday morning.
