U.S.-Israeli Teen Convicted for Anti-Semitic Bomb Threats
The incidents mostly occurred during the 2016 presidential race, when Donald Trump was sending out anti-Semitic dog whistles.
Reuters reports that an Israeli-American teenager was found guilty in Israel on Thursday of making about 2,000 hoax bomb threats against Jewish and other institutions in the United States and elsewhere. The incidents occurred during Donald Trump's rise to the U.S. presidency in 2016 and 2017. They stoked allegations by some American critics at the time that the Republican contender was encouraging anti-Semitism and other forms of racism. Trump has denied any such wrongdoing. The defendant has been separately indicted for hate crimes in several U.S. states. There he was named as 19-year-old Michael Kadar.
