Mayors, rabbis arrested in NJ corruption probe


www.reuters.com

NEWARK (Reuters) - Dozens of New Jersey politicians, officials and prominent rabbis were arrested on Thursday in a sweeping federal probe that uncovered political corruption, human organ sales and money laundering from New York to Israel, officials said.

The 10-year investigation, dubbed "Operation Bid Rig," exposed influence-peddling and bribe-taking among a network of public officials and a separate multimillion dollar money-laundering ring that funneled funds through charities operated by local rabbis, said the U.S. Attorney's office in Newark, New Jersey.

Wait...what just happened? Corrupt local politicians got arrested?

This is a great story, and as far as I know the first time corruption in the states has a direct (and proven) link to Israel. Now I would really like to know who in Israel benefited from the US corruption. If there is a link to Israeli politics, then the feces just hit the fan. You could then argue that Israel is anything but an ally.

I wonder if the politicians who got caught are going to try and strike a deal. I am so hoping for them to name some higher ups.

Vital organs are tragically harvested from impoverished countries in Asia and Africa.


The story says nothing about "butchering bodies in Israeli prisons to sell organs."

Case #4863 of antisemitic lying dribble from a usual source around here that seems to get their rocks off inventing and attributing atrocities to the people they love to hate.

Lots of sickness in the world.

Local community leaders, voices of reason... spreading the word of God... and being corrupt in the process. What else is new?


"Rabbis accused of money-laundering were Saul Kassin, chief rabbi of a large Syrian Jewish synagogue in Brooklyn; Eliahu Ben Haim, principal rabbi of a synagogue in Deal; Edmund Nahum, principal rabbi of another synagogue in Deal; and Mordchai Fish, a rabbi at a synagogue in Brooklyn."

It's guys like this that give Israelis a bad name...

And to think this all ties in with a MAYOR and HUMAN KIDNEY SALES...
this is wiiild and crazy stuff.

The human organ sales relates to the part time job of Levy Izhak Rosenbaum...Used organ dealer:



The probe also uncovered Levy Izhak Rosenbaum of Brooklyn, who is accused of conspiring to broker the sale of a human kidney for a transplant. According to the complaint, Rosenbaum said he had been brokering sale of kidneys for 10 years.

"His business was to entice vulnerable people to give up a kidney for $10,000 which he would turn around and sell for $160,000," said Marra.


It's not about Israeli prisoners, it's about vulnerable people in the US.
