Jewish Man Arrested for String of Anti-Semitic Hate Crimes

Hoaxed hate crimes seem to be trendy. Some people do it for financial gain, others for sympathy or attention, either way it's a horrible crime that takes advantage of a very serious issue. This is an insult to all the people of the world who must put up with racism and bigotry every day.

A family business dispute is said to have driven a Jewish man to make anti-Semitic hate calls to elderly women - including his mother - and paint swastikas on their doors.

David Haddad, 56, of Manhattan, New York, was arrested yesterday and charged with aggravated assault as a hate crime.

Haddad allegedly snarled down the phone: 'All Jews should die and go to hell,' when he called his mother, 80, on December 11.

This person obviously has issues and does not represent all the practitioners of Judaism, but this does happen quite a lot. People of all race and religions do this but I hear about these incidents more often than other groups.

This reminds me of an incident from last year which is now under scrutiny as a possible insurance scam. I will post the thread that another member created about this incident. Regrettably the article has been taken down but the article did exist since I read it when this news came out, so the content in that thread is accurate.

Anti-Semitic Vandalism is Likely an Insurance Scam and Not Hate a Crime

As many members including myself have said in the past, these hoaxed hate crimes only create a "boy who cried wolf" scenario. This "trick" some people are using needs to stop.

Yes, it does seem very familiar.

Here is another example:

A Queens lawyer has been suspended for six months for falsely accusing a New Jersey state trooper of using anti-Semitic slurs against him, according to a ruling released yesterday.

Attorney Elliott Dear said he made up the outrageous allegations in hopes of getting out of a speeding ticket.

Court papers say the unidentified trooper pulled over Dear, an orthodox Jew, for going 84 in a 55-mph zone while driving with his wife in 2007.

Six days after getting the ticket, Dear sent a letter to the traffic court saying, “This ticket shall be dismissed immediately” since he wasn’t speeding and “the officer called me a ‘Jew kike’ — and this prejudice obviously was the cause for the ticket,” the papers say.

The letter was forwarded to Internal Affairs, which contacted Dear, who repeated that he had been the victim of an ethnic slur.

Unfortunately for Dear — and luckily for the trooper — the traffic stop had been videotaped on the officer’s car camera, and the trooper was wearing a recording device.

It must be really embarrassing to get caught doing something like this.

The whole Jewish self-hate thing is a hugh psychological dilemma.

There's lots of info and books on the subject.

There is a not unusual, but extremely dangerous and harmful psychological (and some suspect, genetic) disorder among some members of the Jewish faith, known as Self-Hating Syndrome. Adam Levick at CifWatch has written a comprehensive piece looking into this phenomenon; the nature and causes of this disorder.

The Psycho-Analysis Of Self-Hating Jews (opinion piece)


Self-hating Jew (wiki)

Self-hating Jew is a term used to allege that a Jewish person holds antisemitic beliefs or engages in antisemitic actions. The concept gained widespread currency after Theodor Lessing's 1930 book Der Jüdische Selbsthass ("Jewish Self-hatred"); the term became "something of a key term of opprobrium in and beyond Cold War-era debates about Zionism".[1] Similar accusations of being uncomfortable with one's Jewishness were already being made by groups of Jews against each other before Zionism existed as a movement.[1].....

....The origins of the concept of Jewish self-hatred lie in the mid-nineteenth century feuding between German Orthodox Jews of the Wrocław seminary and Reform Jews.[5] Each side accused the other of betraying Jewish identity,[1] the Orthodox Jews accusing the Reform Jews of identifying more closely with German Protestantism and German nationalism than with Judaism.[5]....

... Kenneth Levin, a Harvard psychiatrist, says that Jewish self-hatred has two causes: Stockholm syndrome, where "population segments under chronic siege commonly embrace the indictments of their besiegers however bigoted and outrageous", as well as "the psychodynamics of abused children, who almost invariably blame themselves for their predicament, ascribe it to their being "bad," and nurture fantasies that by becoming "good" they can mollify their abusers and end their torment."[10]

Some may be afflicted with mental illness.

And of course, some may be using it as a tool or an excuse.

Very strange just the same IMO.
