    WASHINGTON — The Israeli police on Thursday arrested a man believed to be responsible for scores of bomb threats that were phoned in to Jewish community centers across the United States, American officials said. The F.B.I. confirmed in a statement that the bureau had worked with the Israeli national police to arrest the teenager, who, officials said, holds citizenship in both Israel and the United States. “Investigating hate crimes is a top priority for the F.B.I., and we will continue to work to make sure all races and religions feel safe in their communities and in their places of worship,”...

    Juan Thompson, the St. Louis native arrested for making bomb threats against Jewish centers, evidently used to write at left-wing website The Intercept before being fired for fabrication. Here’s Mediaite’s report on his firing a year ago. News website The Intercept issued a mass retraction and correction Tuesday after admitting that one of their writers regularly fabricated sources and impersonated sources with fake Gmail accounts. “An investigation into [Juan Thompson]’s reporting turned up three instances in which quotes were attributed to people who said they had not been interviewed. In other instances, quotes were attributed to individuals we could not...

While a local tale, it is a distressing encapsulation of Israel’s predicament.Israel’s rights and justness are grounded in truth. But today truth isn’t worth as much as it used to be.

    The Palm Beach County Democratic Party on Tuesday let loose its new weapon, something I call the "Jewish Grandmothers Group," designed to stifle free speech. At the Ross Jewish Community Center in Boynton Beach, Mark Alan Siegel, the chairman of the local party, joined Rabbi Barry Silver to square off in a debate with Christian-Zionist Tom Trento and me. The topic: Should Jews vote for Obama or Romney? In what should come as no surprise by now, the informational event was closed down early because of threats of disorder. An early "uh-oh" sign popped up in our heads when, just...

    He was denounced as anti-Muslim by protesters outside, but controversial author Steven Emerson drew applause inside Tucson's Jewish Community Center on Monday night when he called on Muslim leaders to "unambiguously condemn" Islamist terrorist groups. He also drew applause when he criticized Western newspapers for succumbing to intimidation and "appeasing Muslim demands" by not running controversial Muslim cartoons that made headlines this year. Hard-core jihadists are a minority of the world's 1.2 billion Muslims, he said. But he added that minority is disproportionately influential and said genuinely moderate Muslims would do well to better empower themselves by vocally condemning groups...

    BAGHDAD, 13 April 2003 — Iraqi Muslims came to the aid of Baghdad’s tiny Jewish community yesterday, chasing out looters trying to sack its cultural center in the heart of the capital. “At 3:00 a.m., I saw two men, one with a beard, on the roof of the Jewish community house and I cried out to my friend, ‘Hossam, bring the Kalashnikovs!” said Hassam Kassam, 21. Neither Hassan nor Hossam, who is the guard at the center, was armed at the time but the threat worked in scaring off the intruders. Two hours later, the looters returned again and Hassan...
