Man Nabbed in Israel for JCC Bomb Threats; Dual US-Israeli Citizen Shielded Computer ID

A 19-year-old man with dual US-Israeli citizenship from Ashkelon, Israel has been arrested on suspicion of being responsible for most of the bomb and other threats to Jewish Community Centers (JCCs) ranging from the U.S., Europe, Australia, and New Zealand during the past six months, the Jerusalem Post website reports today (March 23, 2017).

The suspect, Michael Kaydar, who is Jewish, used intricate methods to shield himself from identification, and law enforcement had to use a variety of its own complex methods to find him.

The suspect's father has also been detained and is being questioned as to whether he knew about the suspect's illegal activities. Police believe the suspect made the calls in retaliation of the Israeli Army refusing to accept him for military service.

Israel intends to indict the suspect in its own courts, while other countries -- including the United States -- will probably seek to extradite and try him for his anti-Semitic crimes.
