FAKE HATE: Jewish Teenager In Israel Arrested For Jewish Community Center Bomb Threats in U.S.

There should be very harsh penalties for stuff like this. The world is messed up enough as it is without hate hoaxes being carried out by anyone for any reason.

The New York Daily News reports:

Jewish teenager with American and Israeli citizenship arrested for JCC bomb threats in America, other countries

A teenager with dual American and Israeli citizenship was arrested Thursday as the main suspect in a wave of bomb threats against Jewish community centers in the United States.

The stunning arrest of the Jewish teen — whom authorities did not identify by name — came after an international probe spearheaded by the FBI investigated the more than 100 calls made during the past two months.

Jewish groups celebrated the arrest in the threats, which raised concerns of a rising wave of anti-Semitism.

Israeli police called the teen a hacker — but said his motives remain unclear.

“He’s the guy who was behind the JCC threats,” Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said, referring to the scores of anonymous calls phoned into Jewish community centers.
