(Jerusalem Post) Jews worldwide can rest a little easier today with the arrest and arraignment of a young New Hampshire man who allegedly left three “annoying” anti-Israel voice messages with a local synagogue last summer, resulting in a months-long investigation and manhunt by the local Newbuyport police:
Aidan Kelley, 20, was charged with making annoying telephone calls/electronic messages and released on personal recognizance. Newburyport police had also charged him with criminal harassment but a clerk magistrate at the court ruled there was not enough probable cause to sustain the charge and dropped it.
The first voice message to synagogue leader Alexander Matthews was recorded on July 23 and declares that Palestine will be free and to stop killing Muslims and Christians. Roughly two weeks later, on Aug. 2, a second voice message calls Israel a “terrorist state” and “apartheid free Palestine.”
Both phone calls were immediately reported to police and by Aug. 5, Tierney had applied for a subpoena to examine phone subscriber information from a New Hampshire telephone number. The third message was recorded on Sept. 9 and blames Israel for the killing of Iranian scientists. “Shame on Israel. Israel terrorists, assassin,” the message says, according to Tierney’s report.
By Sept. 21, Tierney identified the subscriber as living in Exeter, New Hampshire, with a secondary contact locally. The records also showed Kelley as the son of the subscriber. Tierney then visited Kelley’s Facebook page and found a photo of Kelley and another person standing in front of a sign that reads “Free Palestine.”
An Aug. 28 Facebook post shows a photo of protesters holding up signs declaring former Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu a war criminal and demanding the end of United States aid to Israel.
Also on Sept. 21, Tierney called Kelley and said he was investigating a series of suspicious telephone calls to Congregation Ahavas Achim and asked if he knew anything about them. Kelley denied knowing anything at first but when Tierney mentioned the Facebook posts and photos, Kelley reversed himself. “I didn’t mean anything by it,” Kelley said, according to Tierney.
Kelley, Tierney added, was unable to justify the calls other than that he “was Catholic and politically passionate about issues related to Israel and Palestine. Mr. Kelley reiterated that he didn’t mean anything by it and it will not happen again.”
A 2019 study conducted and financed by Jewish organizations found a direct correlation between Israeli mistreatment of the Palestinians and antisemitic “attacks” against Jews in the diaspora.
Studies in Sweden have shown a clear, cause-and-effect relationship between the brutalizing of Palestinians in Gaza and “antisemitic” attacks against Jews in Sweden.
Even the Jewish Freemasons in France have warned their fellow Jews to expect “attacks” after Israel bombs Gaza to “protect” itself from Palestinian rock-throwers and other such “terrorists.”
Of course, very few Jews ever speak out against this genocide in Palestine — but they will speak out and cry “Anti-Semitism!” if they are held in any way responsible for the ongoing slaughter.
But being Jewish means never having to say you’re sorry — and anyone who demands accountability or apologies from Jews for any reason whatsoever is, by definition, an “anti-Semite.“
If Jews get their way — and they most certainly are hell-bent on getting it — all criticism of Jews or Israel will become illegal — and every local police department will become full-time “cheka” — enforcers of their draconian “anti-semitism” laws.
