Well Binyamin Klugger announces the police had dropped charges of ‘price tag’ activity due to lack of evidence.
Hold on, isn’t it naughty to screenshot someone’s Facebook when they have been deemed innocent of charges by the police?? Well – if you are new to this blog, here is some activities Binyamin Klugger likes to (often doing ‘anti-missionary’ work on Shabbat too) spy on Messianic Jews and Christians worshiping in their own congregations for a good number of years by pretending to be interested in their religion and making notes on stopping visiting Christians from receiving Visa papers, and so Messianic Jews get fired from their jobs, evicted by their landlords or denied from aliyah. He also pretends to leave his movement to throw critics off the scent.
Maybe the police didn’t see the weird Facebook profile pictures from last year which looked like a confession? Several times Binyamin’s friends and colleagues say the handcuff thing is part of a prank he did for his kids for Purim. Its a bit too similar to what convicted terrorist Jack Teitel who says associated with Yad L’Achim did from our point of view.
With Jack Teitel likely to get a life sentence for murder of two Arabs, attempted murder on a Messianic Jewish family in Ariel and a college professor, Klugger probably isn’t dangerous in terms of committing serious assault, but he has manipulated his former job working for the Israel government’s Chinese embassy to help Yad L’Achim promote themselves as “cult consultants” to China, a communist country which persecutes Christians and other groups, although possibly one of the few countries where Jews have not been persecuted as Chinese Jews are an extreme rarity amongst the 1.3Bn people there. We think he is a king pin in terms of stirring up trouble, building panic and fear into the regular Orthodox Jewish community, with Yad L’Achim’s familiar style of hysteria.
We hope soon the law will close on Yad L’Achim, and this extremist group will be confined to history. Jewish people in Israel and elsewhere need to realize this group is not a group that helps Jewish people become more observant, but wants to get them into a growing offshoot of Orthodox Judaism worshiping the false Chabad Messiah Rebbe Schneerson.
