Israeli police head to US to aid in Boston Marathon bombing investigation

Wed, 17 Apr 2013 16:11 CDT

The investigation into Monday's deadly bombing at the Boston Marathon has officially gone international: law enforcement officials from Israel have been sent to the United States to assist in the probe.

Israel Police Chief Yohanan Danino says he has dispatched officials to Boston, Massachusetts, where they will meet with Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and other authorities, the Times of Israel Reports.

Citing an earlier report published by the newspaper Maariv, Times of Israel writes that Danino has dispatched police officers to participate in discussions that "will center on the Boston Marathon bombings and deepening professional cooperation between the law enforcement agencies of both countries."

The paper reports that Israeli law enforcement planned the trip before the deadly pair of bombings on Monday that has so far claimed three lives, but the discussions will now shift focus in order to see how help from abroad can expand the investigation.

[What? Were they coming to "observe the event"?]

Boston Police, DHS, FBI, Mossad all after this guy

Boston Police, DHS, FBI, Mossad all after this guy - I won't say "kid" not to be accused of... whatever - and city locked down (or was until recently, anyway):

Fudge. He must have a nuclear bomb strapped around his waist. Or tons of chemical stuff. Some kind of WMD anyway.

Makes for great circus to sell by the MSM and the advertisers, though.

Law of the land? Rule of law? 5th Amendment (and others)?

Oh, that... never mind.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.


"To study and not think is a waste. To think and not study is dangerous." -- Confucius

do locals, in charge, have the authority to say "bug off"?

I'm hearing tough talk chatter, "never mind this lock all the residents in their residences, let the professionals handle it...well hell...if this 2nd susper was in Texas he'd be dead already!!!"

So, can't we handle our OWN investigation?

How strange

They're here within a week to help with a tragedy in which 3 people were killed Not including the deaths that happened today), but they were 3 or so weeks in the coming after Hurricane Sandy? Granted, helping with this kind of investigation is much more manageable than dealing with a natural disaster, but this feels like so much political grandstanding. "See, look! We're helping our ALLIES, the US!"

If they are genuinely concerned for our well being, than I welcome them. We could always use more sincerity in this world.

"Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." -- Thomas Paine

I will warn fellow DPers--

quietly read this and make no comments with regards to Israel. Get the information down, store it--

but do not question Israel or any of Israel's policies, people, leaders, bureaus, agencies, etc.

If you do, you will be labelled an anti-Semite or worse--

I think one of the DPers likes to comment on the weakness of the brains of anyone who doesn't praise Israel or anything to do with Israel.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--


Israel has received everything it deserves and it has much more to come before it is over. Israeli police have no business here. Terrorist actions against the US have everything to do with Israel's hegemony in the middle east and on capital hill. Get those fuckers out of our nation.

If you think, for instance, that Israel is just a dandy little country then you have not visited it. You have not seen what they do to their neighbors and you sure as hell have no idea what they have done to this country. They are parasites and they are killing us. Want proof?

READ: The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy by professors at harvard and UC.

You ignorant fucks better find out what kind of people the Israelis are and just how criminal their actions tend to be. If America is to survive, Israel needs to be either annexed by the rightful owners of the land, Palestinians, or wiped out entirely. I hope you people investigate the magnitude of what we are dealing with. READ!!!!

one of my chief concerns now is--

that anyone who criticizes Israel, whatever is/her/their religion (especially Jews and even some Israelis)--

becomes a target for both the pro-Israel 'think' and a target for those who are angry with Israel.

I am more careful with how I use the word collectivism now, but this is a huge concern. Generalizations become more common and discernment gets thrown away when people get emotional.

So, watch the generalization; your language could use some cleaning up--

There are good people in Israel, and there are Jews around the world who question Israel's policies--

Anger doesn't help.

Angry words won't help the cause of truth--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

You are right

I do agree that anger is not going to solve our problems but it is so difficult not to be angry. Anger is a natural emotion which reflects a real or perceived injustice done. And so we really should be very upset that a small nation has a lobby so effective here as to run our foreign policy. We should be angry that we are born into a system that is in ruins because manipulators have decided that it is proper and just. These people, rather than empowering us, have taken what they perceive as a global threat of diminished caring capacity of our planet and put force on little people to eat the consequences. Aside from participating in jobs it is the industry that is responsible for our global degradation. Industry is guided and largely steered by banks. Banks control cash flow worldwide and banks are controlled by Rothschild Jews. They are responsible for the stolen state of Israel. They are responsible for the continuous mess in the middle east and the rest of the world. Their global manipulations have reached far and wide.

Yes if we were to remove the parasitic, manipulative elements from our society and culture the voids would likely be filled in by more tyrants. But therein lies the solution. A free way of life, respecting all others, really does not infringe on others. A tyrannical way of life does. And it also threatens lives and takes them by the millions. I absolutely agree with the statement: "Although I greatly disagree with your opinion I will fight to the death to maintain the right for you to have it." But tyrants have gone way beyond beliefs and opinions. They lie, cheat, steal, murder, rape, torture, pillage and plunder. They do so in the name of free people who are not engaged enough in politics to dis-empower the tyrants. They steal our money at gun-point or threat of homelessness or persecution and use it to cause this global mess. Whats worse is that they just print it when we are not looking. We have to make a serious stand and it has to be soon. Tyrants must know again the world over that the American people will no longer stand for any of it. Constitutional government must be restored and we the free people will have to work things out on our own. We can and should do it. But if we do not soon then the global government will be calling the shots on worldwide military power funded by Americans who failed our chance at re-establishing a just and equitable system for ourselves. We the people have got to stop the criminal lawmakers, bankers, slave-makers and holders from having free reign on us and the world.

I agree. I would sure hope that others..

I would sure hope that other people around the world don't confuse the actions of the U.S. government, with the wishes of the American People. It makes sense to apply that same philosophy to other countries. Don't necessarily confuse the actions of other countries governments with the wishes of their people. I see this as golden rule style "Do unto others as you'd have done unto you" stuff.

No offense really but...

Do you understand how really dangerous and ridiculous your first sentence is? It is true that apparently the American government is not at the behest of its people. But that doesn't diminish the crimes that it continues to perpetrate against America and the rest of the world. That also does not diminish our responsibility to re-establish the American people's control of our own government. Lets put it this way...

According to NWO literature we are on the verge of WWIII. This is because America's military might is at the behest of the the NWO which desires to make trouble for everyone the world over. We the people are the only ones who can stop it. But if we do not then Russia and China are posed to be the saviors of the world by putting down the big American global bully. Hence we become the victims of the world lashing out against a global troublemaker with or without the consent of its people. If we cannot take down the criminals then we deserve the nukes falling on us when it comes to that. And it will. The Rothschild Jews and the other major controlling families have been hard at work for a long time laying the foundations. Please Wise UP!

for Responsibility *

to re-establish the American people's control of our own government.
+1. Many thanks for explaining clearly, & warning about WWIII.
The NWO/UNO is influenced by Zionists, their sinister agenda has gained priority above those of other nations, even the 5 veto 'powers'.

Be objective.

This isn't that big of a deal. Really. Are you worried about Israeli Police infringing on our sovereignty or something? Not going to happen. I'm sure they are here to lend their expertise, and will not have arresting powers.

We have given them a ton of money and weapons, right?

Don't you think it's time we got something back for our investment? I don't think that's too unreasonable.

Let's say I loaned you a crap load of money. You are a plumber by trade, and are the top rated plumber in our area, and the money you got from me helped start your business. My bathroom sink breaks and I need to call a plumber. Who do you think I'm going to call? "Hey buddy, how would you like to work off some of that money you owe me?"

Objectively speaking, Israeli police are probably some of the most skilled in the world when it comes to bombings. They deal with this stuff almost every day. I don't think it's unreasonable for us to get something out of them for a change. We have invested a lot of blood and treasure in them, and it's about time we got something in return.

I do not agree...and neither does reality

Well I suppose the lock down in Boston is one of those "this will never happen here" things some time ago as well wasn't it? Do you know why the Israeli police have to deal with bombings all of the time? It is because they are living on stolen land. They did not just steal the land either they have been brutal about everything they have done. "It is for our survival" they say. But tell me something...

Why is there only one race of people in the entire world that has been officially banned from over one hundred countries throughout its history? Why did those same people take the full force and military power of industrialized nations to force a people off of a land that they occupied for the last four thousand years? Why, after already doing so, do they continue to force more Palestinians off of their own land under threat of death or worse against so called "international" law?

I stay the hell out of debt if I can. I owe no debt now. You should do the same. If you cannot afford it then save up or deal without. Or ask for help from friends, family or neighbors. Therein lies our support group.

skilled in bombing other

skilled in bombing other people and the Twin Towers and WTC 7

That's Mossad.

Like the guys dancing on the parking garage roof top as the towers were coming down and later caught in a white van.

Let's not confuse Israeli Police w/ Mossad, and let's not collectivize all Israeli's as being for "bombing other people and the Twin Towers and WTC 7."

I'm an American. Sometimes my country engages in state sponsored false flag terrorism. Do I like it? No. Does that make all Americans terrorists? No. Does the actions of our CIA drone striking children in Pakistan mean that my local Police department is going to bomb me? No. The worst I will suffer from them is violations of my civil rights, being unlawfully detained, and a good beating. Shot if I do something stupid. They won't bomb me with anything bigger than a flash bang, right after the SWAT team kicks in my door. The only explosives they use are probably the ones used for blowing the hinges off of doors come to think of it.



When is Israel Mossad coming

When is Israel Mossad coming back to Pennsylvania ?


Israel, who suffered years

from terrorists attacks, has a superior knowledge about security, detonations and terrorism. That is why al-Qaeda failed to penetrate Israeli borders. Looks like FBI may ask some questions to learn things.

Hatred of Israel is understandable from those weak-minded who want to push on us their agenda - that Zionists control the world, Mossad did 9/11, Rothschild did "Sandy Hook", Khazars mailed letters with racin, etc. Years of unemployment and fake stress syndrom can damage to any mind already previousely damaged by progressive schools and youtube clips. Immigrants from UK, Ukraine and muslim countries have their cultural inferiority thingies as well...

I dare you to find one false

Of course Mossad was involved in 9/11. One doesn't need to hate Jews to know the truth. This has nothing to do with any hatred toward Jews. I dare you to find one false thing in this documentary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pK6VLFdWJ4I 9/11 and War by Deception, 2013 shows that you are wrong. Go ahead, take the challenge. But prepare to admit you have been wrong.

I think the first anti-Zionists have always been . . .

Jews. Jews who saw what was happening when Zionism took over in the 1800s; Jews who were on the front line.

Unfortunately, many of them were killed by Nazis--

but those who have survived have to fight enemies on both fronts--

they have to fight the Zionists (ideologically, if not physically; most anti-Zionist Jews are very peaceable people)--

and they have to fight the ignorance of people who over-generalize and translate anything with "Israel" in it to "Jews"--

these people need our help and support now more than ever--


These are the people who taught *me* that there are different scriptures for different groups of Jews. These are the people whose ideological/spiritual ancestors stood up to Zionism when it first began and ended up being shouted down.

These are the people that some on DP who are pro-Israel will laugh at and say are not legitimate.

Who decides who is legitimate and who is not?

There are a few real Christians in the world, too. Sadly, not many, but there are some who actually take the words of Jesus Christ at face value and try to live as He admonished.

Jews who believe that being a Jew makes a person less violent, not more violent . . . also exist. They need the support and acceptance of Christians who also take their religion seriously.

LOL! I love your sense of humor

LOL! I love your sense of humor, or is it?!

If Israel's gov't intelligence is so great how come the people and country have so few allies besides the US - DECADES after their creation? Couldn't they deal with all the (enemy) subversive agents by now, and make peace with their neighbors?

Looks to me it's RATHER the opposite.

Yeah, they kick ass! Super Intelligence! Never mind they're still in paranoia mode 24/7, and 365 days/year, begging (or welcoming) Obama's billions $$$ for their "defense".

Reminds me of the USA and their so great "foreign policy" (never mind the compound noun DOES NOT EVEN APPEAR in the Constitution, btw! "LMAO", right?!) who are STILL either AT WAR -OR- OCCUPYING ***HUNDREDS*** of countries all over the place.

Like... being ALREADY in Korea DECADES AGO ... and talking about "issues" about it STILL TODAY!

So much for the "nation building"!

Reminds me of the French and their so great healthcare system worshiped a decade ago by all the useful idiots elsewhere - a system NOW GOING BANKRUPT.

Reminds me of so many other "great performers"...

Are people that much MYTH LOVERS, these days, OR WHAT?!

Yeah, riiiiiiiiight.

Sorry. I have eyes to see.

"To study and not think is a waste. To think and not study is dangerous." -- Confucius


Observe: Socialists control EU, USA and Asia. Muslims are over Billion in numbers. Muslim oil money buys influence. Muslims are also an ideological ally of socialists in fight against capitalism and individual liberty because both socialists and Sharia Law are against capitalism and individual liberty. Israel is the only capitalist country in the region. According to wikipedia, Israel has the largest number of start-up companies after USA (not Swiss, not Germany, not Japan...)

If not for relatively large population of Jews in USA (2.2%), USA might too side with muslims. Today, USA plays both sides. Remember that Jews created atomic bomb for USA. Otherwise, Americans might be sucking on a sweaty Russian or Chinese party member, daily.

As Ludwig von Mises (a Jew) used to say "if you can retain a rather complicated train of thought", you can deduct.

Jews created atomic bomb?

Jews created atomic bomb? huh? you are quite the collectivist!

Are you sure your a Ron Paul Supporter?

I do recall Dr Paul stating back in the '08 presidential debates, Israel created Hamas. Now, if you know and really support Dr Paul, then you would know he never makes a statement unless he knows it's 100% accurate. I guess you would also suggest Muslims created Socialism/Communism, too? I guess Karl Marx aka Mordecai Levi was really a Muslim instead of a Jew? And, he was tutored throughout his childhood-teens by his Mullah uncles, instead of rabbis? My statements about Marx are empirical facts if you believe the Encyclopedia Judaica is accurate. I guess this Fox News report, when they were actually trying to report 'real' news, was all just made up, too? http://youtu.be/8k43_NKYs50
Yes, isn't it ironic that the Jews created a device that could possibly destroy the world some day? And, using the two on Japan killing thousands of innocent people, when they already called for surrender, really helped us from becoming under Russian or Chinese rule? Maybe you should try reading about the Jew, Murray Rothbard, and his belief in nuclear weapons, instead of the Marxist/Trotskyite Jews from where you have learned your perspective? Here, read this http://www.militaryethics.org/Just-War-and-Rothbardian-Liber...

Re Fox report: I'd heard some of what

was in that report. I didn't realize it had been broadcast on tv. It certainly isn't common knowledge. Wonder if there was any follow-up. I don't understand how the U.S. could even allow the outsourcing it does within the telecommunications industry - such that Israel/any foreign country would have records for virtually every telephone call made by Americans. No less with known security breaches and known spying and apparently many Israeli's having been deported (?) as a result of related activities. The info re 9-11 was especially alarming. But, as was reported, for someone in the FBI to complain about the circumstance, it would hamper your career. That, too, is alarming.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
~ John Muir


Mises, Hazlit, Rothbard, Ayn Rand, Reisman, etc were Jews, Marx's parents converted to Christianity. Marx was less of a Jew than Jesus (Jesus was circumcized, studied Torah and ate kosher food, etc.)

Let me understand, are you AGAINST Hamas?

Israel is as socialist as any

Israel is as socialist as any European country. Sure, it has private businesses and start ups, but then, so does Sweden. In 1967 Israel attacked the U.S.S. Liberty in a way that only a complete fool would think was an accident. It has spied on us more than any country other than Russia and China, but we don't subsidize Russia and China the way we do Israel. It's maltreatment of the Palestinians and our government's undying support for that country, no matter what it does, is a major part of the reason for Muslim hatred of America.

Muslim oil buys influence but in America Jewish money buys far more. Jews make up less than 3% of the U.S. population. From Wikipeida (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel_lobby_in_the_United_States):

In 2006, 60% of the Democratic Party’s fundraising and 25% of that for the Republican Party's fundraising came from Jewish-funded Political Action Committees. Democratic presidential candidates depend on Jewish sources for 60% of money from private sources.[48]

Pro-Israel political contributions (which come from Zionist Christians as well as Jews) exceed money from Arab American and Muslim PACs by a factor of about 70 to 1. (So much for the Arab oil money.) That is why each year at the AIPAC conferences a large fraction of our congressmen swear their undying fealty to a foreign country. Behind the scenes AIPAC pushed for George Bush's war with Iraq, and is now quite openly pushing us into a war with Iran. The last organization in the country that would favor Ron Paul's non-interventionist foreign policy would be AIPAC.

A large fraction of the scientists working on the Manhattan Project were indeed Jewish, including many of the most capable scientists. They didn't do it out of some great love for America, but because they hated the Nazis (for understandable reasons, of course) and feared the Nazis would develop a bomb first. It was pure self interest. As it happens, the bomb was used against the Japanese, and thousands of of Japanese women, children, and old men were vaporized in an act than can only objectively be seen as a war crime.

It was Jewish spies with Communist sympathies working within the Manhattan Project that gave the Soviet Union detailed information about the atomic bomb. That is why the Soviet Union was able to develop nuclear weapons so soon after we did.

Lots of confusion is here

1. Israel started as a socialist country, because it was based on (in large part) on immigrants without private property. Israel land is a stone desert with little natural resources and population is small (meaning business market is small for profitable mass production.) 30% of Israeli budget is for defense. Trade is limited because Arabs do not trade and USA does not want Israel to trade with Russia and China. So context must be undestood. Sweden enjoys free military protection paid by USA taxpayers and favorite market within EU. USA aid to Israel is 2% of the Israeli budget, half of that goes back to Pentagon.

2. All who suffered at USS Liberty had settled for monetary compensation from Israel via US courts. US servicemen had lawyers who coached them to testify in such a way as to extract the largest settlement. Israel had provided military live recordings, Pentagon had not (since the ship was a spy ship.) If they have settled, why are you still upset?

3. 70% American Jews support Obama. Only 18% Israelis do. AIPAC works for Pentagon (the latter gets 50% of money from any financial aid.) Jews do not always act as a group. Consider Marx, Krugman, Mises, Rothbard, Ayn Rand. Regarding the funding, all reference comes from a single book. I have no info to support or dispute this. I only know that Jews are 2.2% and presidential contribution is limited, so Jewish money do not dominate presidential elections. Democratic support comes from trade unions, not individual Jews who are small in numbers.

You are quite correct that

You are quite correct that Jews don't all think the same way. There are libertarian, anti-statist Jews, such as Rothbard, Mises, and the late Aaron Russo, and there are Communist Jews. In fact the Bolshevik revolution was a heavily Jewish affair. There are religious Jews and there are atheists who are Jewish by ethnicity only. But here we are talking about Israel, and its lobby here in America, not about Jews generally. We would not be getting into these forever wars in the Middle East were it not for the state of Israel.

It can not logically be true that *all* who suffered from the attack on the U.S.S. Liberty had monetary compensation -- dead people don't get compensation, and many died in that attack. And if the survivors received compensation so what --- did Israel ever explain *why* they attacked the ship (aside from the usual bullshit about it being an accident)? Actually, more disturbing than the attack itself was the U.S. government's response to it -- it did everything possible to cover up the attack, warned the crewmen not to talk about it, and hid it from the press. If nothing else Israel learned that it could do anything at all to the U.S. and get away with it.

AIPAC does not work for the Pentagon. The Pentagon works for AIPAC.

Yes, only 18% of Israelis support Obama. But is that because Obama is a statist here at home? No, they don't care one way or another about that, why would they? The don't support Obama because they don't think he's *enough* of a war monger. Obama isn't terribly keen on getting into a war with Iran, although he may drag us there eventually. Romney, on the other hand, was eager to jump into a war with Iran, as was McCain, four years earlier.

Who was the one Republican candidate not invited to the presidential debate sponsored by the Jewish Republicans? Ron Paul. Why? They said he was, "too extreme". Translation: He opposed all foreign aid, including to Israel, and wasn't going to let Israel declare our wars.

I'm glad to hear that US aid to Israel is only 2% of the Israeli budget. So we can cut it to zero and it won't have much of an impact, right? Just try and get that one past the Israel lobby in congress -- ain't gonna happen.

there are also Jews who do not . . .

accept the existence of Israel.


Pro-Israelis of all political and religious types enjoy taking these people apart.

I say these people need to be supported--

true libertarians will read what Neturei Karta has to say--
