The JDL Online Harassment Scam
07 May 2004
As the movement against the apartheidist state of Israel has grown, the JDL has shifted in its selection of targets. At an increasing pace, the new targets of the JDL are American dissidents that speak out against Israeli crimes. Many of the more vociferous of these critics are anarchists.

The JDL Online Harassment Scam

As the movement against the apartheidist state of Israel has grown, the JDL has shifted in its selection of targets.  At an increasing pace, the new targets of the JDL are American dissidents that speak out against Israeli crimes.  Many of the more vociferous of these critics are anarchists.  Consequently, anarchists are being increasingly targeted by the JDL.

The JDL recruits members from all walks of life.  Their primary criteria for selecting members are that the candidate members are Jewish, loyal to Israel and are willing to snitch or commit crimes against their friends and associates.  The JDL's techniques vary, depending upon target, but there is a consistent technique used in their online operations.  This article explains this technique in an effort to warn their targets and save them some grief.

Among the favorite recruits of the JDL are lawyers, especially those with a computer background.  This lawyers, in conjunction with other tech-savy recruits, cyber stalker a target.  Members of the JDL are informed, nation wide, of the JDL's desire to target an individual.  Any JDL member with access to the target's medical records, personnel files or family is urged to provide defamatory information.  Much of this information (or disinformation) is not publicly available.  The JDL takes advantage of this fact in order to create the illusion that various persons known to the target are the source of the harassment.  The goal is to get the target to begin accusing third parties of being the source of the harassment.  The JDL lawyers then send anonymous messages to the wrongly accused third parties, urging them to sue the target.  The JDL lawyers even seek avenues to become the legal advocates of the wrongly accused third parties.  Apparently, these lawyers believe that this is legal.  I question their assumption.

This scam is entirely analogous to a personal injuries lawyer running the following scam:

Imagine a personal injury lawyer driving down the highway, intentionally causing motorists to crash into other motorists.  Upon a successful attempt to create an accident, the lawyer gets out of his car and gives the injured party his card suggesting that he can represent the injured party to sue the other party.  The accident itself was caused by the lawyer.  This is, in all ways, a racket.  It is a form of organized crime and it is a scam.

To date, I have knowledge of two anarchists targeted with this scam.  One in Boston and one in Seattle.

More information needed. This story is unsubstantiated until you provide, people, events, documentation, some record that this has transpired.
