Get your Fresh Hot Kidney and a Dradle!


Adam Carolla used to have a bit on his radio show called "Not a Jew" where Non-Jewish people doing insane or criminal things would be talked about then it would be announced that they were, "Definitely, not a Jew." Today a story out of New Jersey will put some heat on the notion that Jews don't commit crimes.
44 people have been alleged to be involved in corruption and money laundering. 5 of those arrested are Rabbi's accused of money laundering. Jews and money laundering... I love it when a stereotype works out.
Another man named Levy Izhak Rosenbaum, Definitely a Jew, offered to sell a human kidney for $160,000 dollars. First off, where is he getting said kidney? Have the Jews filled in where the Italians can't because the microscope is on their communities for organized crime? A kidney... Human body parts for sale. I'm aghast.
Many politicians are being caught up in raid as well including Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano III.
This is business as usual on the East Coast. I have a NYC client that flies me in rather than using someone local because of the rampant corruption. I don't know what to do with blank envelopes because i'm from Seattle (some in Seattle might know what to do with them, don't get me wrong). But on the East Coast people just look away. That last tower crane accident there with the Kodiak Crane was due to a bad weld repair. The repair company warned the owner that they were not qualified to do the work. The owner ponied up another $10,000 over the bid and the lack of qualifications concerns disappeared. Business as usual on the East Coast.
The big picture is that corruption knows no limits. Religious leaders are revered within many communities. This makes them a perfect front for things just like this money laundering program. Don't let this problem go unnoticed. Jews are as corrupt as anyone else and vigilant eye should be kept on them as well.

"US corruption probe nets dozens

More than 40 people, including politicians, officials and several rabbis have been arrested in a major FBI operation the US.

Three mayors from the state of New Jersey and two members of the state legislature were among those held.

One man is accused of alleged kidney trafficking involving Israeli donors.

Three hundred FBI agents raided dozens of locations in New Jersey and New York as part of a 10-year probe into corruption and money laundering.

Prosecutors say the arrests were part of a "dual-tracked" investigation.

Acting US Attorney Ralph Marra told reporters there were 29 suspects on what he termed the "public corruption" side of the investigation, including the politicians.

On the other side, he said, there were 15 suspects in connection with alleged international money-laundering, including five rabbis and their "associates".

'Vulnerable people'

Prosecutors accuse one man of dealing in human kidneys from Israeli donors for transplant for a decade.

It's alleged that "vulnerable people" would give up a kidney for $10,000 (£6,000) and these would then be sold on for $160,000 (£97,000).

Law enforcement officials say investigations originally focused on a network they allege laundered tens of millions of dollars through charities controlled by rabbis in New Jersey and neighbouring New York.

It widened to include alleged official corruption with links to a New Jersey construction boom.

Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano, Secaucus Mayor Dennis Elwell, Jersey City Deputy Mayor Leona Beldini and Ridgefield Mayor Anthony Suarez were among those arrested.

State legislators Harvey Smith and Daniel Van Pelt were also arrested.

Mr Marra said: "It seemed that everyone wanted a piece of the action. The corruption was widespread and pervasive. Corruption was a way of life for the accused."

He said politicians had "willingly put themselves up for sale" and clergymen had "cloaked their extensive criminal activity behind a facade of rectitude".

The BBC's Jane O'Brien says the money laundering ring reportedly spanned the US, Israel and Switzerland.

Jon Corzine, the Governor of New Jersey, said: "The scale of corruption we're seeing as this unfolds is simply outrageous and cannot be tolerated."

Ed Kahrer, an FBI agent who has worked on the investigation from the start, said: "New Jersey's corruption problem is one of the worst, if not the worst, in the nation.

"It has become ingrained in New Jersey's political culture," he said.

Another FBI agent said: "The list of people we arrested sounds like it should be the roster for a meeting of community leaders, but sadly they weren't meeting in a boardroom this morning, they were in the FBI booking room."

Correspondents say the number of people arrested is large even by New Jersey standards, where more than 130 public officials have either admitted to corruption or been found guilty of it since 2001.

I think it's refreshing to hear about religions ,other than Christianity, making the headlines.

If the guy was trying to sell his own kidney, I've got no problem with it. If it was someone else's, however, it had better be as a licensed agent of the original owner.

Somehow, I doubt this is the case.

I think that I saw it on the news last night... poor people in Israel have been selling body parts and he's been doing this for like ten years. It's illegal to sell human body parts for medical transplant. If it were legalized you'd see murders all over the place. It does make sense to allow it if it just weren't for satan's evil doing that would cause us to murder each other for profit.

Yeah, we don't need body shops (ala Cyberpunk) cropping up all over the place, but I dislike the part where I am not allowed to sell something that is blatantly my property (part of myself). Should we also make it illegal for people to sell their hair to wig makers?

Oooo, I grew up as a wrestler and I could start a new business taking people down, sinking in a double leg ride and shaving their heads! Now we're talking! Be back for more in six months punk!
Me Libertarian leanings agree with your point though. I'm guessing it's a concern of not being able to properly monitor it like say the Shark Fin or cartilage, or Tiger parts trades. The precipice of that cliff between rights and loss of control is difficult to discern.
