Jew Convicted of Murdering 5 People Flees to Israel and Later Becomes Obama’s Guest at the White House

Jew Convicted of Murdering 5 People Flees to Israel and Later Becomes Obama’s Guest at the White House

Posted: November 21, 2009 by crescentandcross in Uncategorized

An article appearing in a recent online edition of the Jewish Forward lays out perfectly the criminal syndicate that is Israel and how any Jew anywhere, convicted even of multiple murders, can not only flee there and be safe, but even be invited to the White House later.

Begin Forward article–

In his lively introduction of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the recent General Assembly in Washington, Leonid Nevzlin reminded the audience just how unexpected and unusual a role this was for him.

“There was a time not so long ago when I couldn’t even imagine standing here in this place, in this country, only blocks from the decision-making capital of the world, with this responsibility,” Nevzlin said, describing his life as a businessman and apathetic Jew in Moscow before he made aliyah in 2003 and became a heavyweight among Jewish philanthropists.

His prominent speech — which earned him a standing ovation by the collected leadership of the American Jewish federation world — was the privilege given to him as international chairman of the yearly gathering and its major sponsor. And though the exact figure has not been disclosed, organizers of the G.A. have told the Forward that his money played a significant part in making the three-day event happen. Nevzlin’s charity, NADAV, was also conspicuous as one of the main organizers of the conference’s many forums and workshops.

The speech represented a crowning moment of what has been a complete rebranding effort by Nevzlin, 50, erasing his past as a Russian oligarch who just narrowly escaped jail, convicted in absentia last year in a Moscow courtroom to life in prison for ordering the murder of five people. A recent article about him in Forbes magazine — which estimated his wealth in 2004 to be $2 billion — was headlined, “The One Who Got Away.”

Israel, which has refused repeated attempts to extradite him to Russia, has helped greatly in this transformation. He has become an important philanthropist there, using his charity to fund projects that promote “Jewish peoplehood” and to gain influence and respectability in the process. This past September, he made a donation of $6 million to establish the Museum of the Jewish People, a new iteration of Beit Hatfutsot, Tel Aviv’s Diaspora Museum.

Now, with a very visible onstage handshake with the Israeli prime minister and a visit with President Obama at the White House as one of 50 invited guests during the G.A., Nevzlin is effectively positioning himself to become a philanthropic force in the United States, as well.

According to Dede Feinberg, co-chair of this year’s G.A. and former president of the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington, Nevzlin’s problems with the Russian authorities were not an issue in granting him the chairmanship. “I did not know about it. And it was only after the G.A. that I asked,” Feinberg said. “And I learned that he was completely exonerated by courts in Israel. I said, okay, good enough for me.” Feinberg was referring to Israeli courts’ refusal to extradite Nevzlin.

The only hint in Nevzlin’s speech that he has a past that still hounds him was his mention of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the onetime head of the Yukos oil company, who is now sitting in a Siberian jail, serving a nine-year prison sentence. Nevzlin was Khodorkovsky’s deputy, and together with him he held the controlling shares in Yukos, a multibillion-dollar enterprise that made them both very rich and powerful in the 1990s.

In October 2003, Khodorkovsky was arrested for tax evasion and fraud, accused of embezzling $25 billion. He and his supporters, however, have blamed Vladimir Putin for inventing the charges as a way of breaking up the influential business empire. Khodorkovsky was then the richest man in Russia, and he made no secret of his political ambitions, funding opposition parties and democracy efforts.

The same month that Khodorkovsky was arrested, Nevzlin entered Israel on a tourist visa and began his self-imposed exile.

“My friend Khodorkovsky never came to terms with his Jewish identity, and that’s one of the reasons why Putin and his henchman have gotten him and many others behind the barbed wire of the modern-day Gulag,” Nevzlin told the G.A. in his speech.

Though he had been involved in reviving Jewish life in the former Soviet Union, it’s clear that Nevzlin immigrated to Israel not only because, as he put it in his speech, “it was time for me to join the Jewish people,” but also because he was escaping the fate that his friend and business partner had met. Nevzlin and his representatives did not return calls for comment on this story.

Not long after Nevzlin left, the Russian authorities charged him with a whole range of criminal offenses. He was said to have contracted out Yukos’s head of security — who is now serving a 24-year jail sentence and has denied both Nevzlin’s guilt and his own — to kill individuals who were getting in the way of Yukos’s business dealings. Among the dead were Valentina Korneyeva, a Moscow businesswoman who owned a building in central Moscow that Yukos’s holding firm, Menatap, wanted to buy, and Vladimir Petukhov, mayor of Nefteyugansk, where Yukos’s largest production unit was based.

Twice the Russian authorities tried to extradite Nevzlin, but both times Israel’s State Attorney’s Office denied the request, citing insufficient evidence. In 2006, the argument even reached Israel’s High Court of Justice, which concurred with the State Attorney’s Office.

Last summer, Russian courts tried and convicted Nevzlin in absentia and sentenced him to life in prison. Earlier this year, in response to an appeal, they upheld the verdict and ordered him to pay 5.5 million rubles, about $235,000, in compensation to the victims and their families.

Nevzlin has maintained that all the accusations against him are baseless, politically motivated fictions invented by Putin and his circle. The Russian authorities have continued to pursue Nevzlin’s extradition, even demanding that the United States, where he now travels frequently, hand him over. But his visit to the White House with Jewish leaders offers strong proof that he has been given a de facto exoneration by America’s government. The White House confirmed his visit and his meeting with Obama on November 9, but not whether he was vetted by the state department or any other government agency.

Meanwhile, his life in Israel has revolved largely around his philanthropic efforts. He set up an institute on Eastern European and Russian Judaism at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and has funded many projects through his charity, NADAV— named after himself and two other Yukos shareholders, Vladimir Dubov and Mikhail Brudno. Run by his daughter, it tries to confront what Nevzlin said in his G.A. speech was the biggest threat facing the Jewish world: “A failure to articulate a single, global Jewish identity.”

In addition to donating heavily to, and leading, the renewal of Israel’s Diaspora Museum, Nevzlin is on the board of governors of the Jewish Agency for Israel and the board of trustees of Keren Hayesod-United Israel Appeal.

Misha Galperin, executive vice president and CEO of the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington, said he was responsible for the marriage between Nevzlin and the Jewish Federations of North America, organizers of the G.A. He thinks that Nevzlin’s appearance at the gathering marks his entrance on the American Jewish scene. “Many people were quite taken with him,” Galperin said.

Asked if Nevzlin’s past had been an issue, Galperin bristled and wondered whether one would ask the same question of Natan Sharansky, the new head of the Jewish Agency for Israel who was accused by the Soviet Union of being a CIA agent and sentenced to 13 years in jail. “The two cases have absolutely the same validity,” Galperin said, “none.”

–end of Forward piece

Once again, the organically-criminal nature of the Jewish state is unmasked. One can just imagine the shrieking that would take place if someone convicted of murder in Israel–absentia or not–were to flee to another country and that country refused to extradite the criminal back to Israel for justice. Furthermore, the fact that Nevzlin–A MAN CONVICTED OF ORDERING THE MURDERS OF 5 PEOPLE–was treated as a guest in the White House by the president himself shows just who is running things in Washington.

More than this though, the most notable thing is the complete absence of outrage from the Jewish community. Much like their moral silence when it came to other infamous individuals such as Bernie Madoff and the organ harvesting rabbis, so too do American Jews obviously have no problem with one of their most powerful and important organizations associating with a convicted murderer, the attitude apparently one of “The victims were Gentiles, so what’s the BFD?”

And people still wonder why there is this thing known as “Islamic terrorism” when criminals such as this are free to come and go as they please and when American leaders are so willing to consort with men whose hands are covered with innocent blood?

Taslima Nasrin to Cartoonist Arif

Taslima Nasrin to Cartoonist Arif

The author of the Muhammad Biral carttoon should be seeking assistance from Biral or similar sources.

Islam and Muslim bashing is the most spectacular sport in the world today and many self centered, elitist and hyperactive people like Taslima Nasrin took advantage of it. Geert Wilders of Indonesian mother and Dutch father is audaciously anti-Muslim and shamelessly pro-Israel similar to infamous Ayaan Hirshi Ali and “expired” Ershad Manji are in the same predicament!

Anti-Arab and anti-Muslim Policies and Practices in the Police Service

Re: Anti-Arab and anti-Muslim Policies and Practices in the Police Service

CC to: Police Minister, Police Commissioner, Islamic Council

Dear Sir/Madam

A detective attached to your station is investigating an alleged incident at the car park of Hurlstone Park RSL. During my telephone conversation, I informed him that my witness statement won’t have an impact to the outcome of the case as I haven’t seen much. I also told him that I am fairly busy with various voluntary community activities.

Yesterday, I have received a fairly strong telephone call from him. Today I have received another stronger telephone call from another detective of your station. He told me that I could be arrested if I refuse to make a statement. This person told me, the court may issue a subpoena to appear at the hearing.

I therefore would like to ask you to please let me know the time, date and place of the hearing; so that I can present myself and provide a very limited witness accounts as mentioned above.

In the meantime please allow me to append extracts from Muslim Worshipers Attacked Outsdie Australian Mosque, Redfern Mosque Attack and Muslim Taxi Driver is Waiting for Justice and Beyond to demonstrate the visible existence of Anti-Arab and Anti-Muslim Policies and Practices in the Police Service and many sectors of the society.

1. A Muslim worshiper was a victim of pre-planned racist and sectarian attack in broad day light outside a Mosque. The law enforcement authorities and media outlets were not interested about the victim’s plight and the issue in general. This attack almost destroyed the victim’s life.

2. A totally innocent Muslim worshiper was attacked and severely injured due to rise of racism and sectarianism.

3. Again a Muslim taxi driver was unlawfully attacked by people known to police. Yet, the police, media and even the so called leadership of a taxi drivers’ organisation did nothing for him.

I am familiar with many cases like these ones and I can present them in an orderly manner if you want.

Finally, it becomes a must to ask you whether the Police Service got a well oiled policy and practice to deny Muslims and Arabs legal protection and assistance rather than prosecute and vilify them.

With thanks

Sincerely Yours

Muslim Worshipers Attacked Outsdie Australian Mosque


Friday, November 20, 2009 after the midday prayer people were coming out from Zetland Mosque of Sydney, Australia.

Then two loaded persons with their bull bar fitted utility arrived at the scene! They went on to insult worshipers with every obscene language and they also vandalised parked cars nearby. Then these attackers carried out their well planed physical attack on worshipers of that mosque. They punched and kicked one person, then dragged his unconscious body for about 50 yards. Then again, with a precision style, the attackers placed this unconscious person on the road and ran him over with their utility. This victim is now in coma at the St. Vincent Hospital, Darlinghurst.

Horrified worshipers immediately rang the ambulance and accosted with very difficult and non cooperative 000 operators! Fire truck appeared before the ambulance. Finally ambulance arrived after half an hour.

Police arrived too! However, initially the police priority was to disperse the crowd (probably to remove or reduce witnesses to weaken the case). They were harsh with the worshipers present and one aggressive police officer pushed one prime witness of this attack against the wall.

Australian media outlets are silent about this incident. Probably they are too busy to incite against Muslims and Arabs based on false and fabricated reasons and grounds with no right of reply!

Since posting of this blog and bloger’s discussion and visitation with Newtown and Redfern Police Stations respectively, one of the prime witnesses was asked to attend Redfern Police Station for a statement tomorrow.

Inquiry was made to a few media outlets regarding this matter and their responses were, “it is an old story and we won’t be interested”. When question was put to them, “are you familiar with the story”? Ironically, responses were negative too.

It was also reported that the attackers spat on worshipers before starting their vulgar and insane attack on Muslim worshipers.

A cool person reported the matter to police and followed the offenders and their vehicle from Zetland to Surry Hills. NSW Police apprehended them on the spot and according to police they are questioning them.

Redfern Mosque Attack


On an early morning of 19/12/2009 a Muslim worshipers was brutally attacked outside Redfern Mosque (Cnr Goodlet and Walker Street, Redfern, NSW). In this instance, two offenders appeared with a red colored BMW and they severely bashed the victim for no known reason and then these offenders fled the scene. Some passerby noticed the severely injured and senseless victim at the gutter and they called the police and ambulance respectively. The police cordoned off the scene and since then no one was charged for this crime!

Since 9/11, vandalism and attacks against Muslims went up in Australia including around the Redfern Mosque. Good residents of the area have been asking the authorities to install security cameras to arrest the crime spree without any success.

Surprisingly, similar to Muslim Worshipers Attacked Outside Australian Mosque the police failed to ask for public assistance through radio, television and newspaper! It is paramount that the wheel of justice is very slow for Muslims and someone is “managing” the media.

T.D.B. Gate Report (Taxi Driver Bashing Gate Report) 6

So the useless and anti-worker Coates did nothing for you in terms of workers compensation, prosecuting the offender, writing to the Workcover, organise taxi inspection and point out the total failure of network responsibilities, arrogant and anti worker attitude and practices of networks!

By the way, a few more taxi drivers were bashed and most of the incidents camera and safety equipment were at fault!! The network policies and practices were worse too.

Oh yes. Psychologists! Many taxi drivers were bashed and injured. I have not heard many were referred to Psychologists!! Why are they doing this to you? Are they trying to trap you into something? I just asked.

Could you also ask that Geoff about the failure of filling up the Workers Compensation Form by the bailor in question and who is going to pay for your ambulance and other bills?

The psychologist is all part of the process as your mental health is important. If you don't need him I'm O.K. with that.

Constable Dick is not on until 3pm today. I'll try and contact him today.

Workers Comp is an issue with Joey. I have to speak with Clare Moran of Cabsure in relation to your claim. She is not back until Monday.

Dear Geoff Coates,

Did you get the Police Report I sent last week. The Police Report last page says that "It is anticipated that the POI will be arrested after footage has been viewed."

From your meeting with TCS we know that there is footage after the M13 was pressed, but none before. But the Police know who the POI is and where he lives.

Would you please ask TCS to send the footage to the Police, explaining there is none before the M13, and asking the Police to arrest the POI as the Police report says. Or maybe you could write a letter to the police.

I meet with Veldish on Friday 9th January 2009.he has given some advises and asked me a copy of the police report. I am going to see him on Monday again with a police report. What you advise me?

Joe said don't need to talk with him about this matter. advised me to see with Veldish.

TCS did not send the footage to the police station yet. I requested him to send the footage ASAP.

Would you please let me know what should I do at this stage.

Thank you for your help,


T.D.B. Gate Report (Taxi Driver Bashing Gate Report) 5

Further to Unreserved Apology to Taxi Drivers and Immigrants and T.D.B. Gate Report (Taxi Driver Bashing Gate Report) 4, below, you are welcome to follow the event;

1. Time and Date: 7.30 pm, Friday, November 07, 2008

2. The offender: From 300 High Street near Short Street, Chatswood. It is a house and NOT a flat. It was an M1 job i.e. the taxi network must have his name and phone number(s).

3. Confrontation and reason of conflict: The passenger asked the driver to make an illegal u turn. The driver politely refused and said, "I have to move a bit more and make it safely". The passenger was aggressive and he said, "do I have to pay for this"? The passenger also said, "why the meter is $3.50? It should start from zero". The driver replied, "sir, the meter start from $3.15". The rudeness of the passenger went high. He charged the driver, "what the hell you Indians are here, it is my country, why don't you go back to India, ….". The passenger was unstoppable and abusing the driver continuously. The driver replied, "if you don't stop and do not allow me to drive properly, I can't take you to city and I have to drop you to your house. I won't charge you for that". The passenger said, "O.K". The driver dropped him near his house and did not charge any money. The passenger got out of the taxi and spat at the driver. Then he punched the driver a few times. The drive was injured and did not hit back.

4. Taxi Alarm: The driver activated the alarm but the M13 did not work. No one came to assist the driver. The injured driver asked help from his friends by his own mobile phone and they went to assist him

5. NSW Taxi Drivers Association: Taxi drivers contacted the NSW TDA Media Manager Faruque Ahmed and they have provided him information as the unfortunate event progressed on that night. In turn, Faruque alerted the media as information came to his hand.

6. Police: The police arrived at the scene after 50 minutes. The failed to show any interest to apprehend the offender, secure any evidence or crime scene i.e. blood soaked shirt, tie or any other items.

7. Ambulance: The Ambulance arrived 57 minutes later. They went on to wash the drivers face. The injured driver's friends asked them to take photo of the badly injured (visibly) driver. One ambulance worker went back to the ambulance and returned to say, "we don't have any camera". An argument developed. The police were not helpful at all during this episode! Assembled taxi drivers said, "we will go to report this to channel Nine first and then we will drive our friend to the hospital". At that time the injured driver could not see anything due to his swollen eye. However the police and ambulance staff virtually forced the driver to sign a piece of paper and they left the location for TCN 9.

8. TCN Nine: The 9 security guard was very helpful. The lady at the reception freaked out to see the badly injured driver and she did everything possible to comfort and assist the driver. She organized the media crews to interview drivers.

9. RNS Hospital: The drivers were confronted by three aggressive police officers at the hospital. One was holding a media briefing of Faruque Ahmed and screamed, "who is this Media Manger Faruque Ahmed? Why did he contact the media? Why are you talking to him and media? I am involved with the police union. Our union is the biggest union in this country and you can't win against us." The police visit at the hospital was to intimidate taxi drivers. They left the hospital with anger and without interviewing the injured driver. 10 minutes later two officers came back to hospital to take a statement from the injured driver. Assembled drivers asked a few valid questions to police officers but they refused to answer them.

10. Police Hijacking: During this commotion a taxi driver attempted to record this event in his mobile phone but the barking mad police officer ordered one of other officer to seize the phone from the taxi driver without his permission and checked the phone for possible recording of the conversation.

11. Police bully: The drivers said many good things including, "why are you so angry? The paper you are holding in your hand now got Mr. Faruque Ahmed's phone number. Why don't you ring him and direct your question to him?"

12. Perverting the Course of justice: The police asked the driver to see him seven or eight days later, so that he can take his photograph as evidence! Why not on the spot at the day of assault? Is it a perversion of course of justice?

13. Legal Point: Sunny does NOT have an Operator's accreditation and whatever is written in the so called contract between him and his bailor are not worth the paper it is written on. For details please refer Dave Musgrave vs Premier Taxi Network case.

14. Anti-Taxi Driver and Lying TCS: The drivers went to TCS and they were told by the TCS staff, "we have not received any alarm". When drivers asked them to down load the pictures, they were told, "we need police permission". The drivers presented the police business card to the TCS staff and requested them to contact those officers for further assistance. However, at one stage they were told, "there are no pictures, everything is blank". The injured driver questioned a female TCS staff for their failure to contact him during this episode. She replied, "we don't have your up to date phone number". The driver replied with frustration, "six weeks ago the police took my phone number from the TCS network to investigate a stolen card used in my taxi and now you are telling me you don't have my real phone number!"

15. Chatswood Police Station: The injured taxi driver rang Chatswood police station several times to follow up police instructions given to him earlier. Chatswood police knew the incident but they could not provide him any assistance. The driver left his mobile number and requested police officer Dick of that station to contact him. Dick or no one contacted him.

16. Enemy of Taxi Drivers: No one from the TCS contacted the driver. From Jeff's confession, "98% taxi drivers reject" the so called TCS counseling" because `Dracula can't and should not be in-charge of blood bank' in the first place.

17. The TCS Cover Ups: From Jeff's report it is very clear that the taxi camera and sound system was not working at that time and date, the TCS staff did not call the police or ambulance, the radio room failed to broadcast any message to other taxis (contrary to previous TCS lies) and taxi drivers’ welfare does not exist in their culture.

18. The NSW TDA Responsibility: As we agreed earlier, we must write to the NSW WorkCover, NSW Police Commissioner, NSW Ministry of Transport, NSW Ambulance, Unions (Labor) NSW and other bodies without any delay.

19. Frustration of the Victim: I have received a frustrated SMS from Sunny and he has every right to express himself due to monumental idiocy of Jeff.

20. Mafia Protection Law: Why, under the law, the taxi networks/companies/taxi council pty ltd are NOT responsible for their actions and inactions in regards to bailee taxi drivers, passengers etc. etc.?

21. Law Reform: Why the NSW TDA Committee was less willing to accept my suggestions i.e. write to the authorities and requesting them to remove any anomalies under the Duty of Care provision of the NSW Occupational Health and Safety Act due to bailor and bailee relationship?

22. The Taxi Mafia Love: According to the aggrieved driver, the TCS asked (or ordered) him to attend their office sometime this week.

23. Workers Compensation Claim: No one filled up any Workers Compensation Claim! Why the hell a simple custom of filling up a W.C.C. form does not exist in the taxi industry culture?

24. Confusing "Taxi": One of the taxi mafia mouthpiece namely Taxi have printed many untrue and confusing information to mislead taxi drives, owners and public. In short the whole episode was designed to defraud authorities, legitimize illegal acts and pass the bucks to bailee drivers.

Let it be known

Further to Unreserved Apology to Taxi Divers and Immigrants and T.D.B. Gate Report (Taxi Driver Bashing Gate Report) 4, I have to make it clear that I am going to act against racism, anti-taxi driver mentality and mechanisms.

I said earlier and the famous Media Watch of ABC has proven the case against Channel Seven Network beyond reasonable doubt. Yet, I cannot get any reason behind a consistent non-co-operation from some of the TDA executive committee members. Now I have to ask these questions officially;

1. Doses the NSW TDA endorse racism and anti-Taxi Driver activities like the Channel Seven Network story in question and

2. Doses the NSW TDA endorse all of the anti-Taxi Driver policies and instruments evident in T.D.B. Gate Report (Taxi Driver Bashing Gate Report) 4?

3. Why some of the NSW TDA Executives are reluctant to act for the taxi drivers' interest?

4. Why some of the NSW TDA Executives are reluctant to stand up against racism and other anti-taxi driver activities?

Taxi Driver Bashed at Chatswood

At about 8.00 p.m., Friday, November 07, 2008, a Silver Service taxi driver went to pick up a radio booking job from 300 High Street near Short Street, Chatswood. The passenger asked the driver to make an illegal U Turn and following that an argument developed and the passenger severely bashed the Taxi Driver. He was driving T 5067 (Taxis Combined Services network).

The driver activated the M13 button and the alarm did not work. The driver failed to get any assistance from the taxi network. Passing taxi drivers called the police and ambulance. After 45 minutes of waiting they contacted the NSW TDA Media Manager and drove the driver to the hospital. Mr. Faruque Ahmed of the NSW TDA alerted the media concerning this serious assault. Three police officers went to the hospital and questioned taxi drivers present there for contacting the NSW Taxi Drivers Association and media. Eventually the staff of the Royal North Shore Hospital asked the police to leave the premises so that they could treat the injured driver.

Sydney Taxi drivers are asking the following questions:

1. Why the M13 button (safety alarm system) failed to work?

2. Why the TCS taxi Network has failed to provide assistance to the injured taxi driver?

3. Why the NSW police and ambulance failed to attend the taxi driver in question?

4. Why the police questioned taxi drivers at the hospital?

5. Why it has been so difficult to obtain the driver's details from authorities so urgent help could be provided to him and his family?
