Another Jewish child-sex abuse case

It's interesting that The Jewish Daily Forward and other Jewish publications written by and for Jewish audiences actually expose Jewish crimes, while the Jewish-owned Western press rarely covers Jewish crimes, at least not in any substantial way.

Remember all those front page stories of pedophilia and child abuse committed by Catholic priests? Why isn't this story, similar in nature, on the cover of the New York Times? Is it because the Jewish-owned Western press has an agenda and is primarily concerned with propagandizing and brainwashing it's largely non-Jewish readership, in addition to covering for crimes committed by Jews around the world? Is this child sex-abuse story not worthy of coverage in the Western press because Jews are implicated in depraved, abhorrent behavior?

It seems Jews must be portrayed in a positive light at all times in the Western press.

May all child molesters and pedophiles BURN IN HELL!

A child sex abuse scandal in Australia’s Jewish community has spilled into America, as a pending extradition, arrests in Australia and a slew of cover-up allegations put that community’s response to molestation under scrutiny.

Australian police are seeking to extradite convicted child molester David Kramer, currently in jail in Farmington, Mo., on suspicion of having abused children at a Chabad school in Melbourne during the 1990s.

Kramer, who was reportedly spirited out of Australia by one of Melbourne’s Chabad leaders following abuse allegations, is halfway through a seven-year prison sentence for sodomizing a 12-year-old boy in St. Louis.

According to members of the Australian community, he is not the only molester to end up in the United States after Australian community leaders failed to report them to legal authorities. Other molesters fled the country more recently as suspicion of abuse fell on them, community members say. [...]

Sexual abuse is difficult enough for many victims to report, but Orthodox Jewish survivors and their families often find it much harder, because of the tight-knit nature of their communities and because of concerns that they are violating religious laws such as mesirah, which prohibits reporting on a fellow Jew to secular authorities. Many are also worried about committing a chilul Hashem, a desecration of God’s name. [...]

Chabad institutions have taken a more liberal approach. A beit din, or religious court, in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn issued a ruling around the time that the Melbourne scandal broke, telling followers who suspect abuse that they are not violating religious laws by reporting their suspicions to the police.

Nevertheless, many survivors and their families fear being kicked out of synagogues and schools, or ruining marriage opportunities because of the taint of an abuse allegation.
