Ultra-Orthodox Drug Ring? Of Course… Not??? – Implausible Deniability

THE TIMES OF ISRAEL REPORTS:

Ultra-Orthodox men busted at airport with 7.5 kilos of coke

One suspect tells investigators he was given suitcase in Amsterdam and wasn’t aware of its contents; police hunting larger drug ring

Israeli customs officials recently arrested two ultra-Orthodox men at Ben Gurion Airport in possession of 7.5 kilograms (16.5 pounds) of cocaine stashed in a suitcase.

Several other men are suspected of involvement in attempt to smuggle the illegal substance, Channel 2 reported Friday.

A suspect’s lawyer told Channel 2 that his client was arrested two weeks ago and said he was given the suitcase in Amsterdam to bring to Israel without knowledge of its contents.

Police were investigating the possibility of a larger drug smuggling ring attempting to bring hundreds of pounds of cocaine into the country.

The bust was the latest in a series of arrests of alleged drug smugglers attempting to sneak illegal substances into the country. In July officers seized five kilograms (11 pounds) of ecstasy found in liquid form in a man’s suitcase.

The drug, said to be worth NIS 2 million ($524,000), was concealed inside wine bottles and absorbed within the walls of a suitcase.

Three ultra-Orthodox Israeli men were also nabbed in July for allegedly operating an international drug trafficking operation after authorities found thousands of ecstasy pills on their person at the airport.

According to a Walla news report, their traditional ultra-Orthodox apparel didn’t raise suspicions among airport and customs authorities.

One suspect, a 25-year-old man from Netanya, was nabbed upon landing at Ben Gurion Airport in possession of six kilograms — 13,000 pills — of ecstasy in his suitcase and another kilo of “raw drug material of great worth,” according to the ultra-Orthodox news site B’hadrei Haredim. The other two suspects, a 22-year-old man from Beitar Illit and a 26-year-old from Jerusalem, were rounded up shortly afterward.

  1. I was watching a drug ed movie and they showed as a part of it how drug dealers use orthodox jews to transport drugs. It was pretty sickening.

  2. Here’s what I don’t get about you entire website.

    Does anybody with some brain molecules in his head really believe that, as a whole, the othodox, ultra orthodox, or jewish for that matter, community is better than anyone else?
    That there are no ultra ultra orthodix croook, scoundrels or pedophiles??
    Is that the premise of this whole website?
    To educate the world at large that there are “ultra” drug dealerrs and pimps and pedos??

    Wow…you exposed a “frum” guy who deals in coke!

    In other words, is it your expectation and premise that ALL people who keep many rituals and practices need to be crime free?

    You’ve discovered America!!
    There are serious issues within the jewish community including the most “observant”
    They have crooks, cheats, thieves andabusers.
    Mazal tov.

    I don’t get it.
    Do you really expect a person who keeps shabbat and kashrut and fasts on tisha b’av to automatically be perfect?
    Do they claim to be?

    And here’s the real question.

    Do you blame or smear an entire community for actions of even many individuals??

    I know the religious community. The Rabbis and leaders are kept very busy dealing with lots of bad ugly stuff so what? Is it any better anywhere else?

    How many non orthodox drug dealers, abusers pedophiles are out there?

    I have the same issues with you when you and your deranged commentors attacl a particular group for the actions of even many individuals

    I posit, that as a whole, taken in context, the traditional jewish community stands head and shoulders way above most other groups worldwide.

    Let’s hope you can respond in the respectful spirit I have written

  4. Do not wonder why Israel is plagued by Drugs and why so many young Israeli die from overdose .

    You get the answer right here . The Ultra Orthodox bring the drugs into the country .
    See if they care as long as they make BIG bucks . That’s all that matters .
    The Ulra Orthodox really are the source of many evils and this one in particular .
    They should be shoved to jail and never see the light again .
