definitely not good for the Jews

NYPost on that giant NJ indictment that includes several rabbis, and international trafficking in kidneys coming thru Israel:

Israel Dwek — the father of Solomon "Shlomo" Dwek, who helped the feds nail three New Jersey mayors and several rabbis in Brooklyn last week — plans to sit shiva for his son because he is so disgusted with his turning on other Jews, reported the Web site

I recall as a young reporter at the Philadelphia Daily News, I reported on a rabbi arrested for fleeing embezzling charges, at the airport, and a friend’s dad said to me, Why are you reporting that? Gosh. It’s an attitude.

Update: New York Jewish Week says that the shiva story is false, or an exaggeration: that Dwek’s father, a rabbi, denounced the practice of Jews informing on other Jews, but didn’t declare his son dead. Meantime, Angry Arab says that the emphasis in the Times on the alleged culprits being "Syrian Jews" is a careful removal of the social scorn from European Jews.
