An Israeli-American Jewish Michael Kadar convicted for making more than 2,000 of anti-Semitic threats against US Jewish institutions, airlines, police stations and even a professional basketball team’s plane, was sentenced to 10 years in prison Thursday by an Israeli court.

The 20-year-old’s bomb threats against Jewish institutions in the United States sparked fears of a rise in anti-Semitism in the country.

Some of the offences were committed when he was a minor, the ruling said.

Kadar was arrested when he was a minor.
