A Man Who Said He Wanted To "Kill All Of The Jews" Was Convicted Of A Hate Crime

A 33-year-old man was convicted of a hate crime on Monday for attacking a man who said he was Jewish outside a Cincinnati restaurant.

Izmir Koch was with a group of friends in February 2017 when he began shouting in Russian if anyone else outside the restaurant, Mirage, was Jewish. A Lithuanian man who spoke Russian said he was, and Koch ran over and attacked him, according to court documents.

Koch punched the man in the back of the head, knocked him down, and kicked him, leaving the man with a broken bone in his face and bruised ribs. His friends also joined in on the attack, but in a voluntary statement to authorities, Koch denied being part of the fight.

Before and during the attack, Koch said “I want to kill all of the Jews” and “I want to stab the Jews," witnesses and the victim testified. He was convicted of a hate crime and lying to the FBI.

1. It makes one wonder who let him in and how such decisions are made?

2. Where does all that hatred come from?

Most people who are standing around are thinking about what they want to do next and how about some ice cream, but this asshole has suddenly decided to attack Jews. Antisemitism seems to spread like a braineating tapeworm that jumps from host to host. It's weird and totally unpredictable.

10. Isn't it scary to think...

, given recent surveys, frankly, there are more anti-Semites in the world than there are Jews!

4. That sucks. (His conviction, I mean)

Since when, is lying to the F.B.I. a crime?





Yes, Agnes, its sarcasm. Ya see, Michael Flynn admitted to lying to the F...aw, forget it.

6. Well, YES...that was a hate crime Koch is not only guilty of that, but is also STUPID...

He should win the award for the most stupid person in the world.

And what's up with someone ANSWERING a call in the crowd of "Who here is Jewish?" I bet he doesn't do that, again.

Koch needs to be locked up. And deported, if he's not American.

7. Who is Jewish?

How about the Spartacus solution? EVERYONE should say, "I am Jewish."
