Orthodox Jewish Dealer Is Said to Aid Scheme on Terrorist Funds

Orthodox Jewish Gem Dealer Is Said to Aid Scheme on Terrorist Funds

Yehuda Abraham is a slight, stooped 76-year-old gem dealer, with a house in Queens, an office in New York's diamond district and shops around the world.
One night last October, prosecutors say, a client entered Mr. Abraham's 12th-floor Midtown office and handed him $30,000 in hundred dollar bills, an odd, if believable transaction in the world of international gem dealers.
Mr. Abraham, by the government's account, counted out every note, then gave the client his business card. But this was not a jewelry sale, prosecutors allege. It was a secretive deal, with a code number and a cash commission, in which Mr. Abraham agreed to transfer the client's money to a bank account in Europe, out of the sight of federal regulators.
That transaction, if it occurred as federal prosecutors say, has landed Mr. Abraham, an immigrant who came to America nearly half a century ago, in the middle of an international dragnet that prosecutors said took into custody a dangerous arms dealer and his accomplices who were willing to bring missiles into the United States to shoot down passenger jetliners.
Prosecutors said in federal court yesterday that Mr. Abraham was the money man, a shadowy figure who facilitated the work of terrorists by giving them the means to finance their actions — the purchase of the missiles — through an informal money transfer system, known as hawala, which is common in the Middle East and a preferred method of finance for terrorists.
Mr. Abraham walked slowly into a federal courtroom in Manhattan yesterday, a curious figure described by some as an honest businessman and prominent member of the Jewish community in Rego Park. His rabbi showed up to offer moral support, and his brothers and sisters and children filled two aisles in the courtroom, as Mr. Abraham's lawyer, Larry Krantz, insisted this was a misunderstanding.
"I think there is a misconception to his role in this case," Mr. Krantz said.
Mr. Abraham, president of Ambuy Gem Corp., was arrested Tuesday by federal agents along with two other men — Hemant Lakhani, a British citizen, and Moinudden Ahmed Hameed, of Malaysia.
Mr. Lakhani has been identified by prosecutors as an international arms dealer and charged with providing material support to terrorists as well as selling arms without a license. Prosecutors said he was trying to peddle shoulder-launch missiles to terrorists. Despite the prosecutors' claim that Mr. Abraham and Mr. Hameed aided Mr. Lakhani's terrorist dealings, the two have been charged only with conspiring to operate an unlicensed money transmitting business, a charge that at the most could mean five years in prison.
"Yes, this elderly gentleman in poor health significantly helped broker the sale of a surface to air missile," said Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Purpura as he asked a judge to hold Mr. Abraham without bail.
But Federal Magistrate Judge Andrew J. Peck was not persuaded.
"I fail to see any allegation that could be read fairly proving or alleging that Mr. Abraham was providing money for weapons as opposed to any other black-market activity," Judge Peck said. He set bond and conditions of release pending trial, but stayed his decision until Mr. Abraham appears in court in Newark today.
Mr. Abraham has lived and worked for the last 40 years as a New York gem dealer, a career that has taken him as far away as Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia. Yesterday, men who worked with him for years on West 47th Street described him as a grandfather, an observant Jew and a well-known proprietor. Their reaction was one of disbelief.
"For a Jew to do something like that, I cannot believe it or understand it," said a 49-year-old jewelry wholesaler whose shop is on 47th Street. "He's a prominent member of our community. To do something like that is crazy."
The world of the diamond district, though, is a cash-rich one, where unset gems must often be purchased in cash, and where wealthy customers will often pay in bundles of bills. A law enforcement official said yesterday that behind the bustling facade of the diamond district is a nebulous world of murky financial transactions where federal agents have long focused on money laundering and other crimes.
Gem merchants acknowledged yesterday that large amounts of cash flow across international borders every day, but insisted that it is done in legal and documented ways. "This business is very sensitive. People are very careful," the jewelry wholesaler said.
Mr. Abraham's relatives appeared stunned and angry as they left the court yesterday. They refused to comment, and the lawyer, Mr. Krantz, also refused to discuss Mr. Abraham's life, his work or the charges against him. In court, Mr. Krantz and the prosecutors described Mr. Abraham as a wealthy and successful man with more than $1 million equity in his home and shops in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
But in court papers, prosecutors painted a more sinister picture of Mr. Abraham. The papers suggest that he was also involved in the hawala cash transfer system for some time and that he had a good reputation among those who used it.
In 2002, the prosecutors said, Mr. Lakhani, interested in proving his good faith with missile dealers overseas, enlisted Mr. Abraham to send $30,000 to a bank in Europe. He was described, in tape-recorded conversations with other participants, as trustworthy and well known. To ensure security of the deal, there would be a code. The person posing as a buyer of missiles — actually a government co-operator — was given the serial number of a one dollar bill. Later, the authorities say, after Mr. Abraham counted out the $100 bills in his office, he reached into his pocket and turned over a dollar bill with the exact serial number. The deal was complete, except for Mr. Abraham's fee of $1,500, prosecutors said.

This story defies all sense of reason or logic.
It simply defies description.
(And not because, as reported, that a devout Orthodox Jew was allowed entry into the Wahabbi Whore-Mongering Kingdom of Saudi Arabia whose offical policy prohibits Jews.)
It sounds something you might see on the Israeli version of Twilight Zone ,the story of a how a devout, totally innocent Jew inexplicably finds himself in the center of one of the most shameful scenarios imaginable, in God's desire to teach Yehuda a lesson in humility he'll never forget.

This story is most perplexing.
God Damn It! Don't we Jews have enough enemies? We've got to have this miserable traitorous scumbag as a key player in this unspeakably heinous act, (a highly respected member of he Orthodox Jewish community yet!) involved with the lowest forms of life, and for what? a $1500 commision????

Well, please allow me to give that other famous Jew spy, Johnathan Pollard credit here. A least he spied on our country based on his convoluted, misguided set of principles and conscience, in addition to the several million dollars he received from the Israeli government.

And what's the damn story with the charges?? The DA has been able to come up with ONLY this one pathetically measly charge that carries with a maximum five year penalty????

And what the hell is it with the damn Judge and his cockamamie comment in giving this scum bail?

Most perplexing.

And despite all the highly charged talk of hatred and discrimination against Muslims post-911 and how they're being singled out simply based on their religion (like Mike Hawash), I would definitely NOT put it past his attorney from using "Anti-Semitism" as the basis for the government charge against this putrid traitorous rat. LOL!

It was such a good day for Homeland Security and the Bush administration, the media just had to read the DNC talking points and somehow spin these arrests into a "bad" thing.

ABC News (thread on FR) has portrayed the story up as a sting operation and a set up of a basically innocent man.

Savage mentioned on his radio show last night that ABC would have much prefered to have us wait til the REAL missles (all 50) got here - then there would have been a story. *sigh* He really trashed ABC for their treatment of this story.

Nice that we're in front of some plots.

Savage is correct about ABC News. If any of those missiles had killed Americans, ABC could have pointed to the deficiencies in Homeland Security and how the Bush administration hasn't protected Americans at all. With the left up is down and right is wrong.

Sorry. No pass here. If he did as he is alleged to have done, he broke a bunch of laws on an international scale. That he did not ask what the money was for doesn't excuse him morally. Plausible deniability is an ignorant legal custom.

I couldn't believe what I was hearing on ABC News last night; even by their standards, it was taking an extremely serious matter and making it into a fairy tale to serve their own political purpose. So what that the missile as imported couldn't work? The perp thought it could, expected it would and sold it for that purpose. By Brian Ross' standard, you couldn't convict any pedophile who thinks he's arranged a meeting over the internet with a 13 year old girl at a mall and instead runs into a 35 year old female detective.

The situation here (I don't know if you're in this category) is that every time a Muslim does something that supports terrorism, many of those who are pro-Israel want to put them all in jail, call off all negotiations until the Palestinian government is able to stop all violence, and destroy all things Muslim.

When a Jewish person is found somehow complicit in terrorism, it's a double standard. You defend him, don't look for any connections to Israel, and refuse to recognize that maybe, just maybe, there are some Jewish people who have contributed to the level of violence.

There was so much talk after 911 about Jewish involvement. This is bound to bring that discussion up again. I hope those who support Israel also support an honest investigation if this leads anywhere like that.

Do you know he didn't? Do you suppose this is the first time he engaged in this "alleged" practice? Is he a personal friend?

You're letting your relationship with this man taint your thinking, in my opinion.

Do you not find it strange that he frequently travelled to Saudi Arabia? A Jew in Saudi Arabia? Unless of course he was coordinating with those in Saudi Arabia who also support the terrorists.

What about Hong Kong? Sure it could have been innocent but Hong Kong is also a hot bed of intrigue between the Communist Chinese and the Indonesian Muslims. Remember Clinton, the Ryadis, and Communists Chinese contributions to Slick?

Consider all the facts.

But isn't your saying "he laundered the money and didn't know about the missiles" a bit like the Swiss bankers saying they "deposited the gold and didn't know (and felt no reason to ask) where it came from" (and then, of course, had no idea what happened to it).

"Do you not find it strange that he frequently travelled to Saudi Arabia?"

This whole story is bizarre. But it doesn't say he frequently went to Saudi Arabia, only that his business had "taken him" there, so, he could have been there only once. And non-Muslims can go there, they just can't practice their religions and can't enter Mecca, and maybe Medina too. The only legit reasons I can imagine a jeweler going to Hong Kong or SA is to sell jewelry to rich people.

I do find it odd that he'd participate in that subterranean Muslim money transfer system, but maybe all those diamond guys do. Well, you know, not every single one of them.

This story just shows how many people will do evil for a little bit of money. Sad.

"Mr. Abraham was the money man, a shadowy figure who facilitated the work of terrorists by giving them the means to finance their actions"

If so, this elderly man is no better than the Rosenbergs and should be executed for treason. Being the "money man" for terrorists makes him a terrorist. Worst of all is that America has been the realization of Jewish hopes - it has allowed Jews a better life than any dreamed of in their entire history.

Here they found the Promised Land - and this crawling scum takes a commission on a money laundering scheme with terrorists? I certainly hope he is roundly rejected by the rest of my fellow Jews, as were the Rosenbergs before him.

Actions like these are why I have not darkened the door of a synagogue for decades. For some reason, all too many of my co-religionists have confused the call for social justice with socialism.

DooDahhh,

If someone betrays you, and in the process kills many, is not it incumbent on you to remain alive to support those who depend on you, and love you, AND TESTIFY? Perhaps kill the customer who used you to kill others, but to kill yourself is arguably a sin in and of its self,

Better yet, tell it to a jury and let them find him guilty. Then we can all feel that justice has been done, and those close to you would not have been added to the list of victims.

That's his story and he's probably telling the truth. Why would the other guys want to tell him what the money was really for?

Still, he committed crimes that helped terrorists. If you drive drunk and accidentally kill someone, you end up with a bigger punishment than if you drive drunk and get pulled over by a cop for swerving in your lane. Lock him and make an example of him. Money launderers should especially not be helping Arabs or Muslims.

Geez dennis, now being 76 is an excuse? You should import a midi of nice violin music into your post...it would really help set a sympathetic tone and help sell your sob story of a feeble old man getting snookered.

Again, your double standards are showing and I'm enjoying (but not the least surprised) that you're exposing of yourself as intellectually inconsistent.
