Brooklyn, NY - Almost one year to the day after an Israeli court granted an appeal delaying the extradition of former Crown Heights resident Yitzchak Shuchat to the United States, According to Israeli news 1  the Israeli Supreme Court has ruled that Shuchat must return to his former home within the next sixty days to face assault charges.

Shuchat, a former member of the Crown Heights Shmira crime patrol was indicted for second degree assault as a hate crime, following the alleged April 2008 beating of a black man, Andrew Charles who was suspected of attacking a fourteen year old Jewish girl, as previously reported on VIN News.  Both Shuchat and Charles, the son of an NYPD officer had both stated publicly that the beating was not racially motivated.

Today’s decision by Judge Salim Joubran, the first Arab to receive a permanent spot on the Israel Supreme Court, overturns the previous appeal granted by Jerusalem District Court Judge Bentzion Greenberger.

In his ruling Judge Joubran stated that there is sufficient evidence against Shuchat, currently a resident of Lod, to justify the requirements for extradition.

“The defendant’s version of the incident and all that transpired will be heard by a court in New York, which will hear the case and make the necessary determinations,” said Joubran.

In a rare move, District Attorney Charles Hynes convened a grand jury to investigate the incident, back in 2008 and according to reports on 1010 WINS, compared the Shmira patrol to a street gang.  If convicted, Shuchat could face up to fifteen years in prison.

What did you expect from an arab judge.
The fault though lies in Israeli political correctness nonsense, where they want to play Mr. nice guy and give an arab a position as a judge. What stupidity, the UN and the rest of the world will condemn you anyway so why bother going out of your way and give such a responsible position as a judge, to an arab, so he can judge Jews.
How moronic.
It's not just the world condeming Israel each time she takes a breath, it's also Israel condeming itself with such utter stupidity.

Charles Hynes has failed miserably on the abuse issue, sadly certain leaders in the Frum community are as guilty as him.

With that said lately he's trying to carve out a legacy for himself, because he's fearful of actually having to fight for whats usually an easy reelection.

So he's been appealing to all communities with high profile prosecutions.

He's played Satmar VS each other, and he's done that with Chabad, by over blowing the 749 incident, and now with the Shuchat case he's trying to bring us back to 1991 in order to look like a super hero.

There's no question that Shuchat would be found NOT GUILTY the serious danger would be with his CH"V pre trial incarceration.

This is clearly a politically motivated move, through and through. It is obvious that he is being made a scapegoat. Charles Hynes, J'accuse!

He just upheld a lower court ruling don't make more than it is. and we all know every case of a yid being accused of a crime is made up or even if guilty a yid does not belong in jail.

It is really incredible. how biased and racially motivated the commentators of this board are. The assumption you make is that Every Frum Jew is perfect- actually beyond perfect. They do not commit crimes, they don't embezzle, they are not murderers, they are not pedophiles they do not cheat and steal. After all who could do such things when they put on Tefillin every more and scrupulously follow their Rebbe's instructions to the ultimate degree. Since you feel like that it is only natural that any Jew who is being prosecuted is actually a victim of anti-semetism and especially anti-frumness. Rabbi Bergnman never did those things to the people who lived in his nursing homes, after all he is a Rabbi no less.And the butcher of Boro park did not assault and dismember a Jewish Child..He is of course a victim of mistaken identity and they are going to out him away simply becuase is he Jewish.

The real problem is that we do commit crimes and we are ashamed as a kehila when we are caught. Why? becuase the human who comprise the Frum Jewish communities act like Tzaddicks and daven and give tzdeka and yet they violate the very essence of what it is to be jewish- Grow up all of you

Hmmm. You write, "The fault though lies in Israeli political correctness nonsense, where they want to play Mr. nice guy and give an Arab a position as a judge."
Sounds a lot like a Nazi saying in 1935 to fellow Germans, "we should not give a Jew a position as...[fill in the blank]." The hatred, racism and ignorant small-mindedness of the frum oilam is probably the main reason most non-frum Jews run from Torah like it's poison and why non-Jews can only look at us and say, "THESE PEOPLE are supposed to be the light unto the nations? They're as bigoted and and hate-filled as the anti-Semites thery're always screaming about."

why can you trust an arab judge to make the right decision for a jew ? you call this the same as Nazis not allowing Jews with certain positions? how can you compare after reading how the daughter of our enemies was treated in israeli hospital like any other injured child. how dare you to compare them and us on the same level. we wouldn't take advantage of our position to make anyone suffer.

secondly, TO NUMBER 7, these commentators happen to know the story. no one is saying he is not guilty bec. he is a yid. THEY KNOW THE STORY!!!

I'm not sure that's worse than the commentators here who always assume assume any frum yid accused of any crime is always guilty (and then some) without knowing the most basic facts of the case.

You're proving by your remarks just how true were the sane posters above who said a lot of frum Jews are racist and bigoted. Yes, the PLO and Hamas are terrorist groups, but not every Palestinian is PLO or Hamas. And many Palestinians, even those who want a state, do not accept terroristic methods. But to you, every Arab is a terrorist. There is no such thing as individuality with people like you -- all Yidden are good, all goyim -- especially Arabs -- are bad, if not subhuman. It must be hard going through life with that kind of anti-Torah view. I'm telling you, the hate and negativity simply oozes off of all too many frim Yidden. And don't come back at me with "Eisav sinah l'Yaakov. Until very recently that was understood as Eisav the man hating Yaakov the man (and some rabbis extended it as a metaphor for those who followed in Eisav's path), not every non-Jew hating every Jew.
