FBI raids Haredi yeshivas involved in fraud

A yeshiva in New York was searched by the FBI along with their technology vendors for committing fraud:
The FBI raided haredi Orthodox yeshivas and technology vendors that serve them in Brooklyn and in New York’s Rockland County, but declined to state publicly the details of the investigations.

In a large operation Wednesday afternoon, dozens of FBI agents, search warrants in hand, entered multiple yeshivas and vendors’ offices in Rockland County, demanding they account for technology purchases for which they billed the federal government, according to The Journal News. Agents were seen walking out with boxes of documents and computer hard drives.

The FBI confirmed to JTA that it also searched a handful of yeshivas in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn Wednesday afternoon. Those included two locations of Bais Ruchel d’Satmar, a girls school affiliated with the Satmar Hasidic sect and possibly one location that was not a school.

The raids in Rockland are believed to be part of a larger investigation of fraud in the federal government’s E-rate program, which funds the purchase of technology equipment and Internet service by schools and libraries. A 2013 investigative report in the New York Jewish Week (co-written by this reporter) found that haredi Orthodox yeshivas, particularly Hasidic ones, in Rockland County and Brooklyn disproportionately benefit from the program even though few offer their students or teachers Internet access.
The hypocrisy of the Satmar and their ilk is clearly on display, as they order their subjects to avoid internet usage, yet the overlords make as much use of it as they like, for the sake of swindling. They've basically violated the Commandment against stealing, and demonstrate why welfare handouts they receive should be revoked.
