Convicted Child Molester Sues Monsey Rabbi For Comparing Him To ‘Terrorist’

A convicted sex offender sued a New York rabbi for 200,000 shekels after the anti-abuse activist tweeted a warning to parents in a Jerusalem suburb when the pedophile moved there, a report said.

Yona Weinberg, 37, did a year in jail after he was convicted of molesting two 13-year-old boys in 2008, then went to Israel last year before he could be arrested over allegations he assaulted an 11-year-old boy, records state.

Rabbi Yakov Horowitz of upstate Monsey then tweeted in January that parents in the Jerusalem suburb of Har Nof should be careful around Weinberg and that he was as dangerous to kids as “a terrorist with a machete.”

Weinberg sued Horowitz for slander in an Israeli court for the equivalent of about $55,000, an ­Israel paper reported.
