  1. 1
    Goldstein was an American born-Israeli physician and mass murderer who was responsible for the 1994 Cave of the Patriarchs massacre in Hebron. He killed 29 Muslims praying there and wounded an incredible 125. He believed that these Arabs were attempting to kill Jews, and thus, according to Ian Lustick, “Was reenacting part of the Purim Story.” Goldstein was overcome and beaten to death by the survivors. Goldstein’s grave site turned into a shrine for Jewish extremists. The shrine was destroyed by the IDF under a law banning shrines to terrorists. Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin called Yasser Arafat, a notorious Palestinian terrorist, and apologized that the mass murder had taken place. Many people still love Goldstein, even though he is the worst Jew of all time. Goldstein was widely described as a psychopath after the massacre.

    Okay, strictly speaking he was a satanist, but because he was born Jewish, I have included him on this list. Berkowitz was one of the most famous serial killers and arsonists in the USA. He killed six people and wounded many from 1976 until his capture in 1977. When asked why he committed these acts, he said that he was being commanded by a demonic dog belonging to his neighbor. He is still alive, and is currently living in prison. He was nicknamed “The Son of Sam Killer.” However, easily the creepiest aspect of this man is a quote of his: “There are other Sons out there, God help the world.”

  3. 3
    The worst mobster on this list, Buchalter was a true psychopath. He was the head of Murder, Inc., a mafia organization that was made up of hitmen. Murder, Inc. assassins once gunned down a New York businessman named Joseph Rosen. Another more infamous instance was when Dutch Schultz, another Jewish-American mobster, asked The Commission to kill Dutch’s enemy, prosecutor Thomas E. Dewey. The Commission decided to kill Shultz instead, to prevent the assassination. Buchalter had the immigrant Albert Anastasia kill Shultz. The murder of Rosen, however, proved essential to Buchalter’s downfall. He was indicted of the murder, which was caused when Rosen failed to leave town, and was executed in 1944 by electric chair.

  4. 4
    Lansky was a Russian-born American Mobster, known as the “Mob’s Accountant,” he was one of the most powerful men in the USA back then and was important in the creation of Las Vegas. Now, after WWII,in Cuba, a dictator, Fulgecio Batista, offered Lansky the control of all of Havana’s racetracks and casinos. Lansky became the center of gambling operations in Cuba. In 1946, the Havana Conference was held. Notable mobsters attended, including Joseph Bonanno, Frank Costello,and Vito Genovese. Representing the Jewish interest, was who else but Meyer Lansky. Lansky made millions from Cuba, until 1959, the year of the Cuban Revolution. Fidel Castro got rid of Lansky, in one of the few good things Communism has ever done. After an escape to Miami Beach, he attempted to leave to Israel. He was caught by the Israeli Government and sent to the USA. However, the USA failed to convict him, and he died in 1983.

    Nicolai Bonner was born in Moldovia to non-Jewish parents, but was allowed to go to Israel, under the Law Of Return, because his wife was Jewish. He became the first Israeli serial killer, and his victims were all immigrants from the USSR, three of them homeless, and all were beaten, then there bodies were set on fire to hide evidence. In 2007, he was sentenced to life imprisonment, for attempted murder, rape, assault, and interfering with judicial proceedings. He is currently in Israel, serving out his sentence.
