Fake hate crime: Jewish owners of restaurant staged city’s ‘worst ever’ anti-Semitic hate-crime

On April 18, 2019, the BerMax Caffé on Corydon Avenue in Winnipeg, Canada, was robbed, a woman assaulted, and the restaurant’s interior trashed and the walls spray-painted with anti-Semitic graffiti.

At the time, Winnipeg police Constable Rob Carver told media the attack was one of the “worst” hate crimes he had seen as a police officer.

According to a CBC News report, at around 10:45 p.m. on April 18, Winnipeg police were called to BerMax Caffé and Bistro, where they found the restaurant “severly vandalized” and spray-painted with anti-Semitic graffiti. The place was almost entirely destroyed, with plates and glasses smashed to pieces, tables and chairs flipped over and other items scattered across the floor. A woman had been assaulted and was taken to hospital in stable condition, treated and released. A robbery might also have taken place.

Const. Carver told reporters at a news conference the next day that the same restaurant has been targeted with similar crimes four times in the past five months. A GoFundMe page was set up by Robbie Kfir Mulder-Kiesman to support the café after a previous incident last month.

Elaine Goldstine, chief executive officer of the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg, said previous incidents were limited to anti-Semitic graffiti, but this violent attack “has taken things to the next level. I just can’t fathom how or why people would want to do such a terrible act. We are horrified and saddended.” Goldstine noted that the attack on BerMax took place the evening before Passover, a major Jewish holiday.

Adam Levy, communications director of the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg, said: “We’re absolutely in awe to be honest, we’re in shock about this senseless act of hatred which has taken place in our own community, in our own backyard. It’s the most brazen act of anti-Semitism that we’ve seen in our community, and perhaps ever. We hope this is not a sign of things to come.”

But according to a new CBC News report on April 24, 2019, Winnipeg police now say the hate-crime had been staged by the Jewish owners of BerMax themselves. 

All three members of the family that owns BerMax Caffé and Bistro — Alexander Berent, 56, Oxana Berent, 48, and Maxim Berent, 29 — were arrested and charged with public mischief. They were released and are slated to appear in court in May.

Winnipeg police Chief Danny Smyth said the investigation has been a significant waste of police resources: “Over 25 officers have invested nearly 1,000 hours through a busy holiday weekend trying to bring this investigation to a close. The anti-Semitic graffiti and vandalism were also falsely reported as being done by outside suspects. In the end, we found evidence of a crime. It just wasn’t a hate crime.”

Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman called the alleged fabrication disgusting and said if the mischief charges are proven in court, the actions of the accused would represent a “breach of trust” in the community.

The Jewish Federation of Winnipeg said in a written statement: “We are shocked and deeply disturbed by today’s news. It is deplorable that anyone would make false allegations of anti-Semitism, especially claims of such a serious nature, for any kind of gain. False complaints of criminal acts of anti-Semitism are not only illegal, they undermine the important work necessary to counter anti-Semitism and hate in all forms. We reiterate our appreciation of the work of the Winnipeg Police Service and their continued support for the Jewish community.”

But the Berents insist they didn’t fake anything.

In a tearful interview with Ismaila Alfa, host of CBC Manitoba’s afternoon radio show, Up to Speed, Oxana Berent denied faking the hate-crime and that she would never invent a story about an anti-Semitic crime because of her family’s experiences: “We didn’t, because we don’t joke about swastikas on our walls. My grandmother’s family, they died in the Holocaust. Just her and her little brother survived, the whole family. We don’t joke about that.”

When they start waving the holocaust you know they’re lying. But they don’t joke about swastika’s, certainly not. Someone should tell them that, apart from the fake controlled-opposition alt-right, swastika’s went out with saddle shoes. When you’re a member of the Tribe, even fake hate crimes are real. Just ask Jussie. How will this end? They’ll collect the insurance money and move to Florida

And notice how she conflated joking about the holocaust with creating false evidence of a hate crime. No one suggested that the staging of an attack was a joke; she’s trying to deflect attention by using a straw man narrative.

“Anti-Semitism will be a psychological phenomenon as long as Jews come in contact with non-Jews–what harm can there be in that? Perhaps it is due to anti-Semitism that we survive as a race: at least that is what I believe.”

Brings the thought of the old term “Jewish Lightning” to mind. Was Jussie anywhere near the place??

Re: Jewish lightning. Three old Jewish guys were sitting around talking. The first one said, “I had a hardware store in Brooklyn. One day there was a terrible fire. We took the insurance money and moved to Florida.” The second one said, “I had a little clothing store in Albany. One day there was a terrible fire. We took the insurance money and moved to Florida.” The third one said, “I had a little deli in Rochester. One day there was a terrible flood. We took the insurance money and moved to Florida.” The first two looked at him curiously.… Read more »

For the police to come out and state that this was staged by the restaurant owners themselves, we can be sure they have proof. Nobody would take a chance on making that statement if there was any doubt about what happened with such a protected group.

You would think so. There’s got to be some video (if not at the direct location) then around and they can see who was coming/going.

The very fact that we are experiencing increasingly frequent, and more severe staged anti-Semitism hoaxes is just unbelievable. It is difficult at best to understand why Jewish people would wish to perpetrate this kind of fraud on the population as a whole–it makes the rest of us doubt the validity of these crimes in general.

They’ve been involved with this kind of stuff for a long time- it’s not just recent Auntie. I remember reading about 20 years ago how some supposed NAZI’s in the country were actually Jews. They have to keep the victim racket going you know. Even the Charlottesville debacle was organized by someone named Jason Kessler who seems to have a dubious background going from a leftist activist only one year earlier to Unite the Right rally. Kessler is often a Jewish name, though I can’t personally say whether he is or not. But the point being, those that are obsessed… Read more »

The (Ashke)”nazi” who organized the infamous march on Skokie Illinois was a jew named Frank Collin.

Just call me Hard Hearted, but I have grown more than weary of Jewish people having the audacity of pulling this kind of hoax on the rest of us. Unfortunately, I think that many other people would agree. Just as you have stated, the use of these kinds of incidents “to demonize those they consider their foes,” will back fire when it is learned that Jewish people perpetrated the whole affair. I cannot see where this helps them to any degree.

It has in the past as they have been expelled kicked out of hundreds of countries/civilizations in the past.

Yeah, they’re desecrating Christian churches on a daily basis and all we get are “crickets”. Just let the slightest hint of anti-Jew bias show up and huge crowds line up to do abeyance.

People are morons. That’s why it works so well for them.

“BerMax Caffe and Bistro”. I thought Cafe only had one “f”. I guess the extra one makes it “edgy”

Think of how much energy the Book of Psalms places on the trouble brought by liars.

I was thinking along the same lines as Watertender.

The Berents should hire Jussie Smollett’s lawyers, and have C(r)ook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx later drop all charges against them.

Alexander & Maxim Berent could pretend they’re Jewish rednecks paid to trash the store.✡

Where they screwed up, is not pouring bleach from a hot sauce bottle all over themselves ?

Just like the Just Smellit fiasco, this is a test: Will we sit still for this or not?

The answer to the question will determine our future.

Multiply these actions by the amount of ‘hate crimes’ in the entire world, and you now see who has been behind every single one of them. There is NOT one Jew in the world who actually speaks, reads, or writes in Early Semitic Ancient Hebrew, they don’t have a clue of their heritage, and they HATE the entire world for that reason. These people use ‘block Hebrew'(an abomination of the superior language), incessantly identify as White, and will NEVER learn the Facts. From very personal experience, these people would much rather cause murder and mayhem, proving beyond the shadow of… Read more »

Actually , the hard core of the Nazi regime was comprised of … Jews … ( and half-jews ) !!! Eichmann , the ” architect ” was one of them , and he bragged that there were ” more than a 100 ” pure Jews ” within the SS to do the dirty work … Propaganda minister Goebbels was nicknamed ” the Rabbi ” by schoolmates as was SS Führer Reinhart Heydrich , while Himmler was ” only ” of Jewish mother …Milch , head of the Luftwaffe etc … The ” Guru ” of Nazi racial ideology … Alfred… Read more »

It’s stuff like this that make you think and wonder why we let these people stay on the US, let alone live? We’re too bound to our beliefs and principles to even go through with the death penalty on these people. Which, as much as I dislike saying this, got me thinking of a religious reference: The Farmer and the Viper. The farmer picked up a viper because it was cold. Once the farmer took the viper to the farm, the viper, rejuvenated by the warmth, went to the farmer and killed him with its venomous bite. Jesus called the… Read more »
