Ohio man convicted of hate crime in beating of victim he thought was Jewish
[IsraelTimes] Izmir Koch, along with others, was heard shouting ’I want to kill all the Jews’ in 2017 assault; could face up to 10 years in prison

An Ohio man was convicted of a hate crime for attacking a man he thought was Jewish.

Izmir Koch, 33, of Huber Heights, was found guilty by a judge for his part in the assault of a man smoking a cigarette outside a local restaurant on February 4, 2017.

Koch asked people standing outside the restaurant if anyone there was Jewish. When the victim responded in the affirmative, although he was not actually Jewish, Koch allegedly punched him, knocking him to the ground. Koch then continued to hit and kick him, as did others standing outside the restaurant.

The victim suffered injuries to his ribs and a fracture of the orbital floor, the bottom portion of his eye socket.

Before and during the assault, Koch and the other assailants were heard shouting, "I want to kill all of the Jews" and "I want to stab the Jews," according to the Department of Justice.

A hate crime charge is punishable by up to 10 years in prison, the local ABC affiliate WLWT reported.
Even the Jewish Telegraph Agency has taken to leaving out key information, presumably lest it be accused of the dreaded “racism”. Back in March, Daniel Greenfield laid it all out in an article for Front Page Magazine:
The worst anti-Semitic hate crime of 2018 took place outside a restaurant in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Izmir Koch, an Ahiska Ottoman Turkish migrant who had already been in trouble with the law, allegedly demanded to know if there were any Jews around. A man who been at the restaurant replied that he was Jewish. Izmir punched him in the head, and then kicked him while he lay on the ground.

The victim, who wasn’t actually Jewish, suffered bruised ribs and a fractured eye socket.

Now a federal grand jury has indicted Izmir for committing a hate crime. The violent assault was the single worst anti-Semitic hate crime of 2018. So far. And it’s generated very little interest from the same activists and media outlets who had been accusing the White House of not acting against anti-Semitism.

Izmir had already been facing two counts of felonious assault, one involving a deadly weapon, from 2016. He was found guilty a month after the Cincinnati assault, along with a number of comrades and family members. That assault had taken place outside their trucking company in Dayton, Ohio.

A former employee had come to collect the money that he was owed, and Izmir Koch, Baris Koch, Sevil Shakhmanov and Mustafa Shakhmanov allegedly assaulted him with crowbars, and possibly brass knuckles and a baseball bat. The victim, who apparently had a knife, fought back.

Izmir, Boris and Murad were Ottoman Turkish Moslems from the former Soviet Union who had migrated to this country. A few years before that fight, the local media was talking up their "positive impact" on the community in Dayton. But it didn’t take long for the legal problems to begin. The benefits of bringing these Ottoman Turkish Moslems to Dayton were quickly outweighed by the violence they had brought.

The Cincinnati assault is one of the most physically violent recent anti-Semitic attacks. But the perpetrator is a Moslem immigrant and the alphabet soup organizations don’t want to talk about it.

It doesn’t fit their profile or their agenda.

News stories about the Cincinnati attack don’t mention that the perpetrator is a Moslem immigrant. "Give me your violent, your bigoted, your anti-Semitic masses yearning to kill," doesn’t sound as good.

Lefty Jewish organizations spend all their time forming alliances to support Moslem immigrants colonists against President Trump. Meanwhile the DOJ is fighting the anti-Semitism that they refuse to fight.
And Heavy.com adds a few more interesting facts:
Koch, speaking in Russian, loudly asked if anyone outside the restaurant was Jewish. A Lithuanian man who spoke Russian replied that he was Jewish.

Koch and the victim apparently had some mutual friends. They were both part of Cincinnati’s Russian-speaking community, a normally peaceful community which includes both Jews and Muslims from Turkey, Russia, and Uzbekistan.
Except that the Koch bunch are habitual thugs.
Witnesses told a judge back in November that people in the community generally respect one another’s religious differences. Many had immigrated to the US to avoid ethnic persecution.

The victim in the case was originally from Lithuania, but also spoke Russian. It wasn’t clear hy he said that he was Jewish when, in fact, he later told prosecutors that he wasn’t. The victim actually withdrew his initial police report a few weeks after the attack, because, he said, “everybody had been drinking.”

#1 The victim actually withdrew his initial police report a few weeks after the attack, because, he said, “everybody had been drinking.”

Drinking or not, that makes the victim even dumber than Izmir.

#2 A crime was perpetrated and should be prosecuted despite the victim withdrawing his complaint. Often the state acts on behalf of the victim of a crime if evidence shows there was a crime. Criminals aren't always the brightest bulbs in the box.
