Dr Zernik has gained substantial experience in recent years in analyzing banking, courts, and prisons IT systems. Such research documented the important role that large-scale fraud in such systems plays in the current financial crisis and in abuse of Human Rights by governments in California, in the US, and in Israel.[i] His reports (submitted under Human Rights Alert, NGO) in these areas were incorporated into Universal Periodic Review reports of the United Nations Human Rights Council regarding the United States (2010), with the note, "corruption of the courts and the legal profession in California", and regarding the State of Israel (2013) with the note, "lack of integrity in the electronic records of the supreme court, the district courts and the detainees courts in Israel".
A textbook on "Machine Learning" found Dr Zernik's application of data-mining to Human Rights research among "Notable uses", and summarized it as follows: [ii]
Data mining of government records - particularly records of the justice system (i.e., courts, prisons) - enables the discovery of systemic human rights violations in connection to generation and publication of invalid or fraudulent legal records by various government agencies. [iii,iv]
Dr Zernik also authored numerous peer-reviewed papers in scientific academic journals, and in Israeli and US news media on subjects ranging from politics to literature.
In recent years Dr Zernik has been active in the US and Israeli Social Protest movements. As part of civil disobedience activity, Dr Zernik filed a number of petitions in key courts in the US and Israel, challenging the integrity of such courts.
Today Dr Zernik is a permit holder for the Occupy Tel-Aviv camp.

Tuesday, December 23, 2014 Los Angeles, the Jewish community, the legal profession, and the financial crisis
Request for compensation, filed today with Bet Tzedek, the Los Angeles "House of Justice", one of the highest visibility institutions of the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, provided evidence that the charity, priding itself as "one of the nation's premier poverty law centers" was a hub of racketeering by Countrywide's Chief Legal Officer Sandor Samuels for almost a decade.
Tuesday, November 18, 2014 ISRAEL: Shin-Bet v IDF - "Armageddon"
In Israel, as is the case in the United States, the lawful structure of representative government has long been replaced by a "Deep State" apparatus with remarkably similar results: Military aggression as the mode of operation in international affairs, and Robber Baron Era style domestic policies, leading to unchecked power of the banking system and rapid increase in poverty.
Thursday, October 9, 2014 Hannibal protocol, Yeshayahu Leibowitz, and the Jewish state
Events of the latest round of violence in Gaza would likely lead an outsider to conclude that the segment of the Jewish-Israeli public, which was self-characterized in the past as "Religious-National", is today closer to "Nationalist", or even "Totalitarian" in its values and practices, and increasingly divorced from "Jewish". That of course is not the view of those involved, who consider themselves soldiers of the Lord.
Sunday, October 5, 2014 Urgent international petition launched, to stop actions against homeless, OccupyTel-Aviv
We the undersigned, join celebrated author Sami Michael and the Israeli Association for Civil Rights, calling upon you to delay any actions against the homeless in the OccupyTLV camp, and to exapnd the area, now being walled, which unreasonably restricts the ability to accommodate all the people already living in the camp.
The city should provide some living options also for the poor and the homeless, not only for the rich!
Monday, September 29, 2014 Large-scale fraud in IT systems of US courts - unannounced regime change
Wide segments of the people of the United States today hold that the US Constitution was voided. The implementation of invalid fraudulent IT systems in the US courts was a key event in establishing current conditions. It is corruption, which was centrally implemented throughout the court system. The current regime engages in robbing the people in collusion with financial institutions and large corporations.

ARGENTINA: Again on the verge of economic collapse - again the victim of US treachery!
The idea that a US court holds the authority to adjudicate a case between the Argentinian government and US financial institutions, and thereby cause the collapse of the Argentinian economy, is ludicrous, particularly since US courts today are widely recognized as the most corrupt in US history, particularly in matters pertaining to banking! Over the past decade, the State of Israel has been moving along similar paths...

Friday, May 16, 2014 OccupyTLV: Tel Aviv Police Commander suspects criminality by police in the camp
As is the case in the United States, the Israel police are engaged in unlawful efforts to undermine legitimate political opposition to the current government, and attempts to criminalize civil-society activists and whistleblowers. Israel has experienced a profound socio-economic transformation since the 1995 Rabin assassination, with the establishment of a US-style neoconservative regime with matching consequences.

Wednesday, March 12, 2014 Israel: Supreme Court Presiding Justice Asher Grunis refuses to explain the appointment of new "Chief Clerk"...
Recently, the website of the Israeli Supreme Court started noting Ms Meloul as “Chief Clerk” with no formal published notice of her appointment. Presiding Justice Grunis has also refused to address the appointment at all, while Israeli media black out the entire affair. Conditions in the Israeli courts mimic similar fraud, implemented in the electronic-record systems of the US federal courts a decade or two earlier.
Thursday, February 27, 2014 ISRAEL: War hero Moti Ashkenazi+76 others versus the medieval debtors' courts
Israel has adopted the US-style foreclosure-fraud crisis, only on a bigger scale. By estimate, half of the people of the State of Israel are currently under process in medieval debtors' courts, patronized by the Israeli Supreme Court. Conditions in the Israeli justice system amount to state organized crime, perpetrated by banks, attorneys, and judges. Presiding Justice Asher Grunis must resign!

Corpus Separatum Jerusalem and the middle-east peace process
The evolution of Corpus Separatum Jerusalem as a place of free speech and preservation of human knowledge, in an age of looming darkness, would become one of the greatest achievements of mankind and the Abrahamic religions, like the truths of the prophets.

Saturday, January 11, 2014 Los Angeles Sheriff Lee Baca steps down!
Lee Baca is only a small part of the corruption in Los Angeles County. The people of Los Angeles County should not be fooled to believe that the federal government has any intention of protecting their Human, Constitutional, and Civil Rights. The core of the corruption in Los Angeles County is in the corrupt judges of the Los Angeles Superior Court.
Monday, January 6, 2014 Duplicitous US judges: Jed Rakoff, Richard Leon
From his chambers in New York City, Jed Rakoff is a central figure in undermining US banking regulation, and Richard Leon in DC -- in undermining civil rights. With help from media, both cultivate a diametrically opposite image. And in Israel -- under the tenure of former Supreme Court Presiding Justice Aharon Barak, the courts were corrupted in an unprecedented manner.

ISRAEL: Large-scale Fraud in the Supreme Court's Office of the Clerk
A court, which operates with no lawful office of the clerk, is an incompetent court. The evidence shows that starting in 2002, the Israeli Supreme Court operates with a sham Office of the Clerk. The fraud in appearance of Attorney Ben Tovim as "Head of Pro Se Section" in the Israeli Supreme Court has a close parallel in the conduct of "Court Counsel" Danny Bickell in the US Supreme Court.

ISRAEL: Senior law professors are asked to affect lawful appointment of Chief Clerk for the Supreme Court
"Chief Clerk" Sarah Lifschitz, who falsely appeared in that title for over 10 years, resigned as of October 31, 2013. Today's letter to the law professors voiced the concern that the Bar's failure to take action in this matter, which is central to integrity of the justice system, should lead to the opinion of "corruption of the legal profession in Israel" under reasonable international review standards.

A paper, detailing large-scale fraud in the electronic records of the court of the State of Israel was accepted for publication in an international computer science journal, following two cycles of anonymous peer-review by international computer-science academic scholars. The facts, detailed in the paper, should be deemed equivalent to an unannounced regime change in the State of Israel over the past decade.
