Dr Zernik is a Human Rights and social protest activist, recognized for his unique application of data-mining and IT system analysis in Human Rights.
Dr Zernik's reports in the area of IT systems and Human Rights 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 and discrimination by law enforcement in California";
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", and
The United States (2015) with the note: "HRA NGO recommended restoring the integrity of the IT systems of the courts, under accountability to the Congress, with the goal of making such systems as transparent as possible to the public at large."
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:
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.
A series of Dr Zernik's reports was published by Wikileaks prior to the 2016 US presidential election under the Podesta Archive.
Dr Zernik has been permit holder for the Occupy Tel-Aviv camp, where he has resided since 2012. With it, Dr Zernik has also become the subject of various art and documentary works in recent years.

[Video] The specter of a revolution is haunting Israel
Growing signs of collapse of the legitimacy of all three branches of government -- an ongoing constitutional crisis in a nation with no constitution. IDF remains the one institution that still generates high levels of trust and support.
[Videos] Israeli Supreme Court hacked
Most of the day on Sunday, the Supreme Court's "Calendar of the Court" showed a collection of videos about corruption of the courts and the legal profession and in support of the anti-corruption protest movement.
ISRAEL: Facebook censors the US Constitution
Social protest is surging in Israel, and the internet is increasingly perceived by Israeli authorities as a threat. In response - the authorities increasingly abuse Freedom of Speech, at times reaching absurd levels. Arabs are often arrested for what are deemed offensive posts, Jews are typically only blocked. In a case today - Facebook blocked a comment, which was a direct quote of the 13th Amendment to the US Constitution Series: ISRAEL - transformation of the regime (2 Articles, 2618 views)
The remedy for Israeli government corruption? Gag orders!
The scope of the corruption is nothing less than an earthquake in Israeli public affairs. "Netanyahu's indictment is inevitable." While media and the ruling class are privy to the details, courts issue gag orders to keep the public in the dark.
E-government in Israel -- transformation into the Post-truth Era
Implementation of new fraudulent e-government systems in all branches of government over the past 15-20 years amounts to unannounced regime change. The process is correlated with unprecedented corruption of government in Israel. The latest phase has also included usurpation of power by Prime Minister Netanyahu, who established under his control a "Cyber Authority" with no foundation in the law.
Shin-Bet implicates the Central Election Committee in serious computer fraud
One is hard pressed to find a reasonable explanation, except for serious fraud, for conduct of three officers of the Central Election Committee, who stated that the Shin-Bet examined and certified the Committee's IT systems. The Shin-Bet response, which adamantly denied such claims, also implicates a series of Supreme Court justices, who chaired the Committee...

ISRAEL: [Video] Arrested for singing in the rain...
PM Netanyahu,wife, son are under a string of criminal corruption investigations. His hand-picked Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit does anything possible to undermine the investigations. Police and the Shin-Bet have been going out of their way in recent weeks to prevent protests.

Police violence on Christmas Eve in Tel-Aviv
Only a few months ago, former Justice Minister, Law Prof Daniel Friedman said: "The Attorney General cannot shut the mouths of the entire nation..." Well, it appears that Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit is working at it -- no holds barred. On such matters Voltaire said: "To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize".

Trump, Podesta, Wikileaks and me -- an existential crisis
Yesterday morning I discovered that a series of my short reports,most of which were first published in OpEdNews.com, on government, banking, court corruption in the US and Israel found their way into Podesta's email, from there to Wikileaks, and even to the Trump campaign... Great! But what next?
ISRAEL: Computer election fraud in the only digital banana republic in the middle-east?
Netanyahu's reelection in 2015 defied all up to the last minute statisticians' predictions. Recent publications and court filing allege massive election fraud through IT systems of the Central Election Commission. Over the past weekend -- data on the Commission's web site was inexplicably adulterated. Head of the government new Cyber Security Research Center refuses to comment...

Deep State is not so deep in Israel -- Shin-Bet, Mossad, and the baby-stealing scandal
Following a new wave of protest by Yemenite Jews, the Israeli government appointed Minister without Portfolio Tzachi Hanegbi, of Yemenite background himself, to investigate allegations of baby-stealing by state welfare and medical agencies in the 1950s. Following his appointment, Hanegbi proudly announced that he had also obtained approval for the investigation from Shin-Bet and Mossad"
Israel: anti-judicial corruption protester placed under compulsory psychiatric hospitalization
Joelle Ben Simone protested corruption of the family courts in front of the office of Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, demanding to speak with the Minister. Finally, Minister Shaked talked with her for a few minutes, resulting in Ben Simone's compulsory psychiatric hospitalization.

ISRAEL: Who is the Shin Bet loyal to?
With the piling up of criminal affairs, linked to Prime Minister Netanyahu and his family, the question is whether the Shin-Bet is charged only with securing senior politicians, or also securing the nation against its senior politicians... In the US similar questions were answered already in the 1950s, in Eisenhower's Farewell Address...

ROMAN ZADOROV - the Israeli Mendel Beilis
"Roman Zadorov's case reflects widespread incompetence and/or corruption of the Israeli justice system, including its highest echelons, to a level that would be recognized in criminology as 'Organized State Crime'." The imprisonment of Ukrainian Zadorov by the Jewish state is a tragic mirror image of the notorious Mendel Beilis affair in the Ukraine a century ago.

US DHS assists in suppression of anti-corruption dissent in Israel
Israeli judges retaliate against anti court corruption activists by unlawful, fraudulent use of their authority. US DHC/ICE colludes with them, and Google is a major partner. Spying, unreasonable detentions, unlawful search and seizure of computers, and draconian fake judgments - retaliation produces some of the best evidence of judicial corruption. Conditions in the US are similar.
Warrantless imprisonment of former Israeli PM Ehud Olmert
Olmert was deeply immersed in corruption, like many in the top echelons of Israeli government today. However, the justice system in Israel today operates out of compliance with the fundamentals of due process, appearing as an arm of Netanyahu's efforts to consolidate his autocratic rule by a series of targeted prosecutions of his potential political opponents.
PALESTINE: Champagne in Kafr Duma! Cheers!
Does the Shin Bet aim to stop Jewish terror, or is the Shin Bet the perpetrator of Jewish terror, both in Israel and in Palestine? Is Israeli military rule in Palestine "apartheid", or is it a "reign of terror"? There is no chance that such circumstances could have continued for almost fifty years, absent staunch US backing...

Jewish Valentine's in Jerusalem
Stabbings by an ultra-orthodox fanatic of pride parade participants, assault of anti-banksters demonstrators by private goons, hired by tycoons... and the strange failure of the security forces of the total security state in both cases... Jerusalem under Israeli rule is far removed from what it was intended to be by international law as Corpus Separatum Jerusalem.

Bulldozers were already standing ready to demolish the tiny Bedouin village of Susya earlier this week. However, strong European pressure made the Israeli government re-think its actions. With the unfolding of the Eurasian Century, it appears more likely that a unified Chinese-European front would eventually force Israel to accept a free Palestine.

Suicide of commander Efraim Bracha and "collapse" of the Israel Police
Head of the National Fraud Investigations Unit Efraim Bracha committed suicide after a small online news outlet published reports of his corruption. As is the case in other nations, the United States included, widespread police corruption is impossible absent corruption of the justice system in general and the judiciary in particular

The Rabin assassination and government corruption in Israel
Over the past year the State of Israel has been rocked by never-ending corruption scandals, involving the highest levels of the justice and law enforcement systems.

When it comes to the First Amendment - Israel scores an "F"
The Tel-Aviv Magistrate Court issued last week an unprecedented "Restraining Order", which prohibits activist Barak Cohen from any speech, related to Bank HaPoalim CEO Zion Keinan. The order amounts to Prior Restraint of Free Speech... It comes in the footsteps of a series of gag orders, trying to prevent the publication of news regarding government corruption in general, and judicial corruption in particular...

Explosive corruption of the Israeli justice system is cured by gag orders...
News last week, that three judges were jailed in the latest corruption scandal, was immediately gagged by the Jerusalem court. As is the case in the United States, Prior Restraint of the press is prohibited by Israeli law, absent "clear and present danger". In practice, the courts routinely gag the press, in what is seen as a coordinated effort by the justice system to cover-up its own corruption.
The Kabbalist and AG Loretta Lynch
The Rabbi Josiah Pinto scandal is a gem of Israeli justice system corruption. The case involved the ouster of the head of "the Israeli FBI" in the midst of various high level government corruption investigations. Leaked AG Lynch letter and Israel Police investigation transcripts as well as a perverted, secretive court process indicate business as usual in the "only democracy in the middle-east".
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.

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.
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. Series: ISRAEL: Corruption of government and the justice system (17 Articles, 18893 views)

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.

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.
