  1. This was covered tonight in Israeli TV –

    It seems like the motivation might have been US students attempting to postpone exams, paying this guy in Bitcoin, and then him making threats which led to a cancelled school day. At least per channel2.

    As for his identity – It might be temporary, it might be due to some of the crimes done as a minor (not sure about this one), or possibly his mental issues (reading between the lines – he might be on the spectrum). All of these can lead to permanent or temporary court orders protecting his name.

    As for extradition – It’s an interesting question. Even if tried in the US, they’ll probably have him serve time in an Israeli jail. Jurisdiction here is complex as the crime was performed (via cyberspace / telecom) from Israel to the US.
