Who was anti-terror agent NYPD Det. Mordecai Zev Dzikansky z”l? By Adina Kutnicki, Israel National News


It is with a broken heart and deep sadness that this writer announces the sudden death of a loving brother, Mordecai Zev Dzikansky, z”l, a/k/a Morty, NYPD Homicide Detective, First Grade (Thursday, March 17, 2022, 14 Adar II).

Dubbed ‘Terrorist Cop‘, his heroic and life-saving missions spanned the globe. They ranged from NYC; to Israel; to Russia; to Spain; to Turkey; to Egypt, and beyond. Basically, wherever Islamic jihad reared its head and exploded, Detective Dzikansky, z”l, was called upon to gather Intel and relay it back, post haste, to former NYPD Police Commissioner Kelly, as well as to former Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism, David Cohen, and John Miller, current Commissioner. A synopsis of said heroism was featured at Arutz Sheva, Israel National News, 12/21/21 – used as a piggy-back article, as requested, to the recent rise of another Jewish cop who climbed the ranks of the NYPD to an integral position. No doubt, my brother was a trailblazer.

Officially posted to Israel for several years (2003-2007), he was the “eyes and ears” of the NYPD – after the horrific attacks on September 11, 2001 rocked America and the western world. Due to his stellar ability to quietly gather Intel and navigate within this most dangerous and murky jihadi cesspool, former Police Commissioner Ray Kelly entrusted him with the most highly classified and sensitive assignments. Its main thrust involved analyzing and relaying back active intelligence (in whatever stage of planning uncovered) at warp speed, that is, in order to thwart impending attacks within NYC.

At times, within this and that investigation, active knock-on blows were being prepped for another U.S. city, and, by happenstance, they came into focus. Of course, the proper agencies were immediately notified. Simply, he was on 24/7 call and never failed to deliver. In all honestly, not many can lay claim to said prowess in their respective careers.

Alongside this twisted terrain, time and again, U.S. media got wind of “ready to blow” attacks. For instance:

– https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2005/07/25/the-terrorism-beat

– https://www.esquire.com/news-politics/a451/esq1004-oct-terror/

With too many others to cite, of note, was a featured interview on the widely viewed and highly respected “60 Minutes, Ed Bradley reports”, New York (N.Y.). Police Department — Planning.Terrorism — New York (State) — New York — Prevention..

In tandem, he became an integral part of the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism (ICT Herzliya), a world-class, respected think tank. His part can be accessed here. And due to the continuously shifting sands within the arena of counterterrorism, the following is worth mentioning: In 2009, Detective Dzikansky, z”l, contributed (with the vetting and approval of NYPD higher-ups) to a major policy paper housed at the Russian Academy of Sciences, ‎National Academy of Sciences, ‎Policy and Global Affairs – Countering Terrorism: Biological Agents, Transportation … – Page 9 Tellingly, the netherworld he was enmeshed with is never as it seems.

In the spring of 2005, he was honored (during his posting to Israel) for his unsung heroism in keeping the city safe after 9/11. Held at One Police Plaza, former NYPD Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, alongside former Mayor Bloomberg – with a dais filled with the city’s top leadership – spoke glowingly before an “invite only” audience (with a lovely luncheon that followed) of the many ways in which Detective Morty Dzikansky, z”l, secured the city. Citation upon citation was bestowed. At its base, they wanted to thank him properly for his unprecedented achievements. As his sibling, I felt enormous sisterly pride. As such, along the way to his meteoric rise within the ranks of the NYPD, a few pictures are attached below.

Most recently, when jihad erupted in Coleyville, Texas, no sooner did counterterrorism contacts reach out at this end for this and that, he weighed in with his valued perspective. As always, solicited or not, he gave me much food for thought, and it was reflected within the final analysis. It can be accessed here.

And in a way that only siblings can relate, he thought it was a real hoot that his delicate looking, 5’3 inch sister became steeped in some of the same jihadi muck, teasing, that I “followed” in his 6’3 inch footsteps. Maybe, maybe not. But regardless of “who followed whom”, aside from an already tight sibling bond, as adults, we had much in common due to our professional pursuits.

He leaves behind a devoted and heartbroken wife of 30 years; 3 children he affectionately (and often) referred to as his “crowning achievement” (most recently, upon starting their service in the IDF); 3 sisters who “mothered/smothered” him till the end; close extended family (most especially, nephews and nieces he doted on … when growing up, he was always ready to be the fun, often outrageous, “Uncle Morty”); countless long-held friends, and, in no small measure, colleagues and “brothers and sisters in blue.” Throughout his 25-year illustrious career in the dangerous world of policing and counterterrorism, their brotherhood was unbreakable. Over the years, he relayed hair-raising stories of how they (literally) had each other’s backs – be it via one hell-scape or another, including, chasing down serial killers one week, or, the next, shadowing Russian and Israeli drug lords running amok throughout the five boroughs.

On a personal level, as his sibling, the hole left in this heart from his passing can never be filled. While many relationships come and go throughout the years, and whatever the familial case may be, a sibling is forever. They are the ones who not only shared your childhood experiences, if lucky, kept your secrets, too. As it happens, my brother was pretty tight-lipped.

May the memory of Mordecai Zev Dzikansky, z”l, serve as a blessing to all those left behind. Finally, may he rest in peace – after all of the horrors he confronted in his lifetime.

He will forever be missed. Baruch Dayan Ha’Emet.



It is both impossible to ignore and to veer one’s eyes away from the destructive swathe which is criss-crossing throughout America — that which lies hand-in-glove with powerful Marxist/socialist/communist forces (six of one, half a dozen of the other) which have embedded within the nation’s top tiers. Yes, from Capitol Hill’s far-left ruling Demsters; to Governors; to Mayors; to City Councils; to the educational system; to cultural arenas, etc., none have escaped their grasping reach. Calamitous.

But nothing bespeaks of a looming catastrophe more than the decimation of law enforcement; upon which domestic security is predicated. Full throttle. Indeed, the shrill cries to “defund the police” are a direct knock-on effect to the continuous blood-soaked streets; they are book-ends marching towards anarchic rule. No doubt. Again, sans proper policing, there is NO security. Period.

Not only that, before the “then and now” video proofs are presented, the following must be aired. After all, none of the above, nor the below, would have come to pass, that is, if the far-left’s choke-holds comprised “fake news”:

ALERT: Police Officers Now Being Targeted At Their Homes

Still yet, before anything else, a close examination of the wreckage within the NYPD — that is, since Comrade DeBlasio took over the reins, in 2014 — necessitates a due diligence review of the following evidentiary trails housed inside this site. Trust, they are bullet-proof.


And so on and so forth.

Now, onto the promised “visual aids”….

THEN, as in 2010….4 years prior to Comrade DeBlasio’s wrecking balls!

NOW…..from 2014 to the present…..







NYPD’s/Mayoralty’s Islamist Takeover:The Expected Outgrowth of Commie, Third World Devotee, De Blasio’s Rule!Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

WHEN the citizens of NYC (incidentally, this blogger’s birthplace, hometown and general address of countless business/personal connections, prior to moving to Israel) elected Bill de Blasio, they effectively handed over the keys to the “Big Apple” to a commissar. Unfathomable.

CLEARLY, many die-hard leftists wanted this outcome and the city is overrun with said twisted anti-liberty pygmies. But just as surely, a preponderance of voters had little idea about their new mayor’s real proclivities, not having bothered to conduct their own (limited) due diligence. Unconscionably, they fell for his “folksy” presentation; a “man of the (working class) people” and the antithesis to Bloomberg. Granted, the ex Mayor is a Wall Street magnate. Yes, this blogger finds him detestable too, but for different reasons. Be that as it may, it doesn’t obviate the typical leftist-driven class/racial warfare claptrap which invariably works, like a guilt charm, on many citizens. Hmm.

FOR the record, Bill de Blasio has a strong affinity for terrorist guerrillas, you know, akin to the PLO/PA/Fatah/Hamas (and so on) murderous crew.

AS a matter of historical truth – know thy history well – Arafat’s murderous terror apparatus schooled at various Soviet addresses, but they also set up their lairs within Latin America (at the tri-border region, like Hezbollah), the same guerrilla “playgrounds” which de Blasio “played” in! 

” PLO’S GROWING LATIN AMERICAN BASE INTRODUCTION At one time, the Monroe Doctrine shielded Latin America from interference by nations outside the Western Hemisphere. In recent decades, however, the Doctrine has been violated so repeat- edly that in effect it has been repealed. The Soviet Union has established a garrison in Cuba, while Eastern bloc states have joined Moscow in creating a base of ope rations in Nicaragua and Grenada.

Yet another external force is escalating its interference in this Hemisphere–the terrorist Palestine Liberation Organization. The PLO works closely with Nicaragua’s radical Sandinista regime and is helping those who are t rying to overthrow El Salvador’s democratically elected government. At camps in Cuba and the Middle East, the PLO trains cadres of terrorists, which head back to Latin America to undermine established regimes. While the PLO is not the cause of Latin Ameri ca’s most basic problems, it is exploiting them.

In turn, the PLO increasingly uses its growing Latin American base to reinforce its international terrorist campaign against the United States and Israel FORGING PLO-CUBAN-SOVIET LINKS Since its establishmen t by the Arab League in 1964, the PLO has grown from an irredentist militia into what has been described as IIa multinational business corporation, with an amalgam of terrorism and diplomacy as its end product…..


CONSEQUENTIALLY, familiarize yourselves with the CV of NYC’s mayor. As a result, the rest of his anti-American activities will flow, and they emanate from years of backing the worst of the worst banditos!

HIS dangerous associations become even more revealing….

To cite just once source, the Russian-born scholar, Dr. Jamie Glazov, who came to America as a child when the KGB forced him and his pro-democracy, dissident parents into exile, is among those who beg to differ. Glazov wrote:

The Sandinistas quickly distinguished themselves as one of the worst human rights abusers in Latin America, carrying out approximately 8,000 political executions within three years of the revolution. The number of “anti-revolutionary” Nicaraguans who disappeared while in Sandinista hands numbered in the thousands. By 1983, the number of political prisoners inside the new Marxist regime’s jails was estimated at 20,000. This was the highest number of political prisoners in any nation in the hemisphere — except, of course, in Castro’s Cuba. By 1986, a vicious and violent Sandinista “resettlement program” forced some 200,000 Nicaraguans into 145 “settlements” throughout the country. This monstrous social engineering program entailed the designation of “free-fire” zones in which Sandinista government troops shot and killed any peasant of their choosing.

Not long after the Times exposé, the New York Post published a column reminding New Yorkers of the Sandinistas’ ugly anti-Semitism — another undeniable truth. That was too much for the old “Sandalistas” (the sandal-wearing Sandinista fellow travelers who haunt the halls of American academe). The Nicaragua Network, of which de Blasio was once a leading member, issued a press release warning its faithful followers that the “New York Post resurrects lies about Nicaraguan revolution!” The Nicaragua Network assured the faithful that the information about Sandinista anti-Semitism were (naturally) just a bunch of CIA fabrications, and urged them to “Send letters to the editor!”

That battle cry was sounded. Sandalistas, unite!

Fortunately, some of those who know better are speaking up. Leading the charge is the former leftist-turned-conservative and Cold War scholar Ronald Radosh. “In the wake of a short Post article noting that Bill de Blasio ignored (at best) the anti-Semitism of the rulers of Nicaragua during his 1988 visit there,” Radosh wrote, “his supporters have insisted the Sandinista junta wasn’t anti-Semitic. In fact, the record is clear — and ugly.” Radosh also notes that “The official Sandinista newspaper, Barricada, ran an editorial in January 1990 in which it attributed distrust of their country by the ‘Yankee bureaucracy’ to the ‘traditional “Jew-style” with which the U.S. Congress manages the taxes of the taxpayers.’”

READERS, you get the picture, but back to the NYPD and the infected PC police…

STILL, if anyone doubts whether or not this blogger is familiar with the NYPD – understanding full well the influence the mayor’s office has over its policies – reconsider your calculus. Post haste. The counter-terror domain too.

WITHIN this context, the commie-in-residence disbanded the NYPD’s (conceived via previous NYPD Commissioner Kelly, the best Commish, bar none) premier surveillance program. It focused on Islamic terror and headed to its roots; inside NYC mosques!  Grave error.

AND anyone who opines that said spying was unnecessary, they haven’t a clue as to what they are babbling, as they egregiously leave Islamists free to plot within their mosques and “community centers”. You still have doubts? Fine. But don’t argue with those whose expertise is unrivaled – and have no political agenda – but just tell the unvarnished Islamic jihadi truth.

SIMILARLY, let’s meander over to just ONE – out of countless – jacked-up jihadi mosque in Brooklyn (this blogger knows what’s what), which is very much in dire need of surveillance – and then some:

AS a native New Yorker (more than familiar with most of the ‘hoods), during an investigation into the various tentacles of the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia, back in 2007 – before making aliyah/immigrating to Israel – this blogger went to visit one of the most dangerous mosques in America in Brooklyn, NY. Accompanied by someone who knew his way around said delicate environs (and with the “blessing” of my beloved late husband, Frank, z”l, to said Sunday outing, though not without some choice words of caution), we came, we saw, we left . Let’s just leave said escort out of this discussion.

YET what can be discussed is the impetus of said foray to At-Taqwa, not something which is considered “normal” relaxation, for most folks, at the end of a jam-packed week of work. But never mind…..

AGAIN, let there be no doubt…. 

BUT, as a specific poisonous fruit (a mere foretaste) to the NYPD’s Islamic penetration, under comrade de Blasio, the poohbahs decreed:

A plan to honor a Harlem cop killed by Nation of Islam radicals is drowning under a flood of racial tensions created more than four decades ago, but no one wants to throw it a lifeline — not even the NYPD’s new top cop.

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton is distancing himself from the controversial push to get the street in front of the 28th Precinct renamed in honor of Officer Phillip Cardillo, who was shot and killed inside a mosque run by Louis Farrakhan in 1972 — noting that the community should make the final decision.

“The Police Commissioner always welcomes the honoring and memorializing of fallen NYPD officers,” Deputy Commissioner Stephen Davis, the NYPD’s top spokesman, said when asked if Bratton favored the street renaming. “However, the issue of street naming is primarily a decision for the community board and other local leaders.”

Cause and effect….and MANY more to come.

IN the main, the resident of Gracie Mansion not only presides over the largest municipal budget in the U.S., but also appoints commissioners to the most important city departments, including the police. In other words, he basically rules the roost and sets the tone. Simple as that.

IN this regard, so much is at stake, even free speech is being threatened. Either it exists for all or it doesn’t. Don’t forget this.

AND no one – with a straight face – can contest that Judaism and Christianity aren’t maligned, six ways to Saturday and Sunday, within the free speech arena. Yet, the PC police can’t be found, hide nor hare, particularly in loony east coast NYC and its “sister” cities. How many readers recall countless obscene verbal/visual displays against Christianity and Judaism, but no one’s rights are silenced. And, for the record, they shouldn’t be.

Freedom From Religion Foundation: Atheists Hit Back at Christian Billboard With an Anti God Message of Their Own


NOT only that, students don’t lose their rights to free speech, just because they enter school grounds, and even the Supreme Court weighed in in the affirmative. Agreed?

Freedom of speech? I’m sorry, we don’t have that anymore. It’s Bill de Blasio time. It’s Obama time. It’s Jihad time.

The NYPD’s Hate Crimes unit is looking to identify the person who distributed anti-Muslim fliers in at least one of the Shore Haven apartment buildings near Cropsey Avenue and 21st Avenue in Bath Beach, according to Councilman Mark Treyger’s office.

The fliers were found throughout the building this week, showing a hateful message calling Muslims “the second holocaust” and claims “USA hates you”. There is what appears to be a woman in a burka inside a “No” symbol, and there is also an abundance of exclamation points.

Actually the flyer mentions Islamists. Have we outlawed that too? Apparently we have. Just like ISIS did.

“I am disgusted and saddened to hear of this hateful act in our community. There is absolutely no place for this type of hatred, especially in a city and borough as diverse and tolerant as ours. My thanks to the 62nd Precinct for their quick response and thorough investigation of this heinous act,” said Treyger in a statement. “I will continue to work closely with the NYPD and entire community so those responsible for spreading hate will held accountable and I urge anyone with information to come forward. It is my belief that an act of hate against one group is an act of hate against our entire community. The bottom line is there is no room in this day and age for these attacks against any member of our community.”

Is a flyer an act of hate now? I guess it is.

But here’s a little thought experiment. Imagine that the flyer read “Zionists Go To Your Country!!! USA Hates You!!! You are Terrorists and Bastards!!!”

Would there be a hate crimes investigation?

In the unlikely event that there was, how many seconds would it take before the ACLU’s lawyers showed up in a fire truck to defend whoever did it while the New York Times wrote an angry editorial warning that we were silencing dissent.

ON a macro level, lest anyone believes the above is a mountain over a molehill, let’s segue to a recent protest at Capitol Hill. Then, you decide if there is a “protected” group, or not. In essence, where some are freer than others to exert their freedom of speech! Not fair…not nice at all…

The Jews were removed, but the menacing  terror supporters were allowed to continue? That’s Obama’s America.

The savages who were violent and threatened the Jews should have been arrested and removed.

ON the other hand, in relation to non-officialdom – and in defiance of comrade Bill de Blasio and his newly “reformed” NYPD – the good people of NYC aren’t cowed by those who seek to impose their anti-freedom agendas. Israel is alive and well in many of its citizens’ hearts, and the video below is a heartening exhibit!

IN fact, despite the Brotherhood’s takeover in Washington by Obama Inc., and the duly demonstrative anti-American and anti-Israel mayor of NYC, the following video tells the street level tale – and it is music to these ears:


Am Yisrael Chai…עַם יִשְרָאֵל חַי…the people (nation) of Israel lives!

MOST urgently, for the west’s safety, not just for NYC, Shariah law must be eliminated! Whatever it takes…the crisis…the calling of our lives…
