All Things Arielle

We here at the blog have had numerous requests for more information about Tony Ortega’s mysterious wife, Arielle Silverstein (aka Bozuri, aka Arielle Sarai). As the pants-wearing bread-winner of the household, in many ways Silverstein remains the driving economical force behind Ortega’s cottage industry hate farm.

Because of the sheer volume of requests we’ve been getting on the matter we thought it best to create a cross-referenced cheat-sheet for our readers so that they can better understand this shadowy side figure at a glance.

  • Arielle Silverstein is Tony Ortega’s third, and most recent wife.
  • Current occupation: Ethics Office, United Nations
  • Law status: unlicensed to practice law in the US; member of the Israeli Bar Association.

While it’s been no secret that Silverstein has been masquerading as an ‘anonymous source’ for Tony Ortega over the years, dating back to Ortega’s now long-gone days of being employed. Tipsters have suggested that she was feeding him tips in her official capacity as UN employee.

It has been well documented here on this blog and elsewhere that while Tony Ortega’s primary obsession has long been Scientology, his hatred extends to religion of any stripe. Arielle “Sarai” Silverstein joins him in his anti-religious crusade with such regularity that it’s caused us to wonder whether she’s been unofficially (and possibly illegally) using her work time and work computer to spread the Ortega message of intolerance.

Arielle Silverstein’s Posting Controversies

Consider the blog post below, made on the morning of Tuesday May 12 (in the middle of a work day):

I’m planning on committing the crime of blasphemy on #MohammedDay, May 20. It’s good not to be living in Kuwait, Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia.” Arielle Silverstein

One wonders how the United Nations might feel that its Ethics Office is being used to incite religious violence. Or advocating for regime change in Islamic states.

Personally, from completely egotistic motives I want the ayatollahs gone, so that I can visit all the pre-Islamic sites in Isfahan.” Arielle Silverstein

Or posting her feelings about how Christmas makes her want to gag, even going so far as to throw shade on her fellow Anonymous goons, saying how the San Francisco goons are superior to the New York goons. Nothing like fomenting an East Cost/West Coast beef, I guess.

Why ever would you think that anyone from “Motherfuckery” needs help being subtle, especially after hearing their sweet and gentle 12 days of Christmas? Personally I sort like how they make me laugh, gag and blush all at the same time 🙂 I love NY anons [Anonymous], but very often they are not funny, but just rude. I was present at their last protest and the passers by could not comprehend what the hell was going on and why this bunch of young guys and girls were screaming profanities. I really do prefer the San Francisco anon’s style.” Arielle Silverstein

And of course, like so many hatemongers, Silverstein can’t seem to understand why no one has a sense of humor about the things they believe in most dearly.



According to it’s own guidelines, Silverstein’s extra-curricular posting activities land her squarely outside the United Nations’ official policy:

… while staff members’ personal views and convictions, including their religious convictions, remain inviolable, staff members shall ensure that those views and convictions do not adversely affect their official duties of the interests of the United Nations.”

Arielle seems to conveniently ignore the Universal Declaration of Human Rights upon which her organization was founded.

Articles 2, 7 and 18 which are worth quoting in full:

Article 2: Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.

Article 7: All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination.

Article 18: Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

Perhaps it’s high time for a Special Council to investigate this breech of policy in a legal context? The paper trail of tweeted hate-rants and anti-religious bigotry-blogging would make for damning evidence indeed.

Tax Scams?

According to public records Silverstein (and/or Silberstein) has generate in excess of 2 million dollars off of mysterious real estate investments both in Israel and the United States.

The fact that tracing all of this back to Arielle is so patently obfuscated has some wondering aloud whether there isn’t some tax avoidance trickery at work here.

More of her suspicious properties can be seen here.

Rich Parents

Leonid “Leon” Silverstein, Dina Azbel and their daughter Arielle, migrated to Israel from the Ukraine in the early 1980’s. Leonid Silverstein, co-owns 50% of AL Electricity Engineering Forever LTD, a company in Israel which earns north of 5.5 million dollars annually, and helped found Comet ID Trade LTD with his partner Tsabari Adi Saadia. From humble beginnings these companies would grow into a small fortune for Leonid, providing him with a combined income of 6.8 million annually.

Dina’s cosmetic business which focused chiefly on acne, unsightly circles under the eyes and age-defying creams seems to have gone out of business in recent years but the couple’s joint investments in real estate continue to generate wealth to the tune of several million dollars with at least three properties in Petach Tikva.

Though the Silversteins are culturally Jewish, overseas tipsters inform us the Silversteins remain, in fact, strident atheists. It would appear this is a trait that would stretch all the way back to Leonid’s parents, Paina and Samion Silverstein, who were also atheists.

Considering that Silverstein is already supporting a deadbeat husband and two children open questions surrounding her ability to afford so many properties on her ‘Office of Ethics’ salary abound. Just how much Arielle’s parent’s off-shore money keeps Ortega afloat remains a closely guarded secret.

First Hand Account

From time to time we receive first hand accounts here at the blog from those unfortunate enough to cross paths with Tony and Arielle.

One of the more interesting examples of this came in the wake of a trip the two took to The Republic of San Marino

A San Marino tipster, who recognized Arielle Silverstein and Tony Ortega, wrote to us relating that the couple left their hotel room in a complete and utter mess and that they staff of the hotel deemed them among the worst guests the hotel ever had. The tipster said that the maid commented to him, “I porci sono piu puliti di quei due!” (The pigs are cleaner than those two!).

Clearly the chaos Silverstein and Ortega spread extends further than blog posts and internet forums.
