JUDAISM DISCOVERED 46 MICHAEL HOFFMANthe Satmar Gonniff stole tens of millions of dollars throughout his thirtyyears at Satmar. The government finally caught up with him, he pleabargained, and stayed out of jail. Do not tell me that the Rebbe did not knowwhere all these millions came from. Leib Pinter, the notorious Bnai Torahfraudster, stole millions of dollars for non existent government lunchprograms. Every single Chassidic Mosad participated willfully and knowinglywith Pinter. Munkascz, Vishnitz, Ger, Belz, Satmar, Skver, Bobov, and allthe other midgets with fur hats and long filthy black bathrobes, had a directhand in this and all other government frauds through Pinter and his cohorts.Pinter went to jail. Pinter has been indicted again for mortgage fraud. He is 26the energizer goniff , he keeps stealing & stealing & stealing When theygot caught, these nice guys, rebbes, threw the front men to the dogs. Therewas drug money laundering, and drug selling through Bobov. Maher Reisswent to jail. The Munkaczers brother, the Dinover Rebbe, brother in-law of 27the Vyepoler Rebbe (Frankels shul in Flatbush), was caught drug smuggling. But they have pretty shuls and fancy homes. Every single timerecords had to be produced, all of a sudden the files somehow got destroyedby fire....Skver, Bobov, Munkascz, Satmar, Gur....all had fire sales. "You criminals alter the Torah to suit your dementia. You all belong in mental hospitals when you get out of jail. You guys sicken me. There is not an honest person among you! I have more respect for Al Capone than I have for you. He did not hide his fraud and theft behind God. "Shlomo Halberstam, the first misfit of Bobov, landed in New York after the war. He had his butt fired at the first shul that hired him...This holy genius moved to Crown Heights and ran a kindergarten. His job was to give the kids candies. I swear this is true, I spoke to one of those kids. A few lunatic admirers of this Don Juan, decided to move him to Boro Park. So what that he had no clue about learning. He made them feel good, what else matters? He was a master at his game....his father advised his kehilla in Poland not to worry about the Nazis, and assured them that no harm would come to them. He was a "holy" man, surely his bracha had G-Ds seal of approval. Well, you know the end of that story. The holy men from Gur and Belz gave the same advice to their followers. They would do and say anything2 6 Con-man.2 7 Synagogue.
JUDAISM DISCOVERED 473 MICHAEL HOFFMANof "Eretz Israel" to a non-Judaic, i.e. to Palestinians. In the summer of 2004,Avigdor Neventzal, Chief Rabbi of the Old City in Jerusalem stated: "Itshould be known that anyone who wants to give away Israeli land is like arodef, and certainly land should not be given to non-Jews. Anyone cedingparts of the Land of Israel to gentiles is, from a halakhic point of view,subject to din rodef." This term, "subject to din rodef denotes "classified as apursuer." Apologists explain the killing of a rodef in terms of anunderstandable, common sense survival ethic: "someone comes to kill you, 5 5 9you kill him first." What apologists dont tell you is that rodef is definedbroadly —a tipster who identifies a Judaic child molester to the police, anunborn baby "pursuing" its mother, or an Israeli Prime Minister who signsthe Oslo accords. In a tyranny, a word is anything the tyrants say it is, and inOrthodox Judaism a rodef is defined so loosely it encompasses whomever therabbinate wants bumped off. One can say that the entire nation of Palestinians have been classifieden masse as din rodef. Several prominent Israeli rabbis, including RabbiHaim Druckman, declared on Sept. 7, 2004 that "killing enemy civiliansduring war is normal." So what problem do the rabbis have with Hitler?Simply stated, his sin was based on the fact that, mistakenly thinking he washead of the Master Race, Hitler killed human beings; whereas Israelis, whoknow for certain they are the Master Race, merely snuff-out sub-humans. "A group of fourteen prominent rabbis, led by Druckman, who areconsidered authorities by the religious-Zionist public, asked the Israeli armynot to flinch from killing Palestinian civilians in the context of the ongoingmilitary campaign against armed groups resisting the occupation. Druckman,71, is one of the most prominent and veteran leaders of the religious Zionistmovement, has been a public figure for over 50 years, since serving as arevered leader in the Bnei Avika youth movement in the early 1950s. In aletter to the Israeli defense minister, Shaul Mofaz, published on Sept. 7,2004, the rabbis said killing enemy civilians is normal during time of war and that the Israeli occupation army should never hesitate to kill non-Jewish civilians in order to save Jewish lives. The rabbis quoted a Talmudic edict, from the ancient sage, Rabbi Akiva, as stating: Our lives come first. The Israeli newspaper Haaretz (Sept. 9) warned that Israeli ...soldiers, and even5 5 9 Cf.
