Dear Father,

My heart suffers along with you! You are very brave.

Please be well and keep us informed. There's a great amount of good Jews that feel your pain.

Bravo, angry father. BRAVO. I only hope the others who have been harmed (parents and children) can find it in themselves to be as brave as you and your family. I commend your actions, we all know it is unpopular to be this brave in the community in which you belong. Thank G-d you were able to put politics behind you and instead focus on the well-being of your child. You're an inspiration.

by the way everyone the lawsuit is not 10 million its 20+. 10 for first cause of action, 10 for the second, and the third cause is open ended, technically a jury can side with the plaintiff for 100's of millions. And then the yeshiva will be hit by all the lawyer a court fees from teh plaintiff's side as well.

David Framowitz's story came out in this exact same way. And they say uoj isn't good for anything?!? What do they know? And I am not talking about the establishment either. I am referring to Gil and Harry Maryles among others.

I would respectfully suggest that UOJ fix the grammar and spelling in this note in order to give it more credibility.

I understand that this note displays the heart-wrenching anger of a distraught father. However, if this note is brought up in evidence during a trial, it'd be more credible if the grammar and spelling were corrected.

UOJ: Although I am an outsider to the Orthodox Jewish Community of New York, I look upon your work as heroic. It seems that the community is finally waking up to the corruption that the "Gedolei Yisroel" have been allowed to bask in for the past 30 or so years.

No reason to correct the grammar. This heartbroken father expressed his heart-wrenching righteous anger in his own words. I respect that and am grateful for him for braving this parsha as painful as it is.

response to gil student said...

Gil,

I was tipped off by a friend late tonight about your post. I would much rather be getting some sleep right now, but I feel I cannot wait until tomorrow to respond. The ground rule of the forum indeed was that no names could be mentioned, but I don't think you're naive enough to assume that any informed person didn't know exactly who was being discussed. Even without blatant references to the NY Magazine article, you said yourself - repeatedly - that the mystery blogger is the most widely discussed issue in town. Even if the audience had been held incommunicado for the last year, they have enough clues to find out who UOJ is in no time flat.

It seems that someone other than myself might be confused about Neuhoff. I asked you point blank if you are friends with him. You unequivocally responded "yes". You in fact did both criticize & praise UOJ, which I believe sounds contradictory to reasonable people, at least as far as why you criticized him. I also happen to be a critic of UOJ as far as his attacks on gedolim who do not enable abuse, but you stated in your public remarks that UOJ is mowing down many a yeshiva and organizational official without just cause. You explained that they are not guilty as UOJ would have them, but rather inept. If that is not a whitewash of enablers who conspired to preserve the status quo of abuse, then I must have been hallucinating. Starting with the well known rabbi who handed Tora Temima a list of all victims who came forward, I shudder to think the din vecheshbon these people will have to give. Certainly they are not the well-meaning patsies that you would have us believe.

It is my belief, based on your body language, as well as your speech, that you reluctantly attributed credit to UOJ after practically demonizing him at length. You made sure to point out that you hold UOJ in such contempt that you will never utter his name anywhere, not just in the shul that night. If UOJ is so "obnoxious" and resorts to such nefarious tactics, I think it a fair question to ask why Neuhoff has been spared your wrath. Here is a blogger, who also hid behind a cloak of anonymity, except this time he was on the payroll of alleged abusers & enablers, in the role of attack dog, unleashed on those who would fight injustice.

It is true that you modestly downplayed your role that evening. My comment on your role was directed at how the moderator introduced you as the most widely known figure in the J-blogosphere. In fairness to you, I should have pointed that out. I may have gotten carried away because I have a problem lately with "experts" being inserted where they don't belong, like Rabbi Twerski, who is better suited in the role of juris doctor, than being presented by "honorable" men as some sort of guru in areas beyond his scope. As the Wall St Journal editorial page often mockingly notes, "what would we do without experts?"

I see that you take offense at my revealing what you said to me after the forum concluded. I did not think offhand that you revealed any secrets and our conversation was within earshot of others who were at times listening in and eventually interjecting. I do not take giluy sod lightly, as outlined by the Sefer Chareidim and others as an issur. It was public knowledge that Rav Belsky directed Neuhoff, as Tuvya himself proclaimed on the blog. If R' Aron Schechter's involvement was not for public consumption, please be moychel me for causing you discomfort.

I have been more careful of late to limit my distribution of controversial emails to a select group, but I see that even that can spiral out of control. Now that this is in the open, I hope that I have not erred in any other way. My feeling is that I have not.

I got the feeling in general from the other item we discussed, that you can be a valiant ally in the war on child abuse. I just feel there is room for improvement in the area I highlighted.

re: Schiffenbauer

Gil my dear idiot,

I had my doubts to wether you or your opponents were in the right. But now I have it clear. Your last response, particularly about the enablers, (or like u implied, the bungling fools/rabbis of cover ups fame), illustrates how woefully unqualified you are to even think about this topic. Thanks for setting me straight about you. Your own words are going to be your worst enemy. What u said clearly implies that the ra-bonim of Bobov that handled the Shlomo Hafner debacle (Chaim Yankel and those other Galician shiesters) and the ra-bonim of the YTT/Kolko affair (Pinky Putzless the 100 Titzes of Bartholomew Cumm-ins No Penetration without Lubrication Schienberg and Belsky and Kaminetzky and all "GEDOLIM" other than Rabbi Avigdor of Monsey ZT"L) and the ra-bonim of the Gerrer Eizerowitz puberty counceling mess (Olewski, Kernwasser, Pisher etc.) are just bungling fools and cannot be faulted for failing to do the job they were paid to do and commanded by g-d and country to do!

Gil, tell your sweetheart she has nothing to fear more than your brainless comments. Something tells me that under threat of sleeping in the living room for a year u are going to give up blogging for a very long time. I'm wondering what keeps your ears from falling off the sides of your head. G-d bless u fool. Shomer Pituim Hashem.

steve said...

UOJ, thanks for opening up the comments. May I suggest that you leave them open and turn off moderation. You can then edit out all the garbage at your discretion.

I think you are giving Gil Student too much attention here. To the anon poster who talked to him, I cannot see him as a "valiant ally in the war on child abuse". This is a guy that until last month, was in complete denial regarding Kolko's guilt. I refer you to the comments on his blog of 12/5/06. Leftists with open minds (with their brains falling out) and bleeding hearts are hardly the allies we are looking for.

Furthermore, he constantly attacks UOJ for accusing innocent people, yet never backs up this contention with any examples. When he states that "some of the people he (UOJ) attacks merely mishandled the situation and did not have any malicious intentions", I must refer her him to UOJ's post of January 1, where UOJ states ALL the Establishment rabbis knew about the child molesters and did nothing. This makes them all guilty enablers. UOJ goes on to say that we are all accomplices since we did nothing to stop them. UOJ, I think that was one of your best posts to date and pretty much summed it up for all of us. You were in rare form that day.
I keep reminding these bloggers that due to your efforts, four predators were dismissed/fled in the past year-Kolko,Leizerowitz, Nussbaum and Eiseman. In the case of Nussbaum, we have more work to do since I hear that he's into private tutoring now. In Eiseman's case, we must get him off the NIRC campus before he strikes again. And of course there's Mondrowitz whom we must bring to justice immediately. We will keep the heat on Charles Hynes and his reelection bid and make this a major issue until he capitulates.

You can't imagine the garbage coming in, death threats are the kinder ones. Comment moderation for now I believe is a good idea, the stink from the bad guys is unimaginable. Too bad, I'm just warming up, rested and rearin' to go.

Steve,

I just posted a rejoinder to Gil's last post on the other string. I can't help but to shake my head at the poppycock he wrote. I'm more inclined now to agree with you, that he's a lot less farlozlich than I first thought.

Welcome back R' UOJ! Welcome back Boog!

UOJ,

I am glad you turned on the comments. We need you more than ever now. You are the only voice of pure reason in a world of filthy lies, with the beitzim to do what needs to be done. You've made history in the Orthodox community and more importantly, you're one "godol" that won't go to hell.

I have one request: Would you please use your special connections to search for Farshtoonkena? I could use an uplifting, poetic piece of writing right about now.

Gil Student credibility meter said...

Steve is deifinitely right about relying on this silly man, gilbert, dilbert, whatever the heck his name is. he seems to have poor judgement with his own safety, let alone others. there was a big scandal in flatbush a few years ago that gil was at the center of. some street bum addicted to drugs was breaking into shuls and yeshivos to steal pushkas and silver. he's also suspected of stealing a sefer toyre in boro park. i heard this dude bumped into gil one day and asked him for a place to stay. gil took him in so the guy starts using gil's home as a base for his crimes. after the cops nailed this guy by the name of zuckerwahl or zuckerwahr, something like that, gil wouldn't help the shuls & yeshivos by testifying against him, saying it's loshon hora. mesirah, blah blah blah. he claimed to have a psak from his rov, i dunno, maybe that alter bochur rov of the shul gil davens that has about a dozen members. the rabbonim said gils attitude was nuts. one rov says he's a "weirdo". i don't think it's safe to trust him which is why im writing this.

Why hasn't Lipa been arrested yet? I think Applegrad can be considered an accomplice too. I still can't believe how stupidly funny it was to watch him outright lie to the TV news cameras with a straight face. "At no time did we ever hear of such allegations." HA HA HA, HILARIOUS, LMFAO! That's got to be the funniest line to come out of that building since Twersky's "He's an Honorable man". I, in no way mean to make fun of the main issue at hand, only of how YTT digs themselves into a deeper hole with their comical attempts at spin.

Vos hert zich said...

Any news these days with Simcha Klohr?

Here's a Theory said...

"Why hasn't Lipa been arrested yet?"

There's no question that DA Charles Hynes has been bought off. Hopefully, the pressure from some new lawsuits filed by attorneys in Passaic, and appeals to the new Gov. Elliot Spitzer, will put an end to Hynes stonewalling on yeshiva abuse.

The NYPD is often reluctant to make arrests if they think the charges won't stick by the time the DA is through with it.

One of the driving forces behind this conspiracy, is the Iggud Haganovim, I mean Rabbonim. An activist who is very close to them holds fundraisers for Hynes in his house. That would be Boro Park's Ben Barber of the custom shirts & Elegant Linens.

The Iggud Haganovim of course, is comprised of various gangsters and crooks like Gershon Tennenbaum and Mendel Epstein and the bittul kiddushin musketeers, Belsky and Peretz Steinberg. Convicted pedophile Lipa Brenner figures in somewhere with this group too.

The Iggud has been protecting both Kolko & Tendler and is in bed with the Jewish Press. Yaakov Klass is even Vice President of the Iggud. Why do you think the Jewish Press always runs puffy ads on the Iggud disguised as news reports?

2008 Campaign said...

Maybe Gil Student should run for dog catcher. His platform could be something like, you know, dogs are disgusting creatures, someone should put them out of their misery. But depending on what kind of crowd he's addressing, his alternate speech is all about how they are man's best friends. Or sometimes he can give both speeches rolled into one.

Ko Mevaser said...

Unfortuantely, I am back here on this pathetic blog, but I am left with no choice but to be a voice of reason, a voice of truth, in an environment here that is so permeated with sheker, with profanity and motzie sheim rah, that it defies any standard of respectibility.

UOJ took a hiatus after his identity was revealed. He figured it was prudent. It was affecting his business life - and life in general - greatly, so he took a break. Now he is back. But he is the same dangerous fellow. A person whose every action is so sullied with evil intent. He has taken a righteous cause - fighting molestation, fighting those who endanger our children - and turned it into a joke. He has taken a serious issue and made it one that can be mocked and ridiculed right here on the very blog he claims is the savior of Torah Judaism. The irony is baffling.

So what does he do? He posts an almost unreadable diatribe from a father claiming his son witnessed a boy being molested. No, the poor quality of the writing doesn't disqualify the pos, although it sure doesn't help. It is the content - when read carefully and with a discerning eye - that clearly gives away the fallacious nature of these claims and some of the "facts" mentioned within.

I am here and as one who is willing to stand by what he believes, I will debate whomever it is - whether it be UOJ or one of his cohorts.

UOJ suffers from various personal issues, including multiple personality and schizophrenia. He may choose not to print this because he is too cowardly, as he has done in the past, or he will post this to allow me to discuss this rationally.

UOJ claims to be the voice of reason. He claims to be the sole voice - the true savior of our children.

Let him allow an open dialogue. Let him allow the truth - and only the pure truth, not fictitous claims and bogus stories - to prevail.

I remain,

Kol Mevaser

Ombudsman said...

A big problem that needs to be addressed is members of the community turning to unethical & illegal behavior to underwrite the cost of the frum lifestyle. That is probably one of Elliot Pasik's motivations in pushing Albany for help with tuition.

You have large mishpochos, that keep churning out more kids than they can afford, and accumulating higher tuition bills than they can handle, who turn to unsavory methods of financing themselves.

A bad example is set by the yeshivos, who commit institutional fraud, so who should they look to for guidance? The last time the Agudah put on some halba tuchess seminar on business ethics, the presentation was given by none other than David Schick.

The Feds are not stupid. They have caught on to most of these shenanigans. The heimisher oylam is just lucky that the govt deems it politically incorrect to charge in and turn Brooklyn, Lakewood & Monsey upside down. The govt will tackle one of the larger problems every few years, but they mostly leave the petty corruption alone. They know about the fake shtiebelach gettting tax breaks, along with the accompanying "synagogue vehicles" and fraudulent tax exempt forms used to buy everything from DVD players to chewing gum.

What's outlined above is only the tip of the iceberg. I believe that it is this atmosphere that sets the stage for yeshivos to cover up abuse as well. As the Mishna Avos says, disregard for the law allows for people to be eaten alive. Evidently, even the precious children are not spared the chaos and void.

What does Passaic have to do with this?

Anonymous said...

The Attorney for Mondrowitz victims, Michael Lesher, lives in Passaic. He also got ABC News to agree to put pressure on Hynes by exposing his stonewalling tactics. ABC consulted their own legal experts who said Hynes is full of crap and aired a segment on it.

Kolko is still too comfortable said...

Ombudsman makes an excellent point. Another shtik that people do is illegally convert and rent out parts of their house for rental income. I was thinking about this after I looked up Kolko's current address at 1249 East 22nd St. He applied for a permit in 2003 to add a floor to his house, which was finally approved about a month or two ago. The Buildings Dept website says the permit is the type that only allows for storage, not habitation. This permit is the most abused in Brooklyn by the haymishe crowd. Kolko is wealthy enough that he doesn't need to rent out to strangers like a shlepper, but I'm sure he's going to anyway convert the added floor into bedrooms so family can sleep over. The house is listed under the rebbitzen, Edith Kolko, who according to ACRIS records, also owns tons of real estate elsewhere.

The only voice of sheker and motzie shem ra here belongs to you, as I will promptly outline.

"UOJ took a hiatus after his identity was revealed"

That is false. His hiatus had nothing to do with the shenanigans or the attempted sting operation headed by the YTT henchmen. The alleged outing took place at the end of July, UOJ "retired" at the end of September, while his blog was going very strong.

"A person whose every action is so sullied with evil intent."

Do you consider ridding our yeshivahs of molesters, rescuing Jewish children, and exposing corruption in our midst "evil intent"?

"He has taken a righteous cause - fighting molestation, fighting those who endanger our children - and turned it into a joke. He has taken a serious issue and made it one that can be mocked and ridiculed right here on the very blog he claims is the savior of Torah Judaism."

Once again, the only joker who deserves mocking is you. How many Jewish children have you saved and protected? Before UOJ, how many people, rabbis and laymen combined, considered molestation a "serious issue" in the community?

"So what does he do? He posts an almost unreadable diatribe from a father claiming his son witnessed a boy being molested. No, the poor quality of the writing doesn't disqualify the pos, although it sure doesn't help. It is the content - when read carefully and with a discerning eye - that clearly gives away the fallacious nature of these claims and some of the "facts" mentioned within."

What do you see with your "discerning eye" that tells you the claims are false? In fact, this child and his parents have joined the lawsuit against YTT. Is it so hard to believe that there are more victims, after 40 years of allegations against the same individual beast?

"I am here and as one who is willing to stand by what he believes, I will debate whomever it is - whether it be UOJ or one of his cohorts."

Put up or shut up.

"UOJ suffers from various personal issues, including multiple personality and schizophrenia"

Are you his psychologist? And if you are, isn't it patient/client privilege? And if this is your opinion, does that change anything?

I'm not sure if Margo is buying or selling but the Finance Dept records show some new transactions. If you search for 1 year activity under "yeshiva", you'll find it.

Jan. 3 - Transaction with the Riegelhaupts in Rego Park, Queens. 150 grand for a coop unit.

Jan. 3 - Transaction with the Wertentheils in Woodmere, 5 Towns.

Jan. 11 - Transaction with the Finestones at 951 East 23rd St.

Jan. 11 - Transaction with some Sfardi or Islamic sounding guy over a coop around the corner from Peretz Steinberg's shul in Queens. Maybe Belsky was the broker.

End of March 2006 - Transaction for $1.54 million at 1315 53rd St in Boro Park.

Weinfeld's Shul Member said...

I know we've been pimping ourselves by letting Kolko remain an esteemed figure, but I gotta tell ya the guy is really too much. He got on everyone's nerves at another sholom zochor recently. The fresser grabbed all the good chocolates and gorged himself, leaving all the krummy ones for everyone else. His lawyer snapped at reporters outside the precinct when Yudi was arrested, saying he will be all right when he gets home for Shabbos. He wasn't kidding.

What a Pity said...

That story with Gil Student and the druggie street urchin just shows that although Gil means well, he's like a jinx and everything he touches turns to dreck. I don't understand how he can justify holding back his testimony when that creep had taken all kinds of mammon hekdesh and was a danger to the public. The thief was finally caught when the janitor at Kingsway saw him acting suspicious one Shabbos and followed him to another shul where he broke in through a window. The janitor did yet know when calling 911 that Kingsway had just been robbed too.

This is what we've come to, that a foolish guy who decides to blog and print books is invited by the OU and others to give symposiums.

you dont sound like a victim to me, after sitting on leizerowitz's lap you surely have a differnt view and i understand the torah temimah bashing 1000 % b/c i believe just as in the ger mesivtah case many in the staff knew and had the ability to stop this molesting and child abuse from going on and did zilch about it and its time they pay a price.

LEIZEROWITZ VICTIM FOREVER

Hi everyone. Our firm does not represent my former boss, Yudi Kolko, we represent Yeshiva Torah Temimah.

We all know Kolko has been molesting boys for over forty years. In fact, when I was a counselor in Camp Manavu I warned all my campers to keep very far away from Kolko and Lipa Geldwerth. I think that I saved many boys from being molested by those two animals.

So, please lay off and let us do the job we're being paid to do; defending a makom Torah from victims.

You have to understand that Yudi Kolko had gotten home from from jail with Avi about 3 minutes before shkiah. Nobody wanted to sit next to the shvitzer because he didn't have time to take a bath lekovod Shabbes. He strategically placed himself in front of all the geshmakka nosh where no one else could get to it. He almost didn't make it to the sholom zochor because the reporters were still waiting outside to ambush him. He put on an old shaitel and covered most of his face with a kerchief before sneaking out a back door. With mesiras nefesh like that, it's no wonder Margo thinks he's such an invaluable employee.

Chaim Book:

If you knew about it all along, why didn't you speak up? Warning the boys was nice, but you shoulda spoken up? You are defending reshaim, I hope you loose in court. You should also be locked up for knowing about the info. You're a fool and a fruad, when Lipa is in jail, I hope u will join him.

KOLKO VICTIM

Why is Lipa Geldwirth always mentioned together with Kolko?

Regarding Schiffenbauer, who are the 2 clowns that are his underlings on the Vaad hahorim?

Someone posted a tangential item on the last set of entries about the "Lubob" Rabbi Vigler. I don't know about him in particular, but there has been grumbling in rosh yeshivishe / rabbonishe circles about the wild crowd that gets attracted when you run such a late shacharis.

Stop whining, Gil said...

I notice that Gil is playing a game, as are others involved about what went on Saturday night when he spoke. They are trying to accuse the guy who spoke up of making up stories. What they are doing is actually very disingenious. Because they would mention every fact about someone like UOJ, short of explicitly mentioning a name, if anyone fills in the blank, they say no, we didn't say that. That seems to be the reason why these Clintonian medakdekim have convinced Jewish Survivor blog to take down the post. What is the meaning of "is" ? Oh no, we never mentioned UOJ or anyone else that night. Gil's friends are moaning that he's owed an apology, but someone else wrote on that blog as follows:

What was inaccurate about the post and who did you learn about it from ? Did you hear both sides of the story ? I checked the shul website and they have not yet posted the audio so that anything can be absolutely verified. I happen to know the person in attendance who recorded what happened. He is known to be a very straight shooter who hates dishonesty. He is knowledgable, a musmach from a prestigious yeshiva and is close to some of the true gedolim in our times, who are much greater than anyone on the Moetzes or who cover up abuse. You don't hear from these gedolim because they are too old and frail to get involved and are largely ignored by the Agudah politicos.

I looked into this issue today and found out that the forum was mostly attended by members of the left of center Modern Orthodox shul where it was held. These people cheer Gil on as some kind of hero because they think he takes up their causes and that's why they invited him. It seems like the people there don't understand the complexities of Gil's hypocritical nuances and association with Neuhoff. They are giving him a pass and a bunch of slaps on the back because he otherwise told them what they want to hear. The forum was not so much for these shul people to band together to fight molesters. They just wanted to hear what's going on and how to protect themselves in their own backyard. Hey, who cares if Gil is full of it.

Rabbi Stone is on the same block as Schiffenbauer and Vigler. He's a Lubob too.

Attention Chaim Book said...

I don't know if the allegations against you are true. If they are you should be disbarred, Mr. Officer of the courts.

this cracks me up about when Avi Kolko brought home tatty about 2 minutes to shekiah. some pro-Kolko idiot was complaining last month on the Rav Solomon blog that Ben Hirsch must have been staked out near the house so he could help the reporters with what exactly was going on

Honorable mention said...

While UOJ was on hiatus, there was stuff on the blogs about a heroic rov from Williamsburg who shut down what was practically a factory of molestation. Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg who runs a kashrus organization that is machshir mikvos worldwide, found out that the main Yerushalmi mikve under the auspicies of the Badatz had men taking little boys in to violate at any given time. Rabbi Rosenberg said he hasn't stopped shaking months later from the disgusting scene he witnessed of touching & even homo rape. After he intervened, the place is only open during certain hours with shomrim to keep an eye on things.

That really was a great post by Ombudsman. This thing with the illegal apartments can be a bigger issue than people realize. There's some slob on East 27th St who walks around with bulging clothes that are many sizes too small. To make a long story short, he illegally converted his house into a 2 family and rents out the "other half" to unsuspecting victims. I heard the story and verified it's true on the city website. Besides that they are nuts who drive the tenants crazy, inspectors already figured it out and he was ordered by the courts to convert it back to a one family. The slob is still trying to rent it out so he can make a few bucks off the next victims until the inspectors come back. Some people we know almost moved in this winter, but thank G-d they found out about these animals.

The recording of Saturday night's program can now be accessed at etzchaimkgh.org. Any excerpt or report cannot do the topic justice. Please come and listen and form your own opinion.

who you kidding? said...

I just listened to the audio and Gil didn't mention the Torah Vadaas minyan at all. I don't what that guy was talking about.

Response to Gil Student said...

Please refer to the audio file of Gil Student's public address.

Gil started off in his first "for the record" post here by saying that Rabbi Rosenberg never mentioned anything about UOJ, which would have me putting words in his mouth as it were. Very true regarding Rabbi Rosenberg and also very misleading because Gil himself referred to the NY Magazine article at 1 hour and 47 minutes into the forum. This was after all the other dead giveaway clues that Gil provided. How do you spell comic relief ? It's not R-O-L-A-I-D-S. It's Gil Student giving a speech on U-O-J. If Gil wants to play dumb he will have to find another choir to preach to.

Gil said that I mistated the Neuhoff details that he told me. That is simply not true.

Gil has adamantly stated that his words that night can only be interpreted as lauding UOJ. He then tried to "clarify" by saying he was not attacking UOJ on his core mission of stopping molesters, but over what Gil feels are peripheral issues, like UOJ maligning people that are "remotely involved" or who "merely mishandled" the situation. Gil was mocked at the time for not making sense about the enablers who are much more complicit than he would like us to believe.

I will now demonstrate that the audio shows, in my view, that Gil also contradicted himself on the core inyan of UOJ vs molesters.

45 minutes into the audio - Gil makes what sounds like an odd statement that he is not interested in molesters going to jail. That he feels, is for victims interested in "revenge". Gil says he is only interested in protecting his children. Pray do tell Gil, how you can ensure your children's safety if predatory beasts are allowed to roam free ?

46 minutes - Although Gil later commends UOJ, he describes UOJ's tactics of stopping molesters as "offensive"

48 minutes - Gil informs us that what UOJ did (in the context of stopping molesters) was "ossur" - "but he saved children."

50 minutes - The same UOJ that Gil claims he called a "hero", is labeled a "malcontent". I'm not sure which definition Gil bears in mind but the word was apparently first introduced to English in the Middle Ages. In Shakespearian & later Renaissance literature, the morality and sympathy of the malcontent is a massive variable.

1 hour & 17 minutes - Rav Blau shlita criticizes the parent body of Tora Temima for enabling Margulies and setting back the fight against molestation in general by leaving their sons in the yeshiva. Allow me to derive from this that Gil's friend Neuhoff is in the same boat, if not worse, for accepting Margulies's offer of employment. To my knowledge Gil has never criticized Neuhoff at all, although the apologists have begun littering the blogs with alibis for Neuhoff, which will probably be invoked. Neuhoff mind you, has had time to sanitized his blog by deleting many revolting items that would be difficult to defend against. Furthermore, Gil has not bestowed any of the plethora of rosy appellations on Neuhoff that he applied to UOJ, like "obnoxious", "malcontent", etc

1 hour & 26 minutes - Gil admits that no one has been unjustly fired as a result of being accused. In the same breath he then says he would still not employ UOJ's methods.

1 hour & 29 minutes - be'neshima achas, Gil says that UOJ saved children AND that UOJ attacked "well meaning" people (I can't make this up)

Gil says he is most upset by the Rabbi Schiffenbauer "revelation". I did not hear any mention of the minyan on the recording although I am sure it was part of the public comments. I don't know who it was that uploaded the tape after almost a week and wether there could have been some sort of glitch or edit. I was sure that Gil mentioned the minyan, most likely after enumerating the various yeshivos whose talmidim he said follow the blogs. I cannot even figure out a context where it could have been inserted in our semi-private conversation. (I believe there is one other remark made last week, one that is a political hot potato, that is mysteriously missing. I would have to listen to the audio again to be certain). Still, I am guilty of at least one error here. There was really no need for me to farentfer myself. Gil does not accuse me of fabricating that story and I did not blow some kind of secret as Rabbi Schiffenbauer gave the remarks in his shul where it was surely at least be'apei tlasa. As I mentioned earlier, I also had no idea who Gil was referring to. Abstract parties filled in the blanks because it was already public knowledge.

Getting back to the contradictions that are like tantzerei bei alleh chassunos, I would ask the real Gil Student to please stand up.
