ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ!


The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer Sebastian Vilar Rodriguez and published in a Spanish newspaper on Jan. 15, 2008. It doesn't take much imagination to extrapolate the message to the rest of Europe - and possibly to the rest of the world. REMEMBER AS YOU READ -- IT WAS IN A SPANISH PAPER.


ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ
By Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez

I walked down the street in Barcelona, and suddenly discovered a terrible truth - Europe died in Auschwitz. We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.

The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned.

And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.

They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime.

Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.

And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition.

We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs.

What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe ...

The Jews are NOT promoting brainwashing children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non Muslims. The Jews don't hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in German restaurants. There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed a church.

The Jews don't traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.

Perhaps the world's Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.

Muslims must ask 'what can they do for humankind' before they demand that humankind respects them.

Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab neighbors, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel's part, the following two sentences really say it all:

'If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel ." Benjamin Netanyahu

General Eisenhower warned us. It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

He did this because he said in words to this effect:

'Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened'

Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.

It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. In memory of the, 6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests who were 'murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated' while the German people looked the other way.

Now, more than ever, with Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.

How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center 'NEVER HAPPENED' because it offends some Muslim in the United States?

PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!

What, exactly, do the left-wing see in the arabs? The liberals like to think of themselves as modern, compassionate, and freethinkers; why then are they attracted to the arab population, who are primitive, third-world, brutal and jihadist, and fanatical to a dangerous degree?
Jews are extremely smart and talented; its such a shame that they have orginazations and cults which quash it.

Was it the Vaad Harabbonim of Toronto who was dumb enough to be magayer this fraudster? We have enough homeboys without any need for imports.

http://www.torontosun.com/news/columnists/michele_mandel/2011/01/07/16806141.html

The convicted fraudster figured he could con the court, as he’s conned so many others, into stopping his online nemesis from warning other potential clients about his shady past.

Craig Hutchens, aka Sandy Hutchens, Fred Hayes, Moishe Alexander & Moishe Ben Avraham wanted Brent Hillier silenced and for almost 2 years has used the courts to do his dirty work.

But in a stunning decision this week, Ontario superior court Justice Carolyn Horkins rebuked Hutchens for misusing the justice system.

She overturned a lower court injunction & gave Hillier full reign to continue posting his scathing warnings comparing him to Bernie Madoff until a defamation lawsuit is decided.

For Hillier, it was a relief. “I’m just trying to continue to expose him,” he said.

Hutchens is a notorious mortgage lender convicted on 4 counts of fraud & one of trafficking a controlled substance.

With a character reference from his rabbi — the Baptist-raised 51-year-old converted to Orthodox Judaism during his court ordeal — he managed to score a sentence of 2 years house arrest in his comfortable Thornhill home & was soon back in business as head of Canadian Funding Corp.

But allegations he was operating a mortgage fraud continued — from exposes by the Sun to lawsuits in Florida & Colorado.

The convicted conman launched a defamation action against scam.com & won an interim injunction against the website posting “derogatory statements”.

The outrageous order went further — allowing Hutchens to enter scam.com offices & search for IP addresses of 4 anonymous posters allegedly libelling him.

Hutchens had OPP officers bang on his door & demand his computer — which Horkins slammed as “ridiculous use of police resources,” and “gross misuse” of the court order.

“For years Hutchens has improperly used the courts to be his sword to defeat people who had every right to speak their mind,” said Hillier’s lawyer, Brian Shiller.

“It was a gross miscarriage of justice that was finally corrected after my client spent $10,000s to defend himself from a man who has victims littered all across North America.”

So, look out Moishe Alexander or whatever your current name is.

Not to throw a bucket of cold water on this Spainard - but he left out the Inquistion and the Expulsion, didn't he? The pot can't call the kettle black all the time and think that the rest of the world will ignore it. Spain's Roman Catholics and Moslem Moors are still going at it. Neither side is in love with Jews.
The politicization of the Nobel Prize will reconcile the numbers over the course of time. The farce of giving Yassir Arafat the peace prize sent Alfred spinning in his grave, no doubt. Regarding Eisenhower, he was appalled and aghast that humanity could reach such depths. His own staff wanted a coverup and to his credit, he did the opposite.
Denial of the Holocaust is just a continuation of the Holocaust. They can't gas us or line us up so they delegitamize a tragedy or claim that they've undergone equivalent atrocities. Still hear, in my own mind, the pot calling the kettle black.

I see two Orthodox names, the very heimisher yid Shmuel Yosef Agnon, and a winner of the Wolf Prize in mathematics Harry Furstenberg, a graduate of YU. Hopefully there are a few more, but there certainly aren't many. There are also a few people like Wiesel and I.B. Singer who are closely connected to Jewish life. With 14 million Jews in the world and around 2 million Orthodox (14%)it is clear that the with a few exceptions these prizes are going to non-Orthodox Jews. This can be interpreted in different ways. Here's one...assuming Orthodoxy is more or less unchanging, and great intellectual achievements are important, the only way to have both is to give a new spin to Yissachar and Zevulun.
My other observation is that the ratios we see here are pretty much the same when we look at Jews of great accomplishment across the board, the arts, Hollywood, the theater, hi tech start ups, philosophers...you name it. The only possible exception are great entrepreneurs. If we understood why, maybe something could be done? Torah u Madah as a motivator is yielding results that favor the safe and secure. It's an important topic.

Kranc Iz Er ("sick is he" in Yiddish) said...

The tale of Gershon Kranczer, the Krancer aka Kranc-iz-er, 16

This is so wonderful, is what Kranczer the "incestuous 'rabbi'" is thinking right now. It's been two months and no one knows where he or his son are hiding out. Nothing, nada, is known about their current whereabouts and nothing, nada is being said about them either.

So what, you might ask, are their da'as Toireh rabbis who backed Kranczer up to lately, like Aron Schechter and Leizer Ginzburg?

Well, they are making the most of rolling in the aura of the late righteous person Yossi Pressburger z"l who died tragically at the age of 48 while on a business trip to Detroit, Michigan. No mention of their deep and unquestioning support of Kranczer the incestuous creep.

Especially heinous and disgusting is the role of the USA Yated newspaper that has totally ignored the Kranczer incest scandal, even though, FOR TWO DECADES the Yated was THE paper in which Kranczer advertised the "services" of his batty Yeshiva Tehila (better: Bechiya) LeDovid for frum boys with leaning disabilities who nebech had nowhere else to turn, and the Yated was the main means through which Kranczer not only recruited boys, but gained respectability in the Agudah crowd that the Yated caters to, and thereby was able to raise funds, charge hefty tuitions, get the respect reserved for a big rov and rosh yeshiva which he brutally betrayed.

But the Yated has neither apologized for foisting and promoting an immoral degenerate scumbag like Kranczer, and not said a word about the scandal that burned its way across all the main secular papers, including the NYT: "Former Yeshiva Principal Sought on Abuse Charges" (Dec 3, 2010), WSJ: "Father, Sons Face Sex-Abuse Claims" (Dec 4 2010), NYP; "NYPD hunting B'klyn dad & sons who abused women in their family" (Dec 4, 2010), NYDN: "Brooklyn Rabbi Gershon Kranczer and sons accused of sexually abusing relatives, young girls: police", and more...

Kranc Iz Er ("sick is he" in Yiddish) said...

The tale of Gershon Kranczer, the Krancer aka Kranc-iz-er, 17

The Yated has done the opposite, instead of issuing calls for identifying Kranczer and his equally degenerate son Osher Anshil hiding out better than Bin laden in caves in some place in Israel, instead the Yated has threatened to out, unmask and reveal...no not Kranczer silly he is supported by gedoilim....but Jewish bloggers and blog owners who have the temerity to speak truth to power and accuse some gedoilim and the Yated and its gang of supporters of enabling and covering up for child molesters and sex abusers in the Haredi communities it seeks to gloss over with its weekly barrage of Pravda-like propaganda also mirrored on its proxy news blog Matzav.com.

So while the Yated and Matzav.com attack honest people like Harry Maryles and openly threaten to seek out and name and destroy Jewish blogs and blogs that do not share the Yated gang's twisted point of view of covering up for gedoilim, absolutely NOTHING is said about scandals in their midst and the efforts that the Yated and Matzav.com should be making to identify, locate, unmask and reveal the whereabouts and the people who are hiding a genuine corrupt criminal creep like Kranczer who is on the run from the law.

This is what is called selective justice and corruption as abetted by and practiced by the Yated AND its gedoilim, not to mention if Kranczer were ever apprehended and sentenced he would be treated as a hero and "victim" the way his fellow family incest practitioner "rabbi" Yisroel Moshe Weingarten who also ran a yeshiva is now being hailed as a "martyr" and not for the piece of scum he really is.

Such is life in the frum world nowadays.

Tropper is Troubled said...

How Tropper reaps some payback from the Yated's hypocrisy and about face, 1

It's not much consolation and it comes too late to save Tropper's name and career that lie in utter ruin, but the Michael Hersh case and the support Hersh gets from Aron Schechter, the head of the Chaim Berlin Yeshiva in Brooklyn, has given Tropper something to smile about, which of course means that all normal fair-minded people should be very worried.

One of Tropper's main critics is Rabbi Dr. Daniel Eidensohn who runs a blog at http://daattorah.blogspot.com/ that for years posted the truth about Tropper and his allies Tom Kaplan and Guma Aguiar (Guma later went his own way and his been fighting Tropper and Kaplan in court) as they pushed their "EJF" conversions-for-sale project that was brought down by Tropper's sexcapades posted online. Rabbi Eidensohn was supported by Rav Moshe Sternbuch in Israel as well as the full BEDATZ in Jerusalem who banned Tropper and EJF years ago.

Rav Moshe Strenbuch condemned Tropper a long time ago, all as continuously posted by Rabbi Eidensohn on his blog.

Rabbi Eidensohn has also been posting about the Michael Hersh case about the abduction by Hersh of his then 16 year old son Isaac and imprisoning him on "Tranquility Bay" on the island of Jamaica. Hersh has launched a big "legal" (?) case against anyone who helped his son over the years, including relatives, rabbis and bloggers. UOJ has been instrumental in getting the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) to in counter actions against Hersh to protect bloggers rights: "EFF Urges Court to Block Dragnet Subpoenas Targeting Online Commenters" (July 14, 2010).

The case by Hersh against four "defendants" was recently dismissed: "Hersh lawsuit:Case dismissed with prejudice against most defendants" (Jan 4, 2011), but Hersh has filed an "appeal" (see next link) which then prompted Rabbi Eidensohn to post that there is a good chance that those who are being harassed by Hersh, who is supported by Aron Schechter, may now launch their own counter-case against Hersh, and the Yeshiva Rabbi Chaim Berlin and its head Aron Schechter for their ongoing support of Hersh's shenanigans: "Hersh appeals dismissal of case - next step might be a countersuit involving Yeshiva Chaim Berlin! (Jan 7, 2011). Rabbi Eidensohn does not make things up on his own and as an honest broker he is privy to things not revealed yet. (Continued...)

Tropper is Troubled said...

...(Continued)

How Tropper reaps some payback from the Yated's hypocrisy and about face, 2

So alarm bells have been set off in the Chaim Berlin/Agudah/Yated inner circles and they have gone on the counter-offensive by resorting to their own "fire and brimstone" slanders and bans and attacks on blogs and bloggers they deem to be a danger to their interests. The recent ban on VIN, blogger Harry Maryles, full-page ads in the Yated and Hamodiah against the Internet by the Agudah rabbis, and a recent threat in the Yated to out and name independent Jewish blogs and bloggers they hate, is part of ONE pattern and counter-push to prevent THEM from being dragged to court for various violations of human rights, democratic freedoms and constitutional principles in the USA.

It seems as part of the fall-out, the Yated was caught in a bind because about two years ago they decided to host a weekly column by Rav Moshe Strenbuch's on the weekly Parsha lessons. But last week the column was gone! it may come back because it was VERY popular, but right now it seems it has been stopped by the Yated/Agudah/Chaim Berlin mob that is angry and getting angrier as it looks for soft targets to hit out at in the spirit of "offense is always the best defense"!

As long as Rav Moshe Sternbuch's persona was confined to opposing Tropper, that was okay with Yated publisher and editor in chief Pinchos Lipschutz who lives in Monsey, New York where Tropper is based. Lipschutz knows all the dirt on Tropper and hates him, never publishing in glorifications of Tropper and barely mentioning EJF over the years. Lipschutz was long-ago instructed by his uncle Rav Elya Svei z"l to boycott anything to do with Tropper whom he caalled a "no'ef" (womanizer).

But now thanks to developments in another case Tropper gets a boost from left field, as Lipschutz has dropped AND THEREBY INSULTED IN PUBLIC A TRUE GADOL BEYISROEL Rav Moshe Sternbucha long-time Tropper critic, which brings Tropper much happiness and satisfaction that Lipschutz has had to eat his hat.

Tropper also gets to be happy because it was none other than the same Aron Schechter that always and still does prop him up as his chief "da'as Toireh" gadol-in-chief, is also backing up Hersh to the hilt and he can count on Schechter loyalty forever, in spite of all facts and proofs of Tropper's wrondoings.

So what we see here is a convergence of the Tropper and Hersh scandals and it should be very clear to the people caught in the cross-hairs of the Michael Hersh-Aron Schechter attacks, who they are being attacked by and who is attacking them, that they should take heart, toughen themselves and proceed to protect themselves by whatever legal means they can to counter-sue and proceed with full throttle legal actions against Michael Hersh-Aron Schechter-Yeshiva Rabbi Chaim Berlin who are obvioulsly involved in a "take no prisoners" onslaught and therefore the ONLY way to stop them and their immoral actions is by doing to them as they do unto you by taking them to court and making it clear that the legal bullying, threats in the Yated, bans and pronouncements, meant to intimidate and harass critics in silence WILL NOT WORK in afree and democratic society.

Chazak ve'amatz! -- and help wipe that smirk off Tropper's smarmy face!

Since the government took over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, taxpayers have spent more than $160 million defending the mortgage finance companies and their former top executives in civil lawsuits accusing them of fraud. The cost was a closely guarded secret until last week, when the companies and their regulator produced an accounting at the request of Congress.

The bulk of those expenditures — $132 million — went to defend Fannie Mae and its officials in various securities suits and government investigations into accounting irregularities that occurred years before the subprime lending crisis erupted. The legal payments show no sign of abating.

Documents reviewed by The New York Times indicate that taxpayers have paid $24.2 million to law firms defending three of Fannie’s former top executives: Franklin D. Raines, its former chief executive; Timothy Howard, its former chief financial officer; and Leanne Spencer, the former controller.

United States, Appellee v. Israel Weingarten, Defendant-Appellant, 09-2043-cr

Decided: January 18, 2011

Weingarten & his family were members of the Satmar sect of Hasidic Judaism. Weingarten & his ex-wife have 8 children, the oldest a son born shortly after their marriage in 1979, the next oldest being "Doe," a daughter

When Doe was 9 years old, Weingarten began abusing her sexually. This abuse continued for more than 6 years & worsened over time. When Doe first informed her mother that she had been abused, Weingarten beat Doe with his fists & kicked her between her legs. When Doe was 14 years old, she began to resist Weingarten's advances & threatened to tell others about the abuse. After Doe's mother entered her bedroom to find Weingarten & Doe in bed together, Doe again informed her mother of the abuse. Weingarten warned Doe that she would not be believed because of the respect in which he was held in the Satmar community, and because she would have no evidence of abuse, as he had never had intercourse with her. Doe's mother promised to confront Weingarten, but when she did, Weingarten beat Doe so severely that he would not permit her to return to school for several weeks for fear that her bruises would be seen. When Doe did return to school, she spoke with her principal about what was occurring. Eventually, a rabbi of the Belgian Satmar community brought Doe before a rabbinical court, where she testified against her father. Afterward, the rabbi arranged to have Doe sent to England to live with his daughter & attend school there. Doe remained in England for several months.

Weingarten's criminal charges covered events beginning in 1997, after Doe returned to Belgium. Upon Doe's return from England, Weingarten informed her that the family, resident in Belgium for 13 years, would be moving to Israel because of the bad name she had given them by complaining publicly about the abuse. On Apr 14, 1997, the family traveled from Belgium to Bet Shemesh, Israel. While in Bet Shemesh, Doe, then 16, was sexually abused by her father. She was not permitted to be in public alone & was required to sleep separately from the other children.

On May 13, 1997, Weingarten, his wife, Doe & her younger siblings returned to Antwerp to finish packing for Israel. Weingarten continued to sexually abuse Doe every night, often while her mother slept in the same room. The family returned to Israel where the abuse continued.

On Jul 30, 1997, Weingarten & Doe traveled from Israel to Brooklyn, NY, where Weingarten's father was ill & dying. During the visit, Weingarten sexually abused Doe at her uncle's house. After Weingarten's father died, Weingarten & Doe flew to Antwerp on Aug 19. Alone with Doe in Antwerp for a month, Weingarten sexually abused her "night & day, every day." Doe informed her father that she wanted to return to Israel. Weingarten consented, but as a condition, he required Doe to record a conversation with a male neighbor, in which she was to give the impression that she previously had seduced the neighbor. Weingarten informed Doe he planned to play the tape for rabbis in Satmar, so that they would believe his claims that she was promiscuous & he had never molested her.

Doe returned to Israel in Sept 1997. She & her mother contacted the rabbi in Belgium who had previously been involved in sending Doe to England, who then assisted Doe in returning to school there. Although Weingarten later traveled to England & confronted Doe, police intervened, she obtained a protective order against him, and no further abuse occurred. Doe remained in England, but eventually moved to NY, where she married a man from the Satmar community. The marriage lasted only a year, after which Doe abandoned her religious life, left NY, and legally changed her name.

EJ's point is well taken and is a reason that I encourage higher education for our children.

We well know that the vast majority of our children are not necessarily willing, able, or capable emotionally of being rabbonim, rosh yeshivas (of merit)...or disposed to living that type of life.

But they are bright to extremely bright and can excel in Torah studies and the sciences. One should encourage that path for the majority of our children.

There are potentially hundreds if not thousands of "Milton Friedmans" in our collective communities that must be encouraged to pursue the path that can contribute to shleimus for them and society.

Milton Friedman was technically "OTD" or strayed from his Orthodox upbringing; simply because his parents could not find a way to reconcile Torah studies and his genius and love for the sciences.

Today --- that is totally possible and each parent should indeed be encouraged to maximize their child's potential within the framework of Orthodox Judaism.

Was Guma("yehuda dovid kaplan")released from the mental institution where he was put by the "HoRav" Tom Kaplan family?(See "Forbes 400")

"BT Archipelago said...Was Guma("yehuda dovid kaplan")released from the mental institution where he was put by the "HoRav" Tom Kaplan family?(See "Forbes 400")"

Guma was hospitalized by his own mother Ellen Kaplan and his wife Jamie because he was acting irrationally, what's called having a "breakdown" and that he needed help to stabilize. His uncle Tom Kaplan was NOT the one who had anything to do with getting him that help, and Tom Kaplan is NOT a "rabbi" either, in fact Tom and his wife Daphne Recanati are supposedly not even religious while Guma is a sincere BT.

Seems Guma Aguiar was released a while ago (it's not exactly clear when) and returned to the USA, not known where to either, but he has been keeping a low public profile. This was noted online and there was a post about it at http://daattorah.blogspot.com/2010/11/video-guma-aguiar-talks-about-his.html : "Video: Guma Aguiar Talks About his Breakdown" (November 23, 2010) with a link to a Chabad publication that in turn links to a recent interview to an Israeli TV channel, see Video: Guma Aguiar Talks About his Breakdown from a 5 minute YouTube video "Guma Agayar Talks About Chabad" that has Guma saying he: "Feels good to be in Israel...I feel great...what happened to me last year could happen to anybody...I was under a lot of pressure... I needed some time to recover...one thing that has given me strength over the last 11 months has been Chabad and the Rebbe...if you are learning from the Rebbe how to be a better person...those things can help you deal with past tragedies that I have been through..."

Horav Mendlowitz n"y,

Regarding your taynos on R' Elchonon Wasserman going down with the Baranovitcher talmidim, a rov tells me he has gone digging in archives & seen correspondence between Rav Elchonon and the Kahn family in London, and the Sassoon family regarding an idea he had in summer 1939 to transfer the whole Baranovich yeshiva to Letchworth in England where the Sassoon's had an estate. He was quite serious about the idea but WW2 broke out before they could do it.

UOJ said...

I would very much like to see the correspondence.

Newly revealed said...

The correspondence is still privately in the hands of those families. I mistakenly assumed at first that the rov had gone digging in archives. He explains that he saw the letters in the early 1970s before he left a British yeshiva to come to BMG Lakewood.
