It’s about nostalgia. The French and the rest of them can’t get over the good old days when Jews could be rounded up and TRANSPORTED to Auschwitz.

Opinion: France and another roundup of Jews

 Paris conference just another attempt by Europeans to solve the 'Jewish Question'.


Honest, I thought they were kidding when I read that leaders from 70 countries were heading for Paris to once and for all solve “The Jewish Question.”

The meeting took place on Sunday and yes, it wasn’t put quite like that; they have it as a Paris Conference to solve the Israeli/Arab issue – as if they really have Israel’s best interests at heart. This is baloney. All they care about is some new trick to divide Israel out of existence. The paperwork has already been done.

First of all, 70 countries? How many bigots can you squeeze into one room? Apparently most of the world.

So that’s the story. They have nothing better to do than zoom in on six and a half million Jews at home in the Jewish State. That Obama is a part if this makes is doubly obnoxious.

Trump will have to fix this and pronto.

That these Jews live with nearly two million Arabs in the only democracy in the Middle East – never mind.

That the Arab/Israeli conflict is the least important issue facing the world at the moment – forget this too.

It’s about nostalgia. The French and the rest of them can’t get over the good old days when Jews could be rounded up and TRANSPORTED to Auschwitz.

The Wannsee Conference comes to mind and if you don’t know what happened there we’ll talk about it some other time.

Except that it was at Wannsee where Hitler’s top lieutenants got together to discuss how best to TRANSPORT Europe’s entire Jewish Population.

We know the result. No amount of diplomatic double-speak can hide the fact that this is the same Europe all over again.

Why am I bringing up Wannsee when more to the point, for me personally at least, I should be bringing up Vel’ d’Hiv. This was a French indoor bicycle stadium that was used by the French as a way station, a first stop toward transport to the death camps.

Jews brought there had no food, no water, no air, no pity, no hope. They had nothing but horror. (Drancy was another and actually the first transport stop.)

The history books have it as the Vel’ d’Hiv Roundup, or The Roundup of Paris, but my family needs no history book to know what happened.

Over a period of two days and nights, July 16/17, 1942, more than 13,000 Jews were rounded up for transport – among them 4,000 children and infants.

The Gestapo were delighted. They had asked for only about half that number. The French had never been so efficient.

Our home was Toulouse. This was the Free Zone according to Vichy. Free Zone?

“Not at all,” says Sarah. “The Gestapo were all over the place. They were directing traffic on my way to school – in German.”

Jews were being picked off along the streets. Everybody waited for the knock on the door. We were next…and all of it happened awfully fast.

One day you’re a proper citizen of France surrounded by hospitable Christian neighbors. Next day you’re a criminal.

Altogether more than 70,000 Jews living in France were handed over to the Gestapo throughout the war.

My sister covers it in her memoir “Sarah and Abraham.” I tell it in my memoir “Escape From Mount Moriah.”

The film “The Sorrow and the Pity” documents France’s shame. Alain Delon tells it well in the movie drama “Mr. Klein.”

So this is a big story and it is nothing new. It is simply happening again. Once again the nations are disturbed.

They are disturbed by the fact that the Jewish people can’t be rounded up for transport. It used to be so simple.

Now the Jews have a home – Israel. This is what irks them and here they come again to fix their “Jewish Problem.”

So I have a personal say in this and I say France’s shame will endure longer than a meeting on Sunday. This is a shame unforgivable and everlasting.

Ditto the rest of this heartless world.

Shearis Haplaita changed it's name to TI many years ago.

So the Board finally smartened up? What kind of huge scandal was finally the gorem that was worse than anything before? And this school has had a really, really notorious molester working there for many years! The molester was protected by Star K, Ner Yishmoel & the beis din who threatened all the victims & put in cherem the only victim with the courage to speak up. R' Dovid Cohen was threatened when he tried to mix in and they laugh off Rabbi Blau from YU as a clueless moderner after he tried to stop it.

Eisgrau is not stupid. Now he will map out where the T.I. video cameras are so he can molest unrecorded.

There is a thief in Flatbush who has been to simchos at Young Israel of Ave K maybe 100+ times. He lives a very jet set lifestyle of going to expensive resorts many times a year. He can't afford it but he is such a shallow wannabe that he even pays extra for the semi-private dining room because he wants the real rich guys like Leon Goldenberg & Rand to think that he is also rich.

So then how does he pay for all this?

He cheats in business. He chapps aus sales from competitors. He ships merchandise without being asked & hopes to get paid before the recipient figures out he wasn't the vendor who was supposed to sell them.

One time at a Young Israel of Ave K chassunah he followed the money bag around all night. When it was unattended for a minute at the head table he ran over to rummage through it & check out the contents. He zeroed in on a big thick envelope given by a rich dude that looked like a big wad of cash. He was lifting it up & down to see how heavy it was while raising his eyebrows & making facial expressions of pleasure.

Then he sends his wife home by herself & hides in a dark stairwell until almost everyone was gone. He comes charging out to grab the money bag out of someone's hand & heads to his car like an Olympic sprinter, dives almost head first into the driver's seat & takes off at a very high speed.


He obviously studied the layout of the place very well in anticipation of such an opportunity.

He came back 45 minutes later with the baloney excuse that he was guarding the money because it wasn't safe in there. Meanwhile the thick envelope disappeared.

An assifas rabbonim convened over this. They poskened he was already choshud for his behavior during the seudah and that grabbing the bag pins the blame on him for the missing envelope. They summoned big tough guy askonim to go intimidate him at home in front of his wife. The askonim chickened out, arguing that if he calls the police on them they are cooked because there wasn't enough proof in NY law that he committed the crime.

Did you hear about the interesting detail at the end of Luke Ford's profile of Eisgrau? Luke says that in 2005, someone who was not actually molested by Eisgrau but was angry on behalf of the victims walked into the mikva & crossed paths with Eisgrau who he proceeded to punch the heck out of.

Consider that the spa-side version of Yudi Kolko being turned into a punching bag at the bris mila in Woodridge.

Monsey said...

Eisgrau's son is being funded by a very nice but also very naive millionaire to run 2 yeshivos in Monsey, Cheder deMonsey & Bais haChinuch. Just like the achzar will not talk to his own sister as a way to cover up Totty's crimes, he is being a cruel bastard to mishpochos. He has been known to lie & exaggerate about supposed deficiencies in kids to keep them out of his yeshivos & by extension any other yeshivos. His latest cruel shtick is that even when kids were accepted & have a shadow he comes back at some point wanting to throw them out anyway. Bad stuff goes on that is way beyond a matter of opinion. The man is sick. And he is also paranoid that anyone might know about his history before Monsey.

Dr. Tuvya Chaim Charles Bungalow Putz Neuhoff said...

How does UOJ manage to attract all the lazy blog commentators who are always thin on details? It is very important that you identify exactly which Woodridge bungalow colony it was where Kolko was punched out. How am I supposed to conduct one of my world class surveys if I don't have this bungalow colony's coordinates?

I am against "Bedomayich chayee" punch outs of so called "molesters" of any kind!

Paul Mendlowitz said...

You think "Tuvya" is still talking to Belsky for advice?

Alfred E. Neuman said...

Well, R' Aron Schechter did tell Neuhoff to stop listening to Belsky around the time that he stopped updating his obnoxious blog. That disclosure was made by Neuhoff to his bungalow pal Gilligan Student. But just like Neuhoff's fake bakoshas mechila (which was driven by fear of his professional peers reading about him on UOJ), he is not really listening to R' Aron since he continued to leave the blog up.

Neuhoff is still trying to move up in the world after upgrading his Psy D to a PhD and leaving Shalom Task Farce to form his own company.

Does anyone know what protektzia Neuhoff used that Pinny Lipschutz appointed him as head of the new shrink roundtable in the Yated?

It's enough that the Yated already has the chinuch roundtable with all the participating Kolko protectors like Sherman, Hisiger & Bender. Plus there is the yenta shadchan roundtable.


The paper is now a virtual Mad Magazine with the added soapbox for Bungalow Putz Neuhoff!

That Flatbush Putz-Thief sounds a lot like Dudi S.

He stole at a YIAK wedding? Does the caterer Feuereisen know about that?

Hatzolas Nidchei Baltimore said...

I was really disgusted over that story floating around on blogs this past year of Eisgrau & his cousin the other molester Moshe Eisenman blackballing & driving a baal teshuva out of Baltimore with the slander that he was an ex-con murderer released from prison! All because they were afraid he might possibly have a problem with molesters!

Ding Ding Ding said...

It was indeed Dudi. The shvantz will beg, steal, do anything to pay for those vacations or his wife will eat him for breakfast. Even his friends will tell you.

Feuereisen really had his hands full that night because another slob showed up & stole several portions of the meals in foil pans to take home to fress for the next month with his family. He even emptied the Viennese table. When the slob got fingered he lawyered up with the crooked Agudah (of L) Fresser lawyer Benji (ex-brother in law of the jailed crook Prager) to claim that he takes food from simchos for aniyim. What chutzpah! As if aniyim are allowed to eat stolen food. But in any case it was proven the slob was eating it himself. Here's a hint of who the slob is. His initials are GW and his brother used to make pyramid scam sales pitches for Herbalife - from the bimah at Landau's shul!

Ringling Bros is supposedly going bankrupt after 150 years from slowing ticket sales. Is it any wonder when these freaks put on a three ring circus production for free in Flatbush?
