In a letter trying to convince you to help the Mosser Yitzchok Shuchat, dated November 20, 2011. Barry Sugar makes the following argument (amongst many to be discussed in future post).
“…Further, we have learned from statistics and documented cases that should Yitzchok be tried in New York, he would be subject to anti-Semitic, brutal and vicious assaults in prison.”
In ‘Among Righteous Men‘ (page 172), Matthew Shear writes:
…”[Aron] Hershkop wondered how long his brothers and friends would last in lockup. He gave Gadi a few weeks, maybe a month, but the rest? Dicey. Six Yids in yarmulkes and thick beards. Might as well plaster targets to their backs.
For months now, long before the grand jury came down with its indictment—long before the civil lawsuit was served—Hershkop had attempted to use every ounce of his considerable political sway to get Huebner to back off. He had spoken to members of the Jewish Community Council, pleaded with cops and liaisons with City Hall, requested audiences with the most senior of the Chabad rabbonim, and thus far, he had gotten mostly lip service. Sure, moderates regarded the messianists of 749 as a nuisance at best, and they agreed that Huebner’s involvement in the criminal trial was disgraceful, but what could be done? Huebner was his own man, they told Hershkop. He would get his comeuppance, in this world or another. Be patient.
Hershkop thought of the computer printout that Ben Lifshitz had hung over his computer desk: “When a good man is hurt, all who would be called good must suffer with him.” But Euripides hadn’t understood Hasidic culture, how messed up things could get, how two-faced people could be. He made suffering sound noble. In Hershkop’s experience, it was not noble. It was excruciating—a dirty business.”
The Hypocrisy: Where do these Mossrim think the Shomrim Six were going to spend their prison sentence had they G-d forbid been found guilty? In Chayolei Hamelech, or where Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin is spending his time (like he’s in Kollel learning Torah)?
Where was the outcry two years ago?
There was no outcry. In fact the same people trying to convince you today to help this “poor husband and father”, the Mosser Yitzchok Shuchat, were praying, rejoicing, doing everything they possibly can (by applying political pressure etc…) to make sure that the Shomrim Six – Gadi Hershkop, Chaim Hershkop, Yehuda Hershkop, Nechemia Slatter, Benjamin Lifshitz and Zalman Pinson, (husbands, fathers, sons, volunteers, neighbors and friends) would be prosecuted and sent off to prison for 15 plus years. A prison where they would be subject to anti-Semitic, brutal and vicious assaults (and lets not forget the rape).
Were not these very same individuals praising the District Attorney Charles Hynes for prosecuting the Shomrim Six, two years ago? Where not these same individuals the very same people who claimed, “Let the jury decide”, “If their guilty then they deserve to go to jail”, “Let the justice system do it’s thing” etc…. Didn’t these same individuals distribute to our homes and posted on their web-sites (at the time the Shomrim Six were on trial), propaganda with the headline “THE VICTIMS WANT TO BE HEARD”? Read all the comments HERE, HERE and HERE.
What happened now? What changed? Two years ago Charles Hynes was a hero, a Jew lover and now all of a sudden hes an anti-Semite? Please somebody explain this to me!!!
Time Tells All:
I love time. As time passes more pieces of the puzzle are gathered and peoples true intentions are revealed.
The first and last time we heard from Barry Sugar and his phony organization ‘Jewish Leadership Council‘, was in 2008, four years ago. Barry Sugar became a “concerned citizen” only after Yitzchok Shuchat, a Shmira member, assaulted Andrew Charles and fled to Israel.
Barry Sugar took to the streets to “fight for justice”, as a result the then Deputy Inspector Frank Vega* was transfered to a different precinct. The new Inspector, Peter Simonetti took the criminal Shmira gang under his protection and proceeded with a vicious campaign of intimidation and harassment against Shomrim.
And thats when Barry Sugar vanished, disappeared, puff just like that he was gone.
* Vega had a great relationship with the Shomrim. This is something the CHJCC did not like and did everything they can to get rid of him and the Shomrim. Read more HERE.
Since 2008, many Jews have been viciously assaulted and wrongfully treated by the police department and yet there was no Barry Sugar, there was no ‘Jewish Leadership Council’, There was no ‘Crown Heights Jewish Community Council, inc., there were no letters, there was no Internet post, there was no taking to the streets in protest, our hero Barry Sugar was gone, dead!
Only to be resurrected on November 21, 2011 (after almost four years of silence), for who? For Shmira member Yitzchok Shuchat?
Does anybody see a pattern here or is it just me? Does anyone see an agenda here or is it just me?
Where was Barry Sugar, the CHJCC and Dov Hinkind these past four years? Where was he for all the victims of muggings, vicious attacks, police abuse and Mesira?
Where was the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council, inc. all these years? Where were they for all the victims of muggings, vicious attacks, police abuse and Mesira? Where was their letter of protest (against Mesira) and support for the Shomrim Six?
Where was Dov Hikind “the savor of the Jewish People”, for all those Crown Heights Jews who have been victims of muggings, vicious attacks, police abuse and Mesira since 2008? Where was he when Six Jews (fathers, husbands, sons etc…) where facing 15 plus years prison?
Why are they waking up now? Whats the Agenda?
Why are they so scared of Yitzchok Shuchat coming back to face justice?
Much Much More to Come.
