Jewish Civil War: Secular U.S. Jews Use Obama Administration to Bring Down Netanyahu Gov't

by Sol W Thursday, Aug. 06, 2009 at 1:36 PM

The Brooklyn/New Jersey rabbi money laundering prosecutions seek to turn the rabbis into witnesses against Irving Moskowitz, shut down his bingo empire, cut off funding for the Likud and religious parties, and bring down the Netanyahu government.

The pieces are coming together here. The conflict between those in the Jewish community who see religion, the Torah, and the covenant with G-d as the core of Judaism and Israel and those who do not so see it has erupted big time. This script leaves no doubt that it comes from studio Rohm Emmanuel, where we got "Obamacare."

The story begins in Israel where the secular/religious conlict has hit new highs with the conflict over opening the Karta parking garage on Shabatt , see http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3744786,00.html">Haredim, police clash in Jerusalem , and the gay shooting incident, see http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2009/aug/03/gay-shooting-tel-aviv">Gay shooting inflames debate in Israel.


The Obama Administration on July 23, 2009, charged with money laundering Rabbis "Eliahu Ben Haim of Long Branch, [New Jersey] the principal rabbi of Ohel Yaacob Synagogue in Deal; Saul Kassin of Congregation Zion synagogue in Brooklyn, who is considered the chief rabbi of the Syrian-Jewish community; Rabbi Edmund Nahum of Deal; and Mordechai Fish, a rabbi at Congregation Sheves Achim in Brooklyn." See http://www.njjewishnews.com/njjn.com/072309/njCorruptionProbe.html">NJ corruption probe nets rabbis in money laundering network

Acting United States Attorney Ralph Marra, Jr noted that the investigation had been going on for ten years. He did not explain why the government had chosen now to bring the charges.

The answer lies in East Jerusalem. Developer Irving Moskowitz is proceeding with a housing project for Israelis on the site of the Shepherd Hotel in Arab East Jerusalem See http://www.boomantribune.com/story/2009/7/27/15550/1035">Money Laundering I.M. and E-Jerusalem Settlements The link includes a photo of the hotel.

This housing project raises the ongoing conflict between those in Israel who seek expansion and destiny and those willing to accept the limits in the Bush/Obama Roadmap plan.

The Irving Moskowitz Foundation operates a bingo hall in Hawaiian Gardens, California. See http://www.moskowitzfoundation.org/index.html">Moskowitz Foundation The proceeds of the Bingo enterprise fund various religious groups and projects in Israel, including the Shas. See http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1102822.html">Sephardic yeshivas in Israel may lose big from New Jersey scandal.

In http://onlinejournal.com/artman/publish/article_4963.shtml">North Jersey: epicenter of 'Kosher Nostra' and Mossad activityWayne Madsen notes:

"In the criminal complaint against Rabbi Eliahu "Eli" Ben Haim of the Ohel Yaacob congregation in Deal, a co-conspirator only identified as "I.M.," who is based in Israel and was a principal source of cash for Ben Haim, is cited. It is odd that "I.M." is only identified by initials when two other co-conspirators of Ben Haim are identified by their full names: Schmulik Cohen of Brooklyn and Arye Weiss, also of Brooklyn.

Madsen does not identify "I.M." as Irving Moskowitz.

"Defendant BEN HAIM also mentioned that he owed another individual $495,000. This individual, according to defendant BEN HAIM, had wired money from Hong Kong to Israel, and stated that `he has money in Hong Kong from his -- the kickbacks from the factories.' Defendant BEN HAIM also further described the activities of Coconspirator I.M. in the following terms: `the head contact's in Israel . . . He has different people, he has, . . . he has a hundred cus-, no customer in New York [u/i] [unintelligible] money in Israel [u/i] real estate investments, they, they want to hide their money. They don't want it to show. So they give the cash here to him and he gives me the cash . . . You see the merry-go-round? This guy's been doing it for 20, 30 years.' Defendant BEN HAIM also indicated that he would pick up cash, as coordinated by Coconspirator I.M., at
locations in Brooklyn. The CW [confidential witness] offered to pick up the cash that defendant BEN HAIM anticipated would be available to him the following week."

"The complaint provides even greater details of "I.M.'s" money laundering activities:

"Defendant BEN HAIM told the CW about `customers from two, three years ago that are calling me,' and indicated that `[t]hat's a signal that the market is tight.' Defendant BEN HAIM also discussed his source for cash, Coconspirator I.M., and stated that he spoke to Coconspirator I.M. `[e]very day - every other day.' Referring to Coconspirator I.M., defendant BEN HAIM then asked the CW `[d]id you know that he had me in the last 4 years send out wires every time to a different place in the world to a different name? It's unbelievable. I never saw anything like it.' When the CW asked whether defendant BEN HAIM was referring to different locations in only Israel, defendant BEN HAIM replied `[n]o, all over the world . . . All over the world. From Australia to New Zealand to Uganda. I mean [u/i] every country imaginable. Turkey, you can't believe it. . . . All different names. It's never the same name. . . . Switzerland, everywhere, France, everywhere, Spain. . . . China, Japan.' Defendant BEN HAIM also explained that the market for cash was tight `only in the beginning of the year and the end of the year.'"

"It appears that the FBI was being careful about naming "I.M." due to his extensive contacts from Israel to countries around the world, an indication that "I.M.," unlike the rabbis and the New Jersey politicos, is a big fry who is laundering large sums of money, possibly from gambling operations, through synagogues and Jewish charities.

The FBI careful about not naming "I.M.?" How could anyone knowledgeable of Israel affairs not recognize Irving Moskowitz from this description, even without the initials? And how could anyone so knowledgeable also not know that Moskowitz gets his cash from a completely legal bingo enterprise in Southern California.

Madsen continues and states the crux of this whole story:

WMR has learned from a reliable source that the identity of "I.M,," if revealed, would serve as a body blow to the Likud government of Netanyahu and his major coalition partners, Yisrael Beiteinu of extreme right-wing Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and the ultra-orthodox Shas Party. The revelation of "I.M.'s" identity, we are told, will also provide encouragement to the Palestinians to stand their ground against Israeli encroachment in east Jerusalem and the West Bank.

The plot is clear. Obama arrests the rabbis and forces them to testify against Moskowitz. Obama then gets Moskowitz and the government seizes his bingo hall in Hawaiian Gardens. The money flow to Israel stops, the Likud, Shas, and other religious parties go bankrupt, the Netanyahu government falls, and secular Jews finally succeed in ending religious influence on the government in Israel and establishing a fully secular society there.

Rohm Emmanuel should know the individuals involved here well enough to know that this plan has no chance of success.
