Israel readies forces for strike on
ISRAEL’S armed forces have been ordered by Ariel
Sharon, the prime minister, to be ready by the end of March for possible strikes
on secret uranium enrichment sites in Iran, military sources have revealed.
Just in time for
The order came after Israeli intelligence warned the government that Iran was
operating enrichment facilities, believed to be small and concealed in civilian
Iran’s stand-off with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) over
nuclear inspections and aggressive rhetoric from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the
Iranian president, who said last week that Israel should be moved to Europe, are
causing mounting concern.
The crisis is set to come to a head in early March, when Mohamed El-Baradei,
the head of the IAEA, will present his next report on Iran. El-Baradei, who
received the Nobel peace prize
yesterday, warned that the world was “losing patience” with Iran.
War is Peace
A senior White House source said the threat of a nuclear Iran was moving to
the top of the international agenda and the issue now was: “What
next?” That question would have to be answered in the next few months, he
Defence sources in Israel believe the end of March to be the “point
of no return” after which Iran will have the technical expertise to
enrich uranium in sufficient quantities to build a nuclear warhead in two to
“Israel — and not only Israel — cannot accept a nuclear Iran,” Sharon
warned recently. “We have the ability to deal with this and we’re making all
the necessary preparations to be ready for such a situation.”
The order to prepare for a possible attack went through the Israeli defence
ministry to the chief of staff. Sources inside special forces command confirmed
that “G” readiness — the highest stage — for an operation was announced
Gholamreza Aghazadeah, head of the Atomic Organisation of Iran, warned
yesterday that his country would produce nuclear fuel. “There is no doubt that
we have to carry out uranium enrichment,” he said.
He promised it would not be done during forthcoming talks with European
negotiators. But although Iran insists it wants only nuclear energy, Israeli
intelligence (Iraq weapons of mass discussion) has
concluded it is deceiving the world and has no intention of giving up what it
believes is its right to develop nuclear weapons.
A “massive” Israeli intelligence operation has been underway since Iran
was designated the “top priority for 2005”, according to security sources.
The same Mossad of the WTC attack
Cross-border operations and signal intelligence from a base established by
the Israelis in northern Iraq are said to have identified a number of Iranian
uranium enrichment sites unknown to the the IAEA.
Since Israel destroyed the Osirak nuclear reactor in Iraq in 1981, “it has
been understood that the lesson is, don’t have one site, have 50 sites”, a
White House source said.

shame shemborg collective
If a military operation is approved, Israel will use air and ground forces
against several nuclear targets in the hope of stalling Tehran’s nuclear
programme for years, according to Israeli military sources.
It is believed Israel would call on its top special forces brigade, Unit 262
— the equivalent of the SAS — and the F-15I strategic 69 Squadron, which can
strike Iran and return to Israel without refuelling
“If we opt for the military strike,” said a source,
“it must be not less than 100% successful. It will resemble the destruction of
the Egyptian air force in three hours in June 1967.”
Aharon Zeevi Farkash, the Israeli military intelligence chief, stepped up the
pressure on Iran this month when he warned Israel’s parliament, the Knesset,
that “if by the end of March the international community is unable to refer
the Iranian issue to the United Nations security council, then we can say the
international effort has run its course”.
Hahahahha is already has
The March deadline set for military readiness also stems from fears that Iran is
improving its own intelligence-gathering capability. In October it launched its
first satellite, the Sinah-1, which was carried by a Russian space launcher.
“The Iranians’ space programme is a matter of deep concern to us,” said
an Israeli defence source. “If and when we launch an attack on several Iranian
targets, the last thing we need is Iranian early warning received by
Russia last week signed an estimated $1 billion contract — its largest
since 2000 — to sell Iran advanced Tor-M1 systems capable of destroying guided
missiles and laser-guided bombs from aircraft.
“Once the Iranians get the Tor-M1, it will make our life much more
difficult,” said an Israeli air force source. “The installation of this
system can be relatively quick and we can’t waste time on this one.”
The date set for possible Israeli strikes on Iran also coincides with
Israel’s general election on March 28, prompting speculation that Sharon may
be sabre-rattling for votes.
Benjamin Netanyahu, the frontrunner to lead Likud into the elections, said
that if Sharon did not act against Iran, “then when I form the new Israeli
government, we’ll do what we did in the past against Saddam’s reactor, which
gave us 20 years of tranquillity”.
TEHRAN MINISTER MET MILITANTS BEFORE NEW OFFENSIVE
Iran’s foreign minister met leading figures from three Islamic militant
groups to co-ordinate a united front against Israel days before a recent
escalation of attacks against Israeli targets shattered fragile ceasefires with
Lebanon and the Palestinians, writes Hugh Macleod in Damascus.
The minister, Manouchehr Mottaki, held talks with leaders of Hamas, Islamic
Jihad and Hezbollah in Damascus on November 15.
Among those who attended the meeting were Khaled Meshaal, the Hamas leader,
and a deputy leader of Islamic Jihad, which claimed responsibility for last
Monday’s suicide bombing of a shopping mall in Netanya that killed five
Ahmed Jibril, leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-
General Command, was also present. “We all confirmed that what is going on in
occupied Palestine is organically connected to what is going on in Iraq, Syria,
Iran and Lebanon,” said Jibril.
Seven days after the talks, Hezbollah fired a volley of rockets and mortars
at Israeli targets, sparking the fiercest fighting between the two sides since
Israel’s withdrawal from south Lebanon five years ago.

Gov't Officials Deny Plan to Strike Iran

By Hillel Fendel
||The Sunday Times in London reports that Prime
Minister Sharon is preparing for a possible strike on secret uranium
enrichment sites in Iran. Israeli officials deny.
Quoting unnamed military sources, the report states that Israeli intelligence
warned its government that Iran was operating small enrichment facilities
concealed in civilian locations. The Times says that Sharon has ordered the
military to prepare for a possible strike by the end of March.
Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom and sources in Sharon's office deny the Times
report. "Israel is dealing with the Iranian issue only with diplomatic
tools," Shalom said. Sharon staffers said the paper's report is totally
It is known that Iran will be able to build a nuclear warhead 2-4 year after it
receives the technical expertise to enrich sufficient quantities of uranium -
known as the "point of no return." No country will be able to bomb the
reactor once this point is reached, for fear that the radioactive fallout will
harm an unknown number of thousands of civilians.
The question is, when will this point be reached? The Times says that Israeli
defense sources believe it will be the end of March.
It has been noted that this is "coincidentally" the time when Israeli
elections will be held. MK Yuval Shteinitz (Likud), chairman of the Knesset
Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, was asked about the timing on Army Radio
today. He said, "I believe that in issues like this that truly are
life-and-death questions for Israel, no Prime Minister, including Sharon [of the
rival party Kadima - ed.] would take action out of electoral considerations.
Neither him nor any other Prime Minister."
Shteinitz said, "I refuse to relate to what Israel can or should do
[regarding Iran] on the military plane. Regarding other countries, like the
United States, certainly there is a military option against Iran... The Iranians
feel vulnerable to an air strike; they have deployed air defenses around all
their nuclear sites."
"The Iranian threat is a global one," Shteinitz said, "and not
only upon Israel, but against the West and entire world. It
is therefore desirable that the enlightened world, led by the US, take care of
this threat. The world is doing too little, too late. Iran has
passed the half-way mark and is coming close to nuclear weapons. The world has
sufficed up to now with diplomacy and rhetoric."
Just last week, Prime Minister Sharon said, "I think it's clear that we
cannot allow a situation in which Iran becomes a nuclear power... This is an
international problem, and not just ours."
Two days ago, U.S. Undersecretary for Arms Control and International Security
Robert Joseph said that Iran is closing in on nuclear weapon production and that
even U.N. sanctions may not deter it. He said the Iranian government is
"very aggressive, very determined to develop nuclear weapons." Iran
claims it is seeking only civilian nuclear power, but "we know this is not
the case," Joseph said.
They know they covet Babylon Proper from the Nile to
the Euphrates and they could care less how many "Goyim" Will die for
the Whoredom's Fornication.
Mohammed El-Baradei, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA),
said on Friday, "the international community is losing patience" with
Iran's nuclear program. Speaking in Oslo just a day before receiving his Nobel
Peace Prize, El-Baradei said he hopes that the issue will be cleared up by the
time he presents his next report on Iran in March. He still feels that diplomacy
must be employed to solve the problem.
By Noahide Peace they shall destroy wonderfully
IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz does not agree. He told members of the
foreign press a week ago that he does not believe American and European
diplomatic pressures on Iran regarding the nuclear enrichment efforts will bear
"If a military operation is approved," the Sunday Times reports,
"Israel will use air and ground forces against several nuclear targets in
the hope of stalling Tehran’s nuclear program for years, according to Israeli
military sources." The paper also quotes IDF Intelligence Chief Gen. Aharon
Ze'evi-Farkash as having warned the Knesset this month that “if by the end of
March the international community is unable to refer the Iranian issue to the
United Nations security council, then we can say the international effort has
run its course.”
Isa:9:12: The Syrians before, and the Philistines behind; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
Isa:17:3: The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the LORD of hosts.
sanctions will destabilize world
Syria's President Bashar Assad warned in an interview broadcast Sunday that
an attempt to impose sanctions against his nation would destabilize the region
and the entire world.
Assad was speaking to Russia's Rossiya state television before this week's
release of a UN report on progress in the investigation into the assassination
of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
The Syrian president again declared his country's innocence in the murder,
and said the UN probe was politicized.
"The Middle East is the heart of the world, and Syria is the heart of
the Middle East," Assad said. "If the situation in Syria and Iraq
isn't good, the whole region will become unstable, and the entire world will pay
Beirut blast kills anti-Syrian MP Monday, December 12, 2005
BEIRUT: A powerful explosion rocked an area east of Jordan's capital city
Monday, killing at least three people and injuring more than 10, including
anti-Syrian MP and journalist Jubran Tueini, police said.
The explosion took place in Mukles. Shattered glass covered the streets
while black smoke was seen over the area. Witnesses said the force of the
blast hurled a bulletproof car off the road.
The blast comes three days after a bomb, targetting a Hezbollah official,
went off Friday in the eastern city of Baal-beck.
There were, however, no casualties.
Tueini, editor-in-chief of the daily ‘An Nahar’ and a critic of Syria,
was elected in the elections last May and June.

||MK Chanan Porat, a former NRP Knesset Member
and a National Union founder, says the rabbis must become more actively
involved in removing the disputes blocking a merger between the two
Speaking with Arutz-7's Yigal Shok on Thursday, Porat - himself a rabbi and
Torah scholar - said, "The argument over who will
head the party is that which is currently holding up the unification. The
claims that the issues revolve around 'difficulties in formulating the agenda,'
and the Land of Israel's weight in the agenda, are merely spins for the
NRP sources have claimed that the National Union (Sharons,
Aholibah, Kadima) is placing too much emphasis on the struggle for the
Land of Israel [Eretz Yisrael] for their taste, and that the NRP wishes to give
more prominence to social and educational issues.
However, a talk with a close aide to NRP leader Zevulun Orlev [pictured above,
right] Moshe Inbar, revealed that the personnel issue is the problem. For one
complexity, the NRP originally had six MKs, while the current make-up of the
National Union originally had four. The situation reversed itself when two NRP
members joined the National Union. The NRP now demands equal representation in
"We are coming with clean hands," Inbar told Arutz-7 today. "We
say that there must be a survey carried out as to who - Benny [Elon of the
National Union, pictured above left] or Zevulun [Orlev] - will bring more
mandates to the joint list, and go according to its findings. Whoever is not #1,
will receive the top ministerial portfolio if we join the government - hopefully
the Education Ministry."
A-7: "Since Orlev wants the Education Ministry so badly, why doesn't he
just agree straight out to be #2 and be the party's candidate for Education
Inbar: "Because he wants what's best for the joint list. Perhaps if he
heads the list, it would bring in more votes... We are coming with clean hands
and without ultimatums; no one can say that our demands are not fair..."
A-7: "Certainly you demand surveys and equality, because you are coming to
this partnership with less to offer. You have fewer MKs, and less support in the
polls, and the perception that you were less opposed to the disengagement. The
National Union is coming with demands because they have more to offer this
Inbar: "It depends how you look at it. The 2 MKs who joined the National
Union received NRP votes, and certain sectors are very pleased with the way the
NRP tried to stop the disengagement..."
Arutz-7 then spoke with Asi Talmon, a close aide to National Union MK Tzvi
Hendel, who said the following:
"Look, it was clear all along that Benny Elon would head the list. We
simply will not agree to a survey [to determine the #1 spot]; it will not be
conclusive, it will include all sorts of voters from the left and right, and if
it shows that three candidates get 10% each and Orlev gets 12%, then he'll say
he should be the leader. But the fact is that many National Union voters simply
will not vote for this joint list if Orlev heads it. He has spoken in favor of
Avigdor Lieberman's plan [of trading parts of
Arab-populated Israel for parts of Judea and Samaria], he wants to join a
future government at almost any cost, he is associated with the uprooting of
Jewish communities [because the NRP remained in the Sharon government until
November 2004]. In addition, we ran a sharp campaign against him demanding that
he leave the government. For all these reasons, he simply cannot lead our joint
list, and the NRP knows this."
Rabbi Porat said that since a unification of the parties
is so important, the rabbis must be more involved. He said he turned to
the Chief Rabbis of Ramat Gan, Beit El and Kiryat Arba - Rabbis Yaakov Ariel,
Zalman Melamed and Dov Lior - and asked them not to suffice with merely
"calling" for a unification. "You must stand with your finger on
the pulse," he said he told them, "and if the talks get stuck - not
because of agenda problems but because of people - then, please, take the reins
and respond to the request of the public and the MKs, and serve as arbitrators. The
public will not forgive us if a merger does not result in light of the bitter
national and social reality facing us."
Referendum and they all cried out "Crucify Jesus
and Give us the Robber Moshiach"
Porat related to disputes over the agenda of the joint list. "Do they want
the party platform not to state clearly that we totally
negate the establishment of a Palestinian state, or the uprooting of Jewish
communities? If they want to humiliate or hide or
nullify the matter of Eretz Yisrael, we will not agree - and I don't
think the NRP will agree either."
"Given the current reality," he said, "in which [Ariel Sharon's]
Kadima [Forward] party is going backwards, and the Likud is in a daze, it is
important that there be one party that speaks clearly about
the importance of Eretz Yisrael... and our adherence to it."
"The worst thing is," Porat emphasized, "is that if the social
and educational agenda is taken advantage of to reduce the value of Eretz
Yisrael, the educational agenda is also reduced, because then it is simply being
used. Teaching love of the Land is like teaching love of the Nation and the
Torah (Talmud Bavli Mishnah Torah of satan) ; these
are three things that are one."
In a related story, the 5th and 10th spots on the National Religious Party list
will be reserved for a woman and Youth Wing member, respectively. MK Gila
Finkelstein has announced that she will run again for the woman's spot, and
Chaim Falk is all but guaranteed to receive the Youth spot.

||First Israel, then France, Denmark and
Belgium - and now Australia. Muslims rioted for a second night in Sydney
and nearby suburbs Monday, attacking resident and police and smashing
The latest "Intifada" began down under with a group of Lebanese
immigrants beating two life guards on Sydney's Cronulla beach Sunday. The Beach
is the site of a memorial for victims of the Islamic terror attacks in Bali, in
which six local women were murdered. Thousands of
Australian youths then flocked to the beach and began indiscriminately attacking
anyone they believed to be Arab immigrants. About 300,000 Muslims live in
Australia, the majority in large cities.
Soon after, Arab youth began attacking police and smashing cars around the
Sydney area. Thirty-one people were injured, 28 arrested and approximately one
hundred cars were smashed during the night. Hundreds of young Muslims then
gathered near the Lakemba Mosque in southern Sydney, readying to travel to
Maroubra Beach where up to 300 locals were reportedly waiting
for an arranged fight until the police intervened.
Monday night, Arab mobs descended on Cronulla, stabbing a woman, assaulted
several passers-by and smashing shops around the area. Police told Australian
news agencies that there were hundreds of armed men in the Muslim crowd as well.
Meanwhile, crowds of local Muslims surrounded mosques, flashing handguns before
news cameras and saying they were merely responding to information they had that
local gangs intended to attack their place of worship.
There are also reports of text messages circulating within
the Arab community calling for revenge attacks in Cronulla next Sunday and
police are still searching for an Arab man who stabbed another man in the back
Sunday night. The Australian Associated Press reported that gunshots were heard
near Cronulla beach Monday, but police could not confirm the report.
The main focus - in the aftermath of Sunday's events - was on the attacks
launched by local Australians, including drunken surfers and white-supremacists,
on fellow citizens of Arab descent. Australian Prime Minister John Howard
condemned the attacks on the Arabs at the Sydney beach. "Attacking people
on the basis of their race, their appearance, their ethnicity, is totally
unacceptable and should be repudiated by all Australians irrespective of their
own background and their politics," Howard said.

Iran has successfully tested surface-to-sea missiles with a range of 110
kilometers (68 miles), Iranian state television reported Monday.

have the capacity to destroy a warship.
The report did not say whether the missiles could carry nuclear warheads.

of the Israeli Ministry of Truth
At least three people inside the car were killed, their bodies charred beyond
recognition, witnesses said.
A previously unknown group later in the day claimed
responsibility for the attack, although there was no way
to verify the authenticity of the statement.
In a statement faxed to Reuters bearing no insignia or letterhead, the group
calling itself "Strugglers for the Unity and Freedom of the Levant",
said the same fate awaited other opponents of "Arabism" in Lebanon.
"We have broken the pen of Gebran Tueni and shut his mouth forever and
transformed al-Nahar into a very dark night," it said, referring to
the newspaper Tueni published.
"We have succeeded today again in liquidating another of the mouthpieces
that have ... spread their poison and lies and not stopped despite the warnings
we have sent him time and again."

Lebanese Druze leader and anti-Syrian MP Walid Jumblatt confirmed Tueni's death
and accused Syria of killing him. Jumblatt's opinion is shared
by many in the Middle East.
Asked if he was jumping the gun by accusing Syria,
he told Al Jazeera television: "This is my reading of the situation. We've
had enough killings, enough assassinations. [Tueni] was targeted because he was
the voice of freedom, him and others like him."
Syria said later that the timing of the explosion
indicated an intention to damage Damascus' reputation.
In a statement carried by its official news agency SANA, Syria denounced the
"bombing that took place in the Mekalis suburb of Beirut...
whose timing is intended to direct accusations to Syria."
"Syria is pained over the bombings and assassinations that target the
security of Lebanon," said the news agency.
SANA said those who level such accusations against Syria
"are completing the work of the criminals who carry out bombings in Lebanon
and targeting Syria, Lebanon and the truth."

UN probe of Hariri murder slow going; Lebanon asks
Security Council to look into Tueni killing, too
Monday was also the day the United Nations released its report on the probe into
the assassination of another prominent Lebanese politician, Rafik Hariri. The report
on the investigation headed by Detlev Mehlis into Hariri's February murder named
five Syrian officials as suspects in the crime, and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's
brother-in-law may also be implicated.
Mehlis' report also crticized Syria for foot-dragging during the investigation,
and called for the probe to be extended another six months.
Following the Tueni murder, Lebanon's Prime Minister Fouad Siniora asked the UN
Security Council to also investigate that incident.
"We have no option but to confront the criminals until we defeat
them," Siniora said, adding that he would not bow to intimidation.
Lebanon has been rocked by a series of mysterious
explosion targeting anti-Syrian figures in recent months. Media reports
have linked the bombings to the investigation into Hariri's assassination as an
attempt to derail the probe.
A deafening explosion
The bodies of Tueni, 48, his driver and a bodyguard were found in the car,
charred beyond recognition. Assault rifles and military bags laid beside them
inside the wrecked vehicle.
Security sources said a parked car packed with up to 100 kg of dynamite, more
than earlier reported, was detonated by remote control as Tueni's car passed by.
Tueni's car was hurled from the road and landed in a different street dozens of
metres away.Shattered glass covered the streets while a heavy black smoke was
seen bilowing over the area.
"I heard a deafening explosion and when I looked up I saw a car flying in
the air," one passerby said.
Several cars were set ablaze and nearby shops and buildings suffered some damage
in the blast. Police and soldiers cordoned off the area as rescue workers
ferried casualties to hospitals. Some 38 people were reportedly wounded in the
The news triggered an outpouring of grief for Tueni, a respected columnist and
the general manager of Al-Nahar, the country's leading newspaper.
Bells of Orthodox churches tolled in the Christian quarter
of Ashrafieh, Tueni's constituency. Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora
called an emergency meeting of top security officials and asked the Cabinet to
convene later Monday.

Analysis: An uncomplicated murder in the Lebanese capital
By Zvi Barel, Haaretz Correspondent
If there ever was a Lebanese
political-intellectual persona who took upon himself the struggle for
Lebanese independence from Syrian occupation, it was Gebran Tueni, the
editor and manager of Al Nahar newspaper. Because of this he was
murdered, apparently at the hands of Syrian intelligence sources or someone
acting in their name.
Although murdering such a heavyweight of the political opposition precisely
on the day on which the United Nations publishes its report into the murder
of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri seems to be skewed logic on
Syria's part, the reason is actually quite uncomplicated.
Syria - which is apparently also behind the murder of the journalist Samir
Kasir (another Al-Nahar staffer), the attempted assassination of
female journalist Mai Shidik, and the murder of the head of the Communist
party, not to mention being likely responsible for the killing of Hariri -
has been operating on two tracks since its pullout from Lebanon. On the one
hand, Damascus is attempting to build ties with the new Lebanese government
headed by Fuad Siniora.
On the other hand, Syria continues to take
revenge on those it sees as responsible for its poor international image.
Tueni was a primary target in Syria's revenge mission. In the first weeks
following Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon, Tueni began convincing campaign
against the continued presence of Syria in Lebanon.
He strongly criticized the Lebanese government for not acting with
determination following Israel's withdrawal to establish sovereignty
throughout the entire country, notably along the Lebanon-Israel border.
In his articles, Tueni also attacked Hezbollah and blamed the militant
organization for unnecessarily entangling Lebanon in conflict and thus
granting Israel rationale for continued military strikes.
Tueni, who saw the continued presence of Syria as hindering independent
Lebanese action, hosted columnists from the Syrian opposition who found Al
Nahar a welcoming forum.
Syria was unable to forgive Tueni for the fact that his newspaper in 2000
published a petition by intellectuals identified with the Syrian opposition
calling for reforms in Syrian rule.
Syria is also unable to forget that Al Nahar editorials called for an
international investigation into the Hariri assassination and supported UN
Resolution 1559 calling for Syrian departure from Lebanon.
The publications in Al Nahar were a powerful inspiration for
anti-Syrian and pro-Syrian activists who filled the streets of Beirut and
clashed with Lebanese security forces.
Finally, Al Nahar can take credit for initiating a string of events
that led to Syria's eventual departure from Lebanon.
The considerable number of threats on his life that he received over the
years deterred neither Tueni nor his father, veteran journalist Ghassan
Tueni, who returned to Lebanon on Monday to attend his son's funeral.
The Lebanese government now has no choice but to respond to Tueni's murder, which
has brought Lebanese-Syrian relations to a nearly intolerable situation.

the Illuminated Masters of HELL
The question now is how tightly Lebanon can draw
connections between the UN report on the Hariri murder and Monday's Tueni
It is also unclear how
determined the Americans are to place sanctions on Syria
for what appears to be Damascus' failure to cooperate with international
investigators probing the Hariri assassination.

Righteous Gentile status sought for Ukrainian
By Yossi Melman
and Asaf Carmel
A group of Holocaust survivors and their
relatives have petitioned Yad Vashem (Holocaust)
to ask that Ukrainian priest Andrei Sheptyts'kyi be
recognized as a Righteous Gentile. The petitioners credit Sheptyts'kyi,
who headed the Ukrainian church at the time, with saving hundreds of Jews,
mainly children who were hidden in church institutions. Nevertheless,
Yad Vashem has thus far refused to grant him the title, on the grounds that
being a Ukrainian nationalist, he initially supported the Nazi invasion.
The petition was sent in response to an article in Haaretz Magazine earlier
this year, in which a Yad Vashem spokeswoman said the institute would
reconsider if a new request were submitted.

As Narnia film hits
J. the Jewish news weekly of Northern California
uneasy with strong Christian theme
December 7, 2005
SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 6 (JTA) — A potential mega-blockbuster film, financed
by a fervent Christian and bursting with Christian overtones, is being
mass-marketed to — guess who? — Christians.
Judeo-Churchians who are not of Jesus the Christ
Church groups are buying up whole theater showings
just like Daddy Warbucks did for Annie. Advance screenings are being
held for pastors and ministers, who have given the film
their blessing, literally. Catholic publishing companies are putting
out companion guides.
These are NOT of Jesus the Creator
And the Jewish community is … well, no one knows quite what to think.
That’s because the film in question isn’t Mel Gibson’s “The
Passion of the Christ.” It’s “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion,
the Witch and the Wardrobe,” the special-effects laden adaptation of British
author C.S. Lewis’ classic 1950 children’s book.
The $250 million film, which opens Dec. 9, was produced by the owner of the
San Francisco Examiner, the right-wing
evangelical billionaire Philip Anschutz, who also owns Walden
Right Wing of the Hassidim, Sanhedrin of witchcraft
unto the Dragon, who say their god is the god of the jews and the jews say
their God has no Christ, but a soon to be "Revealed" Moahiach the
Walt Disney Co. also helped, especially on the distribution end.
In fact, many of the same firms that so successfully recruited whole
congregations to attend showings of “The Passion” have been contracted
again for “Lion.”
Mel's Noahide Tale the Dolorus Catholicos Passion
The re-oiling and firing up of the machinery that pulled Christians into
theaters and made “The Passion” a huge hit, as well as “Lion’s”
Christian overtones, have given some Jews
Rabbi Judah Dardik was hooked on “Lion” when he
read it years ago as a day-school student. He borrowed the entire
series from his older sister and devoured them.
Mt:23:8: But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren
It was only years later that he was told it was steeped in Christian
allegories. He was “surprised and embarrassed I hadn’t realized. I felt
duped,” Dardik said.
Rereading the series, he saw more and more allegories and could never
appreciate the books as mere fiction again. Now he sees them as theology —
beautifully written theology.
Fairy Tale Theology the "Judeo-Churchinsanity"
have accepted even as they have ACCEPTED THE "REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY"
OF THE HASSIDIC PHARISEES AND SAY THEIR GOD IS THE GOD OF THE JEWS WHO SAY
JESUS IS IN HELL BOILING IN HUMAN EXCREMENT. Yes, these say that he is
LORD Christ, but they deceive many
“Should Jewish children see this movie or read the books? I’m unsure.
My personal jury is still out,” said Dardik, the spiritual leader of Beth
Jacob Congregation in Oakland, Calif. “I read them … clearly it didn’t
affect my personal theology.”
He added, “I haven’t seen the movie, but I
wouldn’t be surprised if they fleshed out the Christianity a bit more to be
satisfying to the Christian audience. That’s the part that’s most
disconcerting to me. I also have concerns about the marketing. Hollywood has a
way of being very in-your-face.”
Like Gibson, Anschutz is a figure who makes many wary. Walden Media in
recent years began creating Christian-friendly films short on sexual content
or profanity — drug abuse and philandering were trimmed from last year’s
Ray Charles biopic “Ray,” for example.
Anschutz also is an outspoken evangelical, who was attracted to the Narnia
tales for the same reason others in the business were repelled — its
There is no message of the LIVING GOD in any tale
But “Lion” is no “Passion.” Compared to the extremely negative
reaction “Passion” garnered from Jewish organizations before, during and
after its release, the marketing of Christian allegory as popular
entertainment in “Lion” has created hardly a ripple.
The story is based on a book many people read as children, only to learn
later that “Lion” and the six other books in Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia
series were full of Christian allegories.
Jesus who is Christ needs no ALLEGORY, dissection or
The latent nature of “Lion’s” Christian message, and the fact that
one can be completely oblivious yet still enjoy the story, allows the film’s
producers to promote “Lion” on two levels: one method for avowedly
Christian audiences and one for everyone else.
While the uplifting Christian message is pitched to pastors and church
groups, the theatrical trailer features a dazzling array of special effects
created by Peter Jackson’s WETA — the company the New Zealand-based
director founded to tackle “Lord of the Rings” (Mordechai
and Esther of "Purim Fame") — and huge battle scenes.
Disney is allocating about 5 percent of its
promotional budget to wooing Christian groups. Peter Sealey, a
marketing professor at the University of California Berkeley’s Haas School
of Business and the former president of marketing and distribution for
Columbia Pictures, describes this as “a very effective use of that money …
that audience does not have as many films as it wants.”
Sealey, however, saw “duplicity” in the way Disney is shying away from
mentioning Lewis’ Christian message in its general publicity materials. In a
16-page “Narnia Educator Guide” that Sealey found on the film’s Web
site, religion and Christianity aren’t mentioned even
IN HA NAME ah ha Judeo-Jaysoooooooose, so hep me Gawd
“The issue is secular audiences. Will they appreciate seeing a religious
message without knowing it?” he asked. Disney “should make a statement,
they should let people know. The lion is resurrected. … It’s a great piece
of entertainment and you can enjoy it if you’re Christian or not. However,
the underpinnings of the work reflect the New Testament.”
Can't have that in apostate Amaraka of satan's
Noahide notions, now, can we?
Once it’s known that Lewis was a theologian who wrote with a Christian
message in mind, the parallels between the Narnia tales and the New Testament
easily fall into place.
Only to the deceived
• Narnia is a magical kingdom created by the divine King Aslan, but
currently in a state of perpetual winter due to a curse of the evil White
Witch. The four children (two “Sons of Adam,” two “Daughters of Eve”)
stumble in via the enchanted, eponymous wardrobe and become the disciples of
Kind of like Dorothy in jewish OZ and some where over
the Noahide rainbow?
The child Edmund betrays his siblings and Aslan, Judas-style, to aid the
White Witch, and is saved when Aslan allows himself to
be sacrificed, not unlike Jesus.
• Aslan is resurrected and the White Witch is vanquished. The four
children are crowned kings and queens of Narnia. Peter — not a coincidental
choice of names — becomes High King.
• In the last of the Chronicles of Narnia, fittingly titled “The Last
Battle,” an army of people described in a manner recalling the medieval
Turks and aligned with a donkey in a lion costume (a false god, if you will)
Those who believe in Aslan pass through a gate into another realm. After a
terrifying moment passing through the gate, a beautiful kingdom is revealed.
Aslan decrees that he has ended Narnia just as he began it, and the four
children, who died in the world of postwar Great Britain, can now live with
him forever in paradise along with other believers.
You figure it out.
Pastor Earl Palmer, co-founder of Berkeley’s New College and a scholar on
Lewis, said Lewis always saw his tales as “stories of the marvelous,” but
Palmer admits that Aslan is a loosely veiled Christ figure. But Lewis wasn’t
trying to fool anyone, Palmer says: Before turning to children’s books, he
wrote Christian religious tracts.
“Lewis said you can take a rock out of your shoe, but you can’t take an
idea out of your mind. His faith is in everything he writes,” said Palmer,
senior minister at Seattle’s University Presbyterian Church.

Lewis, however, denied he was writing allegorically. Instead, he claimed to
simply be imagining the concepts of good, evil and the ultimate redeemer in a
mystical world of his own creation.
But he never went so far as to claim the obvious Christian parallels were a
“There’s one funny line he put in a letter. He said children know who
Aslan is,” Palmer said. “The great golden lion, son of the emperor from
beyond the sea, is a Christ reference.”
And the golden lion is the sole redeemer.
Demoncrat's Back Aholibah
Israel’s security fence
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D.-N.Y.) backed Israel’s right to construct its West
Bank security barrier.
Clinton, speaking after receiving an honorary degree
from Yeshiva (Talmudic)
University on Sunday evening, said that a recent visit to Gilo, a town
on the outskirts of Jerusalem, gave her “an even greater appreciation for
the importance and rationale” of the fence, which has helped reduce
Palestinian terrorist attacks.
At the height of the intifada, Gilo was the target of frequent shootings
from the neighboring Palestinian town of Beit Jalla.
Israel has the “right to build a security barrier to try to keep out
those who would do harm to Israel,” Clinton said. Clinton also slammed
recent comments by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who suggested Israel
be moved to Europe and who questioned the Holocaust.
The comments, Clinton said, were “outrageous” and “simply beyond the
pale of international discourse.”
Jackson slams Iranian leader on
The Rev. Jesse Jackson called on Iran’s
president to retract anti-Israel and anti-Semitic comments.
The comments by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad “are a threat to the fragile fabric
of the world community,” Jackson said in a statement.
In comments made last week, Ahmadinejad said: “If the Europeans are
honest they should give some of their provinces in Europe — like in Germany,
Austria or other countries — to the Zionists and the Zionists can establish
their state in Europe. You offer part of Europe and we will support it.” He
earlier called for Israel’s destruction.

Judeo-Churchinsanity's Intelligent design, But not the creator Jesus the
Christ, but the Talmudic non-God
The Florida Sun-Sentinal has early coverage
of Chabad's Torah and Science conference:
But the main focus will come Wednesday with a keynote address by
A. Dembski, a champion of intelligent design and the first
evangelical Christian ever to address the conference. Dembski,
of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, (
feemason Noahide cemetary) will share the dais with three Jewish
experts who will look at various facets of evolution.
Ask Rabbi Sholom Lipskar, one of the conference
organizers, about the topic, and he sounds much like a conservative
the two are the same
"The moral and ethical morass today -- hate among nations,
juvenile delinquency, drug addiction, family breakdown -- comes from
people not believing there is a higher authority that owns and directs
the world," said Lipskar, of The Shul of Bal Harbour. [This must be
the problem! Quick! Let's tell Osama Bin Laden about religion!]
"But when we look to purpose and meaning, a superior authority,
things fall into place, socially and spiritually."
Lipskar met head-on the suggestions by some that intelligent design
is meant as a "back door" to putting religion in
DONE DONE THAT....HJR 104, PL 102-14
"It's not a back door, it's a front door!" he said.
"But the objective is not to make people religious. It's to make
them understand that the world was put into place by an intelligent
being. We are not random chemical reactions."
To have a conference on Torah
and Science whose keynote speaker is a Baptist is, shall we say,
unusual. But even more unusual is to have a keynote speaker with no
peer-reviewed work, and for the conference to present that work as
peer-reviewed science. Even worse, that speaker is sharing
a presentation with scientists, including Yeshiva
University's Rabbi Dr. Moses Tendler, who give his presentation
authority it would not otherwise have.
Coincidentally, RebelJew points
out that Chabad's view of science is, shall we say, heavily warped by
extreme apologetics like this,
on spontaneous generation:
… The literal meaning of Torah’s (TALMUD
BAVLI of the DRAGON) words must always be upheld. Terrible damage
has been caused by the attempts in the past — and that are again being
made — to “smooth” some people’s inner confusion and perplexity
by arguing that the words of Torah should be understood non-literally.
[Yet, Rishonim did understand parts of the Torah non-literally.]
They clearly understand that if you do not Obey
the seven universal Noahide anti-Christ laws you are to be beheaded
This is especially forbidden when dealing with areas that are
relevant to practical Halacha. (Talmudic
Law) The question that you mentioned is of this variety: The
existence of spontaneously generated worms is mentioned with regard to
the laws of Shabbat, since such creatures may permissibly be killed on
Shabbat. It is therefore obvious that there is no issue of a parable
here; we are talking about real, live, and factual entities.
It is also forbidden to undermine the literal meaning of the verses
with regard to the six days of creation — days,
not eras! — since it is connected with the fundamental concept of
the Shabbat day, which was established on the seventh day of the
world’s existence, as well as with specific laws concerning Shabbat.
On the other hand, there is no need to ignore the seeming
contradiction. Someone whose faith is strong is not bothered by such a
contradiction, since the foundation of our faith is that the Torah of
truth is the ultimate truth.
Mk:7:9: And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
Mk:7:13: Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
However, if some people do feel bothered by what seems to them
to be a contradiction, it is obviously necessary to examine seriously
and in detail the root of the contradiction, and to prove the mistake in
a specific experiment or theory. It is also possible that an unjustified
generalization or inclusion has been made in the extrapolation of some
scientific result or another.
The issue with spontaneously generated worms is very simple. True,
experiments do allow for following the process through which a worm
[larva] develops from an egg. And, when there are also explanations for
the process of how these eggs were laid, that allows for the conclusion
that these specific worms were created through a reproductive process.
However, when eggs found in rot are identified as belonging to a
specific species of worm, and the worms found there also bear signs of
belonging to that species, that in no way proves that it is impossible
for these worms to have appeared without the eggs, through spontaneous
on this is very important and should be read. Even more important is
knowing the name of the co-author of the above Chabad
quote – it is none other than Dr. Herman Branover, the co-head of
Chabad's Torah and Science conference and an avowed messianist.
Moshiach ben satanist
Worse yet, the entire quote is a paraphrase of a letter written by the
late Lubavitcher Rebbe,
Menachem Mendel Schneerson.
So much for the science of charlatans
Ha'aretz has a long, detailed report
on the fighting between the various Jewish organizations in Russia, with a
focus on the Rabbi
Goldschmidt ban. It contains the best explanation of how Berel
Lazar and Chabad took over Russia:
[Oligarch Roman] Abramovich, who had business
ties with [Chabad Oligarch Lev] Leviev, recruited the Israeli diamond
merchant for a struggle on behalf of Putin and against Gusinsky.
In return, Leviev received the support of Putin, who in 2000 was elected
president of Russia. That support made it possible for Lazar to
receive Russian citizenship in record time and to be recognized in
practice as the chief rabbi of Russian Jewry. Shayevich was shunted to the
The Jewish "federation" of Lazar and
Leviev became the darling of the government.
This was clearly manifested when President Putin took part in a
resplendent ceremony to dedicate the FEOR center in the Marina Roscha
neighborhood in 2001.
A plaque at the entrance to the building lists the donors. They include
Leviev, his partner Gaydamak, [Chabad oligarch Vladimir] Slutsker [please
see below] and other oligarchs. But at the top of the list is Abramovich.
He donated $5 million for the construction of the building. Lazar and FEOR
In 2002 Gusinsky was forced to leave Russia and then to sell his assets
there. The authorities launched an investigation
against him for tax violations. He based himself in Israel and
Europe and invested in the Israeli daily Maariv and in the local Russian
press; during the past year he has spent most of his
time in the United States. He was replaced as REK president by
Leonid Nevzlin, Khodorkovsky's associate. However, a year later, when it
became apparent that the Putin government supported FEOR, Nevzlin realized
that his place at the head of an organization identified with Gusinsky,
who is loathed by the government, was liable to be detrimental to him and
to affect Yukos as well. Nevzlin resigned and the deterioration of
REK has continued apace ever since.
In contrast, FEOR has flourished in the past five years. The success of Lazar
and Leviev can be attributed to the fact that Putin used them in his
struggle against Gusinsky and received a Jewish "umbrella" from
them in return.
But another reason for the close ties between the Putin government and
FEOR lies in the promises made by Leviev and Lazar that they would make their
connections available to Putin and assist the Kremlin to open doors in the
corridors of power in Washington.

Most importantly, they let Putin and his aides understand that their
influence and lobbying would bring about the abolition of a 1974
Congressional amendment to the Trade Reform Act sponsored by Senator Henry
Jackson and Representative Charles Vanik, both Democrats. Putin is deeply
distressed by this legislation, which stipulates that countries, such as
the former Soviet Union, which restrict freedom of movement and prevent
the free emigration of their citizens will not receive special trade
benefits from the United States. Even though the Jews of the former Soviet
Union, and then Russia, were allowed to leave, the amendment has not been

There are some who are skeptical of these figures. Two years ago, when
Tzipi Livni, then Israel's immigrant absorption minister, asked FEOR for a
list of these Jews, her request was rejected with the slightly peculiar
explanation that this would be a violation of privacy.
Gusinsky supported democracy. Putin is a
neo-Stalinist. Chabad supported Putin and worked to destroy Gusinsky and the
Russian Jewish Congress. Then, late last year they got one of their
own oilgarchs, Vladimir Slutsker, elected head of the now-comatose RJC. What
was Slutsker's first (and last) big move? He forced out the non-Chabad Chief
Rabbi of Moscow:
The conversation with Slutsker took place over a month ago in his
luxurious office, which is located in a modern new glass building in the
center of Moscow. Even though he was ousted some weeks ago from his
position as president of the Russian Jewish Congress (REK), he was in
buoyant spirits. Like all the Russian oligarchs, he is surrounded by
bodyguards, chauffeurs and young energetic female assistants dressed in
tailored suits. Hanging above
him on the wall is a photograph of the Lubavitcher Rebbe.
"Don't get me wrong," Slutsker emphasizes. "I do not care
about money and I am not greedy, because I am a kabbalist [Jewish mystic]
and therefore I have added the name Moshe Shlomo. I am not a Chabad member
like Leviev, but I recognize the spiritual
authority of the Lubavitcher Rebbe."…

Slutsker explains that he has always been drawn to public activity,
especially "spiritual religious activity," and therefore he has
donated generously from his own pocket to Jewish institutions and
organizations in Russia. Under the influence of "my good friend"
Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, (NASI) he says, he
established a yeshiva and a kabbala center called Tree of Life, which
according to Slutsker has 200 students. "A year and a half ago I was
approached with a request to save the Russian Jewish Congress, which was in a
state of collapse and barely functioning," he continues, "I saw this
as a challenge and threw myself into the work."…
Slutsker's major and most talked-about dispute is with Rabbi Goldschmidt.
At stake is control of a property - the headquarters of the Russian Jewish
Congress, located in a building that was transferred to the ownership of the
Jewish Community in Moscow, which is headed by Goldschmidt. As a religious
organization, the community has a tax-exempt status. "After some
time," Slutsker notes, "Rabbi Goldschmidt asked us to pay him rent
as though the offices actually belong to him. Naturally, I and the congress
refused to pay."
Goldschmidt's confidants say that the request was not for rent, but
payments to cover the costs of ongoing maintenance of the structure, such as

he and the congress were being summoned to din Torah, a lawsuit in which
judgment is given according to the strict letter of traditional Jewish law.
The plaintiff was the "Jewish Community of Moscow." "I
did not even bother to answer them," Slutsker says. "I do not
recognize the authority of a court in Jerusalem to address a commercial
dispute in Moscow. What connection do they have with me?"
Ten days later, in one of those strange coincidences, Goldschmidt was
deported from Russia. "There is absolutely no connection," Slutsker

No love lost
MOSCOW - The visa permit of Rabbi Pinchas
Goldschmidt arrived a few days ago. Until then he cynically defined himself as
"a Prisoner of Zion." For the past two
months he has been in almost solitary confinement in his
residence in Jerusalem, unable to return to Russia. Since 1989 he has
been considered the chief rabbi of Moscow. However, the
government of Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin will not allow him
to return to his flock.
On September 26, Rabbi Goldschmidt, who is 42, arrived at Domodevo Airport,
outside Moscow. "To my surprise I was detained when I alighted from the
plane and asked to wait. After I waited for about half an hour, the head of
the (security) shift arrived and told me that my visa had been canceled and
that I could choose between a flight to Switzerland [Goldschmidt holds Swiss
citizenship] or deportation by plane to the country from which I had arrived,
namely Israel. I chose Israel. I was not given any reasons."
The incident at the airport reflects what has been going on for the past
months within the Jewish community in Russia: power
struggles between oligarchs over control of the organizations that represent
the country's Jews and for the favors of the government. In the
background, senior officials of the Putin government are
stirring up things. In addition, attempts are being made to involve the
Israeli government, the Jewish Agency, Jewish organizations elsewhere and
Western governments in the intrigue.
"What is happening in the Jewish
community is something we have never seen before. There is a paradoxical
situation: The Jews in Russia have power, money and
influence, such as they never had before; yet at the same time the
situation of the Jewish community is at an all-time low," Goldschmidt
Who expelled Goldschmidt?
Pinchas Goldschmidt is a relatively minor player in this story, along with the
chief rabbis of Russia, Berel Lazar and Adolf Shayevich.
The central characters are the oligarchs Vladimir Slutsker, Vyacheslav Kantor,
Mikhail Friedman, Lev Leviev and Arcadi Gaydamak. Other individuals and
groups are active behind the scenes: Roman Abramovich, who is thought to be
the richest person in Russia; the Russian Federal Security Service FSB); Nativ,
the Israel-based organization that is responsible for issuing immigration
visas to Israel for immigrants from Russia and the republics of the former
Soviet Union; the Israeli embassy in Moscow; the European Jewish Congress; and
the American relief organization, the Joint Distribution Committee.
It was only a few days after Goldschmidt's deportation to Israel that the
Russian authorities provided a semi-official explanation for the incident.
They claimed that his visa had expired. Sources in the Putin government relate
that Goldschmidt had two visas, "one a tourist visa and the other a
business visa for a European company that has not existed for a long time.
Does it sound logical that a person who claims to be a chief rabbi should be
in the country on a tourist visa and a business visa - and for 15 years or
The rabbi's confidants have an explanation. They say that Goldschmidt arrived
in the Soviet Union at the invitation of an academic organization - the
department for the study of cultures in the Academy of Sciences, founded
by Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz. (Nasi of the
He then stayed on in Russia and
represented Jewish groups that had not received the official status of a
religious organization from the country's Ministry of the Interior. He had no
choice but to use a tourist and business visa. The organization with which
Rabbi Goldschmidt is identified is the Congress of Jewish Religious
Organizations and Communities in Russia, known for its Russian acronym Keror.
Its new patron is Arcadi Gaydamak.
Even if the official claim of the Russian authorities about the validity of
Goldschmidt's visa is correct, Russia is rife with rumors and conspiracy
theories. A simple explanation, even if it contains a
grain of truth, is received skeptically. In regard to the case at hand,
many questions have to be asked. Why did the authorities allow the rabbi to
use his tourist and business visas for 15 years? Why did they decide at this
time to take action against a spiritual leader of the Jewish community, who
also wields influence in the Israeli establishment and among Jewish
organizations worldwide? Are his rivals banding together against him vis-a-vis
the authorities? Who is behind the refusal to allow him to return? And why
have they now suddenly issued him a visa to return?
Swiss-born Pinchas Goldschmidt is married to an American citizen and served as
the rabbi of Upper Nazareth until being invited to Moscow in 1989. Urgent
efforts were made to formalize his status and get him back to Moscow. Among
those who were active in this regard are Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan
Shalom, Nativ, the Swiss government, the U.S. administration and the European
Union, to whom Goldschmidt has appealed to intercede on his behalf.
Because of the sensitive
situation in which he finds himself, he declines to be interviewed and only
offers a few brief comments. One of them is, "It is no secret: Everyone
knows who brought about my expulsion." But he will absolutely not
However, Vladimir Slutsker knows who Goldschmidt is referring to.
"Yes," he says, "I heard the rumors to the effect that I was
the one who caused Goldschmidt's deportation and those rumors do not make me
Who circulated them?
Slutsker: "Goldschmidt himself. I sent him a message that he is a rabbi
and therefore, according to the Torah and the precepts,
he must come up with two witnesses that I was the one who brought about his
expulsion. If he will be unable to prove that, he
will be a gossip-monger and a spreader of rumors, and he must cease to
be a rabbi and leave his post. I myself have two witnesses who heard him make
the accusation, and so I am considering the possibility
of bringing him before a rabbinical court."
The conversation with Slutsker took place over a month ago in his luxurious
office, which is located in a modern new glass building in the center of
Moscow. Even though he was ousted some weeks ago from his position as
president of the Russian Jewish Congress (REK), he was in buoyant spirits.
Like all the Russian oligarchs, he is surrounded by bodyguards, chauffeurs and
young energetic female assistants dressed in tailored suits. Hanging above him
on the wall is a photograph of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. "Don't get me
wrong," Slutsker emphasizes. "I do not care about money and I am not
greedy, because I am a kabbalist [Jewish mystic] and therefore I have added
the name Moshe Shlomo. I am not a Chabad member like Leviev, but I recognize
the spiritual authority of the Lubavitcher Rebbe."
'Two Jews in the republic'
Slutsker was born in Moscow in 1956 and attended the Institute for
Transportation Engineering in Moscow, obtaining a Ph.D. in civil engineering
in 1985. During the perestroika period he opened a private business and
established a trading company in Switzerland that dealt with the Soviet Union,
buying raw materials and selling equipment for the automotive industry. In
1992 he expanded his activities, trading in oil and metals, and selling
technology and machinery for the food-processing and construction industries.
He also owned a bank and a financial investment company. He is estimated to be
worth $300 million. In the past four years he has also been a senator in the
Federation Council, the upper House of the Russian parliament (the members of
the lower House, known as the Duma, are elected, whereas the senators are
Slutsker represents the Chuvashia Autonomous Republic in the Volga region,
home to peoples of Finno-Ugric and Turkic descent. They speak a language
similar to Turkish. "I am apparently one of the only two Jews in the
whole republic," he says and bursts into laughter; in fact, almost every
other sentence he utters is punctuated with rolling laughter.
His position as a senator accords him political clout that opens doors and
helps him forge connections and accumulate influence in the Kremlin.
"I am a secular politician and a religious
Jew," he says, though people who know him are hard-put to say
wherein his religiosity resides. And not only because he is bare-headed.
Slutsker explains that he has always been drawn to public activity, especially
"spiritual religious activity," and therefore he has donated
generously from his own pocket to Jewish institutions and organizations in
Russia. Under the influence of "my good
friend" Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, he says, he
established a yeshiva and a kabbala center called Tree of Life, which
according to Slutsker has 200 students. "A year and a half ago I
was approached with a request to save the Russian Jewish Congress, which was
in a state of collapse and barely functioning," he continues, "I saw
this as a challenge and threw myself into the work."
Slutsker was elected president of the group in November 2004. He found
"an organization that existed on paper, a virtual organization. I wanted
to create something central and strong, like the Conference of Presidents of
Major Jewish Organizations in the United States." That did not happen:
Slutsker quickly became embroiled with other oligarchs, including Vyacheslav
Kantor and particularly Mikhail Friedman, who owns the Alpha Bank and TNK - an
oil company that is a partner with British Petroleum. Friedman is thought to
be one of Russia?s wealthiest individuals.
Slutsker: "I knew that becoming entangled with Friedman was not just some
small thing. He has tremendous influence and is colossally rich. But I had to
stick to my principles."
However, Slutsker's major and most talked-about dispute is with Rabbi
Goldschmidt. At stake is control of a property - the headquarters of the
Russian Jewish Congress, located in a building that was transferred to the
ownership of the Jewish Community in Moscow, which is headed by Goldschmidt.
As a religious organization, the community has a tax-exempt status.
"After some time," Slutsker notes, "Rabbi Goldschmidt asked us
to pay him rent as though the offices actually belong to him. Naturally, I and
the congress refused to pay."
Goldschmidt's confidants say that the request was not for rent, but payments
to cover the costs of ongoing maintenance of the structure, such as
Be that as it may, on September 15, 2005, Slutsker, to his "great
surprise," received a fax from a rabbinical court, the Jerusalem Court
for Civil Law and Ancestral Law, in which he was notified that he and the
congress were being summoned to din Torah, a lawsuit in which judgment is
given according to the strict letter of traditional Jewish law. The plaintiff
was the "Jewish Community of Moscow." "I did not even bother to
answer them," Slutsker says. "I do not recognize the authority of a
court in Jerusalem to address a commercial dispute in Moscow. What connection
do they have with me?"
Ten days later, in one of those strange coincidences, Goldschmidt was deported
from Russia. "There is absolutely no connection," Slutsker states.
"Almost a year ago Rabbi Goldschmidt told me that he had problems with
security people in Russia and asked me to help. He refused to tell me what his
problems were, but explained that he was under pressure. I explained to him
that he would not be able to retain the status of chief rabbi of Moscow and
head of a Jewish organization after 15 years of entering the country on a
tourist visa or as a businessman representing a foreign firm. He came to me
again in June of this year and told me that the security authorities had asked
him to cooperate and that he was under heavy pressure. Afterward I discovered
that he had gone to the American embassy, even though he is not an American
citizen, and told them that pressure was being put on
him. I don't know why he did that."
To cooperate - in what sense? To be an agent or an informer of the FSB?
"It is clear to everyone what is meant by 'cooperation.' Therefore, I
will add nothing more about that. I will only tell you that I asked him, 'Did
you tell them no, that you would not cooperate?' He replied, 'I did not reply
to them.' Still, I tried to help him, and then to my great surprise he was
an agent of Dan
Slutsker's involvement in this affair is one of the reasons why, about a month
ago, the members of the board of the Russian Jewish Congress decided they had
had enough of him. When it became clear to him that he would not be reelected,
Slutsker was replaced by Vyacheslav Moshe Kantor. At 52,
Kantor, too, is a combination of oligarch, philanthropist and typical public
activist. His wealth is estimated at $1 billion. He is the principal
donor to the Kantor Center for the History, Culture and Life of Eurasian Jews
at Tel Aviv University, and in return was awarded an honorary doctorate by the
university. He has also contributed to museums and synagogues in Russia and
Geneva, and paid out of his pocket for the ceremonies
held at Krakow to mark the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
Until recently he was vice president of the Euro-Asian Jewish Congress, headed
by Alexander Mashkevich, another Russian oligarch, - but the two also had a
falling out. Kantor is also chairman of the board of governors of the European
Laden with representative titles, he, like many oligarchs, likes to travel the
world in his private plane and hobnob with fat cats, businessmen and other
Jewish leaders. He holds a Ph.D. from the Moscow Aviation University. Toward
the end of the perestroika period he became a businessman and today owns a
fertilizer company called Akron, which has dealings in Russia, China, the
republics of the former Soviet Union and Western Europe. His critics
say he served as a tool in the hands of the FSB and the General Prosecution in
Russia in the incrimination of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, who
owned the huge Yukos conglomerate.
Until about two years ago, Khodorkovsky (who is Jewish on his father's side,
but does not consider himself Jewish or close to Israel) was
thought to be the richest man in Russia. When President Putin and his
aides decided to topple him and his colleagues in Yukos, because of their
support for the opposition parties and their criticism of the president, they
found an ally in Kantor: He is involved in a business dispute with a Yukos
Against this background Kantor drew up memoranda, which reached the
prosecution, detailing the essence of the dispute, which had to do with
coordinating the prices of certain chemical products. The FSB and the
prosecution made use of the memoranda to fire the opening salvo in
a war that ended with Khodorkovsky being sent to a Siberian prison for eight
years. His associate, Leonid Nevzlin, found asylum in Israel. Yukos
was dissolved and transferred to other magnates, who are close to Putin.
Now you know Bushitlers and
Cheney's part with his Pal, Putin
"The facts you mention are totally inaccurate and mistaken," Kantor
wrote in his response to Haaretz, "but I have no intention of discussing
the subject when the person you are talking about [Khodorkovsky] is in
Kantor believes he will succeed where Slutsker failed. He promises "to
restore the organization's strength and powers" - and, of course, to
heighten the cooperation between the community he ostensibly represents and
The No. 1 Jew
The Russian Jewish Congress (REK) was founded in 1994 by Vladimir Gusinsky,
who was a theater director in the Soviet period and became a highly
influential oligarch during the presidency of Boris Yeltsin. Gusinsky
owned a company called Most, which at its peak controlled television and radio
stations, banks, investment firms and construction companies. Gusinsky tried
to emulate the American model. It was thus not by chance that the name he
chose for his organization evoked that of the influential Canadian-American
tycoon, Edgar Bronfman, the World Jewish Congress.
As president of the WJC, Bronfman was considered by the international media to
be the representative of the Jewish people, and thus was able to form ties
which he could not have done solely as the owner of a liquor concern.
Bronfman was received for private audiences by the pope, (Sanhedrin's
Catholicos) held negotiations in the name
of the "Jewish people" with Swiss banks and flew to meetings
with world leaders. Gusinsky understood the vast importance and the public and
personal benefit that could accrue to him as head of the Jewish community of
Russia. His idea was to establish an umbrella organization for all the
movements, institutions and factions related to the Jewish world in Russia -
religious and secular alike.
Indeed, Gusinsky's novel and creative move succeeded beyond anyone's
predictions. Among those who joined his organization were Chabad,
the Jewish Community of Moscow under Rabbi Goldschmidt, the chief rabbi of
Russia Adolf Shayevich and oligarchs such as Friedman. REK was recognized by
the State of Israel, the Jewish Agency, the Joint Distribution Committee, the
ORT vocational schools network and the other Jewish organizations around the
world. For a time Gusinsky became the No. 1 Jew in Russia.
Soon, though, it became apparent that everything revolved around business and
politics. The oligarchs Gusinsky, Boris Berezovsky (who declared that he does
not consider himself a Jew) and Roman Abramovich began to compete for
influence in the Kremlin. The period was the late 1990s, in the waning days of
the government of Boris Yeltsin, who was old, tired and drinking heavily.
"The Family" - the name given to all the relatives, aides,
confidants and hangers-on surrounding Yeltsin, many
of whom got rich at the expense of the public coffers - was divided
into a number of factions. Abramovich tried to sponsor a few candidates for
prime minister as a counterweight to the influence wielded by Gusinsky and
Berezovsky on the government.
The group of oligarchs split and the fragmentation affected Gusinsky's Jewish
organization as well. Abramovich and others realized that Gusinsky was
exploiting not only his businesses and ties, but also REK to further his
standing at their expense. His opponents therefore decided to diminish the
organization's prestige and sought an appropriate Jewish alternative. They
found it in the persons of Lev Leviev and Berel
"My first meeting with Lev Leviev was in 1992," Berel Lazar relates
in his Moscow office, which is located in the modern building that is the
center of activity of the organization he represents, the Federation of Jewish
Communities in Russia (FEOR). The building, a community and cultural center
that also contains a synagogue, is located in the Marina Roscha neighborhood
and is named after it. Originally there was a wooden structure here, built in
1926, which held the only synagogue built in the Soviet Union after the
Lazar: "Someone told me about a businessman in
Israel and gave me his phone number. I called him and invited him to a
This was the beginning of a partnership that made Lev
Leviev the most influential, most active and most connected person in the
Jewish community of Russia, and made Lazar the country's chief rabbi.
Attacks on Gusinsky
Lazar's baby face belies his 41 years. His
parents immigrated to the United States from Europe and became Chabad
followers. Lazar was born in 1964 in Italy, where his parents were sent
on a mission by the Lubavitcher
Rebbe. Like them, he also became a Chabad
emissary, arriving in the Soviet Union in 1987. Afterward he returned
to the United States for a brief period, married and then returned to Moscow
to act as the rabbi of the Chabad community there. The acquaintanceship with Leviev,
who is also a Chabad follower, became a springboard on Lazar's way to
success and recognition.
It was thanks to Leviev's contributions that the FEOR was established in 1997.
Leviev began to donate from his private fortune - he is
thought to give away 10 percent of his revenues from his diamond business - to
institutions that are run by Lazar and Chabad in Russia. "For a
few years I worked in full cooperation with Gusinsky and REK," Lazar
emphasizes, "until Gusinsky started to run a political campaign."
Gusinsky ran candidates of his own for the presidency
against Putin. Abramovich
backed Putin. "I said openly," Lazar maintains, "that
what Gusinsky was doing was not desirable and would hurt the Jewish community.
But I was in the minority. And the fact is that after a time the FSB launched
a campaign against him that included a physical assault on him.
Gusinsky claimed he was being harassed because of his
Jewishness, and described the acts as anti-Semitic and called on the Jews of
Russia to support him. Many Jews felt uncomfortable because the
impression was that they were against the government.
They felt that Gusinsky had made them hostages against the authorities. This
was the background for a large conference of the representatives of 87
communities, to which Rabbi Shayevich was also invited. However, he did not
come to the conference and it was decided that a different chief rabbi would
be appointed. It is true that Rabbi Shayevich complained about the vote and
argued that it was illegal.
But there is also a different version of the course of events, one that is
less innocent than Rabbi Lazar's account. This version maintains that
Abramovich, who had business ties with Leviev, recruited
the Israeli diamond merchant for a struggle on behalf of Putin and against
Gusinsky. In return, Leviev received the support
of Putin, who in 2000 was elected president of Russia. That support
made it possible for Lazar to receive Russian citizenship in record time and
to be recognized in practice as the chief rabbi of Russian Jewry. Shayevich
was shunted to the sidelines.
The Jewish "federation" of Lazar and Leviev became the darling of
the government. This was clearly manifested when President Putin took part in
a resplendent ceremony to dedicate the FEOR center in the Marina Roscha
neighborhood in 2001.
A plaque at the entrance to the building lists the donors. They include Leviev,
his partner Gaydamak, Slutsker and other oligarchs. But at the top of the list
is Abramovich. He donated $5 million for the construction of the building.
Lazar and FEOR left REK. In 2002 Gusinsky was forced to leave Russia and then
to sell his assets there. The authorities launched an investigation against
him for tax violations. He based himself in Israel and Europe and invested in
the Israeli daily Maariv and in the local Russian press; during the past year
he has spent most of his time in the United States. He was replaced as REK
president by Leonid Nevzlin, Khodorkovsky's associate. However, a year later,
when it became apparent that the Putin government supported FEOR, Nevzlin
realized that his place at the head of an organization identified with
Gusinsky, who is loathed by the government, was liable to be detrimental to
him and to affect Yukos as well. Nevzlin resigned and the deterioration of REK
has continued apace ever since.
In contrast, FEOR has flourished in the past five years. The success of Lazar
and Leviev can be attributed to the fact that Putin used them in his struggle
against Gusinsky and received a Jewish
"umbrella" from them in return. But
another reason for the close ties between the Putin government and FEOR lies
in the promises made by Leviev and Lazar that they would make their
connections available to Putin and assist the Kremlin to open doors in the
corridors of power in Washington.
Most importantly, they let
Putin and his aides understand that their influence and lobbying would bring
about the abolition of a 1974 Congressional amendment to the Trade Reform Act
sponsored by Senator Henry Jackson and Representative Charles Vanik, both
Democrats. Putin is deeply distressed by this legislation, which stipulates
that countries, such as the former Soviet Union, which restrict freedom of
movement and prevent the free emigration of their citizens will not receive
special trade benefits from the United States. Even though the Jews of the
former Soviet Union, and then Russia, were allowed to leave, the amendment has
not been repealed.
Even Lazar and Leviev's rivals admit that their organization is the largest
and strongest in Russia. Lazar declines to reveal FEOR's budget, but informed
sources say it has a turnover of $35 million a year. About
a third of the money, or slightly less, comes directly from Leviev?s pocket,
the rest from donations in Russia and elsewhere. FEOR
also has a very active and successful friends organization in the United
States. At a cost of $70 million, the organization is currently
building a vast complex adjacent to the Marina Roscha site, where the central
bus station of Moscow once stood. Some of the structures are earmarked for
preservation and are considered architectural landmarks. The land, worth an
estimated $10 million, was donated by the Moscow municipality. The complex
will include schools, a swimming pool, sports halls and a museum of the
history of the Jewish people.
However, FEOR's success cannot be attributed solely to connections and money.
It is also due to the devotion of its activists, most of them young Chabad
people who are always ready, steadfastly and enthusiastically, to embark on a
mission at the behest of their rabbis to the Russian hinterland, no matter how
awful the physical conditions. After all, what prevents the Reform
movement, for example, from dispatching young representatives on similar
missions? Rabbi Lazar talks of an organization that has 200 communities across
Russia and which provides both spiritual support (sacred articles, religious
services, rabbis) and material backing (food, education, health, financial
aid) to hundreds of thousands of Jews. "In Moscow alone," he says in
an interview, "130,000 Jews have ties with us."
There are some who are skeptical of these figures. Two years ago, when Tzipi
Livni, then Israel?s immigrant absorption minister, asked FEOR for a list of
these Jews, her request was rejected with the slightly peculiar explanation
that this would be a violation of privacy.
Putin's court Jew
Non Noahide Murderer
Success has a price. Some harsh allegations have been leveled at Lazar.
The first is that he has become a kind of court Jew of
Vladimir Putin. He has passionately defended the Russian government on
quite a few occasions and rebuffed criticism that was voiced about
anti-Semitism in Russia. "I do not know what a court Jew is," he
says. "There are some people whose only purpose is to speak in
condemnation of the government. I try to be objective. The situation in Russia
has improved under Putin. People get pensions. The standard of living is
rising. There are also negative phenomena, which deserve to be criticized.
There is corruption at all levels, though that has been characteristic of
Russia in the past 80 years. The reform is in bad shape and there are also
many other ills."
What about anti-Semitism?
Lazar: "There is definitely anti-Semitism
and manifestations of nationalism. But the government is trying to
fight the anti-Semitism. The government is returning assets of Jews. Putin
sends me Rosh Hashanah greetings. Jews are getting respect and one can be a
Jew and walk the streets as a Jew without fear."
Some say that your organization plays down the connection with Zionism and
"That is not true. We are very proud of the connection with Israel and do
not hide it. Just last year we organized visits for 4,000 young people in
Israel. But we say that we also have to respect the Jews who are not thinking
about immigrating to Israel. The Jewish community in Russia is not only a
pipeline for immigration to Israel. There are people who have got used to the
notion that Russia is a source of immigration. But the situation is changing.
There are Jews in Russia who are not thinking about immigrating to Israel. We
have to look after them, too. Our approach is that Jews should feel like Jews
and that they have to decide themselves where they want to live and not that
someone should decide for them. We believe that there is Israel, but that one
also has to be a Jew."
What do you say about the view that FEOR is a religious organization? Why is
the gym in Marina Roscha open alternately for separate activities for men and
"We are not a missionary organization. People who enter our gates are
secular; we have no interest in imposing our opinion on them. People walk
around in the building without skullcaps. Most of the students in our schools
are secular. But we also definitely educate toward
Judaism and Yiddishkeit."
Despite everything, the past few months have seen something of a decline in
the status of FEOR. One reason is that Roman Abramovich has lowered his public
profile (he recently sold parts of his giant company Sibneft Oil and
diminished his business activity in Russia), and that Leviev's influence in
the Kremlin is also not what it used to be. The officials with whom he
cooperated have fallen out of favor and lost their
power. In addition, FEOR and Leviev face another danger - in the person of
"Politics and business"
There is a great deal of bustle in the Great Synagogue
in Moscow. The impressive historic building with its distinctive dome
is undergoing a face-lift ahead of the events that will be held in another 10
months, marking the centenary of its establishment. The rabbi of the synagogue
is Adolf Shayevich. The conversation with him takes place in his modest
office. Shayevich is not a Kremlin favorite; Lazar enjoys a far stronger
"What happened," he explains, "has nothing to with religion and
everything to do with politics and business. The president invites him to
receptions and does not invite me. I am not offended."
This is the place to note that Russian law does not recognize the concept of
chief rabbi. "In fact," admits Prof. Mikhail Chlenov, one of
Russia's foremost Jewish intellectuals, "every organization can appoint
itself a rabbi and grant him an imposing title." He adds, laughing,
"You, too, could be a chief rabbi here." In other words, Rabbis
Shayevich and Lazar, who both claim to be chief rabbi of Russia, or Rabbi
Goldschmidt, the chief rabbi of Moscow, are appointees of Jewish organizations
and not of the Russian government. Russia maintains a separation between
religion and state that is enshrined in law.
There is no shortage of chief rabbis in Russia, nor of Jewish organizations. Chlenov,
who teaches linguistics at the University of Moscow and is dean of the
Maimonides Academy in the city, is not only a commentator - he is also an
activist and heads a Jewish organization called the Va'ad (a Hebrew word
meaning "committee"). That is not all: In 2003 he established
the National-Cultural Autonomy organization and a year before that, he was one
of the founders of the Kazakhstan-based Euro-Asian Jewish Congress together
with the Jewish oligarch Alexander Mashkevich.
Shayevich is 68. He was born in the Soviet Union, worked as an engineer in
Khabarovsk, in southeast Russia, and after studying for seven years at a
Budapest yeshiva was appointed chief rabbi of Russia's Jews during the Soviet
regime. Obviously, he would do the will of the regime.
He held the title until 1998, when Lazar adopted the identical title. "They,"
Shayevich says, referring to Leviev, Abramovich and Lazar, "set up an
organization that was aimed against Gusinsky. Because of that they received
everything from the Russian government, including citizenship and the title of
chief rabbi for Rabbi Lazar. All the doors were opened to them."
And what is your status?
Shayevich: "I am no longer connected to the government and, thank God,
the government does not bother us. We are free today to do as we wish."
Now that you have a patron in the person of Gaydamak, is there a chance that
your organization will get stronger?
"Yes. I very much hope that our situation will improve. Arcadi has been
our president for the past half a year. He helps us and donates generously.
That makes it possible for us to expand. We already have 80 communities in
Russia. We send them rabbis, sacred articles and kosher food and help them
renovate or build synagogues."
