(6) It is forbidden to Masser a Jew in to the hands of a Goy (Gentile), it makes no difference if its his body (גוף) or money (ממון), even ממון קל, which means even if it’s a “light” (small) amount of money.,
This prohibition (אסור) applies by דיבור, which means outright Messira through speech, Or even revealing what a fellow Jew wants to do, for example giving a hint, for example: if the Goy (גוי) asks the Yid where he can find strew, it is forbidden to tell him that it can be found in a specific Yid’s house, or even to just point to the Yid’s house, – without even saying anything, and anyone that does Massira has no part in the world to come.
Even a wicked person (רשע) and a sinner (בעל עבירות), it is forbidden to Massir on him, both in regard to his body (גוף) or money (ממונו), and even if this person is a constant bother, for example, he’s always harassing you, it’s forbidden to Masser.
However, if this wicked person Massered on you, you are allowed to Masser on him, if there is reason to believe that this wicked person will continue his Mossering and the only way you can save yourself is by- Mossering on the wicked person or in a case that you were Massered on and that Messira was not dismissed, meaning it’s ongoing, your allowed to Masser, if that’s your last resort, and no other way out.
Also one that is violent who regularly hits people and there is no other way to protect yourself from him, unless you will Masser him to Goyim, that they shall take his money or “cut off his hands” that he may not be violent again. However, someone who hit his friend but he is not regularly violent rather this was a one time thing, it is forbidden even for the person that was hit, to Masser his friend, for even though if in this case, the person that was hit does Masser, there are those opinions which exempt him from (דיני אדם) Judgment from man, because a person isn’t (”נתפס על צערו”) [Baba Bathra 16: Raba said: This teaches that a man is not held responsible for what he says when in distress[. Still (לכתחילה) to begin with it is forbidden to according to everyone and he is a Mosser (if he does).
And even if you have a violent Jew, and he doesn’t want to go to Bais Din, it is forbidden to go to the authorities to force him to come to a Din Torah, until you receive permission from Bais Din, also to force him through the means of Goyim to fulfill the Psak (Halachik Ruling) of Bais din, it is forbidden till you have consent from Bais Din.
(7) Someone that Masser’s it is permitted to kill him, in any place, and at any time, even in today’s time, even before he actually Masser’s, like if he says “I’m going to Masser on someone either on his actual body or money etc…” he has permitted himself to death, and we warn him, and we tell him: Do not Masser. If he has Chutzpa and says no, I’m going to Masser anyways, it is a Mitzva (commandment) to kill him, and whoever is first in doing so, the merit is his.
For someone that goes to Masser money of a Jew into the hands of Goyim, it’s as if he’s “chasing” (''רודף'') after his soul. And if someone is “chasing” (''רודף'') after your friend to kill him, it is allowed to save him (your friend), by killing the killer (Mosser).
And if there is no opportunity to warn him (the Mosser), you do not need to warn him. However if you can save the victim by hurting the killer (Mosser), for example by cutting off his tongue, or to poke out his eyes, then it’s forbidden to kill him (the Mosser).
(8) If the Mosser followed thought with his plot (of Messira), it is forbidden to kill him, unless he’s “assumed in Messira”, which means he has done Messira three times, then you can kill for he may continue to Mosser on others. It is forbidden to destroy the money of a Mosser by hand, meaning by physical action, or through Messira to Goyim, even though it’s permitted to destroy his body (by killing him). For his money is fit for his inheritors. However it’s permitted to cause him lose of money, because since his body is void (הפקר) so is his money, and for sure you don’t have to pick up his lost item to return to him. However it is forbidden to take the Mosser’s money for yourself (even if it’s something that the Mosser lost) since it is fit for his inheritors.
There are those who say that a Mosser has the law of a Mumar (מומר) to the whole Torah (see Rambam Laws of Repentance, Chapter 3, law 9, for what a Mumar for the whole Torah is). And if you find the Mosser’s lost object it is yours and is forbidden to return it to him….
(9) Someone that’s assumed as a Mosser, and it seems that the only reason why his words are heard is because of his money, meaning he is rich, and if he would be poor his words will not be heard, it is permitted to destroy (לאבד) his money, or to Masser on him to Goyim, for with this you are saving other people from this Mosser’s Messira.
A PATTERN OF VICIOUS MESSIRA'S COMING TO AN END
For [almost] 30 years, since the creation of the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council Inc. (CHJCC), Crown Heights residents has suffered from one Messira after the next, ranging from RICO cases, to gang assault.
To much innocent Jewish Blood floods our streets. There is not a lamp post in Crown Heights which does not have the blood from the Fischer and Hershkop family.
As a result of these Messira’s and of-course those caring them out, many good innocent victims (of these Messira’s) have sadly rolled over and died. There are a lot of people living amongst us which have Jewish blood on their hands.
Investigating many of these Messira’s, WIS failed to find any reason why these families were being targeted with vicious Messira other then Sinas Chinam- Pure Hate.
The people caring out these Messira’s (who by the way are all connected one way or the other), are not missing anything, they have plenty of wealth. These Mossrim have been stealing millions from the Community since THEY created the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council Inc. and the Crown Heights Beth Din, and these same Mossrim have had the Chutzpa to blame other innocent people (like Fischer and Hershkop for example), spilling their blood, taking them to court on RICO charges and gang assault to name just a couple of blood libels?
Why? Why would they do this?
The Answer is very simple:
As illustrated in George Orwell’s seminal book Animal Farm, corrupt totalitarians of all kinds gain their power through focusing on and creating an outside enemy or group of enemies. Maligning and slandering this outside enemy, whether it be Dovid Fischer, Aguch/Krinsky the Shomrim/Hershop brothers, is essential if the cabal is to gain the loyalty of the masses. Fanning the flames of fear and hatred among the people arouses their need and desire for the cabal’s leadership and protection. Help us and support us, the cabal will claim, because if not, the enemies, who are far worse than we could ever be, will take over. Classical scapegoat theory comes into to play as the Dovid Fishers and the Hershkops of the world become the ‘Jews’ of Crown Heights- convenient targets upon whom to place all the blame. No money for community programs? The CHJCC is ineffectual, even harmful to the community? Not their fault! If only the Fishers and/or the Hershkops would get out of their way everything would be wonderful. It’s an old con game however, and the good news is that the con is up. The corrupt ones have overplayed their hand.
There have been too many good Yidden of our community damaged by the cabal over the past decades. Too many lives have been disrupted, reputations ruined, too many dreams have been deferred, and far too little has been done to make a better quality of life for the people of Crown Heights. Literally a fortune of money has been wasted by the CHJCC and their allies on Machlokes. That was Jewish community money that should have been used to build our community, to help heal and comfort our fellow Jews. Instead, millions of dollars have been squandered by the cabal just to keep themselves in business and in power while they perniciously use the name of the Rebbe and Lubavitch to spread divisiveness, Sinas Chinam, and Chillul Hashem.
Enough is enough, how many innocent Jews must die as a result of pure hate and greed?
The answer is simple: No more, it’s all going to end, this corruption, this fraud, these Messira’s are coming to an end once and for all, by all means necessary.
WIS will not stand by as blood floods my streets, the streets I grow up on and the streets I want to raise my own family on.
WIS knows there are plenty more Messiras that were done on many other individuals, families, business etc…, to many to list, many died as a result.
