Who would have imagined, who would have dreamed in his most wildest dream, that the day would come when Meshichist leader, Menachem Mendel Hendel would be afraid to walk into the basement of 770 Eastern Parkway because of fear of Meshichistim, fear of the very people he Indoctrinated, trained, supported and justified (in doing acts of violence and Mesirah), for these past 20 years.
Councilman David Greenfield criticized Borough Park Assemblyman Dov Hikind for creating ‘machlokes’ and ‘sinas chinam’ over an alleged knockout attack that an NYPD source rushed to dismiss.
Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who was in Albany for session at the time and did not speak to the victim, criticized Mr. Greenfield and the various outlets that carried the story for reporting the incident without providing concrete evidence to the victim’s claim.
Crownheights.info beat me to the story (bellow). My thoughts on the matter in extended article.
[CH.INFO] Early this morning a Kvutzeh Bochur was dragged out of his bed by police detectives and arrested. Friends of this Bochur ‘plastered’ 770 with signs and flyers calling Menachem Mendy Hendel and a number of his cohorts Mosserim [informers]. During Mincha they physically attacked as well.
Because those materials aren’t covered under the state’s Freedom of Information Law, the department said.
Shawn Musgrave, a reporter for MuckRock, which specializes in freedom of information requests, requested the NYPD’s written guidelines on how freedom of information requests are handled in a letter last December.
This story keeps getting better and better at each passing day.
It has come to CHLEAKS.COM attention that a few Crown Heightsers have invested big money in ‘COTS’.

Did you notice that in this whole Oholei Torah; Call of the Shofer’ saga the name Nachman Schapiro has not been mentioned once. Why is that?
Read it here: Hebrew- 12-30-13 Chabad Info- ‘call of the Shofer’- Whats the Noise and Whats the commotion.
Note: It also comes at no surprise that chabadinfo did not translate this article (in full) into English.
Is it a surprise? Absolutely not.
Bias? Absolutely Yes!
Jerusalem – In a recent thought-provoking op-ed, noted philosopher, and prolific author, Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz discusses the fact that it has historically been the Jewish religious leaders, as opposed to political figure heads, who have “molded and formed” the “inner essence” of Jewry, and who have “set the course of the world” by acting as “the heads of the thousands of Israel” according to the Torah, and with that in mind, Siensaltz then proceeds to ask the poignant question; “Are the contemporary leaders of Jewry truly the leaders of this generation?”
My position on this issue:
I agree with everything that was discussed at the Kinnus on Tuesday, 21 Tevet 5774 (December 21, 2013).

Mesira Vs. Antisemitism, whats worse?
Chumash with Rashi for Shemot:
11. Now it came to pass in those days that Moses grew up and went out to his brothers and looked at their burdens, and he saw an Egyptian man striking a Hebrew man of his brothers.
12. He turned this way and that way, and he saw that there was no man; so he struck the Egyptian and hid him in the sand.
The very next day…
13. He went out on the second day, and behold, two Hebrew men were quarreling, and he said to the wicked one, “Why are you going to strike your friend?”
Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo said what she meant and meant what she said. It was her that made the connection between the ‘Knock Out’ and what her fellow blacks were telling her. She made this connections because in her head it made total sense.
I thought to myself, can this really be? Will this letter contain information as to what the CHJCC has been up to since the last elections of 2010? Will this be the letter that will inform us as to how they assisted the [Jewish] needy of this neighborhood? Will the corrupt Cabal of the CHJCC finally tell us how and where they spent $41 Million over the years?
No, it wasn’t anything like that…just another irrelevant distraction.

You’d think NYC Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo was an Arab living in Palestine the way this reads:
DNA INFO – Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo, who was elected to represent Crown Heights starting in January, released an open letter Tuesday saying that many of her black constituents told her they feel threatened by the growth of the neighborhood’s Jewish community — and she fears the tension could be spiking the recent violence.
The Haftorah of Parshas Miketz reveals to us the extent one can be driven when plagued with jealousy. The Haftorah relates the first court decision the wise Shlomo Hamelech rendered after assuming the mantle of leadership. It tells of two women who shared an apartment and both had given birth at the same time. Unfortunately, misfortune struck one of them and her child died in his sleep. One of the women claimed that her child was actually kidnapped by the other woman and replaced by the woman’s dead child and the other totally denied the accusation. Shlomo Hamelech immediately ordered for a sword to be brought and that the live child be divided equally amongst the two women. The true mother cried out and pleaded with the king that the child be spared and given to the other mother. But the latter calmly accepted the judgment and agreed to the slicing of the child. Shlomo immediately ruled that the woman who frantically expressed her compassion was the child’s true mother.
