I went through a youthful period when I read histories of the Holocaust. Now, I just can't read how primitive and awful are our enemies. I made an exception when my own Rabbi, Samuel Cywiak released his Holocaust memoir just two weeks ago. It was painful yet fulfilling to read the story of my 89 year old rabbi being a 19 year old youth outsmarting and outrunning the Nazis. I had underestimated the man. He had the guile, savvy and strength to survive, when, frankly, I may not have.
My city of Saint Augustine has 3 synagogues. The Reform and Chabad attract a younger crowd but I was most comfortable in Rabbi Cywiak's Conservative synagogue with its older worshipers. If I may add, my synagogue must own the world record for the oldest bar mitzvah boy when 93 year old Benjamin Rosenfel, "became a man."
Rabbi Cywiak's book is called Flight From Fear and was written with the good help of Jeff Swesky. Without this book I would never have known of my rabbi's privileged lineage. His father was one of the founders of a serious political movement to this day, Agudat Yisrael, while his cousin was the revered Chief Rabbi of Israel, Shlomo Goren. The book's horrors are balanced by humor and optimism, yes, apparently you could find an occasional funny and optimistic side of the Holocaust, and that makes this memoir special.
We'll let the Rabbi tell us how he was the sole survivor of a Nazi massacre, after his father shoved him into the death pit a second before the machine guns started blasting:

"Can anyone hear me? Anyone? Anyone at all?" Out of sixty or so Jews marched into the woods by the Germans, I was the only survivor. I was surrounded by death; the senseless murdering of Jews. What kind of evil does these things? "Oh dear G-d, why is this happening to us?" I cried out to the silent night.

He fled to a nearby city and found the burnt remains of the synagogue.

Inside the charred destroyed building were hundreds and hundreds of burnt bodies, skeletons. The Nazis to get rid of many Jews in one shot, packed them into the synagogue, barricaded them inside, and set fire to the building, burning the inhabitants alive.

The horrors of his journey never ended. He entered another city:

There were maybe fifty or more Jewish men, women and children piled in a gutter with their throats slit from ear to ear.

Rabbi Cywiak shows far more compassion to the gentiles of his country than to their religious leaders who prepared the ground for the slaughter.

There were plenty of good Polish people along my travels who wanted to help, who truly felt bad about what was happening to the Jews.They felt sorry, even cried at times. Some went out of their way to help. They had good hearts. Sometimes I felt sorry for them! They were so openly broken up; they showed their emotions.


Who used to start these rumors of us killing Christ and drinking the blood of Christian children? A handful of Christian priests and bishops with an agenda. That's who. These religious leaders were responsible for creating the environment that made it possible for Hitler to attempt his Master Plan.


Too much religion can be as dangerous as too little religion. The best example I can give is the blind faith the Hasidic rebbes had that G-d would not allow Hitler and the Nazis to do all the horrible things that they threatened to do. They believed the Messiah would come and save us all. Of course, that did not happen. The Hasidic rebbes were wrong!

Several times a year, Rabbi Cywiak lectures to Christian audiences about his Holocaust experiences. One asked, Did you ever wish you were a Christian so you wouldn't have had to experience the Holocaust. His answer is succinct and logical, far moreso than the query.

"What if I was born in a family of Nazis? I could have ended up killing Jewish children. Could I possibly wish for something like this?" The girl opened her mouth but didn't say anything. Not a word.

Rabbi Cywiak is eventually told that his family was shipped to Auschwitz.

My heart sunk. The glimmer of hope I held that they had found safety disappeared. Instead my worst fears had come true. Mom, Nechama, my three young brothers, were all murdered in Auschwitz.

In their honor, the survivor of the family, now my rabbi, prints a poem by another victim of the Nazis, Erwin Kirshbaum, called AUSCHWITZ. Its last two lines read:

The surprise is not that so many died,
The true surprise is that any survived.


Rabbi Cywiak's book is currently not available except through him. That means I will buy the books for my readers BUT you are asked to send payment before I purchase your copy.
I will keep the price at $28. for American addresses, including postage and a gift copy of my DVD/CD, Shabtai Tzvi, Labor Zionism And The Holocaust. Postage costs raise the price to $30 for outside the US.

And now a passage from Flight From Fear with me providing a visual explanation:

Rabbi Cywiak escapes the Nazis by sneaking into Russia. He than tries to escape the Communists by cutting a border fence into Afghanistan, the first stop on a long journey to Israel, but is caught. He is confronted by a Russian guard:

"What have you got here? Take it off."
He found the black boxes of my tefillin. He opened the boxes and removed the parchment. He tried to read it, but could not since it was in Hebrew. He said, "What is this? It must be secret spy code. He called another guard over and they escorted me to the office, each guard holding one of my arms.In the office, they started asking questions.
I told them, "This is used to pray."
"Pray? You're lying. It looks to me like secret code. What is the language?"
"Yah, Hebrew, right, This must be secret code. And for that, you get," and drew his finger across his throat.
I said, "Wait! Don't you have someone here who can read this?"
The other guard said, "Yeah, maybe Boris can. Call in Boris."
Someone asked for Boris. A big Russian guard and took the parchment with the Hebrew written on it...
"What are you talking about? Spies. Codes. These are prayers." He put the parchments back in the boxes. "This is teffilin. The Jews pray with this every day."
"Huh? How do you know this?"
He looked me in the eyes and didn't respond right away."My father used the exact same thing when he was alive. He prayed with one of these things every day, so let's forget about this. Let the man go."
I realized why he had been reluctant. In Russia it was against the law to practice religion. He could have been severely reprimanded for his admission. G-d bless him. That Russian officer saved my life.

For those who don't know what almost cost Rabbi Cywiak his life, by way of illustration, below is your reporter wearing tefillin:

Not long ago, M.S. wrote me asking for a way out of Israel after decades of hyper-patriotic loyalty. He wrote simply, "Israel sucked out my money and my life." What you should know about M.S. is that he sends out a highly popular Hebrew newsletter with much anger at the government of Israel and an equal balance of love for the Land of Israel. I will only use initials for him and all quotes in this piece to avoid complications, but if you're a Hebrew reading internet communicator, you likely know him. So you know, I offered to rent him a spare room in my Florida apartment if he needed an escape.
The list of high-charged Jews who went broke in Israel, or lived on the edge of financial nothing there and are now elsewhere, is huge. I will offer but a few choice examples like my friend M., editor of the famous website I met him at his home in Nevada and about the first thing he said to me was, "How do you make a small fortune in Israel? Come with a big fortune." That is his story and I'll spare you the details of the criminal shenanigans that forced him from Israel to America. Professor Jean Shaoul will do that with an article he published in mid-November.
But watch out. I'm going to interrupt him from time to time:

Oligarchy and inequality in Israel

By Jean Shaoul
A number of high-profile economic “successes” and technological achievements associated with Israel’s economy conceal one of the most polarised societies in the world.
Last May, Israel was admitted to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, underscoring its transformation into an advanced economy. Israel’s per capita GDP, at $28,365, is the fourth largest in the Middle East and larger than all its neighbours combined.

Thanks in large part to immigration from the Soviet Union, Israel currently has the highest per capita number of engineers and scientists, scientific publications and registered patents in the world. The Arrow, the world’s most advanced anti-missile missile, unmanned drones, the Given Imaging’s diagnostic pillcam, MRI and CAT scans, dental and medical imaging, drip irrigation and text messaging were all invented in Israel. All of the major IT, aerospace and aviation companies have subsidiaries in Israel. But the technological successes and the new wealth, flowing from Benyamin Netanyahu’s “free market” policies when he was finance minister in previous governments­most recently under Ariel Sharon from 2003 to 2005­has benefited only a narrow social layer.

First interruption. If you are not in the narrow layer, you'd better be adequately equipped to tolerate torture if you try to open a business. Established businesses do not tolerate upstarts fighting for a share of their pie and they put impossible obstacles in your way. S.A., now of Washington State, was bilked and bankrupted by her Israeli business partner and tried to escape the country. But a lien was put on her passport by the partner claiming she owed him money. She was stopped from leaving at the airport and slung back to Hell. The worst case of this was Zev A., a very talented and well published photographer, who three decades ago had a lien put on his passport over a small tax debt. His photographic equipment, including cameras, were legally seized from him, so he couldn't work to cover the debt. Interest was added to the principal of the small debt, quickly turning it into a sum he could never return. I saw him in Jerusalem 6 years ago. He looked like a street crazy, endlessly face-twitching, looking years older than his age, babbling nonsense. A woman, who I will not identify even by initials at her request, had a lien put on her passport 11 years before, escaping after a year. After over a decade she felt the pull of Zion again and flew back to Israel where the same story repeated itself. Her lesson; "If you accidentally left even one bill unpaid, they keep adding interest and demand you repay a gigantic amount. I learned, you can never safely return to Israel."

According to the 2009 Merrill Lynch World Wealth Report, Israel has 5,900 people with at least $1 million in liquid assets. Between 2005 and 2007, Israel produced more millionaires per capita than any other country. The Marker, Ha’aretz’s financial section, estimates that the wealth of the 500 richest people in Israel is $75 billion, equal to $150 million each. To put this in perspective, last year, Israel’s total GDP was $205 billion­making 500 people worth more than a third of this total. Even this fails to fully show the concentrated nature of Israeli wealth and power. The wealthiest 20 families control about half the stock market and 25 percent of the top companies in Israel, notably the newspapers, banks and high tech companies, through a vast pyramid of companies that involve very little of their own money. The families appoint their relations and close friends to manage these companies. Such corporate structures and trusts were outlawed in the United States more than a century ago. Even in Saudi Arabia, the world’s largest family-run business, corporate control by 70 ruling princes is less concentrated than in Israel. Israel’s Central Bank recently issued a report indicating its concerns about the stranglehold these families have over the economy and their “close”­a euphemism for corrupt­relations with Israeli politicians, likening it to a developing country.

Ahem, I'm back. Did you catch that? If you didn't, 20 families control half the Tel Aviv stock market. And they only hire their relatives and friends to management positions in the companies they own. Needless to say, they run the media with all its twists to the Left. But they also run the banks and one of them, Israel General Bank, just about got me to run out of Israel. I was one of five people who signed a tiny housing loan for one Martha Rosenberg of Italy. My risk was about $500. if she defaulted. What I didn't know is that she and three other crooks went from bank to bank co-signing loans for each other with the scheme of skipping the country after stealing about $100,000. Besides me, two other honest signers were charged with repaying all the gang stole. Never mind that bank security was breached, we were all charged $36,000 each for their theft. A thoroughly crooked lawyer, hired by the bank's owners the Safra brothers, named Yossi Cohen turned stalker against me, to the point of having me handcuffed and jailed so I'd give him money he didn't deserve and which I couldn't possibly have. My reaction was to investigate the bank. Oh, the crimes I discovered! My bill was finally reduced by 400%. I stayed in Israel but who of you wouldn't have taken the next flight to anywhere else?

The Kadima party, which former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon formed as a splinter party from Likud and Labour, is widely seen a political front for Israel’s oligarchs, with Shimon Peres, Israel’s president, as their man. The former Kadima leader and prime minister, Ehud Olmert, was forced to resign over numerous corruption scandals.

Not only is there vast evidence that Shimon Peres planned the murders of Rabin, Zeevi and brain-dead Sharon, and these are just a few of his crimes, others are far worse, according to Prof. Shaoul, he is the political leader of the oligarchs. Needless to say, Peres in any clinical test would prove to be a sociopath. He cares nothing for the Jewish people and is allowed to continue his damage because the thieves robbing the Israeli people blind depend on his leadership for their continued larceny. Only in this larcenous mindset could the Jews of Gaza and Northern Samaria have their homes bulldozed under their feet and be forced off their property, only to find the government unwilling to provide alternate housing and compensation. And just as insulting and nutty, the banks demanded mortgage payments for the Palestinian rubble their homes became.

Israel is one of the most socially polarised societies in the developed world. According to the Adva Institute, an Israeli equality and social justice NGO, top managers earn $523,000 a month, nearly 500 times the average monthly salary of $1,440. This is fives time the differential in the US. At the same time, one and a half million people, or more than 20 percent of the population, live in poverty­defined as living on 50 percent or less than the median income. Fully 34 percent of Israeli children live in poverty.

Your top managers, appointed through nepotism, earn over $2 million every 2 months while 34% of children are impoverished and malnourished. And no trustbuster will ever emerge to challenge the atrocity. The oligarchy is the state and they don't take kindly to strangers busting up their scam. The direct result is 31,000 Israelis left the country for good last year, most settling in the US. Meanwhile only 3,000 Jews moved from the US to Israel. In three years almost 100,000 Israelis moved out. The number of Israelis living elsewhere is estimated to be 700,000. Putting it another way, counting their families, if they had stayed, there would be another two million Jews in Israel. The oligarch mafia scares Jews out of Israel, and scares them from coming in.

Adva reported last April that in 2009, when GDP growth fell to less than one percent, employers’ share of GDP rose from 15 percent in 2008 to 17 percent, while workers’ share of GDP fell from 62 to 60 percent. Over the decade as a whole, when GDP rose by 30 percent, the employers’ share of national income rose from 14 percent to 17 percent, while workers saw their share fall from 66 percent to 60 percent, equivalent to a loss of $250 a month, or about one sixth of their income. While the economy has been growing at 5 percent a year, wages have been falling by 3 to 4 percent a year. Public spending on anti-poverty measures, education, health, transport and social security has been cut, while the wealthy have gained from tax cuts and the protection of capital gains.

And while the appointed employers get richer far faster than in any first world country, they don't have to pay taxes. Thanks to tax deductions the majority of Israeli charity is "contributed" by the deviants who caused the poverty. These greedy oligarchs are feasted by universities, orchestras and museums while...

The impact of Israel’s free market policies have been felt throughout Israeli society. The elderly have been particularly badly affected. Even those who survived the Nazi extermination of European Jewry, for whom Israel was supposed to provide a safe haven, have not been spared. Support groups claim that 80,000 survivors, one third of those living in Israel, do not have enough money to make ends meet and are forced to turn to soup kitchens, charities or welfare agencies.

...a third of the remaining Holocaust survivors in Israel eat at their soup kitchens.

Dear Readers,

I have to change my work strategy or I'll be in trouble soon. This is a query, nothing more for now.
Just know that my influence is increasing this year, while down the line, my supporters' bank accounts are decreasing. Every major Israeli media outlet is contacting me to be quoted for Rabin's 15th year murder anniversary. I have been given my own radio show and appear constantly on other shows. Barely anyone quits my newslist and it has grown to over 3500 readers including dozens of sites.
But in the past half year or so, people don't have the money to support my work. I called Joel Skousen of the subscription-based WorldAffairsBrief and he told me his cancellation rate was 60% at one point this year. BUT he advised me that his list costs $48/yr and what he is suffering is a bad patch. His income will allow him to recover. He insisted that I charge a fee or I will go under.
Look, I think $48/yr is inappropriate for me. I'd probably charge half that. Even in a recession, people have $12.50 for a half year of important news to them that they can't find anywhere else. My problem is I'm a bit frightened of losing the influence that comes with 3500 readers sending my work to their correspondents.
Will you stay with me if I switch to a subscription policy?
Let me know, please. Barry

Is it just me, or is everyone's in-box being flooded by groups opposed to the Ground Zero Mosque for moral reasons? The argument in short is, those Muslims killed 3000 Americans on this spot, and damned if they'll build a mosque on our holy cemetery. Jewish groups are the most vocal in their objections, and they had better be wary. If the Muslims were either incidental to 9-11 or not even involved, half their moral justification is gone. And if Israel was involved...oy vevoy lanu! ( I'm not translating it. The meaning is clear.)
Permit me to summarize something close to the real American-Israeli recent history, a portion of which I was responsible for uncovering, and much more remains buried deep.
In the winter of '91, Bush the First ordered Iraq attacked, and Israel was slammed with SCUD missiles. PM Shamir traded restraint for Saddam's overthrow. But Bush reneged on the deal and left Saddam in place to sow his signature murder and unrest. Israel called foul and, whoever really rules the place from the Labor Party, agreed to American conditions and cut a counter-deal for Saddam's body; they would invite the PLO back as partners in "peace." We'll skip the part where every filthy trick was used to get Labor back in power. For that, you buy my books.
In December '93, barely a month after the "historic" Oslo "peace" Accord was signed, I managed to finagle an interview with one of the two Israelis who negotiated it, Ron Pundak. He told me many things, but most shocking was the huge lie about who was sponsoring the Oslo treachery. "Warren Christopher was very skeptical at first but by March he came onboard," Pundak stated. President Clinton was a member of The Council On Foreign Relations (CFR), a 4200 member poli-sci club which, at the top, determines American foreign policy. His Secretary-of-State, Christopher (CFR), was guiding the Oslo talks between Israel and the PLO. The big big big lie came in August '93, when Clinton feigned shock that the Oslo talks took place and wasn't sure whether to accept them or not. Of course, within a few milliseconds he accepted them.
The fabulous folks who brought Israel "peace" helped bring down the three World Trade Center buildings. It was the third, an obscure little 47 storey building, that assures us this statement is true.
George Bush Junior was as much an activist as Clinton was a conniver. The Israelis, unknown to the Israeli public, and I stress, totally acting against the interests of the Israeli people, still wanted their end of the '91 deal; a dead Saddam. But the CFR had a clinker of a clause all ready; the evacuation of Jews from the Gaza Strip. And we know where that predictably led. However, the hushhush leaders of Israel agreed and the deal to get America back in Iraq, with a sidetrip to Afghanistan for mostly unrelated reasons, began.
WTC was owned by two Jews, one Israeli. The ground floor space was acquired by Frank Lowy, a self-confessed Mossad agent, who emigrated to Australia from Israel in 1952, and owned the 99-year lease for the 425,000 square foot retail portion of the destroyed World Trade Center.
The owner of the whole complex was Larry Silverstein.
Silverstein was interested in acquiring the entire World Trade Center complex, and put in a bid when the Port Authority put it up for lease in 2000. Silverstein won the bid when a deal between the initial winner and the Port Authority fell through, and he signed the lease on July 24, 2001, only weeks before the towers were destroyed in the 9-11 attacks. Following the attacks, Silverstein was awarded an insurance payment of more than three and a half billion dollars to settle his seven-week-old insurance policy. In addition, the Silverstein group sued the insurers liable for the World Trade Center for another three and a half billion dollars, claiming that by an obscure clause in their contract, the two planes constituted two separate terrorist attacks. In total, Silverstein was awarded nearly $7.2 billion in insurance money following the destruction of the Twin Towers.
And that's why all the guys call him Lucky Larry.
But that name may not stick for long because at 5:20 PM, in the shadows of the smoldering buildings 1 and 2, Larry ordered 47 storey Building 7 collapsed. And down in came in a perfect controlled demolition.
Larry was proud of his work and bragged about it:
Questions about the highly suspicious nature of the building's collapse remained comparatively muted until January 2004, when a PBS documentary, America Rebuilds, originally broadcast in September 2002, received attention across the Internet. The documentary was made infamous for one comment made by Larry Silverstein on the subject of 9/11. Silverstein states, "I remember getting a call from the, er, fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, "We've had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it. And they made that decision to pull and we watched the building collapse."

Needless to say, it took months of precise engineering work to organize this decision to "pull" the building. So how did Larry know his building was rigged with demolition explosives? Come on, Larry, tell us! HOWDJA KNOW?
The most logical reason why Building 7 had to be brought down was that Flight 93 was supposed to have crashed into it but, inexplicably, crashed instead into Pennsylvania. With fire marshals snooping around, the whole plot would be exposed unless Building 7 was quickly destroyed.
And onward the peace diplomacy continued. Silverstein escaped his blatant crimes and attended a CFR party to raise funds for the evacuator of Gaza's Jews, Ariel Sharon.
A report by Israel's Channel Ten television reporter Raviv Drucker last night provided a detailed report on the Sunday night affair. He related how the organizer and hostess - NIna Rosenwald - sent letters to selected invitees asking for $10,000 per person or couple, and how the 5th Avenue location was closed off for over an hour for what the police described as a "top secret" reason. Only the 15 invited couples were permitted to enter Rosenwald's apartment, after having paid the minimum amount in advance.
Rosenwald is a member of the CFR (Council of Foreign Relations). Among the participants at the dinner were World Trade Center insurance beneficiary Larry Silverstein.
A reporter asked Silverstein on his way out if Sharon had thanked him for his donation. Silverstein replied, "No. But it's not necessary; we're here to support the man."

To those patriots who are fighting the Ground Zero mosque, the Muslims have the pat moral hand and you are just blindly doing the filthiest political work there is: GIVING AID AND SUCCOR TO THE REAL TERRORISTS.
And that, ladies and gentlemen and distinguished guests from planet Bizarro, is the upside down, backwards, but factual truth from dying Planet Earth.
