Chabad: Jew vs. Jew

Nov. 21, 2006--As Chabad minority leaders in Crown Heights concluded their annual mutual admiration society this weekend (a.k.a., "the shluchim convention"), "Hasidim" on both sides of the schism opted to end the festival with a good old fashion brawl just to show who was boss. Take a look at your tzedakah dollars at work.

According to Chabad.info: "Witnesses report that the extreme violence began around 2:00 am when six Shomrim members [members of the Shemtov-Krinsky faction] grabbed a [Meshichist] bochur, took him outside and beat him mercilessly, leaving him lying on the floor unconscious. Hatzalah was called and took the bochur to the hospital." Then all hell broke loose.

What does Aguch (Corporate Chabad, the "anti-Meshichists") say? "They started it!"

Chabad.info notes that damages include tearing the psak din poster which has Rabbonim’s signatures proclaiming the Rebbe the Moshiach. He who controls the present controls the past.

Now I'm not saying Krinsky or Shemtov directly instigated the fights, but Meshichistin would never have torn up the banners proclaiming the Rebbe Moshiach. So who authorized the post-fight vandalism of 770?

Thought for the day: Tzedukah should be given to the poor and needy. Tzedukah should be given to legitimate Torah institutions.

Or you can throw your bread to jackals and watch them tear eachother apart over the crumbs.

Interesting - I saw some of this on the Chabad web site. What amazes me about my fellow idiot Jews is that they think that somehow even "proving" that it is another Jew's fault makes them look clean. Nobody would have cared or even known about this incident if Chabad didn't put it up. Why not just NOT put up any reference to the fact that there was a fight? Why not just REFRAIN from educating the world that religious Jews actually can make ugly scenes just as awful as the rest? This is ridiculous. The Mashiach is twisting in his grave about what is going on in This World.

Was the equipment confiscated by Krinsky & co. so that corporate Chabad could introduce it as evidence in their upcoming court case regarding Sunday night's "festivities"?

I have no idea who stole the equipment (confiscated implies a right to the equipment, which only the owners have)...Please note that I have no love for the radical, violent meshichistim. But the Krinsky-Shemtov bunch are just as guilty for the cesspool that Chabad Inc. has become. --Hank

Sholom--
Just read your profile. I'm not a preacher--just a small voice like yours--but I think it's a mistake to blame the Rebbe for what these power-greedy frauds have done in his name. That's like blaming Moshe Rabbainu for the deeds of the meraglim. When they were sent out, they were kosher...The Rebbe, while healthy, was a great man, but just a man. He shouldn't be held accountable for the acts of so-called followers. That's like blaming Rebbe Nachman of Breslov for the NaNaNaNachman lunatic grafiti we see spray-painted all over Eretz Yisroel...

Fascinating and thank you for providing the graphic photos. My question to you is whether this calls for the creation of a new sport, the "CFC" aka "Chabad/Chassidic Fighting Championship" and whether such events can generate additional revenues for the Company via pay per view? The beauty of this revenue model is that these "donations" can be fully tax deductible and perhaps money could be successfully laundered throughout this community as well as others. I am always fond of looking at the bright side of life and it seems that we could easily turn this encounter into a big, deductible kiddush Hashem.
