!לא תעמוד על דם רעך

You shall not stand idly by your brothers blood!

“To characterize the complaint as prolix, replete with hearsay and irrelevancies, would be charitable

Judge Leo Glasser (on the claims of Mesira)

From Parshas Machne Menachem booklet:

…“After they were informed by the bank, Spritzer and Schreiber, at the end of winter, 1997, decided to sue us in Federal court under RICO for over $2,000,000! Concocting a bunch of libels and falsehoods, they accused us of terrorizing, mail fraud and embezzlement, that Meir Hershkop had taken money for himself and tried to gain control of the camp by hiring his son-in-law as its manager.

This was a diversionary tactic to enable them to seize full control of the camp.They succeeded at first giving the judge a negative impression of us. They brought false witnesses including Joseph Spielman, Yaakov Herzog, and Yisroel Sandhaus, who all testified falsely against us in court! Spielman testified that his van had been burned and he believed it was Hershkop who did it. This testimony persuaded the judge to reopen the bank account for them and issue a restraining order against us, forbidding us to come in contact with the plaintiffs or with the camp.”

Read for yourself and come to your own conclusion!
