I'm sick and tired of all this Bernie bashing. I'm not saying that he is not a crook. He is. But Bernie bashing is not about Bernie Madoff. It's about Jews and about how they relate to themselves. Let's not forget that our halacha prohibits us to extradite and Madoff was processed by a legal system alien to Judaism and he was convicted by a goy court. What is more, his "capture" is based on his own declaration raised, not on investigators closing up on him. Such declarations would not have been receivable in a Beit Din, under Jewish Law: we are not allowed to testify against a relative and we are considered our own relatives. So, “confessions” are illegal in Judaism. Let's also not forget that prison terms are not a Jewish form of punishment. Crooks we convict for restitution of the damage with a surcharge. Idol worshippers we stone to death. Let us also not forget that Mr. President Hussein Obama's stimulus package, as well as all public spending operations, technically, are the exact same thing as a Ponzi scheme: new investors pay out old investors or, tax payers bail out tax consumers. So, before you get so upset, please go and learn your Torah. Be more Jewish and maybe less - American?
