!!! Again support for my story !!!
On 6 December 2000, I ran into the Dutch royal family in Bangkok, while they were misbehaving. Ever since I have been followed and stalked 24/7. Looking back, it was a set-up. And again I can show you another piece of the puzzle that proves my story.
Two days after running into the Oranje-Nassau family in Bangkok, I had left Thailand and went to Siem Reap in Cambodia. The next day we met a guy called Baruch Thaler, who was with two other Jewish friends. While I was convinced he could understand us (I was with a Belgium friend) when we were talking Dutch, he told us he was from New York.
By now I know:
- Baruch Thaler was born in Antwerp, Belgium, and he speaks fluently Dutch. Since my travel companion was Belgium too and Baruch Thaler talked a lot about his youth in Brooklyn, it is certain he deliberately did not tell us where he was from.
- Baruch Thaler was also a close friend of Ari Halberstam, who died in the Brooklyn Bridge terrorist attack of 1994 (see article below).
- Also in 1994, he was key witness of the funeral of the possible Messias of the (Jewish) Lubavitch Hacidic community in New York: Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson.
What about that? What are the odds of being so close to three high-profile events?
The picture left is recent (NY). Picture right is in Siem Reap, 10 December 2000.
What happened on the Brooklyn Bridge?
On 1 March 1994 in New York City, mr Rashid Baz, a Lebaneze immigrant, shot at a van with 15 orthodox Jews on the Brooklyn Bridge . The victims were part of the traditional Chabad-Lubavitch Orthodox community and were students. One died (Ari Halberstam) and three others were injured.
Ari Halberstam was the son of Mrs. Devorah Halberstam and David Halberstam, prominent members of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement. He was raised under the personal supervision of the seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneerson. Ever since this attack, these people have heavily advocated gun control in New York.
Student, 15, Had Ties To Family Of Rabbi
By DAVID FIRESTONE, Published: March 2, 1994
Aaron Halberstam, the 15-year-old student who was the most seriously injured victim of yesterday’s shooting on the Brooklyn Bridge, was known throughout the Lubavitch Hasidic community for his exceptionally close relationship to the family of Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, the group’s grand rabbi.
Friends of the Halberstam family and Lubavitch officials said yesterday that the shooting, which left Mr. Halberstam in grave condition with an inoperable brain injury at St. Vincent’s Hospital and Medical Center, was an especially heavy blow for Rabbi Schneerson because he had personally tutored the boy in the Hebrew alphabet eight or nine years ago.
“It was a very rare privilege,” said Baruch Thaler, a friend and fellow student of Mr. Halberstam at the Oholei Torah Yeshiva, where all four victims attended school. “I don’t know of any other boys who have done that.”
Rabbi Joseph Spielman, chairman of the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council, said Aaron’s father, Hesed Halberstam, was the butler and personal manager of the grand rabbi’s household for many years until Rabbi Schneerson’s wife, Chaya, died in 1988. As Close as a Grandson
“He was a very loyal person who worked closely with the rebbe, and the rebbe always looked after the father and the family,” Rabbi Spielman said.
Mrs. Schneerson was particularly close to Aaron Halberstam, and was known to treat him as the grandson she never had, friends said. They described him as a quiet boy who excelled in sports and was known as a peacemaker.
“When there were riots in Crown Heights we wanted to fight back and Aaron said ‘relax,’ ” said another schoolmate, Leiby Heller, 17.
The Halberstams are members of a well-known rabbinical dynasty that began 140 years ago. The Bobover rabbi, who led a Hasidic sect in Borough Park, is Rabbi Schlomo Halberstam, part of the youth’s extended family, and several prominent Lubavitch leaders, including Rabbi Shea Hecht and Rabbi Joseph J. Hecht, are his mother’s cousins.
The victim’s prominence only increased the feelings of rage and anguish in the Lubavitch community.
“It would have been enough of a tragedy even if he hadn’t been so close to the rebbe,” said Michael Abramson, a neighbor of the Halberstams. “But knowing how much this must affect the rebbe only makes it worse.”
Although police officials said they had no evidence that the shooting was premeditated or religious in nature, many Lubavitchers said the shooting had to have been the work of Arab terrorists seeking revenge for last week’s attack on a mosque in Hebron. Rabbi Shmuel Butman, director of the Lubavitch Youth Organization, called the shooting unquestionably an act of terrorism.
“He saw Jews in the van, and to a terrorist, all Jews are the same,” Rabbi Butman said. “He may or may not have been an Arab, but he was clearly a terrorist committing an act of nationalism against the Jewish people.”
But other Lubavitchers were more circumspect. Rabbi Yehudah Krinsky, the official spokesman for the Lubavitch movement, repeatedly refused at a news conference yesterday afternoon to characterize the attack as either anti-Semitic or terrorist.
None of the Hasidim mingling outside the Lubavitch headquarters voiced any thoughts of retaliation.
“Our way is not to retaliate,” Rabbi Butman said. “Our way is to go to the synagogue and pray for the lives of these students and for the Guardian of Israel to watch over us.”
Shortly after 1 P.M., in fact, a Lubavitch computer printed out the Hebrew names of the three most seriously injured victims and the names of their mothers. The list was posted in the center of the group’s huge synagogue so that members could accurately include the full names of the victims in their prayers.
Nachum Sossonkin, an 18-year-old student who suffered serious head injuries during the shooting, also was admitted to St. Vincent’s Hospital. He was born near the Golan Heights in Israel and came to the United States three years ago to study, said an uncle, Zalman Posner. His father, Abraham Sossonkin, was a veteran of two Israeli wars, and the young man had worked for several years at a construction job in Israel to get the money to pay for his trip to Brooklyn, Mr. Posner said.
Levi Wilhelm, also 18, was in stable condition after undergoing surgery to remove a bullet from his abdomen, Brooklyn Hospital officials said. Classmates said he was born in Crown Heights into a family of seven children and worked summers at a Jewish camp in Toronto.
Yaakov Schapiro, 17, was injured in the hand and grazed in the head by glass shards from a bullet during the shooting. He was treated at St. Vincent’s Hospital and released.
ps. The mother of Ari Halberstam is Devorah Halberstam. Since her son’s death she has become a political activist in the “gun control” movement. She is known to have strong ties to both the rabbis in the Brooklyn communities and the New York police. She is seen as a major force behind anti-terrorism laws in New York since 1994, including “Ari’s Law” for controlling gun trafficking in NY.
pps. Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the grand rabbi and spiritual leader of the Lubavitch movement in Brooklyn New York from 1951 until 1994. He also died in 1994, on the 12th of June, a few months after the shooting. In the Hasidic community in Brooklyn, he obtained a bit of a cult status, as some believe he will be the Messiah, who will return from his death. Op 12 juni 1942 kreeg Anne Frank overigens een dagboek voor haar verjaardag.
