There Is No Business like Shoa Business

The fraudsters duped people into applying who were not eligible so everyone could share funds that never should have never been allocated in the first place.

(LONDON) - Seventeen people have been charged in the US with the theft of $42m of Holocaust compensation funds provided by the German government.

US Attorney Preet Bharara said ‘we are dealing here with “thousands of false applications.” The fraudsters duped people into applying who were not eligible so everyone could share funds that never should have never been allocated in the first place.

"If ever there was a cause that you would hope and expect would be immune from base greed and criminal fraud, it would be ‘the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany’, which every day assists thousands of poor and elderly victims of Nazi persecution," said Bharara. "Sadly, those victim’s funds were themselves victimized."

FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge Janice K. Fedarcyk said in a statement, "Each of the defendants played a role in creating, filing and processing fraudulent claims on behalf of non-qualifying applicants — and dividing up the spoils. Funds established and financed by the German government to aid Holocaust survivors were siphoned off by the greedy, and not paid out, as intended, to the worthy."

The FBI was courageous enough to look into holocaust greed. I wonder how long will it take for our historians to be brave enough to treat WWII as a historical chapter. How long will it take to European countries to remove Holocaust denial laws and reinstate freedom of speech? How long will it take before we manage to look at Jewish history as a continuum instead of isolated patches of victimhood loaded with false legitimacy to rob Palestinians.

I guess not too long.
