Elie Wiesel: A self-hating Jew?

Elie Wiesel says he can't forgive Bernie Madoff CNN – February 27, 2009

Elie Wiesel, the Nazi concentration camp survivor who went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize, showed little inclination this week to make peace with accused swindler Bernie Madoff, whom he called "one of the greatest scoundrels, thieves, liars, criminals."

Uhh, Madoff a liar? Wouldn't that put Bernie in the same company as someone who writes fictions about his Holocaust™ memories, like the author who wrote the now discredited fable "Night?" Birds of a feather, Elie.
"Could I forgive him? No," the 80-year-old told a panel assembled Thursday by Conde Nast's Portfolio Magazine at New York's 21 Club to discuss Madoff, whose alleged victims included Wiesel and his foundation, The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity.

"To forgive, first of all, would mean that he would come on his knees and ask for forgiveness," the Auschwitz survivor said. "He wouldn't do that."

Oops, better be careful there, Elie!! Your getting awful close to the definition of "anti-Semitic."! The ADL will be all over your ass and in some countries, you'd be arrested!
Madoff, 70, is accused of running a Ponzi scheme that may have cost investors up to $50 billion. He faces one charge of securities fraud in connection with an international scheme that has cost some investors their life savings and could land him in prison for up to 20 years.

Yes, prison time for "Madeoff" Madoff? That's why Bernie is under "house arrest" in his 10 million dollar penthouse apartment.
Wiesel said a wealthy friend who has known Madoff for 50 years introduced them. The two men met twice over dinner, and Wiesel checked with financial experts whom he trusted before investing all of his and his wife's personal money.

Then, once Madoff had gained his trust, Wiesel invested all $15.2 million that his foundation had amassed, he said.

"We thought he was God, we trusted everything in his hands," the Boston University humanities professor said.

Wiesel put his friend's loss at $50 million.

Wiesel rejected the suggestion that "affinity fraud," the tendency for people to trust others of similar background, played any role in leaving him vulnerable to Madoff. Both men are Jewish.

Uhhh, Elie, if you say there was no "affinity fraud" here, then that means that some of those financial advisors you talked to before investing with Bernie weren't Jewish? You do trust us GOY, don't you?
"It's not the Jewishness in him, it's the inhumanity in this man who simply believed he can go around depriving people of their livelihoods. What he has done to certain people, it breaks my heart," he said.

Elie, consider yourself lucky. You should see what they deprive people of in the world's largest concentration camp, Gaza.
Food, drinking water, meds, hospitals and life itself, thanks to some of your Kosher Kommandants.

"At the end, he went down to swindle thousands and thousands of people, and hurt thousands and thousands of people. Take our little foundation. My wife takes care of 1,000 Ethiopian children in Israel. What he does to them -- we were going to open a third center in Jerusalem. We cannot do it now. What [he has] done to others, to hospitals, to educational institutions, my God! Didn't he think?"

Wiesel said he is planning legal action against Madoff but called for the federal government to bail out charities just as it has bailed out carmakers and banks.

"I think it would be a great gesture that the Obama administration should show, we really think of those who are helpless and who are doing with their money only good things."

Wiesel offered a punishment he would like to see meted out to the financier, who is under house arrest but has not been indicted.

"I would like him to be in a solitary cell with a screen, and on that screen, for at least five years of his life, every day and every night there should be pictures of his victims, one after the other after the other, always saying, 'Look, look what you have done to this poor lady, look what you have done to this child, look what you have done.'

"But nothing else -- he should not be able to avoid those faces, for years to come. This is only a minimum punishment."

Despite what he called his family's "personal tragedy," Wiesel said he is organizing a benefit concert for his foundation and has been overwhelmed by unsolicited donations....

What's needed here is some type of museum that would depict the horrors these people who got fleeced by one of their own. A perpetual flame, kept by the burning of 100 dollar bills!

Some type of... oh, let's say a Holocaust™ memorial, to honor the SIX MILLION who lost their live savings. I know, the actual number was only in the thousands, but there's something catchy about jacking up that number to SIX MILLION.

We could name the museum the "Yadda Yadda Yadda Vashem" Museum of Financial Horrors.

Bet some US Congressmen are already working on giving poor Elie some relief..... using YOUR money.

Importing Ethiopians? Why would they need to do that, when they could be helped in their own country? Help anyone but the Palestinians, and import anyone else, in order to make sure the occupation's demographics are cleansed of any semitic arabs.

I bet eLie is in on it, he and his buddies scammed it all.

Elie was so consumed by greed that he didn't think twice when he was getting those 20% per annum returns on his investment.

Thank you, "Abraham" Bird.

Do you work for the Jewish Internet Defense Forces or the MOSSAD?

Maybe you're just a garden variety Zionist who only sees things thru Star of David shaped glasses.

Why are you so nurvous?
I'm not a Jew, so relax. But I despise Jew haters.

You see Jews and Israel only from your blackkk and darkkk binoculars which you reversed handle. Even when the wind howls around your house you are frigtened of the MOSSAD. Go to see some doctor. I heard that Jewish doctors are the best (-;

what makes you think he's nurvous [sic]?

Mossad should be nervous, as should every zionist out there, as their house of bloody cards is about to collapse from its own blood drenched weight.

Get lost Abe, you zionist fiend - and while you're at it, take a refresher course in spelling.

The simple quotes straight from Elie himself are gold. When asked about the fact that Madoff, part of a doubly exclusive scam structure targeting only super wealthy Jews in a posh virtual ghetto, was Jewish, Elie fumbles and jumps too soon to clumsily dissociating Jewishness and clever stealing. Of course Elie and everyone else trusted Madoff specifically because he was "their crowd," several have actually said so and it's highly illogical to think otherwise (is Jewishness not an issue for a man who supposedly confronted its near annihilation?!). Elie's idea of hell is also hilarious (compare the minimum punishment for a criminal who doesn't sink to the unforgivable depth of taking Elie's money). But the best part is when he really slips up and implies there is a procedure for actually getting forgiveness. Even when Judaism the philosophy is separated from its celebricriminal representatives, which is only sophistry anyway, its outdated mechanisms for explaining and dealing with pain leave highly intelligent people looking like animals.
