The Weberman Mishpocah

So, Paul Krassner gets up one morning out there in the desert of Southern California and forwards me an email with a link to a wonderful new web site dedicated to the Satmar mensch Nechemya Weberman, who is facing a serious time out behind bars for sex crimes. I’ve long struggled with the question of who is more despicable: African-Americans who won’t “snitch” on a someone who has killed a black person or haredi Jews who won’t go to law enforcement authorities when they know a child has been raped. A pox on both their houses. Read this piece in The Forward about the family of Nechemya Weberman. And remember: you don’t need a Weberman to know which way the wind blows.
