Yossi Gestetner complains that some in the media call Rabbi Nechemya Weberman a rabbi when he really isn't because, in Gestetner's view, only a rosh yeshiva or major rabbi is really a rabbi. He also complains that Satmar is being caricatured by the press, even though Satmar hasidim have demonized the alleged victim of Weberman, calling her a whore and trash and describing her as a missile about to destroy the hasidic community. In fact, one of the two Satmar rebbes made this essential claim about the 17-year-old alleged rape victim last night at a major Satmar dinner before Gestetner was interviewed.
The best part of this interview comes during the qestions from listeners, when Gestetner is asked about his previous employment by Weberman's defense committee – a conflict of interest the ever dishonest Gestetner hadn't bothered to divulge.
