Williamsburg Hasidim Attack Cancer Charity, Causing Ban

Hasidim in Williamsburg posted and circulated a letter Wednesday calling on hasidim to call RCCS and demand to know why RCCS is providing "entertainment" and "singers" at its live charity auction held Thursday, causing people to watch on the "dirty Internet.…On one hand you are trying to make people healthy and with the other hand you are making people [spiritually] sick.” The live Internet feed of the auction was subsequently blocked in several zip codes by RCCS.

Williamsburg letter against RCCS auction on Internet 12-6-2012

Is this letter the unsigned work of Satmar's Va'ad HaTznius, its infamous modesty squad?

Because of the ongoing child sexual abuse trial of Rabbi Nechemya Weberman, which involves Weberman's work with the Va'ad HaTznius – the existence of which Satmar now needs to deny – this letter may very well be the Va'ad's unsigned work.

Here's how The Lakewood Scoop describes the letter:

A letter circulating and hanging yesterday in Williamsburg called for its residents to ban tonight’s live RCCS auction. The letter, which was not signed by any Rabbonim, asked Williamsburg residents to call the organization and demand answers as to why they are providing ’entertainment’ and ‘singers’ – causing people to watch the live stream on the ‘dirty Internet’.

“On one hand you are trying to make people healthy and with the other hand you are making people sick”, the letter in Yiddish read.…

Last night, when people went to watch the live auction onlne, many were greated with the following warning screen:

What did these Satmar hasidim effectively ban? A charity that does this:

RCCS, a recognized 501(c)3 organization, provides an array of services for cancer-stricken patients in need; primary among them is the subsidizing of health insurance premiums, enabling them to obtain the best possible medical care.

The first and foremost goal of RCCS is to ensure that every cancer patient is covered by the absolute best medical coverage that money can buy.

RCCS has helped thousands of patients fight cancer by paying for their health insurance.

RCCS has spent well over $25,000,000 on behalf of cancer-stricken patients. On average, for every $1.00 RCCS expends on a patient, the patient's insurance company pays $20.00; some higher.

Insurance companies have paid out over half a billion dollars on behalf of RCCS patients.

I wonder if they also banned this in Iran?

these arseholes are of the same ILK as of the extreme MUSLIM sects. basically all mental fuckups. no apology for the f word. and they want peace in the middle east ho ho ho? (am not living in us).

Hopefully the stream is being recorded and made available later on YouTube for viewing.

Knowing that cancer causes great suffering, I shall resist the strong temptation to wish that those behind the letter would themselves contract cancer.

And I hope that RCCS will continue to aid cancer victims and their families.

Most Charedim don't believe in cancer (or any other form of medical) screening anyway, so what's the problem?

gotta laugh at the last line of the Yiddish: "Make [your] money in a kosher way and you will lack for nothing."

From Williamsburg - the city built on outright fraud, food stamps fraud, section 8 fraud, medicaid fraud, unemployment fraud, and Judaism fraud.

Technical question...

How can a website be blocked in a certain geographical area / zip code? Does the "internet" know the physical location of the user?

You can selectively block IP addresses or groups of IP addresses based on their geographic location.

99% of Williamsburgh knows to ignore these ridiculous letters. Only Shmarya bothers to give their writers the attention they crave.

Doctors generally treat cancer of the gallbladder that has come back (recurred) in the same way as stage 3 or 4 gallbladder cancer. But your treatment will depend on whether you have had radiotherapy or surgery in the past. And on where your cancer has come back. There is a maximum amount of radiotherapy that you can have to any one part of your body. If you have too much it can cause damage to healthy body tissues. So if you have had radiotherapy before, you may not be able to have it again.

Thank for sharting these info with us! I like your blog and themes & colors.
