Look at what happened to Khordokovsky for claiming compensation over Yukos, or an even .... that feeds you, only this hand bites back.
oh! eli, this is probably a step by step procedure of converting dictators to accomplished antisemites.

Eli, what me messiah?

Seriously, how is it that with Putin's help Chabad can dominate Orthodox Judaism in Russia and at the same time sue Russia in the courts of Putin's avowed enemy?
Russia has no love for being take to court in foreign places. Look at what happened to Khordokovsky for claiming compensation over Yukos, or an even better example of Franz Sedelmayer, who has sought just 2M euros from Russia in Germany and Sweden.

This sounds like biting the hand that feeds you, only this hand bites back.

"The Russian government argues it is a sovereign nation and US courts have no jurisdiction over it."

Absolutely correct, and I do not see any freezing of Russian assets by any U.S. Federal court any time over what is essentially a private matter.

I got an idea though, why don't you invite Putin for one of your vodka drinking gatherings and see if that convinces that you guys have a lot of things in common besides corruption? That will be ... your insatiable crave for vodka.

they have to always be a burden on the u.s.a, wicked russia and mostly on the jewish people.
in this case, for what?
a silly library of among others some conan doyle books?
anything to appear as martyrs.
what did some say?
they are paving the way for new x'stianity!

This spat does not belong in the American court system. It is none of our business. Our judges should their time protecting American children from local pedophiles rather than injecting themselves the property affairs of the German, Polish and Russian governments. Good fences make good neighbors.

The Russians should just do the right thing and give the books back. One would hope though that if Chabad gets the books back they are preserved in appropriate archival/library conditions. I've seen the way Chabad treats books and it is not pretty - just like at any of their siddurim.

His name is actually Bryan Mark Rigg.

In the prologue the Nazis knock on the door and the Rebbe motions to let them in.

On page 113 they break down the door to get in.

"Ray'yatz"

I love how Lubavitch refers to this family of charlatens (the Schneersohns) with the acronyms of their names to lend them legitimacy. Since Jewish sages throughout history have been referred to by these acronyms ("Rashi", "Rambam", "Ramban"), these Lubavitch idolaters try to bring their "rebbes'" names into legitimacy by referring to them by their acronyms.

ah-pee-chorus

Bryan Brigg's book is nonsense. It's full of contradictions, I wouldn't put much faith in what he writes there.

Fear not, whatever source of information that criticizes Orthodox Jews, especially an Orthodox Jewish leader, must be %100 percent accurate in Shmarya's book.

Do they really exist anymore?

So the books were in Poland

Golly that country was overunned over three times
First by the Huns and Red Army. Then by the Huns. Then by the Red Army.

Eli, what me messiah?

I don't get it. Isn't Chabad in tight with Putin, who is buddies with Beral Lazar?
They must figure the Russian foreign ministry is too stupid to notice they are playing a double game. And they must be right.

nachos

May they should try to beat up Putin. We already know Chabad is capable of beating up 80 year old women over the book collection. Perhaps, they might have better luck with Putin

Jacob

make that

Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I assume they have their reasons why they are pursuing it.

I wish them luck!
