Tension is building against the Jews in America. They are being set up. Slowly, slowly the heat is being increased and the pot is coming to a boil. The question is, how much longer until it boils over?
When Bernie Madoff "made off" with millions of his investors' dollars, he became a very high-profile Jew and for all the worst reasons. Marc Rich, who also got "rich" from financial misdealings, was another high-profile Jew. He received a controversial presidential pardon from outgoing President Bill Clinton in January of 2001, allegedly because his wife Denise (nee Eisenberg) made a very substantial "donation" to Clinton's Presidential Library. But that was before 9/11 and before the current financial crisis, so the pot only simmered. However, his name is back in the news today, a reminder of what was past, because Denise Rich, a very high-profile Jewess in her own right, has renounced her US citizenship in order to save millions in taxes.
Of course, there are plenty of high-profile non-Jews doing the same kinds of things, but it is the Jews who are remembered. And then, something like this comes along, which just adds fuel to the antisemitic fires...
