I don't know how many of you remember this revolting scene from 2006 (or thereabout):
And if you don't remember, no worries - here is a reminder from and old post:
The infamous rabbi, according to the article, is not only a despicable piece of shit, but also an idiot who cannot even produce a consistent story, not to mention his self-aggrandizing lies:Well, and what is our good (even if self-appointed) "Rabbi" Moshe Aryeh Friedman is doing these days? To start with, he decided to change his garb. From an ultra-Orthodox uniform to a less conspicuous frum, but one with substance, whose surroundings reflect his new station in life.
...Moshe Aryeh Friedman - by his own account, the chief rabbi of Vienna's Jewish community, but a "kook" and an extremist who represents only himself, according to Austria's established Jewish community...
But his position in Vienna is different than the one he expressed in Tehran, where he was quoted as saying the Holocaust was a "successful fiction," and that it is "legitimate to cast doubt on some of the statistics" with regard to it. On Friday, Friedman claimed that he does not deny the fact that 6 million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust. His sudden change in position may be explained by fear over being prosecuted in Austria, where publicly doubting the Holocaust is a crime.
In this picture "Rabbi" Friedman made himself comfy in a five star hotel in Doha, Qatar. If you browse his Facebook page a bit, you shall immediately notice that the newborn "Rabbi" moves in exalted circles of the nouveau riches now, in places like Marbella (Spain), Dubai, Vienna, Warsaw, Paris, hobnobbing with celebs, politicians and whatnot. He is proudly reporting on his family's shopping sprees in the places mentioned. It might be interesting to learn what are the sources of funding for all that opulence, but certainly it is not something our "Rabbi" is interested in disclosing.
Dov Segal in his post The life and times of Ahmadinejad’s pet Jew tells the story, and it's a fascinating read. Just a quote from this post:
In August 2014 he gave an interview to a Belgian magazine. In the interview he maintained that Jewish schools in Antwerp indoctrinated youth to go and fight in Gaza. He claimed that since the new round of fighting in operation Protective Edge, 50 to 100 Jewish youth had left to fight in Gaza. He further ranted against Jewish "sharia schools". He compared the orthodox community to IS.Read the whole story. But not before another saucy reminder:
Israel and Israelis were worse than IS. According to him, the “genocide” in Gaza was unique because it targeted children.
"I had more than one meeting with his excellency, President Ahmadinejad," Friedman said. "The president first recognized me at the conference in Tehran and he was especially friendly. There may be only one picture in which we are photographed kissing, but in fact we kissed 20 or 30 times."
