And now you can understand all of the college students and anti-Israel protesters. When you come from or are presented with a certain convincing perspective, your mind is locked in that these are the facts and your mind has no doubts.

Receiving hatred is the default status as a Jew. Hating others isn't, there is no parallel. One view is a reasonable defense mechanism, the other is baseless offense.
Visibly Jewish

Besides Rubashkin, when is the last time that the US legal system has been illegally weaponized to single out someone because of his religion?
Who said the Rabbi was targeted because of religion?

The legal system in this country is beyond a joke.

And the ďaskanimĒ and politicians that you think are your friends, arenít.

Why isnít Schnall etc making a ruckas?

I once bit into a mushy grape and now I understand why I was spat on for being Jewish.

Is that a fact or feeling?

It's a feeling that comes from having lived this case for the past 7 years. From sitting in the courtroom, to watching closely how it was covered in the press, to reading the comments online that had to do with this case and seeing how it was exploited by RUOC. There is no question in my mind that catcalls from the sidelines have contributed to giving the prosecution the drive to keep up the relentless hounding.

NJ Globe is doing a great job pumping out these stories!

https://newjerseyglobe.com/judiciary/more-accusations-that-nicodemo-lied-to-a-grand-jury/

(BTW, he keeps saying that Paone ruled it was an intentional Brady violation. He has that point wrong. He didn't rule that it was intentional.)

Incorrect.
All those who spoke up are blatant antisemites- incorrect.
There were blatant antisemites who spoke at the meeting- correct.

The way I view it, there a 4 non "Anti-Semitic" reasons to not want Frum Yidden moving in:

1. The broken funding formula that has completely wrecked the Lakewood school budget, will likely have similar effects on the (already in trouble for unrelated reasons) Jackson school budget.

2. Frum yidden require shuls in residential areas.

3. They have seen the corruption with approvals in Lakewood and don't want any of that in Jackson

4. Because of the way the infrastructure is currently set up, Jackson is going to see a lot more traffic.

The best thing to happen to Frum Yidden in Jackson is when Jackson Township messed themselves over in 2017 and dug their own grave. The lawsuit ensures that there can be shuls in residential areas and they have no more cards.

That being said, there are certainly many anti-Semites that use some of these arguments to back up their hate. But they are bad at disguising their contempt. In the end of the day times change and cities evolve and develop.

In regards to the commentators wanting "their peace".To quote one of public commentator, "Jackson isn't exactly Kansas." And most of those commentators only moved to Jackson within the last 10 years, which destroys any credibility they might have.

These are just my opinions.

Does the NJ AG office have any internal investigation into Nicodemo that we know about?

There has been no public comment from them about this. I would love to pop this question on Platkin at a press conference, but so far nobody has.

I mean I'd also be open to corruption if I was a lawyer and only making $74k a year. That number is shocking to me
