Daybreak: Rubashkin Convicted

Plus a Ponzi scheme in Florida, Nazi imagery, and more in the news

Print Email

• Shalom Rubashkin was convicted of 86 out of 91 fraud charges during his tenure as owner of the Agriprocessors kosher meat plant in Iowa; “combined sentences could reach over 1,250 years,” says the JTA. [JTA]
• Meantime, the Ponzi scheme allegedly perpetrated by Florida attorney Scott Rothstein is growing in scope as the FBI investigates and is now suspected to involve over $1 billion and thousands of investors in the United States and abroad. [AP]
• A B’nai Brith Canada ad in the National Post pointed out the “common objectives of Nazism and radical Islam”; the group Canadian Jewish Holocaust Survivors is angry that Jewish leaders would “trivialize the Shoah.” [JTA]
• But Pro-Palestinian protesters in Brazil carried posters of Israeli President Shimon Peres, who is currently visiting their country, sporting a telltale mustache and labeled “Shimon Hitler.” [Ynet]
• And the EveryOne Group for International Cooperation on Human Rights Culture is encouraging Israel to buy the house where Hitler was born in Austria and turn it into a Holocaust art gallery, which would ease the mind of the town’s mayor, who fears the property will “fall into the hands of extremists.” [JPost]
