Did the Satmar Rebbe Offer Election Bribes?

The not-for-profit Hiddush (Freedom, Religion and Equality) organization last week approached the Israeli Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein and the Chairman of the Central Election Commission, Justice Elyakim Rubinstein, demanding a ruling on whether the offer made by Rabbi Zalman Leib Teitelbaum of Satmar to pay grants to various educational institutions in the country if their students boycotted the elections constitutes election bribery.

The request was made following news that Rabbi Teitelbaum, who lives in the United States, announced that after the elections he would pay a grant of one hundred thousand dollars to each yeshiva whose students abstained from voting.

    The Satmar MOISER GANG and their Neturei Karta offshoot have left the camp of the Children of Israel a long time ago.
    They have NOTHING TO DO with Orthodox Judaism. They are a HERESY, BLACK-CLAD REFORM!

    As someone who contributed for MANY YEARS with his column on the Jewish Press wrote in 1989 http://is.gd/CKPvn6 : BEARDS CARRY NO IMMUNITY!

    It is against people like these that we pray three times a day when we pray against evildoers and moserim.

    The Teitelbaum guy is the direct descendant of the Yoel Teitebaum, שר"י, who ran away on traitor and nazi collaborator Kastner's train, after lying to his followers saying that nothing would have happened, that they were safe, that nazism was a passing phenomenon, but ABOVE ALL they should not go to Israel.
