HOW THE WEB FORGED ANOTHER KOSHER CONSPIRACY
A story on the website tbrnews.org, claiming that $400bn went from Lehman Bros to Israel, was placed online alongside an edited version of a genuine news piece by Linda Sandler of Bloomberg, presumably to add authenticity
$400B SENT TO ISRAEL AHEADOFLEHMANBK
The Voice of the White House, Washington DC, October 2 2008 “There is a very serious aspect to the current economic collapse that no one wants to discuss, neither the economic pundits, the media or the scared politicians. This concerns an aspect of the subprime scams… Very large amounts of money from banks and financial institutions and the owners and controllers thereof were, and are being, sent outside this country to a secure area. I am speaking specifically of American business sending, electronically, huge amounts of money to banks in Israel.
“The three banks that are getting most of the stolen money are: Hapoalim group, Bank Leumi group, Discount Bank group. It is not necessary to mention that the senders are all Jewish and it should be noted that Israeli banking concerns practice strict banking security (see their Protection of Privacy Law, 1981). Under the PPL, ‘an infringement of privacy is, inter alia, a violation of an obligation to maintain secrecy regarding a person’s private affairs, established by explicit or implicit agreement’.
“The bank’s obligation of secrecy extends not only to the details of the client’s account but also to all transactions related to the account. In other words, if the US authorities want to know about this, they can bend over while the Israeli bankers drive them home.
“And if the stickyfingered ones decide to make a quick flight to Israel ahead of FBI investigators, like their new accounts, they are safe. Note here that Israel does not extradite its citizens. But it does allow prosecutions in its own courts for crimes committed abroad… US law-enforcement personnel… fear that Israeli-oriented economic criminals will use the Jewish state as a refuge.” [Text reproduced verbatim]
LEHMANBROTHERS SHIPPED OFF $400B JUST BEFOREBANKRUPTCY NICE !
By Linda Sandler, September 27, 2008 “Bloomberg — Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc’s brokerage unit, in the months before its parent filed for bankruptcy protection, lost more than $400b in assets, according to the trustee overseeing customer accounts. Lehman’s holding company filed for bankruptcy Sept 15 claiming $639 billion in assets, using four-monthold data. The wholly owned brokerage unit shrank to less than $100 billion in assets from $500 billion ‘a few months ago’, according to a Sept 19 court statement…
“The loss in value was caused by “changes in the market”, according to Giddens, a partner at law firm Hughes Hubbard & Reed… The runoff may indicate Lehman’s customers, including many hedge funds, cancelled… trades as they began to doubt the firm’s ability to navigate the credit crunch…”
