Statement From Agudath Israel Regarding Sholom Rubashkin

The following statement was made by Agudath Israel following the Supreme Court’s rejection of the Sholom Rubashkin case. “Agudath Israel of America is deeply saddened by the Supreme Court’s refusal to review the case of Sholom Rubashkin. Seriousquestions have been raised as to the fundamental fairness of his trial and sentence, and he surely deserved a full hearing from our nation’s highest court.

It is noteworthy that a broad and distinguished array of legal scholars and experts have declared the case to be a miscarriage of justice. As such, the justices have sadly squandered an opportunity to right a terrible wrong.”

  1. Ain lonu Lihishoan Ele Al Avinu Shebashumyim .

    Lets daven and see how HSY”S will take him out we will all be amazed.

  2. In the way of hishtadlus, the only possible hope at this point is to elect Mitt Romney as president and hopefully his newly appointed attorney general will be a little more of a mentch and an ‘oiheiv yisroel’ then the current ‘soinei’ that he will agree to look into this case. I’m not sure what else can be done. With so many jews working in the Obama administration one has to wonder why no one has a little bit of ahavas yisroel that they could grab this president by the hand and say Mr President, you got to look at this case it really needs to be looked at – but sadly everyone out in his administration are looking out for themselves – how sad.

  3. b-boy:

    he is wrongly convicted because his trial was presided over by a biased judge. that makes his conviction “wrong”.
    it also makes his sentence “wrong”.

  4. @#4, Rabbi G, that is not the way a Jew thinks! H-shem doesn’t want us to stop, he wants us to keep trying! He wants us to keep davening, and pushing, and pleading, and begging! He wants to see all Jews united in this effort, and hopefully, with enough Tefillos, we can turn around this gezeira!

    A Jew never gives up! Afilu cherev chada munachas al tzavaro shel adam, al yina atzmo min harachamim!
