And hopefully his grandchildren are Shluchim, etc., but since the end of the Cold War we’ve known conclusively that the Rosenbergs–both of them–were guilty as sin. Guilty of aiding an evil country, as Yosef Mendelevitch might remind you, in acquiring nuclear weapons. This guy had no business defending them at a supposedly Chabad conference, and putting scare quotes around “spies” or mentioning an “unjust conviction” is just egregious.

According to their website his organization “The RFC has helped the families of Mumia Abu-Jamal, Russell Shoatz, Herman Bell, Tito Kayak, Leonard Peltier, Lynne Stewart and hundreds of other targeted activists and political prisoners, and youth working for immigrants’ rights, against police brutality and the U.S. military machine, and other struggles.”

Mmm…

Have we forgotten the persecution of our brethren at the hand of the Yevsektsiya, Jewish commies who almost destroyed Judaism in the former Soviet Union?

Ethyl’s brother lied about her role and admitted he lied in order to save his family. Yes Julius was a spy according to research BUT they shouldn’t have been executed. Yes I think being Jewish helped to put the nail in the coffin. Why execute Ethyl?
