Banned due to seforim case

I would venture to say that due to using the us court system to win a judgement.

See: https://collive.com/judge-allows-chabad-to-pursue-russian-assets-until-books-are-freed/

Now th3 US is taking pages from this episode

See: https://www.timesofisrael.com/in-trying-to-seize-russian-assets-the-us-is-taking-a-page-from-chabad/

With all this, one can only imagine that Russia has an ax to grind here. Although Russia is terribly wrong here, this is all part of their political posturing and lashing out at various individuals and organizations.

Russia needs to save face and create “news” so this is a new talking point in their fabricated and carefully crafted news coverage of this war.

Moshiach now!

Take pride

Rabbis Krinsky Cunin and ShemTov are Shluchim of the Rebbe. Such as the Rebbe has never been scathed by the ostrosities of any negative powers so we shouldn’t be alarmed or frustrated by this.

Nu hut er gezukt. Hashem – kudsha brech hu zukt anderesh. Ver nisht nispoel,,,

Chevreh. There is a boss here. His game is more powerful then anything else. The Rebbe is in absolute charge.

So I guess the implication is that you and I are Russian assets too?

They sanctioned anyone and everyone who matters at all and who ever confronted Russia about anything at all. The list is unsparing. Yet the former President, under whose watch Putin committed the worst crimes, is still a guest of honor.

I’m not sanctioned because as far as Russia is concerned, I don’t matter. If you do, in fact, matter, and you are not, in fact, on the list, then yes—you likely are an asset. Like Donald J. Trump.

Or…

More simply and more sensibly: Putin knows that there’s no downside in putting Biden and co. on the list, because they’ll just fulminate and nothing substantive will come of it. Whereas Trump can be an honest broker, as he was with the Abraham Accords; or he can issue threats that actually mean something, as when he threatened to nuke Moscow if they tried anything in Ukraine (and, whaddayaknow, they didn’t throughout his time in office). But I guess you’re welcome to keep to your fantasies, even as a special prosecutor is starting to demonstrate that they were an invention of… Read more »
