Tendler & the Jewish Press - Part 11

I always get attacked for cursing out the Jewish Press. Well guess what? I will continue to do it. They are a bunch of lying idiotic dopes who think that they will continue to get away with reporting FALSE facts. A while back the Jewish Press wrote an article sticking up for Mordy Tendler (as usual) and wrote "Now, however, the conclusions of the Jerusalem Bet Din have also been reached by Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky of Israel and the Agudath Harabbanim of the United States and Canada. The Jewish Press has learned that Rabbi Kanievsky was presented with a halachic inquiry or shailah which outlined the circumstances of the RCA’s expulsion of Rabbi Tendler and the lashon hara issue – and he responded in writing that resort to a bet din to deal with the issues mentioned was required by halacha in order to determine the truth. In addition, Rabbi Zvi Hirsh Ginzberg, the administrator of the Agudath Harabbanim, in a written declaration on behalf of its religious court, came to the same conclusion, citing among other things, the statement of Rabbi Kanievsky." After reading it, I called my sources who are deeply embedded in R' Chaim Kanievsky's "Chatzar" and the confirmed my suspicions that he was never ever consulted regarding this matter. I bit my tongue and just sat back and waited for the ball to fall. Well folks it fell today. Today the RCA on it's website wrote "The Rabbinical Council of America has received personal verbal assurance from Rav Chaim Kanievsky of Bnei Brak, together with a written letter of confirmation in his name and with his full approval, that he was never asked nor has he ever rendered an opinion about the dispute between Rabbi Mordecai Tendler and the RCA. Thus any attempt by Rabbi Tendler or those claiming to speak for him to use the respected name of Rav Kanievsky in the context of his dispute with the RCA is both astonishing and blatantly false. The same is true of any statements made, or currently being asserted, by any Beis Din, newspaper reports or editorials that purport to be based on such a claim. A copy of the original written statement in Rav Kanievsky’s name is here attached." I will repeat what I have always said: The Jewish Press are a bunch of LIERS! They Belittle Gedolei Yisroel on a weekly basis. They are "Mashiv Torah Lo K'halacha". They poke fun at the Frum / Yeshivish oilam! They write and promote KEFIRA! They have lost ALL credibility.
