The following was posted in the comment section of Failed Messiah's posting on Chabad of Southern Nevada. I thought it was important and wanted it to be easier to be found.

Posted by: Dovid| June 22, 2007 at 01:48 AM

In this case legal fees were awarded because the victims lawyer did not do any depositions and or discovery and the victim was not allowed discovery ever it was closed by Judges who had recived donations.

The victim (of cantor Michael Segelstein) then became a victim in what is called Civil Conspiarcy, falling as I understand under RICO laws. Starting with a sex crime, civil conspicarys and ending in bankruptcy.

The sex offender by records at district records in this case filed bankruptcy a few days before trial and advoiding a fair trial for the victim and that just happened to be after he had just been released by the State of Nevada Correction Probation Department and he completed that as State records show on line.

As I read by motions at the court house:

Victim was taken and driven by an employees car from one law firm to another law firm who was to take the case for the victim. Because that law firm leading manager shareholder was the President of the shul were the sexual assult happened. Conflict of Interest.

The next week that same law firm took the case for Chabad against the victim Conflict of Interest. Maybe Planned.

Conflict of Interest and Torts to a vcitim of a sex crime and insult to injury as I have been told. What a crime of corruption I belive.

The legal fees were paid for by SAFECO/AMERICAN a Sexual Molostation Insurance Policy in which the Catholics use as well for a free pass. Las Vegas Chabad must have on record by District Court Motions the same insurance company and they just happen to have this on hand for this case and this is a free pass to do what you want and cost Chabad nothing.

What a way to play with human lives and victims lives and cost you nothing.

In this case everyone in Las Vegas knows there were donation sheets in the Judge name that had been donated from the lawyers for Chabad and inside of the camp.

Conflict of Interest and not disclosed to the victim that Conflict of Interest by donation to the Judges be exposed to her. They were keept secert. Not giving victim the right to refuse the Judge. Who would want a Judge like that over your case.

The claims in the legal fees were not for frivolous. As I understand and think in my own mind a way to get a victim to back down from there maybe Federal case which should be filed at once in federal Court.

Clergy abuse statue is extended in Federal Courts.

Victim I guess was under the due care of Chabad it seems. Her trust I take it in them was breached by fiducary duty and or I take it negigenced by Chabad is in the thoughts of any victim if this happened to your family? Word is she trusted Chabad many have made that mistake. Poor girl what a shock.

Rape is when something that is inserted as I understand right?

Were you there?

Were you invovled?

Did you see these crime?

Did you help protect anything in this case?

What is with this "Chabaddick" in a religious parking lot. What was he thinking?

Word has in in court on line records that "plea bargins" were in this case.

What a crime I belive this to be out right Exploting and Extortion of a victim in my belifs.

Well if semon is on the victim? I'M not a FBI AGENT who is invovled in criminal justice. To me just common thoughts. But it sounds like a free pass to rape if you are spilling your seeds. As well that is against American law and Halakha to a married woman not your wife!

Lets face it if semon was on the victim. One thing for sure the semon did not come from Lilith traveling around and put on a Jewess in a Temple parking lot. Right?

The question is do you know what happened and how is was done?

Everyone needs to be aware that SAFECO INSURANCE/AMERICAN in Seattle needs to be mentioned as they are behind a lot of this. They have been doing this since 1967 to the Catholics and survivors of other religions.

SAFECO INSURANCE/AMERICAN in Seattle created the insurance lawyer fee as an attempt to bully the survivors into signing agreements to remain silent.

Do you think it's OK to rape children and or adults and then have the victims pay the offenders or those who cover up the crimes attorney fees?

You let the offender off the hook and they go out and do it all over again creating more victims and most likely more attorney fees. In the end who makes out like a bandit? SAFECO INSURANCE/AMERICAN.

SAFECO INSURANCE/AMERICAN in Seattle encourages sex crimes, they make a living doing it.

The Growth of Chabbad
Religion & Ethics Newsletter/March 22, 2002

BOB ABERNETHY, anchor: Now a special report on a high-profile and sometimes controversial movement within Hasidic Judaism. Hasidism began in the 1700s in Eastern Europe. It was characterized by strict observance of ritual law,
joyous worship, and deep mysticism. Hasidism was almost wiped out during the Holocaust, but was revived by survivors who came to the U.S. Of the several
Hasidic groups, the Chabad-Lubavitch movement is by far the most visible.

Sunday, March 24, marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of their late chief rabbi, Menachem Mendel Schneerson. Eight years after his death, he continues to inspire Lubavitchers. Some even think he is the Messiah. Kim Lawton has the story.

KIM LAWTON: Rabbi Shea Harlig is on a mission -- to get Jews to embrace a more traditional practice of their faith. As an emissary of the
Chabad-Lubavitch movement, he works nearly nonstop. He leads prayer services and Torah studies; he and his wife Dina sponsor a Jewish school for children; and they promote keeping a kosher diet. The rabbi is waging his campaign in what may seem an unlikely mission field -- Las Vegas, Nevada.

Rabbi SHEA HARLIG: Once you get away from the Strip, it is like every other city -- except you have slot machines in every grocery store.

LAWTON: The Harligs are part of a vast and sometimes controversial effort aimed at Jews in every corner of the globe. It was the vision of the late Chief Lubavitcher Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who led the Lubavitch
movement for more than 40 years. Lubavitchers simply call him "the Rebbe."

Rabbi YEHUDA KRINSKY: The Rebbe established what you might call an outreach program decades ago. The intention: to reach out to Jewish people wherever they are, whoever they are, regardless of background. To teach them about
their faith.

LAWTON: Schneerson emphasized traditional Hasidic teachings: strict religious observance and deep mysticism. He also preached that the coming of the Messiah, the Moshiach, was near.

Rabbi HARLIG: The Rebbe has spoke[n] that we should usher in this age when godliness will be revealed to all, and the struggle between good and evil will cease. There will be true peace in the world. So we look at our goal of
bringing Jews closer so that they should fulfill the mission as one of the ways we could hasten, speed up, the coming of the Messiah.

LAWTON: Like other Hasidic groups, Lubavitchers fled persecution and
political upheaval in Europe, bringing their 18th-century way of life to 20th-century America. They established a flourishing community in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, which has become the movement's international headquarters. While other Hasidic groups maintained a strict focus inward, the Rebbe instructed his followers to spread the Chabad-Lubavitch vision

Rabbi KRINSKY: He often said that he could not rest until every Jewish child, every Jewish person was afforded a proper Jewish education to know how to live as a Jew and as a human being.

LAWTON: Married men and women called "shluchim," emissaries, were dispatched around the world to establish Chabad centers -- even in places where there were only a few Jews. They call themselves "the Rebbe's Army" and they've enlisted for life. There are more than 3,800 emissary couples in 45 U.S.
states and 62 foreign countries. Roll calls at Lubavitch meetings such as this recent women's conference show their massive reach.

There's a special emphasis on Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, where the Lubavitch movement has its roots.

LEAH MINDLE LIPSZYC (Emissary to Crimea): Most of the people in the country, through 75 years of communism, were totally, totally deprived of any knowledge of Judaism.

LAWTON: But emissaries are also in other challenging places -- they've led special services in Nepal, and they've lit a Hanukkah menorah in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas -- Sin City -- may be among the last places people would expect to find a thriving Chabad center. This area has one of the fastest-growing Jewish populations in the United States. There are about 70,000 Jews here.

Most are secular.

Such a mission field was just what Shea and Dina Harlig were looking for when they arrived more than a decade ago, shortly after their marriage.

There was no kosher food. No ritual bath. Little Jewish education. So the Harligs set to work.

Today, they've opened a new $1.5 million Chabad center, with regular prayer services in the "shul," or synagogue, and a "mikveh," a bath, for women's monthly purification rituals.

Rabbi Harlig is now the local kosher food supervisor. Several grocery stores sponsor entire kosher food sections. And there are several kosher restaurants, including a Chinese restaurant, Shalom Hunan.

They established the Torah Tots Preschool and the Desert Torah Academy with grades K through fourth. The instruction is both secular and religious. Most
of the parents are non-Chabad Jews.

DINA HARLIG: We have the parents really involved as much as we can, and we explain a lot of what we do; whatever program we do, we always explain and have them understand what's going on.

Rabbi HARLIG: One of the signs of the coming of the Moshiach, it says that the children are going to bring the parents closer, back to Judaism, to observance.

LAWTON: Harlig teaches Jews that observance and good deeds are a way to enhance spirituality and connect with God.

Lynn and Arne Rosencrantz are members of a Conservative congregation who have participated in Rabbi Harlig's classes and donated to Chabad projects.

LYNN ROSENCRANTZ: They make me hungry to learn more. They encourage and motivate me to learn more about Judaism -- to be a better Jew, to aspire to be the best Jew that I can.

LAWTON: But Lubavitchers also generate controversy, especially because of their messianic beliefs. Schneerson died in 1994; he had not designated a successor.

Lubavitchers believe he is still guiding them. Every year, people
flock to his gravesite in Queens, where they seek his intervention for miracles.

Chabad leaders say every "shaliach," or emissary, continues to be inspired by the Rebbe.

Rabbi KRINSKY: I would say there is not a shaliach in the world who -- and all the members of his or her family, that don't feel the Rebbe constantly looking over their shoulder. His blessing is almost palpable, the success is
so phenomenal.

LAWTON: At the time of Schneerson's death, some Lubavitchers believed the Rebbe himself was Moshiach -- the Messiah. That belief has persisted, and apparently grown -- something that offends many Orthodox Jews.

Rabbi DAVID BERGER: The belief that the messianic mission of the true
Messiah would be interrupted by his death and burial in an unredeemed world is a position which Jews rejected, and rejected vigorously, vehemently, as part of the defining characteristic of the Jewish religion. I believe that the belief itself is a betrayal of Judaism.

LAWTON: Rabbi Berger, a professor of Jewish history, says while Jews do believe in the coming of the Messiah, the Chabad-Lubavitch interpretation is wrong. This is particularly troubling, he says, because of Chabad's growing global influence. In his writings, Berger criticizes other Jews for not speaking out.

Rabbi BERGER: There is a deep dependence on Chabad by non-Chabad Orthodox Jews. Only in a generation now, if this continues, will people come to realize for the sake of all these good things, they have transformed and undermined their religion.

LAWTON: Chabad leaders are very reluctant to publicly discuss the extent to which Lubavitchers believe Schneerson was the Messiah.

Rabbi KRINSKY: We live in a free country. People could believe in whatever they want. But it is certainly not an obligation upon anyone to campaign or point fingers at anybody saying that this is Moshiach, this is potential
Moshiach. I think it's dangerous, actually. People don't understand what the whole concept of Moshiach is really about. It's a delicate subject, and they could get lost in the quagmire.

Rabbi HARLIG: It's possible. Who is it going to be for sure, I don't know. The most important thing, let's do our work. Let's bring as many Jews back to our sacred tradition and the Messiah will show up, and whoever it is going to be, it's going to be, as long as he finally comes.

LAWTON: And Rabbi Harlig says he's doing what he can to see Las Vegas get ready for the Messiah's arrival.

Rabbi HARLIG: My hope is that the Moshiach will be here and the Strip will turn into big yeshivas, rabbinical schools. I envision all these big hotels with thousands of rooms; it could be rabbinical students studying here. That's my vision.

LAWTON: I'm Kim Lawton in Las Vegas.

Rabbi Krinsky has been involved in case of Cantor Michael Segelstien and was served with legal papers and he had complete knowledge of the sex conviction, sexual harassments. Rabbi Krinsky is the same rabbi involved with the missing 18 year old girl from Florida.

Rabbi Krinsky has allowed for the preparer to remain in position as the kar-bora and kosher business profit, "Bankruptcy" in the Las Vegas Chabad.

Rabbi Krinsky, has had lawyers in Las Vegas to protect the assets of Chabad headquarters in Crown Heights, NY He also made oaths that Chabad in Las Vegas and Chabad of the State of Nevada is not connected in business with Chabad in New York and or vice/verse.

Rabbi Krinsky did not care that the woman was a victim of a sex crime. His goal was to protect the Chabad business partner. He is a religious Leader who profits in Kosher Catering at Chabad of Southern Nevada.

You would think the Chabad leadership would be more concerned about the rights of a rape victm, but they aren't.

Rabbi Shea Harlig honors the convicted sex offender each week when he sits next to him in shul and allows the Segelstein to read from the Torah just about every shabbos. If I remember correctly this violates halacha.

How can you trust someone who violates halacha this way to sell, touch, kosher meats, or any kosher product?
