The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity had all its assets, $15.2 million, invested with Madoff
The Virginian ^ | 5/23/2010 | Moneyrunner

The Washington Post headline reads: Theater J pulls Madoff play after objections from activist Elie Wiesel. What caught my eye was this: The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity had all its assets, $15.2 million, invested with Madoff and lost them when the Ponzi scheme unraveled. In addition, Wiesel personally lost several million dollars to Madoff. Somehow I never pictured Elie Wiesel a multi-millionaire. Neither did I picture him at the center of a foundation worth tens of millions of dollars. Or someone foolish enough to put all of his eggs in one basket. That part of being a famous Nazi hunter was never discussed in the things I had read about him.

Try to imagine the moral bankruptcy of a Jew cheating an organization dedicated to bringing to justice former Nazis who took part in the Holocaust.

Wiesel is a very successful author and a popular speaker, although he rarely speaks. re: putting money with Madoff, many esteemed Jewish organizations had money “run” by him.

You know there has got to be a logical explanation for the fact that based upon prison attendance Bernie is almost the only heavy hitting financial guy who cheated over the past decade.

It is astonishing. He took advantage of many Jewish philanthropies. It really is a sin to rob a charity.

Why was comment #6 removed?
It was very, very mild compared to anything that appears many times a day here in reference to Muslims, Russians, Germans, even African Americans.
Sadly disapointing and very counterproductive to one of the more or less free and certainly robust website debating areas remaining in this once good ol’ USA.
