EXCERPT “60 Minutes:” Soros admits he helped in the confiscation of Jewish properties

On Dec. 20, 1998, in the midst of his murderous speculative rampage against the currencies of Malaysia, Indonesia, South Korea, and other targeted Asian nations, George Soros appeared on CBS-TV’s “60 Minutes,” to explain and defend his behavior. Confronted by interviewer Steve Kroft about his experiences as a youth in Hungary, under the Nazi occupation, Soros freely admitted that he posed as the “adopted godson” of an official of the Nazi-occupation government, and helped in the confiscation of Jewish properties.

“Kroft: And you watched lots of people get shipped off to the death camps.

“Soros: Right. I was 14 years old. And I would say that that’s when my character was made.

“Kroft: In what way?

“Soros: That one should think ahead. One should understand and anticipate events and when one is threatened. It was a tremendous threat of evil. I mean, it was a very personal experience of evil.

“Kroft: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.

“Soros: Yes. Yes.

“Kroft: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews. “Soros: Yes. That’s right. Yes.

“Kroft: I mean that’s–that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?

“Soros: Not–not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don’t–you don’t see the connection. But it was–it created no–no problem at all.

“Kroft: No feeling of guilt?

“Soros: No.

“Kroft: For example that, `I’m Jewish and here I am, watching these people go. I could just as easily be there. I should be there.’ None of that?

“Soros: Well, of course I could be on the other side, or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense that I shouldn’t be there, because that was–well, actually, in a funny way, it’s just like in markets–that if I weren’t there–of course, I wasn’t doing it, but somebody else would–would–would be taking it away anyhow. And it was the–whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. I had no role in taking away the property. So I had no sense of guilt.”

In an earlier television interview on the same subject, Soros was even more blunt about his role as a Nazi collaborator in the Holocaust. On April 15, 1993, Soros appeared on WNET-TV and declared, “When the Germans came in,” his father explained to him that, “This is a lawless occupation. The normal rules don’t apply. You have to forget how you behave in a normal society. This is an abnormal situation. And he [Soros’s father] arranged for all of us to have false papers, everybody had a different arrangement. I was adopted by an official of the ministry of agriculture, whose job was to take over Jewish properties, so I actually went with him and we took possession of these large estates. That was my identity. So it’s a strange, very strange life. I was 14 at the time.”

Sounds like Soros developed a Stockholm syndrome from his adopted nazi god father.

Soros Bets on U.S. Financial Collapse
Canada Free Press | Nov 8, 2010 | Cliff Kincaid
FR Posted Nov 08, 2010 by GiovannaNicoletta

snip “What is most troubling to me about this,” Diamond added, “is that the Fed’s QE2 is in alignment with George Soros’s agenda to destroy global capitalism.” The decline of the dollar “is what George Soros wants and what he has proposed in the past,” he noted. Soros, the billionaire hedge fund operator who finances various leftist and Marxist groups, including Media Matters, has made his fortune by betting on the collapse of national economies and currencies. He was convicted of insider trading in France. (Excerpt) Read more at ...


HERE'S WHY OBAMA WENT TO INDIA: 8/26/10 Soros' Quantum hedge fund last week purchased Dubai Financial Group's 4% stake in the Bombay Stock Exchange....... Soros' investment comes as India works to modernize its capital markets, opening new exchanges, streamlining trading and introducing new products, like currency futures.

India's stock markets are of increasing interest to foreign investors. Brokers own 44 percent of the BSE, with public shareholders controlling the rest.

Thirty percent of public shareholding is in the hands of foreign entities, including Deutsche Boerse, the Singapore Stock Exchange, Canadian financier Tom Caldwell, and US private equity group Argonaut Ventures. Indian law prohibits foreign investors from holding more than 5% in a local exchange. The BSE had 4,990 listed companies as of July and a market capitalization of $1.4 trillion, according to its website.

Soros sold his entire Petrobras stake (Brazilian oil---Soros got $2B from Ohaha)) to help finance the purchase of 4% stake in Bombay Stock Exchange. Buying and selling of non-US listed companies, including ADRs on US stock exchanges, is not required to be registered on the SEC forms.

Soros’s Oil Spill Payoff
Frontpage Mag | June 22, 2010 | Tait Trussell
FR Posted June 22, 2010 by opentalk

Within 48 hours after President Obama issued the six-month moratorium on deep-water drilling, the George Soros-backed Brazilian oil company, Petrobras, contacted a large New Orleans company, Laborde Marine, which services the deep-water drilling market. The company was seeking to lease all its vessels. “If the moratorium on deep-water drilling is not lifted, 33 semi-submersible rigs and/or drill ships affected will simply go to other countries where they will be well received, such as Brazil,” Cliffe F. Laborde and J. Peter Laborde, Jr. wrote in a June 4 letter to their Louisiana Senators.

Could this be merely a happy coincidence for George Soros, the major financial backer of Obama’s presidential campaign who also has $811 million invested in the Brazilian oil company, Petrobras? Wasn’t it enough of a payback to Soros when the Obama Administration loaned up to $10 billion to Petrobras?

Soros, with his far left-wing organization, MoveOn, is called the Godfather of world socialism. But most relevant currently is that he has been an enthusiastic proponent of global warming and environmental liberalism. He has urged adoption of a global carbon tax. Could it be more than coincidence that his position is strikingly similar to what Obama called for in his June 14 Oval Office speech on the Gulf oil spill and future energy actions?

I wonder if the Mossad is interested in Mr. Soros?

Sounds like he knows a lot about “false papers”-like birth certificates etc. and pretending to be someone you’re not so you can take over and profit by it. After all, if “you don’t do it, someone else will”...

what an evil vile being he is and always has been....
