  1. What is the reason we didn’t hear his name till recently? It’s a Himmel Geshray! Pure, unadulterated Pidyon Shvuyim for which even a sefer Torah may be sold to gain the captives release! Why has this story only of late surfaced? He’s nebach been there for OVER A YEAR!

  2. WHY HAD CLINTON FLOWN TO NORTH KOREA TO FREE LUCY WANG BUT CAN’T EVEN LIFT A VOICE TO FREE YANKY OSTREICHER.
