Satmar Factions Inching Towards Historic Property Deal

Two weeks ago I broke the story (http://www.jacobkornbluh.com/2013/03/personal-note-why-i-will-not-serve-as.html?m=1) about negotiations going on between the two Satmar factions, in working out some deal to ease the tension, internally and politically, and move towards an end to the almost decade and a half rift.

It seems there was more to it, especially after the amount of pressure that was mounted on the blog to remove a post that was, in their words, harmful to the peace talks between the Zalmenites as the Ahronim.

Hikind Has A Change Of Heart on Obama Post Israel Visit

President Obama managed to charm the Israeli public in his visit to Israel, and reset his relationship with prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. But most important he managed to find his way to the heart of Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind. Just months ago, Hikind went on national TV to decry the Jewish community's support of President Obama, telling Cavuto "the people of Israel are very concerned about Barack Obama getting reelected." In January of 2012, Hikind was firm about his opposition to Obama's reelection. “If I could just say, there’s no doubt in my mind that a lot of Israeli leaders are praying that Obama doesn’t get reelected,” he firmly stated at a press conference with Congressman Bob Turner.

Personal Note: Why I Will Not Serve As A Barrier To Satmar Unity Deal


Per requests by many of the Satmar community in Williamsburg, especially by prominent leaders of the Ahroiny sect., I have decided to take this unprecedented step of removing a blog post I wrote this week.

As you might well be aware, the Satmar community in Williamsburg is split into two dominated large and growing factions. The story I wrote about councilman Steve Levin dancing at the wedding of a known activist has caused great outrage in Williamsburg, which of course was not my intention.

Priebus, Oy Vey! RNC Wants To Win Elections With RJC"s Failed Efforts and Tactics

If only Romney would of succeeded in winning the presidency, power brokers and vote collectors all across the nation would of attributed victory to their outreach and efforts. But Mitt Romney lost by huge margins on key battle ground state, and some' claim to fame is just pathetic and laughable.

The best example is: The RJC (Republican Jewish Coalition). According to the Republican Party, the Republican Jewish Coalition is non other than a role model for the kind of outreach that the party must undertake in order to expand its voter base and increase its chances of winning future presidential elections.
