Pfft. These people truly are the scum of the earth. There isn't one day that goes by that I don't have some sort of interaction with them, or hear
stories about others who have had to deal with these phonies. I live not far from Kiryas
Joel, New York
and also their summer settlements in southern Sullivan County. It is absolutely impossible to try to interact with them. My
fiance and I had to pick up some supplies at the local Home Depot and what turned into what we thought was a 20 minute shopping trip turned into a 3
hour fiasco. They have no consideration for other people at all. I saw infants in the front baskets of shopping carts with absolutely no support for
their heads and necks. They will literally shove you out of the way if there is something that they need and you are in their immediate vicinity.
And never, EVER, drive a car near one. They should be considered armed and dangerous when they are behind the wheel.
I have had three occurrences with hasidic jews that left me scratching my head.
One was while my fiance and I were frequenting our local gentlemen's club. It was late, like 2am, and we had just sat at the bar. There is an area
that they call "VIP" (you can figure out what they do in there) in the back of the establishment that people go in and dont come out for a good 5
minutes. Well when I looked into the glass behind the bar, the reflection I saw was three hasidic jews coming out of the corridor exiting the VIP
area, all with huge smiles on their faces. I was astonished to say the least.
The second came a few years back when we were walking to our cars after leaving a bar. There was a group of about 5 of us, and one the the girls was
catching up with us. All of a sudden we heard he screaming profanities at a passing car, not knowing what the hell was going on. The car drove by
with two male hasidic's in the car. I had asked her WTF happened. She had said they had just solicited her for prostitution. Both of them offered
her 50 bucks for a "service". Unfortunately they were out of sight by the time we reached the car.
And the third came when I was working with my dad doing some renovations. I was probably 17 at the time. My father received a call from a buddy of
his that offered him a job re-tileing a bathroom in Kiryas Joel. My dad isn't one to turn down work so off we went. Now if you ever say Kiryas Joel
you would think you had just entered a third world country. Garbage everywhere, kids playing in the street, the houses look ransacked and at the
point of being condemned. We had entered the residence and were immediately struck in the face with a horrible BO. Nauseating, actually. After
holding back vomit, what I saw was unbelievable. The house almost looked like one of Saddam's palaces. Gold fixtures, beautiful chandeliers,
antique furniture, and heavy, and I mean HEAVY, marble countertops. Now, if you read the wiki link on Kiryas Joel you would already know that they
have the highest poverty rate in the nation. How can they afford this?
My guess, and the guess of the local authorities in Monroe, NY, is that they are illegal diamond traffickers.
You all want to know how outsiders live in Israel and dealing with the ultra-orthodox jews, come visit Kiryas Joel.
