IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn charged over New York sex crime

submit to reddit

Dominique Strauss-Kahn was pulled off an Air France flight by the NYPD.

The head of the IMF has been charged with a criminal sexual act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment, following allegations made by a hotel maid in New York.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn was taken into custody at JFK airport after being pulled from the first-class cabin of a flight to Paris just minutes before take-off.

The 62-year-old married father of four is due to appear before a judge later this evening.

The lawyer representing Mr Strauss-Kahn, Benjamin Brafman, has indicated he “will plead not guilty” to the charges.

The incident is alleged to have happened in Mr Strauss-Kahn’s luxury suite at the Sofitel hotel, not far from Manhattan’s Times Square.

A 32-year-old maid told authorities she was attacked when she went into clean the room.

In a statement Mr Strauss-Kahn’s wife, Anne Sinclair, said she “does not believe for a second the accusations against her husband”.

“I do not doubt his innocence will be established. I appeal for restraint and decency,” she added.

Talks that had been due to take place today between Mr Strauss-Kahn and German Chancellor Angela Merkel were cancelled in the wake of the arrest, after the IMF said they would not be sending a replacement to Berlin.

The pair had been due to talk about the euro zone debt crisis.

Mr Strauss-Kahn was also due to attend a meeting of European finance ministers in Brussels on Monday.

The French head of the International Monetary Fund took up his role in November 2007.

The 187-nation lending agency is based in Washington and provides help in the form of emergency loans for countries facing severe financial problems.

He won praise for his leadership at the IMF during the financial crisis of 2008 and the severe global recession that followed.

More recently, he has directed the IMF’s participation in bailout efforts to keep a European debt crisis which began in Greece from destabilising the global economy.

Before taking the top job at the IMF, Mr Strauss-Kahn had been a member of the French National Assembly and had also served as France’s Minister of Economy, Finance and Industry from June 1997 to November 1999.

He had been viewed as a leading contender to challenge the re-election of French president Nicolas Sarkozy for the Socialist Party. With Strauss-Kahn out of the way, Marine Le Pen’s chances of getting elected are much higher.

    Backfire from strange direction? Members of his tribe call them kushim or shwarzas. His people, of course, are divine creatures on this planet. And all the others are Goyim, cattle!

    • This is what the Ashkenazi Jewish religion teaches about black people. You can find proof at http://www.ottmall.com/mj_ht_arch/v15/mj_v15i20.html#CDX:

      In Mail-Jewish, Vol. 15, No. 15, Marc Shapiro’s post on Judaism and Racism included the following:

      “In 1992 a book was published by a leading member of the Satmar community entitled Artzot Ha-Hayyim. On p. 52 he explains, and quotes other rabbis, that the reason Abraham Lincoln was killed was because he freed the blacks. this is also the reason why Kennedy was killed, i.e. because he was good to the blacks. He continues by saying that this will be the fate of any who adopt a progressive attitude towards blacks, because they are meant to be enslaved. His source for this is Ham’s curse.

      The sources are several:

      (1) The Legends of the Jews – Ginzburg, Vol. 1, p. 169: “The descendants of Ham through Canaan therefore have red eyes, because Ham looked upon the nakedness of his father; they have misshapen lips, because Ham spoke with his lips to his brothers about the unseemly condition of his father; they have twisted curly hair, because Ham turned and twisted his head round to see the nakedness of his father; and they go about naked, because Ham did not cover the nakedness of his father. Thus he was requited, for it is the way of G-d to mete out punishment measure for measure.”

      (2)Midrash Rabbah (Soncino) Vol. 1, p. 293:
      “AND HE SAID: CURSED BE CANAAN (Breishit 9:25): (Commentary omitted)…R. Huna also said in R. Joseph’s name: You [i.e. Noah is speaking to Ham) have prevented me from doing something in the dark [i.e. cohabiting with his wife], therefore your seed will be ugly and dark-skinned. R. Chiyya said:
      Ham and the dog copulated in the Ark, therefore Ham came forth black-skinned while the dog publicly exposed its copulation.”

      (3)Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin (Soncino), p. 745, 108b: “Our Rabbis taught: Three copulated in the ark, and they were all punished – the dog, the raven and Ham. The dog was doomed to be tied, the
      raven expectorates [his seed into his mate’s mouth], and Ham was smitten in his skin.” (This is footnoted and the footnote reads: “I.e., from him
      was descended Cush (the negro), who is black-skinned.”

      (4)THE TORAH ANTHOLOGY (translation of Me’am Lo’ez), Vol. 1, p. 392-3: “Ham received five punishments: 1. Because he looked at his naked father, his eyes became red, always appearing bloodshot. 2. Because he mocking told his brothers about his father’s condition, his lips were made thick and gross, like those of a Negro. 3. Because he turned his head to see his father, the hair of his head and beard became kinky. 4. Because he did not cover his father, it was decreed that he always go naked. We thus see that slaves in Egypt go naked. They even did so in Egypt. This was not because of poverty, since it is impossible to imagine that none of them would have enough money to buy clothing. The reason is that they live in a hot, damp climate, and it is very uncomfortable to
      wear clothing. The reason for this is their geographical location, since the Hamatic tribes live in tropical climes. It was this curse that caused them to live there. They must therefore go naked and become blacked by the sun. The fifth curse will be discussed later.”

      I was not able to find the discussion of the fifth curse.

      The curse of Ham was something I learned of as a child and could not understand its origin from the words in Genesis. The curse of Ham was widely used by slave owners in the South to justify the enslavement of blacks. In my studies of slavery I was unable to find the basis. Only when I began studying Torah and various commentaries did I find the source. Somehow the rabbinic commentaries made their way into Christian culture and became an underpinning for anti-black racism.

      Marc Shapiro writes: How to defeat racism? Torah is obviously not the answer since so many Jews who spend their whole lives immersed in Torah are racists.

      In Israel, there is a big problem with Ashkenazi racism against Ethiopian Jews. The Ashkenazi religion is very hateful toward goyim, but especially towards schwartzas. That is why Strauss-Kahn did what he did to that African maid. He was unpleasantly surprised to find out that was a a chaste, Muslim woman who respect Allah and did not give a damn about his money. I hope the bastard goes to jail — and I hope that Ha Shem sits and laughs at him when he goes.

    • Dear Ivan:

      The following are excepts from the Jewish website Daat Emet (http://www.come-and-hear.com/supplement/so-daat-emet/en_gentiles4.html#f3):

      It is written in the Torah (Leviticus 19:17): “You shall not hate your brother in your heart. You shall certainly rebuke your neighbor, and not suffer sin on his account” — so it is clearly stated in the Torah that this prohibition specifically regards Jews. And so Maimonides wrote in The Laws of Mental States, chapter 6, halacha 6 (in the printed edition, halacha 5): “Anyone who hates a Jew in his heart transgresses a negative commandment, as it says: ‘You shall not hate your brother in your heart’.” Thus he also wrote in Sefer HaMitzvot, negative commandment 302, and likewise it appears in Sefer HaChinuch, commandment 245 (in other editions 238).

      N. You Shall not Avenge or Bear a Grudge — And You Shall Love Your Neighbor as Yourself

      It is written in the Torah (Leviticus 19:18): “You shall not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord” — here also the verse yells out “the children of your people.” In Torat Cohanim on the portion of Kedoshim, chapter 4, halacha 12: “You shall not avenge nor bear a grudge against the children of your people — but you can avenge and bear a grudge against others” (that is, against Gentiles — explanation of the Ra’avad). In the words of Maimonides in The Laws of Mental States, chapter 7, halacha 10 (in the printed edition, halacha 7): “One who avenges against his fellow transgresses a negative commandment, as it says: ‘You shall not avenge’.” And there in halacha 11 (in the printed edition, the continuation of halacha 7): “What is considered vengeance? If one’s fellow said to him ‘lend me your ax’ and he answered ‘I will not lend it to you.’ The next day he needed to borrow an ax from his friend. He said to him ‘lend me your ax’ and the other answered, ‘I will not lend it to you, as you did not lend it to me when I requested.’ This is vengeance.” And there, halacha 12 (in the printed edition, halacha 8): “Also, anyone who bears a grudge against a Jew transgresses a negative commandment, as it says: ‘You shall not bear a grudge against the children of your people.’ How is this? Reuven said to Shimon ‘rent me this house’ or ‘lend me this ox’ and Shimon refused. Later, Shimon needed to borrow or to rent and Reuven said: ‘See? I will lend it to you, for I am not like you and I will not pay you back for your actions.’ One who does so transgresses the commandment ‘You shall not bear a grudge’…”

      With regards to the second half of the verse, Maimonides wrote in Sefer HaMitzvot positive commandment 206 (according to Rav Kapach’s edition): “We were commanded to love one another…and my compassion and love to my brother in faith and religion shall be as my love and compassion to myself…” In chapter 6 of The Laws of Mental States, halacha 4 (in the printed edition, halacha 3): “It is a commandment for every person to love each and every Jew as he loves himself, as it says: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself’.”

    Well I am hung up on 2 sides of the story. One side says that the maid is money hungry and out to get some big bucks from one of the most powerful men in the world. Well, who use to be the most powerful man in the world. The other side of the story is that Dominique Strauss-Kahn thinks he can do anything given his position and did take advantage of the maid. The thing that tells me that Dominique Strauss-Kahn might have been the guilty one is the fact that he resigned from his position as IMF chief. Perhaps he knows that he is going down and left his seat with IMF.

    • Please consider the following:

      1) The media in this country is controlled by Jews.

      2) There is no history of the maid having ever done this before.

      3) The woman is a practicing muslim.

      4) The woman is defenseless.
