I was just looking at the language of the kol koreh to ban VosIzNeias (VIN). It was absurd in its allegations about VIN. But it does fit the campaign to boycott Ami Magazine because of its defense of convicted Satmar child molester, Rabbi Nechemya Weberman. Below is my rewrite of the VIN ban with adaptations to fit a print publication whose owner is open about his identity (though probably concealing who is paying him under the table for PR).
From the Great Rabbis and Roshei Yeshivas, Shlita
about the grave dangers of the magazine, “Ami”
Satan has found a way, that a magazine exists known as “Ami”, as if it were founded only to spread news of the Jewish world; yet it contains a hidden ambush — as with the news, it includes stories and events glorifying the corrupt, abominable and lowly; Praising those who raise their hands in violence against other Jews with fists and with flames, full of contamination, filth, foul language; slander, and gossip, and degrading of brave anusim; it also prints libels and slander regarding individuals and organizations. Similarly the things written there are filled with adultery and slander, and increase fights in Israel, kashering everyone’s shmutz. It also writes against court officers and politicians under whose favor we live, who protect our children, to ruin their reputation. The disgrace of G-d’s name is immense and mighty.
We are pained that the owner of this magazine takes money from sinners and those who lead others to sin. We are pained that we don’t know how to chastise this individual as our holy Torah deems appropriate for those who cause the public to fall to sin; it is obvious that the obligation rests on anyone who knows how to influence the owner, Yitzchok Frankfurter, to come to a rabbinic court and make this known, just as the Torah states, “should he not testify, he shall bear his terrible sin.”
We have thus come to make clear our opinion, that of the holy Torah as we see it:
IT IS A SERIOUS PROHIBITION TO GIVE ANY ADVERTISEMENT OR OTHERWISE WORK WITH THESE PEOPLE, AS THIS ENABLES THE WICKED AND ASSISTS EVILDOERS, THUS REINFORCING THEIR FILTHY ACTIONS; SO TOO, DO NOT BUY THE MAGAZINE OR BUY FROM ANY ADVERTISERS THERE.
It goes without saying that it is a great and terrible prohibition to read this magazine, besides the general prohibition against loshon horah and motzi shem rah ; and he who heeds this shall be granted pleasantness and blessing.
Those who may have erred and let copies of this magazine into their household are obliged to remove this evil from their midst before it, G-d forbid, contaminates the pure minds of children and women. Search out every last copy as carefully as you search out all chametz before pesach. Burn every copy just as you would burn chametz. If you say “ubiartah harah meikirbechah” while burning this vile publication it will be for a blessing to you and your family.
May G-d, Blessed is He, have compassion and pity on His people of Israel, and redeem it from all woe; and return His people soon, and may we merit a complete redemption soon, Amen.
