of Jewish communal property in Lithuania


21 June 2011.  After two decades of procrastination, the Lithuanian parliament passed a watered-down bill, valuing property formally at 30% of value (in reality vastly less), and failing to indicate the name of the recipient body for the funding, leaving the door open to extended contrived infighting managed by the right-wing camp and its handful of powerful Jewish puppets. The ten-year (!) schedule for paying out the restitution for looted communal properties is slated to start in 2013, and extend over a decade in which there there will be close to zero Holocaust survivors alive to be helped.
