Jakarta Pest- Time to Move On?
Know The Man :George Soros Helped Nazis During Holocaust
He changed the family name from The Jewish Schwartz to Soros, the Esperanto for "will soar".
Here is a partial transcript from an interview done by Steve Kroft for CBS' 60 Minutes George Soros on December 20, 1998:
George Soros Interview On 60 Minutes
When the Nazis occupied Budapest in 1944, George Soros' father was a successful lawyer. He lived on an island in the Danube and liked to commute to work in a rowboat. But knowing there were problems ahead for the Jews, he decided to split his family up. He bought them forged papers and he bribed a government official to take 14-year-old George Soros in and swear that he was his Christian godson. But survival carried a heavy price tag. While hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews were being shipped off to the death camps, George Soros accompanied his phony godfather on his appointed rounds, confiscating property from the Jews.
Last Tuesday the Jakarta Post granted a large area of its centre spread to George Soros, the plutocrat whose wealth has lately been devoted to the advance of cultural marxism in America and, ipso facto, throughout the world.
His diatribe went after all the usual boogie-men and boogie-institutions hated by left-liberals, e.g. President Bush, V-P Cheney, the ‘ex-Trotskyite’ David Horowitz and of course Fox News. The latter’s sin, in Soros’ book, is apparently to describe itself as ‘fair and balanced.’
Mr. Horowitz got included in the spray of animosity, presumably, because he wrote a book called ‘The Shadow Party,’ about Soros and his pet project, MoveOn.org (well worth a read - sample quote.

I can also offer an alternative perspective on Soros from an article in Accuracy In Media An “Extremely Evil Person” by Cliff Kincaid, October 3, 2006. 
Speaking at a Washington symposium on the continuing threat posed by illegal drugs to American society, Calvina Fay of the Drug Free America Foundation declared billionaire George Soros to be an “extremely evil person” who wants to legalize dangerous mind-altering drugs. ,,. an atheist who is a major funder of the Democratic Party and liberal-left causes, is “our common enemy” and that he is determined to subvert traditional values and undermine America’s families.
Soros, convicted of insider trading in France, is a financial speculator and hedge fund operator who manipulates the currencies of the nations of the world in order to make himself rich. Some of his fortune, estimated at $7 billion, has been put into causes such as abortion rights, gay rights, drug legalization, voting rights for felons, euthanasia, and rights for immigrants and prostitutes. His Open Society Institute even helped underwrite attorney Lynne Stewart, subsequently convicted of helping terrorists. In 2004, he spent more than $20 million in an unsuccessful effort to defeat President Bush for re-election.
In an appearance at the same anti-drug event, Marc Wheat, staff director and chief counsel of the House Subcommittee on Criminal Justice, Drug Policy and Human Resources, described Soros as someone who seems to have no sense of guilt or responsibility for his actions.
He noted that, during a December 20, 1998, interview with 60 Minutes, Soros acknowledged that as a 14-year-old Jewish boy in Hungary , his identity was protected and that he actually assisted in confiscating property from Jews as they were being shipped off to death camps. Asked by interviewer Steve Kroft if he had any sense of guilt over what he did, Soros replied, “No.”
In the interview, Soros went on to compare his predicament at the time to the operation of economic markets, saying, “”¦if I weren’t there, of course, I wasn’t doing it, but somebody else would-would-would be taking it away anyhow.” Soros then insisted he was only a “spectator” and had “no role in taking away that property.” That is why, he said, “I had no sense of guilt.”
No uncritical admirer of either the incumbent American President or his deputy, ( I’m not American, by the way) I certainly give them more respect than a character like Soros.
