James Trimms letter of false reconciliation
For those of you who dont know how to translate James Trimm's language, let me explain why this letter was a false apology. James Trimm posted on the forum about lashon hara, after my last mass mailing. This was the one where I had to make a rebuttal to his lies saying I had contradicted myself. At the forum he writes, "Many people make the mistake of thinking that the prohibition of lashon hara - negative speech - is limited only to saying falsity and untruth. But this is not so. Lying falls under a separate prohibition, expressed in Exodus 20:13, 23:7. Lashon hara is the prohibition against saying anything negative or derogatory about another person - even when it's true! Often, lashon hara will couch itself in a cloak of rationalizations. It doesn't even matter whether the words are spoken implicitly or implied. If the message can be construed negatively, then it is a violation of lashon hara. Be aware of potential lashon hara situations and stop them before they start."
This was a quote from the first e-mail James sent as a response
to my first e-mail to the Beit Din. "They have also spread both lies and lashon
hara. (Lashon Hara is information that is true but which is
So according to James Trimm, lashon hara is true, but said with malice. Therefore, when he apologizes for lashon hara concerning me, he is not saying that I am not an anti-semite, but rather that I am and since he said it in anger, that made it lashon hara and that is what he is apologizing for. So with this in mind, I sent a reply to James and carbon copied it to the Beit Din.
My reply to the false apology
James did not reply at all. You would think, that if I did misinterpret him, that he would have written back to clarify what he meant. But he didnt. That was another indicator that I was correct in how I read it. Instead of James writing back, Michael Detwiler does.

My Reply to Michael Detwiler about the false apology
The next thing I know, James has sent the same false apology to me again. And I am wondering why he would do that, when I realize what he is doing. I go to the forum, anticipating that he has put it up there and sure enough, it is. No corrections, the exact same one he sent to me. Then I get it again, when he sends it to the Beit Din. And I get it again when he sends it to all his lists. I knew exactly what was going on and what had been the intention in the first place. Write a crappy apology, then when I reject it, they can say that I am being difficult and not really wanting shalom. So I wrote Michael Detwiler and asked him if he counseled James to do this.

Now James re-enters the picture. Either Michael Detwiler or the Beit Din is putting pressure on him make this right.
