A Holocaust of Justice:
Neal Sher and the OSI

By Michael Collins Piper


.All-new revelations of corruption by the Justice Department’s “Nazi-hunting” Office of Special Investigations (OSI) in the effort to falsely implicate a 90-year old Ukraine-born Cleveland man, John Demjanjuk, as a Nazi war criminal are no surprise to anyone familiar with the record of the OSI’s longtime director, Neal Sher, who led the conspiracy against Demjanjuk, a malicious campaign that goes back some 30 years.
In AFP’s April 25 edition, former Rep. JimTraficant (D-Ohio) noted in his column that a recently declassified long-secret FBI report from 1985 revealed the FBI had concluded the so-called proof that Demjanjuk was a WWII guard at the German-run Sobibor* work camp in Poland — what was purported to be an official German-issued identification card — had been, in the FBI’s judgment, “quite likely fabricated” by the Soviet Union.
Although Sher and the OSI knew the FBI considered the document a forgery, they withheld this from Demjanjuk’s defense at the time Demjanjuk was first being accused of being a war criminal and sent to Israel where he was tried and convicted on war crimes charges and sentenced to hang.
Had it not been for the singular efforts of Traficant, then in Congress, Demjanjuk would have died on the gallows.
However, Traficant stepped forward — the lone member of Congress to do so — and launched an honest, unbiased investigation. He brought forth evidence that a key OSI witness had committed perjury with the knowledge of the OSI in claiming Demjanjuk was a guard at the Treblinka work camp in Poland and proved that it was another individual altogether.
As a consequence, the Israeli Supreme Court reversed Demjanjuk’s conviction, allowing Traficant to bring Demjanjuk home to freedom.

More recently, however, the OSI — refusing to accept defeat — again went after Demjanjuk, now claiming he had been a guard at Sobibor. Demjanjuk was again deported and has been on trial in Germany on the basis of the Soviet fraud placing him as a guard at Sobibor.
Amazingly, however, the German court rejected appeals by Demjanjuk’s attorney that the trial be suspended until further investigation of the OSI’s culpability in fabricating evidence against his client.
In light of all of this, the record of Sher, the OSI director who masterminded the persecution of Demjanjuk is revealing.
In the summer of 2002, Sher was forced out as chief of staff in the D.C. office of the International Commission on Holocaust Era Insurance Claims (ICHEIC). Sher was caught taking “unauthorized reimbursements” on his extravagant worldwide travel expenses for the ICHEIC. In other words, he was an embezzler.
A longtime hero of the Jewish community and a widely promoted “media star,” Sher was effectively stealing from self-described “Holocaust survivors” and their heirs.
A leading force in what has been called “the Holocaust industry,” the ICHEIC was established jointly by a variety of European insurance companies, Holocaust survivor groups, top Jewish organizations and the Israeli government to sort out claims by Holocaust survivors who alleged that insurance companies refused to pay their families’ insurance policies.
Although Sher’s resignation was announced on June 20, 2002, it was not known until late in the year that he had been the subject of a secretive corruption investigation carried out at the direction of former Secretary of State Lawrence Eagleburger, the well-paid ICHEIC chairman.
The Sher scandal was considered so “sensitive” to Jewish public relations concerns that Eagleburger asked William Webster, former director of the FBI and the CIA, to convene a high-level review of the secret internal investigation that led to Sher’s forced resignation.
Because of his ties to the Justice department and his long-standing services to the Jewish community, Sher did not face charges and go to prison, despite having confessed to misappropriating ICHEIC funds.
Sher is said to have reimbursed the Holocaust outfit for the stolen funds. His longtime secretary at the OSI hung up when AFP called in 2002 to ask if the OSI would be investigating misuse of OSI funds by Sher during his tenure there.
For 11 years, until his departure in 1994, Sher had been director of the OSI. After leaving the OSI, Sher went on to serve as executive director of AIPAC, the powerful Israeli lobby that listed Traficant as its number one target. Ultimately, a clique of Justice Department lawyers — using Sher-style tactics — concocted a trumped-up corruption case against Traficant and sent the populist congressman to prison.

Under Sher’s direction, the OSI was implicated in other corruption. The late former U.S.Attorney General Eliot Richardson — while serving as attorney for the INSLAW corporation — discovered OSI was responsible for the theft of surveillance software (known as “Promis”) which INSLAW was under contract to provide the Justice Department. However, the OSI conspirators stole the software and turned it over to Israel’s intelligence service, Mossad.
Richardson also charged that Sher’s OSI operated a covert-operations unit inside the Justice department, involved in assassinations and other acts designed to silence American political dissidents.
The exposure of Sher’s pilfering lent credence to the charge by many that “the Holocaust” has essentially become “a racket,” a point driven home by American Jewish professor Norman G. Finkelstein in his book, The Holocaust Industry: Reflections on the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering.**
Ironically, Finkelstein was denied academic tenure for writing that book because he raised questions about the ICHEIC and its profiteering administrators — a contention proven by Sher’s exposure as an embezzler.
At the time the INSLAW scandal was erupting, The Spotlight newspaper led the media in publicizing the affair. A Justice department attorney promoted to a federal judgeship in return for his services on behalf of the OSI thieves — S. Martin Teel — issued a ruling that liquidated The Spotlight in 2001 after it was forced into bankruptcy. That all came about as a result of a conspiracy orchestrated by Andrew Allen, a San Francisco millionaire with family ties to the New York Jewish “Our Crowd” elite, who had bragged under oath that he was involved in intelligence operations in Afghanistan and Burma known to be under the direction of both the CIA and Israel’s Mossad.
