Dear Herr von Holtzbrinck:


I am writing to you concerning Gary Weiss, who was terminated from Business Week for lying about his sources- specifically me and whom St. Martin’s Press has permitted to disseminate his lies and ethnic bias.


In this second missive I wish to prove to you that Gary Weiss will smear individuals as anti-Semites in order to cover up his lies.


Two of Gary Weiss’ associates, Sam E Antar, a convicted felon, and Howard Sirota, a disreputable class action attorney, were involved with Barry Minkow, who perpetrated the ZZZZ Best stock swindle and is currently in federal prison for violating security laws in an attempt to bring an S&P 500 corporation to its knees.  Antar and Minkow are two phonies, who claim to have religion.


I have enclosed for your perusal a copy of a letter, dated 2 July 2007, and signed by Mr. Joel Mazar of the Anti-Defamation League.  Of course I am exonerated from the charge of anti-Semitism.  But this was an attempt by Weiss to smear my name.  (Copy of letter enclosed; copy of FBI wire order enclosed.)


At one time I was close to Weiss.  We worked for one year on the article, “Scandal On Wall Street.”  Weiss even confided in me that Stephen Shepard, Editor in Chief, of Business Week was his mentor because they both had attended Bronx High School of Science, CUNY (Shepard, City College; Weiss, Lehman); and because they were Jewish.


Well if not for Mr. Sam Kaplan lending my father $5,000 circa 1950 on a handshake so that my father could pay for the delivery of liquor at his liquor store, my father would have lost his business.


As I have stated previously Weiss lied about the murders of Al Chalem and Maier Lehmann.  Weiss knew that Feivel Gottlieb, a personal friend of Seymour Zucker, had earned millions trading the stock frauds of Maier Lehmann.  Weiss also knew that Warren Sulmasy had permitted the Russian Mob to takeover Harbor Securities.  Weiss had listened to my taped conversations with Guy Velardi and a brief encounter with Al Santamaria.


Stephen Shepard and Seymour Zucker knew that the Russian Mob had murdered Chalem and Lehmann.  But they let Weiss print his lies.  Weiss hoped to be able to land a TV deal to write a series like The Sopranos; but he failed.


But what is worse is that Weiss provided false information to the FBI about the murders of Chalem and Lehmann.  The killers got away with murder because Weiss wanted to obtain a book contract and TV contract to write about the Italian Mafia.


I have included a second article, The Amex Is Starting To Feel The Heat, which was published in the May 1999 issue of Business Week.  In this article I am shown to be more credible than Frank Zarb, CEO of NASD.


It is ironic that Weiss wrote about the Jayson Blair imbroglio, when Weiss’ lies were far worse.  Weiss protected the Russian Mob and let the killers go free.


And once again I have provided a redacted copy of the United Nations order, dated 16 March 2005, to evict Anjali Sharma, the Weiss’ wife, whose name has been redacted from the document.


You should terminate the individuals at St. Martin’s Press who covered up for Weiss.


Thank you.
