Question mark

Is it OK to help people gain from dealing in prostitution, child trafficking, drugs and arms dealing?

If you then use that money to build a Talmud Torah, or a hospital, or a Jewish State?
In last week’s Parsha,  Ki Teitzei, we read this (23:19):

“You shall not bring a harlot’s hire or the exchange for a dog to the House of Hashem, your God….for both of them are an abomination of Hashem, your God.”

So.

Even if you can get a million, a billion, a trillion from, say, helping the mafia to launder its funds….

Or, say, helping the CIA-nazis carry on their MK Ultra experiments on Jewish children….
Or, say, by working with people like former SS member and founder of the Bilderbergers, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands….
And you’re going to use all that money only to help Am Yisrael!!!
All you’re going to do with it is build Talmud Torahs, and hospitals, and schools, and roads, and buy lots and lots and lots of weapons to defend the Jewish homeland (oh, and to carry on secret experiments on super hi-tech ways of controlling and eliminating ‘the enemy’, many of which are evil and the opposite of ‘ethical’….)
Even so.

Yes or no?

And does the answer change, if the person who is doing all this is a Holocaust survivor?

    No doubt it all goes to the sitra achra.

    Clean, kosher money has a very high source, as Rebbe Nachman explains in Likutey Moharan, and presumably is very difficult to get.

    People who think they can wash all this money clean by putting it into “holy” projects are in for a big surprise…
