Will Jewish Community Leaders Stand Up?

Pages: 1 2

“Multiculturalism has utterly failed. . . .For years we’ve been deceiving ourselves.” Recent pronouncement of German Chancellor Merkel.

“Radical Islam is a clear and present danger to America.”
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on July 29, 2010 at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, DC.

These statements by German Chancellor Merkel and Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich serve as dire warnings to Westerners about the threat that we face in the terror war, yet many of our national and community leaders and clergy refuse to absorb the message, thereby representing the troubling and pathological phenomenon of denial in our society.

Our leadership fails to understand that our gestures of kindness and accommodation are interpreted as signs of weakness by the Islamic world. Peace cannot be created with forces who do not share our common values. And it is vital to stress: we are not fighting with Muslims; we are fighting with Islamic ideology. Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan stated it accurately when he said, “there is no such thing as moderate Islam vs. radical Islam, there is only Islam.” If there are moderates, they remain largely irrelevant because they either remain silent or they do not have influential positions in leadership.

When the Imam of the Islamic Society of Boston Mosque preached picking up the sword and fighting the infidel to rule our nation, Charles Jacobs, a prominent Jewish community leader, exposed the problems associated with the backers of the Mosque. Several of them have been convicted of fraud. Yet, in support of the Mosque, Rabbi Eric Gurvis and 70 other rabbis from Massachusetts blamed Jacobs for his comments rather than allow the truth to be known.

New York Rabbi Joy Levitt of Manhattan JCC and Rabbi Michael Friedland of South Bend, Indiana are major supporters of the mosque in New York. They ignore the fact that the planned mosque is actually part of Ground Zero. The building was condemned due to major damage caused by the fuselage of one of the terrorist planes. They also ignore that during Islamic domination, mosques were purposely built over the ruins of destroyed churches and Synagogues as a symbol of victory — like the mosque in Cordoba, Spain, the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul and the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.

In the Los Angeles area, home to the second largest Jewish community in the United States, many rabbis including Jonathan Klein, Steven Jacobs and Reuven Firestone support the Ground Zero Mosque. Rabbis Neil Comess-Daniels and Steven Carr Reuben, on the two holiest days in Judaism, chose overtly political sermons in support of the Ground Zero Mosque and the virtues of Islam.

Rabbi David Wolpe of Sinai Temple, the spiritual leader of one of the largest Conservative congregations in the United States, has been made aware, most recently by Morton Klein, President of ZOA, the Zionist Organization of America, about problems with Dr. Maher Hathout, a leading spokesperson for the American Muslim community. Hathout is co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) and one of the founders of — and senior advisor to — the Islamic Center of Southern California (ICSC). He supports attacks on Israel by the terrorist group Hezbollah and has called Israel a land of “butchers” and a system of “racist apartheid.”  In January 2008, Hathout gave his Friday sermon on the “Tragedy in Gaza,” and defended Hamas’ rocket attacks on Israel’s civilian communities.

Despite these matters being brought to the attention of Rabbi Wolpe, he has not taken a position of protecting the Jewish Community from such hateful commentary. He even had the Sinai Akiba 7th graders visit the Islamic Center in Los Angeles for a first-hand experience and the youngsters were lectured by no less than Dr. Hathout himself.

This is troublesome, particularly since at this moment in history, fanatics rule Islam. Fanatics wage wars worldwide and systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa. Fanatics bomb, behead, murder and honor-kill. Fanatics zealously insist on stoning and hanging adulterers, rape victims and homosexuals. It is these fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.

    Thank you, thank you, Susanne, for this profound expose.

    Yet it got me sick to follow down the list of the so called American "rabbis" – a curse of our people – who usher their flocks into the hands of the executioners, and betray our nation where Judaism is in the foundation. "Rabbis", who dishonor the very name of the Chosen people and worse: who dishonor the name of G-d speaking in His name!

    "Rabbis" for Mosque sounds Kafkaesque. In their sick efforts to strengthen Moslem (!) minority in the US, they want perhaps that the Jewish minority be not the only one in juxtaposition to the Christian majority.

    In their atavistic hostility to Christians, they are bringing home the most fierce religious savages, their own nemesis, the Moslems. For in their stupidity they are incapable to see what happens when Moslem minority exceeds the Jewish in the US.

      Do you think these people below were human beings? Part One

      1. "There is a huge gap between us (Jews) and our enemies, not just in ability but in morality, culture, sanctity of life, and conscience. They are our neighbors here, but it seems as if at a distance of a few hundred meters away, there are people who do not belong to our continent, to our world, but actually belong to a different galaxy." – Israeli president Moshe Katsav. The Jerusalem Post, May 10, 2001.

      2. "Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves." – Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin in a speech to the Knesset [Israeli Parliament] quoted by Amnon Kapeliouk, "Begin and the Beasts," New Statesman, June 25, 1982.

      • MixMChess

        1. You took Mr. Katsav's quote out context to defame Jews. In fact, Katsav was specifically talking about the brutal murders by Palestinian terrorists of two young SCHOOL CHILDREN. The remains of Kobi Mandel and Yossi Ish-Ran, who had played hooky from school to explore a cave, were found on May 9, 2001. The Jerusalem Post clearly placed Katsav’s words in that context:

        President Moshe Katsav said yesterday that Israel would never stoop to the brutality the Palestinians displayed in the stoning to death of two Tekoa teenagers this week.

        "There is a huge gap between us and our enemies – not just in ability but in morality, culture, sanctity of life, and conscience," Katsav told reporters at Beit Hanassi.

        "We would never stoop to the kind of brutality inflicted on the victims in Tekoa and Ofra," he added. "They're our neighbors here, but it seems as if at a distance of a few hundred meters away, there are people who don't belong to our continent, to our world, but actually belong to a different galaxy."

        Katsav said Israel must change its approach to the Palestinians, but stopped short of voicing exactly what that new approach should be — although he appeared to imply that retaliation is at times necessary.

        "Force is no solution to anything," he said, "but sometimes it's essential."

        Referring to the brutal murders of two young boys from Tekoa, Katsav said he is sure there are Palestinians and other Moslems who oppose terrorism, but it was terrifying to realize how much cruelty and hatred the Palestinians harbor against Israelis. (Jerusalem Post, May 11, 2001)

      • MixMChess

        2. This quote is completely fabricated, and the Begin Center has confirmed this. This quote was actually invented by Pastor Texe Marrs, an antisemetic and anti-Israel preacher from Texas.

        The quote was attributed to "Amnon Kapeliouk's article "Begin and the Beasts" (New Statesman, June 25, 1982) which routinely fabricated or took out of context quotes from Menachem Begin.

        The fact that you would repeat such horrible lies about Jews is pretty disgusting and shows what a huge piece of garbage you are as a human being.

      3. "Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it." – Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001, to Shimon Peres, as reported on Kol Yisrael radio.

      4. "We Jews, we are the destroyers and will remain the destroyers. Nothing you can do will meet our demands and needs. We will forever destroy because we want a world of our own." – You Gentiles, by Jewish Author Maurice Samuels,

      • MixMChess

        3. You are lying again Jamil. This quote was fabricated as well. The hoax originated with an October 3, 2001 press release from the PRO-HAMAS group, the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP).

        According to the IAP press release, the statement was reported on Kol Yisrael. However, Kol Yisrael confirmed that no such broadcast ever occurred.

      • MixMChess

        4. Uh oh, another quote taken out of context. Samuel was an obscure (and bad I might add) Jewish writer and his even more obscure book "You Gentiles" was discussing the differences between Jews and Gentiles in worldviews and culture. This quote comes from where he was discussing the perceptions that Jews have of Gentiles and Gentiles of Jews and is not meant to be taken literally. Clearly the satire is lost on Neo-Nazis such as yourself.

        • MixMChess

          In fact… the quote is from the chapter 'We, the Destroyers'. Where Samuel begins by acknowledging the hatred of the anti-Semites (such as yourself Jamil), and suggest that they see Jews as "destroyers." The actual quote begins on page 146 and states: "We Jews ARE ACCUSED of being DESTROYERS: whatever you put up, we tear down. It is true ONLY in a RELATIVE sense." His reference to being true in a relative sense is explained earlier on page 144 where he states that Gentiles fear assimilated Jews would disrupt Gentiles worldviews and monopoly on culture.

      Do you think these people below were human beings? Part Three

      5. "We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent." -Jewish Banker Paul Warburg, February 17, 1950, testifying before the U.S. Senate.

      6. "You know very well, and the stupid Americans know equally well, that we control their government, irrespective of who sits in the White House. You see, I know it and you know it that no American president can be in a position to challenge us even if we do the unthinkable. What can they (Americans) do to us? We control congress, we control the media, we control show biz, and we control everything in America. In America you can criticize God, but you can't criticize Israel." – Israeli spokeswoman, Tzipora Menache 2009

      Answer my question truthfully if you can.

      • MixMChess

        5. First of all the Banker Paul Warburg died in 1932. Senator James Paul Warburg is who you are actually quoting. The quote was when Warburg was speaking in favor of Senate Resolution 56 which sought to strengthen the United Nations.

        "I am aware, Mr. Chairman, of the exigencies of your crowded schedule and of the need to be brief, so as not to transgress upon your courtesy in granting me a hearing.

        "The past 15 years of my life have been devoted almost exclusively to studying the problem of world peace and, especially, the relation of the United States to these problems. These studies led me, 10 years ago, to the conclusion that the great question of our time is not whether or not one world can be achieved, but whether or not one world can be achieved by peaceful means.

        "We shall have world government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest."

        "Today we are faced with a divided world-its two halves glowering at each other across the iron curtain. The world's two superpowers-Russia and the United States-are entangled in the vicious circle of an arms race, which more and more preempts energies and resources sorely needed to lay the foundations of enduring peace.

        "…Thus we should present the Kremlin with two vital new facts not of its own making: First. The united determination of the majority of the world's peoples to establish a rule of law and thus eventually to free themselves from the burden of armaments and from the overhanging fear of annihilation; and

        Second. The steady progress of the massed forces of humanity embattled in a common crusade against hunger, poverty, disease, and ignorance.."

        Mr. Warburg was not threatening the US Senate committee with Jewish conquest. In fact, his reference to a WORLD government was the perceived threat of the Soviets (not the Jews) dominating the world. He was simply advocating for a strong UN to help ward off potential war with the Soviets.

        Jamil I think its time you crawled back under the rock from which you came.

      • MixMChess

        6. Woops another faked quote by an Israeli spokeswoman that doesn't even exist! This quote was fabricated by Hamas spokesman Khalid Amayreh in 2008 and posted on a neo-Nazi/pro-Palestinian website. The Pakistani Times completely plagiarized the quote and article and attributed it to the fabricated Israeli official in 2009. In fact even neo-Nazi sites recognize this quote is fabricated as it was used by Pakistani malware producers to download and propagate viruses over the internet.

      • MixMChess

        So yes Jamil, despite your antisemetic leanings Jews are in fact human beings too. However, neo-Nazi Jihadists like you are the scum of the earth. I hope it didn't hurt too much when I completely owned you, did it? And answer my question truthfully if you can!

  • http://www.resonoelusono.com/NaturalBornCitizen.htm Alexander Gofen

    To summarize it, the best is this excerpt from this letter of Keith Davies:

    "… Through our history many Jews have acted in betraying their G-d and their own people. The story of the Golden Calf, the Twelve Spies, the persecution of our prophets, the lack of faith in our rights as Jews and so on. If we think rationally why we have survived as a people based on our own collective behavior as a nation, we should not have survived at all. The only conclusion I can come as a Jew is that we have survived because of G-d himself and his mercy and compassion."

    I dare bet most of these Rabbis are Reformists

  • pjaffe

    These traitors of our faith will be crying when the Muslims come for them and their families here in USA. Will they ever understand the fight. Good vs. evil.

    • jamil Ghani

      I will tell you what is good and what is evil. When the Christians persecuted Jews and Muslims in Spain, it was the Muslims who helped the Jews because it was the right thing to do from the humanity point of view. Our religion states that we must always be just and stand against oppression. However the genocide in Palestine in current times is a clear testimony of the viciousness of Israel against the Palestinian people. They use sophisticated weapons including illegal amunition like phosphorous bombs as confirmed by UN whose resolutions are ignored by Israel. The greatest threat to world peace today is because of this terrorist nation called Israel. They have violated maximum number of UN resolutions. This is the reality!

      • MixMChess

        "However the genocide in Palestine in current times is a clear testimony of the viciousness of Israel against the Palestinian people."

        Nope Jamil, you are lying. There is not genocide of the Palestinians, in fact the Palestinian population has increased exponentially under Israeli rule. From 1993-2004 alone the Palestinian population increased by over 84%!

        "They use sophisticated weapons including illegal amunition like phosphorous bombs as confirmed by UN whose resolutions are ignored by Israel."

        Wrong again Jamil. In 2009 the International Red Cross stated that there is NO EVIDENCE suggesting that white phosphorus is being used improperly or illegally by Israel.

        Peter Herby of the IRC stated that "using phosphorus to illuminate a target or create smoke is legitimate under international law," and that there was "no evidence the Jewish state was intentionally using phosphorus in a questionable way, such as burning down buildings or consciously putting civilians at risk."

        Oddly enough, white phosphorus was being used as a weapon against civilians by Hamas, which fired mortar shells from Gaza into Israel filled with white phosphorus.

        "The greatest threat to world peace today is because of this terrorist nation called Israel."

        Nope, the greatest threat to the world peace today is radical Islam as trumpeted by the likes of the Palestinians. Hamas has called for the worldwide genocide of the Jews, Hezbollah seek to exterminate Christians in the Middle East and world at large, Islamic Jihad has stated that it would slaughter all non-Muslims (including not Just Jews and Christians but Buddhists, Hindus, Bahai, Pagans, Zorastarians and Atheists.

        "They have violated maximum number of UN resolutions."

        You are clearly ignorant of International law, general council resolutions have no legal weight or authority under international precedent or jus cogens. Only security council resolutions are binding which Israel has always obeyed and respected.

  • Lady_Dr

    Jacob, I just checked these names and they include Progressive, Reconstructist, Reform, and Conservative – NO Orthodox. These people abandoned the religion of their forefathers and now have confused the Left's agenda with Judaism. No surprise here. These traitors cannot be reasoned with as their actions are entirely based on their own fantasies, emotions, and the irrational believe system of the left. The Orthodox still have a grasp on reality.

    • http://www.resonoelusono.com/NaturalBornCitizen.htm Alexander Gofen

      Mind, you mentioned even one "conservative" among them!

      They all dishonor the name of G-d speaking in His name! They defile and discredit Judaism speaking as though in its name.

      And mind: nobody of rabbis – of any rabbis, not even the orthodox, would publicly stand against homosexual agenda or preach that it is a sin and abomination! They neglect their G-d given mission of bringing the light of Torah, and on the contrary: they discredit it.

      They are a curse of our people.

  • BS77

    The problem is not Judaism…it is liberalism….which is an irrational and untenable ideology….it makes idiots out of intelligent people….liberalism means bending over backwards for those who would harm you, being a doormat for open immigration and sanctuary cities….it means appeasing evil dictators and voting for fools. The problem is PC liberalism, no matter what religion you follow. There are liberal PC types from many different religioius backgrounds who would vote for a rotten log if it ran as a Democrat.

  • Marty

    Only violence and death can be expected from a brutal cult founded by a pedophile and genocidal sociopath. Islam is little different from Naziism and is every bit opposed to Jews remaining alive and free or for western civilization to continue.

  • waterwillows

    While it is true that a religious background is not the deciding factor in making dumb ass fools out of people, it is noticable that Jews do have an ethnic intelligence. This man does not appear to be using this intelligence. Or is he?
    Liberalism is another way of hoping that by assisting the evil at the door, they will be the ones to be spared for last. But at the expense of people, like you and me.
    Throughout history there are many instances of this type of logic being put into play. And while it has shown itself to be of little merit for the coward, nonetheless there are still those who would do their worst and help to sacrifice others first.

    • ajnn

      1. "While it is true that a religious background is not the deciding factor in making dumb ass fools out of people",

      Religion is NOT any factor is "making dumb".

      2. Regarding intelligence'; IQ has little to do with 'sense' or wisdom'.

      I have some problems with your formulations and assumptions. However, your conclusion that 'Liberalism' (the ideology of the left) is a big problem in understanding who the good guys are is a point with which we can all find concurrence.

      Its not the religion or the ethnic backround; its the darn college education !!! [What is a Jewish dropout ? No PHD.]

      As pointed out above, these foolish jewish people are almost 100% 'Reform Jews' and there is some question whether they are properly (Maimonides 16 Points) Jewish at all. The Reform Jews are not required to believe in G-d, follow jewish practices at worship or in the home, and generally are only identifiable as 'jewish by their last names.

      So, please do not mix judaism in with your condemnation of these very foolish people.

      • Atlas_Collins

        Thanks, ajnn. I've always wondered why there was such a preponderance of ashkenazi sounding names among the leading lights of the marxian left. I guess they've been infecting the academy with their utopian dreams and their vicious hatred of the bourgeois traditions of the West for a very long time.

    • BS77

      The cemeteries from WW II have many graves where brave American loving Jews made the ultimate sacrifice. There are countless patriotic, America loving Jews who stand with Israel, stand with the United States and the flag, and are patriotic conservative traditionalists.

    The irony of these statements made by these Rabbis lies in the fact that if they were Muslims speaking about Islam in this way, they would be slaughtered by their own people. The fact is this: there is no such thing as a peaceful side to Islam. It is a code that encompasses every aspect of life including world domination and the killing of anyone that does not succumb to Islam. Read the Koran, and try to spin it in any way you like. It is time to abandon this notion of political correctness, and the idea that we can negotiate with these people. Golda Mayer said it best; If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am only for myself, what am I. If not now when?

  • sydchaden

    These rabbis are Democrats. The majority of American Jews who vote Democratic consider it their religious duty to do so. The fact that a number of the causes supported by American Jewish Democrats are in contradiction to the Talmud simply illustrates that the Democratic Party is the source of their religious beliefs, rather than the Talmud.

  • Waldemar

    "And it is vital to stress: we are not fighting with Muslims; we are fighting with Islamic ideology. Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan stated it accurately when he said, “there is no such thing as moderate Islam vs. radical Islam, there is only Islam.” If there are moderates, they remain largely irrelevant because they either remain silent or they do not have influential positions in leadership."

    Sorry, Susan, the above is an oxymoron. Yes, we fight Muslims because they BELEIVE in the ideology. OTHERWISE, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN MUSLIMS. The Dear Leader Erdogan is clear about that.

    Let Allah have Mercy on you, Susan.

  • Waldemar

    Two more comments. First, there is no "War on Terror" anymore that WWII was a "War on the U-boats." Terror is simply one of the weapons in the Jihadists' arsenal. Jihadists are simply Muslims – that 's, Jihad, as "The Propagation of Faith by any means" is a sacred duty of ALL Muslims. That's why you will never hear from those mythical "moderates" who prefer "stealth Jihad" to its violent variety. Second, the Rabbis discussed in this block are Socialists, as Vicki above has noted. Thus, thry hate capitalism and naturally want to honor those Magnificent Nineteen who on September 11, 2001 sacrificed their love in their fight against capitalism.

    Susanne, kudos to you for giving voice to many of us who are so disappointed with today's Jewish leadership. During World War II, as many Jews were being marched to the gas chambers, much of the Jewish leadership at that time remained silent for fear of anti-semitism. Today, many Jews stand on the side of political correctness and lack the courage to defend their fellow brethren. They are a disgrace. Thank you for exposing them.

  • http://www.paulschnee.com Paul Schnee

    When describing the European powers' policies towards Nazi Germany, prior to the outbreak of World War II, Winston Churchill noted that they kept feeding the crocodile hoping that the crocodile would eat them last. Like so many of us they were unable or, worse still, unwilling to recognize the real and stark nature of the threat.

    Admitting that one has a problem promptly raises the moral obligation of acting to resolve it. In his "INFERNO" Dante reserved the most scorching parts of Hell for those who, faced with a moral dilemma, tried to remain neutral. Susanne Reyto has correctly identified the threat we face as well as the poltroons masquerading as leaders who are never quite able to explain how the prospects of peace can be advanced by advancing the prospects of those organizations and ideologies that are dedicated to war and the destruction of western civilization.

    It is disturbing to watch those in positions of responsibility attempting to burnish their liberal credentials while exposing the rest of us to mortal danger. Clearly it is time for them to understand the warning contained in Thomas Mann's dictum: "Tolerance is a crime when applied to evil".

  • Suzi Patrusky

    Liberal rabbis in Los Angeles, and probably all over the country are complicit in aiding the Muslim agenda. They are telling us and our children that Islam is a religion of peace, when it is not. They were in denial before and during the holocaust. Were they blind or dumb? When they should have spoken out, they didn't. They cowered and pandered. Now they are doing the same.

    It is so important that all Americans, especially Jewish Americans, see what is going on. The proof of the horrors of Islam is right before our eyes. Denial will bring disaster. We must all confront and question our community leaders, especially our rabbis, and present the truth. If we are aware and prepared, we can prevent what the Muslims are doing in Western Europe from coming here. This article by Susanne Reyto tells it as it is.

  • shirllew

    This comment is needed to wake up Jewish American leadership – when it comes to radical Islam they are dangerously asleep at our – Israelis and Jews – peril.

  • freedml

    Not surprising that Reform and Renewal Rabbis take this position, nor that Orthodox take the opposite position. The saddest and most surprising thing is that virtually all Conservative Rabbis take this position. Maybe it's self-selection (most people who want to be Conservative Rabbis already believe this) or maybe it's drummed into them in the University (most Orthodox Rabbis go to Yeshiva rather than secular Universities and are therefore not exposed to the usual brainwash). I'm especially disappointed in Rabbi
    Wolpe's action (and lack thereof) on this subject.

  • Michelle

    Thank you Suzanne for outing these Rabbis. I will get the word out to my right-thinking Jewish friends and colleagues to BOYCOTT any and all of the synagogues with the Rabbis you have named. The idea of these Jewish "leaders" being tolerant and reaching-out towards Jewish hate groups is ridiculous. These Rabbis seem to be ignorant of the facts. They are also dangerous because their leadership is leading the Jewish people down a precarious path. It reminds me of the attitude of Jews in the 1930s who were eventually led to their slaughter. We are living in a new age and Jews need to know their enemy and from your article, I now understand the enemy namely, Rabbie Wolpe is living among us.

  • Madelyn

    Thank you for writing and sharing this most thorough and timely article! Unfortunately the truth hurts. Many will not be able to accept this message…it is easier to pretend it isn't so. Others will be overwhelmed at the reality of the stiuation. Yet others will question "how did we get into this deplorable situation?". And those of us who are with you will say, let's roll up our sleeves and go to work and send this article to everyone on our lists TODAY!

    Wonderful article and unfortunately so true. When will we wake up… If we do not care then we will wake up only to discover that it's too late..especially our own clergy who seem almost intent on not recognizing the truth that radical Islam is out to get the world.!!We need more of this kind of information to alert the world of what may be coming.

  • N. Feldman

    Excellent and thought-provoking article. Ufortunately some of the responses are merely knee-jerk hate-filled diatribes while Suzanne's words deserve intelligent ideas that may lead to solutions. The rabbis she describes remind one of ostriches – only these have their heads somewhere other than in the sand.

    Some feel that if they wear the emblems of outdated sixties peace rubbish such as 'peace, bro', 'kumbaya' and so forth, they may exempt themselves and perhaps, the entire world from the possibility of any and all atrocities. But these empty emblems are outdated and irrelevant against the onslaught of Islam. The evidence mounts daily, hourly, by the minute, and by the second. The emblem fetishists are fools.

    The Rabbis who are suppoters of Ilam do itout of ignorance. Islam still hate Jews, Rabbi or not, reform or secular or religious. Jews in America under 50 are like the Jews like Soros who exposed where Jews lived for Nazis.
    Religious leaders of Christendom are no better, as Jesus never interfaithedd with Judaism or the Roman priests etc. Under pressure from the government to "be nice to Muslims they forget their mission. Islam is Satanic according to Surah 3:54. Allah, the god with no name, bragged about being the greatest liar, deceiver and schemer,

    If liberal Jews were not so dangerous to our people one could look upon them with pathos. They are so desperate to be loved and included into the larger society that they make utter and complete fools of themselves. Aw c'mon Rabbis do try to see what is really going on! If you want to maintain your Anne Frank mentalities do it on your own private time. The fact that we have to pay your salaries for spewing forth this absolute nonsense it beyond my comprehension. While you are annointing yourselves with denial ointments our world is buring around us. Susanne Reyto really gets it….how about using our time and money more wisely. Consult with her, and come back with correct interpretations this time! Shelley Ventura-Cohen

    I cant believe that the Rabbis are liberal.,not thinking the results of allowing to built
    a mosque where it reminds sadness and crime on the behalf of the extrimist Muslims.
    We have to find these people and show them that they are wrong. We do not reward evil
    to built a mosgue where the it brings back evil memories. I think they want to built the mosque to show they won the war.It is just the beginning for the Muslim to try Sharia law in USA. They will win. We are too nice and understanding which brings our downfall with extrimist. Marlene

    Do all of you accept everything you read so non-critically? Do you really believe the accuracy of the allegations in this post? Can the author validate them, or is she just repeating rumors? She doesn't bother to provide any sources, nor can she. It's one thing to be liberal or conservative. It's another just to be wrong–and even worse to be duped.
