Just where are the religious and community leaders of the Judeo-Christian-American community when it comes to sounding the clarion call regarding the spreading of hatred for them from the followers of Islam? We've seen nothing but bowing down and scraping on invisible prayer rugs to those who now constantly call for a worldwide caliphate under their one and only god....Allah.
In this column, we'll focus on the feckless rabbis and Jewish organizations who seem to be unaware of the dangers facing our people from Muslims and the teachings of their holy book, the Koran. In Yiddish there's a term that seems to be tailor made for this situation. When referring to people's apparent ignorance, the term, "Nisht vissindick," might be more appropriate. It means, "willfully not knowing." In other words ignoring the obvious with a shrug of the shoulders. Our warning to them: You do so with great risk to yourselves and to the people you serve... Jews.
If you recall, Pam Geller was first given the approval to speak at the Great Neck Synagogue regarding the threats to us by Islam and then, under pressure from Islamic groups, her talk was canceled....by Jews. The 92nd Street Y invited fierce anti Israel advocates, Roger Waters and Alice Walker to spew their hatred to audiences.......of Jews. The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle invited a Jew hating Jewish group, Jewish Voice For Peace to participate and voice their hate for Israel at a Hillel conference attended by.....Jews.
South Florida, the place that is jam packed with Jewish communities is home to a growing breed of rabbis and Federations that cater not only to Muslims but to Jewish anti Israel celebrities who support the weakening and eventual destruction of Israel. The South Florida Jewish Federation has hosted singer and actor, Mandy Patinkin, representing Peace Now and Jason Alexander (George Costanza from the Seinfeld show) an advocate for the anti-Israel group, One Voice, at major fundraisers...for Jews. Boca Raton synagogues, Temple Beth El, B'nai Torah Congregation and Congregation B'nai Israel all rolled out the red carpet for J Street to trumpet the claims and aims of the Palestinians....to Jews. Rabbi Barry Silver of Congregation L'Dor Va-dor showers praise on and has radical imams with records of anti-Israel actions and verbiage, speaking to....Jews. We suggest they install metal detectors at their entrances.
Not to be outdone by individual affiliations and love affairs with Islamists, South Florida rabbis together with Christian clergy formed the Boca Raton and the Delray Clergy Interfaith Associations with memberships including churches, synagogues and the local terrorist affiliated, Islamic Center of Boca Raton. Isn't it strange that the black community is not replete with organizations trumpeting the calls for segregation, poll taxes and the return to pre-Civil War anti-black hatred. That would never be tolerated by their leaders. They are concerned for their people and their future. They are smarter than we are. We've got to learn from them. Let's start right now!!!
