The enemedia is making much of the fact that the far-left "Rabbis for Human Rights" group has taken out an ad countering my pro-Israel, pro-freedom ad in New York and Washington. They don't bother to mention that leading Jewish voices like Caroline
Glick, Martin Sherman, Paul Schnee, Steve Goldberg and Lori
Lowenthal-Marcus support my ad. So this shows the diversity of opinion
within Judaism, which is a notable contrast to the Muslim community --
where are the moderate Muslims speaking out in support of my ad?
These rabbis have good intentions. I am all for choosing love. My own ad speaks to the defense of freedom and individual rights for all. There's nothing hateful about it. 9/11 was hate. 3/11 in Madrid was hate. 7/7 in London was hate. The Fort Hood jihadi was hate. The Christmas underwear bomber was hate. The Fort Dix Six was hate. Pushing back against such hate is not hate.
I doubt that the rabbis know anything about the jihad doctrine that relentlessly seeks to violently impose Islamic law and pursues jihad against non-Muslims, or about the Islamic antisemitism that is deeply ingrained in the Qur'an and Sunnah, and that identifies the Jews as the worst enemies of the Muslims (Qur'an 5:82) and under Allah's curse (Qur'an 9:30). When have they spoken out against THAT hate, because of which Jews suffer daily? When have they called upon Muslim leaders to reform the Qur'an and expunge its virulently antisemitic texts, which are routinely quoted on Palestinian Authority TV as justifying endless warfare against the State of Israel and Jews everywhere? What topsy-turvy moral compass have they employed to come to the conclusion that the "hater" is not the imams who routinely preach violence and antisemitism in mosques and on TV in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, but me when I try to call attention to the barbaric cruelty of the jihad against Israel?
Some rabbis know the truth, and aren't afraid to speak up. Rabbi Fishel Jacobs wrote me, "We don't know one another. However I just wanted to drop this short note of encouragement and moral support. With esteem, I have been reading your writings and seeing your messages
to the public about the dangers of Islam to modern society, particularly
the U.S. and, of course Israel. I can not agree with you more.
You are a thoughtful and courageous person. Your ethical fiber brings me great pride. If I can ever be of any assistance, please let me know."
Here is just one of the many who have written to me in support of my ads. And Rabbi Fischel is a real rabbi, not a foolish masquerader.
