Local rabbi trumpets radical Islam

Rabbi — oops, I mean Imam — Bruce Warshal, with his latest jihadist-inspired column in the South Florida Jewish Journal, goes after those who seek to educate American Jews and non-Jews of the threat we face from radical Islamists. Warshal calls my heroes, Steve Emerson, Pamela Geller, Daniel Pipes and David Horowitz, a “rogues gallery of haters.”

alg-resize-peter-king-jpgIncluded, for being a McCarthyite-type basher, is Republican Congressman Peter King, who valiantly tried to expose Islamist hate by holding congressional hearings with victims of this vile movement. Incidentally, King was rebuked by Democratic leaders, namely Sen. Dick Durbin, who followed up with his own hearings to “expose” Islamophobia.  Durbin, who represents the Illinois crew of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, Barack Obama and a vibrant Islamist base, did the bidding of the Council of American Islamic Relations — a Muslim Brotherhood offshoot — by holding this whitewash of radical Islam.

In the Jewish Journal article, Warshal whines about Michele Bachmann’s exposure of Hillary Clinton’s top aide and “companion,” Huma Abedin, as a Muslim Brotherhood member. Of course, he does not understand that Abedin’s mother is the head of the female Muslim Brotherhood in Saudi Arabia, that her brother is the head of the Muslim Brotherhood in Oxford, England, and that her father was the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Mich. Just look it up, Brucie.

Without being aware of it, Warshal claims that Republicans are on to the domestic threat of radical Islam and that the Democrats are not asleep, but rather in the forefront of enhancing their image and advancing their goal of the Islamization of this country.

Warshal represents the J Street crowd in South Florida and is also a national director of Americans for Peace Now. Both groups openly support all Palestinian causes and claims against Israel, with funding from George Soros and Muslim donors. He also writes for the violently anti-Israel, pro-terror newspaper, The Arab American.

Nevertheless, Warshal, who walks among South Florida’s Jewish community with his head high, is the darling of many leftists, hard-line Democrats and know-nothings, with nary a negative word or comment from any Jewish leaders at the top. Why is this? How is it that such a Jewish leader can libel defenders of Israel and the United States right here in the heart of the Jewish community and still have the paper that carries his venom deposited free in each and every synagogue in the area? Speak up! Stop its distribution.

    Oh my G-d Alan, Warshal is the same Rabbi I took to task last year in a half-page letter-to-the-editor. Rabbi "Brucie" campaigned against the Florida Congress passing a law to prevent Sharia Law from entering the state's judicial system. He made the argument that Judaic Law would be in jeopardy if this law was passed and convinced all in the religious sector of that. Add that to one Congressional leader getting in the way, as well. It is incomprehensible that people don't recognize that Sharia Law is unconstitutional.

    Soros shamelessly said that the time of his cooperation with the nazis in deportation of Hungarian Jews to Auschwitz was "the best days of his life". I hope Warshal and the likes will never have the chance to have similar joy with muslims. Or rather, I am sure that we will not allow them!

  • Janet Brown

    As an American and a Jew I can not for the like of me understand how the Jewish community can support this. Why are they so blind to this behavior and thinking. People like this will help the muslims accomplish what they want….to destroy Israel and then they will wonder how this happened. People get your heads out of the sand!!!!

    . I recently bowed out of the interfaith Holocaust service, because it was a custom to include Hatikvah at the end, but now some Christian groups object as they support the Palestinians and the Muslim Imams would either sit or leave during the Hatikvah. Perhaps interfaith Holocaust programs no longer make sense, at least to me. I do not need the stress of seeing disrespect being afforded to Israel and nor do I wish to compromise by leaving Hatikvah out. The interfaith Holocaust memorials started as well intentioned way for the Jewish people and other groups to pause and reflect on man's capacity to perpetuate unbelievable cruelty against his fellow and to commiserate as a group and others, with the Jews and hopefully prevent this nightmare from reoccurring. Over the years it was understandably modified to include other victims of genocidal mass killings, though these mass killings were not really analogous, as the Nazis were obsessed at not just killing Jews as a competing group, but Hitler desired to eliminate our creed and it's pervasive influence on humanity, particularly Christian doxy. As a result of Muslim participation and twisted liberalism, this is morphing into a twisted canard where Israel is being blamed for perpetuating ethnic killings against the Palestinians as the Jews were slaughtered by the Nazis. One can understand the Islamo-Nazis belief system with a quote from the Talmud. We do not see things as they are. We see them as we are. RABBI DR.

    As the child of parents who survived the concentration camps I have dedicated a my academic career and my clerical calling to educate the next generation to learn the lessons of the Nazi horrors. The first lesson of the holocaust is that the murder of6 million Jews in 21 nations did not begin with an edict to cast the Jews into the ovens. It began with a policy of demonizing the Jews as if they were less than human. Throughout WWII, the exiled Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin Al Husseini, operated out of Hitler's bunker and broadcast and rantings that called for the murder of the Jews on Nazi radio, in the Arabic language, a daily radio message that was beamed to the middle east, while the Mufti actively recruited Arabs to join SS units that systematically rounded up and executed thousands of Jewish families in the Balkans.

    on January 4th, 2013, Mahmood Abbas, the leader of what the UN has defined as the State of Palestine, issued a speech in which he praised the legacy of the Mufti of Jerusalem and of slew of Arabs who have murdered Jews over the past generation. To ignore Abbas's message is ignore the first lesson of the holocaust, which is that anyone who glorifies hose who murder Jews is to be held culpable in the advocacy of mass murder/

    It is therefore incumbent on every person of conscience to condemn Abbas and to break off all relations with him and the entity that he represents.

    I await a response from the representatives of every Jewish organization and from every responsible cleric.

    There is a adage in the Talmud which is that SILENCE IS AGREEMENT. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

      Add to the list of out-spoken Jew haters of today Egyptian President Morsi. His Jew hating rant to his supporters needs to be taken to task by the global community…if not, the die is cast for massive anti-Semitism, even in the U.S. Then, where will Rabbi Warshal and his ass-licking useful idiots go? Gaza? Europe? Africa? I dare them! Without Israel & the Jews on the forefront of the battle, where would the U.S. Jews be in the next decade?

    It may be time for a New Jewish DEFENSE League. Morsi is another Hitler in the making. OBAMA JUST GAVE HIM FREE F16 JETS AND LIBERALS THINK ALL IS WELL WITH THE JEWISH WORLD. Israel is surrounded by enemies with nuclear ambitions, a holocaust is in the making. Wake up Jews before it will be too late once again. Rabbi DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

    How sharper than a serpents tooth it is to have a radical Islamic -loving rabbi. Ignorance is no excuse, in the cases of Rabbi's Warshal and Steinhardt of Boca Raton, it is the real thing. With friends like them Israel doesn't need enemies.

    Looking beyond the rheteric about who wants to do what to who, let's see who is doing what to who. Israel is a small country. Maybe five to seven people. The Arabs around that country count maybe two to three hundred million. Israel has, by some counts about 200 or so nuclear warheads. Even though everyone seems to think that nukes are the ultimate weapon, they are not. Damage is really localized to a relatively small area if you match it against a dispersed population and guarilla fighting opportunities. Israel is courting worldwide displeasure by appropriating West Bank and East Jerusalem land that is occupied by Arabs. Israel is also centering itself against the world population by relying on the United States to veto any major Palestinian State questions. The casualty numbers that are reported usually are way out of proportion to the amount of ordinance expended by Israel and Hamas. If thousands and thousands of rockets are fired at Israel, maybe ten people die. If Israel uses airstrikes to locate and attack these rocket locations, thousands of Palestians die. I know that Hamas hides rockets in populated areas, but, where in Gaza is there no unpopulated areas? I believe in at least three areas: Settlements, Palestinian Statehood, and military response, Israel is getting publically toasted. I think that Israel and the Palestinians should request the UN deploy peace keeping troops, from UN nations, to enforce the borders between Israel and Gaza and the West Bank. Israel stops and returns the settlement land. It's a land grab. It ain't "Natural Growth", but more like "Liebenraum". Get serious about the Palestinian Statehood and talk about it. Israel is going to be a loser here without it, because, the borders will never be officially recognized by the two major parties: Israel and the Palestinians. On the firing back at the rocketeers, try a measure response. Here there is no solution unless the other two items are worked on. Need to get the Muslin countries in the area involved. Lots of references to the Holocaust are losing their power. That happened 70 years ago. And every time someone references an individuals "collaboration" with the nazis (Soros), should also let the readers know that he was about 13 or 14 at the time. Also, the horrible times make people turn in each other to live. A lot is missing in the story also in that many or the countries overrun by the nazis, the Jews were readily turned in by their neighbors and even murdered by members of their own neighborhoods. Also that, after the war, many of the Jews, after they left the Death Camps, could not go home, because these countries had all but rejected them by taking their property and they could even looked to being killed by their own neighbors, is they came home. This is why, along with the Zionist efforts to move Jews to Palestine, and the British wanting to "dump" the Palestine Mandate, the UN nations voted to establish the State of Israel.

    Don't get sidetracked by hate talk from either side. What are the facts? What does Israel need to SURVIVE?. What do the Arabs and the Jews need to get along? Because, despite all the talk, 2013 will be a big year for Israel and the Middle East. I hope everyone makes the right decision to talk, talk, and talk. The alternative is the end of Israel. That would be bad for everyone, Muslims included. If they overrun Israel, they have no right to demand national respect for themselves. Kind of like Israel is forfeitting this respect by taking occupied land. Just saying…

    There are, in fact, many of us who support the work of J Street for the simple reason that like many others here and in Israel we believe that that the world and the Jewish community is best served by rational, reasonable, honest efforts to seek real and lasting peace within the Middle East. Netanyahu just discovered that there are far more folks in Israel who seek this path than he thought. The sustained screams that anyone who ever suggests that Israel or a Jewish spokesperson may not be 100% correct in everything they say or do is Anti-semitic or somehow a Muslim sympathizer is ridiculous and stops all rational discourse in its tracks. No person, country or faith is somehow perfect by definition and all must be willing to listen, learn and honestly seek lasting and meaningful peace with those not just like them.
