Jstreet collects over 10,000 signatures in support of plan to build Mosque near ground zero in New York. ADL says the plan is “counterproductive”.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the main force behind a plan to build a mosque two blocks from Ground Zero in New York, thanked on Tuesday the American Jewish supporters who backed the proposed center amid a widespread contoversy.
“I express my heartfelt appreciation for the gestures of goodwill and support from our Jewish friends and colleagues”, he said.
“Your support is a reflection of the great history of mutual cooperation and understanding that Jewish and Muslim civilizations have shared in the past, and remains a testament to the enduring success of our continuing dialogue and dedication to upholding religious freedom, tolerance and cooperation among us all as Americans.”
Liberal “Tikkun” magazine editor Rabbi Michael Lerner called ADL’s decision a “shame,” adding that “ADL leader Abe Foxman presented the position of this organization that claims to oppose discrimination by reading a formal statement that seemed to be a perfect example of shooting and crying.”
Responding to the critics, Abraham Foxman told “Haaretz” that his statement was distorted by “all kinds of groups and people with political agendas.”
“ADL’s position is very clear and simple – it is about location and sensitivity, it is not about religious freedom and prejudice. When the Catholic Church wanted to build a prayer center near Auschwitz, we said no and called the world to confront it,” Foxman said.
“We were labeled anti Christians, until Pope John Paul said they can build their center one mile away. And it’s been there for the last 15 years, without any conflict,” he added.

When Jews support the building of a Mosque near ground zero in Manhattan. I guess they would like to join in a loud shout of “Allah is great”.
Because the same shoutings was heard in the cock-pit of the airliners that brought the Twin Towers down.
“Allah” was do great that day, that 3.000 people perished in an inferno of flesh that was burned by aircraft fuel. I am sure it must have been like a living hell inside the offices that received the blessings of Islam.
Liberal and apostate Jews will surely join Muslims in prayer at dome of the Rock in Jerusalem one day. It does not seems to matter any more, if people joins synagogues, mosques or churches in prayer.
The One World religion that promotes and demands unity of fall faiths, will not end their mission in a disgraced Mosques at Lower Manhattan. They delete and over jump the sacrificial death and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah. To side with the false religion of Islam, will set you on a destiny for the eternal fire of hell, prepared for Satan and his children.
If you by default end up in Hell, please do not forget that I warned you.
