I wrote an article this week about a rabbi in Birmingham who invited a mufti from Bosnia to do Islam’s PR at an interfaith evening at his synagogue. This, of course, seems mild in comparison to what one reader reported from St. Louis: “On Rosh HaShanah of 2000–right after the start of the second intifada–one of our rabbis taught her congregation an Arabic chant for ‘Allah is great.’ My wife and I walked out and never went back.”

Another reader shared the following: “I stopped answering to different Jewish organizations collecting money or calling me to participate in demonstrations for ‘gay rights to marry.’ And I simply delete invitations to ‘participate in joint prayer with a Rabbi, a Christian Minister and a Muslim Cleric.’ I even do not send them as a public service your article ‘Dumb Jews’ anymore.”

And a third reader gave me a window into the mind of another Jewish genius: “I’m embarrassed by liberal Jews, especially after a Jewish acquaintance was arguing with me that the situation for Muslims in France is comparable to the Jews in pre-WWII Germany. Hence, she was worried there may be a Muslim Holocaust.”

As the St. Louis reader put it–quoting the late former West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer: “In view of the fact that God limited the intelligence of man, it seems unfair that He did not also limit his stupidity.”
