Riverdale rabbi: Don't blame Islam for terror plot to bomb synagogues
NY DAILY NEWS ^ | May 23rd 2009 | Tanyanika Samuels and John Lauinger

Schwartz for News

Rabbi Avi Weiss speaking at an earlier event in support of Israel. He told congregants at the the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale Saturday not to blame Islam for the recent plot to bomb synagogues.

In the Bronx neighborhood targeted by a terror plot, a prominent rabbi cautioned Sabbath worshippers Saturday against condemning the Muslim religion.

"We dare not condemn Islam over this one act," Rabbi Avi Weiss told congregants at the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale.

Weiss' temple was not targeted in the alleged conpsiracy, but two other Riverdale synagogues were.

The four Jew-hating suspects were homegrown jailhouse converts to Islam - not hardened extremists trained in some Middle Eastern camp.

Weiss said that fact "reminds us that Islamic fundamentalism has spread here and attracted congregants."

Using an informant, authorities secretly monitored the cabal for more than a year, providing them with phony bombs and a disarmed missile.

They were busted Wednesday as they tried to carry out the plan to blow up the temples and a military plane.

Despite the success of the sting operation, Weiss said he was worried authorities are unaware of other mass murder plots.

"This cell was caught, but how many others are out there?" he questioned.

The foiled attack should send a sobering message to people of all faiths, Weiss said, noting the suspects appear to have randomly selected their targets.

"It could have been any synagogue. It could have been any temple," he said.

"We dare not forget that an attack against any house of worship is an attack against every house of worship."

He sounds like an Obama voter. Abe Foxman of the ADL has been condemning Geert Wilders of Holland who is fighting against the tide of Islamification of Holland and W Europe. Sane Jews like Savage, Pam at Atlas Shrugs and Joyce Kaufman (talk radio) support Wilders.

Maybe he is right. They may not have cared which house of worship they targeted as long as it was filled with Jews. Pretty random there, huh?

There are none so blind as those who will not see.

Schwartz is disgusting. The kind of Jew who told German Jews “the Nazis would never get rid of us..they need us too much” and walked right into the gas chambers. Other REAL Rabbis need to come out and denounce the prison conversions of prisoners.

Honestly....for the life of me...I just don’t understand. Are these Jews in complete denial?

Weiss is not a real Jew. He is of the Reform denomination (what real Jews called "Deformed" Judaism). They usually follow Marx more than Moses, demand the "peace process" (vivisection of Israel) and "interfaith dialogue" (appeasement to Islam). And of course they worship the Jew-hating Obama.

It is a constant source of embarrassment and anger to real Jews when Deformed scumbags like Weiss open their stupid secular mouths.

FYI...Overall "Jews" voted 69% for JohnKerry. But "Religious Jews" voted 71% for Bush, according to the Republican Jewish Coalition. Thankfully, these Socialist JINOs are intermarrying, turning gay, and aborting their babies, so eventually they will be cleansed from our clan, just like the Golden Calf sinner were cleansed by God in the desert. Meanwhile religious Jews are having 6.5 kids per couple.

We dare not condemn Islam over this one act," True, but it's hardly just "this one act". I do believe you probably saw the smoke on 9-11-01, maybe saw one or more of the towers fall? That was another act. The bombing of Marine Barracks in Beriut was another, as were the bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, the attack on the USS Cole. Even the "Beltway Snipers" were Muslims. The guy, Hesham Mohamed Hadayet< who shot up the EL Al counter at LAX was Muslim too.

Better get your head out of where the sun don't sign, and get a clue. A whole bunch of them want you dead, sight unseen, because you are doubly "guilty", you are a Jew, and you are an American.

Who in blood blue blazed gave them the idea in the first place. It sure was not Christians, Jews, or any of the other main religions.

It was Muslim(s)!

Maybe it was not organized directly by the leaders (?or was it?) but somewhere someone related to the religion had a hand in it and therefor the leaders MUST take responsibility to prevent further actions of this nature (unless they passively / covertly agree) and just let things of this nature occur without taking any responsibility.

Don't forget it took Moses 40 years of wandering in the desert to eliminate the slave mentality of the Hebrews who escaped Pharaoh. Here in the USA, it's a bit overdue though.

American jews are in the tank for Obomba and they're not just turning the other cheek, they're completely overlooking islam as a serious threat to their existance.

There's certainly something radically wrong with how American jews look at the current political and terrorist threats to their short-term future.
