We’ve written before about the visionary Rabbi Chaim Richman, international director of the Temple Institute, and the Institute’s great works. In the hours and days following the murder of the Fogel family in Itamar, Rabbi Richman posted several breaking news items about it on his Facebook page. Yesterday he broadcast an exceptionally insightful and poignant episode of his weekly “Temple Talk” show, on Israel National Radio. yesterday. Commenting to his distinguished co-host, Yitzchak Reuven at 36:14 of the broadcast, Rabbi Richman noted:
“What happened in Itamar, to call them animals is not productive…Here, I’ll talk like the leftists talk: ‘Palestinians that were created in God’s image came and massacred babies.’ My point is, if you think that this was an isolated incident, if you think that these were lone wolves that acted, or even if you think that this is a product of the incitement by the P.A., all of those are not answers, all of those are inaccurate and insufficient. No, no, no, that’s not the point. The point is: this is exactly what is the spirit and the essence of Islam. And we know that very, very well.”
Thank you and well said, Rabbi.
Where are the rabbis in America willing to point out the problems in the Islamic ideology? Where have they been since 2001? Too busy sitting down with glaring imams at mutual respect events at the synagogue? Or raising money for Barack Haman Obama?
