Ironic Unity

Ironic Unity

The front page of the June 17 issue had two very timely articles. Nathan Jeffay (“Tel Aviv And Orlando: Tied By Terror”) made the connection between the terror attack by two Palestinians in Tel Aviv and the terror attack in Orlando (where the terrorist declared his allegiance to ISIS). The report by Hannah Dreyfus (“LGBT Leaders Here Mixing Sorrow With Action”) described the LGBT community’s reaction to the Orlando attack and quotes Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum that the clergy were all united “to reject any anti-Muslim energy coming out of this.”

How ironic.

Why can’t we all be united in understanding that, despite the fact that most Muslims are not terrorists, almost all terrorists are radical Muslims?

All the clergy should unite to declare that radical Islam represents terrorism and is evil. It would be an especially fresh change to hear the moderate Muslim clergy condemn radical Islam.
