Eric Yoffe can be a little too considerate

Reader comment on item: America's Crash Course on Islam

Submitted by Ken Besig (Israel), Sep 11, 2007 at 13:39

Eric Yoffe, the Reform Jewish leader, can and often is just a little too considerate regarding his and the Jewish Peoples' enemies. And far too often, he is vile and bitter to the extreme regarding those Jews who find his movement to be a little too liberal.

Unfortunately in this case, Rabbi Yoffe is either being deliberately obtuse, politically correct, polite, or is simply an ingnoramus. Certainly he knows quite well the murderous attitude of the fundamentalist Islamists towards our People, and how terribly often these attitudes have been translated into the actual murder of Jews. Thus instead of demanding that moderate Moslems forcibly reject and expel the real and dangerous extremists among them, he as Dr. Pipes points out, blames himself and his own People for causing Moslems to hate us.

Frankly I am happy that Dr. Pipes had the courage to publicly expose Rabbi Yoffe and the utterly absurd remarks the Rabbi made. With more exposure like this, the Reform movement he leads may choose to find another leader, or better yet, Rabbi Yoffe will see just how unlikely his position is and make an effort to become either more honest or better informed.

Shana Tova!
