Yoffie 'Mosquerading' as a Rabbi

Reform Leader Compares Jewish, Muslim ‘Extremists’

(IsraelNN.com) Eric Yoffi, the head of the Reform movement, compared Jewish and Muslim ‘fanatics’ on Friday in a speech given to members of the Islamic Society of North America. Both religions have a “tiny, extremist minority” that uses violence, he said, and a moderate majority. Moderate Jews and Muslims have a “collective task” to fight fanatics, he said.

Similar arguments made recently in a CNN special caused anger among many Jewish groups, who argued that there is “no counterpart among Jews and Christians to the violent jihadist Muslim campaigns underway across the globe.” Jewish violence was limited to a handful of incidents over the course of the past three decades, members of CAMERA pointed out.

Yoffi also told the group that American Jews and Muslims should work together to pressure the US government to make peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The Reform movement supports giving Judea and Samaria to the PA, he said, as does the Islamic Society. The groups should “join together and send a message of peace,” he said.

Rightfully, INN refuses to give Yoffie the title Rabbi. They could use the title apikoris and it would be an accurate statement. I am not sure there is any more to say about Yoffie than I have already said

To understand Yoffie's position on Israel you need only understand his one fundamental point, "its the settler's fault".

What Words Offend Arabs? The Truth.

Children's Poetry Booklet Recalled After Arabs Complain
(Israeli censorship kowtows to Arabs.
When Will We Tell The Truth Without Fear)

(IsraelNN.com 7 Sivan 5768/June 10, '08) Ynet's web site and Arab complaints against a ten-year-old boy's poem about terrorists has resulted in the recall of all of the Nes Ziona municipality's children's poetry booklets.

Ynet boasts that its coverage of the poem resulted in its being recalled.

The text of the poem (Ynet's translation):

Ahmed's bunker has surprises galore: Grenades, rifles are hung on the wall. Ahmed is planning another bombing!What a bunker Ahmed has, who causes daily harm.Ahmed knows how to make a bomb. Ahmed is Ahmed, that's who he is, so don't forget to be careful of him.We get blasted while they have a blast!Ahmed and his friends could be wealthy and sunny, if only they wouldn't buy rockets with all their money.

Poetry competition director Marika Berkowitz, who published the booklet, was surprised at the protests and told Ynet: "This is the boy's creation and this is what he wanted to express. Of course there should be a limit, but I think the there is no racism here. 'Ahmed' is a general term for the enemy. These are the murmurings of an innocent child."

The Education Ministry told Ynet: "The local authority that published the booklet should have guided the students in a more correct manner through the schools. The district will investigate the issue with the local authorities."
