What is the difference between Muslim support organizations and Jewish ones? Easy…the Muslim ones are focused unhesitatingly on backing issues benefiting their religion, way of life and their goal of creating a worldwide Islamic order, or Caliphate. Jewish groups are not necessarily concerned with Jewish causes which seem to be secondary to acting as civil rights groups for all. The best way to describe them is as Jewish funded ACLUs. We would not want them in our foxhole.
Would such Muslim groups as the Council on Arab American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim Students Organization (MSO) or the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) ever speak out in favor of Israeli self defense retaliation against Hamas’ murderous attacks against the Jewish State? Would any of these organizations ever support the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city? Would any of them ever denounce the hateful rhetoric of their religious leaders calling for the destruction of Israel? How about their putting thumbs down on the Nation of Islam’s leader, Louis Farrakhan’s demonic denunciation of Judaism? Have they called to task Iran’s threats to turn Israel and its citizens, both Jewish and Muslim, into nuclear dust? Never in a million years! They are staunch Islamists who never give an inch in standing strong with Islamists. They have loyalty to their cause.
So now let’s focus on Jewish groups funded with Jewish money. The American Jewish Committee (AJC) has recently joined with The Islamic Society of North America to form a Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council. Stanley Bergman, the Jewish Co-Chair of the new group describes its purpose: “Our two communities share much in common and should find ways, where possible, to work together for the benefit of the entire country.”
Is he and the rest of the leadership of the AJC delusional? Just what do American Jews have in common with Muslims or ISNA, a Muslim Brotherhood offshoot that was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial for aiding Hamas? This group has a history of associations with the likes of Sami Al-Arian, who was convicted of funding terror within Israel and Linda Sarsour, the explosive, vehemently outspoken anti-Israel Muslim who leads American women by their noses in marches for of all things, “women’s freedoms.” She was the keynote speaker at a major ISNA function last year where she called for “jihad” against President Trump. Many of the Muslim “heavy hitters” on this new council are associated with terror supporting groups. And they will be concerned about Jewish issues??
We Jews must be ever watchful and cautious about what groups we should support. Sadly, many of our Shomrim (defender) organizations have lost sight of the ever increasing threats to our safety. And Muslim groups, especially ones who have supported terror against Israel should be avoided like the plagues they represent.
