In regards to the “Origins of Modern Zionism” by Jack Manuelian wherein he documented that “Modern Zionism” is composed of both Islamic and Catholic leaders – this new statement by New York “Rabbis” is now understandable. Keep also in mind that the “Brotherhood of Islam” is radical Shiite and is the moving force behind the latest violence in Egypt!!
Reform Jewish Movement Welcomes Approval of Cordoba House Mosque and Community Center
Yoffie and Saperstein: “The principle of religious freedom on which the United States was founded has demonstrated that our nation is strengthened by the faith of its citizens and the houses of worship in which they gather.”
NEW YORK, August 4, 2010 – In response to the New York City Landmarks Preservation Committee’s unanimous vote allowing the building of the Cordoba House mosque and community center, Rabbi Eric Yoffie, President of the Union for Reform Judaism, and Rabbi David Saperstein, Director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, issued the following statement:
We welcome the planned construction of the Cordoba House mosque and community center in Lower Manhattan. Although we fully recognize the strong sentiments that have characterized the debate over the center, we strongly believe that Cordoba House’s presence will reflect our nation’s historic commitment to religious liberty. After consulting with rabbinic and lay leaders of our New York area synagogues we express our belief that the decision to allow the Cordoba House to move forward best embodies our values and the interests of the New York community. We affirm our abiding commitment to the principle of religious freedom that ensures that houses of worship not be subject to discrimination and to the principle of religious equality that ensures the right of the Muslim community to locate and build its houses of worship like Jewish, Christian or other houses of worship. We hope that our congregations will work with the leadership of the center on issues of common importance.
We commend Mayor Bloomberg, who has always supported the rights of the Jewish community as he has those of all religious communities, for advocating the position that the New York community will be enriched by this Center and for his view that New York should not embody in its actions any form of religious intolerance or discrimination. We commend as well the decision yesterday of the Landmarks Preservation Committee paving the way for construction.
The principle of religious freedom on which the United States was founded has demonstrated that our nation is strengthened by the faith of its citizens and the houses of worship in which they gather. The Cordoba House will now join the countless churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples that populate our landscape and enrich the spiritual lives of their congregants.

Park51 – Letter of Support to President Obama from Rabbi Burt Visotzky
Aug 16, 2010
Dear President Obama,
I write to thank you for your support of the plans for the Park51 Islamic Cultural Center in Lower Manhattan and of religious freedom for all Americans. I know I speak for many, many Jewish leaders when I express my thanks for your support of Park51. I have worked with Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and with Daisy Khan. I appreciate their commitment to interreligious dialogue and so, have been outspoken in my support for them. I can think of no better memorial to the Americans who gave their lives on Sept. 11, 2001, than a place of prayer, contemplation, and communal engagement.
I also deeply appreciate your standing up for our freedom of religion. It is not sufficient to assert the right to build; only the free exercise of that right is a guarantee of religious freedom. I am distressed at those who would divide America and use hatred of other Americans as a political tool. I applaud your courage at speaking out on this issue. We consider support of Park51 essential to the rights of religious expression for the Jewish community, as well.
My best wishes to you, in the hopes that you continue to serve America in helping ALL of our citizens achieve their basic rights such as healthcare, economic wellbeing, and freedom of expression and religion.

And finally – this ties much together:
The Muslim Brotherhood’s Shiite Branch
by Ryan Mauro
Mark Hass, the Director of EducateUSA.com, has sent me an email with a document obtained by the Investigative Project on Terrorism about the Muslim Students’ Association’s Persian Speaking Group, which has ties to the Iranian regime.
This is important because CAIR has begun receiving money from Iran, and despite the ferociously anti-Shiite line of Sheikh al-Qaradawi and other Brotherhood leaders, there are ties with Shiite extremists in the West.
The document is from the FBI and it talks about how the Islamic Society of North America’s 23rd and 24th Annual Conferences “provided opportunities for the extreme fundamentalist Muslims to meet with their supporters,” which included radical black Muslims and Iranians from the Persian Speaking Group.
The PSG handed out material with quotes from Ayatollah Khomeini and talking about the Islamic Revolution.
The FBI document also contains this line:
“The annual conferences are used for both religious and political purposes.
The political purpose is to further the Islamic Revolution, which includes the providing of anti-U.S. and Israel publications, and publications that support the war effort of Iran in the Iran-Iraq war and the Persian Gulf.”
In this light, now consider today’s AP Story on Egypt in the SL Tribune Newspaper:
Egyptian reform leader demands Mubarak resign
By HAMZA HENDAWI
and MAGGIE MICHAEL
The Associated Press

Cairo • Egypt’s most prominent democracy advocate took up a bullhorn Sunday and called for President Hosni Mubarak to resign, speaking to thousands of protesters who defied a curfew for a third night. Fighter jets streaked low overhead and police returned to the capital’s streets — high-profile displays of authority over a situation spiraling out of control.
Nobel Peace laureate Mohamed ElBaradei’s appearance in Tahrir, or Liberation, Square underscored the jockeying for leadership of the mass protest movement that erupted seemingly out of nowhere in the past week to shake the Arab world’s most populous nation.
Now in their sixth day, the protests have come to be centered in the square, where demonstrators have camped since Friday. Up to 10,000 protesters gathered there Sunday, and even after the 4 p.m. curfew, they numbered in the thousands, including families with young children, addressing Mubarak with their chants of “Leave, leave, leave.”
“You are the owners of this revolution. You are the future,” ElBaradei told the crowd after nightfall. “Our essential demand is the departure of the regime and the beginning of a new Egypt in which every Egyptian lives in virtue, freedom and dignity.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his Cabinet that he was “anxiously following” the crisis, saying Israel’s three-decade-old peace agreement with Egypt must be preserved.
Protesters have shrugged off Mubarak’s gestures of reform, including the sacking of his Cabinet and the appointment of a vice president and a new prime minister — both seen as figures from the heart of his regime.
ElBaradei, the former head of the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency, has gained a following among young secular democracy activists with his grassroots organizing. But some demonstrators dismiss him as an expatriate long removed from Egypt’s problems.
“Many people feel he loves prizes and traveling abroad,” said Muhammad Munir, 27. “He’s not really one of the people.”
The outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, which wants to establish an Islamist state in Egypt, has made some statements that it was willing to let ElBaradei act as point man for the movement. But it also appeared to be moving for a more prominent role after lying low when the protests first erupted.
On Sunday evening, the presence of overtly pious Muslims in the square was conspicuous, suggesting a significant Brotherhood representation. Hundreds performed the sunset prayers. Veiled women prayed separately.
A senior Brotherhood leader, Essam el-Erian, told The Associated Press he was heading to Tahrir Square to meet with other opposition leaders. El-Erian told an Egyptian TV station that the Brotherhood is ready to contact the army for a dialogue, calling the military “the protector of the nation.”
THE OBVIOUS QUESTION: HOW CAN JEWISH RABBIS BE SO TOLERANT AND SUPPORTIVE OF THEIR SUPPOSED IDEOLOGICAL ENEMIES??? This can best be answered by the facts outlined in “The Origins of Modern Zionism”, by Jack Manueliean. Simply, they are controlled by the same Luciferian leaders at the top!!
