Think I Don't Know People?

Synagogues Getting Hate Emails

I just heard on our local station that, the Rabbi that was going to file the lawsuit over no menorahs at SeaTac, is withdrawing his lawsuit. Synagogues all over the county are getting hate emails and death threats. Police have suggested having armed guards at Hanukkah services.

I told you they'd blame the Jews. I guess nobody's gonna sing Kumbaya afterall... you know the dreidel song is out...

Probably some libby reporter who wanted to put the onus on them--and NOT the port authority...

Yes, what the Rabbi's are saying in the longer LOCAL radio shows etc. and news broadcasts is quite different than what's got hysterically bandied about by the MSM. That's why I wanted to put up so much about it.

This kind of stuff puts me in a tough spot. Personally I DESPISE someone who uses lawsuits to impose minority views on the majority. It drives me half nuts when the ACLU or some hysterical atheist sues to eliminate Christianity from the public arena. That's not what happened here, but it happens often enough.

When Jews do it, it also is deeply shameful and makes me want to hunt the sob down and teach him a lesson for the damage he or she does to Jewish-Christian relations. Funny thing is, I've NEVER met a Jew who revels in this sort of domestic terrorism. My Jewish friends are ALL embarrassed by this kind of nonsense.
Thanks DONAL for your efforts.

I'm not going to defend anyone who sends hate e-mail but I think there is a growing frustration among some Christians that they CANNOT practice their religion in this country without being questioned on every aspect of the law. This is a case in point and I, perhaps alone here, blame the Rabbi for some of what followed.

The Rabbi, in this case, had to know the threat of a lawsuit was going to elicit a strong reaction from the airport. Who can blame the airport for yanking any and all displays rather than have to get into the expense of refereeing the proper display of any and all religious symbols? Someone will get offended, no matter what nor how minor the transgression, and will sue. The ACLU and others would get involved and next thing you know the airport would be paying millions in settlements ... for what? Over a tree display, for God's sake. Need I remind others that a tree display is NOT a symbol of Christianity but the incorporation of a Germanic pagan symbol into the season.

May I ask this question: why couldn't the Rabbi, in the spirit of a democratic nation, have simply requested that the airport also display the Jewish symbol for the season since this time of year is ALSO a Jewish holiday season?

I think the airport would've accomodated him and I don't think any (sane) Christian could've found that as an excuse to get po'ed.

But that's not the route he chose. He went from zero to SUE! in no seconds flat. How is that helping in the current environment we find ourselves in???

If any and all displays of religious symbols are going to be offensive, there are some Jewish sects that are headed for trouble because they WEAR their religious symbology.

If more reasonable voices do not prevail in this Jew-vs-Christian thing, it is simply going to get worse over time. Does any Christian here find Jewish holiday decorations in the least offensive???

Big Correction.

From Atlas Shrugs, Pamela has written a blog exposing the media slime of an innocent Rabbi. The Rabbi is not guilty of anything, this was a faux story cooked up by the news media.

You can read her article

The Rabbi did not threaten to sue. O'Reilly appears to have uncovered this, as well, although I did not see O'Reilly's program tonight. He simply suggested a menorah would more accurately reflect the season which is absolutely true. He did not threaten the airport authority in any way yet the airport decided to take down the tree display rather than put a menorah in with the tree display. If I'm reading this right, it was an airport spokesperson who claimed the airport had been threatened with a lawsuit, which was a lie.

Atlas Shrugs is not one to mince words and I quote her here:

>> Thank the jihad media once again for stirring the pot and putting its leftarded slant (with a healthy dose of Jew hatred) on an otherwise innocuous story. The jihad media claimed the beleagured Rabbi was going to sue the Seattle airport to remove the trees if they didn't display a menorah. Blackmail! Of course the Rabbi could not refute the lies because the story broke on Friday night into Saturday ...... you know the deal. Shabbat.<<

Well, we all know who uses even innocent requests and comments, twists and perverts them beyond what was ever said. He uses innuendo, switched words, misinterpretation, and implication to further his cause, which is divide and conquer! Jews and Christians standing together have a chance to stem the tide of evil, "he" doesn't want his plans scattered, which will happen ifwe are discerning and make common cause!
Give me the WHOLE Truth and quit the lies!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

PS I would have LOVED IT if the Sea-Tac people had called his bluff and said "sue me you SOB."
I think people whose first dialogue is the threat of a lawsuit should be confronted and countersued if they're in the wrong. It's not ideal behavior, but it's far better than the cave job done by SeaTac.

I usually trust FoxNews but unfortunately they are still reporting that the Rabbi threatened to sue.

According to some pundits, however, that is false.

Who is right?

That was the key issue with me -- if the Rabbi threatened to sue then he was simply doing the same thing the so-called seven imams did with US Airways.

Not a good way to engender friends in the Christmas bunch.

To equate the Rabbi who may or may not have threatened a lawsuit with a handful of imams scaring the piss out of a planeload of passengers is mistaken. One is infuriating, the other is possibly life threatening in a big way! C'mon.

I wonder about the reaction when Muslims begin threatening to sue over Jewish religious displays.

5:42 AM  
Blogger JINGOIST said...

They already do. I forget the exact story, but it seems I read about CAIR pulling that type of nonsense around 5 mos. ago.

My opinion, Jewish and Christian displays should be allowed, not by some statute, but let common sense prevail.

The Muslim and Kwaaaaaaaza crap should NOT be allowed by decent people because they are inherently anti-American. Gangsters founded both of those.

Let me elaborate. Muhammed was a thug, period. A known criminal started Kwaaaaaanza. These guys are a tad bit different than the Patriarchs & Jesus.

Just look at the idiotic assault on Dennis Prager. What he said was absolutely on the mark and cannot be considered an aggregious assault on Islam in any way, shape or form.

Yet, he's being tarred and feathered over a statement that is pure common sense.

If I sound like a Dennis Prager fan, it's because I am. It's true he is direct in his challenges but the man is an icon of civilized discourse.

Yet, others are trying to paint him as a bigot or worse.

My apologies for getting long-winded at your blog, Donal. I shall now cease further bloviating :D

On this topic, anyway.

If they find the person making the threats they should make them read Tikkun magazine for a year. Reading Faux Rabbi Lerners writtings is a serious punishment almost as bad as reading My Life.

Beaker that was great! LOL! Hey I took the day off for taking care of Hannukah and Christmas cards and all the gifts for a HUUUUUGE family. I'll probably end up regretting it. :-) I'm gonna darken your doorstep today sometime if that's ok.

PRAIRIESON--I love when folks come to my house, so you just keep writing here!

The reason I brought up the whole issue was because what goes on here locally was not being reflected in the media accurately--and I knew it would be pinned on the Jews somehow (we've had a lot of anti-Semitism here from these 'tolerant', 'loving' libbies. 'We Are the World' only goes so far here...)

No, Jingo, I agree; what the Rabbi did wasn't all that helpful, but the authorities have just been stupid about it, too. I'll go read if he really threatened to sue or not--the media has been irresponsible in framing the issue.

the media put their lies and spin on this story and now the Rabbi and his family must suffer..sickening!

btw...why couldn't the Rabbi, in the spirit of a democratic nation, have simply requested that the airport also display the Jewish symbol for the season since this time of year is ALSO a Jewish holiday season?..the RABBI did do that and the airport took 2 months to do nothing!

WOT--I don't get it either. It's not like Hanukkah is celebrated in June or something!
