Maine rabbis deplore mosque desecration (Morning Sentinel)
We, the undersigned rabbis of Maine, would like to register our collective anger, disappointment and disgust at the desecration of a mosque in Portland by unknown persons in the wake of the death of Osama bin Laden.
Churches are offering use of their churches to Muslim congregations. Apparently, some Jews are doing the same thing in their synagogues. Can everyone say, cutting your throat to spite your face?
We are committed to establishing peaceful relations among all faith groups in Maine and to end the kind of racial, religious and ethnic stereotyping from which we as Jews have suffered in many lands and in many time periods.
Hmm, perhaps you are ‘committed’ because you are clueless, folks. Islam still wants you dead or forcibly converted. Â And Muslims are not suffering Joooozzzz….
In all our synagogues recently, we read the following from the book of Leviticus 19:32-34 “When a stranger resides with you in your land, you shall not wrong him. The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as one of your citizens; you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.”
As we hold this teaching, we stand in solidarity with our Muslim neighbors.
We hope that the 10th anniversary of the events of Sept. 11, 2001, will usher in a new era of interaction, dialogue and understanding among Jews, Christians, Muslims and all other religious groups in Maine.
