Rosh Hashanna Sermon

Read the whole thing - and know why some are yelling into the blogosphere.  We who are expressing our concern are trying to prevent a wholesale slaughter.


Those who want a "two-state solution" are either liars, or the most foolish of fools; if that is imposed on Israel, Jews will be annihilated.  They will be murdered, with the sanction of the pro-Palestinian fools.  I call them "fools", because relatively few understand the depth of the Jew-hatred - NOT "anti-Zionism" - it's JEW-hatred felt by the Islamists of the Middle East, and now, Europe and the US.
We are at war. We are at war with an enemy as savage, as voracious, as heartless as the Nazis but one wouldn’t know it from our behavior. During WWII we didn’t refer to storm troopers as freedom fighters. We didn’t call the Gestapo, militants. We didn’t see the attacks on our Merchant Marine as acts by rogue sailors. We did not justify the Nazis rise to power as our fault. We did not grovel before the Nazis, thumping our hearts and confessing to abusing and mistreating and humiliating the German people. We did not apologize for Dresden, nor for The Battle of the Bulge, nor for El Alamein, nor for D-Day.
"War"?  Against all Muslim people?


No.


I have no bone of bigotry in my body, but what I do have is hatred for those who hate, intolerance for those who are intolerant, and a guiltless, unstoppable obsession to see evil eradicated.
Today the enemy is radical Islam but it must be said sadly and reluctantly that there are unwitting, co-conspirators who strengthen the hands of the evil doers. Let me state that the overwhelming number of Muslims are good Muslims, fine human beings who want nothing more than a Jeep Cherokee in their driveway, a flat screen TV on their wall and a good education for their children, but these good Muslims have an obligation to destiny, to decency that thus far for the most part they have avoided. The Kulturkampf is not only external but internal as well. The good Muslims must sponsor rallies in Times Square, in Trafalgar Square, in the UN Plaza, on the Champs Elysee, in Mecca condemning terrorism, denouncing unequivocally the slaughter of the innocent. Thus far, they have not. The good Muslims must place ads in the NY Times. They must buy time on network TV, on cable stations, in the Jerusalem Post, in Le Monde, in Al Watan, on Al Jazeera condemning terrorism, denouncing unequivocally the slaughter of the innocent – thus far, they have not. Their silence allows the vicious to tarnish Islam and define it.

Brutal acts of commission and yawning acts of omission both strengthen the hand of the devil. 
I'm Catholic; I understand about sins of omission.  Failing to act, when your action could save a life, is being an accomplice to murder.


I'm old enough to have known survivors of the concentration camps.  You only once have to see that blue tattoo with the diamond to imprint the horror on your mind - think of "bar codes" for the people who have been reduced to "things".  I will NOT acquiesce in the killing of Jews, even at the cost of war.


Never again.
