OPEN SEASON ON EVERY RELIGION BUT ONE By Harmony Grant
In a nation of broken taboos—where a Brooklyn artist can display a crucifix in urine and Madonna can rock out while hanging from a cross—only one religion, Judaism, enjoys virtual immunity from criticism. Those who dare break the silence are punished with social and political ruin, tarred as “anti-Semites,” sinners of the worst stripe.
Think I exaggerate? Just take a moment to sample the scorching critiques leveled by national public figures against Islam and especially Christianity. For starters, listen to Anti-Defamation League head Abe Foxman. If you think Jews aren’t uniquely sheltered, imagine if he were talking about them.
“They are a well-funded, well-organized facet,” he intoned, “engaged in an aggressive campaign to transform America into a theocracy ruled by their warped view of biblical law.”
Foxman was talking about Christians or, in his words, “Christian Supremacists.” This was a warm-up for his lecture on Muslim extremists, another group of scary, religious radicals Foxman said also seek global dominion. The ADL head bragged that in 2006 more than 21 books or national articles were written about the threat of politically active Christians. First on his list was Michelle Goldberg’s Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism, which accuses Christians of “dominion theology.”
Rabbi Daniel Lapin of Toward Tradition says, “there are more of these books for sale at your local large book store warning against the perils of fervent Christianity than those warning against the perils of fervent Islam.” (“A Rabbi’s Warning to US Christians,” January 13, 2007) He comments that a recent Andrew Goldberg documentary, "Anti-Semitism in the 21st Century: The Resurgence," did more bashing of Christians than defending of Jews. Lapin, with Rabbi Weiss of Neturei Karta, represents an important minority of Talmudic Jews who do not share the aggressive anti-Christianity
of ADL and Abe Foxman. >--More--->
