Those vile anti-Zionist activists - inside problems if you'll call them that - have made their next stop in Lebanon
Prayers were held for the first time in decades Monday at a synagogue in Sidon, Lebanon, as American anti-Zionist rabbis visited the site 30 years after the city’s last Jews left.
Two rabbis from the Natorei Karta movement toured the building – once Sidon’s main synagogue – in the area still known as the southern coastal city’s “Jewish quarter.” The building, which still bears Star of David motifs and Hebrew inscriptions, now houses Palestinian refugees from the 1967 Six Day War and their descendants.
The rabbis wore Arab keffiyehs around their necks, and badges on their chest reading in English and Arabic, “A Jew, not a Zionist.”
Beirut’s Daily Star newspaper reported the rabbis expressed hoped the current tenants would “soon return home,” and their pain at the “crimes and sufferings inflicted by the Zionist movement and Israel on Palestinians in and outside Palestine.”
Now that's certainly odd that this synagogue was allowed to stand erect, but then, it could easily be that the Islamists in that area turned it into a mosque. You can read the rest of the article to learn more about the history Jews once had in Lebanon up to 1982, but for now, here's one more thing that really disgusts me:
AFP reported that one of the rabbis visiting Sidon, Yisroel Dovid Weiss, spoke to his guests about the essential similarity between Judaism and Islam, and said members of both religions had lived together peacefully before the advent of the Zionist movement.
This offends me, because let us remember that one of the 10 Commandments is "Thou shalt not commit murder", something not supported in the Koran, and there's stuff like sea food on the halal menu that's not considered kosher on the kashrut menu. Nor is it mandatory for a woman, married or single, to wear a burka under Judaism, and it's considered especially abominable to attack one for not doing so. This is truly atrocious that the so-called rabbi is spouting such vile propaganda, to say nothing of spewing hatred for Zionists.
