Be careful about listening to 'rabbis'

At The American Thinker, Peggy Shapiro discusses an email she received from a 'rabbi Wolf' who is apparently a neighbor and friend of Barack Hussein Obama.
Rabbi Wolf magnanimously asks us not to tarnish Obama's image with those of his closest advisors and guides. What would Rabbi Wolf have said of a close associate of Goebbels? We can't judge him by the company he keeps? If Obama felt comfortable in Wright's church for over twenty years, then the minister's message did not hit the same raw nerve that it hit for many of us. If Obama admired the man who posted anti-Semitic messages on his church website, who promoted the Hamas view of the Middle East, and who traveled to Libya with Farrakhan, then Obama either shares some of his vision or has extremely bad judgment. Neither trait bodes well for his job as president. Wolf conveniently omits a series of Obama advisors whose stands on Israel should make us shudder. I am afraid that it's thinking like Wolf that can defeat us.

"Some want him to fall in line behind the intransigent, conservative thinking that has silenced Jewish debate on Israeli policy and enabled the Bush Administration's criminal neglect of the diplomatic process."

Now we get to the Rabbi's agenda. When the U.N., the E.U., nine Arab nations, Hamas, and Hezbollah are assaulting Israel with missiles and propaganda, the Rabbi feels that it is unfortunate that the U.S. doesn't join in the chorus of Israel detractors. The poor Rabbi worries that Israel does not have enough critics and wants to make sure that there is one in the White House.

"...race plays a key role in the hesitation to support the Obama candidacy. "

Let's ignore the fact that Jewish supporters helped give Obama a start on the political scene and that Jews tend to be among the most liberal voters. Now that Israel is fair game, why not accuse Jews of racism when they have real concerns about a candidates experience and associates?
Unfortunately, 'rabbi' Wolf's thinking is all too typical of a large portion of Jewry today that has replaced Judaism with Liberalism as their religion. That's why 61% of American Jews plan to vote for Barack Hussein Obama. I wonder how many of them will identify themselves as Jews a generation from now.

But Ed Lasky exposes the mysterious 'rabbi Wolf's identity:
Rabbi Arnold Jacob Wolf is also a Reform rabbi who was one of the earliest Jewish advocates for "dialogue" with the PLO (he himself met with the PLO back in the 1970's) and was a founding member of Breira, a short-lived organization whose only purpose was to urge Israel to give into Arab pressure and give up land for peace. We all know how that worked out.

Rabbi Wolf is also a member of the Rabbinic Cabinet of Brit Tzedek v'Shalom, the Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace whose entire mission "is to educate and mobilize American Jews in support of a negotiated two-state resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict." I urge you to check out their truly sickening agenda

Rabbi Wolf thinks Obama would be good for Israel, and that he is a friend of the Jews. In fact, if he has any criticism of Obama at all, it's that he's not radical enough in demanding Israel make "painful concessions."

Its the attempt to curry favor with the non-Jewish world by dropping Jewish practices and rejecting tradition that earned Reform Orthodox enmity. Once you begin to change a little here and little there, soon you lose sight of what it means to be a Jew and that's why most American Jews have no problem with the fact Obama has anti-Israel foreign policy advisers or surrounds himself with repellent characters. What matters is not his friends but his liberalism. That's enough to make him kosher in the eyes of the Jewish Left in America.
