The Jewish billionaire New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg rocked the Zionist boat on Wednesday. While addressing a gathering of Muslim and community leaders at Ramadan conference at Police Headquarters at Manhattan – Bloomberg greeted the audience with ‘Shalom alaikum’ instead of traditional Muslim greeting ‘Salaam aliakum‘ in Arabic, meaning ‘Peace upon you’.
The annual Islamic month of fasting (Ramadan) starts coming Monday. During this month, the great majority of 1.7 billion Muslims around the world will abstain from consuming food and having sexual relationship – from dawn to dust while performing additional prayers and giving more charity.
Omar Abunamous, the prayer leader at Islamic Cultural Center of New York, tried to cover up Mayor’s verbal jujitsu, by saying: “Well, it’s common to both religions. They are the same thing. The same idea.”
Now, had Omar listened to Israel-born Gilad Atzmon what Zionist Jews really mean when they greet Goyim with ‘Shalom aleichem’ in Hebrew – he would not have said what was reported.
In May 2011 – Gilad Atzmon told his audience at London panel on Jewishness and Israeli Criminality:
“Like the Muslims, we have ‘Salaam‘ as a greeting, the Jews greet each other with Shalom – also a greeting of peace. However, Shalom doesn’t mean peace though. It means security. For Jews. That peace, (it means) peace for them only”.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg (born 1942) is 13th richest person in the US. He has been Mayor of City of New York since 2001.
The last time Mayor Bloomberg kicked Israel Lobby’s bucket – was when he threw his support behind Cordoba House (not a mosque) near the so-called ‘Ground Zero’.
“If somebody wants to build a religious house of worship, they should do it and we shouldn’t be in the business of picking which religions can and which religions can’t. I think it’s fair to say if somebody was going to try to on that piece of property build a church or a synagogue, nobody would be yelling and screaming. And the fact of the matter is that Muslims have a right to do it too. What is great about America and particularly New York is we welcome everybody and I just- you know, if we are so afraid of something like this, what does it say about us? Democracy is stronger than this. You know, the ability to practice your religion is the- was one of the real reasons America was founded. And for us to say no is just, I think, not appropriate is a nice way to phrase it”.
