Earlier this month I posted that World boxing champion Muhammad Ali family invited Rabbi Michael Lerner to speak at Ali’s funeral. Learning from pro-Palestine British Jewish writer Paul Eisen, who equated Rabbi Learner with a Snake-oil Doctor, I didn’t bother to follow Rabbi Lerner’s speech.
I have listened to Rabbi Lerner’s views about Muslims and Islam delivered during a radio debate with Gilad Atzmon on February 27, 2012 (below).
However, Israel-British author Gilad Atzmon didn’t like some of the Jewish propaganda the good rabbi dished out during his speech at the funeral. On June 13, Atzmon posted his comments on Rabbi Lerner’s Jewish propaganda while calling him Master of Deceit.
Naturally, as a typical ‘closet Zionist’, Rabbi Lerner couldn’t face the truth and e-mailed to Gilad Atzmon: Wake up, asshole – you’re spreading lies and deceit about me.
Atzmon claims that he asked the Rabbi for permission to reprint his entire e-mail to him but for the obvious reason the rabbi who claims to ‘represent American Jews’ kept silent.
Here is Atzmon’s response to Rabbi Lerner’s e-mail:
Why is it that American people don’t hear rabbis supporting Palestinian freedom or universal human rights? Because Rabbis don’t support Palestinian freedom. Rabbis do care about one thing: the rights of their chosen tribe. It’s odd, the Rabbi who claimed to “represent American Jews” admitted in his e-mail that the message he delivered at Muhammad Ali’s funeral contradicts what most rabbis believe. The Rabbi was deliberately misrepresenting American Jews. He stood before the nation and lied about Jews, Judaism and Jewishness. I guess that in the Rabbi’s eyes, lying for the cause is a kosher procedure.
I believe that Rabbi Michael Lerner is a precious human being. He is the ultimate epitome of the Jewish solidarity spin. He provides us a definitive glimpse into the Jewish controlled opposition.
I want to believe that by now most intelligent people are aware of Israeli criminality and the domination by the Jewish oligarchy of Western political lobbying, finance and media. The so-called ‘progressive’ rabbi serves the function of portraying the image of a ‘good Jew.’ His calling is to divert attention from the real problems.
If the Rabbi really wants to perform genuine good deeds, he should first learn to watch his lingo but more importantly he must make a serious and genuine attempt to tell the truth. Instead of diverting attention from the ‘J’ word, he should address publicly what Jewishness and Judaism mean for most Jews.
I hope the ‘closet Zionists’ at the Jews Sans Frontiers wouldn’t call me a ‘bad Muslim’ for defending Gilad Atzmon as they did a few years ago.
