Obama & PLO Issue State Instructions for Synagogue & Mosque Sermons

By Debbie Schlussel

The statist government of Barack Hussein Obama and the statist PLO/Fatah Palestinian “government” of Mahmoud Abbas a/k/a Abu Mazen have a lot in common.  Both have recently issued official state instructions to synagogues and mosques on what to tell their congregants.


This week, Abbas and his Palestinian Authority sent instructions to mosques to cheer after his speeches declaring the upcoming Palestinian state (see below), which should tell  you there isn’t a lot of support for him (most Palestinians prefer HAMAS).  And  Obama issued pro-Obama talking points to rabbis regarding what they should tell their congregants during the Jewish holidays in the next couple of weeks.

Mosques Told to Cheer After Abbas Speech

For religious Jews like me, our rabbis won’t be doin’ the Obama state-directed Jewish High Holidays propaganda.  Most Orthodox Jews voted Republican.  And so did the vast majority of our rabbis.  It’s the twice-a-year Jews, the Conservative and Reform Jews–who are mostly Jews In Name Only and are already huge liberals anyway (liberalism is their real religion, not Judaism–who will be treated to the Obama state-directed holiday propaganda and will be receptive to it, as they were in 2008 and will be again in 2012.

In any event, it’s hilarious but no surprise that the Jew-hating mosques and imams (repetitive descriptor in “Jew-hating”) and the Conservative and Reform Jewish rabbis are so similar that they are both engaging in the same statist propaganda. And that Obama and Abbas–the Munich Olympic paymaster for Arafat and an open Holocaust denier–have much in common is no surprise. We knew that. At least, those of us who didn’t vote for the former.

And, both sets of these institutions, Muslim and Jewish have another thing in common:  their hatred for Israel and Judaism.  The twice-a-year Jews just won’t cop to the charges.  Don’t forget Rabbi Joseph Krakoff, head of Shaarey Zedek synagogue (Detroit’s oldest synagogue), who opened his synagogue to HAMAS earlier this year and invited swastika-sign-wielding Muslims onto the synagogue’s lawn to protest in support of Hezbollah and HAMAS during the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah war. Krakoff has been to the Obama White House and was an intern in the Clinton White House (one thong away from Monica Lewinsky).

Happy Holidays, Rabbi Krackhead (as Jewish reader, Larry, aptly calls him).  May you be sealed in the book of HAMAS.

I agree with much of what you say. However, in NY most of the Jews including the heavy population of Orthodox and Hasidic vote overwhelmingly Democratic.

In suburban NY where I live the Hasidic community keeps a wretched Democrat in power who wastes taxpayer money.

Well, I’m what one would call a “reformed” Jew. I don’t keep Kosher or strictly observe the Sabbath. And neither was my Dad, a retired Navy captain & Vietnam vet, who’s now deceased. And I’m as politically conservative as it gets. I have no use for “Jews Against Zionism,” or “JStreet” or any OTHER regressive (they sure ain’t PROgressives) crap such as that. And I FULLY realize that regressivism/leftism has done more to kill Jews than almost ANYTHING else in the world. Except Islam.

Just thought y’all should know that there ARE conservative non Orthodox Jews out there. We’re as rare as snow in Death Valley, but it CAN happen.

    And you’re one of my favorite examples of it, Con. I hope your health and life are well, my friend and Landtzman.

    Debbie, this guy is as Conservative and Zionistic as it gets. I’ve read his stuff for a very long time.

      By the way, Obama can screw off before I will listen to him tell me how to pray or what to think. And even then, he can still stick his head up his ass before…

      Occam's Tool on September 23, 2011 at 2:12 pm

    Con Chef-

    I completely agree with you.
    I too am a politically conservative Jew who belongs to a reform Synagogue. I intermingle with Jews of all walks and to me a Jewish person is a Jewish person. I do not differentiate. To me that just splinters an already small population (Jews in general) into smaller weaker groups.
    Hence the enemy’s strategy of “divide and conquer”.
    Yes, there are a lot of liberal Jews out there although the term “liberal” today is a lot different than in the 60’s and 70’s and some “liberals” have not discovered this.
    I think there are a lot of Non-Orthodox Jews who are politically conservative. More than most of us realize.
    Our survival depends on it and protecting the State of Israel.

    Con Chief,

    After reading your comments, I have to say its nice to hear another jew, who is a conservative and stands behind Israel 100%. The liberal Jews are doing major damage to Israel. These are very difficult times we are facing as a nation and as a people. As you well know that the fool in the W.House is a believer in Muslim and is an anti semtic and anti Israel. We must be strong and stay strong. Happy New Year, G-d bless the USA and Israel …Semper fi.

    My best,

It’s true that some ultra-Orthodox/hassidic communities established a close relationship with Hillary Clinton, especially in response to the help she gave regarding some of the miscreants among them. But the general trend that the more Orthodox, the more conservative has been evident at least since the days of Nixon.

As to the traditional Syrian Jewish community, I doubt they’ve gone liberal. They’re a primarily merchant community, so the government does essentially nothing for them, but burdens them with taxes and regulations. They’d prefer the government stay out of their affairs. And as to the social needs of the community, they take care of their own and have never relied on government to do so.

I recently attended a Bar Mitzvah at a reform synagogue. They had a prayer for the US and a prayer for Israel, and then the rabbi announced a dinner fundraiser for J Street. Really nice people, but deeply confused, hopelessly confused.

A: For readers who don’t know, J Street is an anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, pro-Muslim organization funded by George Soros and run by anti-Semitic JINOs (Jews In Name Only). DS

adam on September 23, 2011 at 12:57 pm

    Adam, it is not sad anymore it is criminal of any Jew to support jstreet… so what did you do? did you get up and leave? did you give a lecture to the”rabbi” and”well meaning” congregation? what did you do to stop them? did you organize a protest on the night they were hosting jstreet? i sure as hell would! luckily (well by choice of course) we belong to a Chabad Shul, never any liberal craziness there, but i did cause a scene in a conservative synagogue once when Rabbi offered to pray for some muslims in need, that was a LOT of fun 🙂 we do not go there anymore 😉

“J Street is an anti-Israel, and anti-Semitic, pro-Muslim organization funded by George Soros and run by anti-Semitic JINOs”

Thanks for the heads up and the information Debbie. I’ve heard of “J-Street” in the past, but I was a little ignorant of who they really are.

Since that group was funded by George Soros, the Nazi-collaborator, I urge non-jews/gentiles (like myself) and jews alike to NOT support J-Street for their ultra-hatred for jews, and Israel and their love for islam!

    That’s also true of Mondoweiss. Do you think Jews who hate Israel and wish to see it destroyed identify as Jews in the full sense of the word? Jews who identify with Hezbollah and Hamas and who embrace jihad and seek Israel’s destruction are not Jews or friends of Israel. They are minim and enemies of the Jewish nation and should be treated accordingly.

    NormanF on September 23, 2011 at 6:22 pm

This is not new, although it is news that it is still being done. Early on in the Obama Administration, when its officials traveled to D.C.-area synagogues to expound on the Administration’s policies and answer questions, the answers clearly sounded like they came from a playbook, not a thought process. Very unlike Bush- or even Clinton-era officials.

In response to all questions the repeated reply is that Obama will keep Israel strong – i.e., the Obama strategy is to arm Israel to the teeth while working to demoralize it by encouraging greater enmity of its neighbors. It is a plan for more and greater and terrible wars, not peace.

Solomon2 on September 23, 2011 at 2:49 pm

The rabbi at the synagogue I attended was one bitchy overstuffed cow of a man(?), who spotted Obama’s dictated talking points almost word for word for the last two years.

Indeed, it seemed the synagogue (Temple Shalom of Chevy Chase) was more loyal and dedicated to the Democratic Party and Obama than it was to Judaism, America, or Israel.

Needless to say, we will not be returning there for the High Holy Days.

I am also sorry to say that many churches these days are no better, and are so far left that they are turning off mainstream Christians.

Jonathan E. Grant on September 23, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    That’s right Jon Grant. I USE to attend Roman Catholic services but I myself had a little walk-out because after months of listening to screaming kids, the Pastor said that he was not offended by the noise (I was…that is what FAMILY MASS is for (I was not at Family Mass) of the “little ones”.

    I sat there and thought, “Did he just say what I thought he said?” and walked out. I have not been back to church since. It’s very hard to find a SERIOUS Catholic Church. I am not sure I want to stay Catholic anyway. Liberalism has ruined my religious services too.

    The Pastor was soon removed due to “child sex abuse” claims. I have not found out if the claims were founded. I did tend to think they were NOT but who knows?

    J.E.G: After 20 years of Jeremiah Wright’s spiritual influence, Obama’s ecumenical council of Wright, Louis Farrakhan (Nation of Islam) and the addition of the Jewish arm, makes Mr Faulty look pathetic and in need of a laugh.

    The ‘shuffle along, schizophrenic’ nu-age tactics from the WH regarding FREEDOM seems to be taking over very quickly, always tucked away in the smallest of print.

    ‘President Obama’s American Job’s Act, which he presented to Congress on Monday, would make it illegal for employers to run advertisements saying that they will not consider unemployed workers, or to refuse to consider or hire people because they are unemployed.
    The proposed language is found in a section of the bill titled “Prohibition of Discrimination in Employment on the Basis of an Individual’s Status as Unemployed.” That section would also make it illegal for employers to request that employment agencies take into account a person’s unemployed status. It would also allow aggrieved job-seekers to seek damages if they have been discriminated against

    Who the hell would want to employ anyone, these days…..

    Some good news to-day is the article below. At long last, a judge who respects Freedom of Speech and a hat tip to him. Maybe the media can make a big deal of this, don’t hold your breath though.

The truth is as the Jewish Left has become anti-Israel and embraces jihad, Orthodox Judaism has been moving forward to reconciling with the Jewish State. It was different a century ago but the times have changed. Jews who are not Jewish first will never support Israel. That will become more evident in the years to come.

There will be no peace in the coming New Year. A happy and healthy L’Shana Tova to every one!

NormanF on September 23, 2011 at 6:17 pm

Debbie I bet 99.5% of the ‘rabbis’ using these Obama talking points are not Orthodox. In that case they aren’t real rabbis, their congregations aren’t real shuls, and what they say is by definition a bunch of crap. Also please send me your text # so we can have more satisfying political intercourse.

PM Netanyahu latest UN Speech: “President Abbas, I extend my hand – the hand of Israel – in peace.”

Sound great and so true to a gentile living remotely in Indonesia who supports the existence and thriving of Israel. I totally agree with him. But how come Netanyahu was always portray in a dim or dark light here by Debbie? A house divided can not stand, so the saying goes. Isn’t there any way for Israel loving Jews to work together collaboratively to achieve your collective purpose?

Ngindon on September 24, 2011 at 1:53 am

I am a Lutheran (LCMS) and we are running into the same type of problems. We believe in both the old and new testaments and what it instructs us to do. I like to think that both our Jewish bothers and sisters and us both believe in the same God. Like them some of our “brothers” are falling away believing and supporting gays as being right and muslims as poor and misunderstood. We all must keep the faith that in the end God will do what is right. But, that does not mean we do nothing to oppose this evil while we are on earth we must fight every inch winning some losing hopefully little but always fighting the good fight no matter where or what.

Jonathan Gartner on September 24, 2011 at 10:34 am

Whatever happened the the separation of Mr Church & St State? You can bet your shirt that had this been any church telling its congregation to vote GOP, local or national Liberals would have been screaming to get their 501(c)(3) status rescinded. I’ll guess the same would have been true of any Orthodox synagogues that tried to tell their congregation to vote GOP.

I have another question. What’s it about non-Orthodox Jews that makes them Liberal? I mean, one could be a somewhat less devout than others, and yet still support the common sense policies that would keep Jews alive against the onslaught of Muslims everywhere. After all, why would any Jew need to keep kosher in order to figure out that muslims hate them, and that hatred is hard-coded right in the quran and sunnah? The two ought to be completely separate, and the devotion of any Jew ought to be irrelevant to how s/he views Muslims.

Infidel Pride on September 24, 2011 at 11:42 am

In the 40+ years I have been attending services and events at Orthodox synagogues, listening to “shiurim (lectures)”, reading them printed in newsletters and books, etc., I never hear Orthodox rabbis going on about external issues (i.e. the blame narrative). The sermons and lectures are typically attempting to teach how to live our own lives according to God’s commandments, and improving/repairing what is wrong with ourselves. It seems like only non-Orthodox inject politics and external “shtuss” into sermons and talks at religious events. And of course many of the sermons I’ve heard being given in churches (especially Black churches) are all about the blame- how it’s everyone elses fault. You don’t see Orthodox rabbis jumping around and pouring sweat yelling at the congregation… although sometimes I think it would be kind of neat to see that suddenly happen on a slow holiday afternoon…
