I believe if Jefferson's Red Bible were translated to Arabic it would start an avalanche of new thought in Islam and the world. Particularly if the
thoughts and teaching of Jefferson were added to it. Reading it would have the advantage of not causing the readers to be killed by other devout
Interesting choice for reply “Knowledgelover74” it shows how diversified Judaism is.
I first have to wonder is the good Rabi is a relative of Eric Weiss. Secondly what comes to mind is the Israeli Declaration of Independence (May 14,
"The Land of Israel was the birthplace of the Jewish people. Here their spiritual, religious and political identity was shaped. Here they first
attained to statehood, created cultural values of national and universal significance and gave to the world the eternal Book of Books.
After being forcibly exiled from their land, the people kept faith with it throughout their dispersion and never ceased to pray and hope for their
return to it and for the restoration in it of their political freedom."
Many Jews feel the need to be upon this land to fulfill their faith:
…love God within all your hearts and all your souls that I will give the rains of the land in its proper time, the light rains and the heavy rains,
and you will gather your grain, your wine and your oil. I will give grass in your fields for your livestock. You will have enough to eat and you will
be satisfied. Guard yourselves, lest your hearts lead you astray and you will serve other gods and you will bow to them. God will then become angry
with you and will withhold the rain, and the land will not produce its bounty. You will quickly be lost from upon the good land that God has granted
you. You shall place these words on your hearts and on your souls. You shall tie them as a sign on your arms and they shall be head ornaments between
your eyes, and you shall teach them to your children to speak about them when you dwell in your house, when you travel on the road, when you lie down
and when you arise. You shall inscribe them on the doorpost of your houses and your gates. So that you and your children may live many years on the
land that God has promised to your forefathers, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth. (Deuteronomy 11:13-21)
“To be honest” what waits in the existing future (unless a change is made) will be a massive destruction of life in Israel and the surrounding
countries. Indeed this will cause the so called Rapture or more correctly the Gathering of Souls at Megiddo. The gathered will leave this world for a
“New Heaven” and then a “New World”. Those left behind will deal with a Catholic Pope that is taken over by Satan himself and a world war that
will destroy most life on this planet.
Do you realize conversion to Judaism is a blessed act? In the bloodline of David, Ruth was a convert. There is only one true God but He does have a
Son and that Son loves Judaism and all the mitzvahs. Messianic Judaism (devoid of “Paul”) is the only true faith all others are deception.
To return this posting on subject please consider not only how H.A.M.A.S. treats its neighbor but its very children:
Albert Einstein, Fascism quotes:
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal
cord would fully suffice."
But in the longer run I will agree that it would be best if Jew and Moslem could live together under the same flag. To this point of view I would
Albert Einstein, on April 17, 1938, in a speech at the Commodore Hotel in New York City, said:
"I should much rather see reasonable agreement with the Arabs on the basis of living together in peace than the creation of a Jewish state. Apart
from practical consideration, my awareness of the essential nature of Judaism resists the idea of a Jewish state with borders, an army, and a measure
of temporal power no matter how modest. I am afraid of the inner damage Judaism will sustain -- especially from the development of a narrow
nationalism within our own ranks, against which we have already had to fight strongly, even without a Jewish state."
