PJTN (Proclaiming Justice to the Nations), CUFI (Christians United for Israel) and Tennessee’s state legislators like Judd Matheny and Sheila Butt, pass strong pro-Israel resolutions.
Meanwhile, political leftists seem to dominate the organized Jewish community in Nashville, Tennessee. Despite over 100 knife attacks on Jews in Israel, no matter how many calls for another intifada, no matter how many Jewish children are murdered while sleeping in their beds, politically left American Jews and their leadership, stand with the jihadist murderers.
(Fogel children murdered by jihadists: 11 year old Yoav, 4 year old Elad and a three month old infant girl, Hadas)
The rabbis in Nashville even have a slogan that justifies this resolve – “We may be opponents, we need not be enemies.” Even local Islamists whose group members emulate the language and values of HAMAS can get this rabbinical absolution. The leftist leadership extends the same olive branch to the anti-Israel, pro-BDS Nashville start-up chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), a group that puts politics before support for the Jewish biblical homeland.
JVP is an anti-Zionist Jewish hate group that collaborates with and stands in solidarity with other anti-Israel hate groups like Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP). Not surprisingly, JVP and SJP spewed from the same UC Berkley campus.
According to the Anti-Defamation League, JVP pushes ending U.S. aid to Israel, agitates both on and off college campuses using the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) campaign, the goal of which is to end Israel as a Jewish state. BDS embeds its objectives in language about social justice and human rights in order to deceive people who have a conscience.
Temple member and Alinsky disciple Pat Halper, is helping JVP to grow a Nashville chapter.
Halper, a member of The Temple (Congregation Ohabai Shalom led by Islamist fictionalist rabbi Mark Schiftan), is an extreme political leftist drawn to neo-Marxist organizations like Saul Alinsky’s first Nashville project called “Tying Nashville Together (TNT)” where she served as a board member. Once TNT flopped, many of its members moved on to NOAH (Nashville Organized for Action and Hope). Halper joined NOAH’s Executive Committee. She also chaired the social justice committee at The Temple.
Halper’s alignment with Israel’s enemies began long before Nashville’s JVP start-up. On July 13, 2011, the first Nashville “Family of Abraham” (FoA) event was held at the University School of Nashville. Predictably, Halper was part of a large host committee joining her fellow Temple congregant, Bernard Werthan who is credited with getting the the Nashville FoA started.
TCPJ has written extensively about the red-green alliance, the Nashville FoA group and its connection to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel. Werthan is heavily invested in FoA which could explain why he also donated to the New Israel Fund (NIF), which finances several groups that push the BDS campaign against Israel.
The reality is that Family of Abraham events feature Muslim speakers and others who counsel attendees about how everyone should want to get closer to Muslims in their communities because they are only different branches of the same family tree. The subtext of the meetings is Muslim victimhood and, by analogy, the same for their Middle Eastern brethren, the Arab Muslim Palestinians.
Supporting JVP lets Halper claim that unlike other Jews, she doesn’t automatically side with Israel. Progressive social justice Jews can look at the conflict and draw moral equivalences between Israeli civilians and Arab terrorists. JVP is also an antedote for Alinskyites like Halper whose white privilege lets her live in an expensive Green Hills neighborhood and send her kids to expensive private schools.
Or, maybe Halper is just trying to follow the example of her rabbi – every progressive interfaither should be able to say “one of my best friends is Muslim.”
The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society announced that they will drop the word “Hebrew” and go simply by “HIAS.” They are one of the national federal refugee resettlement contractors screaming for Obama to admit at least 200,000 Syrian refugees regardless of valid security and cost concerns. HIAS and the other resettlement industry contractors have criticized Obama’s measly 10,000 Syrians that he has begun bringing to the U.S. This number of 10,000 is on top of the 70,000 plus of the mostly-sharia-compliant refugees from Islamic America-hating countries.
HIAS, like all resettlement businesses whose revenue is overwhelimingly government money, try to camouflage their extreme political leftism using religious organizational labels. They claim a moral superiority because “they save lives.”
The URJ also supports “Free Choice in Abortion.”
The URJ has a political arm called the Religious Action Center (RAC) whose work and policy positions are “mandated” by the URJ and the various arms of the Reform Jewish movement. The Nashville Temple Ohabai Sholom in Nashville, is a Reform Jewish congregation and a member of the URJ, a recipient of URJ grant money, and as the Temple’s rabbi Shana Mackler says, is a proud supporter of Planned Parenthood.
The Temple is led by senior rabbi Mark Schiftan who shares the URJ’s love of Muslim Islamists. URJ’s immediate past president, rabbi Eric Yoffe, was one of the first Jewish leaders to speak at the annual ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) convention. ISNA was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood’s first U.S. organization, the Muslim Students Association (MSA). ISNA was also named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial for financing the terrorist group HAMAS. HAMAS, a U.S. designated terrorist organization, the jihadist arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, is dedicated to the destruction of Israel.
Rabbi Schiftan says that Islamists who support the Muslim Brotherhood and HAMAS, are not enemies, just “opponents.” So the Murfreesboro mosque hosting HAMAS supporters like CAIR executive director Nihad Awad and senior Muslim Brotherhood leader and unindicted co-conspirator Jamal Badawi, was not reason enough to keep Schiftan from hauling his congregation to a mosque love-fest. Nor is the fundamentalism of imams trained at Al Ahzar University, the preeminent teaching center of sharia law, enough to keep Schiftan from looking for every public opportunity to validate an ideology focused on destroying Israel.
Yoffe has called John Hagee, an extremist. Hagee is the leader of CUFI (Christians United for Israel), one of Israel’s largest allies and advocates in the U.S. Leftists like Yoffe, and his “Torah of Liberalism” puts support for gays and abortion above sincere and impactful advocacy for the Jewish ancestral homeland.
Abbie Wolf, the Nashville Jewish Federation’s director of the Community Relations Council, shares Yoffe’s pro-Muslim bias and Christianophobia. In advance of a Nashville visit by CUFI’s Executive Director, Wolf published a piece titled “Christian Zionism – do the Concerns Outweigh the Benefits?” She says that the only real value Christian Zionist lovers of Israel bring to the table, is their large voting bloc and their money.
Like Yoffe, Wolf denounces Christian lovers of Israel because they don’t equally love Islamists like HAMAS and other Muslim Brotherhood followers.
Islamist ideology is obsessed with the destruction of Jews and Israel. Do political leftists who actively deny and abet the Islamist plan even deserve to call themselves Jews?
The Red-Green Alliance goes after the South
Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) understood the value of penetrating the traditionally conservative political South, especially, religious organizations in the Bible Belt’s buckle of Middle Tennessee. Once IAF connected with religious communities in Nashville that were starting to drift left, they were able to access people and money and launch TNT (Tying Nashville Together).
As documented in The Newer Deal: Social Work and Religion in Partnership, “[a]t all TNT activities, members pray together and emphasize that their raison d’etre is to fulfill their religious calling.” Meaning, TNT members demand that the government perform the charitable work otherwise demanded by TNT members’ religious doctrines.
While the professional left was doing its work to transform religious communities, the Islamists were busy transforming the ACLU.
The ACLU abets the Muslim Brotherhood agenda
A 2012 Investors Business Daily editorial questions the Islamization of the ACLU, a change reflected in the cases and positions advocated (or not) by the ACLU. The change has brought deeper ties with Muslim Brotherhood groups like unindicted co-conspirator organization CAIR.
This may be why in 2010 the ACLU remained silent at the capitulation of the media and law enforcement when cartoonist Molly Norris was forced into hiding after proposing “everybody draw Mohammed day.” Norris received no protection from law enforcement and no objection was made by the ACLU.
In stark contrast, however, the ACLU did file a suit on behalf of the father of al-Qaeda terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki, objecting to the government issuing a kill order for him.
The ACLU has publicly defended ICNA’s charitable fundraising despite ICNA’s Muslim Brotherhood ties, its questionable donations to organizations connected to HAMAS, and it leadership’s support for other Islamic charities our government has shut down because they fund terrorism.
Just like Alinsky’s IAF, the Muslim Brotherhood’s ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) also has a Southern strategy. Starting with the Southern Islamic Convention designed to reinforce ideas like global sharia law, using materials that promote hatred of Jews and Christians and dawa (Islamic proselytizing) in U.S. public schools.
ICNA is well entrenched in Tennessee. Rafiq Mahdi, ICNA Director of Outreach for Southern Region for their charity arm, ICNA Relief USA, lives in Knoxville. He also serves as the “unofficial imam” of the Knoxville Muslim community.
If the ACLU didn’t have double standards, they’d have no standards at all
In Tennessee, Hedy Weinberg uses her ACLU office to abet the Islamist agenda.
One stunning example of Weinberg’s support for all things Islamist and her own hypocrisy, is her lawsuit against the Sumner County school district.
In 2011 ACLU-TN filed a suit against the school district because of alleged promotion of Christian beliefs to students by school personnel. A settlement agreement was reached that prohibited school officials from promoting their personal religious beliefs to students, prohibited the display of “religious symbols and items…in a place publicly visible to students,” and “…the schools can no longer take field trips to religious sites.”
Two years later, a high school located in Sumner County, in direct violation of the ACLU settlement agreement, took a group of freshman on a field trip to a mosque where they listened to readings from the Quran and a were given copies.
There is no public record indicating that the ACLU objected to this Sumner County school violating the settlement agreement. Why?
Are churches waking up?
Real Catholic TV has posted a video “CCHD and Saul Alinsky,” exposing the infiltration by Alinsky’s IAF and the fact that it does not align with Catholic doctrine, despite continued funding from the CCHD (Catholic Campaign for Human Development.)
Albuquerque Interfaith, an IAF affiliate has been exposed for trying to disguise its leftist agenda as being consistent with “decades of Catholic social justice teaching and authentic Catholic action.” For example, the report details:
- how Alinsky principles are not ethical while “Authentic Catholic Action” (ACA), is always ethical
- how Albuquerque Interfaith is tied to an IAF group Call to Action which opposes the church’s teachings
- how Alinsky organizing promotes liberation theology which is not consistent with either ACA or the church’s teachings
- that Marxist ideas of class warfare are likewise not consistent with ACA which “promotes cooperation and respect among all members of society.”
- Alinskyian organizing replaces the mandate to serve the poor with government programs that often harm the poor.
Leftist media helps out where they can
This year, leftist media The Los Angeles Times, named Muslim Brotherhood’s CAIR director Nihad Awad, one of the nation’s “new civil rights leaders.” Awad has publicly voiced his support for the U.S. designated terrorist organization, HAMAS, the jihadi arm of the Muslim Brotherhood.
CAIR, a named unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing prosecution, is also a designated terrorist organization in the UAE.
The Tennessean “reporter” Bob Smietana set the strategy for the newspaper by silencing any criticism of Islam. The newest editor, David Plazas carries water for the Islamists by promoting CAIR director Paul “Iesa” Galloway who now runs the Muslim American Center for Outreach (ACO).
What can you do?
- find out whether your congregation was a TNT member. Do they still profess to the socialist goals? Educate your friends about where this leads
- if you belong to a Catholic church, share the report about the Albuquerque interfaith group that exposes how Alinsky’s IAF partners don’t adhere to authentic church doctrine
- all churches want money – your money. But if your church is going to the red-green alliance, consider withholding your tithe to the church and instead, direct your tithe to a more worthy charity
- work to wake up your fellow congregants and your pastors and explain why leftist organizations undermine personal responsibility for our fellow man
- spread the word to expose the ACLU for the hypocritical and destructive organization it is.
If Bill Gibbons, Bill Killian and Bill Haslam hadn’t elevated Tennessee’s Muslims to a super protected class could the Chattanooga jihad murder have been averted?
Bill Gibbons – Despite the 2009 jihad murder by Memphis native Carlos Bledsoe, Tennessee’s Commissioner of Safety and Homeland Security Bill Gibbons (also from Memphis), took an early lead in obscuring any objective examination of who and what the jihad threat might be in Tennessee:
- 2011 – Bill Gibbons assigned James Cotter to help organize the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) whose founding members openly praise Muslim Brotherhood organizations that “help American Muslims stay true to their religious values while being uniquely American.”
- In 2009 James Cotter was a TNDHS Regional Advisor who said with regard to foreign threats, “anything that they do over there can happen here and will.” [almost like a prediction of Chattanooga]. Not long after helping AMAC organize, Cotter was promoted to the state’s Office of Homeland Security Training Advisor.
- 2011 – AMAC posted these pictures from when they were invited by TNDHS to start training Tennessee safety and homeland security personnel.
- November 2011, Gibbons sent a congratulatory letter to AMAC dated months before his denial of his agency’s involvement with them.
- In early 2012 when asked, Gibbons denied ever having been involved with AMAC – right before his 2011 letter appeared.
- September 2012 – Nashville Somali refugee worker said “she was ready to die for Allah. Further, Abdullahi said that her life starts after death and that she should pick up a gun and ‘shoot all these people,’ referring to her co-workers.”
Bill Killian – In June 2013 Tennessee U.S. Attorney Bill Killian spoke at an AMAC event. He said he would use federal civil rights laws to stop legally permissible hate speech directed at Muslims. The next day Killian disclosed how he planned to promote politically correct speech while suppressing First Amendment rights:
“Hateful statements directed at another will be used as evidence in a hate crime,… Our district has a 96 percent conviction rate…and we’ve never had a conviction overturned for violation of First Amendment.”
- December 2014 – a claimed ISIS related group threatened to blow up the Memphis-Arkansas bridge.
- January 2015 – Cyber Caliphate hacks into “secure” Stewart County, TN server.
- May, 2015 – Nashville Douglas Corner Cafe cyber-hacked with “I am Muslim and I love jihad”
- July 16, 2015 – Jihad murders at two military reserve centers in Chattanooga.
Bill Killian has been assigned the lead position in investigating the Chattanooga jihad murders. Bill Killian has made his Islamist apologist bias public and has a conflict of interest and should recuse himself.
Bill Haslam – the governor of Oklahoma, Mary Fallon DID NOT HESITATE to immediately issue an executive order enabling National Guardsmen to be armed at military facilities. Governors in several other states followed her lead.
With his typical lack of urgency, the best Bill Haslam could do was delay action. First he’s having an inquiry made and then he’ll see about how the state can expedite members of the military getting a state gun carry permit.
Is the Governor aware that the Brentwood mosque where jihadi murderer Abdulazeez prayed while he was working in Franklin, is located right next door to a Marine recruitment center?
What’s the likelihood that any or all of the Three Bills, can put their political correctness and Muslim apologist bias aside to remember that they have a duty to protect all of us, not just Muslim sensitivities?
After the Holy Land Foundation prosecution, the FBI severed its relationship with CAIR because of its associations with the HAMAS-support network. But some FBI field offices violated the restrictions.
In 2011, a continuing funding resolution signed by Obama included language that barred the FBI from partnering with unindicted co-conspirators like CAIR. Two years later, the DOJ Inspector General released a report documenting how the FBI violated the Congressional ban by working with CAIR.
Regardless of the FBI’s efforts, CAIR directors work to undermine law enforcement. Michigan’s Dawud Walid tells his listeners not to cooperate with the FBI because they are “agent provocateurs” that target Muslims.” Walid was brought to Tennessee by ACO’s director to train Muslim high school students in political activism.
On a broader scale, the Islamist organizations are working to sanitize law enforcement training materials by withholding pertinent information and thus, effectively neutering our national security agencies.
In 2013 Judicial Watch issued its detailed report about the purge of counterterrorism training materials used by different federal agencies. The identities of who decided which materials were offensive and needed to be removed, is unknown; 876 pages and 392 presentations were purged.
Kenneth Moore, the Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Knoxville Office, signed the FBI memo detailing the information purged from the FBI training programs. Moore spoke at the Tennessee AMAC (American Muslim Advisory Council) event jn Manchester where Tennesseans were told what they could and could not say about Islam and Muslims.
In August 2014, Tennessee’s Muslim ACO (American Center for Outreach) along with CAIR and other Muslim Brotherhood affiliate organizations, signed onto another letter demanding more purging of materials and retraining of personnel across government agencies.
Tennessee’s lead law enforcers work to appease Islamists
In 2009 James Cotter a TNDHS Regional Advisor said with regard to foreign threats, “anything that they do over there can happen here and will.”
Two short years later, Tennessee’s Islamists received a congratulatory letter from Bill Gibbons, TN Commissioner of Safety and Homeland Security, Cotter was promoted for helping AMAC to organize and AMAC members were included in department trainings. So, there is no reason to believe that Tennessee’s law enforcement personnel are receiving complete and fact based training about Islamist activity in the state.
The Muslim Brotherhood Plan specifically addressed subversion of the media. Tennessee’s Islamists are working aggressively to subvert any media effort to objectively and truthfully report about the Islamist agenda in our state. ACO’s director Paul “Iesa” Galloway’s background is in PR & media. AMAC board member Sabina Mohyuddin supports Muslim Brotherhood organizations. They recently brought the Muslim Brotherhood’s media influence operation to the desk of The Tennessean editorial board.
What should informed citizens do?
Continue to educate yourself and those around you. Our state and federal government will allow the subversion to continue until leaders with eyes wide open choose a different course. But informed citizens do not have to wait. Anyone willing to use factual and objective information can take steps now to counter the propaganda and media influence that is underway.
Right now Tennessee needs focused efforts to expose Muslim Brotherhood affiliates, ideologues and their fellow travelers operating in Tennessee, with particular attention paid to CAIR and those that promote its work in our state.
Suggested action steps using civil and factual information:
- write well reasoned, factual based letters to the editor of your local paper exposing CAIR for its ties to HAMAS and its presence and ties to Tennessee’s Muslim Brotherhood
- request that your local reporters ask hard questions. For example, what does it mean that Jamal Badawi was listed in the Muslim Brotherhood phone directory or that no Islamist organization has ever denied the authenticity of the Muslim Brotherhood plan? What about CAIR’s director’s statement that he supports HAMAS?
- The Tennessean paper lists Tom Wilemon, as an investigative reporter. He just attended a national training conference put on by Investigative Reporters and Editors, a nonprofit dedicated to improving the quality of investigative reporting. The Tennessean claims “watchdog reporting” is a high priority for them and “serves the greater Nashville community is by doing impactful investigative journalism.” Contact Tom Wilemon – email@example.com.
- expose CAIR operatives like Paul “Iesa” Galloway
- make sure your state legislators know how the director of ACO is tied to CAIR and who and what CAIR is
- dominate the comments section on any relevant articles in your local paper, blog and facebook posts
- educate your neighbors; have a movie night and show movies like “The Grand Deception” and “Losing Our Sons”
- share information with your local sheriff’s office
- read the posts on this blog about interfaith efforts and the groups involved and educate your clergy
- read politicalislam.com and share with your friends
- the Tennessean newspaper – speak to advertisers; ask them why they use their advertising dollars to support a media outlet that is working with CAIR and other Muslim Brotherhood supporters

American Muslims: Is There A Different Mohammed? A Different Quran? A Different Sira? A Different Hadith? A Different Allah? A Different Sharia Law?Posted: May 6, 2015
And they are different….how?
So says Tennessee Muslim American Center for Outreach (ACO) Director, Remziya Suleyman who criticized Nashville Federation Director Mark Freedman for speaking at a recent pro-Israel rally in Nashville. She objected to him standing up for Israel at this event that included some organizations she characterizes as “anti-Muslim.”
On her facebook page, Suleyman rants against the Jewish Federation. In her typical broad-brush labeling of anyone who doesn’t agree with her, she deliberately ignores pertinent facts like:
- the material support bill was a response to Memphis jihadist Carlos Bledsoe, aka Abdulhakim Moahmmed, It was an anti-terrorism bill, NOT an anti-sharia bill. Suleyman and CAIR were the ones that equated anti-terrorism with material support and sharia
- she admitted she didn’t even “know the concept of sharia” before she decided to launch her pro-sharia political agenda
- early objections to the Murfreesboro mosque were based on evidence of Muslim Brotherhood involvement with mosque leadership which has continued with visits from CAIR-Hamas director Nihad Awad and senior Muslim Brotherhood leader and terrorism financing unindicted co-conspirator, Jamal Badawi
Suleyman relies on the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) reports to castigate the Jewish Federation director’s participation with the Christians rallying to support Israel. Has Suleyman read what the ADL has to say about the organizations she works with and the individuals she favors? Obviously not.
After attending Louis Farrakhan’s talk in Nashville, Suleyman publicly commented that the Nation of Islam “got it right.” Has Suleyman read the ADL’s unfavorable opinion about Louis Farrakhan?
The ADL website confirms CAIR’s Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas ties. It also cites CAIR among the Top 10 Anti-Israel groups in the U.S.. Suleyman actively promotes and participates with CAIR, publicly supports their work and even brought CAIR’s anti-Semitic Michigan director to Tennessee to train Muslim high school students. Here is what the ADL says about CAIR:
“CAIR also continues to offer a platform to conspiratorial Israel-bashers and outright anti-Semites. For example, CAIR’s Florida chapter operates a Web site that makes anti-Semitic material available for visitors interested in learning about Islam. CAIR also organizes anti-Israel rallies during which protestors and speakers engage in anti-Semitic rhetoric, use offensive Holocaust imagery likening Jews and Israelis to Nazis, and express support for terror groups.”
Nor does Suleyman offer any explanation about why her organization’s Civic Engagement Coordinator, Drost Kokoye, has been organizing and leading the pro-Hamas rallies. Does Suleyman understand that even if Drost calls it a “free Gaza, pro-Palestinian” rally, it is Hamas, the elected government that she is supporting? Does Suleyman agree with the part in the Hamas charter that calls for jihad to destroy Israel?
Suleyman likes to compare the Muslim struggle to American blacks’ civil rights history. Black Christian Zionist Chloe Valdary would tell Suleyman and her employee Drost Kokoye, that Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks and other black leaders, were both Zionists. As King said, “[w]hen people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You are talking anti-Semitism.” So why does Suleyman surround herself with friends and colleagues who advocate Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS), against Israel and other expressions of anti-semitism and Jew-hatred?
Suleyman says she has Jewish friends who like her, are offended that Freedman put his allegiance with Israel over Muslim sensitivities. Are these the same Jewish friends who belong to the J Street organization that says Israel should negotiate with the terrorist organization Hamas?
Is this the same J Street organization that has included the BDS voice in their annual conference? And the same organization that was rejected membership in the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations?
And the same J Street organization that recently pulled out of an Israel solidarity rally? We would guess that these are Suleyman’s Jewish friends. It’s not likely they would have been at the Nashville Israel rally simply because they would have been confused as to which rally to join. Or, maybe they aren’t confused at all but don’t want to be seen standing with hijabis shrilling in support of Hamas.
Suleyman and her Civic Engagement Coordinator Are Out of Step with Kurdish Support for Israel
Suleyman’s claim to interfaith work is a one-way street because it is really about the Quran’s commandment to proselytize the non-Muslim kaffir. Her sole objective is for non-Muslims to accept what she believes Islam is despite having admitted to the large gaps in her knowledge base. “I never knew the concept of sharia…”
Despite her professed yearning for a free and independent Kurdistan, the country she idealizes and identifies most closely with, she cannot breach the Quran’s Jew-hating directives. She says the Quran “is always right.” Here are only a few of what the Quran says about Jews:
Surah 5:60 from the Quran says: “Say, ‘Shall I inform you of [what is] worse than that as penalty from Allah ? [It is that of] those whom Allah has cursed and with whom He became angry and made of them apes and pigs and slaves of Taghut. Those are worse in position and further astray from the sound way.’”
Surah 5:51 “O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you – then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.”
That may explain why she hasn’t rallied in support of Israel or hasn’t acknowledged that Israel’s Prime Minister is the first world leader to call for an independent Kurdistan.
The Young Kurds group rallied last week in front of the White House shouting, “We support Kurdistan.” “We support Israel our new friend.” “No to Hamas.”
Who does Suleyman support?
Suleyman’s interfaith work is about the Red-Green Alliance
The red-green alliance is part of Suleyman’s interfaith work in Nashville. This interfaith work is more about being anti-Israel in an effort to support Islamist sensitivities. It is dominated by liberal progressive Christians, Jews and even some Muslims, who either openly support the BDS campaign, or like Jewish Voice for Peace, give it their “Jewish” stamp of approval.
The Israel bashers and Jew-haters in their midst, including the Islamists and Arabs, have shrewdly embedded their objectives in the leftist jargon of social justice and human and minority rights. The Islamist partners in the Red-Green Alliance steadfastly challenge man’s right to legislate over Allah and make laws of their own while the Christian leftists delight in practicing social justice with Hamas, a terrorist organization that rules over its own apartheid state.
Suleyman’s other interfaith work is with Religions for Peace, USA (RFP), an organization heavily threaded with Muslim Brotherhood representatives. RFP is “yet another coalition of Islamists and their non-Muslim political allies”
Some Jewish leaders in Nashville finally saying “no” to Jew hatred
Apologists like Rabbi Mark Schiftan cannot control their compulsion to appease Islam. Nor do they acknowledge that the Arab-Israeli conflict is not confined to the Middle East but has implications right here in the U.S.. Other Nashville rabbis and the director of the Nashville Jewish Federation were at the rally and each stated unequivocally that as American Jews, they stood with their Christian friends in support of Israel. They condemned Hamas attacks against Israel and joined in recognizing the courage of IDF soldiers defending their country.
We can only hope that these Jewish leaders will also acknowledge that no matter how they try to appease Islamists like Drost Kokoye, they are not immune from the Islamic Jew-hatred that is rapidly emerging and threatening Jews in Europe. Did they ever believe they would confront pro-Hamas rallies in their city? Are they surprised that their Muslim interfaith partners didn’t join them to rally for Israel?
What Suleyman offers is nothing more than the standard blackmail within the interfaith racket. First they form a warm relationship with you. But then, when you speak up for Israel, they spring into a threatening mode. As Suleyman says, “that’s a nice relationship we got there, it would be a shame if anything happened to it.”
