Australian Rabbi: Love Muslims and Everything Will Be OK

Is Woodstock still leading the world to destruction?

Christian and Jewish religious leaders in Australia have launched a “We’ll love Muslims 100 years” campaign to express love and support for the country’s Muslim population, the JTA reported.

“We have Muslims who are made to feel like terrorists in the past few years and they report the atmosphere is similar to post-9/11 and it is simply as a result of cultural incompetence,” explained Rabbi Zalman Kastel, of the Together for Humanity Foundation.

He and pastor Brad Chilcott, national director of Welcome to Australia, a non-profit that focuses on issues relating to immigration and asylum, are heading the campaign that is supposed to make Islamic jihadists love Christians and Jews.

The name of the campaign – loving Muslims for 100 years – is a riff on a recent headline, published in the Weekend Australian, that stated, “We’ll fight Muslims 100 years,” according to a report in The Guardian.

It is clear why they will love Muslims for only 100 years and not any longer because if “love” is the solution to Muslim terror, there won’t be any Christians and Jews left in the world in the year 2114.

The year is 2024 is more likely, but let’s not quibble about the extra zero added on to 10 years.

Any assumption that Rabi Kastel is another Reform “rabbi” smoking The New York Times is dead wrong.

Believe it or not, he is a strictly Orthodox rabbi born and raised in Brooklyn.

He and his non-Jewish pals plan three major love events in Australia to rally Australian Muslims around the banner of love.

The Together for Humanity Foundation has been around for 12 years, in which time its love has paralleled the spread of fanatical Islam to the point that many Muslim countries as well as almost the entire non-Muslim world, except Israel, is scared to death, literally.

The Humanity Foundation was launched less than year after 9/11 and 12 years before the Islamic State ISIS has declared war on the United States, although President Barack Obama dismisses the declaration while ISIS beheads one American journalist, prepares another one for death and claims it has cells in the United States ready to strike fear into the hearts of heathen Christians and Jews who do not accept Islam. It does not mean middle class Islam but the real stuff that also expresses love – love for hate and love for death.

The catalyst for the “We’ll Love Muslims for 100 Years’ campaign was a recent headline the Weekend Australian, “We’ll fight Islam 100 years.”

It is forbidden to express the words “fight” in the world of Woodstock, unless one is fighting for “love” of everything, including hate. Or as John Lennon sang, “Imagine.” That is far as Rabbi Kastel’s reality goes – imagination.

But he insists he is not living in Woodstock.

It would be interesting to know what Talmudic discussion he uses for his outlook. But so far he is using his foundation’s Muslim president, Christian chairman and an atheist patron to back him.

The good rabbi, may God grant him a speedy spiritual recovery, is bothered by the “harsh talk” against Muslims in mainstream and social media.

“I was concerned about shrill, harsh talk we see both in social and mainstream, even though there is a lot of good interfaith work going on in Australia every day,” he said, quoted by the London Guardian.

“As a result, we have Muslims who are made to feel like terrorists in the past few years and they report the atmosphere is similar to post-9/11 and it is simply as a result of cultural incompetence.

“We are all on the same team, if I may use that word, in terms of the result, and that is peace.”

  10. love is not in their vocabulary

  11. That poor excuse for a rabbi is going to find out the Muslims he loves so much want to give him a whole new meaning for Down Under.

  12. Roy Levinson says:

    The liberal mindset always befuddles me. Guess what? The world is NOT a nice place. Pretending that it is and expecting that your wonderful deeds will make it so is delusional.

  13. Go to Gaza and tell them you love them! You should make sure you tell them you’re a rabbi!

  14. That’s ambivalent personality!

  15. That’s ambivalent personality!

  16. Bill Putnam says:

    And how is that working for you ?????

  17. what has he been smoking?

  18. Some people blow smoke while others hold the cheeks.Muslims, particularly in Israel are of course the Jews worst enemy, and they can be nasty elsewhere. I know it pisses people off, but history tells the truth. It’s not “Woodstock thinking” that this “Love” comes from. It comes from our bestest friends the Christians who wants “love” to erase what they have done to Jews (and everyone). And if the theory of philosophical love works one place then the myth goes it will work elsewhere. Too bad neither source represents true love.But it’s pretty rich for certain people to swallow the advice of an ancient “rabbi” even worshiping him but then trash a modern one for the same view.

  19. Woodstock was another issue entirely. Although many Woodstocker’s were just against war in general, and that is a problem, since wars are sometimes very necessary in order to defend one’s nation against monsters like the Viet Cong and Hamas, ISIS, the Nazi’s etc, the Vietnam was being run by the UN, not by America. The way it was run was immoral — put American soldiers in unnecessary risk.

  20. Gary Gien says:

    Nothing wrong with Muslims , it’s the extremist Muslims that are the ones who need to be taken to the vet and put down .

  21. How do you love someone that wants you dead?

  22. Joanne Adams says:

    Don’t compare to Woodstock!! DUMB ASS

  23. HOW COZY! LET HIM LOVE FIRST AND WATCH THEM COME FOR HIS FAMILY

  24. What is he going to do if some armed Muslims show up at the doorstep of his house or synagogue, ready to kill as many as they can? Would any sane person think that he should say, “Oh, I love you. Come on in and kill as many as you like”?

  25. What Crazy will do !

  26. The tares were not sown amongst the wheat so we (the wheat) could be buddies or friends. They weren’t sown amongst the wheat so we could put a blue bumper sticker that says “COEXIST” on our cars. The tares were sown amongst the wheat so they could steal, kill, and destroy, and THAT’S exactly what they are doing!
