Our book and the Ground Zero Mosque

August 26, 2010
Hurray for Rabbi Arthur Waskow of the Shalom Center for his insightful blog on CNN, in which he led the Jewish support for the "Mosque" near Ground Zero. He wrote, “The Shalom Center, in consultation with dozens of rabbis and other Jewish leaders of a very wide spectrum of Jewish life, has issued a statement supporting Cordoba's plans as an affirmation of the deepest commitments of Islam to live in peace and as a direct rebuke to the 9/11 terrorists who justified their murders in the name of Islam.” His point was sharpest when he connected with the history of prohibitions against Jews building synagogues at “sensitive” sites.
