A huge amount of prime time space has been given to protesters of the Mosque, a group that includes Tea Party members, anti-Islamic activists and, sadly, the Anti-Defamation League or the ADL. The ADL is a long-standing Jewish civil rights organization that released a statement in opposition to the planned Mosque and Cultural Center.
While the ADL’s statement is disappointing to say the least, it shouldn’t overshadow the Jewish community as a whole that has come together in support of the Islamic Cultural Center by writing blogs, letters to the editor and organizing rallies and press conferences.
Listen to imagine2050.net’s latest audio blog to hear more about the response of Jewish leaders and others to anti-Islamic sentiments across the country. The freedom of religion is one that defines us as Americans and it’s a sign of dangerous times when people are willing to give it up in the name of bigotry.
