    I suppose I understand the urge to treat Muslims like Jews, Christians, or seculars but they aren’t. Anti semitism, anti Christian, anti secular is part of the faith. The overwhelming majority of Muslims do not murder or bomb innocents, but the majority is silent about it. If any country develops a significant minority of Muslims they become dangerous to non Muslims. Should we not be honest about the subject? Why should any western nation welcome Muslim immigration? What purpose does it support? Maybe if they had to all remain in Islamic countries those who want change would change them. If not why should any non muslim country welcome them? Isn’t this urge to prove we aren’t anti Muslim self destructive. Has it changed anything in the right direction?

    That was really good. Lots of facts and critical thinking. I think that would be a good video for homeschoolers.

    Cory Booker is so full of crap. Textbook political parasite.

    The question is not without nuance. We all know (I’m assuming) Muslims who, as Shmuley stated, are mortified by those Islamists who use their religion to justify genocide. We see what happened in Europe with the multi-culturalists who pushed for North African and Middle Eastern immigration in the ’90s, and now we have zones in Europes greatest cities where Sharia is practiced. It’s in these neighborhoods there is no assimilation, and the extreme elements propagate hate whereby the marginalized members of society take that hate and turn it into action. But we also have to be honest about this. It isn’t just Islamists. The last two synagogue shootings were antisemitic American extremists who hate everyone (yes MSM, even this President). So while Islamists are a constant problem that must be fought, the growing antisemitism is not just coming from one demographic. This is why what NY Times did (which CBS News gave 12 seconds of coverage) is so unconscionable.

    It’s my belief that western Leftists assume they can say what they want about Jews because they have taken them for granted, as Jews vote in large numbers for Democrats, Labour and Parti Socialiste. The question is whether a #Jexodus movement can turn a percentage of American Jews away from the Left.

    I had a Muslim boss million years ago. The only time I ever saw that guy be sort of uncomfortable in his own skin was when he explained me that there were people in his own religion they wanted to kill him. Ultimately, this all comes down to who do you trust to explain the theology and how that fits in with the USA.

    Great observation.

    My brother-in-law is Jewish. He just can’t accept that big government doesn’t work. If it doesn’t work it just means we need to vote for better or something. He believes in “experts” and democracy way more than I do. I also get the sense he really dislikes social conservatives. That’s my amateur opinion of how to think about it.

    I would suggest that represents that liberal intellectual ‘elitist’ mindset and not a religious one.

    He’s definitely not very religious and he has a PhD. I guess I meant it as a cultural thing, but I’m really just shooting in the dark.

    Cory Booker was his closest friend? I’m not sure the rabbi knows on which side his bread is buttered.

    I love Rabbi Shmuely, but I think sometimes he is too forgiving. But I do appreciate his passion for Jews and Israel. Thanks for the interview, Dave.

    I don’t disagree with both you and @susanquinn regarding Booker. After the Iran Deal and Booker supporting Obama’s State Dept. funded interference in Israel’s 2015’s election, it’s why I asked where the line is crossed. I got the sense he was uncomfortable saying what he really felt as his history with the man goes back to his Oxford days. I am not sure I could be so diplomatic under similar circumstances, but I am also not a Rabbi.

    Shmule Rules!

    Self-styled “white nationalists” call themselves that because the accurate name,“white racists”, has come to be a term of opprobrium. Before World War II they were more honest.

    They probably picked up this deceptive and intentionally confusing usage from the “black nationalists”, who were also interested in presenting their racist views in a positive light.

    I also don’t think the Rabbi knows enough about Islam.

    It’s sad, because at one time Cory Booker looked like that rare black figure in the Democratic Party who wasn’t selling out his own race for political advantage. 

    According to the liberal media, one of his “problems“ running for the Democratic nomination is that he has, in the past, supported rescuing poor black kids from the public school monopoly that is destroying their life prospects.

    What they have to do to get the nomination is bizarre. Then we are supposed to respect the office after they do all of that. 

    The Executive has too much power and nothing is going to change.
