Something For the Islamophobes and Islamophiles

A Guest Post By E. Fink

I saw this video posted by Rabbi Adlerstein on Cross-Currents. It is worth posting here as well as there is a more open forum for discussion (v'hamayvin yavin).

The Tomb of Ezekiel is in Iraq. The shrine above it is being refurbished by Muslim clerics.

No doubt, the Islamophobes will see evidence that the Muslims are taking over a Jewish Holy Site in their quest to take over the world.

I, and the NY Times, and the Clerics themselves see it differently. It seems to me that this is a wonderful gesture of tolerance and respect.
