Rabbi Baruch Frydman-Kohl participated in the fourth annual Reviving the Islamic Spirit conference in 2005, which included a number of speakers who are on the record for promoting intolerance and terror.
In an email exchange, the Tribune asked why that event was acceptable to him and whether any of his views have since changed. Also, could it benefit peace-loving Muslims to have someone speak out against Islamism? He replied, “The TBR statement speaks for itself.”
He also offered to have his remarks at the 2005 conference forwarded to the Tribune, adding only that he “spoke at the same time as a local Christian leader.”Er, come again Baruch? You're a local Christian leader?
Is your congregation aware of that fact?
FYI, here's the TBR's anti-Geller statement, a mealy-mouthed piece of drivel which, sadly, does speak for itself, and which makes those who signed it look like cowards and fools. And here's my post about B/F-K's appearance at RIS.
