Rabbis, ministers, imams denounce Pamela Geller’s bus ads

In many ways Masjidullah in West Oak Lane is the bridge between the three Abrahamic faiths present in Philadelphia. The edifice at the corner of Washington Lane and Limekiln Pike was once a synagogue before it was home to the West Oak Lane Church of God —who sold it to the mosque. Hebrew writing and the Star of David is visible or covered over in a way that it has not been removed. Stained glass Christian windows are also preserved beneath the Muslim façade.

So, it is little wonder that when an interfaith group of clergy gathered on Good Friday it was at Masjidullah located at 7433 Limekiln Pike. There rabbis, ministers and imams joined together to denounce the negative portrayal of those who practice Islam on SEPTA buses. Yet the gathering also offered the opportunity for persons like Stephanie Jones of West Oak Lane to experience her first time inside a mosque.

“I saw all the people coming over while I was shopping on the avenue and decided to see what was going on,” Jones said. “I learned a lot about what the mosque is doing here. I didn’t even realize that there was an Islamic school here. Sometimes you drive by places and never really see. I think we should all unite whenever there is something negative going on.”

In her remarks Rabbi Nancy Kreimer of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in Wyncote, said that many in the Jewish community share the Muslims’ concern about the advertisement. She said she interrupted her Seder preparation to attend the public event denouncing the bus ads. She drew spontaneous applause during her remarks…

    Call it a “negative portrayal” because that what Islam promotes. That it causes some awkward moments between the faiths is because one of those faiths is not like the others, has an ideology that despises those same others, and an active battle plan drawn up by their founding “prophet” to eliminate those same others, but only completely.

    The truth hits these people like a brick off the forehead. Dhimmi, dhimmi, dhimmi!

      They’re pathetic.

        Who said that: My idiot people?

    • These apologists are clearly not doing themselves any favours.

    “Rabbi Nancy Kreimer of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College.”

    Imagine what ISIS would do to this cunt.


    “By 2050, in 35 years, the number of Muslims will equal Christian,” Rashid said. “By 2070, in 55 years, Islam will be the biggest religion. That means when my 10-year-old son is 45, his religion will equal the number of Christians, and when he’s older, Muslims will outnumber Christians. So, these ads are a response to a shameless act of desperation. The future of this world is Islam.

    That Muslim knows the score.

      I will jump for joy in radioactive rubble before I submit to Islam.
      Heck, I’d do that before I submit to anyone.

    These interfaith groups, abound in political correctness. Political correctness and Islam are like a neurological disorder. Which probably explains why mentally ill people are drawn to Islam.
    These bus ads are controversial for sure. They are blunt. And sometimes the truth is as blunt as anything you will experience. On top of that they are truthful. And these interfaith groups don’t counter the arguments. They just deny there is anything wrong.

    Pam is a hero as are the few others like like her willing to risk so much
    To be truthful and help others to be more aware….the multiculti interfaith groups will be mowed under in the roads of time, lost and gone, while the leaders in creating edge of awareness toward understanding new paradigms as they emerge those like
    Pam will leave an indelible mark in history…
    Onward and upward Pam

    I love the ads and wish we had them in Canada….why don’t we?

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      I have an idea for one, too.
      One of these things just doesn’t belong here.
      One of these things not kinda the same…

  • BillyHW

    Some people find the truth very offensive.

    Sorry but in Judaism there are no female rabbis just as there are no female priests in the Catholic Church. Like it or not that is just the way it is. I think in this case it is the “Jewish” equivalent of the United Church in Canada.

  • Pamela Geller is a great heroine. G-d bless her and watch over her. Every day I marvel at her courage and devotion to freedom for all of us.
