Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, is one of my oldest friends. We attended Yeshiva Flatbush elementary school together. When Karen and I made our first exploratory trip to Los Angeles, Abe was one of the first people we contacted. At the most difficult time in our lives, Karen and I called on Abe to officiate at our son Ariel Chaim’s funeral. And just last week, Karen and I had a delightful Shabbat dinner at Abe’s home.
Abe has written a sharply focused essay about the IslamoNazi threat to civilization and the double standard applied to the Jewish state by the liberal West.
Jews are butchered in Israel every day. Yet Paris, Brussels, Berlin, London and Stockholm continue to insist, blindly, that the IslamoNazi war on Israel is somehow different.
