Dear Rabbi Meyer, In reading your post, I feel an anger hard to describe, I live in Amsterdam, born in Sweden, recieved my education in Denmark, have traveled all over the world, and met clerics from every creed in my travels, I have had many a good discussions over religion, and beeing well versed in theology, I am repulsed by the way you write this. First thing is to separate Judaism from the policy's of the state of Israel, you do not do that, and that is unfortunate, Judaism as a faith is welcomed all over the world, after all you are the base of the other 2 major religions here in Europe, and beeing around here in Buitenveldert with secular and orthodox jews, I see you fail miserably to understand the respect of the other 2 religions. Secondly it really doesn't help to have a dual citizenship, where is your allegiance then, hence the distrust( has nothing to do with religion ). Third, the muslims commiting these attacks in Europe, are doing in not towards jews per se, but against the policies of Israel, if this is fueled by their spiritual leaders, or not can be discussed, and as a spirutual leader yourself, you make no peace, only pointing towards muslims/christians, and therefore alienating yourself further. Fourth, I live in an area mostly populated by people of the judaic faith, orthodox as well as secular, all of my secular friends ( the orthodox see me as a likeable non-person), have only 1 nationality, and 1 faith, why split this ? If you read this post, I would like you to answer this, why would a state trust someone with dual citizenships, and towards a " tribe " that insists that all others are wrong? Please feel free to contact me, Haaretz have my details.
