    Rabbi Greer is as wild in his accusations as are the Jewish liberals that he criticizes. He uses many of the tactics of the far left. He puts so much blame on mixed marriages and omits all those so called "pure" Jewish marriages which have also produced Jews (real Jews according to the Rabbi) that have become liberal and or gays and lesbians, if not Marxists or atheists. I have no doubt that he blames the Christians for that. That accusation is similar to "The devil made them do it" which absolves all "real" Jews of all responsibility for their choices and actions that the Rabbi deems un-Jewish. Did you liberals in Israel realize that you are not to blame for being liberal. Mixed marriages are to blame. Sleep in peace, Rabbi Greer has absolved you of your sins. You poor innocents.
