NEW YORK, NY, 12/12/08) ­ The New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NY) today called on leaders of the Jewish community in that state to repudiate a columnist for a Jewish newspaper who called for the killing of “innocent” Muslims.

In a commentary in the December 12 issue of the 5 Towns Jewish Times, titled, “The Appropriate Response to Islamic Terror,” Lawrence Kulak wrote:

“Moreover, the only way to deal with Islamic terrorists is the same way in which they deal with their victims. Muslims believe in the literal interpretation of the Biblical doctrine of an eye for an eye, and they do not have respect for anything perceived as a lesser standard of justice. They killed our innocents, and unless we kill theirs, they will go on killing ours.”

SEE: The Appropriate Response to Islamic Terror (Pages 59-61)

“Such inflammatory comments have no place in reasoned public discourse,” said CAIR-NY Community Affairs Director Faiza N. Ali. “Calls for violence against innocent civilians of any faith should face universal rejection and repudiation by religious leaders.”

ADL RESPONDS TO CAIR’S CALL TO REPUDIATE ANTI-MUSLIM COLUMNIST - TOP
ADL, 12/17/08

Letters to the Editor
Five Towns Jewish Times

To the Editor:

We were shocked by Lawrence Kulak's suggestion that Jews should kill innocent Muslim civilians to counter Islamic terrorism ("The Appropriate Response to Islamic Terror," Dec. 12).

Regardless of one's views on terrorism, to even entertain the notion of responding in kind is morally reprehensible and appalling. It is unfair to hold innocent Muslims responsible for the radical views of an extreme minority.

In the Jewish tradition, words have consequences. In this case, Kulak's words crossed the line.

Sincerely,
Anti-Defamation League
