Would like to now why the ads were put up

You know I started thinking you are partly right. It's nice to think we shouldn't add to hate. The problem I have is when nice and kind people ignore too much. I have seen to many nice people ignore the realities of hate. I completely agree we need to check hate and often tell it to check out. We just need to think and rethink
when to let it go. I have total respect for your kindness.
Maybe look the other way is best. Somebody has to stand up to hate. This Pamela may have a reason, maybe not.

Agree 100%

Rabbi, you speak the truth. I like to believe that we are a people who promote peace. I am proud of that. Sometimes, the truth may be presented in a way that leads to productive solutions and other times it only stirs the pot. This ad sounds like it will only stir more trouble.

WAKE UP AMERICA!!! More importantly, WAKE UP my fellow Jews....I cannot believe how many of you have your heads in the sand...it's INSANITY. The truth in right in front of you, and none of you want to look at it. Go to THEBLAZE.com and you can read the emes about what is going on. So much for "never again"....it'a about to get really ugly. Thanks for handing this great country over to a dictator of the highest order.....

I looked at the ad and don't see anything controversial. The 9/11 attack and Islamic ideology are joined at the hip, inseparable. Who can deny it? The problem seems to be that many choose to deny it, preferring to living with eyes closed as to what's clearly happening all around the world. The ad isn't telling people to hate Muslims. I don't see it offering any direction whatsoever about what one should do about Islam, but neither I am hearing any answers from Mr. Salomon. I would like to hear what he has to say about how Americans and Jews should deal with the declared war of Islam on all infidels, starting with the "Saturday" people.

I agree

Although I respect and usually agree with Rabbi Salomon --in this case I think he is wrong and I AGREE WITH YOU. Let us not forget who our enemies are--THEY ARE NOT ONLY THE ENEMIES OF ISRAEL BUT OF THE WHOLE CIVILIZED WORLD.
