A synagogue is rebuilt in Beirut, and according to CNN, and we are supposed to feel happy about the fact that the Islamic supremacists of Hezbollah, are flaunting their “generosity and tolerance” credentials for allowing it to happen.
The Jews in Beirut are allowed to function as long as they remain in their place. It’s the tradtional dhimmitude they, both Jews and Christians, have had to endure ever since Islam became a political power, and this creep, Fareed Zakaria knows this, and he has CNN as a platform to spill his nonsense.

And now for the “Last Look.” With all the talk about places of worship and where they do and don’t belong, I wanted you to see this. This is the Magen Abraham synagogue. It’s not in Miami. It’s not in Tel Aviv. It’s in Beirut. That’s right, Beirut, Lebanon.The synagogue is just now emerging from a painstaking restoration project. When the repairs began over a year ago, the temple was literally a shell of its former self. So why did this nation, often teetering on the brink of religious hostilities and hostilities with Israel, restore a Jewish house of worship? To show that Lebanon is an open and tolerant country.And indeed, the project is said to have found support in many parts of the community, not just from the few remaining Jews there, but also Christians and Muslims and Hezbollah. Yes, Hezbollah — the one that the United States has designated a foreign terrorist organization.
Hezbollah’s view on the renovation goes like this. “We respect divine religions, including the Jewish religion. The problem is with Israel’s occupation of Arab lands … not with the Jews.” Food for thought. Thanks to all of you for being part of my program this week. I will see you next week. Stay tuned for “Reliable Sources.”
