Shocking: Today I met with a reporter from the Jerusalem Post who told me that he had recently been in a conversation with a high official close to Netanyahu. Off the record he said: "We shouldn't worry too much about Obama being indecisive about Iran--just wait a while, he just hasn't yet had his 9/11." The implication was clear--just as 9/11 had created the prelude for the US attack on Afghanistan and Iraq, so the next 9/11 would provide the prelude to a US war with Iran. But the worst part is this guy's confidence about that does he know that there would be a next 9/11 type attack? He made it clear that the one force pushing the US hard for such a war is Israel. Could it be, God forbid, that someone in the Israeli government thinks that staging another 9/11 attack, and linking it to Iran, would be in Israel's interest? I don't believe it, but this conversation sounded a bit unnerving.

It is in this context that it makes sense to hear the words of a group of structural engineers who believe that the official 9/11 story couldn't possibly be true. So since this week's Torah portion is "Kedoshim," one of the spiritually highest parts of the Torah, and since it says "do not put a stumbling block before the blind," and since this guy argues that we are blind and have been stumbling in our so-called "war on terror," I thought it appropriate to invite him to speak, AFTER the Torah study at noon, to talk to us for twenty minutes, and then to have lunch together and anyone who wants to continue the discussion with him can, and those who don't so wish can have their own conversation! But it could prove interesting, but not as interesting as the Torah portion itself, study of which begins at 10 a.m. at 951 Çragmont ave in Berkeley (and please take the time to make something VEGETARIAN and delicious for the veggie pot-luck lunch).--Rabbi Michael Lerner

Thank you for this
