Jewish Week Removes Jonathan Mark's Piece

According to one person at the Jewish Week, Jonathan Mark's piece about Reform Judaism and radical Islam has been removed from the site. 

That's a good decision.

why is that good? what are you scared of? so much for pluralism. Virtually every Orthodox Jew in the world would agree with what he wrote and you think it should censored. what a joke!

Gary--It's good because Jonathan's piece was inflammatory and an ad hominem attack. It's not censorship but responsible editing. As for what "most Orthodox Jews think" I'd ask how you know that. I've heard today from four Orthodox Jews who support my view. These generalizations just don't help.

so, if something is inflammatory then it should be censored? Did he advocate any kind of violence or threat? Did he write lies or libelous accusations against individuals?

What a bunch of babies y'all are. Can't argue against his points, so you censor him. well done.

I would imagine the "orthodox" jews that you are in touch with are not exactly the mainstream!and you couldn't get any of these fake "orthodox" jews to simply respond and argue against his points, had to force it down.

I suggest you go help your fellow cersorer in Libya before its too late!

Babies, Libya, fake orthodox Jews--you're quite the debater. In my own post I did refute some of Jonathan's points. But you, my friend, should dial back your anger. You don't want a "Reform" rabbi reminding you why the Second Temple was destroyed, do you?
