quote by Shams Tabrizi

If you look around, you can find a face of God in each thing, because He is not hidden in a church, in a mosque, or a synagogue, but everywhere. As there is no one who lives after seeing him, there is also no one dying after seeing him. Who finds Him, stays forever with him.

The fear of being uncovered, the fear of being made known for their wickedness is what is driving the ADL and that Synagogue of Satan, false Jews to pin the label on me as an anti-Semite. This is something they feel they must do in order to cover the evil that they have done or are a party to.

I was raised in a reform synagogue.
