Jews For Islam

A trawl through the internet produced the following gem. Statistics submitted by the Israeli Interior Ministry’s Population Registry for 2006 revealed that the number of Jews who convert to Islam in Israel will reach record numbers. Over the past few years, some 35 people a year have converted to Islam, but this year the number is expected to climb to 70 people. For example, this chap.

Weird, eh??
Statistics reveal, however, that Jewish women who converted to Islam after marrying Muslim men represent the majority of conversions. But it's not just Jews in Israel who are converting: See here

And try this as well.

The question is why they should wish to convert. Frankly, I’m confused. Perhaps I should seek the counsel of His Grace But I suspect even the venerable Cranmer would struggle with the complexity of the theological questions involved.

Interesting, indeed.

Concerning the possible causes, the normal distribution (bell curve) springs to mind. Since all human traits are normally distributed in the human population, everything can be expected at the extreme ends of the bell curve.

On the other hand, how do we know that such "testimonials" are not pure propaganda? Fake testimonials are not uncommon in the advertising business.

I'd say the testimonials are genuine. We are certainly talking about the "extreme ends of the bell curve".

The second has the smack of truth, the first one - hmmm.

The first chap is legit. He is something of a celebrity throughout the Arab world. You can see photos and see more of him at:
www.Jews-for-Allah.com

Yes, such a site really does exist.

Ok, but the 'Elders of Zion' comment and the jibes about the personal hygiene of the Hassidim suggest that he has been, how shall we say, given a script?

In faith, as in many areas of life, there is something uniquely vile about making abusive comments a higher priority in speaking of that which one has abandoned, rather than making a positive case for something new. What would you say of a pal who in discussing his new girlfriend was full of bile for the bunny boiler he had just split up with, while taking little time to hymn the praises of Ms New?

Given a script for sure. And the remarks about the Elders of Zion, etc is indicative of the true thinking of Islamic fundamentalists vis-a-vis Judaism. That's all quite instructive.

Did you see the video We are losing it all: Muslims want our countries on Youtube?
