Of course not at Northwood and Pinner Liberal Synagogue because everyone would have vacated the building if we had gone past 10 minutes but the results of our Rabbinic Team's collusion for NPLS' Civic Service is to be found at http://www.npls.org.uk/Sermons/New/Civic%20Service%202011.html

A taste of all 3:

"The Danes do it once, the English twice and the French three times. And the Jews do it like everyone else."

"Multiculturalism, however is not the natural state of things and must be artificially created. British colonialism tried to anglicise and homogenise the different constituents of the Empire, and its missionaries sought to replace native religions with Christianity."

"Our neighbours and the authorities have provided us as a Jewish Community, to live in freedom and harmony with our neighbours. You have provided us with the foundation to play a full and active role in the Community, to fulfil the prophetic pledge to be a ‘light to the nations.’"

Yes, that wicked old British Empire, eh - the temerity of the Brits, outlawing native practices like thuggee and suttee and female infanticide ...

Indeed so, Yvetta.
Multiculturalism, on the other hand, has given us Islamic schools openly preaching antisemitism on British soil. The people who promoted it and have created the current situation in this country, namely the 'Labour' governments after 1997, are traitors who should be hanged.

"Multiculturalism has thus been a grand effort to conquer the hearts and minds of our citizenry, and it has largely succeeded. .... In the media and political discourse we constantly hear the tenets of multiculturalism come into question. We feel multiculturalism crumble as Islamophobia becomes more socially acceptable."

What politically correct drivel. Even Trevor Phillips said that multiculturalism is not working. And "Islamophobia becomes socially acceptable" is the PC liberal way of saying "It's wrong to point out Islamic extremism." No it's not.

What a grand old day it'll be when these Liberal rabbis make a loud clear sermon in support of Medinat Israel for once.

Crap, by the way, rabbi.
The British had a strict policy of never attempting to convert people from their own religions - they only missionised heathens (animists) in Africa. They left Hindus and Muslims, etc alone.
