Michael Lerner needs a Tikkun

Tikkun means in “repair” and is often used among rabbinical literature to describe a repair or fix that someone needs to do in order to fix something they messed up. Whether on spiritual terms, or any other sense, a tikkun (in Yiddish it is pronounced “tikk’n”) helps to repair the wrong.

Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun, has deeply needs a tikkun now after placing himself amongst lunatic conspirators and extremists, especially Muslim ones that repeat this mantra over and over again—Lerner has said that in fact the US may be involved in the 9-11 attacks.

“I would not be surprised to learn that some branch of our government conspired either actively to promote or passively to allow the attack on 9/11,” Lerner wrote in an essay published in th

e new book, “9/11 and American Empire: Christians, Jews, and Muslims Speak Out.” Lerner added that he would also not be surprised if it turned out that the attacks were not the result of a government conspiracy. (from the Forward.com and a MUST READ)

What the bleep?!@?

This is such a serious shanda, that the tikkun should be no less than a departure from politics and leadership  . How can a Jewish leader lend his support to the most fringe elements in America (ones that often blame everything on Jews)? Its one thing when Michael Moore runs around with his shtick, but Lerner is supposed to be a Jewish leader, albeit for far left Jews, and this disastrous position undermines his credibility on other issues.
