Sounds like the man was polite and upfront. Why not ask him to join a farbreingen instead?

Thank you for taking the time to warn us. Especially at a time that summer is approaching and the streets will be emptier. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING. If you see a child, bachur, man or woman in a suspicious situation please act on your instincts or wait around to see if they need your help. We need to take care of each other.

This guy has been featured on these sites b4. I think I ran into him (or his predecessor) almost almost 50 years ago in Eretz Yisrael where he was calm and collected as people ripped up his materials and threw them at him.

Is this the same guy I ran into in Eretz Yisrael in 1973. He’s been on these news sites before. Maddeningly calm and collected.

He’s probably just trying to get a token Orthodox Jew into his discussion group so that his “comparative religion” work has Judaism represented. Not saying anybody should join him, but let’s not make this any more than it is.

It is what it is

If that we’re the case he would have disclosed that information at some point in time…which he supposedly did not do! Imagine if would’ve been speaking to a boy that has questions about his own beliefs? This is not good, and must be exposed..so thank you for doing so.

Watch out for the nice one

It has been my experience about someone
starting a conversation with you. It begins
with something like ordinary world news, health
topic, etc. Then this person steers the topic to
Israel or religion.

You hear all sorts of wonderful things about
Jews, Israel, etc. Makes you feel so flattered.
Finally is the “punch line”: Yushka.
