Michael Lerner is More than A Useful Idiot?

Rabbi Lerner's attendance at the Saudi "World Conference on Dialogue" is something I would normally just make a snarky, cynical comment about in passing. But his account in the Huff Post is worth reading and thinking about. Check it here.

I am not crazy about alot of the positions he has taken over the years. I think he has often demonstrated a Jesse Jackson level of self promotion. (Writing fan letters to yourself in Tikkun? WTF?) But since the mainstream debate is on the issue of "when do we bomb Iran", it is worth thinking, THINKING about what's going ON.
