American Muslims have raised more than $120,000 since Saturday for the families of those killed and injured in the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, in a demonstration of interfaith solidarity.
“We wish to respond to evil with good, as our Islamic faith teaches us, and send a powerful message of compassion to the Jewish community – our Abrahamic cousins,” said Tarek El-Messidi, director of CelebrateMercy.
“Through this campaign, we hope to send a united message from the Jewish and Muslim communities that there is no place for this type of hate and violence in America or anywhere worldwide. ”
The Islamic Center of Pittsburgh will distribute funds to affected families in consultation with the Tree of Life synagogue, where the attack took place. The aim is to help with immediate needs such as funeral expenses and medical bills, said El-Messidi.
Nation of Islam leader, liberal anti-Semite, Louis Farrakhan, who is buddies with Clinton’s and Obama’s, is not going to like this act of charity.
It is very bold for this Muslim group to do this, they risk blowback from other very anti-Semitic Muslim groups.
I give them high marks for their bravery and charity on this.
As usual you see the bad side of every good thing.
How much have you contributed?
Come down off your Colorado high.
I complimented them and gave a common sense warning against liberal anti-Semites that may not like what they are doing.
Congratulating for good and warning against possible evil blowback is Very positive.
No Colorado high here, never, ever used the stuff. Why do you continue to make false claims against anyone that disagrees with you? Isn’t that a sin in your book?
I was being funny, but I forgot liberals banned humor.
Let me know how you find anything about the Pittsburgh tragedy humorous.
I found your insane reaction to my comment humorous.
