The Muslim Community Network is dismayed and saddened that over 100 headstones were desecrated at a Jewish cemetery in Missouri yesterday. The wave of national bomb threats and hate incidents against synagogues and Jewish Community Centers across the country are unconscionable and un-American. Hate against one community is hate against all communities!
The Muslim Community Network stands today and every day with its Jewish allies against hate in all its forms. In these dark moments, we will rise as a community to stand shoulder to shoulder in word and deed to create a world where love will always trump hate.
We encourage you to donate to the Launchgood crowdfunding campaign to repair the headstones at Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery and other vandalized Jewish Community Centers. We pray that the families of those who have been directly impacted will find comfort.
“Oh mankind! We have created you from male and female and made you into nations and tribes that you may know each other (not that you may despise each other). Indeed, the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is the best in conduct. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.” – Surah al- Hujurat (49:13)
