Anti-Semitism Insults the Tenets of All Faiths

We the undersigned unequivocally condemn the recent increase of anti Semitic assaults in our country and most recently the desecration of a historic Jewish cemetery in University City, Missouri. We believe that anti Semitism insults the tenets of all faiths and that we must all stand in solidarity when any community is under attack. Islam teaches, “God created humankind of one blood.” Thus we are all blood brothers and sisters who share a foundational respect for one another.
History has taught us that hatred against one community does not end with that one group, but continues to inflict harm upon all groups deemed as “other”. The desecration in the Jewish cemetery damaged many monuments of Holocaust survivors. That tragic chapter in history should remind us that verbal violence quickly becomes heinous acts of destruction. We of many faiths stand together as members of one human family.
