In recent weeks, over 28 million copies of the virulently anti-Islam movie Obsession have been distributed to people across the country–including every pastor and rabbi in America; the words “Muslim” and “Arab” have become synonymous with “Terrorist”; and now many openly state that being a Muslim-American or Arab-American disqualifies one from holding elected office in this country.

A strong democracy requires a majority that stands up for the minority, refusing to remain silent when others fuel the fires of division and hatred. We are appalled by the recent escalation of demonizing attacks against Arabs and Muslims. These are attacks on people we are proud to call our neighbors, colleagues, loved ones and fellow citizens. As Jews and other people of faith, we know too well the price when others remain silent. To our Arab and Muslim friends, we say we stand with you. Click here for more..

As people committed to a just peace between Israelis and Palestinians, just as we condemn Muslim extremists who demonize Jews or Christians, we also reject efforts by Christian and Jewish right-wing extremists to stigmatize all Arabs and Muslims in an effort to build support for unfair policies in the Middle East. It is in our interest as Jews, as Americans and as human beings to end Israel’s unlawful occupation of the Palestinians, and to fully recognize each other’s humanity, regardless of religion, skin color or ethnicity. Close box…

We refuse to be enemies.

We Stand With You

I wholeheartedly support your campaign. Hatred and fear mongering =
violates not only biblical and democratic values of equality, justice =
and peace but also causes unspeakable suffering of the victims.

I stand with you

As someone who has lost a close family member to terrorism (London =
Bombings 2005 7/7) I would stand by all Muslims who have suffered from =
negative publicity since 9/11 and 7/7. The vast majority of Muslims =
stand with us and condemn these acts…so in turn we must stand by =
them…there is only one race…the human race.

yours sincerely=

Here’s my blurb:

Judaism simply does not permit racism or any kind of oppression. We have a long proud  and sacred history of standing in solidarity oppressed peoples. To turn away from that now is to spit on the graves of our ancestors.

Merhaba, salaam aleikum, shalom,

May there be peace in the hearts of all peoples, may we strive for peace
and not for war.

Roaa Peretz and Benyounes Elbasri join the Weekly Vigil Against the
Occupation, in Philadelphia, PA, in 2006. The two met in Heaven, a
cafe in Masstricht, after Roaa spent a month in Israel, meeting with
leaders of the Israeli anti-occupation movement. They recently
married in ‘Paradise,’ St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands.

The Hebrew sign is from Leviticus: You shall have one standard for
stranger and citizen alike; for I the Lord am your God.

I stand for fairness to all regardless of religious or sexual orientation. I
am an atheist.

Peace

I am tired of fear. I am tired of hate. I am tired. But it doesn’t mean I don’t love my neighbor. It doesn’t mean I won’t help my neighbor. It does mean I have had enough of narrow minds. Not that I blame them. that is what they have been taught. ‘Time for new lessons.Peace Salaam Shalom
