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.

I Stand With American Muslims Against Bigotry

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

I Stand with Dr. Khalidi, and with You

My mother was a Holocaust survivor, and she absolutely rejected using
the Holocaust as an excuse to dehumanize Palestinians, Arabs and
Muslims. I will not tolerate anti-Arab or anti-Muslim bigotry any
more than I will tolerate anti-Semitism. Yours in friendship, Maia

I stand beside the Muslim communities world wide who are threatened and harassed by the fear-mongering and hatred of Western governments. Those of us who have known persecution of the same kind must be the first to protest against Islamophobia wherever it is fund. Never again!

We need to open our minds and educate ourselves on the world that is out there. As the lyrics go from Alan Jackson’s song: ‘We’re All Gods Children’Here comes a Baptist, here comes a Jew There goes a Mormon and a Muslim tooI see a Buddhist and a HinduI see a Catholic and I see you. We’re all god’s children God Bless The Turners –

 
We stand with you!

We stand with you!

Lorri and Dan E say no to anti-Muslim and anti-Arab bigotry.

We Stand With You pic

I am grateful to stand with you in this campaign against hate and fear mongering of Arab & Muslim Americans. Discrimination in any shape or form is a crime against all of humanity. Stand with me, walk with me, join hands with me, break bread with me, in working for a more loving and kind world. In Peace & Love (& in my Muslim/Jewish PeaceWalk shoes…), I bid you all Salams, Shalom, Paz, Peace…

 

When they seek to divide us, we will not succumb to bigotry, hate nor fear.

we stand with you

I am a Jew from Lebanon, and have many times experienced anti-Arab racism
first-hand at airports, both in the US and in Israel.

I will not stay silent as this poison spreads. To my Arab and Muslim friends

I say: we stand with you.

Rejecting Bigotry against Arabs and Muslims

my photo

My name is Brian Brotman. My photo is attached.

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.

 
in solidarity

The current anti-Arab, anti-Muslim idiocy is the mirror image of
anti-Semitism — and it comes from some of the same people. Extremists don’t
speak for everybody. I am proudly Jewish. I have personal, physical
experience of anti-Semitism, and it is vile to treat other people with that
kind of prejudice. It has to stop.

NO to racism against Muslims and Arabs.
