Muslims And Jewish Unite

While not all right wingers are racists, most of the racists are on the right wing and the right wing has been empowered by the Brexit vote in the UK and Donald Trump's election victory in America so they have been feeling braver to spit forth their bile and it is Muslim's once again who are taking the brunt of the vitriol.
It has been a tough time being a Muslim over the last decade or so, the small minded and even smaller brained looking to blame the whole religion for almost all of the world's ills so it is great to see a news story being aired that actually shows Muslims in a good light.
After over 150 tombstones in a Jewish cemetery were vandalised this weekend in Missouri, two Muslim's started a campaign amongst their community to raise $20,000 to repair the damage but actually raised a total of $57,000.
The organisers said that there aim was to show: 'solidarity with the Jewish-American community to condemn this horrific act of desecration. 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, desecration, and violence'.
With all the anti-Muslim shamefully being pumped out by the White House and the racist rhetoric coming from those who feel they are now free to shout their ignorance, we need more stories like this to show that Muslims are not the enemy, ignorance and intolerance very much are.
