On the other hand we need to put breaks on the words that depreciate the efforts of peacemakers among Jews and Muslims in the United States, who are making all out efforts to find solutions, calling it a Jewish and Muslims problem amounts to belittling their efforts. Let’s guard ourselves from such short sightedness.
I must add that I have been to several Mosques during this month of Ramadan, and was good to hear supplications seeking justice and relief to the Palestinians, but no hatred for Jews was expressed and that was the right thing to do, what a relief it was! It is a good thing in a place of worship, seek help, and seek guidance, but not propagate hate. I will be visiting a few synagogues and churches in the coming weeks and I hope to hear no hate for Muslims in their places of worship either.
