Muslims, Jews commemorate Paris victims together


This video from the USA says about itself:

‘Why Don’t Moderate Muslims Condemn Terrorism?’ – They Do.

10 January 2015

Every time an extremist who is Muslim commits an act of terrorism, people ask where the moderate Muslim voices condemning violence are.

(Interestingly, as a Jew, I don’t usually get asked to condemn extremism when it is perpetuated by Jewish fundamentalists like Baruch Goldstein, who shot 29 praying Muslims do death, and injured 125, at the Cave of the Patriarchs, or Yigal Amir, who killed Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.) And the same thing is happening following this week’s deplorable, pathetic, and tragic killing of 12 people at the offices of the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

NOS TV in the Netherlands reports today that this afternoon, 14:15, a demonstration to commemorate the victims of the Paris violence will start at the Al Kabir mosque in the Pijp neighbourhood in Amsterdam; it will finish at Casa Migrante. Amsterdam synagogues and mosques organise this demonstration together.

In The Hague today, Muslims and Jews will together present flowers at the French embassy.

Analysis of the Paris violence by the Angry Arab blog: here.

Lebanon observed a day of mourning Friday for 43 people killed in a a pair of suicide bombings that rocked the southern Beirut working-class suburb of Bourj el-Barajneh on Thursday evening. The savage bombings, which targeted a busy commercial and residential street at the peak of evening rush hour, also left at least another 239 people wounded, according to the Lebanese Health Ministry, and the death toll is expected to rise. The first bomb was detonated outside the entrance to a school. The street surrounding it was filled with families gathering after the end of the workday. The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claimed responsibility for the attack, which included a third suicide bomber who was killed in the blasts before he could detonate his explosives. It was the bloodiest attack that has been seen in Lebanon since the end of its 15-year civil war in 1990: here.

  1. As spoken the Muslim spokes person is air brushed away? why because it entertains the minds of not only establishment also the public? the forces that govern us need to divide to stay in power and to divert attention from who the terrorists are?
