Jews and Muslims United Against Ban: I believe the children are the future



A Muslim and a Jewish father had never met before bringing their children to O'Hare International Airport Monday to join in a protest of President Donald Trump's immigration ban. But after a photograph showing their son and daughter interacting went viral, they decided to bring their families together next week for dinner to celebrate peace.
...

Bendat-Appell brought his son to the airport after his weekly swimming lesson to help show the boy how to stand up for what they believe in. The boy's maternal grandparents were Holocaust survivors who spent time in refugee camps, Bendat-Appell said. And as a rabbi at the Institute for Jewish Spirituality in New York, Bendat-Appell said he believes strongly in using history to guide actions.
...

"I know the tension between the Jews and the Muslims. People think we hate each other. But we're not fighting. When we come next to each other we can have normal conversations," Yildirim said. "We can promote the peace together."

When the children jumped off their father's shoulders, Adin happily approached the little girl and asked her name. Meryem, a bit shy, managed a "hello" before the fathers exchanged phone numbers.

We need more of this, and less smashing, bashing, banning and spray-tanning.

1. Man that really pulls at the heartstrings

The same way it did when that senators young daughter just happened to be in the audience at a hillary rally. She asked Hillary a question and Hillary was so happy she spoke up to ask the question.

3. Concerning the Victoria Texas Mosque

I am friends with a number of the Democrats in Victoria. This story makes me smile http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/victoria-islamic-centre-mosque-fire-texas-jews-give-key-synagogue-muslims-worship-gofundme-a7556331.html

Jewish people in a small Texas city handed Muslim worshippers the keys to their synagogue after the town's only mosque was destroyed in a fire.

The Victoria Islamic Centre burned down on Saturday and had previously been burgled—the cause is being investigated by federal officials.

But the town's Muslim population will not be without a place to worship while their building is reconstructed, thanks to their Jewish neighbours.

Robert Loeb, the president of Temple Bnai Israel, told Forward: "Everyone knows everybody, I know several members of the mosque, and we felt for them. When a calamity like this happens, we have to stand together.

5. This Issac vs. Ishmael family feud should have been over a long time ago.

 

Let's hope more people like these can get that reality out to the rest of their respective camps.

13. If Muslims believe children are the future why do they dress them as suicide bombers?




It looks like the future is going to be a real blast.

20. And you'll judge the millions of innocents by the actions of the few.

The Muslims you and I know are not terrorists. They are not violent. They don't hate America. They are good people who love their family and their country.
