Muslims Organize Fundraiser For Vandalized Jewish Cemetery

Muslims Organize Fundraiser For Vandalized Jewish Cemetery


RECENTLY, MORE THAN 200
HEADSTONES AT A JEWISH CEMETERY WERE VANDALIZED, AND WHILE COPS
CONTINUE TO INVESTIGATE WHO THE VANDALS WERE, IT TURNS OUT THAT
A GROUP OF MUSLIM ACTIVISTS GOT TOGETHER TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE
CEMETERY. NOW, AND ACTIVIST WAS THE PERSON
WHO STARTED THE FUND-RAISING WEBSITE, HER NAME IS LINDA,
ESSENTIALLY TO GET ENOUGH MONEY FOR THE CEMETERY TO HELP WITH
THOSE WHO WERE HARMED, AND THE TOMBSTONES THAT WERE
DAMAGED. AND GUESS WHAT? SHE WANTED TO RAISE ABOUT
$20,000, THEY RAISED MORE THAN THAT. LINDA SARSOUR, A MUSLIM
ACTIVIST, HAD SURPASSED ORIGINAL GOAL OF RAISING $20,000
WITHIN THREE HOURS. IN FACT, LESS THAN A DAY AFTER
LAUNCHING THE FUNDRAISER, THEY MANAGED TO RAISE $71,000. SO NOT ONLY ARE THEY GOING TO
HELP THE CEMETERY THAT WAS ATTACKED, THEY ARE ALSO
GOING TO HELP OTHER JEWISH ORGANIZATIONS THROUGHOUT THE
COUNTRY WITH THIS FUNDING. SO, IT’S GOOD NEWS AND I LOVE
SEEING THE COMMUNITY COMING TOGETHER, AND WORKING TOGETHER
WITH OTHER RELIGIOUS GROUPS IN ORDER TO PROTECT ONE ANOTHER
FROM HATE. IT’S A REALLY GOOD FEELING. YEAH, IT’S THE BEST OF AMERICA. I LOVE WHAT SHE SAID, SHE SAID,
“WE HOPE TO SEND A UNITED MESSAGE FROM THE JEWISH AND
MUSLIM COMMUNITIES.” SHE TALKED ABOUT HOW THEY ARE
UNITED, AND THAT’S ON THE FUNDRAISING PAGE THAT THEY SET
UP. SO, LOOK, A LOT OF THE TIMES ñ A
LOT OF TIMES YOU SEE THE UGLINESS OF THE INTERNET, THE
TROLLS AND ALL THAT STUFF, AND ON YOUR HAND SOMETIMES YOU
SEE HOW WONDERFUL THE INTERNET CAN BE BECAUSE IT
BRINGS US ALL TOGETHER. LINDA WAS A BIG PROPONENT OF
BERNIE SANDERS, BERNIE SANDERS WAS THE FIRST MAJOR CANDIDATE
OF MY LIFETIME THAT TALKED ABOUT PALESTINIANS AS IF THEY
WERE HUMAN BEINGS, AND EVEN OF ñ AND EVEN CARED IF THEY HAD
JOBS. SHOULDN’T WE ALL CARE ABOUT THE
WELL-BEING OF ALL HUMAN BEINGS? BUT IT WAS LIKE, BREAKING NEWS,
AND HE IS THE MOST SUCCESSFUL JEWISH PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IN
UNITED STATES HISTORY. AND BACKED UP BY MUSLIM
AMERICANS. NOW MUSLIM AMERICA IS TURNING
AROUND AND HELPING JEWS RECOVER FROM HATE CRIMES. THAT’S WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS
COUNTRY. I FEEL LIKE STORIES LIKE THIS
DON’T GET AS MUCH ATTENTION BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT AS
ATTENTION GRABBING. I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD
RATHER FOCUS ON ALL THE DOWNSIDES OF SOCIETY TODAY, ALL
THE HATEFUL STUFF THAT’S GOING ON, AND IT MAKES YOU LOSE SIGHT
OF HOW MANY GOOD PEOPLE THERE REALLY ARE IN THE COUNTRY. HOW PEOPLE THAT ARE WILLING TO
FIGHT FOR THOSE THAT ARE DISENFRANCHISED, OR ATTACKED FOR
THEIR BANKRUPT ñ FOR THEIR BACKGROUND, SKIN
COLOR, RELIGION, WHATEVER IT IS. I LOVE THIS. IT GIVES ME A LITTLE BIT OF
HOPE, SO I HOPE IT GIVES OTHER PEOPLE HOPE AS WELL. TRY TO FOCUS ON THE POSITIVES
BECAUSE THERE ARE GOOD PEOPLE OUT THERE.
