THIS. MOTHERFREAKING THIS.
Coming from a Jew…Islamaphobia is out of hand in the United States and in the rest of the world. When I was the President of Hillel, I came into contact with many people from differing religious perspectives and have never had anything but good things to say about my Muslim friends. The world needs greater interfaith dialogue and needs to stop listening to everything the media says about another religion as a whole. Al Qaeda does not speak for the entire Muslim population, just as the Westboro Baptist Church does not speak for the entire Christian population, just as those crazy Orthodox Jews who would pose with Ahmadinejad, wearing anti Israel pins do not speak for the entire Jewish population. We need to build on our similarities, not our differences! Stand together!
