Muslims Volunteer to Protect Synagogue in Norway

Writing in the Times of Israel, Stuart Winer tells us:
synagogueIn the wake of a deadly shooting attack at a synagogue in Denmark last week, a group of Norwegian Muslims intends to hold an anti-violence demonstration at an Oslo synagogue this coming weekend by forming a “peace ring” around the building.
One of the event organizers, 17-year-old Hajrad Arshad, explained that the intention was to make a clear statement that Muslims don’t support anti-Semitism.
“We think that after the terrorist attacks in Copenhagen, it is the perfect time for us Muslims to distance ourselves from the harassment of Jews that is happening,” Arshad told the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation NRK in an interview cited by The Local News website on Tuesday.
She noted that the group aimed to “extinguish the prejudices people have against Jews and against Muslims.”
Sometimes it is necessary to give credit where credit is due and young Hajrad Arshad, and his people, deserve great credit for this initiative.
If we had more Hajrad Arshad's around I would close up this blog and go write about fishing or the culinary arts.
