Muslim Activists Raised Funds To Repair The Destroyed Jewish Cemetery & The Jews Can’t Stop Admiring Their Gesture

It does not take much to be a human being with feelings to help someone else. It is easy to be a human, empathize with the sufferings of other human beings and approaching towards doing better for them is all that the world needs today.

When there’s a call to take action for humanity, one must put all differences aside; no kind of sexual orientation, religious differences and alike matters should be kept in mind when we have to stand for humanity. After all, how can we stay in harmony and peace when our fellow humans are suffering?

Recently, a Jewish cemetery in St. Louis, Missouri in the U.S. was destroyed during the time when Donald Trump’s supporters led a support rally and some groups around the same area led their support for Trump. Anti-Trump desperadoes committed the outrageous act in retaliation. Besides generally, Jews are being targeted in the United States. More than 200 gravestones were damaged in the Chesed Shel Emeth cemetery.

Where some men just want to disrupt the safety and security of people, there are some people who are combining remarkable efforts to restore the mayhem caused by the barbaric acts of the convicted groups.

Muslim activists, Linda Sarsour and Tarek El-Massidi have begun a crowd funding campaign to repair the destroyed Jewish cemetery in St. Louis which was destroyed over the weekend.

It aimed at raising about $20,000 to meet the expenses. But the numbers skyrocketed in over 3 hours! The campaign raised more than 4 times its target – $91,000.

Here is what the organizers of the campaign had to say:

“We are overjoyed to reach our goal. Any additional funds raised in this campaign will assist other vandalized Jewish centers. Muslim Americans stand in solidarity with the Jewish-American community to condemn this horrific act of desecration. Through this campaign, we hope to send a united message from the Jewish and Muslim communities that there is no place for this type of hate, desecration, and violence in America.”

The Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence acknowledged the efforts and showed up at the cemetery himself to carry out the proceeding work.

“I must tell you the people of Missouri are inspiring the nation by your love and care of this place, for the Jewish community in Missouri and I want to thank you for that inspiration.”

Such a thoughtful act carried out by these people. Surely they have managed to send out a great message and maintain a good image of Muslims for the whole world to see.
