Tonight, Jews and Muslims united to protest Bannon
at a NY public library near Bryant Park chanting “Say it loud, say
it clear, Nazi’s are not welcome here!”
‘We must stand with our fellow Americans who may be singled out for how they look, where they’re from, who they love or how they pray,’ Jonathan Greenblatt says. ‘As Jews we know what it means to be forced to register.’
Less than a week after an election that left many minority and religious groups in the United States feeling disenfranchised, two important organizations – one Jewish and the other Muslim – announced an unusual alliance on Monday.
The American Jewish Committee and the Islamic Society of North America have teamed up to form a new national group of leading Jewish and Muslim Americans: The Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council.
In a press release, the AJC said that the new group “brings together recognized business, political and religious leaders in the Jewish and Muslim American communities to jointly advocate on issues of common concern.”
