From the Desk of Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi, Chairman of Shura Council
February 24, 2017
To the Leaders and our Neighbors of the Jewish Community in Southern California:
The Islamic Shura Council of Southern California stands in solidarity with the American Jewish community in denouncing the horrible vandalism at the Jewish cemetery in St. Louis, Missouri, as well as the bomb threats to the Jewish community centers across the country. We hope that the law enforcement will soon find those who are responsible of these crimes and bring them to justice.
We condemn Anti-Semitism and all expressions of violence and hate here and everywhere in the world. We must remain strong in our conviction for unity, for when one of us is targeted by hate, we are all targeted.
Dr. Muzammil H. Siddiqi
