Muslims in Norway vow to protect Oslo synagogue!
-Dr. Abdul Ruff Colachal
Islam teaches humanity to forget the harm an enemy has done to you and come forward to help even your enemy when in trouble. God shall protect such humans!
Jews have harmed Muslims and are being used by other enemies of Islam to target Muslims and defame Islam. However, Muslims will have to follow the footsteps of their beloved holy Prophet Muhammad (SAS) who is one of the most generous human chosen by God to be His final Prophet on earth to convey God’s message to humanity.
In a show of solidarity with the Jewish community, a group of Muslims in Norway plan to form a human 'peace ring' around a synagogue in Oslo.
Muslims worldwide know too well the way the Israeli regime kills Palestine Muslims, including children in Gaza Palestine. They also know how the Zionist criminal regime uses it military to attack the Palestinians off and on and how it shields the Jewish criminals wherever they are.
However, humanism crosses iron borders and the same makes Muslims feel for fellow humans. Thousands of besieged Palestinians died in the recent Gaza attack by Israeli military, sworn to kill every Palestinian.
Muslims in Norway want to show that religion doesn't have to be a barrier to peace. In the wake of last weekend’s deadly attack at a Denmark synagogue, a group of Norwegian Muslims are planning an anti-violence demonstration to be held on February 21 Saturday – the Jewish Sabbath – at a synagogue in Oslo.
Indeed, even as Israeli attack on Gaza strip goes unabated, anti-Semitism also appears to be on the rise in France and other parts of Europe. The shootings in Copenhagen, believed to be the work of a lone gunman, resulted in two dead, including a Jewish security guard at the synagogue. Jews were also among the victims of the Islamist gunmen involved in the similar attacks in Paris a month earlier.
The idea is to extinguish the prejudices people have against Jews and against Muslims by forming a human “peace ring” around the temple, Ms. Hajrad Arshad, one of the event’s organizers, told Norway’s state broadcaster NRK in an interview cited by news site The Local. “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,” Ms. Arshad said.
Recent reports also show that a Jewish man walking around Paris in traditional dress can expect to be taunted and threatened by passersby, and youths in one French suburb took it upon themselves to desecrate about 300 Jewish graves.
At the same time, a growing number of Jews are leaving the European Union for Israel, according to the Israeli Ministry for Immigrant Absorption. Leaders in the region have tried to soothe the tension. French Prime Minister Manuel Valls has told his Jewish citizens, “France is wounded with you and France does not want you to leave.”
Following the attacks in Copenhagen, The Guardian reported that Denmark’s Prime Minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, acknowledged: “We have tried the ugly taste of fear and powerlessness which terror hopes to create.” But, she added, “[w]e will defend our democracy and we will defend Denmark at any time.”
There have been rays of hope. A Muslim man was hailed as the hero of the attack on the Paris kosher supermarket in January: Employee Lassana Bathily saved hostages by letting them hide in the store freezer when the gunman came in.
In Denmark, tens of thousands took to the streets the February 15 after the shootings, singing John Lennon's "Imagine" in what was both a commemoration of the victims and a show of solidarity with the country's Muslim minority.
And in a somewhat unexpected turn – the leader of Oslo’s Jewish community at first said that he would support the event only if at least 30 Muslims promised to attend – nearly 800 people have said they will attend the planned “peace ring” in Norway.
Islam means humanism and peace. Islam is about protecting all brothers and sisters, regardless of which religion they belong to, the page reads, Islam is about rising above small mindedness, above hate and never sinking to the same level as the haters. Islam is about defending each other.
Called by terrorists by Israel and western world, Muslims have demonstrated that they are the best humans.
Norwegian Muslims have shown the path of true brotherhood, real Islamic faith to all.
Does any Jew in Israel or any Jewish congressman in USA who fund and promote Zionist crimedom in Mideast, listen to this? Will they change their criminal mentality any time in the near future?
