Imams stand in solidarity with those affected by Pittsburgh shooting

A 46 year old man killed 11 people in a  in a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday 27th October 2018. His motive? He was angry at Jews for helping Muslim refugees flee to safety in America.

In posts on Gab, the social media network favoured by white supremacists,  Bowers wrote that HIAS wants “to bring in hostile invaders to dwell among us.” Another white supremacist’s post on Gab that Bowers reposted read: “It’s the filthy EVIL jews Bringing the Filthy EVIL Muslims into the Country!! Stop the kikes then Worry About the Muslims!”

His attack has brought together the Muslim and Jewish communities in their fight against hatred.


Members of the Imams Council of the Michigan Muslim Community Council lined the stage during an awards dinner to offer condolences to those killed and injured in the shooting at Tree of Life synagogue and vigils are being held to show solidarity with Pittsburgh. Our thoughts and prayers are with all effected.
