10 Images of Jewish-Muslim Unity…

I like to be positive, also when it comes to Jewish-Muslim relations, but given all the negative attention there is on the subject, it can be hard at times to keep the optimism, though – fortunately (and B”H) – things seem to be changing, slowly, or at least getting more balanced.

Therefore it’s always nice to be able to show off some of the positive examples, such as this article from the blog PopChassid, presenting the reader for 1o images of Jewish-Muslim unity:

 

We’re constantly bombarded by implicit and explicit images of the relationship that Jews and Muslims supposedly have in today’s world.  We are bombarded with the cliched reminder that we “used to get along” but recently have become enemies. We’ve almost become used to it, accepted it as some sort of reality. And, ironically, all these “interfaith” events can often cause us to feel even more disconnected.  They just don’t seem as genuine as a true connection.  It would seem the only people you would need to show such “unity” with is people you don’t get along with. Which is why we need to look deeper.  We need to look wider.  We need to see that “unity” doesn’t mean press.  It doesn’t mean “shows of support”.  It means genuine connection and giving.
