VIDEO: Muslims and Jews Vow to Stand Up for Each Other, Build Global Movement of Reconciliation

by  for Huffpo

There is a widely accepted belief that Muslims and Jews are enemies and will always remain so. However, nothing could be further from the truth.

For the past six years The Foundation for Ethnic Understanding has not only challenged this narrative, but has facilitated a global dialogue between Muslims and Jews that is taking place on all six populated continents.

This Muslim-Jewish dialogue is our annual Weekend of Twinning which encourages joint Muslim and Jewish programming on the grassroots level in every community across the world where Muslims and Jews reside.

Our efforts reveal the actual harmony that exists between these two faiths and peoples and here is a video that we produced with Unity Productions Foundation, which documents this global Muslim Jewish coalition that is vowing to stand up for one another by combating Islamophobia, Anti-Semitism and all forms of hatred.

    Just for those who dont know here are some highlingls about the Stern, Gang from Wiki

    Lehi (Hebrew pronunciation: [ˈleχi]; Hebrew: לח”י – לוחמי חרות ישראל‎ Lohamei Herut Israel – Lehi, “Fighters for the Freedom of Israel – Lehi”), commonly referred to in English as the Stern Gang,[9][10][11][12] was a militant Zionist group founded by Avraham (“Yair”) Stern in the British Mandate of Palestine.[13] Its avowed aim was forcibly evicting the British authorities from Palestine, allowing unrestricted immigration of Jews and the formation of a Jewish state. It was initially called the National Military Organization in Israel,[1] upon being founded in August 1940, but was renamed Lehi one month later.[14]

    Lehi split from the Irgun militant group in 1940 in order to continue fighting the British during World War II. Lehi initially sought alliance with Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany, offering to fight alongside them against the British in return for the transfer of all Jews from Nazi-occupied Europe to Palestine.[2] On the belief that Nazi Germany was a lesser enemy of the Jews than Britain, Lehi twice attempted to form an alliance with the Nazis.[2] During World War II it declared that it would establish a Jewish state based upon “nationalist and totalitarian principles”.[2] After Stern’s death in 1942, the new leadership of Lehi began to move it towards support of Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union.[1] In 1944 Lehi officially declared its support for National Bolshevism.[6] It said that its National Bolshevism involved an amalgamation of left-wing and right-wing political elements – Stern said Lehi incorporated elements of both the left and the right.[2] – however this change was unpopular and Lehi began to lose support as a result.[15]

    Lehi assassinated Lord Moyne, British Minister Resident in the Middle East, and made many other attacks on the British in Palestine. It was described as a terrorist organization by the British authorities.[16] Lehi assassinated United Nations mediator Folke Bernadotte and was banned by the Israeli government.[17] The United Nations Security Council called the assassins “a criminal group of terrorists,”[18] and Lehi was similarly condemned by Bernadotte’s replacement as mediator, Ralph Bunche.[19] Lehi and Irgun were jointly responsible for the massacre in Deir Yassin. Israel granted a general amnesty to Lehi members on 14 February 1949. In 1980, Israel instituted a military decoration in “award for activity in the struggle for the establishment of Israel,” the Lehi ribbon.[20] Former Lehi leader Yitzhak Shamir became Prime Minister of Israel in 1983

    The attempts to join with the Nazis is news to me espicially with all the loons trying to claim Islamic involvement with Hitler . Also the killed a UN peace envoy ! Explain that away FFC!

    Plus I found this

    In 1947, the Zionist Stern Gang sent several letter bombs to President Harry Truman in the White House. They were intercepted by White House mail room workers, who were on alert because the Stern Gang had posted similar bombs to various British officials in the previous year

    Want to explain the reasoning behind this military target FFC?

    Or how about this

    June 4, 1947, London. The terrorist Jewish Stern gang sent letter bombs to
    high British governmental officials. Eight letter bombs containing powdered
    gelignite explosive were discovered in London. Recipients included Ernest Bevan,
    Anthony Eden, Prime Minister Attlee and Winston Churchill.

    I haven’t had problems with Discus so far but over the last couple of weeks I haven’t even been able to sign in to post a comment or reply to one. Since I’m often already logged-in I’ve not had reason to sign in. But nowadays for some reason, I am neither logged in nor able to log in.

    I think he meant his god Hashish, as in Zionjuana. He has clearly been clocking some serious devotional time.

  • The greenmantle

    So trying to Bomb 10 Downing St was justified as was sending letter bombs to civilians?
    Will you sing the same song if the Knesset gets bombed?

    ISNA ? nonsense…they are a outlier…

    What is your obsession with Mecca and Medina ? I do recall there was a temple that turned out be a front for “money exchange”…we would not want that again, do we ?

  • Christian-Friend

    Given the fact most of your comments are facist themselves, I’m surprised you’re not banned from this website.

  • AM24

    I’m not sorry about Daniel Pearl and I take back my apology. What happened to him was little in comparison to what his fellow zionists did to Pakistan through bootlickers like musharraf.

  • Reynardine

    You do not speak for me.

  • Guess

    “I have wondered if he is really a muslim seeking to defame Isreal”

    It may be, but I think the zionist project and whatever else next bite it takes of Palestine as “its own” defame itself long ago without the help of anyone really. This guy seem to me representing an advance case of extremist zionism dementia.

    Hash’em? Those textured soy protein things that are supposed to extend your leftover meat and potatoes? Yep. Hash’em, a curse on whoever eats ‘ em
