Texas Jews Prove They Have Heart!
After their mosque burned down on Saturday Muslims in Victoria Texas didn’t know what they were going to do. Fortunately the small communities Jewish population had an answer for them.
Many of the areas Muslim community were crushed to learn of the destruction at the local house of worship. The estimated 100 or so area Muslim’s were left with no pace to worship after a fire gutted their mosque around 2am on Saturday.
To their surprise the Jewish community came together and found a solution.
Victoria, Texas has a relatively small Jewish population, in total there are around 30 members at the local temple. Many of the people in the two faiths know each other. It was an easy decision to open the doors to the displaced Muslims. Temple president Robert Loeb said, “Everyone knows everybody”.
The fire is currently under investigation by federal officials but, at least the Muslim community will have a place to worship until they can rebuild.
Loeb said, “When a calamity like this happens, we have to stand together.”
Muslim leader Shahid Hashmi’s response said it all, “Jewish community members walked into my home and gave me a key to the synagogue.”
Meanwhile in la la land, the mainstream media has focused on the fire as an example of President Donald Trump’s “ban” on Muslims. Perhaps instead they should be focused on the coming together of two faiths in a time of tragedy. Two groups with different ideas and beliefs, sharing a space despite their differences. Our own government might be able to learn something here.
Wouldn’t it be refreshing for the lame stream media to focus on the good outcome instead of the negative?
Is it not just as news worthy that these two faiths have come together?
It seems to me that the world could use a little unity right now. Perhaps like these Muslim’s and Jews from Victoria, Texas have shown us there is much, much more to life than the divisions we create.
