In the wake of Trump’s victory, Jewish and Muslim organizations form an unusual alliance

In the wake of an election that has minority groups worried about the future, two influential organizations have formed an unexpected alliance.

According to Haaretz, the American Jewish Committee and the Islamic Society of North America have teamed up to form The Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council.

A press release says that the group aims to brings together “recognized business, political and religious leaders in the Jewish and Muslim American communities to jointly advocate on issues of common concern.”

From Haaretz:

The co-chairs of the 31-member council are Stanley Bergman, CEO of the Henry Schein healthcare company, and Farooq Kathwari, president and CEO of the Ethan Allen furniture company.

Among its initial “action items,” the press release said, will be to “develop a coordinated strategy to address anti-Muslim bigotry and anti-Semitism in the U.S.” and to “protect and expand the rights of religious minorities” in the country.

Former senator Joseph Lieberman, who was the Democratic vice presidential candidate in 2000, is among some of the more well-known names in the organization.

On the other hand, I appologize, but I do not subscribe to your entire strategy, all be it exhilarating none the less. It looks to everybody that your remarks are actually not totally rationalized and in actuality you are generally yourself not wholly certain of the assertion. In any event I did enjoy reading it.
