And One More Thing

26Aug10

Effete, aloof liberals, palling around with terrorists. Someone stop this, it’s too insensitive!

Two hundred Muslims and Jews gathered in Cambridge Monday evening to share an iftar: the evening meal that breaks the fast during Ramadan.

The dinner was organized jointly by the American Jewish Committee Boston chapter (AJC) and the American Islamic Congress (AIC) in order to raise funds for victims of the flood in Pakistan.

Although the AJC and AIC have had a long-standing relationship, the event lwas the second in a series specifically geared to bringing young Jewish and Muslim professionals together. “One of the building blocks in our relationship has been a joint commitment to human rights” said Nasser Weddady, the Civil Rights Outreach Director for AIC, “We feel that human rights in general is something that has deep resonance with both communities and we see major potential for developing and exploring that angle of the relationship, which, for all intents and purposes has not been effectively leveraged in the past.”
