MFA Statement in Response to the Shootings

at Tree of Life Synagogue

 

A Senseless Act of Violence Calls for Unity and Civility

 

The Multifaith Alliance for Syrian Refugees (MFA) extends its deepest sympathies to the victims, families and community of the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

 

MFA stands with its long-time partner, HIAS, in condemning the anti-Semitism, xenophobia, and the anti-immigrant and anti-refugee sentiments that appear to have motivated this heinous act of hatred.

 

We must all stand firmly against the rhetoric of anger and division that has become so pervasive in our public discourse. Such language only serves to motivate, embolden and legitimize those who believe that their views justify violence against innocents. This divisiveness cannot be allowed to subsume America’s core values of diversity and tolerance.

 

In solidarity,

Multifaith Alliance for Syrian Refugess
