Imam Dawud Walid and DJJ Executive Director Rabbi Alana Alpert wrote an op-ed in The Detroit News titled, "Intolerance lies below the surface in America."
From the op-ed:
"The recent attack on the synagogue shows us that hatred of Jewish people in America is not part of a horrid past that disappeared. In fact, the anti-Semitism lies below the surface in America. Americans of conscience must raise their voices against the increased hate directed towards Jewish people — the attack in Pittsburgh is the most singular bloody event against Jews in our country’s history.
The loathing that white nationalists feel for black and brown people as well as Muslims and Sikhs is intimately connected to the upsurge in hatred against Jewish Americans — none of us are white enough for white supremacy."
