    Kansas City Muslims stand with Jewish community
    April 13, 2014

    The Muslim community of Greater Kansas City is deeply shocked and saddened by the horrific and tragic shootings which resulted in deaths and injuries. We are deeply distressed by this cowardly act which targeted innocent people.

    Muslims have always stood shoulder to shoulder during perilous times that our nation has faced. These attacks do nothing but strengthen our resolve to fight back such cowardly acts and unite us more. Our prayers go out for the fallen victims and to the Jewish community in Greater Kansas City. May the families of the victims have the forbearance and may the inflicted recover from their injuries quickly.

    We also like to commend our law enforcement teams for apprehending the culprit so quickly before he could hurt more people. We are confident that justice will be served.

  2. Bet that homeless statue of Jesus doesn’t remain there long. How dare someone offend these rich people and remind them that there are actual people out there that are suffering do to no fault of their own. Hey wait, didn’t Jesus himself say something about it being easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than to enter heaven? But the rich have that covered, they actually believe that because they are rich that they are the ones going to heaven instead of the poor unemployed, homeless folks who MUST BE sinners to be so poor or disabled or whatever. Boy, do they have a surprise waiting for them!
