ANALYSIS/OPINION:

As a Muslim I condemn the cruel recent vandalism on a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia (“Outpouring of community help for vandalized Jewish cemetery,” Web, Feb. 28). Ahmadi Muslims, of which I am one, are guided by the khalifa of Islam, Hazart Mirza Masoor Ahmad. He reminds us how the Prophet Muhammad was against all forms of anti-Semitism and how he treated both Jews and Christians with love and respect. It with this guidance that a group of Muslims went to the cemetery and helped our Jewish brothers with repairing some headstones in Philadelphia.

We will always stand in solidarity with our Jewish neighbors and offer them any support they need, as all Philadelphians do.
