Meet your Muslim Neighbor

Tuesday, February 16, 2016 - 6:30pm

Sponsored By: 
The Islamic Center of Pittsburgh and Thomas Merton Center

Anti-Muslim hysteria has engulfed the media as of late, distorting facts and encouraging rampant misunderstanding about Islam. It is important now more than ever for us to show compassion for our Muslim neighbors and help stop the spread of intolerance. The Thomas Merton Center and Islamic Center of Pittsburgh have teamed up to create a potluck dinner to do just that. This is a great opportunity for people of all faiths to come together and show solidarity with Pittsburgh’s Muslim community!

Since the fall of 2015 the world has witnessed a deadly spate of attacks on Palestinians by Israeli soldiers, police, and settlers, with over 160 Palestinians killed. The violence began with tensions at Al Aqsa mosque and spread quickly beyond East Jerusalem to the West Bank, Gaza, and Israel as soldiers employed shoot-to-kill tactics, claiming that their assailants, many of them youth at checkpoints, were threatening them with knife attacks.
