JCMA Statement – To Our Christian Brothers and Sisters | Jewish Christian Muslim Association of Australia
Statement Issued 28th July 2016 Jewish Christian Muslim Association of Australia We were deeply distressed to hear of the attack in the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray and the brutal killing of Father Jacques Hamel in his church. This is an affront to all people of religion and we join together as Jews, Christians and Muslims to condemn this violent attack in a place of peace and prayer. Know that we share in your pain and sorrow. The victims and their families and friends are all in our prayers. We unequivocally condemn those who carried out this attack in the name of God and reject their toxic distortion of Islam. Gathering this weekend for our annual conference, we stand together in the prayer that our love and compassion will overcome bigotry and hatred. May the blessing of Shalom, Peace, Salaam speedily grace our planet.
