Muslim Council of Calgary Strongly Condemns Antisemitism

1 February 2018
THE MUSLIM COUNCIL OF CALGARY DISAVOWS THE VIEWS OF THE WEBSITE MUSLIMS IN CALGARY.

The Muslim Council of Calgary strongly condemns all forms of antisemitism, direct and implicit, and considers it extremely harmful to building a society based upon mutual respect and human dignity. Such contemptible views undermine MCC’s desire to create better relationships with the Calgary Jewish community as well as with other religious communities in Calgary.

Muslim Council of Calgary would like to once again disassociate itself from the Facebook group and website "Muslims in Calgary" that keep on publishing controversial information leading to the feeling of hurt and displeasure within the community. The "Muslims in Calgary" website is not representative of the Muslim Council of Calgary, its affiliate mosques, or the majority of Muslims in Calgary and their views. We hope the police will investigate any reports of anti-antisemitism as we would expect investigations into Islamophobia.

With the beginning of the UN World Interfaith Harmony Week tomorrow, MCC will be looking to build bridges and stronger relationships with our neighbours of Jewish, Christian and other faiths and hope to spread peace and harmony in the community. It is the hope and desire of the Muslim Council of Calgary that truthful understandings of religious beliefs and practices will lead to the establishment of interfaith harmony and goodwill that uplifts all the citizens of Calgary.
