    The Rabbi, and Imam represent the true face of Judaism and Islam. As a young Arab American growing in the United States, I was always welcomed in Jewish homes, Coached by Jewish professors, releived of traffic tickets by two Jewish judges, and given campus employment by a wonderful Jewish lady who treated me like her own kids, sharing with me the way her family immigrated to America after surviving the Holocaust, teaching me many good things, esepcially on how to treat others, and offering me help anytime I needed it. Later, in graduate school this time around, two Jewish professors mentored me and helped me. One said to me once: "We are the family of Abraham. Weather Jewsih, or Arab, a blod that is foolishly shed, is still the blood of Abraham". To the Rabbi, and Imam, God belss you and your congregation. We need more of you. Please go to the Middle East and tell the family of Abraham to become sane.
