Peace prayer for attac in HalleAntisemitismus entgegen stellen
We - Jews, Christians and Muslims of the House of One - would like to commemorate in a prayer for peace in 'Berlin's St. Mary's Church the two people murdered in Halle, their families and all those affected by the inhuman assassination of the synagogue.
The attack on the Jewish synagoge in Halle failed. Nevertheless two random passers-by died from the bullets of the right-wing attacker. In view of this inhuman hate crime in Halle, Kadir Sanci, Imam and member of the Presidium of the House of One, said: "Sri Lanka, Christchurch, Pittsburg... - I don't know what to say about these inhumanities anymore. It shocks me that these attacks on defenceless praying people do not end. On the contrary: they are coming closer, now also to us in Germany, in Halle."
Yesterday the Jewish community was the goal, tomorrow it may be Muslims or others. That must become clear to everyone. "If someone is attacked, we must therefore stand together and support them", Imam Sanci continued: "Our democracy must be strengthened and defended every day - and now again in a special way".
On Friday, 11 October, clergy from the House of One will therefore commemorate together with others the victims and all those affected within the framework of a multi-religious prayer for peace in the St. Mary's Church on Berlin's Alexanderplatz.
We cordially invite everyone to set a sign for solidarity in our open society and to pray together for peace and healing.
