Just to add to that...

US Muslims offer to guard Jewish sites following spate of attacks

A single tweet by an American Muslim marine who offered to stand guard at Jewish cemeteries following a wave of anti-Semitic attacks has sparked a wave of similar offers of solidarity on social media.

The offer by Tayyib Rashid, who calls himself "The Muslim Marine" on Twitter, followed a series of attacks against Jewish cemeteries and threats against synagogues, which some have linked to the embolding of far right movements since Donald Trump was elected president.

In the weeks following Trump’s inauguration, Jewish Community Centres (JCC) in the United States reported a spike in the number of anti-Semitic attacks and harassment across the country.

A number of Jewish organisations have also claimed that Trump has not been vocal enough in condemning anti-Semitism.

Now, American Muslims on Twitter are offering to stand guard over Jewish sites in solidarity, and to help prevent further attacks. Rashid started off the stream of offers on social media, and received hordes of support for his "kindness".

Fellow Muslims followed suit offering their support, including Emmy Award-Winning TV broadcaster Momin Bhatti

What a wonderful gesture by all those people to do that.
