Jewish Muslim Solidarity Rally Banner, Post-Event (07312023)


On June 28th, 2023, a man named Salwan Momika desecrated the Quran during a police-protected protest outside the Stockholm Mosque in Sweden. Momika set fire to the holy text, causing outrage and condemnation from governments and individuals globally.

This was not an isolated event, as there have been previous incidents of Quran desecration in Sweden since 2020, including planned Quran burnings in multiple Swedish cities by activist Rasmus Paludan.This incident has sparked protests around the world, with individuals and groups expressing their condemnation around the burning of sacred texts.

One recent example is activist Ahmad Alloush, who used his platform to speak out against such acts of religious hatred by staging a protest that threatened to burn a Torah and Christian Bible.
We, Jews and Muslims together, oppose this bigotry and will not stay silent as revered religious objects are desecrated.
In response to these incidents, a virtual global Jewish-Muslim solidarity rally was held by the Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) on July 27, 2023, featuring distinguished Jewish and Muslim speakers who expressed messages of mutual respect and coexistence. The rally aimed to create a world where love overcomes hate, and the entire event is  available to watch on YouTube.
