The Union for Progressive Judaism (UPJ) in Australia, New Zealand and Asia is shocked by the terrorist attack on a mosque in Egypt that has resulted in 300 deaths and severe injury to many worshippers including several children.   

A spokesperson said: “We associate ourselves with the following statement issued by our parent body, the World Union for Progressive Judaism:

The World Union for Progressive Judaism (WUPJ), reprepsenting 1.8 million Progressive, Reform and Liberal Jews around the world, expresses its deepest sorrow at the horrific massacre of over 300 people, including many children, at a mosque in the Sinai region of Egypt.

Any form of violence on innocent people is abhorrent but to attack and murder people at prayer is an act of unimaginable evil.

We send our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims and prayers for healing to the injured.”

    I have searched the web for similar statements from any Islamic organizations or groups in Australia after
    Similar Muslim atrocities perpetrated against innocent Jewish victims in Europe or Isrsel .
    I guess Jews don’t expect any reciprocity for respect from Muslims we Jews are so humble .
