Muslims Rally To Save Synagogue From Closure

Reminds me of the verses of the Quran that say to Protect the churches, synagogues and mosques

“God defends the believers but He does not love any of the treacherous, ungrateful ones. Permission to take up arms is hereby granted to those who are attacked; they have suffered injustice. God has all the power to give victory to those who were unjustly expelled from their homes only because they said, “God is our Lord.” Had it not been for God’s repelling some people through the might of the others, the monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques in which God is very often worshipped would have been utterly destroyed. God shall certainly help those who help Him. He is All-powerful and Majestic. He will certainly help those who, if given power in the land, will worship God through prayer, pay the poor-due, enjoin others to do good, and prevent them from committing evil. The end result of all affairs is with God. (The Pilgrimage 22: 38 – 41)”

Remember, that God also says in the Quran that if a person, irrespective of their faith, is not hostile to Islam then we should treat them justly.

“God does not forbid you respecting those who have not made war against you on account of (your) religion, and have not driven you forth from your homes, that you show them kindness and deal with them justly; surely God loves the doers of justice. God only forbids you respecting those who made war upon you on account of (your) religion, and drove you forth from your homes and backed up (others) in your expulsion, that you make friends with them, and whoever makes friends with them, these are the unjust.”
