A positive development

I find this a bit of good news:

Trump Effect: Jewish and Muslim Organizations Form New Alliance

A new Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council will work to protect religious minorities' rights as well as other 'issues of common concern.'

by Judy Maltz 

"Less than a week after an election that left many minority and religious groups in the United States feeling disenfranchised, two important organizations – one Jewish and the other Muslim – announced an unusual alliance on Monday.

The American Jewish Committee and the Islamic Society of North America have teamed up to form a new national group of leading Jewish and Muslim Americans: The Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council."


The rest is behind a paywall, so sorry about that, but in this case I did not feel I could copy the whole article.
