What’s holding back Jewish-Muslim cooperation in America?

The debate over whether or not anti-Zionism is essentially antisemitism may be rooted in how we define Zionism.

On October 27, it will have been one year since the largest mass shooting against Jews in the history of the United States where 11 Jews were murdered on a Shabbat morning at the Pittsburgh Tree of Life Congregation. It was, unfortunately, only the first of several terror attacks conducted by white supremacists against both Jews and Muslims in America and throughout the globe over the past 12 months. On March 15, a gunman killed 50 Muslims in Christchurch, New Zealand, while they were trying to recite their Friday prayers. Then, in April, another gunman raided a Chabad in Poway, California, where he killed one Jew and, not coincidentally, that same gunman was linked to an arson attack on a mosque in Escondido, California, just a month earlier. And most recently, a shooter attempted to raid a synagogue in Halle, Germany, on Yom Kippur that left two people dead.
