American Muslim leaders who recently returned from visiting Dauchau and Auschwitz have released a statement condemning Holocaust denial and anti-Semitism.
The trip earlier this month was led by Rabbi Jack Bemporad of the Center for Interreligious Understanding in New Jersey, and co-sponsored by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation of Germany.
The Muslim leaders said that denying or justifying the Holocaust violates Islamic ethics.
“We condemn anti-Semitism in any form,” the leaders wrote. “No creation of Almighty God should face discrimination based on his or her faith or religious conviction.”
