Muslim activists have launched a crowdfunding campaign to help repair the damage in a vandalized Jewish cemetery, according to ABC News.


TheBlaze previously reported that over 100 headstones at the historic Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery in University City, Missouri were vandalized over the weekend.




Robin Rickerman, who has family members buried in the cemetery, told KTVI-TV that “these are holocaust survivors that are in here.”


“They shouldn’t have to endure any more trauma,” Rickerman said. “Let them be settled.”


According to ABC, Linda Sarsour and Tarek El-Messidi decided to launch a crowdfunding campaign to help repair the damage to the cemetery. They have raised over $80,000 so far.


“Muslim Americans stand in solidarity with the Jewish-American community to condemn this horrific act of desecration against the Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery,” the pair wrote on the campaign’s website. “We also extend our deepest condolences to all those who have been affected and to the Jewish community at large.”


They said that they want to show support to the impacted Jewish community:


The Muslim-American community extends our hands to help rebuild this sacred space where Jewish-American families have laid their loved ones to rest since the late 1800’s. Campaign proceeds will go directly to the Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery in light of the recent damage. Any remaining funds – after the cemetery is restored – will be allocated to repair any other vandalized Jewish centers.


“Through this campaign, we hope to send a united message from the Jewish and Muslim communities that there is no place for this type of hate, desecration, and violence in America,” they added. “We pray that this restores a sense of security and peace to the Jewish-American community who has undoubtedly been shaken by this event.”


The vandalism comes amid an increase in anti-semitic violence in the United States.
