    Muslims Raise Over $120,000 in 48 Hours for Victims of Anti-Semitic Mass Shooting

    "We're not gonna stop. We don't think our work is finished because that's a high number."

    As part of an enormous outpouring of interfaith solidarity after an anti-Semitic gunman killed 11 people who were worshiping inside the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh on Saturday—the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history—a Muslim-led crowdfunding campaign has raised over $120,000 in just 48 hours to help pay for the immediate needs of the wounded victims and grieving families.

    "The Muslim-American community extends its hands to help the shooting victims, whether it is the injured victims or the Jewish families who have lost loved ones," reads the site of the campaign, which was organized by CelebrateMercy and MPower Change. "We wish to respond to evil with good, as our faith instructs us, and send a powerful message of compassion through action."

    Within just six hours of its launch on Saturday, the campaign had already far surpassed its initial goal of $25,000, and the donations continued to pour in.

    As of this writing, the campaign is just $2,000 away from its updated goal of $125,000.

    After announcing during an interfaith prayer service on Sunday that the Muslim-American community has raised tens of thousands of dollars to support the victims of Saturday's hate-driven massacre, Wasi Mohamed—executive director of the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh—said, "We're not gonna stop."

    "We don't think our work is finished because that's a high number," Mohamed said. "We just want to know what you need. If it's more money, let us know. If it's people outside your next service protecting you, let us know. We'll be there."

    "If you need anything at all, if you need food for the families, if you just need someone to come to the grocery store because you don't feel safe in this city, we'll be there," Mohamed concluded. "And I'm sure everybody in the room would say the same thing."

    The rest is history: Kong very skillfully discovered our group (that was not even hidden) and spent long wet days exploring every thread, going through every post and stalking our entire stack byte by byte, until he found about 2 or 3 questionable instances, and proceeded to make the dish richer with creative additions like hardcore lolicon porn or the infamous star children pics -whatever it's supposed to mean- and soon after i logged in to me being the Al Capone of children trafficking, ordering constant refill of actual holo 3D virtual reality cp videos, and something about emma watson whose meaning and origin i've yet to understand, since it's definitely the most bizarre claim on top of a cake of more or less unbelievable bullshit. At that point, i wasn't much shocked of Kong, cuz he was just being the slimy Kong we all know and love, but of GP, who i've always seen as the scales balancer between me and Pops in the past, and now he'd be very unbalancedly deploying all his rethorics against me and that circle of people, making a long shade of made up stuff, banning us one by one without giving the chance to speak, hiding the group from everyone's eyes with all the evidence it contained, and proceeding to a fervent damnatio memoriae for still long time after the ban.
