THE AMERICA DONALD HATES:

Muslims crowdfund for victims of Pittsburgh synagogue attack (Al Jazeera, 10/28/18)

The Muslim-American community has raised tens of thousands of dollars in a crowdfunding effort to help the victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting that left at least 11 people dead and six wounded.

The campaign, which is hosted by Muslim crowdfunding site LaunchGood, aims to help shooting victims, "whether it is the injured victims or the Jewish families who have lost loved ones".

It was started by Tark El-Messidi, a Muslim-American speaker and founder of CelebrateMercy, a nonprofit organisation that "teaches about the Prophet Muhammad's life and character".

According to an update the campaign's page, its original goal of $25,000 was raised in "only" six hours.
