As a Muslim I condemn the cruel recent vandalism on a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia (“Outpouring of community help for vandalized Jewish cemetery,” Web, Feb. 28). Ahmadi Muslims, of which I am one, are guided by the khalifa of Islam, Hazart Mirza Masroor Ahmad. He reminds us how the Prophet Muhammad was against all forms of anti-Semitism and how he treated both Jews and Christians with love and respect. It with this guidance that a group of Muslims went to the cemetery and helped our Jewish brothers with repairing some headstones in Philadelphia.
