Readers Write: Standing firm with those facing bigotry

The Island Now

Jersey City became a war zone the other day when two evil-doers went on a killing spree, including the killing of a dedicated police detective Joseph Seals.

These two entered  Kosher supermarket and killed those inside the market. It has been reported anti-Semitic duo targeted a Jewish store because of hatred of Jews.

Now we are a nation based on freedom and respect for all those who come here. As such my heartfelt prayers go out to those who have lost loved ones in Jersey City, N.J.

As a Catholic and as Grand Knight of St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus in Douglaston, I stand firm with all my brothers and sisters of the Jewish faith and pray for an end of anti-Semitism, which is on the rise in our country today.

You see our creator created the human race and we are all brothers and sisters of the same human family and were created to love one another. So let’s teach our children to do the same.

Frederick R. Bedell Jr.
