New Zealand: How can faith communities heal after violence? | The Stream



Fifty Muslims in New Zealand were killed last month when a white supremacist opened fire during congregational prayers at two mosques in the city of Christchurch. The incident once again highlighted the threat of white nationalist violence on minority faith communities in the West, recalling similar attacks on places of worship in Canada’s Quebec, and in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin in the United States.

But these communities refuse to give into hate and fear, standing together worldwide and sharing lessons in the aftermath of tragedy.

In this episode, The Stream speaks with survivors from Al Nur mosque, the Quebec City Islamic Cultural Centre, and Tree of Life synagogue to learn how these communities are healing.

  2. Thank you Al Jazeera for your excellent and balanced coverage. We need major media houses to take heed from Al Jazeera to be balanced and fair . I returned back from Christchurch few days back and highly appreciate what all sections of my country have done and continue to do. WE ARE ONE

  4. When will you people realize we don’t want you and your culture in our societies? Keep your islam in your own borders because no matter how much they try Al Jihada cannot convince anyone of multicultural shenanigans

  5. We could start making the world a better place by dropping an A-bomb on Qatar so it’s white-ant media organisation (that’s you, Al Jazeera) would finally stop meddling in other countries political systems

  6. How do Muslim woman heal after their husband beat them because your dumb book says so?

  7. Never is there this much cover by media when Muslims do terrorist attacks. Why

  8. It sucks that it takes tragedy to bring the Muslim & Jewish communities together but I love, love, love seeing the Muslim & Jewish faiths coming together in brotherhood & solidarity like this, on Al Jazeera even though the AJ studio got shut down in certain countries but Al Jazeera is one of my favourite news channels so this to me is beautiful I hope that Muslim & Jewish communities can unite in the Middle East as well without any tragedies, inshallah, brothers are brothers, sisters are sisters, family is family & we are not each others true enemy. I'm so glad that the Jewish community is supporting the Muslim community & vice versa. Allahu ackbar, Hashem echad.

  10. I loved hearing the accents of a New Zealander, a Canadian and an American who happen to have faiths and experiences that differ from the mainstream of each country, but are just as essential. Despite the different accents, backgrounds and faiths they were able to speak with one voice of love and healing.

  11. HOW CAN THE THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS HEAL AFTER BEING TORTURED & SLAUGHTERED BY THE LOVING RELIGION CALLED ISLAM?!

  12. VERY GOOD BE HUMAN TO HAVE BLESSING FROM GOD OF ALL

  13. Don't "Fool-Yourself"!!! When you do your home work; You will learn this is just a drop in the tank of "Poison"! When you look at what takes place in those "No-Go-Zones" Then look at the Hidden Crap going on with "Jihad" "Sharia-Law", The Silent and Deadly take over control of law Enforcement and the News Media; Who only "Sensationalize" the real facts !!!

  16. Al-Jazeera should also done story on forced conversion of minority in pakistan

  17. Where are the Christians? Where are they? They have been the main target, especially in the Muslim world. Take the massacre in Morocco, of Daesh in Syria and Iraq, of the killing of Coptics in Egypt?

  18. Cry me a river. Keep your damned propaganda and shove it up your asshole. What do you hope to gain from this? You just keep dividing people over the fact that one mentally ill person committed a horrible crime. You are painting every responsible gun owner with the same paintbrush as a deranged madman, shame on you, shame on your lies.
