This is good and should be encouraged.

A prominent Rabbi says increased willingness of European Muslim leaders to denounce attacks on Jews mustn't be overlooked. In the past several years, many top Muslim leaders in France and across Europe have been speaking out against anti-Semitic attacks, even when carried out by fellow Muslims, and vowing to stand together with their Jewish counterparts in opposing anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim bigotry. Many Jews are unaware that in the wake of the killings in Toulouse, large numbers of French Muslims took part in interfaith demonstrations and candlelight vigils in Paris, Marseilles, Nice, Lyon, Strasbourg, Grenoble, Bordeaux, Dijon, Lille and other cities. Major French Muslim organisations, including the French Council of the Muslim Faith and the Great Mosque of Paris strongly condemned the attack as being antithetical to the fundamental precepts of Islam.

France is hardly the only European country in which this positive Muslim engagement with the Jewish community has been taking place. The willingness of European Muslim leaders to speak out publicly against violent anti-Semitic attacks carried out by their co-religionists began in the United Kingdom in January 2009, when in the wake of an upsurge of attacks on Jews by Muslims during the Israel-Gaza war of that year, more than 20 prominent British Muslims signed a joint letter denouncing anti-Semitic attacks and calling for continued Muslim vigilance against anti-Semitism.

It's said that great things may come from small beginnings. I hope so.

In Islam there is no pyramid power structure.

A very good move and one that should be reciprocated by the leaders of Judaism.
