The Uniting Church Synod of Western Australia and the Anglican Diocese of Perth condemns the fire-bombing overnight of a vehicle in Thornlie outside the College and Mosque.
The Moderator of the Uniting Church, Rev Steve Francis and the Anglican Archbishop of Perth, Roger Herft, extend prayers of concern and solidarity to the Islamic people of Western Australia and unequivocally condemn such violence.
Moderator Rev Steve Francis said, “In this holy season of Ramadan, we stand with the Islamic people in WA and in particular the Australian Islamic College and Mosque in Thornlie.”
Archbishop Herft said, “We offer our prayerful support to the children, teachers and school community as well as the worshipping community at the mosque.
“The Anglican Diocese of Perth and the Uniting Church Western Australia assure the Islamic community of our prayers for peace and our commitment to the promotion of understanding for all in the Western Australian community.”
