In response to the New Zealand mosque massacre, New Zealand authorities are bending over backwards to make sure that Muslims feel welcome. One wonders if the Prime Minister of New Zealand would be calling upon everyone to wear a Star of David if a synagogue had been attacked, or broadcasting Christian prayers if a church had been attacked. Her statement about the Islamic faith is entirely whitewashed, without a hint of the fact that “according to the Muslim faith,” Muslims must wage war against unbelievers. All this will make that war impossible for non-Muslims in New Zealand to oppose.
“New Zealand Broadcasts Islamic Call To Prayer To Honor Mosque Attack Victims,” by Joshua Gill, Daily Caller News Foundation, March 21, 2019 (thanks to Todd):

The ceremony was one of several conducted throughout New Zealand to honor victims of the March 15 attacks and also included a 2-minute national moment of silence, which people across the country were encouraged to observe as a time of reflection, according to the BBC.
Ardern recited a passage from the Koran just before the recitation of the call to prayer, first in Arabic and then in English.
“According to Muslim faith, the prophet Muhammad …. The believers in their mutual kindness, compassion and sympathy are just like one body. When any part of the body suffers, the whole body feels pain,” she recited
“New Zealand mourns with you. We are one,” she added.
An imam then gave the call to prayer, which was broadcast on both television and radio across the country. A social media campaign also called for non-Muslim women to wear a hijab on Friday in solidarity with the Muslim community.
“I know many New Zealanders wish to mark the week that has passed since the terrorist attack and to support the Muslim community as they return to mosques,” Ardern said prior to Friday’s ceremonies, according to BBC. “How we choose to reflect during the silence will be different for each of us. Everyone should do what feels right for them, wherever they are, at home, at work, at school.”…
