The exec's most recent post features a touching interview with a New Zealand man who lost his wife in the shooting but who has forgiven the gunman. "I lost my wife but I don't hate the killer. As a person, I love him but, I'm sorry, I cannot support what he did. I think somewhere along in his life, maybe he was hurt but could not translate the hurt into a positive manner," he explains.
Oseary compared the tragedy to an unfortunately similar one that happened within his own Jewish community. "It was October 27, 2018 when 11 people were killed during Shabbat prayers at the Pittsburgh Tree Of Life synagogue… It was the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the United States," he wrote. "A GoFundMe campaign for the families of the victims was set up by Shay Khatiri, a DC-based Iranian immigrant who loves the American Jewish community and moved quickly to help. I donated and supported that campaign. You can see what I wrote about my experience of Anti-Semitism on that devastating day."
He ended by noting that he is returning the support for the Muslim people. "This time around, it was important for me — an Israeli Jew — to show love and care for the Muslim community on another painful, sad day that left 50 innocent people dead in #NewZealand."
Oseary is one of many in the music community voicing support for the victims in New Zealand. Scooter Braun, who manages Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber and others, posted on Saturday "to those in New Zealand who were affected I stand with you." He continued, "To my Muslim friends around the world know you do not stand alone. We all stand with you. Because to defeat this evil we must make the world hear loud and clear that our communities are one... our voices are one..."
John Legend, Nick Jonas, Bebe Rexha and many others have also honored the victims.
