As Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump continues his hate speeches targeting Muslims in the US, Facebook founder comes forward supporting Muslims. In a letter posted on Facebook, he assure them of protection and save environment.
“I want to add my voice in support of Muslims in our community and around the world.
After the Paris attacks and hate this week, I can only imagine the fear Muslims feel that they will be persecuted for the actions of others.
As a Jew, my parents taught me that we must stand up against attacks on all communities. Even if an attack isn’t against you today, in time attacks on freedom for anyone will hurt everyone.
If you’re a Muslim in this community, as the leader of Facebook I want you to know that you are always welcome here and that we will fight to protect your rights and create a peaceful and safe environment for you.
Having a child has given us so much hope, but the hate of some can make it easy to succumb to cynicism. We must not lose hope. As long as we stand together and see the good in each other, we can build a better world for all people.”
Interesting Comments on this Post:
Commissioner Joe Luginbill: Thank you, Mark! We need more sensible and young leaders shaping this global conversation.
David Singleton: I have worked with many Muslims and they are some of the nicest, hardest working people I have every known. They have always treated me a Christian with respect and I have treated them the same way. America is suppose to be a place where people of all faiths can live, prosper and not fear being attacked or mistreated. Muslims as a whole are great, peaceful, hard working members of our society. In this country no one should every be persecuted because of their religious beliefs or because of who they are.
William Petto: Thank you Mark. I’m not a Muslim, Jew, Christian, or member of any religion, but I stand for non-generalization, against bigotry and hatred. Jerks like Donald Trump and Franklin Graham will NOT win. They just help us expose the backwards-thinking fools out there.
Tom Stocky: Love conquers hate.
