Letters to the Editor
J. - Jewish Weekly of Northern Calif.
 
     August 13, 2010

To the Editor:

Bigotry and stereotypes about Islam and Muslims have no place in our diverse society. We were disturbed to read certain letters in the Aug. 13 issue of j. commenting on the proposed Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero that displayed this bias.

Reasonable minds may differ regarding the planned construction in New York, but that is no reason to resort to prejudice of any sort. We urge everyone to reject appeals to bigotry in this or any other public debate.


  Sincerely,

Bev Ripps
Regional Board Chair

Nina Simone Grotch
Interim Regional Director, San Francisco
