I enjoyed meeting and talking with several of my Muslim neighbors. I love that we live in such a diverse community!

Pleasanton should be a model for our nation on this topic.

The people who reach out to the Muslim refugees would be better served by asking the the so called refugees to condemn the atrocities done by Muslim terrorist. Good luck wth getting any comments from them. Just silence and dazed looks.

Are you asked to condemn or comment on the atrocities done by someone of your faith every time they commit such act/s?

I am proud of our town but ashamed of some people, some posters. How can you people be so blinded by hate? I understand the concern but not everyone is evil. Not every Muslim is a terrorist just like not every Christian was a cruel crusader. We all have episodes of fear and cruelty in our races, countries histories. We have to be above prejudice. There will always be bad people out there but it is not a matter or religion, race or background. We, as humans, are different and that is our strength:
