Mark Zuckerberg, Google CEO ‘Trump’ Hate With Love, Speak In Support Of Muslims

Prompted by Donald Trump’s recent call to ban all Muslim immigration into the United States, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg came out with a strong statement “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,” he wrote on Facebook.

After Facebook CEO, Google CEO Sundar Pichai came out against Trump’s recent anti-Muslim tirade in an open letter supporting Muslims. Though, just like Mark, Sundar didn’t point out to Trump directly, he did make a reference to the said remarks.

Let’s not let fear defeat our values… It’s been said a million times that America is the “land of opportunity” — for millions of immigrants, it’s not an abstract notion, but a concrete description of what we find here. America provided access to opportunities that simply didn’t exist for many of us before we arrived. And it’s not just about opportunity. The open-mindedness, tolerance, and acceptance of new Americans is one of the country’s greatest strengths and most defining characteristics. And that is no coincidence — America, after all, was and is a country of immigrants,” he wrote on Medium.
