Facebook’s Zuckerberg speaks out in support of Muslims.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is offering words of support for Muslims who fear retaliation for the recent violent attacks by Islamic extremists in Paris and San Bernardino. Zuckerberg, who this week became a father for the first time, says: “I want to add my voice in support of Muslims in our community and around the world.” It comes days after real estate mogul and Republican candidate Trump called for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States”. In the wake of those attacks, Zuckerberg wrote on his personal Facebook page on December 9 that he wants to assure Muslims they are welcome on Facebook. The Trumpster’s controversial proposal has been widely rejected by communities across the US and the world and even astonished members of his own party. He posted: “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.” This comment also comes in wake of a statement released by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, in which he proposed that all Muslims should be barred from entering the US.

Facebook is the largest social network in the world, reportedly registering more than 1 billion monthly active users, including countries that have a majority Muslim population. Though Zuckerberg did not specifically refer to any proposal, the co-founder of the world’s biggest social network said, “As a Jew, my parents taught me that we must stand up against attacks on all communities.” He mentioned the birth of his daughter in today’s post: “Having a child has given us so much hope, but the hate of some can make it easy to succumb to cynicism.
