Christian in Indonesia Speaks Up for Muslims

Following a recent visit to Dearborn, Michigan, Mark Zuckerberg spoke about his meeting with young Muslims who attend the University of Michigan-Dearborn. He had a lot to say, so I’ll share his post here:

His post did have an important message, but as with all messages on immigrants and Muslims, some really angry people found their way into the comments section. They didn’t have much pleasant things to say about Muslims, or immigrants. There was a lone voice that stood out though, a voice that few noticed, but which still stood up in support of Muslims. A Christian from Indonesia had this comment to offer us:

I’ve blurred the name because I don’t want those angry people who disagree with their message being directed to this kind and considerate Indonesian Christian. The Qur’an speaks about Christians like these, it says:

“…and you will find the nearest of them in affection to the believers those who say, “We are Christians.” That is because among them are priests and monks and because they are not arrogant.” – Qur’an 5:82.

and God knows best.

  1. Much thanks to this Indonesian Christian and any other good and kind Christians who are honest and willing enough to stand up and defend Islam and Muslims from false accusations, while speaking truthfully in a way that promotes tolerance, respect, understanding, and coexistence between the two faiths.

    Although I am somewhat skeptical of Zuckerberg, I hope his intentions are good and that if so he takes what he has learned from the Muslims in Dearborn and applies it in a way that will bring positive results for all involved, and also help end the scourge of Islamophobia and anti-Muslim hate that has been so destructive in recent years.
