Letter: Terrorism should be called out

To the Editor:

Recently there was an act of terrorism at a mosque in Minnesota. The mayor of the town has already called it an “act of terror.”

These acts of terror on Muslims will cause safety concerns for Muslims all over the U.S. just exercising their right of freedom of religion. They will now be in fear every time they attend their local mosque.

Another thing that is disappointing about this issue is that the vast majority of media outlets have failed to call this an act of terrorism let alone speak on this issue.

Yet if a Muslim were to, God forbid, bomb a church, surely it would be breaking news for many media outlets.

We call on our leaders to follow in the footsteps of the mayor to condemn these acts of terrorism and be fair to people of all religions and races when looking at issues like this one.
