To the editor,

It’s most unfortunate that Lou Reiner’s comments as reported by TAPinto are nothing more than religious bigotry and ignorance wrapped in false patriotism.

The conflict between Saudi Arabia and Yemen has been fueled by external western military support to Saudi Arabia which has created another major humanitarian crisis in Yemen. Rather than blame Islam for the attack on Saudi oil refineries, Mr. Reiner should reevaluate his blind support of the President’s policies which has exacerbated already existing tensions in that part of the world.

Our newsletter delivers the local news that you can trust.

Also, Mr. Reiner owes the Muslims of New Jersey an apology, and he would be better enlightened if he visited his local mosque and get to know his neighbors.
