Thank you for sharing the story about the hospitality offered by members of the Idriss Mosque [“In time of strife, community comes out to support Idriss Mosque,” seattletimes.com, Aug. 14].
Abraham, the founder of both Islam and Judaism, offered this hospitality to strangers. Terrorism, on the other hand, is creating a threat to strangers in order to instill fear in them.
This community event was the opposite of terrorism — by offering food and giving tours of the Mosque and explaining the basic beliefs of Islam.
