IOWA CITY, Iowa — The Johnson County Board of Supervisors passed a proclamation Tuesday in support of “our Muslim sisters and brothers.”
KCRG-TV reports that the proclamation is a response to recent comments by politicians and others regarding about Muslims after recent terrorist attacks by radical groups.
Part of the proclamation reads in part:
“We are distressed that our Muslim sisters and brothers are being unfairly forced to bear the fears of our nation … We are deeply concerned by words and actions that assault the safety and well-being of Muslims.”
According to the proclamation, Muslims have helped make the United States a great place to “live, learn, work and play.”
