  • We welcome all Syrian refugees to our diverse and friendly Princeton. We need to be more progressive like California and help these war refugees.

  • It’s great to have such a dialogue. But, it’s a two-way street.

    I hope this Center does its part and strives mightily to minimize any harm that may come to members of our community – members of all races and creeds – by radical extremists.

    The problem of radical Islam – and the heinous acts that have been committed in its name – is a problem that can only be effectively solved from within – by moderate Islam.
