Letter to the editor: Shooting appalls Muslim residents

Our family and the Islamic community of Vermont is outraged and horrified, and deeply saddened by the hateful shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Penn.
We offer our condolences for the innocent lives taken and stand in full support and in solidarity with the Jewish community of Pittsburgh, here in Middlebury and elsewhere.
Hate against one is hate against all. It is imperative that people of all faiths stand up and condemn all such acts of terror. We stand to protect the sanctity of all houses of worship. The loss of innocent lives anywhere in this country and globally is despicable and intolerable.
Selectman Farhad Khan & family
