Sherif Elfass, an engineering professor at UNR, said that before Sept. 11, the local Muslim community was considered closed to others.

"But when you noticed what happened after 9/11, it was a lack of communications on both parties," Elfass said. "We realized as a community we didn't do much about it.
"We started to have an open-door policy and invited anybody to come and visit us at the mosque," he said. "And anyone who wanted to read the Quran, we gave them a Quran."
He said the education outreach is very crucial.
Elfass said his immediate neighbors "were awesome."
"They immediately recognized that Islam is not like that because we had been talking to them, and they came and showed us their support," he said.
An equally important mission, Elfass said, is to educate Muslim youths in Islamic principles.
Elfass said that if young Muslims encounter someone who tells them to do something that is wrong, better understanding of their faith hopefully will help them make the right decisions.
"We do not want to see Islam hijacked again," he said.

"Obviously Obama had to support the people's demand for a democracy, but Mubarak was a strong ally and kept peace in the Middle East," said Elfass, a civil engineering research professor at the University of Nevada, Reno who has been there for 16 years.

"He was what we call 'walking between the lines,'" Sherif Elfass said.
