With the increase in instances of Islamophobia and certain presidential candidates calling for “a ban on all Muslim travel to the U.S.,” it is long past time to get to know our neighbors. For the next several weeks I am presenting a series, “Meet Your Muslim Neighbor.” Ali Houdroge is one of the founding members of the Islamic Center of Portland at the corner of Denney Road and Hall Boulevard in Beaverton. Mr. Houdroge was born in Lebanon and attended Portland Community College and Portland State University. He worked as an electrical engineer with the army corps of engineers for 31 years until his retirement. He has been managing the affairs of the Islamic Center since its inception in 1993, which serves a diverse Muslim Shia community from Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and India.
