Kamal Nawash, the founder of the Free Muslims Against Terrorism had a clear message: Muslims need to condemn terror, not condone it or remain silent about it.

I must say that the turnout was disappointing. If this turnout is representative of Muslims in the United States, then we should be genuinely worried. This demonstration was about promoting moderate views in Islam and denouncing terror. Unfortunately, only about two or three dozen folks showed up to actually participate. The remainder of the crowd was media.
Nonetheless, the existence of a group like Free Muslims Against Terror is cause for optimism, and though the turnout left much to be desired, the message did not.
