  1. Those “demonstrators” were only inches away from being a KKK lynch mob. They are a disgrace to my country. I hope they crawl back under whatever rock they crawled out from beneath.

  2. I am ashamed as an American to watch the hate mongering shouting and speeches by religious and public officials and known and unknown Islam o phobias, who have no other agenda but to spoil the name of America, her secularism and unity. These goons cannot make a dent in the name and values of Islam and Muslims but are making fun of their own image, character and values. Hope, majority of Americans, who are peaceful and secular must stand-up and condemned this confused and mis-informed bigots.

  3. Growing up as an American Arab was really hard. People like this always try to make me feel bad about my heritage. I then look at the average American whom is very open minded and realize how insignificant these haters are. Go home? Umm you want me to go back to Detroit? Oh I forgot I never left it!

  4. Shame on this people and shame on media for not covering it for its magnitude. I am proud be an American Muslim…..These haters do not change a bit of respect for this land in my hearr. Bigots are part of history but unfortunately they are picking a wrong side of it. I urge every single American to write to a local authority and voice theie opinion on hateful ignorant act of this very tiny group. They do not represent my America.

  5. The hateful and ignorant people should raise voice to correct their society..
    What West stands for: Homosexuality – priest are victimizing innocent children, sodomizing them and producing future homosexuals.
    West stands for: incest, lesbians, alcoholism resulting more than 50,000 deaths and thousands disabled, millions broken homes, unlimited numbers of divorces due to men & women cheating each other, indulging unabated act of premarital sex…eating pork, as animal full of filth as eats filth-Bible, Quran, and Torah forbids eating flesh of swine….the West stands for the destruction of human morality.

    People are converting to Islam-a way of life that God created for humanity and the utmost morality on which faith of Muslim is built.

  6. I cannot believe what I just watched!! Americans trying to have fundraiser are being ridiculed by ignorant fools. America is suuposed to be a place you can practice any religion, how would they like it if their prophet was ridiculed in their faces.

  7. OMG, watching this video gave me a sick feeling in my stomach. I wish I could have been there to responded to them, but I know people who have so much hate and anger in their heart are deaf, dumb and blind. The video made me think of what the Prophet,SAW, and his companions went through in the beginning stages of His prophethood. The best thing we can do for people like that is make dua’a for them.

  8. I think I saw only one police officer in the video. These types of crowds have a tendency to get violent especially if they grow large. There should be a bigger police presence in the future if such a gathering is anticipated.

  9. muslims in america celebrate centuries of being part and parcel of this land. muslims have been in america before columbus and before the europeans came to these shores. muslims were an integral part of the native american society and muslims came to america with columbus on his ships. muslims also arrived in america on slave ships and finally muslims came to the usa as immigrants….islam in america is everywhere. one just has to look for it. from calif haronia(california), to Allah-Bumya(Alabama), to Talla-Hasse(Tallahassee), to medina ohio, to moorestown, new jersey, to islamorada florida, to al-hambra california, muslims have left an impact on the country…a sum of 565 names, 484 in america and 81 in canada, of villages, towns, cities, mountains, lakes, rivers etc. are etymologically arabic, designated by locals long before the aarival of columbus. many of these names are in fact the same as names of islamic places; mecca in indiana, medina in idaho, medina in new york, medina and hazen in north dakota, medina in ohio, medina in tennessee, medina in texas, medina and arva in ontario, mahomet in illinois and mona in utah, are just a few few noticeable names at the outset…is not this an eye opener for those who chant, ” go back home. “

  10. Think of what Non-Muslims did to the prophet in person, at Ta’if. Although it boils our blood but we must be mindful of that always and respond rather than react, accordingly.

  11. Thanks for the information. I came to know quite a bit about what is happening in USA. Please keep me in your regular mailing list. The responses are just and timely. Please keep them up.

  12. Hi Lynne,
    There were multiple emails, press releases and blog postings confirming who was pushing for people to attend the rally. If you really don’t believe it we can post those messages.

  13. WE MUSLIMS in our USA, CENTURIES ago alongwith the WASP’s, gave our Blood & Sweat & Tears, For OUR Freedom & Building & Farming of our USA. Muslims came to USA, when the First Slaves were brought[at Gun-Point] from Muslim-African-Countries[ROOTS documentary].

  14. When the hatred reached to its peak the KKK did not even bother to cover their heads with those ghostly hoods. Where is the mercy and kindness to others that Jesus (peace be on him)preached?
    They should be exposed in the media.

  15. “The pitifulest thing out is a mob.” – Mark Twain
    There you have it from one of America’s greatest writers. And that particular mob was one of the most pitiful I’ve ever seen. Those people don’t represent me and I’m confident they don’t represent most Americans. There are hateful, ignorant people in every society. This mob is a perfect example.

  16. These people wave the Israeli flag and accue american muslims of being unpatriotic. The whole issue is stirred up by the zionists because they see their aid to Israel being cut.

  17. Expect more of this. Americans will no longer be silent. We understand your jihad of the mind and pen. You will silence us NO longer. I would re-iterate, GO HOME ISLAM!

  18. We are also Americans and this IS the home of Islam as well as other religions. My father is proud US citizen who fought in the US Army and I was born and raised as a muslim in the good old USA. So when I hear hate messages like “go home”, I think people really need to start waking up and start looking around because we are in a new era and need to stop the islamphobia mentality.

  19. Hooray for the protesters. It’s about time somebody told the Muslims we don’t want you here. Take your evil religion and get the hell out of my country. Sharia has no place in America and neither do people who believe in Islam. Islam is not a religion, it is a political oppressive tyranny. McCarthy was right then and King is right now. We have only begun to fight you.

  20. I am a secular nonbeliever who does not want a theocracy of any sort, but separation of state and religion. I do not identify with the protestors, but you must remember that Muslims have rioted and killed because they did not like cartoons in a newspaper. Everyone should take several steps back and count to 100. Neither side is advanced by crudity and insults.

  21. It’s very sad to see this video. Why everyone can not live together as a big family. Remember that all of us are not belong to this land accept Native American so please do not scream “go back home”. I think we should study about American history.
    Best regards.

  22. “Say, [O Muhammad], “If the Most Merciful had a son, then I would be the first of [his] worshippers.”
    Exalted is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, Lord of the Throne, above what they describe.
    So leave them to converse vainly and amuse themselves until they meet their Day which they are promised.
    And it is Allah who is [the only] deity in the heaven, and on the earth [the only] deity. And He is the Wise, the Knowing.
    And blessed is He to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them and with whom is knowledge of the Hour and to whom you will be returned.
    And those they invoke besides Him do not possess [power of] intercession; but only those who testify to the truth [can benefit], and they know.
    And if you asked them who created them, they would surely say, ” Allah .” So how are they deluded?
    And [ Allah acknowledges] his saying, “O my Lord, indeed these are a people who do not believe.”
    So turn aside from them and say, “Peace.” But they are going to know.”
    [The Holy Qur’an, Ayaat 81-89, Chapter 43]

  23. “Exalted is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, Lord of the Throne, above what they describe.”…(Ayah 82, Chapter 43, The Holy Qur’aan]
    People, God does not want us to riot or fight, He Is The Most Kind and Most Compassionate and wants us to display mercy as well…
    And He tells us to stand up for justice, even if it be against our own selves!
