Muslim march against terrorism lauded - and strongly criticized

11 Juillet 2017

Around 30 Muslim leaders from across Europe gathered Sunday for a rally against terror in Berlin at the site of a deadly truck attack in December, claimed by the Islamic State group.

Those behind the initiative "Muslims march against terrorism" believe its not enough to say Islam represents peace, they must be more proactive. They will also stop at Montauban, where an attack took place in 2012 against a Jewish school, and in Nice, where previous year 86 people were killed when a truck drove into a crowd. There the delegation will also visit the town of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, where a priest was attacked in a church, and the cities of Toulouse and Nice.

The Islamic leaders held a prayer for the victims, joined by local Muslim, Christian and Jewish representatives.
