Muslims Rally In Norway Against ISIS

Thousands of Muslims rallied in Oslo, Norway, against Islamic State extremists.

Norway’s prime minister and other politicians have joined Muslim leaders and thousands of other people for a demonstration in Oslo against radical Islamists.

Monday’s rally was an initiative by young Norwegian Muslims who wanted to show a united front against Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq and their sympathizers in Norway.

Mehtab Afshar, head of the Islamic Council in Norway, told the crowd: “They stand for terrorism, they stand for terror ... and we condemn that in the strongest terms.”
The Muslims were joined by Norway's Prime Minister.

It's a start. But more Muslims in other countries need to be doing this.
