Moderate Muslims Speak Out

On Saturday, Free Muslims Against Terrorism (FMAT) and a number of other organizations held an anti-terrorism demonstration in Washington. Among the speakers was Mohamed Eljahmi, a long-time friend and the brother of imprisoned Libyan dissident Fathi Eljahmi.

Mohamed told the crowd that he and others had come “to send a message of hope and support to the people of the Greater Middle East in their struggle to build free and democratic societies. We also salute the men and women of the US armed forces, who continue to sacrifice for the cause of freedom and liberty in the Greater Middle East.

“Free societies follow the rule of law, abhor violence, abhor anti-Semitism and abhor religious intolerance, while repressed societies create environments of despair and hate. The Free World must tell the Arab tyrants, that decades-long abuse and repression of their people must end.” The rest of his remarks are here.
