Anti-Muslim protests fail to draw crowds over Friday and Saturday October 9-10. A loosely affiliated group of armed protestors organized anti-Muslim hate rallies across the country.

“In particular, the Muslims in the group were profoundly touched by the extraordinary expressions of support by their non-Muslim friends. “All of us experienced a deep kinship of spirit,” said Rahman, a Muslim Sufi minister, to HuffPost.
