Zuhdi Jasser


Arizona physician Zuhdi Jasser's effort to stage a rally last week of Muslims against terrorism didn't work out very well. He wanted to give Muslim moderates "an opportunity to speak out publicly," and to demonstrate that such acts as suicide and murdering innocents "are against everything we believe."

Jasser had hoped for a turnout of 500-1000. Maybe 400 people showed up, but apparently not many of them were Muslims. Still, he deserves recognition; it's possible that something more substantial could yet develop from his example.
