Hundreds rally at Islamic Center in Dearborn 'to show our unity'
by Niraj Warikoo
Sending a message of peace and unity, hundreds of people rallied Friday afternoon on the steps of Michigan's largest mosque to protest the anti-Islam film that has sparked violence around the world.
Under a banner that read "Repel Evil With Good," a dozen Muslim and Christian leaders spoke to the crowd at the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn. They slammed both the controversial film, titled "Innocence of Muslims," and the extreme response that has erupted around the Muslim world over the past week.
The rally was the first anti-film protest in the U.S., Muslim leaders said.
