French Muslims to protest against extremism

The Associated Press

PARIS (AP) Muslims in France are gathering for a demonstration in Paris against extremist violence after the videotaped beheading of a French mountaineer.

Friday's protest comes a day after the main mosque in Paris called for the demonstration against the killings happening in the name of their religion. It also comes in the wake of the launch earlier this week by British Muslims of a social media campaign "#notinmyname" in response to the Islamic State group.

Many Western Muslims are torn between their fury at the atrocities committed in the name of Islam and frustration that they have to defend themselves at all. The head of the Bordeaux mosque said any demonstration should include all religions.
