Faith Under Fire: "Today I Am a Muslim Too" Rally

Last March, some 150 organizations and interfaith leaders rallied in New York City against Rep. Peter King's Radical Islam hearings before the House Committee on Homeland Security. Rally participants included Daisy Khan, Executive Director, American Society for Muslim Advancement; Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the Cordoba Initiative; Rabbi Marc Schneier, president, The Foundation for Ethnic Understanding; Imam Shamsi Ali, Islamic Cultural Center of New York; the Rev. Dr. Katharine R. Henderson, President, Auburn Theological Seminary; media and fashion mogul Russell Simmons; and the Rev. Chloe Breyer, Interfaith Center of New York.  A counter-rally held by supporters of Rep. Peter King several blocks away, included protestor Andy Sullivan, founder of the 9/11 Hard Hat Pledge.
