Global Rally For Humanity : Protest Against Islam to Be Held Nationwide Saturday and Sunday

Mosques across the country are taking increased safety measures in response to a series of anti-Muslim rallies planned nationwide for Oct 9 and 10.
The Council for Islamic-American Relations (CAIR), a Muslim civil rights group, is urging Muslim leaders around the country to be vigilant this weekend and take extra precautions to ensure community members' safety.
"We've known about this for about a month now," Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR's communications director, said. "A lot of the times with stuff like this, we don't know if it's just bluster or something serious. Our position is generally not to give attention to people seeking cheap publicity. But there's been enough violent rhetoric around this event that we just felt it prudent to alert the community about what actions they can take to make sure everyone is safe and secure."
The rallies stem from a Facebook page called "Global Rally For Humanity," which urges "patriots" to find mosques in their cities to set up protests. "Humanity is attacked daily by radical Islam," the page reads. "Protests will be held in every country at every mosque."
According to Imagine2050, at least 20 rallies are planned across the country for Oct. 9 and 10, and some organizers have indicated that in states with open-carry laws, protesters will be armed. One organizer in Maryland said that he planned to desecrate Qurans at an event.
