Here they are, those "moderate" Muslims we have been waiting for...all 36 of them

In support of the NYPD and their aggressive tactics against jihadists and those using the Qur'an to justify their actions, the brave 36 took to the streets, disrupting almost nothing and causing little upset.

So much for the voice of the moderate Muslim, but I can't help but support them, as motley a crew as it was, because it is a beginning.  A trickle can become a torrent over time.  I just hope we have enough time.

Islamic groups hold rally in support of NYPD

 (AP) — A coalition of Islamic groups is defending the New York City Police Department's monitoring of Muslim groups across the Northeast. They say the department is simply doing everything it can to protect the city.
Dr. Zuhdi Jasser said Monday that he wasn't in New York to criticize the department, but rather to thank them for monitoring extremists — a job that Muslims should be doing. A group of about three dozen supporters cheered and clapped.
The department has been criticized by many other Muslim groups and politicians after The Associated Press reported the NYPD secretly monitored Muslims across the Northeast in the years following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Jasser narrated the documentary "The Third Jihad," which uses dramatic footage to warn against the dangers of radical Islam.
