DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) - One of the largest mosques in the United States plans a rally against hateful speech and violent acts stemming from the privately made anti-Islam video that ridiculed the prophet Muhammad and triggered major protests across the Muslim world.
The Islamic Center of America in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn calls its Friday afternoon event a "Rally Against Hate" and invites people of all faiths.
Organizers hope to call attention to those who provoke violence in their speech and counteract extremism in the Muslim and non-Muslim worlds.
The video "Innocence of Muslims" has been linked to protests that continue to rage across the Middle East and resulted in at least 30 deaths in seven countries, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.
Dearborn is home to a large Arab-Muslim community.
