Muslims in Dearborn Show Less Opposition to ISIS than to Israel

Dearborn, Michigan is a city so densely populated with Muslims that it’s been referred to as “America’s Muslim Capital”. Some estimates put the Muslim population there as high as 40,000. About 40 (.01%) stood in front of City Hall with a sign that read, “MUSLIMS AGAINST ISIS”.

Such a low turnout not only rings hollow but actually makes the whole effort seem somewhat counterproductive, especially when compared to all of the pro-Palestinian protests against Israel lately (h/t BNI):

One month ago, Muslims were in front of City Hall to protest Israel and Support Hamas. See any difference?

Exit question: What percentage of Muslims denounce ISIS because all the negative press brings the spotlight closer to Islam itself?
