This video says about itself:

“Not in my name” shout Muslims in Barcelona

21 August 2017

“We are all Barcelona” say Muslims who held a demonstration in Barcelona at the weekend denouncing the terror attack that called 15 people.

A comment on this video says:

Conservatives: “Muslims need to speak out if they’re against terrorism!”

Also conservatives [if Muslims do so]: “These Muslims are lying and are terrorist sympathizers!”

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Spain: Thousands of Muslims out against jihadi terror

Wednesday 23rd August 2017

THOUSANDS of Muslims voiced their rejection of jihadi extremism on Monday evening, marching through central Barcelona with banners reading: “Terrorism has no religion.”

They paraded from the Plaza de Catalunya, close to where Younes Abouyaaqoub drove a van into pedestrians on Las Ramblas, killing 13 people and injuring over 100 last Thursday.

He had earlier killed the van’s driver. Representatives of three Islamic communities delivered a statement in Catalan, Spanish and Arabic, saying that local Muslims rejected violence and offered support to those injured in the attack.

Improvised placards reading “We are also victims,” “Terrorism has no religion,” “We are all Barcelona, not terrorism,” were held by the crowd.

The demonstration was attended by local politicians, including members of all parties represented in the Catalan parliament and Barcelona City Council.

Suspected members of the same terrorist cell as the van driver, who was shot dead by police on Monday, appeared in a Madrid court yesterday.
