Oklahoma City Muslim leaders rallied Friday to denounce the terror group ISIS and other Muslim extremists. Oklahoma's Chapter of The Council on American-Islamic Relations or “CAIR,” and the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City met outside the Southeast Corner of Penn Square Mall, with about 100 people who attended the rally. 

About three weeks ago Republican State Representative John Bennett said on his Facebook page that we “should be wary” of Muslim Americans. 

Dr. Imad Enchassi of Oklahoma City University says members of ISIS are not true Muslims. “What ISIS is practicing is an ideology of hate, an ideology of dividing people, an ideology of murdering people,” he said. 

Oklahoma Republican Party Chairman Dave Weston Friday said the dispute between local Muslims and Bennett has been “overblown.”
