Students at the University of Missouri – Columbia are holding a demonstration today on campus in which they will be burning ISIS flags.
The demonstration will begin with a moment of silence for the close to a quarter million people who have died at the hands of the Islamic State. Then they will burn flags provided to them by the art department.
The student who runs the demonstration named Ian Paris had this to say about Islam:
“I consider it a very wholesome religion. It’s not mine in particular, but I am filled with regret and sadness when people around me associate Islam with ISIS. ISIS has perverted and distorted the true values of Islam, which I consider one of the greatest atrocities they have committed.”
From the Washington Post:
Students at the University of Missouri-Columbia are holding an Islamic State flag-burning demonstration on Thursday in response to the terror group’s gross human-rights violations.
“ISIS has violated the liberties and freedoms of millions of people through genocide, deadly religious persecutions, modern-day enslavement, sexual violence, use of a chemical weapon, beheadings and mass executions,” the student group Young Americans for Liberty stated in announcing the event, the College Fix reported.
