A video showing Muslims in London stepping in to stop extremists from delivering extremist messages in public, has been shared thousands of times.

I make no secret that I have the good fortune of having a very close friend (of 43 years now) who happens to be Muslim - he and his family are good people as are many others - and we can talk about ALL religions and ALL ideologies - and he is accepting of the beliefs of others. He is an example of what Muslims MUST be - tolerant of all others and not out to conquer the world.
