Anti-terror Muslim peace march in Cologne was expected to draw 10,000, but only 1,000 show up

And many of those who did were non-Muslims.

Have we ever seen Muslims take to the streets in massive numbers to oppose jihad terror?

No.

Back in 2005, I was at the “Free Muslims March Against Terror” in Washington, DC. Only around 25 Muslims were there — more non-Muslims than Muslims were in attendance. And so it is with every Muslim march against terror. Want a huge Muslim crowd? March against Muhammad cartoons or islamofauxbia. Then you’ll see a turnout in the thousands.

“‘Just the beginning’? Anti-terror Muslim peace march in Cologne attracts fewer people than expected,” RT, June 18, 2017:

The organizers initially said that some 10,000 were expected to join the march. Initial police reports suggested that from 200 to 300 people joined the procession when the march started. People continued to join the event, which lasted between three and four hours. The total number of participants eventually grew to around 1,000, the Rheinische Post daily reports.
