United States civil rights groups worry anti-Muslim sentiment is fueling right-wing extremism”

Three were arrested on suspicion of vandalism for smashing windows of two cars, according to San Bernardino police spokeswoman Eileen Hards. "They're against Islam. They're against Muslims".

A phalanx of bicycle police officers kept the sides separated during the sanctioned events, but conflicts flared as the gatherings concluded. The tensest moment came later in the afternoon when Anti-Sharia law protesters broke the windows of Anti-Trump counter protesters as they attempted to leave. Under Sharia Law, women must be submissive to men, sexual intercourse with pre-pubescent females and rape is sometimes permissible and the punishment for blasphemy is death. The organisers claim they are the "largest anti-Muslim group in America, with 280,000 members and over 1,000 chapters".

Rally participants and a handful of counter-protesters appeared Saturday in Atlanta's Piedmont Park.

Two protests, in opposition to each other, were held near the Oceanside Pier on Saturday.

While many Muslims liken Shariah to other religions' laws that guide the faithful but don't supercede the rules of secular societies in which they may live, some states have been concerned enough to pass legislation prohibiting the use of foreign law in state courts.

The protests happening in more than 20 major cities, including Chicago.

Seven people were arrested at the Capitol in St. Paul, the Minnesota State Patrol tweeted from its official account. "Well radical Muslims are killing their own people".

"Most of these protests are happening because people don't know what the true teaching of Islam are", said Rizwan Ahmad, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. They organize the protests nationwide looking at about 19 different states where they say these rallies were happening. Giant letters spelling out "Trump" loomed on the high-rise over the more than 100 protesters.

"People are being run over in the street with trucks and little kids are being blown up", Sleater said, referring to recent attacks in London and Manchester.

It also warned Muslims to take extra precautions against potential violence over the weekend. Some wore red hats with Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again". The counter-protesters shouted, "Nazis!"

Clashes between anti-Sharia rally goers and counter-protesters were captured on video, to include a clip where there was an exchange of punches from those in the crowd. Local activists set up an "Ask an American Muslim" booth where attendees could meet and learn about their Muslim neighbors.

The demonstrations were held in more than two dozen USA cities, including Seattle, New York and Chicago.

On its website, Act for America, which sponsored the rally, calls itself "the NRA of national security". Those opposed to Islamic law were also staunch Trump supporters. The rally was organized by ACT for America, which claims Islamic law is incompatible with Western democracy.

More than a dozen states have passed, or are trying to pass, laws to curb the possibility of Sharia law making its way onto the books in the U.S. Marches against Islamic law were planned Saturday in more than two dozen cities acro.

Demonstrators gathered to protest against Islamic-law hoist American flags as they take part in a rally Saturday, June 10, 2017, in NY.

Denise Zamora, 39, of Upland said the group wasn't opposed to all Muslims.
