Milwaukee Islamic Society Asks Walker to Clarify Remark about Muslims

Last week, while on the campaign trail, Gov. Walker was quoted as saying there are only a "handful of reasonable, moderate followers of Islam who don't share the radical beliefs" of Islamic terrorists.

In response, Ahmed Quereshi, president of the Islamic Society of the Milwaukee has written an open letter to the GOP hopeful. It states that a clarification from Walker would serve the best interests of all concerned, including the safety of American Muslims, including thousands in Milwaukee and their houses of worship.

Quereshi tells the governor that only a relative handful of the world's 1.6 billion Muslims support terrorism, while the vast majority are "reasonable, moderate and peaceful".
