Jump Rope with a Muslim…honestly — we’re not that scary!
This is your chance to set the record straight.
Reality is…the media will never tell the story of moderates.
Reality is…moderate Muslims are just pretty boring.
Reality is…Muslims are integrated and positive contributors of American society.
Reality is that moderate Muslims just feel a bit left out right now!
As attendees of the ‘Rally to Restore Sanity’, let’s give a reality check to those who believe that fear is worth compromising our American values and our sanity!
Regardless of faith, color, or gender… Jump Rope with a Muslim on the National Mall during the Rally to stand up to fear and show support for unrepresented, ordinary, sane, moderate Muslim-Americans!
*Sponsored by ordinary Muslim-Americans
LOCATION: National Mall – West Seaton Park (directly in-between the entrance of the National Gallery of Art and the Smithsonian Institution; Between Madison Dr & Jefferson Dr, 7th St & 4th St)

Ordinary Muslims Encourage Jumping Rope to Restore Sanity
On Saturday, October 30th, 2010, a group of ordinary Muslims, living in the Washington, DC area are organizing a “Jump Rope with a Muslim” activity during the “Rally to Restore Sanity” at the Washington, DC National Mall
Washington, DC—Inspired by Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and their effort to restore sanity, a group of ordinary Muslims, living in the Washington, DC area are organizing a “Jump Rope with a Muslim” activity during the rally at the Washington, DC National Mall. Our group of moderate, sane, ordinary Muslims wants to show the rest of the country that, honestly – we’re really not that scary.
We will have a five-rope service station where people can jump rope with a real-live Muslim (or skip rope if you’re British), take pictures with us and enjoy the rally. Rally attendees are encouraged to participate to stand up to fear and show support for unrepresented, moderate Muslim-Americans. The group hopes that Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and other featured guests of the “Rally to Restore Sanity” will recognize and join this effort in support of their fellow, sane Americans.
“This is an opportunity for ordinary Muslim-Americans to set the record straight,” said Wajeeha Shuttari, group leader. “The reality is Muslims are integrated and are positive contributors to American society. The fear of Muslim-Americans is not worth compromising our American values – or our sanity.”
