Muslim advocates are demanding an apology from a California city councilwoman for posting anti-Muslim comments on her Facebook social networking page.
Muslim organizations in California on Friday called on Lancaster Councilwoman Sherry Marquez to apologize for a comment last weekend about the 2008 beheading of Aasiya Hassan in New York.
It included the comment, "This is what the Muslim religion is all about."
Kamal Al-Khatib, president of the American Islamic Institute of Antelope Valley, denounced the remarks as bigoted and divisive to the community 50 miles north of Los Angeles.
