About 1,000 people have taken to the streets of Doha, Qatar, to express their anger over the killing of three Muslim students in the US last week by their white neighbor.

Qatar branded the murder “a terrorist act.”

Protesters’ banners read, “End hate crimes”, “Unity”, and “We all have the right to live free from hate”, AFP reported.

US Ambassador to Qatar Dana Shell Smith was among the demonstrators.

She later posted to her Twitter that it was “good to see young people rejecting hate of all kinds.”

At the end of the march, the protesters watched a video message from Suzanne and Farris Barakat, the brother and sister of one of the murder victims.

In the video, Farris said it was “amazing” that “the people of Qatar were thinking about us and the family.”

The march was organized by a foundation headed by the mother of Qatar’s emir, Sheikha Moza bint Nasser al-Masnad.

Last week, three students – 23-year-old Deah Shaddy Barakat, his 21-year-old wife Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha and her 19-year-old sister Razan – were allegedly murdered by their white neighbor Craig Stephen Hicks.

The killing happened in the North Carolina university town of Chapel Hill.

Hicks, 46, has been charged with three counts of murder, and is thought to be a fierce opponent of religion: on his Facebook page, he published anti-religious posts, including against Islam, Christianity and Mormons.

According to police, they are looking into the incident as a parking dispute. However, the students’ families believe the attack was religiously-motivated.

    Things heating up in the states… and, of course, no US coverage. ( Muslims are an increasing part of city and MI State government… just as BO is doing similar with WH positions.) Personally, I think both sides are extreme in this case. But muslims in Inkster and Dearborn bragging that they “are here to outbreed the Americans,” does now speak well for themselves.

      Captain, I would be very careful about broadcasting these things. There are more good Muslims than there are extremists. There always are, but the extremists are used to divide us. I almost don’t want to release your comment, but I do want the message out to be very careful about what you decide to believe! Hugs, ~Jean

    The Chapel Hill shooting is sounding really scripted. All the witnesses, family, friends, etc. say the same types of things over and over and their demeanor and what they say is not what people in real life would do or say. Looking like extras in a movie these so-called Qatar protesters are carrying signs that look like they all came from the same source with scripted messages “End hate crimes”, “Unity”, and “We all have the right to live free from hate” How original! And of course it’s a “terrorist act”! What else could it be??
