One month after taking a stand against construction of the proposed Islamic Cultural Center near the destroyed World Trade Center site in Manhattan, the Anti-Defamation League has started an interfaith coalition meant to help American Muslim communities that are facing opposition to the building of mosques.

The Interfaith Coalition on Mosques (ICOM) is composed of individuals and Christian, Jewish and Muslim groups, and is meant to provide support to Muslims when their rights are violated.
