Muslim leaders on Friday denounced the seven men arrested in Florida as members of a religious cult and implored the media not to refer to them as Muslims.

“The case of this bizarre, cultist group is evidence that the phenomenon of terrorism is not monolithic,” said Ahmed Rehab, executive director of the Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. “They have broken the laws of this country as well as the laws of the religion of Islam. As such, they are to be condemned.”
