(CBS News)PORTLAND, Ore. - A Monday evening rally to celebrate the death of Osama Bin Laden has been cancelled due to security concerns, reports CBS affiliate KOIN.
"Just the reaction of last nights' news has been different, in different communities and we have been getting emails. Some have been supportive - sending best wishes and there are really 'out there' emails," said Salma Ahmad, President of the Islamic Society of Greater Portland.
Ahmad didn't go into detail about the threats but it could be coming from both people who have an axe to grind with Muslims and Muslims who sympathize with Osama Bin Laden and his principles.
Whatever the threat was it was enough to cancel the rally which was to take place at Pioneer Courthouse Square between 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.

Only muslim event I would endorse ...
MASS SELF DEPORTATION!!!
Legitimate rallies are cancelled but muslim intolerance are not...sounds like they need to march up and down the streets where muslims ar with a large group of officers...take it back we want the Usa back...
Well, THAT stinks!!!!
A group of Muslims want to demonstrate their support for the destruction of that animal and its cancelled ebcause of threats?
My guess is they came from Muslims who disagree with the protestors.
SeeBS didn't care to go into details either. That there MIGHT be some muslims in the US who are UNHAPPY with the death of Osama Bin Laden is an ugly truth that the Viacommies DON'T want to ever consider.
Good on those who would stand WITH the US against Islamic terrorists. Boo on the rest.
We the People should have FORCED ALL “Moslem” “Events” and ALL MOSLEM to be deported after 9/11/2001 Arabs are a BASTARD “Race” and “Islam” is a BASTARD “Religion”!
Nothing like a bloody good riot to realign priorities.
Nothing compared to the inconveniences inflicted upon Americans since 9/11.
I can think of a couple of skyscrapers in NYC that were “canceled” because some muslims wanted it that way. That seems to be the way of the world these days. There was a time when the United States wouldn’t have stood for even the threat of either.
Our answer to the feelings of islam should be two red-hot craters in Saudi Arabia, each one the size of a city.
SMART..! And cynical! They PLANNED the event specifically so that they could later CANCEL it, owing to security fears. And then they’d have positioned themselves as VICTIMS.
