Supporters of the Islamic State (IS) on Twitter condemned American Muslims’ participation in interfaith activities with Pope Francis amid his U.S. visit.

On September 25, 2015, a user by an Arabic-language username translating to “Come Come,” called such Muslims “coconuts,” a term used by jihadists to insult moderate Muslims:

I wonder how many coconuts attended today's inter-religious prayer service led by Pope in NYC. They all need to take shahadah again.

On the same day, the Twitter account of “١‎ Muslimah” made several messages condemning the Pope, one of which stating, “Coconuts greet the Pope & apologize for 9/11 & condemns Muslims. Just another day for them.”
