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.”
