The movement, started around 2006 based on the Coexist Foundation, “has been working to promote better understanding between Jews, Christians and Muslims, and between these communities and others, through education, dialogue and research.”

Florida Rep. Allen West took heat after criticizing people with the bumper sticker, calling Islam a “very vile and very vicious enemy that we have allowed to come in this country because we ride around with bumper stickers that say co-exist.”

Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, revealed to be part of the Boston bombing, are devout Muslims and highjacked a vehicle during the manhunt which followed this week.
