What happened, aren’t there “Truth in Advertising” laws in this country anymore?
I work in advertising and the lawyers would censor me in a heartbeat if I tried to put so much obvious BS into any advertisement I ever wrote.
WhyIslam is project of the Islamic Circle of North America, or ICNA, and ICNAs Director of the Why Islam campaign Sabeel Ahmed has written:
Armed with facts on Christmas and eloquent words of Islam, the door of Dawah to the Christians should be wisely open. When the Christians see us restraining from observing Christmas, they will curiously ask us for the reason. This opportunity should be used by each single Muslim to discuss Islam and invite non-Muslims to Islam a Muslim cant enjoin in any aspect of Christmas in the disguise that Jesus is our Prophet too.
showing happiness and joy on Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Good Friday is like shaking hands with Satan and telling him to carry on the good work. Indeed Islam came to tear down the pillars of kufr and replace them with the pillars of Islam
All five ads are slated to go live on the DC Metrobus on Monday June 29 all over the Washington DC area. CREEPING SHARIA
I’d love to hear how they try to BS their way out of this one!
Coming soon to a city near you!
24 billboards went up in 18 cities, including Orlando, Portland, Ore., and San Antonio, Texas. Many of them were in cities that do not have large Muslim populations.
Did you know that Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad ALL FOLLOWED ISLAM?
The greatest sacrifice for God is made in Jihad, for in it a man sacrifices not only his own life and property in His cause but destroys those of others also.
People can expect to see the hot line (877) WHY-ISLAM and the Web site www.[redacted] on the sides of more than 140 buses because the ICNA wants to make a point. This is our complaint: We want to give the right picture of Islam. It is not about terrorism. It is about peace, ICNA representative Mariam Chan said.
I took this photo in San Franciscos Castro District, at the corner of 18th and Castro streets. As everyone knows, the Castro is the epicenter of gay activism in the United States (note the rainbow flag in the bank window). And even in this neighborhood, the ISLAM bus ads appear prominently and frequently.
However, I have not heard the slightest peep of protest about these ISLAM ads appearing in gay neighborhoods. But, you may ask, why should anyone protest? Because, as it turns out, ICNA is virulently anti-gay. On ICNAs own Web site is this passage, calling homosexuality a pollution of the soul:
Marriage is the proper form of satisfying the sexual activity. Adultery, fornication or homosexuality and such things are a pollution of the souls and the purity of genealogies.
I wonder what they’d have to say about this?
Tampa was not among ICNAs target markets, but Bilal Farooqi, a 23-year-old recent college graduate, requested the billboard and agreed to sponsor it. He felt the need to take action after another nonprofit last fall distributed Obsession, a controversial DVD about radical Islam. Take note, the billboard was only $1,500 and Muslims across the country are more than happy to give up some cash to spread sharia across the U.S. How many 23-year-old Americans are fighting the spread of sharia in the U.S.? Or are even interested?
Since the FBI and Congress have been warned about CAIR, maybe transportation and advertising venues should be warned of groups like CAIR and ICNAs ties to terrorism as well.
Ever wonder what the Quran has to say about terrorism? Why Muslim women wear veils? What Islam teaches about Jesus? A billboard advertising the toll-free number sprang up last month on FM 1960 near Interstate 45. Similar ones have also been posted in San Antonio, Dallas, El Paso and two dozen other U.S. cities.
More importantly, what did Jesus have to say about Islam? Nothing. There was no Islam when Jesus was alive. But, what does Islams holy book have to say about the Christians and Jews? From Quran 5:051: O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.
Heres a billboard that more aptly sums up the message of why not Islam.
BROWARD COUNTY, FL
Broward County, Florida, Transportation spokeswoman has been duped and not only allowed terrorist-related groups to buy ads on her buses, but is now speaking positively on behalf of said terror-related groups, ignoring facts and ignoring the offensive Islamic propaganda.
The educational effort began in Chicago and has spread to other areas, including Miami-Dade and Broward, where buses have been painted with the message for eight weeks, from early November to the end of December, according to Phyllis Berry, spokeswoman for the Broward County Transportation Department.
Berry said she has fielded many calls from people who wanted to know why the county was promoting Islam.
Its been very interesting. . . . We have received calls and e-mail from people who expressed concerns, but after explaining that we have a policy that does not allow anyones religion to be demeaned and there is such a thing as the First Amendment, people still may not like it but they understand, Berry said.
Apparently Berry doesnt understand that Islam continually demeans all other religions
