The Christian Action Network is taking the fight against radical Islam to a new level by launching a massive campaign to put billboards up in South Carolina promoting its latest documentary, ‘Islam Rising.’ But how long before the Terrorist Front Group CAIR sues to have them taken down?

Each billboard simply states, “Islam Rising—Be Warned,” in reference to the title of the film, “Islam Rising: Geert Wilders’ Warning to the West.”
“Islam Rising” shows how radical Islam has made tremendous progress in conquering Europe, gaining footholds in communities and governments. To show how dangerous the situation has become, the film tells the story of Geert Wilders, a highly controversial member of the Netherlands’ parliament currently on trial for alleged hate speech for criticizing Islam.
Wilders lives in constant fear of his life for making a film titled “Fitna” showing how verses in the Koran, Islam’s holy book, are motivating the extremists to act with violence. Al-Qaeda has vowed to kill him. As a Dutch parliamentarian and outspoken critic of radical Islam, Mr. Wilders must travel with four bodyguards and sleep in a safe house, each and every night.
For the first time in the United States, “Fitna” will be distributed as part of the “Islam Rising” documentary.
“We chose to put the first billboards up in South Carolina because of the terrorist training camp that currently exists in York,” Martin Mawyer, the President of the Christian Action Network said.
Mawyer was referring to a topic covered in his organization’s previous film, “Homegrown Jihad,” about how a group called the Muslims of the Americas has set up compounds throughout the country that are used to recruit and sometimes train followers.
Already, two billboards have been put on busy South Carolina interstates. The 14×46 displays are located on I-26 at mile-marker 125 and US 301N in Orangeburg.
CAN is currently negotiating for four more billboards to be put up in the state and billboards are set to go up in Tennessee within weeks.
