‘Miss Information’ is NOT spreading misinformation about Islam, just information Muslims would prefer you not know about
OKLAHOMA: A local group called The Pledge Project, led by a woman named Miss Information, has been handing out flyers about Muslims, Sharia, and the politics of the Middle East, entitled: What the Bible says about Jesus / What the Quran says about Muhammad.
Reddit Report Essentially the sheet had two columns, contrasting the two religious leaders of two of the large Abrahamic faiths in the world. And on the flipside of the flyer there are statements that say things including This neighborhood will never be Sharia Compliant, Palestine is not a country, it is a terrorist organization, and Why did President Obama congratulate the so-called ‘president’ of Palestine, Mahmoud Abbas, on his record of peace?
Contacting Adam Soltani, executive director of the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-OK), we inquired on whether he was familiar with this flyer and what was being shared, particularly in light of statements we had reported on yesterday while covering a political event sponsored by the Oklahoma Conservative Political Action Committee.
At the OCPAC event, U.S. Rep. James Lankford, who is running for Tom Coburns Senate seat, told an audience of 200 that Sharia law should be prohibited and insinuated it is dangerous, likely inciting more reactionary elements in the audience to possibly take action against American Muslims.
As it turned out, Soltani informed us, his office has experienced several harried visits by the same Miss Information who dropped off similar anti-Muslim hate flyers complete with her email address stamped on the leaflets. And while Soltani had not spoken to the woman, his assistant, Thomaira Babbit, had seen her twice this month both times on a Thursday.
The woman Miss Information asked Babbit why she was working here, told Babbit that she didnt look like someone who should be working here and also told the CAIR employee that she was a bad Christian. I told her Maam, Im not a Christian either. I think my saying that scared her off, Babbit said.
Babbit said Miss Informations flyers, which also included a letter from a former Muslim claiming that Muslims are conspiring to destroy infidels in America and the West.
Babbit said Soltani, who was out of the office Thursday, has informed local imam, Dr. Imad Enchassi, about the letters and it turns out that similar Miss Information letters have been showing up around the Grand Mosque of Oklahoma City on NW 48th Street.
This time last year, Oklahoma Citys Grand Mosque was the target of vandals who spray painted racial slurs and derogatory symbols on the building. Considered a hate crime, the FBI was involved in that investigation.
