A billboard of a woman in a niqab without any text went up on I-94 at the beginning of June, prompting calls to the sign company from the public. Copy was added to the billboard in July, which now reads “Should America Fear Sharia?”
AlphaNewsMN The billboard is sponsored by the Center for Security Policy, a Washington, D.C. based national security think tank. The site shouldamericafearsharia.org consists mostly of links to videos discussing different topics about Islam and Islamic extremism. The home page urges visitors to sign a petition to ban Sharia Law in the United States.
That roving gang of Somali refugee youths in an upscale suburb of Minnesota two weeks ago told a homeowner that they could kidnap and rape her because Sharia law said they could.
In the wake of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, the Center’s executive vice president Jim Hanson called the attack, “completely in keeping with totalitarian Islamic code called Shariah.”
The billboard was contracted out by the Center with Franklin Outdoor Advertising, a billboard company in Minnesota and Wisconsin. “The billboard went up the beginning of June,” Franklin salesperson Chris Barta said, “Last Friday we switched it out and put up the one with the website.”
Considering the kind of misleading/false billboards put up around the U.S. by Muslims (below), the ‘Should America fear Sharia?’ billboard needs to be followed up by many more of that kind.
Should America Fear Sharia? is a project of the Center for Security Policy. For twenty-five years, the Center for Security Policy has pioneered the organization, management and direction of public policy coalitions to promote U.S. national security. Even more importantly, the Center’s mission has been to secure the adoption of the products of such efforts by skillfully enlisting support from executive branch officials, key legislators, other public policy organizations, opinion-shapers in the media and the public at large.
There have been other controversial anti-Islam billboards (below) in the U.S which have evoked angry complaints from the Muslims demanding that they be removed:
