The uber-left Think Progress is coming to the defense of vicious apartheid-like policies under the sharia. Think Progress's feeble attempt to justify creed apartheid in Saudi Arabia is laughable. It is noteworthy that Hayes Brown neglects to mention all of the other Islamic Apartheid ads running on DC train platforms in defense of women, Gays, Jews, Christians, and Blacks living under the Islamic apartheid of the sharia.... thoseads here and here.
Hayes of TP also fails to point out that our ad was a response to this Nazi-like blood libel running on train platforms in New York and San Francisco (with plans to hit DC as well). The bottom line is that the sharia is an apartheid system of governance.
How measured Hayes Brown is in discussing the most brutal and bloody ideology n the face of the earth. And how unhinged and defamatory Hayes is of my defense of freedom. Wild, right?
"Pam Gellar [sic]-Linked Group Puts Out New Anti-Muslim Ad In DC Metro" By Hayes Brown Think Progress, May 20, 2013 at 11:56 am
Yet another Islamophobic ad from a group linked to Pamela Geller has appeared in the Washington, DC Metrorail system, this one lamenting what it claims to be “apartheid” against non-Muslims and calling for the U.S. to cut off all funding to “Islamic” states.
In the newest poster, a Saudi Arabian highway sign is pictured, which instructs drivers travelling to Mecca to keep to the left, while non-Muslims must stay to the right to travel to the nearby city of Jeddah instead. “This is Islamic Apartheid,” the ad declares, imploring that the government “Stop U.S. Aid to Islamic Countries.”
It is unclear what the ad means when it suggests that Saudi Arabia is carrying out “apartheid” against non-Muslims. In apartheid South Africa, the ruling class carried out a series of policies that stripped black Africans of their citizenship, segregated their education, medical care, and other government services, and denied them of the right to assemble or own property. Riyadh’s ban on non-Muslims entering Mecca is definitely a form of segregation, but is a one-off rule, given the city’s unique role in Islamic theology, and one that does not hold true in even the second-most holy city, Medina.
It is true that many other troubling instances of segregation occur throughout Saudi society, particularly when it relates to the treatment of women. It can even be argued that a form of “gender apartheid” exists within the Kingdom, where women are systematically denied legal rights and status.
Uh, what's this, genius? This is up on the same platforms in DC.
But the example Geller puts forward in her ad does not address that inequality, and fails to reach the same level as seen in the white dominance in Apartheid South Africa. Instead, it seems far more likely that Geller is looking to raise baseless fears of similar policies taking hold in the United States.
No, I am raising awareness of Islamic apartheid Islamic countries under the sharia. The ad is what it is. A is A.
