Hamas-linked CAIR is on a jihad against Lowes. And the sharia compliant media is only to eager to serve. Notice how much press the un-indicted co-conspirator, Muslim Brotherhood group, CAIR, is getting over "All American Muslim" advertiser withdrawal. Why does big media endorse and legitimize subversive Hamas-tied jihadist groups?
Where are the counter-jihad voices? This is the cultural sharia. The media self-enforcing the blasphemy laws under the sharia, don't criticize or offend Islam.
Bottom line is people are not watching. The fact is that the show specifically situates itself as a response to "Islamophobia" -- this was clear from the opening moments of the first show. But it is severely misleading, because it doesn't deal with the kind of Muslims who would ever have caused anyone any concern in the first place. And I have been saying that since the show premiered. Americans do not want to be called bigots because they are concerned with the very real threat of jihad. Further the appeal of watching a conversion to Islam or the banning of the beloved pet dog is questionable.
Support Lowes. Shop Lowes. Make it their biggest Christimas ever. Pushback.
CAIR Asks Lowe's to Address Anti-Muslim Hate Prompted by TV Ad Pull-Out
Community leaders seek meeting with company to discuss decision to pull spots from TLC's 'All-American Muslim'
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 12/13/2011) -- The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today called on Lowe's, the world's second largest home improvement retailer, to address the anti-Muslim hate rhetoric prompted by that company's decision to pull its commercials from TLC's new reality series "All-American Muslim."
ACTION REQUESTED: CONTACT Lowe's at 1-800-445-6937, E-Mail:
Adweek notes that the Lowe's Facebook statement on the controversy "has drawn more than 22,000 comments, a significant portion of which are racist and contain anti-Muslim/anti-Islamic hate speech."
CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper told Adweek: "If Lowe's was concerned about spreading hate speech, you would think that they would filter and delete the worst [comments]. It's hard to tell if leaving them up is intentional or not."
National community leaders are also requesting a meeting with Lowe's officials to seek a resolution to the controversy that is "consistent with America's longstanding tradition of religious tolerance and inclusion."
In a letter sent late yesterday to Lowe's CEO and President Robert Niblock,CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad noted the "tremendous controversy" that has been generated by Lowe's decision to "bow to the dictates of Islamophobes."

Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror:
* Ghassan Elashi, founder of CAIR's Texas chapter, in 2009 received a 65-year prison sentence for funneling over $12 million from the Islamic charity known as the Holy Land Foundation to the jihad terrorist group Hamas, which is responsible for murdering hundreds of Israeli civilians
* Mousa Abu Marzook, a former CAIR official, was designated by the U.S. government in 1995 as a "terrorist and Hamas leader." He now is a Hamas leader in Syria.
* Randall Royer, CAIR's former civil rights coordinator, in 2004 began serving a 20-year prison sentence for aiding al-Qaida and the Taliban against American troops in Afghanistan and recruiting for Lashkar e-Taiba, the jihadist group responsible for the 2008 Mumbai jihad massacres.
* Bassem Khafagi, CAIR's former community relations director, was arrested for involvement with the Islamic Assembly of North America, which was linked to al-Qaida. After pleading guilty to visa and bank fraud charges, Khafagi was deported.
* Rabih Haddad, a former CAIR fundraiser, was deported for his work with the Global Relief Foundation (which he co-founded), a terror-financing organization.
In 1998 Omar Ahmad, CAIR's co-founder and longtime Board Chairman, said: "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."
After he received unwelcome publicity as a result of this statement, Ahmad denied saying it, several years after the fact. However, the original reporter, Lisa Gardiner of the Fremont Argus, stands by her story.
CAIR's spokesman Ibrahim Hooper once said: "I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future."

Dispute escalates to become battle over America's freedoms
A Florida organization's campaign to publicize its criticism of a new television program on The Learning Channel that it says sanitizes Islam – and one company's decision to take its advertising dollars elsewhere – has escalated to an argument about fundamental freedoms for Americans.
That's according to Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs, who told WND the controversy over "All-America Muslim," the Florida Family Association and the home improvement store Lowe's is "a matter of standing up for the freedom of Americans."
"Apparently, now the Islamic supremacists in the U.S. are so emboldened that they don't hesitate to force U.S. companies to advertise where they don't wish to, and to mount thuggish attacks against freedom fighters. This must not stand," she said.
"The fact is that the show specifically situates itself as a response to 'Islamophobia' – this was clear from the opening moments of the first show. But it is severely misleading, because it doesn't deal with the kind of Muslims who would ever have caused anyone any concern in the first place. And I have been saying that since the show premiered," said Geller.
