"'Jihad' ads on CTA buses spark outrage" WGN TV CHICAGO— Dan Ponce reporting
As the savages continue to target innocent civilians in Israel from civilian residences, hospitals and mosques in Gaza, the enemedia continues to shill for these savages and their Muslim Brotherhood proxies here in America, like un-indicted co-conspirator Hamas-CAIR.
This television report is particularly reprehensible. Almost half of the segment is devoted to Hamas-CAIR's Ahmed Rehab's (sans lipstick) taqiyya, kitman and outrageous lies on jihad. Here again we see Islamic supremacist abuse of language as they manipulate the media, distort the truth and manufacture myths. Rehab claims that jihad is about "personal struggle," like getting to work in the morning. Rehab says "jihad is about going to school," "it's paying your taxes." I kid you not. And this schmuck of a reporter, Dan Ponce, lets him off unchallenged, never once citing Quran on jihad, or the avowed jihadis who cite Quran chapter and verse; nor does he even mention the close to 20,000 deadly jihadi attacks across the world since 9/11. Nowhere in the Quran does it speak to a "spirtual jihad." Jihad is holy war. Neither does Ponce question Rehab on CAIR's terror ties and the terror-related convictions of Hamas-CAIR's leadership.
How much they paying you, Ponce?
Rehab sprinkles this steaming pile of dung with his typical ad hominem attacks, calling me and the ads racist (jihad is not a race) and saying that I am calling all Muslims jihadists (actually that's exactly what Rehab is doing). He does it by saying that jihad is central to Islam, and that therefore "Defeat Jihad" means "Defeat All Muslims" -- which doesn't really follow at all. Then he says that because the ad refers to all Muslims, it is racist -- but Islam is not a race. So he makes two leaps of logic that reporter Dan Ponce allows just to fly by. But worse still, Ponce never called me for comment. Our organization is not represented at all. Neither are the Copts, Hindus, and Buddhists that are also represented in the expanded campaign running in Chicago. Five different "Defeat jihad" ads are running, but this quisling only mentions the Israel ad. Judeophobic much, Ponce?
Why didn't Ponce interview the President of Voice of the Copts, Ashref Ramelah; or Nonie Darwish of Former Muslims United (FMU); or Ali Sina of Faith Freedom International, an organization of former Muslims? Why didn't he contact Akhand Hindusthan Morcha (a part of Vishwa Hindu Parishad), Sardar Kiranpal Singh Tyagi, President; or Akhil Bhartiya Hindu Mahasabha, Sardar Raviranjan Singh (Member High Power Steering Committee); or Sant Sipahi Vichar Manch, Sardar Hari Singh Matharu (Convener); or Nanak Shahi Parivar, Sardar Jaspal Singh Manchanda (Head of the Organization) or any other members of our Freedom Coalition that support our ad and represent tens of millions of victims of jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural annihilations and enslavements?
Rehab puts on a whole other costume for this TV appearance. Rehab's look has been rehabbed. He has changed his lipstick and blue shades for poindexter glasses and a father-knows-best sweater partnered with a loosely knotted preppy tie. Rehab, you sure nuff got us fooled now.
Dan Ponce never asked Rehab why he
- Refused to wholly condemn Hamas.
- Minimized extremist pockets in U.S. society.
- Accused the government of fabricating its own terrorists.
- Alleged that terrorism prosecutions are not based on evidence, but attempts to silence Muslims and activists for Palestine.
Ponce of WGN never mentions Hamas-CAIR's terror ties, their Muslim Brotherhood status or that they are unidicted co-conspirators in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation's history, the Holy Land Foundation trial.

"'Jihad' ads on CTA buses spark outrage" WGN TV CHICAGO—
Some controversial ads are now on the sides of buses and CTA stations, and they're sparking outrage in the Muslim community.
The ad reads “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat jihad.”
It's already been running in other cities including New York, Detroit and Washington D.C. The ad is financed by Pamela Geller, a conservative blogger with an organization called the American Freedom Defense Initiative.
Several Muslim groups in Chicago say the ad campaign is racist.
"When you say defeat jihad, she's essentially saying defeat all Muslim,” says Ahmed Rehab, Executive Director, CAIR Chicago. “It's incredibly misinformed."
Ahmed Rehab is executive director of the Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. He says most people associate the word 'jihad' with terrorism, which he says is completely inaccurate.
"Jihad for us is daily struggle, it is going to school, whatever it is people go through,” he says.
The CTA released a statement reading in part: “The CTA understands that this ad may be offensive to our customers. While the courts have ruled this ad is a form of protected speech under the First Amendment, we object to its divisive message.”
