DEFENDING THE WEST
Exclusive: Pamela Geller exposes campaign to whitewash slaughter of innocents WND, December 17, 2012
The Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, is running another new propaganda ad campaign. This time it’s a deceptive #MyJihad bus ad designed to distract from and obscure the true meaning of jihad.
Freedom fighters have successfully educated the American people about the most brutal and extreme system of governance, the Shariah: Americans know how inhuman it is, and Muslim Brotherhood operatives are still reeling from that stunning defeat. So now they hope to whitewash jihad? That’s oceans of blood they would have to conceal. Oceans of blood.
Americans need to understand Islamic jihad so that we can counter it effectively. For jihad still threatens this nation. Just last week, a devout Muslim jihadist, Amanullah Zazi, was sentenced for his role in a jihad plot. He was involved in a “spectacular” bomb plot to blow up the New York City subway system on the anniversary of 9/11 to murder tens of thousands of Americans. The jihadist cell crossed the country, from New York to Denver. Prosecutors called it the most serious terrorism threat since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. This jihadist should have gotten 30 years; instead, he got – three. The judge in this case is a buffoon, and he will have blood on his hands. He will have much to answer for. A devout and revered imam, pursuing his jihad, was also arrested in the plot: interfaith dialogue by day, jihad by night.
Also last week, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, Abu Bakr Shekau, the leader of the Nigerian group known as People Committed to the Propagation of the Prophet’s Teachings and Jihad, more famously known as Boko Haram, “threatened U.S. President Barack Obama with a surprise, expressed solidarity with global jihad groups, and told Nigerian police to either repent or be killed.”
In Pakistan, Islamic jihadists threatened to bomb a church school unless it came across with a payment of $51,000. And in Germany, prosecutors revealed that Islamic jihadists were behind a bomb that was left in a Bonn railway station. Say what? I thought it was the Quakers. And to my utter shock, it was Islamists.
Honest moderate Muslims need to stand up against this and work for Islamic reform rather than blame my ads for pointing out the truth.
To continue to tell the truth, we have purchased all the clocks, more than 220 of them, in all New York subway stations for our new jihad awareness Quran ad. It depicts the burning towers and a Quran quote that illuminates the motivation of those who attacked them: “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers” (3:151).
We bought clocks system wide – the MTA’s term is “clock domination.” This is our biggest ad buy ever, made possible by overwhelming support from the American people, in response to our prior ads.
I love this buy for so many reasons. First, because metaphorically it’s so powerful. The clock is ticking, from a civilizational point of view. Bombs, at least in movies, tick and are set off by clocks. The urgency of our message is mirrored in the placement. Also, these are much harder to deface. Islamic supremacist thugs and goons destroyed our other ads within an hour. As the clocks hang from the ceiling, they won’t be able to get to these. And if the destroyers destroy the clock, it’s a much bigger expense, and the criminal penalties are much stiffer.
