The thugs at Hamas-CAIR are fighting bloody hard to silence defenders of truth and freedom. The bodies are still be tallied in the global jihad in Algeria, Libya, Egypt, Israel, Indonesia, Niger, Nigeria, et al, while Hamas-CAIR attempts to call jihad anything other than what it is. I lay it out in my Wednesday column at WND.
Like some over-excited puppy, The Puff Ho is practically wetting itself over the Hamas-CAIR ads (here). Why are these useless idiots covering for ethnic cleansing, slaughter, misogyny, Islamic Jew hatred and kufarophobia? Where is the rational outrage over jihadists?
Using the Twitter hashtag #MyJihad, the organization encourages people to share their struggles -- or rather, their jihads -- online (as one Twitter user wrote, “#myjihad is to greet everyone I meet, even random strangers, with a smile”).
But Pamela Geller, the woman behind the "Defeat Jihad" ads who mocked the My Jihad campaign on her website, has also adopted the #MyJihad tag:
Geller told HuffPost that in light of the My Jihad campaign, she plans to run more of her own advertisements throughout town. But Dan Stessel, spokesman for the D.C. metro, claimed that there is "no advertising agreement signed for an [American Freedom Defense Initiative] ad run."
In a 2011 Gallup poll, 48 percent of Muslims reported religious or racial discrimination in the past year, often sparking concerns that Islamophobia may disadvantage and mislabel ordinary American Muslims.
Are they still pushing that bunk? Its been roundly and repeatedly debunked (here and here). Remember this notorious hate crime (but actually a honor killing by her family)? Where's the mea culpa?
Hamas-CAIR has run their ads in Chicago, San Francisco and now DC. I am still waiting for approval from Chicago, San Francisco and now DC. We submitted them first week of December. I am not going away. Our ads will run.
Islamic supremacists' legal jihad
Exclusive: Pamela Geller covers latest Hamas-CAIR attack on anti-savagery ads
You know the drill. Read the whole thing.
The Chicago branch of the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is trying to stop my organization’s campaign countering their bizarre jihad propaganda, threatening suit to keep our ads that tell the truth about jihad from running. Hamas-CAIR once again moves to silence the freedom of speech of those who stand against the jihad and Islamic supremacism. They are bent on imposing Shariah restrictions on criticism of Islam.
It all started when Hamas-CAIR developed a new propaganda ad campaign, a psyop, that kicked off on Chicago buses and is now running in San Francisco and Washington, D.C., as well. “#MyJihad” is a deceptive campaign designed to distract from and obscure the true meaning of jihad. It depicts smiling, attractive Muslims saying, “My jihad is to stay fit despite my busy schedule”; “my jihad is to build friendships across the aisle”; and the like.
The Islamic supremacists of Hamas-CAIR say that their MyJihad campaign is designed to respond to our Quran ad and fight “bigotry” and “Islamophobia.” According to the Chicagoist, CAIR-Chicago’s executive director, Ahmed Rehab, who originated the campaign, “told the Sun-Times the term ‘jihad’ has been twisted by groups such as Geller’s so that its true meaning is obscured and the word is most closely associated with ‘holy war.’”
Yes, Muslims are blowing things up and murdering infidels around the world today because I “obscured” the “true meaning” of the word jihad. What’s even worse is that enemedia reporters eagerly swallow Rehab’s garbage and never, ever call him on it. But in fact the real bigotry, the real hatred, is coming from devout Muslim jihad terrorists around the world every day: over 20,000 jihad attacks since 9/11, each one with the imprimatur of a Muslim cleric.
And so we countered. We created a jihad campaign speaking about the true meaning of jihad. Our new campaign focuses on how jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism. It uses actual quotes by jihadis and Islamic supremacists, including Osama bin Laden and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as well as statements from Hamas TV and one of the victims of the Fort Hood jihad massacre.
One ad depicts Osama bin Laden and the burning Twin Towers along with a bin Laden quote explaining why he took down the Twin Towers: “The first thing we are calling you to is Islam.” Another quotes an eyewitness to the jihad mass murders of Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, noting that he was shouting “Allahu akbar” as he murdered 13 Americans at Fort Hood. Another quotes a Hamas TV music video including the lyric, “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah.” A fourth quotes Times Square jihad car bomber Faisal Shahzad saying that jihad involving “weaponry” was “an obligation and duty in Islam on every Muslim.”
This usage of jihad as killing non-Muslims is much more influential and widespread among Muslims worldwide than the benign and whitewashed understanding of it being pushed by Hamas-CAIR. Also, the fact that some Muslims don’t think of jihad as involving violence does not cancel out the fact that many do. Our AFDI campaign shines the light of truth to break through the fog of CAIR’s deceptions.
So what did CAIR do? They commenced legal action in their jihad against free speech. I received a “cease and desist” letter from Rehab (Mr. Jihad), claiming ownership of the phrase “my jihad.” Tell that to the millions of Muslims waging jihad in the cause of Islam.
Read their lawyer’s letter.
Litigation jihad – that’s Ahmed’s jihad, what’s yours? Yes, now CAIR claims to own #myjihad despite the fact that I registered myjihad.us four days before they registered any use of the phrase “my jihad.” Hey, Ahmed, you owe me money!
The imperialistic and supremacist group is claiming ownership of holy war and what amounts to a Twitter hashtag (#myjihad). Is that a first? They love using American law to crush American freedoms. In this case of parody (as in most things), Hamas-CAIR Chicago is overreaching and out of control, but there is always some hungry lawyer eager to line his pockets with myjihad dollars (and AFDI’s).
Hamas-CAIR has been encouraging people to use the hashtag #myjihad – did they really think they could control who, what, where and when? Typical Islamic supremacism.
