NPR is hard at work using our taxpayer dollars to advance the propaganda of jihadists. The Goebbels-style ad campaign of Hamas-CAIR is getting enormous support from an outrageously compromised NPR. You can put a happy child's face on mass murder, but it's still mass murder.
Monique Parsons goes overboard in her fervor to please Hamas in America (CAIR). She hits the ground running in her first sentence about "an advertising battle going on over the Arabic term jihad." It's not that "Arabic" is wrong. But it's misleading. Jihad is a religious mandate, and it's an Islamic term, it is a religious term. Arabic is the language of Islam.
Parsons at NPR says our ads "present jihadists as violent." Uh, no, they are violent. They are killing non-Muslims and more secular Muslims at mind numbing speed. Counter jihad blogs cover the mass slaughter, subjugation, oppression and misogyny every day from Nigeria to Thailand, Ethiopia to Bangladesh, Egypt to Zanzibar, Mali, Malaysia, Iran, et al.
Parsons goes on to make the segment about the duel meaning of jihad. Tell that to the hundreds of millions of victims of jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural annihilations and enslavements. The sick slave mentality of the media is vomit-inducing.
Parsons happily goes along with Hamas-CAIR's ruse of using women and children as human shields, as a prop for jihad. The tragic irony here is that countless women and children are victims of the jihadists war on innocent civilians. The horror. Here again we see the poisonous fruit of the left's primitive motives -- they work only off emotion and not reason. Parson feels and thus acts, despite the body count.
Parsons never mentions CAIR's un-indicted co-conspirator status in the largest Hamas funding trial in our nation's history or that the US government named them a Muslim Brotherhood proxy in that same criminal court case. Many members of their leadership are serving jail time for terror related offenses, but in Parsons's way of thinking (I should say feeling), this is clearly unrelated to a news story on jihad. Got that?
But this is another reason why our ads are so effective. These ads expose the grotesque bias of a media aligned with the jihad force. This may get reporters in with their leftist peers and compromised editors, but the millions of Americans and freedom lovers abroad think these tools are idiots. They know. The tens of thousands who showed up at our ground zero mosque protests know. The millions of Americans who opposed it and support anti-sharia laws know.

In Chicago, Dueling Ads Over The Meaning Of 'Jihad' NPR, :
All Things Considered
There is an advertising battle going on over the Arabic term jihad. In Chicago, a group has launched a bus and subway ad campaign meant to reclaim the term jihad from another series of ads that presents jihadists as violent.
UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: Smile.
SYED: No talking. Smile.
PARSONS: Fifteen floors above the Chicago Loop, photographer Sadaf Syed lays on her back, aiming her camera at a huddle of grinning children.
SYED: A little more. Good job. Look at me, guys. Yeah, that's good.
UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: Yay.
PARSONS: They try different poses, standing together, flashing peace signs, laying on the floor in the shape of a peace sign. The photos are for My Jihad's second national ad campaign. Mona Elgindy is watching her kids pose.
MONA ELGINDY: I think it's a good cause. I think that part of it makes me feel like it's worth it.
PARSONS: Elgindy is an attorney who lives in suburban Chicago, but she took a day off and pulled 12-year-old Hidea, 9-year-old Mustafa and 7-year-old Taha out of school to take part in the My Jihad campaign. These new ads will urge kids to stand up to bullying.
ELGINDY: I felt it was something very relevant that they would understand and appreciate. They were excited.
PARSONS: American-Muslims are often afraid to even use the word jihad or to talk about their faith. Now, in New York, Missouri and Wisconsin, they're mounting their own My Jihad campaign. Even non-Muslims are posting support on their Facebook page, and college students are organizing jihad days. Kambiz Ghanea Bassiri teaches about Islam in America at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. He's not surprised this campaign is gaining momentum.
KAMBIZ GHANEA BASSIRI: It's tremendously important because in general public, people often talk about the sort of struggle for the soul of Islam and that there's a battle for, you know, redeeming Islam. But that's not really the challenge that most American Muslims face. The challenge that they face is raising their children, raising the next generation.
PARSONS: At the photo shoot, 11-year-old Aliya Blackburn says her jihad is to work hard in school and nail her back flip in gymnastics. Her brother Robbie says his jihad is to get better at basketball. Look for their faces in the next My Jihad ad campaign. For NPR News, I'm Monique Parsons.
