Helping Muslim girls escape dangerous situations is "anti-Muslim," but ads run by Muslim Brotherhood groups with ties to Hamas are "pro-diversity." There is no diversity under the sharia. Does Bill Varian consider being anti-honor violence anti-Muslim? Bill Varian, the clueless clown who wrote this pro-jihad tripe, gave considerable ink to Hezb'Allah supporter Hasan Shibly, but never contacted me or AFDI for comment. He says that he did, but he is a dishonest merchant. He never made contact.
Shibly has a track record of defending jihad terrorist groups and acting as an apologist for the worldwide jihad and Islamic supremacism. Following the 2006 Israel-Lebanon War, Shibly granted legitimacy to Hezb'allah by characterizing it as a "resistance movement" that provides valued social services to the Lebanese people. "They're absolutely not a terrorist organization," Shibly said, and "any war against them is illegitimate" -- more on that here. And Shibly is the local rep for Hamas-tied CAIR, an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror funding trial in our nation's history, the Holy Land Foundation trial. Holy Land, an Islamic "charity," was funneling charitable donations to Hamas.
"On Hillsborough bus ads, pro-diversity message draws anti-Islam response," By Bill Varian, Tampa Bay Times, January 6, 2014 Courtesy of Hillsborough Area Regional Transit
TAMPA — Ads on Hillsborough Area Regional Transit buses promoting diversity by a group that seeks to improve American and Islamic relations have spurred a response from a group that promises "refuge from Islam."
The American Freedom Defense Initiative has won approval to purchase ad space on county buses denouncing "honor" killings, the practice of killing a family member, typically a woman, who has brought shame to the household. The ad shows images of seven girls who supposedly were victims of such killings.
