Islamic Subway-Ad
« on: July 27, 2008, 11:26:53 AM »
Allah board!

An Islamic group plans to blitz 1,000 subway cars with advertisements this September in a campaign being promoted by a Brooklyn imam whom federal officials have linked to a plot to blow up city landmarks.

The group says its mission is to explain the true nature of Islam to non-Muslims who believe the religion is bent on acts of violence - but Siraj Wahhaj, the inflammatory imam who appears in a promotional YouTube video for the project, has defended convicted bomb-plotters and called the FBI and CIA the "real terrorists."

US Attorney Mary Jo White even named Wahhaj one of 170 unindicted co-conspirators in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the thwarted plan to blow up a slew of buildings.

"In time, this so-called democracy will crumble, and there will be nothing, and the only thing that will remain will be Islam," Wahhaj said in one of his sermons.

The stark, black-and-white ads of the Subway Project promote Islam with the goals of clearing up long-held misconceptions about the faith and reaching out to those interested in becoming Muslim, according to the Islamic Circle of North America, the group behind the campaign.

Timed to run during the month of Ramadan, the ads come in pairs, reading "Q: Prophet Muhammad?" or "Q: Islam?" and the corresponding answer is always "A: You deserve to know."

Those interested in knowing more are directed to call (877) WHY-ISLAM or to visit whyislam.org, which provide literature that teaches and proselytizes about the faith.

The group insists it is not looking to transform subway cars into the "G-had train."

"Anyone who looks at this ad objectively can see that it is not preaching anything," Azeem Khan, the group's assistant secretary general, told The Post. "There is a lot of Islamaphobia out there. We provide people with a chance to speak with an actual Muslim who is informed."

Wahhaj, imam of Al-Taqwa mosque, is a former member of the Nation of Islam and was the first Muslim to give an invocation at the House of Representatives.

Formal charges were never filed against him by White, although he did serve as a character witness for the defense in the trial of Omar Abdel-Rahman, "the blind sheik" who is now serving a life sentence for his role in plotting the 1993 WTC bombings.

In the promotional video for the Subway Project, Wahhaj is the first to speak.

"Every day in this city, some 4.9 million people ride the subways - that is a lot of people," he says. "Imagine them seeing the word Islam. Imagine them seeing the word Muhammad."

The MTA confirmed that the group has signed a contract for the ad campaign but would not comment further.

very every ad you see, deface it and rip it off...or put the jtf/e website on top of it...or flyers that say, "Want to konw the real truth about Islam? and then post a line out of the Koran of how "peaceful it is"...
If someone says something bad about you, say something nice about them. That way, both of you would be lying.

I fully agree.

They're not even being slightly subtle about their intention to make America a sharia state.

I don't think putting this website name on top of it would be a good idea. You could get charged with vandalism or at least
the owner of this board could. But ripping it off or blacking it out is a good idea.

how about putting quotes of koran next to each ad?

There is a time element here. You don't want to get caught doing this because you could get arrested. Writing out one of the
many hateful passages from the Qur'an takes time, unless you could make up stick-ons of the quotes and just stick them
over the posters. That might work.

How about stopping it - legally.  Congressman Peter King has taken a stand against it, and I'm going to call him tomorrow to see if citizens can help him bring it down.  I've also emailed Jeremy Olshan who broke the story in the NY Post with the same question, and I've put out word to fellow ACT members, who have spread it around. 

There are other legal possibilities to explore, such as finally getting Islam defined not as a religion but as a hostile, alien entity, with which the US may not do business.  Back in the Clinton era two executive orders were passed to that effect (12947 & 13224 -they come up quick with a google search).  I know that's asking for a lot, given the prevailing PC mood.  But it's got to happen sometime that Islam gets defined properly.  If Muslims get over with this, they will have made as much of what they call "an opening" as with the Flying Imams case, where anyone who alerted the authorities about suspicious behaviour would be liable for a law suit.  Fortunately for America, that action was contested.

If anybody on this forum knows a patriotic lawyer, now is the time to get them involved.  I've got a few leads I am following, but all the attention this case can draw would be good.

It is so important to stop this madness!   If Muslims get their way with this, it will be a big breakthrough for them, and a big loss for us and for freedom and sanity.  They will have established credibility as a religion, when they need to be redefined as a hostile foreign entity - something that American laws do not permit us to give way to.   The more they win battles for Political Correctness, the harder they will be to push back. 

Here are ways you can take action against this outrage.  Support Congressman Pete King's move to stop it.  Email him at [email protected].  Or call him at 202 225 7896 in Washington DC, or 516 541 4225 in Massapequa Park, or 631 541 4225 in Suffolk County.  You don't have to be a constituent to say you support his actions. 
Email NY Post reporter Jeremy Olshan, who broke this story and tell him you want more like this:  [email protected]
Call Governor Patterson:   518 474 8390.   Do it now and say you want a subway free of terror and free of lying propaganda.
