American Freedom Defense Initiative Launches Anti-Muslim Ad Campaign On D.C. Buses

Huff Post: by Antonia Blumberg —

A new ad campaign hit Washington D.C. on Monday with a strong anti-Muslim message.

The American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), spearheaded by Pamela Geller, launched an ad showing Adolf Hitler meeting with Palestinian nationalist and grand mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini.

The 15-foot message is now displayed on 20 D.C. buses, The Washington Post reported, and will run for roughly a month.

AFDI reportedly launched the ads in response to an anti-Israeli occupation ad by the American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) that read, “We’re sweating April 15 so Israelis don’t have to – Stop U.S. aid to Israel’s occupation!”

“My intent is to leapfrog over a media that is not even-handed, that is advancing the propaganda against the Jewish state,” Geller told WJLA.

AMP spokesperson Kristin Szremski told The Washington Post the group would not respond to AFDI’s ad.

“We typically don’t react to Pamela Geller, because this is the kind of thing she does, countering political speech with racist, Islamophobic speech.”

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) also responded to the ad in a press release, saying it would offer free Qurans to anyone who wished to verify the inaccuracy of ADFI’s message.

“We encourage those who view Geller’s false and inflammatory ads to visit CAIR’s ‘Explore the Quran’ website to request a free copy of the Quran so they can read it for themselves,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. “Anyone who reads the Quran will discover that it honors Jews and Christians for believing in one God and calls on all believers to live in peace and harmony.”

    Not all of them are alike; a party of the people of the Scripture stand for the right, they recite the Verses of Allâh during the hours of the night, prostrating themselves in prayer. (113) They believe in Allah and the Last Day; they enjoin Al-Ma’ruf (Islamic Monotheism, and following Prophet Muhammad SAW) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and opposing Prophet Muhammad SAW); and they hasten in (all) good works; and they are among the righteous. (114) And whatever good they do, nothing will be rejected of them; for Allah knows well those who are Al-Muttaq QS 3;(115)
    O children of Israel! call to mind the (special) favour which I bestowed upon you, and that I preferred you to all nations).
    QS 2;(47)
    And We wished to be gracious to those who were being depressed on the land, to make them leaders and make them heirs, QS 28;5To establish a firm place for them in the land, and to show Fir’aun, Haman, and their hosts, at their hands, the very things against which they were taking precautions.QS 28;6
    O you who believe! Take not the Jews (EXTREMIST)as Auliyâ’ (friends, protectors, helpers), they are but Auliyâ’ of each other. And if any amongst you takes them (as Auliyâ’), then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allâh guides not those people who are the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers and unjust). QS 5:51.
    You shall any followers of the scripture(Extremist ) would rather see you revert to disbelief, now that you have Mbelieved. This is due to jealousy on their part, after the truth has become evident to them. pardon them, and leave them alone, until GOD issues His judgment. GOD is Omnipotent.), . (QS.2:109.
    Thou wilt find the most vehement of mankind in hostility to those who believe (to be) the extremist Jews and the idolaters QS 5;82.
    Extremist ( Jews, Christian, Muslim and Hindu) are bad /evil people, intolerance, do not respect differences, against Allah’s laws, they follow evil instead of Allah. That is why we can see their deeds or action are violence,conflict, and kill innocent people cruelly etc.
    May Allah guide all my brothers to the right path.Amen
    For You from My Heart.
    All those who read shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; O Allah, be my witness, that I have conveyed your message to your people.
    With all my love
