Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad not offensive to Jews and Christians!

Islam bus ad

Today and I proud to announce that Robert and I are going to file suit against Miami Dade Transit for killing our “Leaving Islam” campaign. We will sue for breach of contract and violation of the first amendment.

I am deeply grateful that David Yerushalmi, P.C. (sharia legal expert) and The Thomas More Law center will handle this matter as fully pro bono.  But there are costs involved. I am asking Atlas readers, SIOA and FDI supporters to please donate to the legal fund. Please. Yerushalmi does not raise funds from the public like TMLC, so any funds I can raise to offset his costs allows him to do more of these.

We need to do this. People who want a tax deduction can send their checks to: Society of Americans for National Existence (or just SANE) P.O.B. 6358 Chandler Ariz 85246 Re: FDI Legal Defense Fund Attached is SANE’s IRS letter: Download 501c3IRSAcceptanceLtr

In December 2008, the Miami Herald ran this piece on the dawah (invitation to Islam) that ran in Miami-Dade and Broward. Buses ran for  eight weeks, from early November to the end of December 2008,
according to Phyllis Berry, spokeswoman for the Broward County
Transportation Department.

A two-county advertising campaign asks those who have questions about
Islam to call a toll-free number. The aim is to educate.

BY LISA BOLIVAR
Special to The Miami Herald December 2008

City buses in Broward and Miami-Dade counties have been advertising
information on a religious topic that some people have found surprising
- Islam.

The advertisement reads ”Islam: Got Questions? Get answers,” and gives
this telephone phone number: . It is an effort to educate
Americans about a faith that has been villainized in the media, said Dr.
Sabeel Ahmed, a physician from Chicago who is director of the effort.

MANY CALLS

Berry said she has fielded many calls from people who wanted to know why
the county was promoting Islam.


”It’s been very interesting. . . . We have received calls and e-mail
from people who expressed concerns, but after explaining that we have a
policy that does not allow anyone’s religion to be demeaned and there is
such a thing as the First Amendment, people still may not like it but
they understand,” Berry said.


She said that in the past, buses have carried advertising for churches,
arranged by an independent company.

”It’s freedom of expression, but my initial thought was it shouldn’t be
allowed,” Berry said. “But it’s about fairness, it’s about the law and
it’s about what it’s like to live in America. We don’t always like the
law, but it’s there for a reason.”

Berry said many of the complaints were prompted by the mention of Judaic
prophets such as Abraham, Moses and Jesus in the same line with the
prophet Mohammed. But ”they did not demean anyone’s religion,” she said.

MANY QUESTIONS

Ahmed said many of the calls that came into his Chicago call center were
about the four prophets.

“The common question is: How come we are including Jesus with other
human beings because he is the son of God to them and we should not be
including him with other human beings.

“So we politely respond to them the position of Jesus in Islam, that he
is a prophet of God, he invited people to worship God, he worshiped God,
and he was given a revelation, just like the prophets of the past.”

When Altaf Ali, director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations,
Florida, learned of the Chicago project, he requested that it be
extended to South Florida. He said CAIR embraces the goals of the campaign.

    It’s not a plan - it’s a collective psychosis.

    Please bring back the Constitution!! We’re getting nervous here in Communist Canada - if you folks give in to the Reds, we are all truly fated to live in a Hell on Earth.

    State run health care allows the Medical Industrial complex to plug themselves DIRECTLY into the tax base, thus it is in their interest that you get sick!! If you don’t have the right to pick your medicine, that what rights DO you have left?

    The backbone of the US is the idea that one’s rights come from GOD - and I don’t mean Allah!! Such utter NONSENSE!!!!!

    This is fabulous!! I just finished sending a protest letter to Ms Damian at Dade Transit. If we don’t defend our freedom of speech we will lose it.

    CAIR would support the campaign, as they are terrorists, supporters of terrorists and get funded by the Saudi’s, who are terrorists.

    JESUS was NOT a prophet, and to include HIM in with the ‘prophets’ of ISLAM is not only insulting, it is blasphemy! By doing this, the bus company is pandering to the Muslims, out of fear of reprisals.
    Jesus is DIVINE, the only Begotton Son of YAHWEH, the ONLY GOD, Creator of Heaven and Earth. He is NOT to be put in a subservient position to any false god or’prophet’ such as allah or mohammad!

    When will the moronic media and all others realize that Islam is NOT a religion and therefore is NOT covered under the AMERICAN constitution-grrrrr…. Islam is a political, economic and social ideology aimed at removing all other ways of life and implementing Shariah Law. YOu people need to use your brains-check the facts. The “religion” is a cover. This cult is planning to take over-they are very patient.

    But “what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.”
    If Islam can run ads like that, perhaps it is ok under 1st Amendment, but OUR ads
    suggesting Fatwa on heads for leaving
    Islam are also protected by 1st Amendment.
    Personally, I’d refuse to ride a bus
    with a big Islam invitation on it.

    Muhammad Ali is arguably the greatest boxer ever…his guts and determination were inspiring!
