MUSLIMS ADDRESS TERRORISM IN NATIONAL AD CAMPAIGN
CAIR ad says terrorism is "not condoned by Islam or any other religion"
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 3/7/03) - The issue of religiously-motivated terrorism will be addressed in the fourth installment of a national advertising campaign designed to foster greater understanding of Islam and to counter what ad sponsors say is a rising tide of anti-Muslim rhetoric in the United States.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a prominent national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group, launched the year-long "Islam in America" campaign February 16 with an ad on the New York Times editorial page.
The first three ads featured examples of ethnic diversity in the American Muslim community, a Muslim Girl Scout troop in California and a Muslim woman explaining why modest Islamic attire is both liberating and empowering.
The text of the latest CAIR ad reads:
"Over the course of history, many religions have fallen victim to violent interpretations.
"The texts and teachings of all faiths are vulnerable to manipulation and abuse by violent extremists. Terrorism is a tactic employed by deluded individuals or groups to advance an ideological or political cause. It is not condoned by Islam or any other religion.
"American Muslims condemn all acts of terrorism and we are as outraged as our fellow Americans by atrocities committed in the name of God and our religion.
"Islam, Christianity, Judaism and many other faiths share the basic values necessary to create a world where tolerance and peace prevail. We have an opportunity to build bridges between our faiths and challenge those who attempt to repeat history by dividing humanity along religious and ethnic lines.
"It's up to people of conscience to seek and embrace the truth."
"We often hear that Muslims have not condemned terrorism enough since the 9/11 attacks. This advertisement is designed to address that issue and show clearly Islam's and the American Muslim community's strong opposition to acts of violence against civilians, whether they are committed by individuals, groups or states," said CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad.
Awad noted that the ad's message is consistent with the long-standing and repeated condemnation of terrorism by all major American Muslim organizations.
The weekly CAIR ads, each explaining one aspect of Islam, are being distributed to Muslim communities around America for placement in local newspapers. All the advertisements previously published in the New York Times are available at: http://www.americanmuslims.info/archive.asp
CAIR is America's largest Islamic civil liberties group. It is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and has 15 regional offices nationwide and in Canada. Since its founding in 1994, CAIR has defended the civil and religious rights of all Americans.
Many of us realize how much of a lie it is. I guess you dont.
Uh-huh. Sure. We saw the celebrations amongst moslems after 9/11. The outrage from the moslem crowd was sure deafening! You bet. Uh-huh!
doesn't run a whorehouse heaven, with perpetual boy virgins(pearl-like boys) and girl virgins like the supposed "god" allah does!!
I would like to remind cair that they themselves are liars and weasels!! islam has ALWAYS advocated the MURDER of innocents IF it furthers the cause of islam.
GET real, buddy....islam is a 6th century NIGHTMARE on a worldwide scale!!
If we followed all the injunctions of the bible we would behave not much different from the most radical of Muslims. Neither do, nor must, all Muslims so treat the Koran.
Lets put a stop to this lie that keeps getting repeated on these posts. Moral relativists keep pulling out the distinct commands that God gave to the Hebrews to utterly destroy the Canaanites as they came into the Promised Land - and equate it with the passages in the Koran and Hadith that seem to the normal reader to say 'if you can't conver the Infidel (meaning me -and most Americans) - then kill them'. A command issued in a specific place and time 3500 hundred years ago against a specific people vs. an open ended on-going command against 'us'.
Furthermore the Bible passages, being from God, carry a lot of spirtual weight as we can see the picture of the Hebrews entering the Promised Land as the Believers coming to Christ. The Hebrews were told to utterly destroy the Canaanites (idolators, sacrificers of infants, practicioners of bestiality, and an utterly disgusting lot) but they failed to do so. Believers are told to utterly destroy the sin in their lives, and we fail to do so. Both the Hebrews and the Believers need a Saviour and King.
I have yet to read what symbolism is represented by the Koran and Hadith's command to provide blood sacrifices to their god.
No, if we followed the 'injunctions of the Bible' we would know that we are sinners whose only hope of Salvation is through the Grace of God. We are to believe on the LORD (and that is LORD - our Sovereign King) Jesus and be 'washed'. Our job is to bring the Gospel. God will Judge (and I'm talking about spiritual/eternal Judgement, not the judgements and the discernments we all need to make in our lives) - not us.
Conversely those that follow the 'injunctions of the Koran/Hadith' probably are compelled to plow airplanes into buildings full of civilians.
Hooper continued, "And each of them thru contributions made at mosques scattered throughout America, contribute money to the Muslim outreach efforts led by Hezbollah, Hamas, Al Queda, and numerous other organizations designed to help infidels choose between death and conversion to Islam."
Complete, unadulterated bullshit.
Does that include:
Amir Taheri (Iranian journalist and dissident, who has denounced "shaheeds" as murderers in the Arab press, and led Iranians in a counter-protest at the recent London "peace" rally)? There are a number of other (lieing?) Muslims represented by Taheri's PR agent, Benador Associates, listed here along with (lieing?) non-Muslims like James Woolsey, Richard Perle, Michael Ledeen, Charles Krauthammer, Dennis Prager & Frank Gaffney, Jr.
Khalid Durán (who writes articles with Daniel Pipes, and did much of the leg work for Steve Emerson's American Jihad)?
Tashbih Sayyed (editor of Pakistan Today)?
Sorry, that's barely a beginning, but I tire quickly of responding to such stupid shiite. Your "logic" is no different from saying that Aleksandr Isaevich Solzhenitsyn musta been a liar because he was from the USSR.
