Our new ad campaign is designed to show the absurdity of the mainstream media focus on “Islamophobia” amid growing jihad violence worldwide.

The charge of “Islamophobia” is used to intimidate people into thinking there is something wrong with opposing jihad violence.

Our ads are designed to increased awareness of the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat, and put an end to the denial and willful ignorance about that threat, so that we can adopt effective counter-terror measures based on that realistic appraisal.

The Muslim groups that complain most loudly about “Islamophobia,” like Hamas-tied CAIR, have opposed every counter-terror program that has ever been proposed or implemented.

The ad lists some of the recent victims of jihad. Those people and preventing others from joining them should be our focus, not the fictional “backlash against Muslims” upon which the media always focuses.

We hope to raise awareness about the need for Muslims in the US not just to denounce ISIS, but to teach young Muslims why this understanding of Islam is wrong and must be rejected.

If the Islamic State is not Islamic, what is it? How did this misunderstanding of Islam become so widespread? Why are so many more US and UK Muslims than ever joined al Qaeda joining the Islamic State?

And while Muslims in the US condemn the Islamic State, where are they teaching against the ideology that gave rise to it?

Right now, nothing is being done to stop jihad recruiting in US mosques, even as several hundred young Muslims from the US have gone to wage jihad for the Islamic State.

If the moderates really reject extremism, let them show it by instituting genuine programs to teach against the jihadic doctrine.

    Como on. Quran 47:4 states “When you meet the disbelievers IN BATTLE (Key words!), strike their necks. Comparing all of Islam to these terrorists is comparing the Vatican to KKK. This is ridiculous.

    “Then I heard the LORD say to the other men, “Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked. Show no mercy; have no pity! Kill them all – old and young, girls and women and little children.
    But do not touch anyone with the mark. Begin your task right here at
    the Temple.” So they began by killing the seventy leaders. “Defile the
    Temple!” the LORD commanded. “Fill its courtyards with the bodies of
    those you kill! Go!” So they went throughout the city and did as they
    were told.” (Ezekiel 9:5-7 NLT)

    Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you
    that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens
    astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you
    must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove
    that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and COMPLETELY DESTROY ALL its inhabitants, as well as all the LIVESTOCK Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a BURNT OFFEREING to the LORD your God.
    That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep
    none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the
    LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will
    have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly
    promised your ancestors. “The LORD your God will be merciful only if
    you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what
    is pleasing to him.” (DEUTERONOMY 13:13-19 NLT)

    the verse of Quran was actually revealed years after sever persecution of the Muslims.They were bycotted,killed brutally,tortured for many years and so the verse was revealed.note the following verse:

    And fight them until there is no fitnah (transgression) and [until] the religion, all of it, is for Allah AND IF THEY CEASE – then indeed, Allah is Seeing of what they do.(8:39)

    And IF THEY CEASE, then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.(2:192)

    To get over the warped stuff the emendia transmit, this is a good tactic. Bold prints with a cogent message. Will not covert a devoted Muslim but will make some of the fence sitters think. Which is a good start.

  • Abdul Rehman

    Read Quran… This is a order during in the battle/war… “when you meet the unbleiver during battle/war strike their neck but if they ask for peace then give them peace” this is the complete Ayat. if you dont know about Islam. then dont spread such nonsense.

  • azam

    So, when you meet (in fight Jihad in Allah’s Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives). Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity (i.e. free them without ransom), or ransom (according to what benefits Islam), until the war lays down its burden. Thus [you are ordered by Allah to continue in carrying out Jihad against the disbelievers till they embrace Islam (i.e. are saved from the punishment in the Hell-fire) or at least come under your protection], but if it had been Allah’s Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost , 47:4
    This verse came down when a battle was going out against the Muslims and the disbelievers at that time
    And what do you expect in a battle
    It was for that reason…… and in the banner it was give 47:4 and where is the whole verse
    WHY MISQOUTE.
    YOU TRY TO DO ANYTHING YOU CAN NEVER POINT OUT A VERSE FROM THE QURAN WHICH IS AGAINST HUMANITY
    OPEN CHALLENGE FROM ALL THE SCHOLRS TO YOU
    ALL THE GR8 SCHOLAR SAY IS is not Islamic
    So don’t defame Islam by all these tricks
    All of them condemn IS
    NOT ONLY NON MUSLIMS Muslims scholars who have gone against them have got death threats…. what do you think about that….
    LAME PEOPLE ILLOGICAL WORK….
    I LOVE ALL PEOPLE
    whether he is from America or Europe or any country
    All of you are the creation of GOD..and I love you
    But those people who are trying to defame us by putting false blame…. I ignore them usually.
    But this website just shook my breath so I had to answer

    LOVE YOU ALLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!

    Why do you PEOPLE DONT INVESTIGATE REAL ISLAM BY READING
    I CHALLENGE YOU TO DO THAT….

    This section of the Qu’ran states that if one does not let you practice
    Islam and tell you about Islam, you may fight. But you’re reading this
    way out of context. You must read the whole chapter to understand what
    is going on here.

    Thank you for spreading bad word of Islam. This religion of peace has now
    been demoted to a religion of violence in your ignorant view. This is
    not your fault. Fox News has been feeding you only one side of the
    story. These “jihadists” are not Muslims. They break every rule of Islam
    by forming these organizations, taking hostages, and killing thousands
    of people. Please try to understand that.
