AFDI/SIOA Pro-Freedom Anti-Sharia Billboards and Radio in Kansas City

Atlas Shrugs:

The war in the information battle-space heats up.

In an effort to stop the protection of constitutional liberties, the Muslim Brotherhood-linked ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) has kicked off its national sharia disinformation campaign in Kansas City. They are running billboards and radio ads in an attempt to deceive and mislead the American people on the sharia. ICNA is a Muslim Brotherhood group, according to a captured internal document of the Brotherhood. Muslim Brotherhood groups in America are trying to norm Sharia, mainstream Sharia. The Muslim Brotherhood group ICNA needs to lie to Americans about Sharia and advance a false narrative about the most extreme and radical ideology on the face of the earth.

We are on the forefront of this fight. Our billboards are going up in Kansas City this week, and our radio ads will be breaking this week as well. We will be running billboards and radio ads in major citys where foreign law prohibition legislation is under consideration, to counteract the Muslim Brotherhood pro-sharia campaign. Muslim Brotherhood groups, you are on notice. To paraphrase Churchill, we shall go on to the end, we shall fight in Congress, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength on the airwaves, we shall defend our freedoms, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the billboards, we shall fight on the radio, we shall fight in our protests and in the streets, we shall fight on the hill; we shall never surrender.

This very simple and clear cut legislation should be the proverbial no-brainer. And yet the fact that it is being met by so much resistance, both overt and covert, indicates how very needed it is.

How can anyone oppose a law that seeks to prevent foreign laws from undermining fundamental constitutional liberties? We all accept that state and federal constitutional rights to a jury trial in CIVIL cases can be waived almost by default (thus two parties agreeing to be bound by German or French law where there is no jury trial right in a civil matter) and would not be affected by the bill, since the jury trial right is per the law waived by default.

Here is the copy of our 30 second radio ads:

Subversive groups will tell you that Sharia is just private religious law. They’re lying. Sharia is a political system that contravenes American freedoms in numerous ways. Sharia asserts authority over non-Muslims. It mandates discrimination, harassment, and second-class status for both non-Muslims and women. It denies free speech, which we’re seeing in America increasingly under the guise of “hate speech laws.” How can anyone support Sharia when its undermines our fundamental Constitutional liberties? Look for our billboards on I-70.

Counter billboard initiative takes on promotion of sharia law in KC

A patriotic organization is launching a billboard campaign intended to undermine the efforts to advertise and promote Shariah, the Islamic law that calls for beheadings, executions and amputations, across America.

The group, Stop Islamization of Nations, is buying ad space for a billboard calling on people to learn the dark side of Shariah law.

Jihad Watch publisher and Islam analyst Robert Spencer said the ICNA campaign is an effort to muddy the waters on Islam.

“ICNA is trying to whitewash Shariah, to hoodwink Americans into thinking that concerns about it are all due to ‘misconceptions’ that can easily be cleared up,” Spencer said.

Spencer adds that any inquiries about Shariah’s darker side will receive soft replies.

“I expect that if any inquirers asked about stonings, amputations, the denial of the freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and equality of rights for women and non-Muslims, they’ll be told that none of that is really part of Shariah,” Spencer said.

“ICNA’s goal is to foster complacency and ignorance about Shariah on the part of Americans,” Spencer said. “I don’t think people phoning in with questions like that will rattle ICNA. Only a counter-campaign calling attention to those aspects of Sharia would accomplish that.”

Spencer echoes the reason Geller gives for her group’s campaign.

“The U.S. should be undertaking its own campaign to raise awareness about how Shariah is incompatible with constitutional freedoms, and calling upon Muslims in America to reject those aspects of it,” Spencer said.

Political Islam President Bill Warner says that anyone who calls the ICNA number likely will be told Shariah is entirely religious.

“Muslims claim that Shariah is just religious law. But since Islam is both a political doctrine and a religious doctrine, the Shariah is much more that religious law. It contains the laws of the Kafir, the dhimmi and jihad,” Warner said.

He says that there is no comparison between Catholic church law or Jewish law and Shariah.

“Jewish and Catholic canon law are purely religious and do not try to rule the non-Jew and the non-Catholic,” Warner said.

Warner adds that Muslims have a major problem with inconsistency.

“Of course, they also say that killing apostates and beating women is purely religious,” Warner said.

Kansas City Target of Sharia Campaign

From Emily’s blog at Stop Radical Islam:

As part of their “National Sharia Campaign,” the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) will bombard the Kansas City public with billboards and radio ads. In the words of ICNA member Sabeel Ahmed, who is behind the campaign,

We should use every opportunity presented or created to sensitize non-Muslim peers and school staff with Islam and establish an environment in which every where a non-Muslims turn, they notice Islam by it and eventually accept Islam with Allah’s guidance, insha Allah … Indeed Islam came to tear down the pillars portrayed in a positive way and get influenced of kufr (infidels) and replace them with the pillars of Islam.

ICNA’s press release tells us, “During this campaign, which runs from Jan. 23, 2012, until Feb. 19, 2012, ICNA Kansas City will air messages on Shariah through KMBZ 980 AM (Radio) and post a billboard on Shariah at I-70 and 38th street. The campaign messages are expected to reach over 200,000 people per week. The messages will invite the public to call 1-855-SHARIAH hotline or visit our website at http://defendingreligiousfreedom.com to learn and ask questions about Shariah and Islam. The visitors to the website and the callers to the hotline can request a free copy of the English translation of the Quran and other free literature on Islam and Shariah.

For those wondering just who is “Defending Religious Freedom,” the ICNA was included on a Muslim Brotherhood document entitled “A list of our organizations and the organizations of our friends,” which was submitted (unopposed) into evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial. This document identified ICNA as an entity or affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood. Further, ICNA was named by the Department of Justice (DoJ), which prosecuted the case, an unindicted co-conspirator.

Always nice to know who’s educating us about “Religious Freedom.”
