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.”
