“Don’t attack us please,” UK ads to say on Pakistani TV
To further curry favor, the ads will also insist “that British society is not anti-Islam, [and] to demonstrate the extent to which Muslims are integrated into British society.” As if jihadis don’t already know and depend on that when they infiltrate the UK in preparation of terrorist attacks. “Don’t attack us please, UK ads to say on Pak TV,” fromÂ Express India, February 10: H/T JW
From the Bolt Blog:
London -Â The British government will air ads on Pakistani television urging terrorists to not attack Britain.
What an astonishing – and whimpering – campaign Britain is now launching:
Prominent British Muslims are being recruited to star in a government-backedÂ advertisingÂ campaign aimed at preventing people inÂ PakistanÂ from engaging in extremist activity, the Guardian has learned.
Please don’t hate us: UK ad campaign to target extremism what???
I certainly hope that telling jihadists that Britain isn’t anti-Muslim will work. But two things worry me.
First, Britain hasn’t even managed to convinceÂ a frightening number of its own MuslimsÂ that it’s too nice to bomb. Second, when you crawl like that to men of such violence, you are likely to get not sympathy for your pleas, but contempt for your weakness.

Prominent British Muslims will star in the British Foreign Office-funded Â£400,000 (approximately Rs 2.9 crore)-campaign that is set to break on Pakistani television next Monday, ‘The Guardian’ reported on Tuesday.
The three-month public relations offensive, called ‘I Am the West’, will also include high-profile events in regions such as Peshawar and Mirpur, ‘The Guardian’ said. Seven in ten British Pakistanis are Mirpuris.
According to ‘The Guardian’, the first three ads in the project will feature British Communities Minister Sadiq Khan, UK manager of Islamic Relief Jehangir Malik, former England Under-19 captain and promising Worcestershire allrounder Moeen Ali, and the Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Chaudry Abdul Rashid, a Mirpuri.
The campaign, the paper said, will be targeted atÂ ‘15-25-year-old males who are less than well-educated and worldly wise, but potentially susceptible to extremist doctrines’. Nine 30-second commercials, supported by ads on radio, will be aired on PTV, Geo TV and Khyber among other channels.If the Pakistani campaign is successful, it will be extended in Egypt, Yemen and Indonesia.
And how will it be determined whether it was successful or not — whether the next jihadi attack on the UK is orchestrated by Pakistanis or not?
The central theme of the campaign, ‘The Guardian’ said, “is to assert that there is no contradiction in being a Muslim and being British.” It has four key aims, the daily reported: ‘to ensure Pakistanis realise the west is not anti-Islamic, that British society is not anti-Islam, to demonstrate the extent to which Muslims are integrated into British society and to stimulate and facilitate constructive debate on the compatibility of liberal and Muslim values’.
