Billboards stress commonality of religions
No shiite. So all religions are the same and all we have to do isÂ celebrate the diversity of what exactly?
Billboards Genocide links Islam to Christianity and Judaism/Orlando Sentinel
Very well, so here’s my question, Muslims:
If we have so much in common, and if we are ‘the same family and the same message’, please tell me why Muslims kill Â a Christian every 5 minutes, (last year 100.000) and why do the highest ranking Muselmanic clerics call for genocide of all Jews?
And Â what for do we need Islam if we’re all “one family, one message?”
Take a real close look: does this look familiar? Is there anything we have in common?
Local Muslim organizations have started a media campaign stressing the commonality of Christians, Muslims and Jews. The billboards proclaiming “Same family, Same message” sprouting throughout the Orlando and Daytona Beach areas are sponsored by the Longwood-based American Muslim Community Centers, the Islamic Center of Orlando and the United Muslim Foundation inÂ Lake Mary.
“In the holiday season, people are more spiritual,” said AMCC Chairman Atif Fareed. “The idea is this would be an ideal time to spread the message that we are really from the same source: one family, one message.”
The billboards, which have several different slogans, refer motorists to the whyislam.org website of the New York-based Islamic Circle of North America. The organization’s “Why Islam” campaign is intended to raise awareness and correct misconceptions about a religion many Americans associate with terrorism.
“Our goal is to reach out and start a dialogue with our fellow Americans,” said ICNA President Zahid Bukhari.
The Orlando billboards began going up a few days before an apparently demented woman pushed a Hindu man to his death in front of a New York subway on Dec. 27. The woman said she did it because she hated Muslims and Hindus for the terrorist attacks of 9-11.
Strange that the Orlando Sentinel doesn’t find it worthwhile to mention that just a few days before that a Muslim from Africa murdered a Korean American by throwing him on the tracks, while another Muslim from Pakistan took pictures instead of Â trying to save his life. Why is the Orlando Sentinel so selective with their reporting?
Fareed, a commercial airline pilot, said the idea came when he saw the Why Islam billboards in Pensacola, and thought it would be a good way to introduce his organization to Central Florida residents. Relatively new to Orlando, AMCC opened its Longwood community center in June.
“If they can do it in Pensacola, Florida,” Fareed said, “we can do it in Orlando, Florida.”
