Ads Pulled

Miami-Dade Transit bows to Sharia, pulls religious liberty bus ads as “offensive to Islam”

Can’t offend Islam. CAN’T.  Land of the free means freedom for Muslims, not for kafirs.

Pamela: Muslims can run bus ads all across America inviting the clueless to convert to Islam, but we cannot make information available to Muslims who want to leave Islam.

Submission. The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations can run bus ads all over the country calling Abraham, Moses and Jesus Muslim prophets, an assertion offensive to any Jew or Christian, but a human rights group cannot run bus ads defending religious liberty. Some groups that are “offended” get contempt and mockery if they express their feelings of offense. Others get immediate results, perhaps due to the thuggish nature of their coreligionists.

Dhimmitude on the bus, an update on this story: “Miami-Dade Transit says it will remove `offensive’ bus ads,” by Jaweed Kaleem for the Miami Herald, April 16, via JW:

Miami-Dade Transit is pulling advertisements from 10 buses that South Florida Muslims have said are offensive to Islam.The ads, which went up Tuesday, said “Fatwa on your head? Is your community or family threatening you?” and directed Muslims to a website to encouraging them to leave Islam.

Robert Spencer, who heads New York-based Stop the Islamization of America, which purchased the ads for one-month as the first leg of a national campaign, said they were “offered in defense of religious liberty.”

Jaweed Kaleem, who contacted me for this story a couple of days ago, makes some false assumptions here. I do not head SIOA. Pamela Geller does. She is the Executive Director. I am the Associate Director. And these bus ads in defense of human rights and religious freedom were entirely her brainchild. She deserves full credit for a noble initiative in a cowardly age.

But on Thursday, Miami-Dade Transit spokeswoman Karla Damian said that after reviewing the ads, the department decided they “may be offensive to Islam” and would remove them before the buses ran on Friday.

Since when is being “offensive to Islam” grounds for removal of any public statement? Are we living in a Sharia state already?

Damian said the ads were able to initially go up because Miami-Dade Transit has an outside company sell ad space and does not routinely review ads before they run.The South Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations had critiqued the ads as promoting “bigotry” and making false statements about Islam.

“Islam guarantees freedom to and freedom from religion. . . . [We] reject as un-Islamic any extremist interpretation that sanctions the killing of any individual because she decided to `leave Islam,” said director Muhammed Malik.

Muhammad Malik, as might be expected from the representative of an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas funding case that has had several of its officials convicted of terror activities, is lying. Apostates from Islam are threatened with death or murdered all over the world. We have carried stories here of apostates being threatened or killed in Pakistan, Egypt, Somalia, Iran, and elsewhere. There is nothing false or offensive about telling the truth about this. But telling the truth is becoming increasingly difficult, and rare.

Pamela Geller’s comments on this act of cowardice are here.

  1. Free speech thrown under the bus to use the USA expression. It is blasphemy to equate Jesus Christ the Son of God with allah’s false prophet.

  2. A message for who called themselves “freedom Defense” url: (
    Thank you for publicizing the religion of Islam. Islam is a religion of peace and if few Muslims practicing evil actions that do not mean that they are practicing Islam. Indeed they are ignorant about their religion!
    God in the Qur’an said that: “He will promote His religion even if people like you hate it!
    You waste a lot of money and that what upset me! Muslims are not going around by the sword to convert people! Islam is most growing religion in the U.S. and I assure you that converts to Islam all by choice! If you like a better idea, go and buy a Muslim name list and direct your concerns to them! Instead you are spending money to ask non-Muslims to leave Islam by placing your ad on public buses! It was not wise at all!
    I really recommend coming and working with me to teach Muslims especially the new convert about Islam and you will have a better investment to bring Muslims who are educated in their religion to be a good citizens and to be more productive for a healthier society and for a stronger nation (the US)!

  3. * I assure you that converts to Islam all by choice!

    Tell it to allah and its false prophet, & get back with its response.

    Meanwhile, allah’s injunction on its followers to “strike off their heads, maim them in every limb!” remains in force, according to its blasphemous koran.

    Flee from islam – judgement is coming!

  4. Zakkout,
    People do not convert to islam by free choice – they are forced into it – and the mechanism is exactly like the mechanism that traps a young girl into prostitution. It is clear from your email that you are a muslim thug and that you are trying to suppress to freedom of non-muslims to comment on you and your pig religion. And just for the record. a point that an idiot like you can never understand, religion is a human concept and you and your fellow islamic scum have NO right to force the philosophy of an uneducated arab rapist, murderer and woman hater called mohammed (piss be unto its name) onto the rest of the world. We waste more money on providing additional services for muslim scum that were never required by any other religion: this money – unlike the money used for the bus advertisements – is wasted
    . But we wont hear you complain about the real wastage, will we?? Muslims can never be a good investment for the future of any country and you are not welcome!! You represent the worst that is in mankind!!!
