New anti-Muslim ads ‘quoting Quran’ go up in New York City subway stations

New York: Another set of inflammatory ads have gone up in 39 New York City subway stations, paid for by the same group that posted ads equating Muslims or Palestinians with savages last year.

According to US media reports, the American Freedom Defense Initiative purchased space next to 228 clocks in 39 stations for the ads, which have an image of the twin towers burning and a quote attributed to the Quran saying: “Soon shall we cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers.”

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said that the ads went up Monday and will run for a month.

The same group paid for ads to be displayed in 10 stations in September. Those ads implied enemies of Israel are “savages.”

The MTA also sold space last year to competing advertisements that urged tolerance.

    One New Yorker has launched a response campaign to these ads called Talk Back To Hate, where they are trying to raise $7,500 to  buy response ads. They’re over halfway there. If you’re offended by the ads above, as I am, please consider donating or spreading the word: http://www.indiegogo.com/TalkBacktoHate

    THIS IS AN OUTRAGE ! NO RELIGION OF ANY WORTH SUPPORTS KILLING OF OTHERS AND THIS AD AGENCY NEEDS TO BE SHUT DOWN AND ITS OWNERS JAILED. TERRORISM IS A TOOL TO PUT FEAR IN OTHERS, STAND STRONG AMERICA ! FEAR NO MAN OR GOVT.

    As a Muslim, i think that this is outrageous. Terrorism is something we need to defeat, there is no doubt in that but Islam does not teach anything but peace and tolerance. Jihad is only permitted for self defence, not for the use of barbarically killing others. You will never find verses from the Quran that support killing innocent people. Islam is a peaceful religion and these terrorists have ruined the true teachings of Islam.

      Far too late for this debate, if anyone needs to support such a disgraceful religion they’re on the wrong side, simple as that. You’re either with or against, you have chosen with so good luck.

        We as muslim believe that such activities are done by anti-muslim communities. As you can see, who has put up the ads over there, we have never been barbaric in past nor in present. The terrorists who have been arrested in Pakistan are not muslim, they are found non-muslim. It is a propaganda to create negative image about Islam and Muslim.

        Adding into it, i would say, Islam does not promote violence similarly no other religion does it as well. Therefore, Attacks by USA on Muslim countries cannot be quoted as Christianity as disgraceful religion, It is a graceful religion followed by many as Islam is followed.

          Are you saying OSAMA BIN LADDEN and the others are not muslims? They happen to be great philosophers of ISLAM I hear, it’s either Quran has all this or it’s a very wrong interpretation of it.

             Yes, I really mean it. Any Muslim will not stand against the Islamic principles. If Osama bin Laden was Muslim, why not he was presented in front of Media after killing.. This mystery was drowned in sea.. it should be the point of discussion. Plus, I would like to agree that anti-islam and anti-muslim forces have put forward wrong interpretation of verses in Qur’an. There is no such verses in Qur’an as mentioned in these Ads. You can go to any library, get the Qur’an and you can easily verify yourself. No such verses exist in Qur’an which promotes nuking or against humanity activities.

             I would like add what Quran says about the killing of an innocent person:

            “We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption/mischief [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. (Quran: 5-32 ) ”

            How beautiful is the religion who strongly condemns the killing of an innocent human.

            So your religion is so peaceful that your founder was a child molesting murderer? That’s funny

            http://quran.com/4/89They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah . But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.

            Hello, 

            Here is a reference for you.

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gwcuG2jb9k&bpctr=1358932321

            This video is from a person who used to be a muslim. The description says “The Innocent Prophet is the film that will help Muslims know the true face of Muhammad, as the creator of the false religion of Islam to achieve his own goals. It’s time to clear all doubts and accept that Muhammad was not a prophet but was a mobster, murderer, abuser of children and a self-proclaimed prophet.”

      How is it peaceful, if it’s got something to do with beheading your opponent in a combat.That’s barbaric!
