    Re: Shocking Anti-Islam Ad Campaign Coming To New York City Buses And Subways

    So do they really know who the executioner is now? I am wondering how she knows he was a moderate before and uses that photo?

According to the NY Daily News, the ads, paid for by flame-throwing blogger Pamela Geller, at a cost of $100,000, are intended as an “education campaign” to warn of the “problem with jihad” and Islamic sharia law, Geller said.'

    I agree this will never fly, unfortunately.
    It's bigotry all the same. And most Muslims are Middle Eastern, so it's another aspect of racial bigotry on top of religious bigotry.

    And I am tired of explaining the racism people of Arab, Persian, Turkish, and Pashtun backgrounds face because they are foreign and/or Muslim. 'Brown people" experience racism in American because of differences in culture, immigration status, and religion. I have many Muslim friends of all those ethnicities, and I have seen people at restaurants, hospitals, airports, and call centers treat them like **** for some reason be it they are foreign, they are brown, they are probably Muslims, etc.

    It has nothing to do with race.

    Libbos are the last folks to criticize religious bigotry.

    Oh, you have an, "Arab friend", eh?

    Maybe you should tell your friends to stand up for what's right?
