AFDI’s “Islamophobia?” Ad Campaign

I rolled out a new campaign in November 2014 that was designed to show the absurdity of the mainstream media focus on “Islamophobia” amid growing jihad violence worldwide.

The charge of “Islamophobia” was and is used to intimidate people into thinking there was something wrong with opposing jihad violence.

Our ads were designed to increased awareness of the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat, and put an end to the denial and willful ignorance about that threat, so that we can adopt effective counter-terror measures based on that realistic appraisal.

The Muslim groups that complain most loudly about “Islamophobia,” like Hamas-tied CAIR, have opposed every counter-terror program that has ever been proposed or implemented.

The ad listed some of the recent victims of jihad. “Islamophobia? ‘When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks’ (Quran 47:4). Is it ISLAMOPHOBIC to oppose these beheadings? RIP Colleen Hufford, Lee Rigby, Palmira Silva, James Foley, Alan Henning, David Haines, Daniel Pearl, Nick Berg, Steve Sotloff, Herve Gourdel, and the millions slaughtered in the cause of Jihad.”

That was all. The message was that it is not Islamophobia to oppose jihad terror. Those victims, and preventing others from joining them, should have been our focus, not the fictional “backlash against Muslims” upon which the media always focused.

We hoped to raise awareness about the need for Muslims in the US not just to denounce ISIS, but to teach young Muslims why this understanding of Islam was wrong and had to be rejected.

Predictably, the media mounted a campaign against the ads, quoting Hamas-tied CAIR and never giving the ads a fair and evenhanded presentation. Meanwhile, hundreds of ordinary people wrote to me thanking me for putting these ads up and getting the truth out that the media was determined to obscure and obfuscate.
