Transit says NO!
Offensive to Muslims!
Transit says YES!
Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus
and Muhammad as Muslim prophets — not offensive to Jews and Christians!

Miami-Dade Transit to remove `offensive'
Islamic bus ads BY JAWEED KALEEM
Miami-Dade Transit is pulling advertisements from 10 buses that
South Florida Muslims have said are offensive to Islam.
ads, which went up Tuesday, said “Fatwa on your head? Is your community
or family threatening you?'' and directed Muslims to a website
encouraging them to leave Islam.
Robert Spencer, associate
director of 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.''
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
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.

Notice how the journalist, Jaweed Kaleem, does
not have any comment from me (as Executive Director of SIOA, it was my
initiative) or anyone from my organization respond to this breach of
contract and violation of free speech.
Further, he prints,
unchallenged, the remarks by un-indicted co-conspirator, Hamas tied and
Muslim Brotherhood front, CAIR without so much as mentioning who and
what they are. The slander and accusations CAIR has fabricated and
published about me and my associate Robert Spencer is libelous.
'crime' was responding to the inquires from desperate Muslims seeking
sanctuary from the dangers of leaving Islam.
SIOA and FDI are human
rights organizations seeking religious freedom, individual rights
protections and free speech.
We have filed a lawsuit.

Jaweed, Why is CAIR named without it's criminal and terror tied history? And why doesn't the Miami Herald, the free press, express outrage at the violation the first amendment. Apostasy is punishable by death – the corpses are many. Ibn Warraq, Wafa Sultan, Nonie Darwish, former Muslims, could all speak to this
