Why doesn't Khan stop calling me names, and start calling out the jihadists?
The Jewish star in her office (on the bottom of the picture at right) was rich.
And while she calls me ignorant, she didn't refute, either here or on the Behar show, my charge that her husband, Feisal Abdul Rauf, said that our children and grandchildren would all be Muslim.
And that was OK with everyone.
NEW YORK (WPIX) –
There is a controversial message on about 30 New York
City buses that imply Muslims are forced into their religion and face
serious retribution if they try to leave their faith.
"It is always hurtful when your entire community is judged by an action
of a few," Daisy Khan, executive director for the American society for
Muslim Advancement, told PIX 11 News.
Kahn said it's ridiculous to think there is any threat of harm or death
in this city, or this country for anyone who wants to convert from Islam
to another religion.
Conservative Activist and pundit Pamela Geller is responsible for the
ads. She spent $8,000 she raised on her blog to pay for them and
defends her actions.
"Just as there are ads to invite people to Islam there are people that
are leaving islam whose lives are in jeopardy and we wanted to provide
this service," said Geller.
The ad even has a website for that service.
The MTA has no plans to pull the banners and told PIX 11 News quote.
"The ads were reviewed by the MTA, and we determined they did not
violate the MTA's advertising guidelines."
Khan says she believes in free speech, but thinks the ads are divisive
and along with their creator are tasteless.
"I think Pamela Geller is ignorant of who our community is, and she
should take the time to understand that there are 1.5 billion muslims
majority that has nothing to do with extremism," said Kahn.
Geller says she is not ignorant, that this is her life work, something
she became dedicated to after September 11th.
"Who would be hurt by it?" Geller said. "if its not applicable to you
its not applicable to you."
