And the spin begins. It's not a 911 ad, but this picture is easily the most identifiable instance of jihad in the American mind.
"New 9/11 Ads Headed to Metro" Washington City Paper, Will Sommer on Oct. 16, 2012 (hat tip anti-cair)
The cycle spawned by the Muslim savage ads on the Metro is about to get even more incendiary. The American Freedom Defense Initiative, the group behind the original ads, wants to launch a whole new ad campaign, this time with evocative images of the Twin Towers.
The new ad, which uses a menacing quote from the Quran, is inspired by the Council on American-Islamic Relations' counter-campaign against AFDI's original ads. The CAIR ad, which features a girl in a hijab, uses a decidedly less ominous Quran quote: "Show forgiveness, speak for justice and avoid the ignorant."
"Citing the quran, are we?" responded AFDI co-founder Pamela Geller on her blog yesterday. "I think that's a grand idea."
Geller asked her readers for Quran verse suggestions, and the above verse was chosen to be the first in a series to be submitted to Metro. AFDI could publish all the jihad- and sharia-themed verses in the book eventually, according to its co-founder.
"Yes, this will go on for years," Geller writes.
