again, our organization and websites have done groundbreaking work with
unprecedented results. There is no group that can match our strategies,
initiatives, media and legal warfare and our success No one. Our work
in 2012 was monumental. And that was fresh off our 2011 victories, most notably, defeating the Ground Zero mosque.
We never retreat. We refuse to accept a dark future. We fight. We will
continue on the offense, but we can't do it without funds. And it is

anti-jihad subway and bus campaign forced the media to talk about what
they themselves prohibit — jihad and sharia. It was one of the biggest
stories this year. This was part of a multi-pronged media attack forcing
discussion and analysis of the gravest threat to our national security.
We posted anti-sharia billboards and ran radio ads to counter Muslim Brotherhood billboard ads and radio ads promoting sharia.
We expanded the "Support Israel" bus campaign to 100 NYC buses to
include "Support the Troops, Defeat Jihad"; "Support the Copts, Defeat
Jihad"; "Support the Bahais, Defeat Jihad"; "Support the Nigerian
Christians, Defeat Jihad"; "Support the Hindus, Defeat Jihad"; et al.
And we have new ads going up in NY and DC to counter Hamas-CAIR's deceptive quran ads. Here is our new ad: NBC News on the new AFDI Quran ads
here); our Former Muslims for Freedom conference in Manhattan Beach; and our First International Freedom Congress at the UN on 911 sent shockwaves across the world.
We exposed pro-sharia media bias
when we submitted an exact replica of an anti-Catholic ad that ran in
the NY Times, exchanging the falsehoods about Catholicism with truth
about Islam. The New York Times refused our ad but ran the anti-Catholic
ad. It made television and mainstream media news round the world: VIDEO: Pamela Geller on FOX News Discussing NY Times Hypocrisy
