Not In the Name of Islam Anti-Terror TV Ads to Air

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 10/23/06) - Beginning Wednesday, October 25, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) will air its “Not in the Name of Islam” anti-terror television advertisement on cable networks in Minnesota, including during a Monday night Vikings football game.

CAIR’s 30-second spot features American Muslims stating: “We often hear claims Muslims don’t condemn terrorism and that Islam condones violence. As Muslims, we want to state clearly that those who commit acts of terror in the name of Islam are betraying the teachings of the Quran and the Prophet Muhammad. We reject anyone ­ of any faith - who commits such brutal acts and will not allow our faith to be hijacked by criminals. Islam is not about hatred and violence. It’s about peace and justice.”

The ad campaign grew out of CAIR’s “Not in the Name of Islam” online petition, signed by hundreds of thousands of Muslims worldwide, designed to disassociate the faith of Islam from the violent acts of a few Muslims.

The Washington-based Islamic civil rights and advocacy group says it is airing the spots in Minnesota to counter anti-Muslim stereotyping in that state’s Fifth Congressional District race. (CAIR is a non-partisan group that does not endorse political candidates.)

Oh boy, they are stumping for Ellison aren't they. That campaign is so horrid, especially coming from them. As if it's not bad enough that they've sent Bedier fishing on YouTube and on Blogger.

If it's not in the spirit of the Quran and the Prophet Muhammad ...?

Must be in the name of Mickey Mouse or some other bad hombre!
