Muslim 'peace' adverts launched

An advertising campaign promoting British Muslims as integrated citizens who reject extremism has been launched.

Islam is Peace - formed after the bombings in London in July 2005 - has initially placed adverts on the capital's buses and Underground trains.

They show a range of Muslims - including a policewoman, a Scout group and the chef Michael Barry - with the slogan "Proud to be a British Muslim".

Organisers say research shows many Britons associate Islam with terrorism.

Fitzgerald: The "Islam Is Peace" campaign

... this campaign, costing no doubt many tens of millions of dollars, is an important weapon of the attempt to fool English people and prolong their unwariness and confusion and even diffidence about discussing their entirely justified fears of and suspicions about Islam ...

... a faith that is a religion, a politics, an economics, a system of artistic censorship, a guide to personal hygiene, a manual of etiquette, a guide to Dealing With Non-Muslims, a clothing manual, a guide to what are the permissible limits of thought and especially of thought about Islam and Muhammad, and so on. It's a Total System. It is unrecognized as such by most Infidels because what they know of as religion, what they think of as religion, is not a Total System ...

Yes, they are conducting Jihad. They are attempting to befog the minds of non-Muslims, to confuse them, to prevent them from beginning to look at Islam steadily and whole. They are attempting to prevent them from learning the truth about its tenets and attitudes, its history, and the present behavior, everywhere that Muslims exist in numbers sufficient to attempt to impose their will, whether in the Lands of the Infidel, the Dar al-Harb or “House of War,” or in the already Muslim-dominated Dar al-Islam, which is now the House of Peace. It is the House of Peace because, you see, there is no need for war once Islam triumphs -– which of course isn’t quite true, because then there are those remaining pesky non-Muslims to discriminate against, to harry, to humiliate, to degrade, to render physically insecure, to do everything possible either to drive them out, or to keep them from multiplying or serving as an attractive and therefore dangerous example to the Muslims around them.

We are in a war. The war is not to be determined by what happens in Iraq ... If this campaign in Great Britain, probably financed by those deep Saudi and other oil-rich Arab pockets, succeeds, and if all such campaigns succeed in delaying the day of recognition, the fateful, civilization-wide and not merely individual, anagnorisis, it will be a very bad thing.

There are at this point not many people fully capable of seeing the whole thing, grasping the whole thing. Spread to as many as possible what they have to say. Support them in any way you can. And learn as much as you can yourself, so you cannot be fooled, cannot be bested. Become dangerously well-informed and, therefore, implacable in your view.

"Islam is peace" media campaign in UK

"This is one of the very buses blown up by a devout Muslim 2 years ago. Maybe they should be spending their money convincing devout Muslims it's a Religion of Peace™ rather than me."

I am astonished by President Bush ...

"The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam. That's not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace. These terrorists don't represent peace. They represent evil and war." -- G.W. Bush

"I have assured His Majesty that our war is against evil, not against Islam. There are thousands of Muslims who proudly call themselves Americans, and they know what I know -- that the Muslim faith is based upon peace and love and compassion. The exact opposite of the teachings of the al Qaeda organization, which is based upon evil and hate and destruction." -- G.W. Bush

"... such seasonal staples as my all-time favorite "war on terror" quotation from Abu Qatada, the Al Qaeda-linked cleric. I just love to trot it out around Ramadan after President Bush has said something utterly ignorant about Islam meaning peace, or, addressing the Muslim pooh bahs he always has at the White House for a fast-breaking Iftar dinner, how the jihadists have "twisted" Islam.

"I am astonished by President Bush when he claims there is nothing in the Koran that justifies jihad violence in the name of Islam," Abu Qatada said about six years ago. "Is he some kind of Islamic scholar? Has he ever actually read the Koran?"" -- Diana West

Can Australia accept on face value that "Islam is peace"?

Or do we need to become dangerously well-informed?

  1. "I wonder if there's a law against misleading advertising - if so, this advert must surely contravene it!"

  2. And what explains former British PM Blair’s(3) statement that “Islam is a peaceful and tolerant religion and the acts of these people are wholly contrary to the teachings of the Koran”, which 1300 years of history completely contradicts. Or President Bush’s statement to the effect that “(Islam’s) teachings are good and peaceful and those who commit evil in the name of Allah, blaspheme the name of Allah,” when those very teachings authorize evil in the name of Allah. Or, former president Clinton’s denial of any sinister threat to the West from Islam, when he said that “no religion condones the murder of …. men women and children,” Yet everyday, Christians in many Muslim countries live in fear of being murdered.

  3. September 11 was an “anti-Islamic” attack

    Britain’s Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith, unveiled the new brand name in a speech a few days ago. “There is nothing Islamic about the wish to terrorize, nothing Islamic about plotting murder, pain and grief,” she told her audience. “Indeed, if anything, these actions are anti-Islamic.”

  4. Turkey's PM Erdogan: The term "moderate Islam" is ugly and offensive -- Islam is Islam

    And so in two sentences Erdogan dismisses the concept on which the Western world has placed its hopes of survival and peace.

    Islam is Islam. Will this be discussed in the Western media? Will American and European analysts publicly take up the question of whether or not Erdogan is right, and what the implications might be if he is? Or will they ignore this and continue to assume in all their analyses that the opposite is true, and to dismiss as "ideologues" or "Islamophobes" those who point out that influential Muslims like Erdogan are saying things like this?
