SIOA nationwide ad campaign kicks off in Miami: “Leaving Islam” bus ads hit the streets

Posted By Robert Spencer On April 15, 2010 @ 7:32 pm In NewsReal Blog | No Comments

Tuesday our SIOA “Leaving Islam” ad campaign rolled out on the streets of Miami — it’s an assertion of religious liberty, the free conscience, in response to the misleading CAIR dawah bus ad campaign that has rolled out in several major cities.

One of the first projects that we’ve been working on for Stop the Islamization of America and the Freedom Defense Initiative organization that I started with Pamela Geller was this bus ad campaign. Pamela’s announcement on the campaign is here.

This is the first time anyone has offered public help to those who are threatened under Islam’s apostasy law. In the Land of the Free, government and law enforcement should be on this. But they aren’t. So we are. It is time for free citizens to stand for freedom — or lose it.

Why did we create and organize a bus ad campaign to offer resources to Muslims who want to leave Islam but feel threatened? We wanted to show that some people will stand up against violent intimidation, some people will stand up for religious freedom in America. And we wanted to counterbalance the smooth deceptions of the CAIR campaign. So Pamela Geller developed the above bus ad with the help of the enormously talented Big Fur Hat. We intend it to roll out nationwide, kicking off with South Florida.

Our pro-freedom campaign began today on the following buses all over Miami — Route 3 (Biscayne Blvd and US1), Route 88 (Kendall Drive SW 88th Street, from the Dade and North Metro Rail station to SW 80th street), Route 40 (Bird Road SW 40th Street), Route L (Hialeah along 79th Street Causeway, Collins Avenue to Miami Beach Convention Center), Route E (Collins Avenue), and Route 11 (FIU Bus terminal to FIU South campus, West Flagler street ends at Government center Metro station) — split between curb side and street side.

Any Jihad Watchers in Florida readers who see these ads, please take some pictures and send them to me at director[at]jihadwatch.org.

We need funds to roll it out nationwide. People need to be educated. Help us get there. Please donate via the Contribute to Jihad Watch button on the right sidebar, and specify that your donation is for the bus ad campaign. Until SIOA is set up as a 501C3, donations should go through Jihad Watch. And join the SIOA Facebook group.

The Islam campaign is pictured below. But today, not these but our ads are running in Miami.

America is the land of the free, and apostates must know they are free here and safe here.

Rifqa Bary can do it. So can you. Freedom of religion is an unalienable right. Sharia law holds no weight or legitimacy here. Apostates are free to leave Islam and to be who and whatever that want to be.

That was the objective of this bus campaign of SIOA and FDI. We set up a website, RefugefromIslam.org, for would-be apostates from Islam.

We want to help. We want to stand for freedom. Join us.
