JUST IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS
MERRY MUSLIM GREETINGS TO OBAMA’S AMERICA
by Dr. Paul L. Williams, The Last Crusade
Further proof to support President Barack Obama’s assertion that America is no longer a Judeo-Christian nation will be unveiled on New York’s Eve.
When the ball drops at midnight on Times Square, a massive message will appear on the 26-foot by 20-foot JumbroTron not to issue New Year greetings but to maintain that Islam is a religion of peace and goodwill, despite a rash of recent attacks by radical Muslims on American soil.
The ad, which is already flashing before millions of visitors to New York City, begins with the statement “Building Community, Serving Country” and features snapshots of American Muslims from all walks of life, including a police sergeant, a Little League all-star, a human rights activist, a doctoral candidate and an attorney, who all proclaim: “I am Muslim, I am American.”
This festive holiday announcement comes to the Big Apple, compliments of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), in an effort to present to millions of Americans a “fair” and “accurate” portrayal of Islam.
“We have more than 400 million people going through Times Square and we thought this would be a good opportunity to send out a positive message about Muslims,” Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR’s national communications director, told Al Arabiya.
Although the advertisement has been up since December 22, Mr. Hopper says it is being well received and that many Americans already have made donations to his organization online.
