It's time of year again. Reflect, re-evaluate and respond. And what is most important above all things? Our Freedom! With the re-election of Obama, the continued power and malevolent influence of Islamic supremacists in government and media, jihadi revolutions in Egypt, Libya, Gaza, Tunisia, et al, Hamas's growing international stature, the Palestinians' new status at the U.N., the continued progress of Iran's nuclear program, the reemergence of Al-Qaeda, we need to be even more aggressive. More engaged.

We are continuing on offense. Help us. Seriously, where is your money more effectively spent? Scroll this email. Look hard. Most organizations are all talk, we are all action.

We can't do it without your support.

Once 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 going to get worse, much worse, under Obama 2.

Just look at what we accomplished in 2012 with your help. If you love the work, support it.

Just this week we announced our latest offensive kicking off in Chicago and following Hamas-CAIR across the country.


Cair jihad ad copy
AFDI has created a brand new ad campaign to fight the disinformation and propaganda campaigns of Islamic supremacists and Muslim Brotherhood groups in America. Our new ads will counter the new deceptive #myjihad campaign by unindicted co-conspirator Hamas-CAIR and are a truth antidote to CAIR's deceptions.

It is reprehensible to put a happy face on mass murder, ethnic cleansing, honor violence, religious persecution, etc. Look how powerful Hamas-CAIR says I am:

CAIR-Chicago executive director Ahmed Rehab, who's behind the campaign, told the Sun-Times the term "jihad" has been twisted by groups such as Geller's so that its true meaning is obscured and the word is most closely associated with "holy war." …

Really? Tell that to Osama bin Laden, Nidal Hassan, Anwar Awlaki, Meshaal, Sheikh Qaradawi, et al, and millions of jihadists all over the world.

Our new campaign focuses on how jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism. It uses actual quotes by jihadis and Islamic supremacists including Osama bin Laden and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as well as statements from Hamas TV and one of the victims of the Fort Hood jihad massacre. This usage of jihad is much more influential and widespread among Muslims worldwide than the benign and whitewashed understanding of it being pushed by Hamas-linked CAIR, and the fact that some Muslims don’t think of jihad as involving violence does not cancel out the fact that many do. Our AFDI campaign shines the light of truth to break through the fog of CAIR’s deceptions.

Myjihad OBLchicago3
Muhammad said, “war is deceit”, a lesson unindicted-conspirator Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) employs with vicious frequency. Hamas-CAIR is running another new propaganda ad campaign in the information battle-space. This time it’s a deceptive #MyJihad bus ad designed to distract from and obscure the true meaning of jihad (see above). Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements. Its California chapter distributed posters telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI.” [….]

The Islamic supremacists of CAIR say their MyJihad campaign is designed to respond to our Quran ad, and fight “bigotry” and “Islamophobia,” but in fact the real bigotry, the real hatred, is coming from devout Muslim jihad terrorists around the world every day: over 20,000 jihad attacks since 9/11, each one with the imprimatur of a Muslim cleric. The FBI’s latest statistics give the lie yet again to the victimhood-mongering of Hamas-CAIR, which by claiming that there has been a wave of “Islamophobia” hopes to intimidate Americans into thinking there’s something wrong with resisting jihad terror.

Here are all the ads in our series:

We won historic landmark free speech first cases against the government in New York and DC. "M.T.A. Violated Rights of Group," Judge Says By Benjamin Weiser, New York Times, and Reuters: "New York Bus System Can't Bar Pro-Israel, 'Defeat Jihad' Ads."

Wall Street Journal: 'Court Rejects MTA’s Ban Against  Transit Ads'

Our 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

Answeradcaia6r one line text

We have purchased over 220 clocks in the NYC subway system:


I love this buy…for so many reasons. First, because metaphorically it's so powerful. The clock is ticking, from a civilizational point of view. Bombs, at least in movies, tick and are set off by clocks. The urgency of our message is mirrored in the placement. Also, these are much harder to deface. Islamic supremacist thugs and goons destroyed our other ads within an hour. As the clocks hang from the ceiling, they won't be able to get to these. And if the destroyers destroy the clock, it's a much bigger expense, and the criminal penalties are much stiffer.

In addition to Stockholm and our first world conference on 911, we are assisting Tommy Robinson in his legal fight and wrongful imprisonment in the cause of freedom.

 "Controversy Escalates Over Anti-Islam Metro Ads" Time Magazine

Even after two court cases and a public outcry, these inflammatory ads in New York and Washington D.C. public transit systems aren't going anywhere


_Defeat Jihad_ ads cause stir in D.C. - Burgess Everett and Adam Snider - POLITICO.com_1349188041553
A “defeat jihad” advertisement that represents the latest clash between the nation’s commitment to free speech and its responsibility to protect against terrorism is headed to a D.C. district court this week — and possibly to Metro stations.

The American Freedom Defense Initiative, an advocacy group that warns against the Islamization of America, submitted advertisements for the New York City subway and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority system. The proposed advertisement reads: “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man,” with the tagline: “Support Israel/Defeat Jihad.”

Monday, October 01, 2012 Wall Street Journal in support of anti-jihad ads: "Call a Terrorist a 'Savage'? How Uncivilized" William McGurn, Wall Street Journal, October 1, 2012 10:12 pm

An anti-jihad message is 'hate speech' by today's topsy-turvy standards.

"In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad."

So reads an advertisement that went up a week ago in New York City subway stations. Sponsored by Pamela Geller's American Freedom Defense Initiative, the ads were meant to provoke, and they did. Denunciations poured in, activists plastered "racist" and "hate speech" stickers over the ads, and an Egyptian-American activist even got herself arrested after spray-painting one poster pink.

Establishment opinion quickly rallied to a consensus. As the Washington Post put it, while the words could be read as "hateful," "an offensive ad" nonetheless has the "right to offend." A rabbi summed up the media orthodoxy in the headline over her column for CNN: "A right to hate speech, a duty to condemn."

But the biggest drama so far this year surrounds a controversial advertising campaign in New York Metro stations. The campaign features posters, purchased by anti-Islam blogger Pamela Geller's American Freedom Defense Initiative, which say "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man," and lower down, "Support Israel; Defeat jihad."

Subway Stations to Display Controversial "Jihad" Ad NBC

Subway Stations to Display Controversial _Jihad_ Ad _ NBC New York_1348107193720

A Manhattan federal court judge ruled in July that the MTA violated the First Amendment rights of the group seeking to place the ad, The American Freedom Defense Initiative.     

The ad states "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man.'' It adds, "Support Israel. Defeat Jihad,'' in between two Stars of David.     

Pamela Geller of the American Freedom Defensive Initiative doesn't think the poster will provoke opposition after last week's deadly assault on the US Consulate in Libya and following days of protests in the Middle East.

"How have world conditions changed?" she asked. "When is a good time?" 

Here's a glimpse of the enemedia coverage of our anti-jihad ads.

New York Magazine snarks at the "timing," as if there were a good or better time to blaspheme. When, then? After the World Trade Center bombing in 1993, when there were no "provocations"? After the Cole bombing? After 7/7 in London? After 3/11 in Madrid? After the Fort Hood jihadi? After the Times Square bombing? After the Christmas balls bomber? After the teacher inadvertently named a classroom teddy bear Muhammad (at the students' request) and became a target for death and the object of rioting across the Muslim world? After the Fogel murders? After Ambassador Stevens and three US diplomats were murdered? After a youtube video that offends Muhammad? After Danish moe-toons? After French moe-toons? After Swedish moe-toons? When is it OK to blaspheme under the sharia? Anytime.
