FORT LAUDERDALE - About 60 people turned out for a noontime rally today outside County Hall to show their opposition to transit buses carrying advertising that they say implies that religious figures Abraham, Moses and Jesus were Muslim.

"We're hoping the counties of Broward and Miami-Dade will remove the signage from the buses," said rally organizer Joe Kaufman, a Coral Springs resident and Jewish activist who heads a group called Americans Against Hate.

The transit buses in question carry advertising paid for by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and read "ISLAM: The Way of Life of Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad."

CAIR's South Florida chapter director, Altaf Ali, says a Muslim is anyone who submits their will to God and by that definition, "Abraham and all the prophets are Muslim."

On the sidewalk along Andrews Avenue, the demonstrators sang patriotic American songs, waved U.S. and Israeli flags and carried signs with slogans that included, "Throw CAIR off the bus."

Ken Freeman, 65, a retired psychologist from Coconut Creek said he considers the ads "inflammatory."

"Why on a bus?," he said "It sort of eggs you on."

Wow.. I must be blind not to have seen this.. I live in Miami Dade!

Perhaps those buses are not traveling around the city of Sweetwater which is just outside Miami.

And thanks for allowing us to post comments now!!

Hi Karmasura,
Obviously they do not care who they offend, but on the other hand they will constantly complain about what offends them.

I think you're wrong Chris. I think they know who and why they offend and INTEND to offend. They certainly offend me.

I agree they did it on purpose as they have no respect for non-Muslims.

Reader Mocha Joe requested that I add the contact for Broward County Transit. So that the readers can voice their opposition to these ads.

So much for Islam being a "religion of peace" with its character assassination of Jesus: the Islamoonies are waging war against Yeshua's religious identity and spreading lies that He was a Muslim! It's bad enough that the real Jesus is misrepresented by Catholics and Protestants, but now the Islamofascists want a piece of the action and covet and kidnap Him as one of their own!

The sooner we send the hateful Nazi Muslims packing to Mecca or Medina (or to any of their many Arab countries of origin), the better. They've polluted our lands long enough with their politico-religious lies. They must go - or our Judeo-Christian culture will!
