New York City Mayor Calls Teachings Of Islam “Outrageous, Inflammatory And Wrong”
Ok, to be more specific, de Blasio calls ads exposing the teachings of Islam as “outrageous, inflammatory and wrong.” What is truly outrageous, however, is Islam’s open-ended call to “terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an” (Qur’an Sura 8:12). What is inflammatory is the timeless decree that “the most intense of the people in animosity toward the [Muslim] believers to be the Jews” (Qur’an Sura 5:82). What is just plain wrong is the eternal edict to “cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve” (Qur’an Sura 3:151). But, according to New York City’s back-bending mayor, exposing such vile hatred is somehow itself hateful. Because in de Blasio’s world, truth need not apply when it comes to the religion of lies and its ballot-casting adherents …
Amos 5:10, “There are those who hate the one who upholds justice in court and detest the one who tells the truth.”

One of the ads, which will appear on 100 buses and at two subway entrances, includes an image of American journalist James Foley just before he was beheaded.
In a statement to the Daily News, de Blasio said the ads had ‘no place in New York City, or anywhere.’
‘These hateful messages serve only to divide and stigmatize when we should be coming together as one city,’ de Blasio said.
‘While those behind these ads only display their irresponsible intolerance, the rest of us who may be forced to view them can take comfort in the knowledge that we share a better, loftier and nobler view of humanity.’
Controversial conservative blogger Pamela Geller is bankrolling the ad blitz, at a cost of $100,000. In an interview, she called it an ‘education campaign” to highlight the dangers of jihadist ideology.'” Read more.
