Real British citizens are livid at “Subhan Allah” (Praise Allah) slogans defacing buses across the country…just months after movie theaters banned an advertisement featuring the Lord’s Prayer. But what will they do about it except complain?
UK Daily Mail (h/t Karl) Hundreds of buses will carry posters bearing the words ‘Subhan Allah’, which means ‘Glory be to Allah’ in Arabic, for an ad campaign paid for by the Hamas-linked charity Islamic Relief. The posters will appear in London, Manchester, Leicester, Birmingham and Bradford, which have large Muslim communities.
It has been timed to coincide with the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in June, when Muslims traditionally fast (actually all they do is skip lunch) and give to charity (and carry out more bombings and terrorist attacks than most any other time of the year). The aim of the advertising campaign is to portray Islam in a positive light. (FAIL)
But last night, Christian groups asked why the Islamic adverts had been approved when a one-minute film by the Church of England was banned by Britain’s biggest cinema chains at Christmas.
Odeon, Cineworld and Vue refused to show an advert featuring the Archbishop of Canterbury and members of the public reciting the Lord’s Prayer. They banned the advertisement – which was due to be screened before the new Star Wars film in December – fearing it could offend movie-goers.
Simon Calvert, of the Christian Institute, said he hoped the Allah advert ‘signals the beginning of a new era of greater expressions of the Christian faith, which seems to have become persona non grata’. (Don’t dream)
He added: ‘People were surprised by the cinema advertising agenda to ban the Lord’s Prayer – something we all grew up with. ‘Audiences are capable of hearing expressions of Christian faith without running away screaming in horror.’ (Not when Muslims are in the audience)
Andrea Williams, director of Christian Concern, said the decision to allow the Allah advert whilst banning Christian ones highlighted the power of political correctness. She added: ‘Britain is a Christian country (not for long) and we Christians need to find our voice.
Islamic Relief, a fundraising front group for Hamas, said the posters would help to raise funds for victims of war and disasters in countries such as Syria, and portray Islam in a positive light.
Islamic Relief Director Imran Madden said: ‘There is a lot of negativity around Muslims. We want to change the perception of Islam. The campaign is about breaking down barriers and challenging misconceptions.’ (Save your money, signs won’t change minds, but stopping your anti-social, supremacist, violent and deceitful behavior just might)
