College Campus “Islam Awareness Week” Already Backfiring on Organizers
New flyers promoting "Islam Awareness Week" are starting to backfire on event organizers.
This probably wasn't the kind of "awareness" they were looking for...
To this poster advertising Islam Awareness Week, someone has added a note demonstrating he has more Islam Awareness than the organizers of Islam Awareness Weeks would like:
Islam Awareness Sura 9-5
Sura 9:5 is chapter nine, verse five of the Qur’an: “And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”
That’s the quintessential example of a Qur’an verse that Islam Awareness Week types would prefer you weren’t aware of. This is, understandably, a verse much beloved by present-day jihadists. In a 2003 sermon, Osama bin Laden rejoiced over this verse: “Praise be to Allah who revealed the verse of the Sword to his servant and messenger [Muhammad], in order to establish truth and abolish falsehood.”
