Stop spreading lies! Phony Islamic sign post being spread by my Facebook friends.

Below is a Facebook post I seen several times in the  last couple days.  It is being shared time and time again. I have removed the name of the person who posted it because I don't want to embarrass any one person who reposted this.  The problem with this is that it is a lie.  That sign and that organization does not exist. This is the kind of lie that can lead to vigilantes killing innocent Muslim Americans.

A mosque sign in Dearborn, Michigan!!
Do you think they are kidding? Hard to believe that such a sign could be set up without permission!!!
WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!!
Here is what Snopes says about this sign:
Origins:   This photograph of an outdoor sign has been identified in social media postings as belonging to a mosque (or some other Islam-associated administrative building) with the cumbersome title of "Advancement of Islamic Agenda for America." The sign advertises to viewers that organization's ominous threat "AMERICA WE WILL KILL YOU ALL AND NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO STOP IT," bracketed by invocations of the exaltation "ALLAH BE PRAISED."
Neither the sign nor the organization is real, however. The photo is a fake created using the Church Sign Maker, a web site that allows users to create realistic-looking images of church signs bearing messages of their choosing:
Ever seen those signs in front of churches with the moveable letters? Ever wanted to rearrange the letters to make your own church sign? Well, now you can. Choose a design below, add your text, and a personalized church sign photo will be created for you! Save it, send it to a friend, put on your website, or use it however you like. Enjoy!
Note: these church signs aren't real, they don't exist in the real world. You'll be making a fake photo of a church sign.
In this case the "Advancement of Islamic Agenda for America" sign is clearly an altered version of the Church Sign Maker's "Classic Design #5" offering (as indicated by the identical nature of the two signs' sizes, shapes, and background objects in their photos):

With the beheading of James Foley and the brutality of ISIS and the ethnic cleansing of Christians in Iraq, outrage against Muslim extremism is understandable. I share the outrage.  However, most of the victims of Muslim extremist are other Muslims. We should not forget that.  We should resist those who would paint all Muslims with the same brush and use lies to inspire hate. I hope the government is being vigilant in keeping us safe from terrorist attack, but spreading lie that could lead to suspicion of all Muslims and indiscriminate violence against Muslims is dangerous.

In the middle ages when the Black Plague spread across Europe, rumors spread that the cause was Jews poisoning wells and many Jews were burned at the stake.  In World War II, 120,000 Americans of Japanese heritage were rounded up and put in concentration camps for no other reason than that they were of Japanese heritage. I don't think we have evolved much in the last thousand years or the last sixty. I am sure there are many Americans who would be perfectly happy if all Muslims were rounded up and imprisoned. Unfortunately many of these people are conservatives who claim to love the constitution, liberty, and the rule of law.

Please think before you click "like" or "share." Please don't spread dangerous lies.

  1. What you say may or may not be correct, however the fact still remains that the koran has over 100 quotes from their prophet telling the believers to kill and/or subjugate anyone that does not believe in their form of worship. Even if this sign doesn't exist now it will in a matter of time. Do your homework and look into their holy book.

    1. The bible says to kill a list of people too, sell your daughter to her rapist too.....your turn....

    2. First of all, it is hard to believe that this sign is not real, just something created on the web. And if it is, whoever did this, is absolutely playing with fire. I'll just leave you with this.....watch Jihad in America: The Grand Deception on the AWE channel and you may change your mind about that sign.

    3. First, the sign is obviously fake
      Second, the message has been stated many times by Islamic 'brain washed' extremists with no capability of thought
      Third, over our history, and even today, similar messages are posted by KKK and other 'brain washed' idiots that claim themselves as christians.

    4. To the Little Garage: Please don't just throw some random paraphrased "quote" and attribute it to the Bible. You're doing EXACTLY what the person who created this photo did! If you're going to quote the Bible, QUOTE IT by book, chapter and verse. READ THE WHOLE THING, IN CONTEXT, and don't just pull out second-, third- and fourth-hand garbage from your head and state it as fact. YOU ARE the reason "A Disgruntled Republican in Nashville" wrote this article!

    5. who cares, do like i do. take bacon over to the local halal meat section and intermingle it with their meats. eating a bacon sandwich should be a prerequisite to entering the US and buying arms.

    6. who cares. muslims are evil people, and if you don't believe it actually read the koran, specifically book of surah. personally do like i do and take bacon into the halal meat and food section of those grocers and mingle it with the food. haha silly muslim trash...

  2. 100% correct. Anyone who is truly interested should study the Koran and find
    out the truth for themselves. It is not that "most" Muslims are "peace loving"
    and "tolerant of others". It is just that most are not active in their faith; just
    like the thousands that are not active in the Christian faith! If they were to
    be adhering to the letter of the Koran, they would be just as radical as the
    terrorists we see now advancing. Notice that these Muslims are also killing
    and torturing other Muslims...because they are not adhereing to the letter
    of the law of the Koran!!!! Whether the sign is real now or not; it will be
    or something close to it! Dearborn, Michigan that has a no-go area that Christians
    or any non-Muslim can't go into!!! They refuse to adhere to any American
    Federal, State or County laws. Firemen, policeman, emts - NOT ALLOWED
    in! 5 Christians were arrested for handing out pamphlets with the gospels
    in arabic and english OUTSIDE the entrance to a fair ground where the
    muslims were having a festival. They were told they had to be 5 blocks
    away!!! They were peaceful, smiling and not pushy - just handing the
    pamphlets to whoever would take them. They were arrested for
    "disturbing the peace". Wake up Amerca!!!!!

    1. Logic escapes some people. Good point.

  4. No go zones? seriously, you believe this you need to wake up. Better yet, go to Dearborn and check it out. Probably be really disappointed to see the truth. The only no go zones in the US are in the heads of radicals who believe, make up and/or spread such lies. Statements like these are what embarrass America and make us look like a bunch of uneducated, fear-mongering idiots.
    Plenty of real things to worry about without making things up.

  5. "Below is a Facebook post I seen several times in the last couple days."

    Please correct the above quote. I could not possibly give credence to anything you have to say if you cannot write intelligibly. Also, you need to read about Islam. Their entire pool of believers are called to convert or kill the infidel. Perhaps you should read the Koran before you so easily pacify the enemy who seeks to convert or kill you.

  6. The Prophet Muhammad was a murderer and a pedophile; so it is appropriate that his words in the Koran guide a murderous and perverted religion. It would be better for the world that Islam did not exist. Muslims are ruining and poisoning the world. Just look at what is happening in Hungary and elsewhere in Europe with the refugees from Syria.
