State of Belief Radio: Taking back Islam from extremists with “My Jihad”

Learn more about the My Jihad campaign here.

The well-organized and well-funded campaign to inflame fear of and hostility toward Muslims and Islam has been well-documented. But that doesn’t make having to see Pamela Geller, et. al.’s indefensible ads posted in mass transit systems across the country any easier. It’s the kind of rhetoric that creates a polarization that makes collaboration in the service of fighting extremism impossible.

In response, a refreshing initiative to raise public awareness of the teachings of Islam, provocatively titled “My Jihad,” has appeared in the form of bus ads in Chicago and San Francisco, with plans to expand nationwide. Meet the initiator of this campaign, Ahmed Rehab, executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations in Chicago.
