Why? Because that’s how sharia creeps in.
Around 150 Arabic-language billboards have been seen in the US lately in different parts of the country. One says: “إنسان” [Human] appeared first in Lansing, Michigan and the other is “أهلا وسهلا” [Ahlan wa Sahlan] in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
The billboards appeared shortly before the US midterms that took place on November 6 as part of the 50-State Initiative, a nation-wide public art project funded and organized by “For Freedoms.” The two billboards were designed by a Lebanese-born, Germany-raised Jamila El Sahili and the American artist, Michael Rakowitz.
The organization that aims to promote “public discussions on civic issues and core values”, had raised $150,000 through crowdfunding to pay for the art project.
Their project coincided with Nov. midterm elections that witnessed the win of two Muslim women, one Arab and another Somali who entered history as the first two Muslim Congresswomen.
The billboards were deliberately offered with no translation, as Sahili said: “I don’t want people to see what it means, because it can be a conversation starter,” she said in an interview with The National.
Her participation in the campaign began with her project “Human” [إنسان]. She designed T-shirts, tote bags and buttons using the same word in Arabic for what she called a response to the “dehumanising” of the Muslim community in America after 9/11 and to promote the beauty of the Arabic language.
So she wanted it to be anti-partisan just in time for mid-term elections that had a record number of Muslims running? And it was response to the supposed “dehumanising” of the Muslim community in America after 9/11?
In a separate article, “She said the message, “human being,” is aimed at promoting an understanding of her faith.”
In other words, this was pure Islamic dawah and desensitizing infidels.
Allah is not simply Arabic for god. If it were, then explain this in Malaysia : Word Allah should not be used by non-Muslims
In the ruling, Judge Lau Bee Lan said use of the word Allah was constitutional as long as The Herald used the word to educate members of the Christian faith, Bernama reported Sunday.
Educate them about Islam. Otherwise, using it is unconstitutional.
Muslim groups in Malaysia have said the word Allah should be used exclusively by Muslims and represented a sacrilege of the Muslim faith when used by non-Muslim publications.
Who is dehumanizing who Jamila El Sahili?
