Chicago Buses Carrying Ads Trying to Convert People to Islam, Says Noah, Abraham,Jesus Were Muslims.

You too can Convert to Islam...you'll recieve a free Koran, prayer mat and suicide vest (available in sized S, M, L, XL and Michael Moore)....



October 15, 2008
So you've heard about finding love on the 151 bus. How about finding religion?

That's exactly what a few Chicagoans have discovered after seeing Chicago Transit Authority buses rolling past them with giant advertisements for Islam.

A Chicago-area Muslim group called Gain Peace has spent $29,900 to place signs on 25 CTA buses serving the North Side in a monthlong campaign organizers hope will help dispel misconceptions about Islam.

The sign caught Moses Robinson's eye. A 38-year-old Gary resident who works for a software company, he saw one of the buses on Canal Street when he left his office on a break. "Everything clicked into place," he said. After calling the number on the side of the bus and meeting with Gain Peace, he converted to Islam the next day.

Of course, most people interviewed at CTA bus stops downtown Tuesday hadn't even noticed the ads. And one rider thought they were inappropriate, although CTA officials say they see no problem as other ad campaigns on CTA vehicles have featured religious themes or messages.

Gain Peace says the campaign has been a success.

"We've had eight conversions, close to 400 calls and we've had close to 75,000 hits on our Web site in one week," said Sabeel Ahmed, the director for Gain Peace.

In fact, it's going so well, the group just bought six more weeks of ads.

  • I can understand advertising some product. People buy, you make money, it's worth spending money on the marketing.

    What gain is there to be had from advertising a religion? How do they recoup the $30k? Are they so funded that they have $30k to try to save my eternal soul without any compensation?

    • Good question, I'd like to know too.
      Anyone who actually knows about funding care to give us the answer.
      Thanks

    • Well, in most religions the goal is to convert, save, share.. with everyone around you. Think of how much money was spent on Christian Missionaries for example. 30k is nothing, because in many religious, heaven is the reward and whatever you can get for 30k on earth, will be overflowing to you for free.

      Anyway, this is a free country, what a great country in which this can happen during these trivial times and no one gets upset or wants to kill a muslim. Unfortunately too many Muslim nations ha More..

    • The Saudis throw millions into the US for the purpose of converting mostly the poor minorities. They are also one of the largest financial donaters to our Prison system as well.

    • All religions have funding methods. The vatican is the largest land owner in Italy. Islamic funding is generally via donations from wealthy individuals, a combination of the teachings of Muhammad that there's nothign wrong with being a good business man and earning alot of money (as oppsed to christianity's piosness, and meekness) and also a drive to guarentee your way into heaven by supporting the church/mosque. Similar to the way the coffers are topped up at every single church congregation in More..

  • Muhammed( may his soul burn in hell) actually bought bible stories from the Jews. He couldn't read, so a jewish slave had to explain everything. He altered the stories to his liking and turned everyone into muslims. Must have just slipped his mind that, Muslims did not exist in the times that these people did. But, on the other hand, he's explaining these stories to some really stupid people, so he could say anything. Also he has orders from god to rob and kill anyone who disbelieves in his own More..

    • It's a matter of internpretation. Islam is a splinter off from the same religion as christianity and judaism. They believe in the same God, the prophets, just different interpretations.

      So in a muslim mind, yes these people are muslims. Even Jesus. They consider jesus the second most important prophet behind Muhammed. Just not the son of God. As do the Jews.

      You might want to think before you type or speak...

    • Actually, thats not correct.
      All the emphasis on Jesus has just come up in the last few years to counteract islamaphobia.
      If you read the sira you can see the religion develop. The various biblicial charactors, in their new roles are the total fabrication of Muhammed.
      No one can get into his mind of why, except for the only works recorded.
      If you look at a pattern of his doings You can see a very evil person using religion as a means to gain money, power, and sex, doing whatever More..

    • This is very true, The Catholic church is still the largest corperation in the world. It was spread throughout Europe by the sword, for political and financial reasons. People since the begining of time have been paying large amounts of money to organized religions to ease guilt, and give them false hopes to fall back on.
      The big difference between Islam and the others, weather they are monolitic or multi-deity. Is the message they send out.
