New AFDI #MyJihad ads tell truth about jihad, expose Hamas-linked CAIR's deception

This new AFDI ad campaign is Pamela Geller's most brilliant campaign yet. (And I am proud to note that I helped choose some of the quotes and images.) It pierces through the ridiculous and condescending deception of Hamas-linked CAIR's attempt to whitewash the concept of jihad, as epitomized by this ad:
 Pamela Geller explains the new campaign:
AFDI has created a brand new ad campaign to fight the disinformation and propaganda campaigns of Islamic supremacists and Muslim Brotherhood groups in America. Our new ads will counter the new deceptive #myjihad campaign by unindicted co-conspirator Hamas-CAIR and are a truth antidote to CAIR's deceptions.
It is reprehensible to put a happy face on mass murder, ethnic cleansing, honor violence, religious persecution, etc. Look how powerful Hamas-CAIR says I am:
 Local Muslim Launches Campaign To 'Reclaim' Meaning of 'Jihad' Chicagoist
CAIR-Chicago executive director Ahmed Rehab, who's behind the campaign, told the Sun-Times the term "jihad" has been twisted by groups such as Geller's so that its true meaning is obscured and the word is most closely associated with "holy war." ...
Really? Tell that to Osama bin Laden, Nidal Hassan, Anwar Awlaki, Meshaal, Sheikh Qaradawi, et al, and millions of jihadists all over the world.
Our new campaign focuses on how jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism. It uses actual quotes by jihadis and Islamic supremacists including Osama bin Laden and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as well as statements from Hamas TV and one of the victims of the Fort Hood jihad massacre. This usage of jihad is much more influential and widespread among Muslims worldwide than the benign and whitewashed understanding of it being pushed by Hamas-linked CAIR, and the fact that some Muslims don’t think of jihad as involving violence does not cancel out the fact that many do. Our AFDI campaign shines the light of truth to break through the fog of CAIR’s deceptions.
Americans need to understand Islamic jihad that so we can counter it effectively. Honest moderate Muslims need to stand up against this and work for Islamic reform rather than blame my ads for pointing out the truth.
MyJihad is a public education campaign that seeks to share the proper and true meaning of Jihad (see below). Much thanks to Big Fur Hat for execution.
