War of words: Muslim activists trying to wrestle ‘jihad’ away from extremists and critics 

War of words: Muslim activists trying to wrestle ‘jihad’ away from extremists and critics  | Curating the Defeat Jihad Ads | Scoop.it
A group of Muslim activists is fighting a battle of words to reclaim “jihad” from Muslim extremists and critics who they say have wrongly used the term to justify violence and discrimination.
alaa's insight:

This article show the Muslim’s reaction to these ads. However, the response is not  offensive. These people are only trying to explain how these ads are not pertaining to the truth of Muslims. It is important to hear the voice of people who are being the target of a harsh propaganda.

alaa's insight:

The journalist calls for people to ignore the ad. , but I think that ignoring means remaining  silent about it when in fact what is needed is to combat these racist words which only create bloodshed and unrest.

alaa's insight:

This is excellent to see because it shows how one woman was vandalizing the ads and getting arrested. How come some people have the right to produce such ads, and this woman does not have the right to protest them?

Controversial 'Defeat Jihad' ad to appear in NYC subways

Controversial 'Defeat Jihad' ad to appear in NYC subways | Curating the Defeat Jihad Ads | Scoop.it
A controversial ad that critics say is hateful toward Muslims will appear in New York subway stations starting Monday, despite the city's attempts to halt it.
alaa's insight:

An article by the CNN, which quotes experts who decided that these ads are not against the freedom of speech and that they are totally legal. Of course, I think if freedom of speech means insulting other minority groups, then I think democracy is in danger. What do you guys think?

alaa's insight:

This is a good one which had many nice pictures that my audience would enjoy as a reaction against the jihad ads. It is worth showing what jihad means and how it is such a subjective term that means many things.
