Billboard taunts Donald Trump in Arabic

“Donald Trump can’t read this, but he’s afraid of it anyway.”

A billboard written in Arabic in Dearborn, Michigan, taunts Trump and the Republican presidential nominee’s proposed ban of Muslims entering the country.

The billboard is one of three across the country paid for by The Nuisance Committee, an independent super PAC that says it is “dedicated to opposing Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.”

The organization’s founder, Max Temkin, is one of the creators of the popular card game Cards Against Humanity. Money for the PAC was generated through Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump add-on packs to the game, Nuisance Committee spokeswoman Melissa Harris said.

The billboard in Dearborn directs viewers to trumpisscared.org, which shows a timeline of Trump’s statements on Muslims, Syrian refugees, and immigration.

The other billboards are in Chicago near O’Hare airport, and in Orlando near the University of Central Florida.

“We on the committee really believe that Donald Trump represents a threat to our values and our democracy in ways that other Republican candidates have not. This is not about Republicans or Democrats — this is about Donald Trump,” Harris said.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations said the billboard represents the sentiments of the Arab community.

“It’s an attempt to push back against these bigoted statements and policy proposals using humor,” CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper said.

A spokesman for Donald Trump’s campaign could not be immediately reached.

    Put this on a billboard. Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

        As an isolated statement is it awful. In context it makes more sense, though still sounds quite awful. This is what is referred to as an imprecatory psalm. This is text that is not the direct word of God, but rather of the author asking something of God. The rest of the psalm refers to the destruction of Babylon, which was considered a city mired in sin. The author implored God to punish the Babylonians, and yes even their children. And while this sounds (and is) quite disturbing, it is along the same line as wishing death on murderers, molesters, rival nations, etc. The fact that it references children just gives it an extra layer of WTF but does by no means represent an overriding theme for the entire Bible. The other book is quite different and absolutely packed with statements calling for the death of just about everyone who isn’t a true believer, even the ones who are sort of believers but not all the way. Also, look at the fact that most followers of the bible are strictly anti-violence (and in the case of children pro-life) where as you have hundreds of thousands on the other side living their entire life to eradicate everyone who is not them

        So while your point is irrelevant, the statement by itself doesn’t paint a rosy picture of the times. But we’re in the present now and its the other side that seeks our destruction 24/7 and has no problem admitting it.
