TORONTO - The city is investigating a controversial publicly funded mural which critics say promotes a holy war against non-Muslims.Poor fool. I figure he's another sloppy researcher who bought into taqqiya hook, line and sinker. Assuming he really doesn't know what the authentic texts in Arabic say, he'd do well enough to translate them and be honest and transparent about what they do say.
The city-funded piece of art on the wall of a building housing the Al-Tawakal mosque, in the city's east end, incorporates a verse from the Qur'an, which is written in Arabic and scrawled in modern, urban-style graffiti. [...]
Salim Ahmad, a member of the Muslim Canadian Congress, has launched a petition calling on Mayor Rob Ford to remove the contentious image.
"It's an excerpt from the Qur'an, (and) it is used as a slogan when you're fighting a jihad," he said.
In the petition, Ahmad claims the verse is used by both the Taliban and al-Qaida.
Adrian Hayles, a non-Muslim artist commissioned to come up with the mural, said Tuesday he chose that Qur'an verse because he was attracted to the look of the Arabic script and felt the English translation conveyed a positive message.
Interesting that a Muslim would be the one concerned here, and he even has the audacity to acknowledge that the Koran has some very vile themes inside.
