The Chicago Transit Authority Wants YOU - to convert to Islam

Well, isn't this just lovely. In Barack Hussein Obama's home town, the local buses are carrying advertisements to try to entice the citizenry to convert to the 'religion of peace.'

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.
This guy claims you get a free Koran, prayer mat and suicide vest.

By the way, the North side of Chicago is where all the Jews live. Hmmm.

I live outside of Chicago, on the Northside and I wonder what would be the reaction if someone decided to blow up one of those nice Muslim buses?

How apropos: a free Koran, prayer mat and suicide vest. How about if somebody raises another $30k for a follow-up CTA ad campaign with the sign slogan "Islam-Satan's response to Judaism and Christianity" or "You'll love Islam. It's a blast!". /tongue in cheek
