Saint of the Day: St. Rose Venerini

Some Muslims have a message for ISIS

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 10/07/16

This appeared in St. Louis, but it’s been popping up all over the country.

The story:

St. Louis Muslims are assuring people, in case they’re still unclear: Muslims are against ISIS as much as anybody else. A new billboard on Manchester Road near Weidman Road reads, “HEY ISIS, YOU SUCK!!! From: #ActualMuslims.” “We as a community are trying to get the word out, you know, that we are as much affected by this ISIS issue,” said Tariq Malik, a Chesterfield resident who helped organize the effort behind billboard. “We need to let people know that we are much against ISIS as anyone else, if not more.”
 Billboards like this one are popping up across the country. The campaign started in Chicago with a nonprofit called Sound Vision Foundation and has spread to cities like Miami and Phoenix.
