This would-be protest message, which is circulating rapidly via social media and email, features a photograph that supposedly depicts a sign near Dearborn, Michigan that threatens American people with death in the name of Allah. The roadside sign, which supposedly belongs to an organization named the ‘Advancement Of Islamic Agenda For America’, features the following inflammatory message:
Allah be praised America we will kill you all and nothing you can do to stop it Allah be praised
The message has caused a great deal of angst and consternation as it travels and has been used in anti-Islamic diatribes on many political and ‘patriot’ websites and forums.
However, the sign is fake. There is no such sign in Dearborn. The sign image was created via a website that gave users the ability to create church sign pictures. The Church Sign Maker website allowed you to choose between various sign templates and add text to generate your own church sign image. To illustrate the point, I have created my own sign on the site using the very same sign template as used in the bogus protest message (see image at bottom of article).
For the record, Dearborn does have a large Arab American population, but it is not accurate to claim that it is ‘almost completely Muslim’ nor is it a ‘no go zone’ for non-muslims as implied in the message.
Subject: Sign Near Dearborn, MichiganGood Ole “Freedom of Speech” and the Supreme Court……..Unbelievable Sign Near Dearborn, MichiganSTILL THINK THEY’RE KIDDING ?
Wake Up America , We don’t live in the same Country we lived in 6 years ago American is changing and changing very fast .

Dearborn, Michigan is the first city to become almost completely Muslim.Yours may be next because they are here and more come every day. Amazing that any city would allow something like this to be displayed .
Good thing this could never happen in Canada.. Could it ?.
No. Well at least not in Quebec, because for one thing, it’s not (French predominant) bilingual. . . and people are concerned about the Confederate Flag?????
