"JIHAD" Scrawled Across I-95 Near Delray Beach Incites Racism And Islamophobia

Categories: News

On Northbound I-95 near Delray Beach
Over the weekend, the word "JIHAD" in bold and black letters materialized on the side of 1-95 North near Delray Beach, without a word of explanation.

Next, on SW Fourth Avenue, police found a sticker emblazoned with the word "Jihad" clinging to an electrical box.

Was this all the work of a harmless prankster? Or something much darker?

Some people have decided to fill in the blanks.

It doesn't take much to call forth Americans' latent feelings of Islamophobia -- even a word at an intersection seems to do the trick -- and spark a grand conflation of Jihad and radicalism with traditional Islam. And this recent example is, sadly, no exception.

And the tweets have poured in.

this is why we will be so easy to take over from within. no one believes that they are here to do any harm. just like almost everyone thinks obama walks on water and is not trying to turn the u.s into a 3rd world country.

America needs to look past it's borders and see what ISLAM is doing to the UK, France, SWEDEN etc...HELL look at what it is doing IN AMERICA and get a clue..we are under JIHAD already just the politically correct are so dumbed down they are afraid to call a SPADE A SPADE...

Islam is not a race..JIHAD means HOLY war...you people are too stupid to even see the danger of JIHAD in AMERICA...guess you think BOSTON MARATHON being blown up was just some kids pulling a prank..

How to get in the news: draw a swastika or write "jihad" in big, bold letters. Sit back and watch the race-baiting media go crazy race-baiting their readers.

This is the work for Taylor Chapman...not the work of Islam or Muslims.

Doubtful this graffiti was written by a Muslim. Not buying this.

I certainly hope they find the tagger that wrote this message on the wall. Defacing DHMV property is illegal and should not be tolerated. Not sure if Mr. Rosen understands what he is saying, but he sounds a little foolish. 

Jihad comes from the Arabic word Jihid, means-To do ones best, or a common translation to Struggle as the author stated.

it's just a word...  kind of like fag is just a word?  kind of like nigger is just a word?  kind of like spic is just a word?  kind of like kite is just a word?  kind of like lesbo is just a word?  kind of like retard is just a word?   i could go on and on and on...    notice the fowl language that comes out of the so called "tolerant" party here.....

Terrence will you write that one with a prepackaged CAIR tweet headline too?

All I can tell is it caused a massive overreaction which is probably what the tagger was trying to do. Its likely it was not even done by any muslim.

So which dhimmi wrote these CAIR talking points in the headline?  

I noticed that Jihad was painted over the doves set in the concrete.  That seems to make a statement no?

If anything the graffiti incites hatred and violence against Christians and other Kuffar.  

Maybe Terrence would like to write his next article on the racist religious hate term Kuffar?  Or maybe he likes his head where it is?

Typical overreaction.  Most likely it has nothing to do with muslims, but rather someone trying to cause EXACTLY what happened.

I think it's some kid's tag. There's one on one of the bridges by SR 84 and I-95 near the airport.

@nhamze Nice try...Jihad means HOLY WAR...you can not use AlTaqiyya here :)

@overthe47percenters This is a perfect example of a false equivalency.  Those words are derogatory to a race, while the word "jihad" is not.

And I think you are trying to say "foul" and not "fowl" which means "bird".

@mchlhwrd First, those are seagulls. Not doves. This is Florida.

And, when Kuffar is scrawled across a giant slab of concrete, yes, I will write a story about that.

you are right on the foul...how embarassing i would jump into a debate and then misspell.  the words are hate words and not all are race specific.

@erinG @BigAl  It is a word that means HOLY WAR and with moslems almost DAILY being caught in AMERICA for wanting to and for blowing people up...I would say it has a PURPOSE to being spray painted where it was..ANYONE could also blow up the boston marathon but only a MOSLEM would do such a thing :)

@erinG @BigAl   Hey, you want a fool & an idiot, look in the mirror. My point is this guy in the Cadillac stating, "There are no terrorists." ??? What planet is this clown from? You, in the mean time, can shut the hell up!!
