Calling It Out

Abby Zimet

Christian, Muslim and Jewish leaders in Colorado have launched a new ad campaign on busses to rebut an earlier set of anti-Muslim ads that cited thousands of Islamic attacks with the slogan, "It's Not Islamophobia. It's Islamorealism." The leaders stressed what too many forget: that the "Love Thy Neighbor" message conveys "a shared concept in the three religions."

"When we see hate speech, it is incumbent on us who are in the majority to call it out."

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
