from Jewish Chronicle:

"Ms Yahalomi ... was inspired to create the project after observing how opponents of a planned Islamic cultural centre in lower Manhattan successfully rebranded the centre as 'the Ground Zero Mosque' when it was neither a mosque nor located right at the World Trade Centre site."

It was to be an Islamic Center located close enought to Ground Zero for "call to prayer" to be heard via loudspeakers.

Branding! That's what it is. What can you do when you're branded and you know you're a man.

Ask the Reps. Most voters don't have the time and patience to read the platform so the little things you do and say is what gets your group branded, not what people say about you.

Abolish medicare, hm that's a good one.

Rauf, a supremacist and sharia nut, yelling at the crowd "your children will be muslims" that's branding for you. In a few years, Rauf, not even your children will be muslims.

This competition was doomed to failure; a skunk is a skunk.
This was the winning slogan:
“At first glance many things seem incomprehensible”.
We can examine Islam repeatedly and come to the same conclusion.

The only way Islam can be re-branded is to first start with their idiotic philosophies. Stop badgering, killing and maiming others who are not Muslims, let them as is their right in a normal world, follow their own beliefs. In addition, put aside the foolish differences between Sunnis, Shias etc etc and live your own lives and respect the differences.

Once they can start to integrate into the culture of the rest of the world it can become time for re-branding.

Dana Yahalomi and others who espouse so-called re-branding at this stage of Islam's neolithic development are fooling only themselves.

Muslims - re-brand by actions and the rhetoric will follow. Stay in the same rut you are in and you will stay branded the same as you are now.

But islam is a brand of religion that brooks no competition.
