US Muslims hope new billboards reclaim Islam's message

BOSTON (AP) New billboards in Boston, New York, San Diego and other cities proclaim what their Muslim backers say is the true message of Islam: peace and justice, not extremism and violent jihad.

The New York-based Islamic Circle of North America has erected 100 new billboards over the summer in those cities as well as in Phoenix, El Paso, Texas, Memphis, Tennessee, Cleveland and elsewhere.

They feature statements such as: "Muhammad believed in peace, social justice, women's rights" and "Muhammad always taught love, not hate; peace, not violence."

Organizers say the American Muslim community wants to reclaim the message after violent attacks by Islamic radicals, which they denounce as abusing Muhammad's teachings.
