Internet gaffe by US government as UK extremist's sharia law photo used in free speech ad
by Martin Beckford and Abul Taher
The US government has made a bizarre internet gaffe by posting a British Muslim extremist's photograph of veiled women calling for sharia law, citing it as an inspirational example of free speech in the West.
The American State Department's 'Think Again Turn Away' campaign is designed to dissuade Muslims from joining IS – also known as ISIS – and other extreme groups.
The campaign posted the picture on its Twitter account last week, adding: 'In open societies, all faiths enjoy freedom of speech; under ISIS rule, no such thing as freedom of expression.'
