Lokale muslimer i Spring Hope, USA er oprørte over dette skilt og dets bagside.
Words like “bomb” and “die” draw attention to the small sign in front of Good News Independent Baptist Church.
Rev. Gary Murrell put up the sign, which on one side claims the message of Islam is “submit, convert or die.”
The other side reads: “When is the last time you heard of a Jew or Christian with a bomb strapped to their body?”
Despite some in the Islamic community who claim the sign is offensive, Murrell says it is not a hate sign.
“It was not put up there with the purpose of showing that we hate those people,” he said. “It’s not the people, it’s the religion.”
Murrell says it is a violent religion compared to Christianity. But not everyone agrees.
But discussion about the message will likely continue. The Islamic Center of Raleigh is inviting Murrell and his congregation for a visit to learn more about Islam.
