On Monday, TheBlaze provided an inside look at the Council on American-Islamic Relationsâ€™ (CAIR) new public relations campaign dubbed â€œMyJihadâ€ or, â€œ#MyJihad.â€ The ad campaign launched via a series of San Francisco bus ads the first week in January and soon followed suit in Chicago. And now, a man identified as Caleb Russell ironically threatened to blow up a CTA bus in the name of â€œjihad against the white devil.â€ Apparently, that was â€œ#hisjihad.â€
CAIR, which was named an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial â€” the largest terror-funding trial in U.S. history â€” claims its rebranding efforts are meant to take back the word â€œjihadâ€ from â€œanti-Muslimsâ€ and paint it in a positive light.
But Russell didnâ€™t get the full memo, as The Chicago Tribune reported:
A man threatened to blow up a CTA bus and told police he was â€œjihad against the white devilâ€ this week, causing evening rush hour passengers to flee in fear for their lives, authorities said. A judge set bail at $90,000 Tuesday for Caleb Russell, 23, of the 4700 block of South Woodlawn Avenue, who was charged with making a bomb threat, a felony, according to the Cook County sheriffâ€™s office and police.
Russell was aboard a CTA bus that was westbound on Chicago Avenue at Orleans Street in the River North neighborhood Monday about 6:20 p.m. when officers on patrol saw the bus stop in the middle of the intersection, according to a police report.
