A billboard campaign in Australia launched by an Australian Muslim group caused outrage from some of Sydney's Christians for a poster that reads: "Jesus, a Prophet of Islam," the London Daily Mail reported. One Catholic bishop said that the posters were a "direct assault on Christian beliefs."

The group, called Mypeace, claims that the campaign was made to encourage awareness about Islam, and correct some misconceptions the public may have regarding the religion. The group said the signs will be up for four weeks before being placed on city buses.

Some other slogans posted include: "Holy Qur'an: The Final Testament" and "Muhammad: Mercy to Mankind."
