Judge Rules MTA Must Run ‘Killing Jews Is Worship’ Ad on Buses, Subways

A New York judge ruled today that the Metropolitan Transit Authority must run a pro-Israel group’s controversial ads, widely considered to be anti-Jihad, that could allegedly incite violence against Jewish people.

Judge John G. Koeltl said that the ad, commissioned by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, was protected by freedom of speech and could therefore run on MTA property (as long as the MTA does not appeal). “While the court is sensitive to the M.T.A.’s security concerns, the defendants have not presented any objective evidence that the ‘Killing Jews advertisement’ would be likely to incite imminent violence,” he wrote.

This is controversial to say the least!

The ads in question, which will be displayed on buses and in subway stops, will look like this:

jihad advertisement

Very controversial, Yes.

Do I believe in Freedom of Speech?? Yes, but if you read the ad and not the small print at the bottom, at a glance it reads “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah!”

This is probably one of the most confusing ads I have seen in a long time.

In my own opinion, that’s just wrong!
