I'm not sure if anyone has posted about this before. 


New anti-Muslim ‘Quran quote’ ads go up in NYC subways

By AL ARABIYA WITH AGENCIES

The group that equated Muslim radicals with savages in advertisements last year has put up another set of provocative ads featuring quotes from the Quran in dozens of New York City subway stations.

The American Freedom Defense Initiative purchased space next to 228 clocks in 39 stations for ads with an image of the burning World Trade Center and a quote attributed to the Quran saying: “Soon shall we cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers.”

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) said the ads went up Monday and will run for a month.

The same group paid for ads to be displayed in 10 stations in September. Those ads implied enemies of Israel are “savages.”

In October, a group of Jewish organizations in the United States joined a coalition of religious groups critical of an anti-Islam ad in the Washington DC metro system and urged that the profits made from the ad be donated to a charity.

Countering the placement “of offensive, anti-Muslim ads in the D.C. Metro system is an important opportunity to affirm our commitment both to free speech and to a society that deplores hate and hate speech,” said Rabbi Batya Steinlauf, according to Global News Service of the Jewish People website.

Rabbi Steinlauf is the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington’s director of social justice and interfaith initiatives, and president of the Interfaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington.
“We are all part of one community,” she told the website.

A similar ad in the New York subway system was sprayed-over in September by Egyptian-American activist Mona Eltahway, who was briefly detained and argued that her move was an act of freedom of expression just as the ad was.

The MTA also sold space last year to competing advertisements that urged tolerance.

I think I will put some ads for anti-n* s and and anti-w* s. I'll add coons to the list for an even 15K.
