The anti-Islam group led by Pamela Geller is running advertisements on San Francisco public buses comparing the religion to Nazism.
San Francisco city buses began carrying political ads on Monday denounced by several municipal leaders as anti-Islamic, racist messages that unfairly depict Arabs and Muslims as groups defined by extremism and violence.
Akiva Freidlin wanted to talk back after anti-Muslim ads went up in New York subways. So he went to the crowd to fund a series of ads with a different message.
Some national Jewish organizations joined a coalition of religious groups calling on the Washington Metro system to donate profits from an anti-Islam ad to charity.
A day after anti-Muslim ads appeared in 10 subway stations across New York City, they got the ultimate Bronx cheer.
New York City’s Metropolitan Transit Authority said it is considering its options after a U.S. District Court ordered the authority to run an advertisement that reads “Support Israel. Defeat Jihad.”
Maybe they felt left out after seeing those dueling holiday bus ads by believers and atheists. After pro-Palestinian group Seattle Mideast Awareness Campaign bought ads on local buses alleging “Israeli war crimes,” a group calling itself the American Freedom Defense Initiative countered by buying its own ads with messages like “One Billion Dollars to Hamas: Your Taxpayer dollars at Work,” according to JTA. Both campaigns are slated to begin next week.
