Court allows Islamic 'killing of Jews poster' on buses

Last year, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) refused to display an ad by the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) because it contained graphic imaging of a "Muslim killing a Jew"-  a menacing man is shown with his face masked in a Middle Eastern scarf next to the quote, "Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah." The quote was attributed to “Hamas MTV” and included the tagline, “That's His Jihad. What's yours?"

The case was taken to the Manhattan Federal court, which has now ruled to allow the posters be displayed. The Judge, John Koeltl wrote, "While the court is sensitive to the MTA’s security concerns, the defendants have not presented any objective evidence that the Killing Jews advertisement would be likely to incite imminent violence."

Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) (also known as the American Freedom Defense Initiative) is an American organization that has been widely described as Islamophobic. It was founded by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer.

Following the ruling, Pamela Gellar,  has said she plans to increase the numbers of poster ads than she originally planned.

Weird poster in my opinion.
