'Islamic Apartheid' Ads Submitted To MTA By Pamela Geller In Response To Pro-Palestinian Ads (PHOTOS) Huffington Post, March 28, 2013
subway ads equating Muslims to savages, is hoping to install yet another round of anti-Muslim posters, this time at Metro-North stations.
The new campaign
will feature the headline, "This is Islamic apartheid" above disturbing
images, including one with two blindfolded men about to be hanged with
"Gay under Islamic law (Sharia),” reads the caption underneath.
Pamela Geller, NYC's most outspoken Islamophobe and executive director of the AFDI, submitted the ads to the MTA Tuesday.

The MTA, however, will likely include a prominent disclaimer on the
ads that reads, "This is a paid advertisement sponsored by the American
Freedom Defense Initiative. The display of this advertisement does not
imply MTA's endorsement of any views expressed."
Geller's ads are in response to a pro-Palestinian campaign by American Muslims For Palestine which hit Metro-North stations on Monday, the first day of Passover.

Geller wrote of the ads in a blog post:

the Third Reich, as they partnered with Hitler and shared the same goal.

This billboard was in response to a pro-Palestinian ad that read,
"4.7 million Palestinians are Classified by the U.N. as Refugees" next
to maps showing dwindling Palestine land from 1946 to the present.
