The NY Post has a pretty good piece up on our new Islamic apartheid ads countering the Muslim blood libel currently running on NYC Metro train platforms. We are a pro-freedom group, a pro-America group — so the description of our organization is not entirely accurate.

25 MetroNorth stations.
Geller requested her ads be hung in the same stations, which include Fordham and 125th Street.
The pro-Palestinian ads read: “Americans give Israel $3 billion per year! End Apartheid now!”
A spokesman for the Muslim group said the ads were about reclaiming their heritage.
She also said it was a coincidence that they went up on Passover.
Geller blasted the Muslim ads as “blood libel.”
lie will go round the world while truth is pulling its boots on” she
said in an email, paraphrasing the famous Winston Churchill quote.
All issue-based ads on MTA property feature a disclaimer that says the viewpoints expressed are not the agency’s.
