At 12:00 noon, on Wednesday, October 1, 2014, my lawyers from the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) and I will be filing a federal civil rights lawsuit against the New York MTA for refusing to run a political ad on MTA buses that contained a quote from Hamas TV, stating, “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah.”
The lawsuit will be filed on behalf of Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, and their organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI).
The MTA refused to run the Hamas Killing Jews ad (see below) and issued a press release to explain why they thought Muslims would see the ad and start killing Jews. The MTA press release may be found at the MTA website here.
Lawyers from AFLC representing Ms. Geller, Mr. Spencer, and AFDI will be available at 12:15 p.m. on Wednesday, October 1, just outside the Federal Courthouse at 500 Pearl Street in Manhattan, after they have filed the lawsuit. Ms. Geller and her lawyers will be available for questions at that time.
The Truth Must be Told
Your contribution supports independent journalism
Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.
Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.
Geller Report's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our work is critical in the fight for freedom and because it is your fight, too.
Please contribute to our ground-breaking work here.
