But hey, that’s not what’s important. What’s important is that the media can use the word “anti-Muslim” repeatedly, even if they are referring to beheading jihadists.
Here’s the actual, correct story:
Our organization filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) for refusing to run a “Stop the Islamic Jew-Hatred” advertisement on SEPTA property.
In May, AFDI submitted the below advertisement to SEPTA’s advertising agent for display on SEPTA property:
As noted in the lawsuit, AFDI’s message is timely in light of the fact that many Jews (and Christians) are being persecuted in Islamic countries in the Middle East, and many of these countries receive aid from the United States. Moreover, the Israel/Palestinian conflict has drawn intense international media attention, as Hamas is using human shields (mostly innocent women and children) to protect its rockets from Israel’s defense forces, as the Islamic terrorist organization continues its deadly attack on Jews in Israel.
Although SEPTA accepts as a matter of policy and practice controversial political-issue, public-issue, and religious-issue advertisements, it rejected AFDI’s advertisement, claiming that the ad “tends to disparage or ridicule any person or group of persons on the basis of race, religious belief, age, sex, alienage, national origin, sickness or disability.”
