In most of the hundreds of news reports about our ads, the terror-linked group CAIR is always asked to opine. Why does the media go to the American front for Hamas? Why don’t they go directly to Hamas in Gaza and ask for comment, or the Islamic State in Syria? The media labels me a “notorious flamethrower” or “hater” and such, but never do they identify CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history, or say that so many in their leadership are serving time for jihad-related crimes. Hamas-CAIR pays lip service to ISIS being a terrorist organization, but while Muslims in the US condemn the Islamic State, where are they or any Muslim group teaching against the ideology that gave rise to it?
Robert Spencer said here, “….the idea that these ads would be subjected to this kind of negative coverage, although completely expected and unsurprising, is what is really ‘shocking.’ It is now ‘shocking’ and ‘incendiary’ to oppose jihad terror — has [NY Post’s] Jennifer Fermino ever written with this much scorn about any jihad mass murderer? I highly doubt it.”
“Anti-Islamic Ads Coming to NYC Transit System,” NBC News, NY, September 20, 2014
Anti-Islamic ads will begin appearing on 100 city buses and two subway entrances next week.
The six ads include an image of American journalist James Foley just before he was beheaded standing next to his masked executioner.
The ads are paid for by the American Freedom Defense Initiative run by anti-Islam blogger Pamela Geller. She says the campaign tells truths about Islam and Jihad that the U.S. government and mainstream media ignore.
The agency is required under a federal court ruling to run controversial ads.
“We review every viewpoint ad under the standards, but a series of court rulings have made clear that our hands are largely tied,” MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz said.
The American Freedom Defense Initiative has posted ads in New York’s transit system in the past that called enemies of Israel “savages.”
