Just for knowing our “moderate” ad goes up on 100 San Francisco buses next week. Our lawsuit was filed in NYC last week and we are about to file a lawsuit against San Francisco transit for refusing our Hitler/Mufti al Husseini ad.
“Pamela Geller-led Group Sues MTA Over ‘Killing Jews’ Ad”, The Jewish Week, 10/08/14, The Jewish Week via JTA
A pro-Israel group sued New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority for rejecting its advertisement on the city’s public transportation.
The American Freedom Defense Initiative, which is headed by blogger Pamela Geller and is known for its sharp anti-Muslim rhetoric, sought to post an ad that included the quote “Killing Jews is Worship that draws us close to Allah.” Geller says the quote is from Hamas-affiliated TV and exposes the organization’s true agenda.
The lawsuit was filed Oct. 1 in a federal court in Manhattan, The Associated Press reported.
The MTA had said that the ad could be seen as a call to violence against Jews and violated its “viewpoint-neutral” advertising standards.
The American Freedom Defense Initiative alleged that its free speech and due process rights were violated. It noted that the ad has run in other cities without inciting violence.
Geller and her group have drawn attention for their controversial ads. In a rare back-down recently, the group complied with a request from the family of journalist James Foley to remove from an ad an image from the video depicting his beheading in August.
