Our Islamic Jew-hatred ad is getting massive coverage in national and international news outlets. Most of the news stories are showing the ad, which serves to educate millions who know nothing of the history of Islamic Jew-hatred. The notoriously anti-semitic Guardian didn’t run the ad, but ran a glamor photo of Hitler instead. Very telling.
Philly buses ordered to accept ads featuring Hitler, Wall Street Journal, March 12, 2015
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia’s transit system has been ordered to accept provocative ads that include a 1941 photograph of Adolf Hitler with a former Arab leader after a federal judge ruled in favor of a pro-Israel group’s free-speech lawsuit.
The proposed bus ads carry a tagline saying: “Jew Hatred: It’s in the Quran.”
The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority believes the ads violate “minimal civility standards” and will consider an appeal. The Philadelphia Inquirer first reported on Wednesday’s ruling by U.S. District Judge Mitchell Goldberg.
The ad in question features a photograph of a 1941 meeting between Adolf Hitler and Hajj Amin al-Husseini, described by the group as a Palestinian leader and Hitler ally.
The ads are produced by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, a New Hampshire-based group that opposes U.S. aid to Islamic countries and has filed similar lawsuits in New York and other cities.
SEPTA General Counsel Gino J. Benedetti testified in December that he rejected the ad because he thought it “put every single Muslim in the same category (of) being a Jew hater.”
Did Counsel Benedetti just say every Muslim is a Jew-hater?
Goldberg concluded that the transit authority’s “anti-disparagement” policy, while well-intentioned, was not clearly defined and therefore potentially discriminatory. He noted that SEPTA has run viewpoint ads on public issues including animal cruelty, birth control, religion and fracking.
“It is clear that the anti-disparagement standard promulgated by SEPTA was a principled attempt to limit hurtful, disparaging advertisements. While certainly laudable, such aspirations do not, unfortunately, cure First Amendment violations,” Goldberg wrote.
