Anti-Muslim Ads to Be Posted on NYC Subway

By: Associated Press
By: Associated Press

Ads that call some radical Muslims "savage" are going to be posted in the New York City subway system next week.
Conservative blogger Pamela Geller won a court order that allowed her to put the ads up Monday in 10 subway stations. New York transit officials had initially refused to run the ad, calling it "demeaning."
The ad reads: "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad."
Geller -- who once campaigned against a planned Islamic center near ground zero -- says she isn't concerned that the ads will spark violent protests that have rocked the Middle East over an anti-Islamic film.
New York Muslim leaders called the ad hate speech. The ad has also appeared on San Francisco buses.

    Name: I agree with you and I also agree the story fro 1928 is relevant. We could have the same mindset about Muslim as these bigots did then. You are right not all Muslims are terrorists, andd not all Muslims are Anti-American. The extremists who call themselves Muslim are not all they are is rabid hate filled bullies.

    To Anonymous: I agree with 99% of what you said and I also think savages is an excellent word. However what Sarah is talking about is anti-Jewish. The use of the word Zionist, is purely done by the Terrorist organizations. I agree they need to be gotten rid of, like the disease they are. But not all Muslims are bad, anti American or anything else.

    To Name: So I guess a few pieces of paper are the pinnacle of bigotry, and will just add so much fuel to the fire. What about The 3,000 Truly INNOCENT people who were killed when "peace loving" muslims flew planes into the WTC. What about the TRUE HEROES that brought their own plane down in PA. so it would hit another target. This isn't about a race causing economic troubles as the Nazi's thought in 1920's and 30's Germany. This is about a group of savages endangering the entire world. The real lesson learned from history. We see what happens when someone doesn't finish a job, as the crusaders failed to do in their quest for the Holy Land.

    To Sarah: You need to stop drinking the koolaid, and you need to stop believing everything you read on the internet. You would be better off believing in fairys. These are not nice misunderstood people, they kill people, because they think it is a good thing to do. They belong in jail, hell, or wherever they blow themselves to.

    To MS Bernheim: You are as bad as the idiot who put up the adds. Six milliom Jews died in the Holocaust. The Zionist/Isrealies do not have consentration camps. They do not kill innocent children, women, they do not do experiments on them either. You are a person who needs to study history much better before you open your mouth. Not all Palestinians are terrorists, but they are not all innocent bystanders either. I am against what is going on, but praying it away does nothing. We need to stop the terrorists now.

    To Sarah: thank you for your insight. Biggotry shows up under funny names, 6 million jews died because of Hitler, The Israelies are not trying to kill 8 million of anyone. I doubt if there 8 million Palistians in the world. If they would stop supporting a terriort organization, there wouldn't be any problems. It is not like they haven't time and again been offered terms and said Jews dead or into the seaa. Please don't be another bigot.

    I am appalled by what I have read here. Bigots are everywhere. I was sent yesterday a story that took place in 1928 in a small town in upstate NY. A little girl went missing. She was gone 24 hours went for a walk and got lost. Came home fine,24 hours later, but within the 24 hours a rummor of Blood Libal was started against a 20 family Jewish neighborhood in this little tiny town. The Rabbi was almost arrested, and it turns out that the mayor was a bigot, and several people in this tiny town were KKK. Someone could have been killed because these bigots. Is it a true story. Yep, I have been many times in this tiny town, love the people I know there, and have visited the jewish grave yard. This is part of NY history. So shame on anyone who is bigoted for any reason. Plus why make a situation worse by adding more fuel to the fire. We need to put out the problem not help make it bigger. We need to be more level headed. Come up with concrete solutions.

    Sarah: I agree two wrongs do not make a right. Bigots come in every shape, size, color and religion.

    I do hope readers will not judge all of Jewish Heritage by the bigoted Zionist with an agenda. Choose to read ifamericansknew.org, know how many men, women,and children who happen to be Palestinian but not necessarily Muslim are degraded by this. Israel is demanding not asking for even more than the 8 million per day, no questions asked to support the current holocaust. Support faiths of all kinds that do no harm and enhance life. Zionists do not.

    I AGREE WITH FREE SPEECH. I ALSO DON'T THINK WE NEED TO GIVE THEM MORE FUEL FOR THEIR FIRE. I AGREE THEY ARE BARBAIC. THEY ARE NOT MUSLIMS, NOT WHEN THEY DO WHAT THEY DO. THEY CAN CALL THEMSELVES ISLANIC MILITANTS THEY CAN CALL THIS A HOLY WAR. THEY ARE JUST TERRORISTS, WITH NO COUNTRY, GOD OR ANY HUMANITY.
