NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Anti-Islamic ads will begin appearing on 100 New York City buses and two subway entrances next week.
But the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said no to one ad, which references “killing Jews.”
Some of the ads include an image of American journalist James Foley just before he was beheaded standing next to his masked executioner and another of Hitler.
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.
“Our organization has created this campaign in order to educate people about Jihad,” Geller told 1010 WINS. “I don’t think the truth is controversial. I think we’re entering a very dangerous period and I don’t think the American people should be disarmed in the information battle space.”
