Assalamualaikum wbt and peace be upon you,
When we opened our newspapers today, we saw an article about an ad which is going to be put up at the New York subway stations.The ad reads,
"IN ANY WAR BETWEEN THE CIVILIZED MAN AND THE SAVAGE, SUPPORT THE CIVILIZED MAN. SUPPORT ISRAEL. DEFEAT JIHAD."
(An excerpt from the news said) : Pamela Geller, executive director of the American Freedom Defense Initiative
and publisher of a blog called Atlas Shrugs, called an order by a
federal judge in New York allowing the ads "a victory for the First
Amendment" and said she wasn't concerned that her ad could spark
protests like the ones against the depiction of Muslims in the video
"Innocence of Muslims."
U.S. District Court Judge Paul Engelmayer ruled last month that it is protected speech under the First Amendment.Donna Lieberman, executive director of the New York Civil Liberties Union, backed publication of the "patently offensive" ads.
Geller's group has also placed ads in Metro-North Railroad stations
north of New York City that read: "It's not Islamophobia, it's
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority hadn't seen
Geller's lawsuit on Thursday, spokesman Dan Stessel said. The agency
told Geller the ad would be "deferred" because of the ongoing violence
in the Middle East, he said.
"To be clear, we have not rejected the ad," Stessel said, but "merely
asked the advertiser to be sensitive to the timing of the placement out
of a concern for public safety, given current world events."
Associated Press writers Verena Dobnik in New York and Eric Tucker in Washington contributed to this report.
Wow, please READ your history!!! The United States of America is established less than 200 years ago, while the Muslim countries all over the world have been around for thousands of years. Who is uncivilized now? Who is actually the "savage"before you became civilized? Please get your facts right, you moron!!!!!!!!!!!
My dad is supposed to go to Los Angeles this October but he has already declined. Who would want to go to a place where they'd treat you like savages. I believe that not all Americans agree to the ads but they are too weak to voice out.
To all Americans out there, it's NOT a question of TIMING, OR PLACEMENT, OR VICTORY OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT OR WHATNOT. Your Federal Court Judge decision means that humans are lawfully divided into two categories, the civilized and the savages. My mom said the American Judge has actually committed a crime against humanity and should be punished.
IT IS A QUESTION OF RESPECT TOWARDS OTHER HUMAN BEINGS.....
AND ONE MORE THING, PLEASE BURN YOUR "TO KILL A MOCKING BIRD". IT'S ALL A LIE.......MOCKING YOU IN YOUR FACE!!!....
PEOPLE HAVE BEEN MOVING FORWARD BUT I PITY THE AMERICANS BECAUSE THEY ARE MOVING BACKWARDS!!!!!!
LET THE BEST MAN WIN!
