‘Killing Jews is Worship’ posters will soon appear on NYC subways and buses

New Yorkers are used to aggressive advertising. Banners for breast implants. Billboards for condoms. But a federal judge’s ruling has opened the door for far more controversial posters on buses and subways across the city.

“Killing Jews is Worship that draws us close to Allah,” reads one such ad next to the image of a young man in a checkered headscarf. “That’s His Jihad. What’s yours?”

The poster is at the center of heated legal debate over public safety and free speech. On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge John Koeltl ruled that New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) cannot stop the controversial ad from running on scores of subway cars and buses.

This is way over the top. A very sick and disgusting controversy that demonstrates the depth of depravity this democracy and nation has sunk to. What is wrong with us because we know this is wrong so why agitate or promote hatred?? If this is allowed to stand then many of us feel that America will suffer further consequences of brutal violence and bloodshed. WAKE UP AMERICA AND DO THE RIGHT THING!!!

I thought terroristic threatening was deemed unlawful. If this ain't it, nothing is.

....der, 1131, the same ad campaigns have been going on for months and months in San Fran and Chicago with no backlash.

It's free speech, and is just illustrating the truth of Islamic terrorists.

This is like cooking a frog. The Germans did the same thing slowly introducing hatred into the everyday conversation until it was not thought of as out of place. We have been at this point for sometime. Now comes the outright directive that killing is not only okay but its beneficial and state sponsored.

I hope that those buses are defiled and/or set on fire.

You people realize these ads are by a Jewish group taunting Muslims right? I suppose it could be called sarcasm and sarcasm is very hard to get across in print. In neither case I don't approve.
