Controversial Pro-Israel Ads to Be In Metro by Monday

The controversial, allegedly Islamophobic ads created by the American Freedom Defense Initiative must be posted in the Metro system by Monday afternoon, despite objections, according to a federal judge's ruling this afternoon.

"Everybody dance now!" declared blogger and AFDI co-founder Pamela Geller after the victory. Judge Rosemary Collyer's ruling cites the First Amendment in ruling against Metro, which had sought to hold the ads because of protests in the Middle East over the Innocence of Muslims trailer.

The ads read:

In Any War Between the Civilized Man and the Savage. Support the Civilized Man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad.

So maybe not everybody will be dancing with Geller. Her signs have already been defaced in New York, but Geller told City Desk last week that the same won't happen in the District.

    I hope this matter goes up to the Supreme Court. This is not free speech. This is hate speech. Quite frankly I believe the blogger and the American Freedom Defense Initiative has no class.

    Those of us who have ever gotten a bad reputation know that it doesn't happen by accident, there is usually a reason for it even if the reaction is hugely exaggerated. Muslims can reverse this trend by publicly refuting Jihadist ideologies and excommunicating the movement from Islam. It's up to them, the world is waiting...

    Isn't it bad enough that this nut case degraded her own family to the point they banished her to NYC and far away from the family circus. Note to Ms. Feld, or whatever name she is using now - GO AWAY STAY AWAY!

    Howard... There is absolutely nothing wrong, and everything right, with HATING the murderous savages who stump for the extinction of Israel, or who set off bombs in malls and on buses. Quite frankly I believe you may have no brain.

    In the war between shameless fame whores satisfying their need for negative attention with pointlessly provocative posters and the PC crusaders against poster injustices everywhere. Support vandals with a sense of humor. Turn this crap into something hilarious.

    Know lets se if we are going to have the same outragious free speech complaint when some one come out with an Ad exposing the continous Israel aparthied and repressive behavior toward the Palestian? I doubt it, you will hear a wail of ant-semtic complaints because as usual, as long as the conversation is pro-Israel its okay, just don't expose Israels fault, Wakeup America!
