An important message from Pamela Geller:
AFDI has submitted a new ad campaign to the Boston MBTA in response to their ban on pro-Israel ads while allowing vicious antisemitic ads to run.
The Boston MBTA is running yet another series of Jew-hating ads, one after another, while refusing no less than three ad pro-Israel, counter-jihad campaigns from AFDI.
Today we submitted the above ad to run 100 buses. Contribute here.
Retweet and use the hashtag #MBTAbigots.
It’s not just the jihad attacks in Paris and the Muslim refugee crisis — in this age of Obama, the forces of hatred and oppression are emboldened and on the offensive everywhere. Officials all over the country are kowtowing to evil instead of standing up to it — even in unlikely places like Boston, which has just agreed to run vicious anti-Israel ads, while continuing to refuse to run our AFDI ads defending Israel and freedom.
The Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA) has long refused to our pro-Israel/anti-jihad advertisements on their buses. And now, with their acceptance of the Jew-hating ads, their bias is naked and obvious — and anti-American and anti-freedom.
The MBTA is currently running these vicious, libelous anti-Israel ads.
But they refused our pro-Israel ads:
And they refused this pro-Israel ad:
And they refused this Truth About Muhammad ad:
We are not taking this without a fight.
You would think that officials in Boston would have more sense. In the city where Islamic jihadists sowed murder and mayhem at the Marathon, the MBTA claimed our ads criticizing Islamic anti-Semitism and jihad terror were demeaning to Muslims – as if all Muslims were Jew-haters and jihadists.
Now the MBTA has compounded its moral inversion by approving and running anti-Semitic ads that include libels and lies against Israel.
It’s beyond appalling: in a city repeatedly wracked by Islamic terror attacks — the blood of its citizens stains the streets of the city — the MBTA refused to run our ads opposing jihad.
We are never going to acquiesce to this evil. AFDI vs. Boston’s Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s (MBTA)
is going to the Supreme Court. But the costs involved are astronomical. This case is far more important than what ads run or do not run: it’s a question of whether our public forums are going to be available to all people, or whether whole segments of the American public are simply going to be silenced and disenfranchised.
The MBTA has repeatedly refused to run our pro-Israel ads, which we submitted in response to vicious anti-Israel ads. This is just the latest in a number of antisemitic ad campaigns. We are fighting the MBTA in the courts. We have filed a cert petition to SCOTUS (attached). Imagine, the city of the Boston jihad bombings refusing to run anti-jihad ads. Despicable.
We can’t stand for free speech without the help of free citizens. Please help.
