An important message from Pamela Geller:
The MBTA has repeatedly refused to run our pro-Israel ads, which we submitted in response to vicious anti-Israel ads like the one they are currently running (below).
This is just the latest in a number of antisemitic ad campaigns. We are fighting the MBTA in the courts and have filed a cert petition to SCOTUS. Here’s a link to the petition: AFDI Petition for Cert(1)
Imagine, the city of the Boston jihad bombings refusing to run anti-jihad ads. Despicable.
Here are the ad the MBTA has refused to run:
They refused this too:
They also refused this one as well:
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.
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.
We can’t stand for free speech without the help of free citizens. HELP US FIGHT SHARIA ENFORCEMENT IN BOSTON. DONATE HERE.
The media doesn’t not mention once the MBTA’s prohibition on AFDI’s ads. They just paint the opposition to the anti-Israel ads as Jews whining.
Anti-Israeli ads offend MBTA riders
Pro-Israeli groups calling ads unfair
BOSTON —Political ads at an MBTA station are offending some riders and now the MBTA may be considering taking action.
The text reads Israel’s military kills one Palestinian child every three days using U.S. tax dollars.
“What we are trying to do is highlight to Americans a component of the story we think is missed,” Jake Chase-Lubitz, of the Palestine Advocacy Project, said. “That is the devastation Israel brings to the Palestinian community.”
The ads are now displayed in seven cities, including Boston. Pro-Israeli groups are calling them unfair.
“Spreading distortions and inaccuracies about a complex political situation will achieve no positive benefit,” the Jewish Community Relations Council said.
Jewish groups NewsCenter 5 spoke with say they respect the group’s right to express their opinion the MBTA is now “considering whether to amend its advertising guidelines and in the future will not accept ads concerning political issues and matters of public debate”
These Jewish groups stand with Jew-haters, but did not stand with us.
