Re: Ad about "Killing Jews"

This ad was initially planned as one of a series, probably the most provocative in that series, that the American Freedom Defense Initiative was to post. Similar ads have run in other cities. The ad was initially rejected by the NY MTA, and the group sued, with the Federal judge's decision coming down on the side of free speech. The NYT has been covering their activities, and ran a piece on this decision on April 21st.

DISCUSSION: The "killing Jews" ad on buses and subways in New York City

I assume that people here know (although I had to do some searching myself) that the "American Freedom Defense Initiative" is an aka of "Stop Islamization of America (SIOA)"--Pam Geller et al. The Southern Poverty Law Center lists it as a hate group.
