I would like to start a discussion regarding the apparent (to me) hang-up of conservative factions on anticommunism, with communism being associated with Jews.
H-Antisemitism encourages scholarly discussion of the history of antisemitism and makes available diverse bibliographical, research and teaching aids.
Is this really true? I haven't heard about it and I read the NYTimes several times a week. I'm about to go to New York City for the week-end. I can't believe this would be allowed, as in: You can't cry fire in a crowded movie theater...
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.
The ad reads: "Killing Jews is Worship that draws us close to Allah" and it's scheduled to be posted on buses and subways in New York City. District Judge John Koeltl ruled that the Transportation Authority cannot stop the ad, which is sponsored by the American Freedom Defense Initiative.
