Anti-jihad 'savage' ads going up in NYC subway [Pam Geller]
Associated Press ^ | 9/20/2012 | KAREN MATTHEWS

Posted on 09/20/2012 7:46:09 PM PDT by Hunton Peck

A provocative ad that equates Muslim radicals with savages is set to go up in the city's subway system as violent protests over an anti-Islamic film ridiculing the Prophet Muhammad sweep over much of the Muslim world.

A conservative blogger who once headed a campaign against an Islamic center near the Sept. 11 terror attack site won a court order to post the ad in 10 subway stations next Monday. The ad reads, "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad."

The ad was plastered on San Francisco city buses in recent weeks, prompting some artists to deface the ads and remove some of the words, including "Jihad," or holy war. The blogger, Pamela Geller, said she filed suit Thursday in the nation's capital to post the ad in Washington's transit system after officials declined to put up the ad in light of the uproar in the Middle East over the anti-Islam film.

Abdul Yasar, a New York subway rider who considers himself an observant Muslim, said Geller's ad was insensitive in an unsettling climate for Muslims.

"If you don't want to see what happened in Libya and Egypt after the video — maybe not so strong here in America — you shouldn't put this up," Yasar said.

But "if this is a free country, they have the right to do this," he said. "And then Muslims have the right to put up their own ad."

Geller, executive director of the American Freedom Defense Initiative and publisher of a blog called Atlas Shrugs, called an order by a federal judge in New York allowing the ads "a victory for the First Amendment" and said she wasn't concerned that her ad could spark protests like the ones against the depiction of...

Good for her. Sometimes you just gotta go back and review the basics.

Ever wonder what drives suicide bombers.. or are you like Maher or Mayhem whatever his name is who says that suicide bombers are heroes to their Islamist (political Islam, sharia law advocates) brethren?

Heroes? No I don't think so. Turns out it is Islamists' way of getting rid of the riffraff.

Danish psychologist Nicolai Sennels:

"Research suggests that many suicide bombers are suffering from depression, and their actions are just a socially accepted (among Muslims) way of committing suicide . . . close to ninety percent [of the suicide bombers were] suffering from severe illness such as blindness, cancer, missing limbs or leprosy. Many Muslim societies, including that of Afghanistan, have a low social acceptance of handicaps and severe illnesses . . . being physically handicapped or mentally retarded often leads to exclusion in a society like Afghanistan, and becoming a martyr might be the only chance of achieving social recognition and honour — if not just a way to end the pain of being socially isolated (which is especially traumatizing in collectivist cultures like Islam).

"Al Qaida’s use of people with Down’s syndrome might be another unpleasant side effect of the many chromosomal illnesses resulting from inbreeding between first cousins. People with low intelligence (because of inbreeding) might also be easier to brainwash with fundamentalist Islam. . . . Being an outcast due to a physical handicap, living in a country that does not manage to take care of handicapped people, suffering from physical pain following disease, or being depressed or schizophrenic, has now proved to be an important factor as well.The unhealthy culture of inbreeding in Muslim societies increases the number of Muslim martyrs who are looking for an honourable and socially and religiously accepted way out of here."

My emphasis.

So the Islamist who practice consanguineous marriages are actually factories just as we build planes and missiles to deliver bombs. Well I swan. I never expected that.

My emphasis.

I guess the ad has found it's target.

A correction to my post above, change "Turns out it is Islamists' way of getting rid of the riffraff."

It should be understood in context but I want to make it clear, Turns out it is Islamists' way of getting rid of what they consider to be riffraff.

Why would this be considered “provocative”??? IT’S TRUE! and the Right thing to do.

Sorry Abdul, but when muslim terrorists tortured, raped, and murdered the American ambassador to Libya, they qualified themselves as savage scumbags.

Bring it, Yasar... I have several hundred +P "flying ashtrays" laying around, and this is one Jew who WILL NOT go quietly into that goodnight. I will shoot back.

"In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man."

The slogan should be attributed to Ayn Rand. This is word-for-word how she replied to Donohue when asked about Israel and the middle east.

Note to yasar:

Maybe America isn’t for you. Maybe you need to go home to the shithole and its ideals that you came from.

I hope everyone caught that. An “artist” is someone who intentionally defaces other people’s property.

That’s what makes America great. Here the democrats run these people for congress.

I did catch that. It’s a bizarre sidenote to this story.

Along with so much else, language is decaying before our eyes. In this case, I’d guess it’s because of the writer’s irresistible urge to editorialize despite her effort to appear evenhanded.

I don’t see the word “Muslim” anywhere in the ad. Seems culturally sensitive to me.

It’s hard to believe how many anti-Semetic comments there are for this article. Of course, I was surprised at how many of my ESL students hated Jews - not just the Muslim students, but also the Latin American ones. From the comments, there’s also a lot of young liberal whites and blacks who hate Jews.

I’m guessing that the angry mobs won’t come near me - after the first one does, that is.
