MTA Rejects Pro-Israel Subway Ads Calling Terrorists ‘Savages’


israel-mta-adsNY – The MTA has rejected a proposed bus and subway ad calling Israel’s enemies “savages.”

Anti-Muslim firebrand Pamela Geller earlier this month submitted the poster in response to ads in 18 stations urging the US end military support to Israel.

Geller’s proposed advertisement states: “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat jihad.”

CBS Outdoor, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s media management company, wrote Geller her proposed ad violates authority standards.

It’s unacceptable because it “demeans an individual or group of individuals,” a CBS executive wrote Geller.

CBS Outdoor is willing to discuss possible revisions to the text, or Geller can request a “formal and final determination,” the executive wrote last week.

Geller previously said she would sue, claiming a failure to run the piece would violate the First Amendment.
The ad from Pamela Geller rejected by the MTA.

The MTA will post a pro-Israel ad submitted by another organization, officials said.

It will begin a 30-day run at the end of the month in the same 18 stations where the military-aid message are installed.

  1. Use the word ‘Terrorist’ instead of ‘Savage’.

    Activism is a needed mode of survival for Jews today in addition to our ‘Tshuva, tefillah and tzedakah’.

  2. they can put up those signs in the subway about cutting aid to Israel, but this they can’t?
    They are really in the dark. Some are just ignorant, and some are really antisemites.
