FEDERAL JUDGE ORDERS NY TRANSIT AUTHORITY TO DISPLAY ‘HAMAS KILLING JEWS’ AD ON BUSES

A FEDERAL JUDGE IN NY ORDERED NY’S METROPOLITAN TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY TO DISPLAY ON THEIR BUSES A VERY CONTROVERSIAL AD. THE AD REFERS TO MUSLIMS KILLING JEWS. THE JUDGE REJECTED THE ARGUMENT THAT DISPLAYING THE AD MIGHT INCITE TERRORISM OR PUT PEOPLE IN HARMS WAY.

“U.S. District Judge John Koeltl in Manhattan said the ad from the American Freedom Defense Initiative, which had previously run in Chicago and San Francisco, was protected speech under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

What’s yours?”
