Pamela Geller has opted to continue her anti-Muslim campaign in a new advertisement that she has submitted to the Washington Metro Transit Authority. The new ad, funded by her American Freedom Defense Initiative, depicts the World Trade Center during the September 11, 2001 attacks, alongside a verse from the Quran: “Soon shall we cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers.”
Pamela Geller: Citing the Quran, are we? I think that?s a grand idea. AFDI is launching a new ad campaign much like Hamas-CAIR?s. Here is the ad we have submitted to WMATA. I want to thank Hamas-CAIR. What a wonderful way to educate millions of Americans on what is that book. We hope to feature all of the verses that call for jihad.
Geller?s new ad is in direct response to an ad launched by the Council on Islamic-American Relations (CAIR).
While counter-ads have been posted in response to Geller?s ?savages? ad in New York City as well, D.C. is the first city to earn a response by the AFDI to these groups? rebuttal.
Metro officials said they will likely be put up due to the U.S. District Court’s recent decision allowing such advertisements.
