Bigotry against Muslims, and Jews, is nothing new.
But when the city of New York starts putting insanely bigoted ads in the subways, pleading that they are helpless and cannot refuse...well, we're halfway to an "Escape from New York" zombie apocalypse.
Here is the New York Times story on the bigoted subway ads: Ad Calling Jihad ‘Savage’ Is Set to Appear in Subway
By MATT FLEGENHEIMER September 18, 2012 As violent and sometimes deadly protests consume much of the Muslim world in response to an American-made video mocking the Prophet Muhammad, New Yorkers will soon encounter another potentially inflammatory rendering of Islam: an advertisement in the transit system that reads, “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man.” It concludes with the words, “Support Israel. Defeat Jihad,” wedged between two Stars of David. After rejecting the ads initially, then losing a federal court ruling on First Amendment grounds, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said on Tuesday that the ads were expected to appear next week at 10 subway stations. “Our hands are tied,” Aaron Donovan, a spokesman for the authority, said when asked about the timing of the ad.
Since Jewish judges (I assume - the same ones who covered for the 9/11 perps) say the First Amendment says nobody can stop anyone from putting sick, bigoted, genocidal ads in the NY subways, I expect the following ads to begin appearing soon. Top ten anti-Semitic NY subway ads
4. Jews boil Jesus Christ in excrement in their Talmud!
3. Filthy Jews make 90% of the porn - hang them from the rafters!
2. Bloodsucking Jewish usurers are killing this country.
1. The Jews want YOU to die for Israel, sucker. (There are almost no Jews serving in our armed forces.)
Wait a minute, you say. This top ten list is not funny! It's sick! How can you possibly post such disgusting stuff?
Well, yes, it's sick. But no sicker than the Islamophobic ads that are actually going up in the subway. In fact, #1 is arguably true and defensible and SHOULD be put up in every subway and beside every freeway in the land. (The others are all indefensible, and nobody in their right mind would allow them to go up in the subways.)
The Zionist anti-Islam ad blasphemes a sacred tenet of the Islamic faith, jihad (striving or effort to be a better person, and secondarily, striving or effort to defend the community and to defend truth and justice). It supports the Zionist genocide of the Palestinians. And it calls Muslims "savages."
Can you imagine a parallel ad saying the same thing about black Africans, calling for support of apartheid?! If black people rioted and burned down or blew up the whole subway system in response, who would blame them? If I were on the jury, I'd hold out for acquittal till doomsday.
None of my ten imaginary anti-Semitic subway ad ideas are even half as offensive as the actual ads that are going up. While I certainly wouldn't condone blowing up the entire NY subway system in response - maybe just the B and C trains - it would be perfectly normal and natural and predictable if that happened, just as it would be normal and natural, if unfortunate, if black people did the same thing in the hypothetical case of the parallel ad calling black Africans "savages."
I like to think that Muslims are super-human, more patient than the angels. When you prick us, we do not bleed. So maybe Muslims will not respond violently, the way black people or Jewish people would. (I guarantee the JDL would do its best to KILL everyone involved with putting up comparable anti-Jewish ads.)
Prediction: The good news is that Muslims will, as we almost always do, exercise superhuman restraint and refrain from even defacing the ads. The bad news is that the Silverstein-Mossad organized crime ring that runs NY (and did 9/11) will bomb the subways, blame the Muslims, and try to stampede the US into war with Iran.
