New anti-CAIR subway ads featuring burning World Trade Center set to launch

Geller said that she hopes to make this new campaign part of an ongoing series that showcases each verse she believes calls for jihad
(Billy Hallowell) Activist and blogger Pamela Geller’s subway and bus ads likening Islamic radicals to “savages” have created quite a stir. After battles with the transit authorities in both New York City and Washington, D.C., judges have ruled in Geller’s favor, stating that her group, American Freedom Defense Initiative, has a First Amendment right to post the controversial ads. While the dust is finally settling on the initial campaign, the activist is preparing to launch another, potentially more controversial ad blitz — one that includes an image of the World Trade Center up in flames and two controversial verses from the Koran.
On Sunday, Geller shared her new poster and an explanation of its purpose (it’s a response to a new ad being put out by the Council on American-Islamic Relations) with TheBlaze. Much like Sojourners, Rabbis for Human Rights and United Methodist Women, CAIR also launched an ad decrying Geller’s anti-jihad campaign.
