Support Israel. Defeat Jihad Ads Set To Go Up In New York Subways: New York Times Lies To Readers

By Susan Duclos

After winning in court after the Support Israel. Defeat Jihad ads were rejected as demeaning by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Pamela Gellar, the executive director of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, plans to place the ads in question in the New York subways.

The timing could not be more relevant.

The ad states "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man," and concludes with the words, “Support Israel. Defeat Jihad,” wedged between two Stars of David.

The New York Times, showing their bias, misrepresents the ads by reporting "New Yorkers will soon encounter another potentially inflammatory rendering of Islam."

The ads do not mention Islam, they speak of Jihad and according to Merriam-Webster's dictionary definition, Jihad is defined as "a holy war waged on behalf of Islam as a religious duty; also : a personal struggle in devotion to Islam especially involving spiritual discipline."

A war, in the name of Islam, where Islamic extremists murder, defile and attack to "crusade for a principle or belief."

Gellar is quote in the NYT hit piece:

Pamela Geller, the executive director of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, said in an e-mail Tuesday that transit officials in Washington were “kowtowing to the threat of jihad terrorism.” She added that recent events in the Middle East had not given her pause “for a second” about posting the ads in New York. 

“I will never cower before violent intimidation, and stop telling the truth because doing so is dangerous,” she said. “Freedom must be vigorously defended.” 

She added, “If someone commits violence, it is his responsibility and no one else’s.”

Gellar also explains in more detail at her website, Atlas Shrugs and takes the NYT to the cleaners, so to speak, for misleading their readers.

It is precisely because of the current political situation that it is important that I be able to express my message now, and I consider any delay to be government censorship of my core political speech. I demanded that the transit authority change their position. Short of that, we will file a lawsuit tomorrow.

Clearly, DC is kowtowing to the threat of jihad terrorism. Their cowardice does not make commuters or Americans safer. On the contrary, it puts us in more peril to the whims of violent Islamic supremacists.

If someone commits violence, it is his responsibility and no one else's. The responsibility for one's actions lies with one who acts and no one else. Islamic supremacists and their allies in the mainstream media are trying to get us to accept the idea that we are responsible if Muslims riot and kill and blame what we say. Yet there is nothing that you could say to me that would make me riot and kill. Theirs is the responsibility and they are the only ones who deserve condemnation, if the media were doing its job.

There will always be an ad, a movie, a cartoon, a teddy bear. This is a war on freedom. I refuse to sacrifice my freedom so as not to offend savages.

And dhimmi DC transit is not alone. Others have criticized the use of the word "savage." But it is entirely apt. They claim that the ad refers to all Muslims, or all opponents of Israel. It doesn't. It refers to those who rejoice in the murders of innocent civilians. The war on Israel is a war on innocent civilians. The targeting of civilians is savage. The murder of Ambassador Stevens was savage. The relentless 60-year campaign of terror against the Jewish people is savage. The torture of hostage Gilad Shalit was savage. The bloody hacking to death of the Fogel family was savage. The Munich Olympic massacre was savage. The unspeakable torture of Ehud Goldwasser was savage. The tens of thousands of rockets fired from Gaza into southern Israel (into schools, homes, etc.) are savage. The vicious Jew-hatred behind this genocide is savage. The endless demonization of the Jewish people in the Palestinian and Arab media is savage. The refusal to recognize the state of Israel as a Jewish state is savage. The list is endless.

 Emphasis mine.

Kudos to Gellar for standing up, speaking out and fighting the fight on behalf of us all and shame on the New York Times for making themselves even more irrelevant than they already are by lying to their readers.
