NYC Subway Ad Debuts: “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man”

The New York Times is very, very worried about upsetting the mostly peaceful Muslims.

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.

We’re sure they’ll have no problem with the ads being defaced.

    Doesn’t the MTA’s and NYT’s apprehensive reaction prove her point? The people who would react violently to this message are in fact savages.
