New York: Another set of inflammatory ads have gone up in 39 New York City subway stations, paid for by the same group that posted ads equating Muslims or Palestinians with savages last year.
According to US media reports, the American Freedom Defense Initiative purchased space next to 228 clocks in 39 stations for the ads, which have an image of the twin towers burning and a quote attributed to the Quran saying: “Soon shall we cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers.”
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said that the ads went up Monday and will run for a month.
The same group paid for ads to be displayed in 10 stations in September. Those ads implied enemies of Israel are “savages.”
The MTA also sold space last year to competing advertisements that urged tolerance.
