Sure, I get Freedom of Speech and all that, but there's already enough intolerance here without people being reminded by the transit system.

When did Jews become their own race? Anti-semitism isn't a racial issue, it's a cultural one. What genius thought up this ad? Lol

Wow what the hell. Is that on a SEPTA bus? Because if so I'd rather walk. Unfortunately, that kind of protest isn't sensible for many who rely on transit every day.

Apparently your town isn't the first. Looks like they were in DC in 2014. And they are paid for Pamela Geller? I don't know who she is.

Sounds like she thinks she is doing the right thing, just by what little I read.
I'll have to go read more.

DC ads were paid for by a group led by Geller apparently

Why is Philadelphia called the City of Brotherly Love again? Let's hope the locals can meet the challenge to not bite at inciting ads.

Philly truly is an awesome city, with much of it's richness coming from the many cultures represented in the population. Alienating one of them alienates all of us.

Actually, I just rethought this. The ad itself has an islamophobic tone, but it's supposed to be eye opening and stimulate conversation. This strikes me as fighting fire with fire though, I'm not certain it's constructive at all.

Well at least they're on the right track. I say end all U.S aid to everyone,to hell with you cretins.

We have ads like these in NY. I'll assume the blatant call for intolerance is allowed because they're, you know, Jews.

Yep. In fact the ads are on 80+ buses here. SEPTA stands for Swindling Every Person Tagging Along. Luckily I take the train, not a bus.

Didn't Bruce Springsteen write a song about this?

I was taken aback, I didn't know what I felt

I was silently cursing to myself

The buses passed and the ads still remained

blinding those who's fears are well ingrained

On the streets of Philadelphia...

I wouldn't pin this on all Jews in the area though. The ads are denounced by Jacob Bender, who is the Jewish executive director of the American Council on Islamic Relations.

“These ads are despicable and false, but fall under First Amendment protections,” Jacob Bender, CAIR-Philadelphia Executive Director said.

It is in the Koran, quite plainly, muslims to kill Jews wherever they come across them, what is all the fuss about the truth?
Sharia law stipulates to kill Jews, also to kill your wife if she brings 'dishonour' to the husband, what is up with you people?
Do you read and watch the news at all? try 'atlas shrugs' 'rantburg' 'jihad watch' 'France 24' to name a few non MSN news outlets.
There photos of Hamas troops and other ethic armies giving the 'hitler' salute, that's Okay?

Yes, we are well aware where and when it was written. The point is, is it necessary for a third rate public transit system to proclaim it in this day and age? Don't we have enough going on with Indiana, ISIS, Israel-Palestinians, etc. to keep everyone's bigotry focused?

Scary the post saying what is wrong with the 'truth' is the one that gets the most stars so far...

This poster had no basis in truth what so ever.


All three of the big three religious books call for killing of non believer's and fellow man for acts that don't follow what the book say.
