Pamela Geller's Ad Stays: First Amendment Wins

In spite of the fact that New York City mayor Bill Di Blasio is the most left-wing socialist the city ever had the misfortune of electing for the job, and a guy who isn't a big fan of the US Constitution when it allows someone to challenge his beliefs, the First Amendment won the day.

American Freedom Defense Initiative, headed by Pamela Geller, won a legal battle against the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and their claim that AFDI's pro-Israel ad represents hate speech. The ad will be displayed on city buses and contains the phrase "Hamas Killing Jews," which is simply taken from Hamas' statements about Jews and their actually killing Jews for religious reasons.

The ruling came on Tuesday from Judge John Koeltl. He ruled that the ad is protected speech, although he added that he was sensitive to the MTA's claim that it could incite violence [from violent Islamists for being called violent Islamists].

On the other hand, he pointed out that no violence occurred in San Francisco and Chicago in 2013 when the same ads were posted on city transit.

"Under the First Amendment, the fear of such spontaneous attacks, without more, cannot override individuals' rights to freedom of expression," Koeltl said in a ruling, and stayed the effect of the decision for 30 days so it will have the opportunity to be appealed by such terrorist-supporting, anti-Semitic, homophobic, misogynist organizations like CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) and other arms of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Adam Lisbery, the MTA spokesman and a staunch Islamic appeaser or Dhimmi, said they were disappointed with the ruling and they will be reviewing their options [hoping in the interim that the anti-anti-Semitic ads do not provoke anti-Semitic violence].

David Yerushalmi, the attorney for AFDI said the decision "sends a strong message both to government bureaucrats who would restrict our freedom of speech based upon what they perceive to be a global jihadist threat, and it also sends a telling message to our enemies abroad and at home: their threats of violence will not prevent the courts from upholding the First Amendment."

It's always laughable how upset CAIR and other sphincters of the Muslim Brotherhood get when their so-called "holy book," the Koran, is quoted word-for-word and exposes the anti-Semitism, intolerance, and overt hatred Islam has for all infidels, especially Jews. 

Vermin never like sunlight or being openly exposed. Why not quote their holy book? What are they trying to hide?
