"Fresh off a legal victory in New York that allowed anti-Arab, anti-Muslim ads to go up on city buses, the nation's leading anti-Muslim activist, Pamela Geller, has brought the offensive message to San Francisco. The ads, which were rejected in New York by the Metropolitan Transit Authority before a judge ruled that the decision violated free speech rights, send a strident pro-Israel message. They read: "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man." Then, between two Jewish Stars of David, the ad reads: "Support Israel. Defeat Jihad." The initial MTA decision in New York to reject the ads were because they "violated [the MTA's] prohibition on ads that demeaned individuals or groups on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin and five other specific categories," according to the New York Times...".* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

If she was in Sweden she would have a point.
Free Palestine
Thanks for that :) Wish we had people like that here in Australia. Australia needs to wake up...
POLITICAL? People killed because of a drawing, People killed because of those who burn a book, people killed because of a stupid movie about the prophet. That's not political.... 
Seen enough to know that Muslim do indeed get offended by petty things and kill for those things. History of Islam clearly shows they are not a religion of peace.
Well I am intrested to know more about it :)
Nonsense, there is plenty of proof out there that Islam is violent and still is today. Colonial and the industrial age flourished my society. 
Wahabbis sure do, and I'm kind of speculating about the Muslim Brotherhood, since one of them is in control of Egypt now.
I completely understand your point in your comment. But I can kind of understand why people see it as a "race" issue (even though I'm like you and don't believe Islam is a race but whatever). I think their argument is the fact that in America if someone were to put up signs all over NYC supporting women to leave Christianity I imagine that all the Michelle Bachman's and Rick Santorum's in the world would be PISSED and claim that it's a direct attack against Christianity & therefore America.
