MTA Posts Anti-Jihad Ads At 10 Subway Stations


An advertisement that reads "Support Israel. Defeat Jihad" went on display in 10 New York City subway stations.

The ads, which also read “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man," were posted Monday in accordance with a U.S. District Court ruling in July that ordered the city's Metropolitan Transportation Authority to run the ads. The MTA had argued that the ad violates its policy against demeaning language.

‘Spread Hummus, Not Hate’ Campaign Unites Muslims, Jews


WASHINGTON (RNS) A small band of Jews and Muslims marched through one of the city’s busiest squares Tuesday (Oct. 14) shouting “Spread Hummus! Not Hate!” and trying to draw the attention of an otherwise blase group of workers lined up at food trucks.
Many in the lunchtime crowd kept their earbuds firmly in their ears or continued chatting with their co-workers. But a few people joined in to sing “Salaam, Shalom,” a tune with the words for peace in Arabic and Hebrew, or to pen a comment on the side of the “#SpreadHummusNotHate” bus.

Special To The Jewish Week

We write as rabbis devoted both to our faith community and to human rights for all peoples.  We were disheartened to learn that the Great Neck Synagogue has invited Pamela Geller to speak on April 14. Geller has a long track record of hateful and virulently anti-Muslim views that seek to divide American Muslims and Jews, rather than unite them.

Special To The Jewish Week

 Pamela Geller had had enough.

The right-wing blogger, whose vehement opposition to the planned Islamic community center near Ground Zero (a “mega-mosque” in her parlance) has earned Geller national headlines, rose from her seat at a Midtown diner last week and, fed up with the line of questioning, stormed out of a Jewish Week interview.

“Shame on you,” she shouted, “shame on you. Stop slamming the good guys.”

A journalist’s offense? Asking questions about her accuracy and her red-meat rhetoric.
