Lawsuit forces Chicago to accept anti-jihad bus ads
by Neil Munro
The Chicago Transit Authority has agreed to display plain-spoken anti-jihad ads on city buses, following a lawsuit by the American Freedom Law Center.
City officials initially rejected the American Freedom Defense Initiative's anti-jihad ads, even after the city accepted bus ads that advertized a sanitized portrayal of jihad as exercise and education rather than warfare.
The center's new anti-jihad ads are "morally reprehensible — advocating racism, hatred and intolerance of cultural diversity," said a Feb. 4 letter from Karen Seimetz, the general counsel of the city's bus authority.
