Muslim parody posters banned by MTA are not political ads, judge says
by Dan Rivoli and Stephen Rex Brown
A humorous "The Muslims Are Coming!" poster campaign banned by the MTA in the wake of a related fight over Islamophobic ads is a violation of its own rules, a judge ruled Wednesday.
The ads, commissioned by comedians Dean Obeidallah and Negin Farsad, featured lines like "The ugly truth about Muslims: Muslims have great frittata recipes."
The ads were bought in response to conservative provocateur Pamela Geller's anti-Islam advertisements, which prompted the MTA to change its policy and ban "political" ads in April.
