Battling for free speech in New York
Last Tuesday, in the shadow of the site where the World Trade Center towers once stood, freedom's A Team gathered to fight not for the Second, or for the Eighth, or for the 10th, but for the First Amendment. Robert Spencer, David Yerushalmi, Robert Muise and I converged upon the United States Courthouse to battle the neanderthals of the New York City Metropolitan Transit Authority. The deliberations took four hours.
We filed a lawsuit against the MTA to combat Jew-hatred in the city's subways. Jew-haters can run ads suggesting that Israel's self-defense is the obstacle to "peace" and that U.S. military aid to Israel also acts as an impediment to peace between the Israelis and Palestinians. The anti-Israel ad blames Israel, its military and U.S. military aid to Israel as the cause of Palestinian terror directed against innocent civilians in Israel and abroad.
Jeffrey Rosen, director of real estate for the MTA, admitted that the decision to reject our AFDI pro-Israel ad – and he called it the pro-Israel ad – laid solely with him. This member of the tribe eagerly accepted an anti-Israel ad calling for the end of U.S. aid to Israel, in his view because it was a strategy for peace. What it is in reality is a Final Solution for the elimination of Israel. But this self-important jackass knows better than everybody.
