Commuters walk by an advertisement that reads “Support Israel/Defeat Jihad” in the Times Square subway station in New York, September 24, 2012. The ad equating Islamic jihad with savagery was posted Monday in 10 New York City subway stations, even as much of the Muslim world was still seething over a California-made movie ridiculing the Prophet Mohammad. The ad, sponsored by the pro-Israel American Freedom Defense Initiative, appeared after the Metropolitan Transit Authority lost a bid to refuse to post it on the grounds that it violated the agency’s policy against demeaning language. In July, a federal judge ruled it was protected speech and ordered the MTA to place the posters. REUTERS/Brendan Mcdermid (UNITED STATES – Tags: POLITICS RELIGION CIVIL UNREST)
