Geller had to go to court to get municipal authorities to put her anti-jihad ads up in buses and trains.
Now, they are vandalized and come with a municipal 'disclaimer" - though anti-Israel ads that have been run - without question and without lawsuits - by the same cities never have been.
Geller spells out the double standard and the dhimmitude that's becoming a pervasive part of our "multiculturalism" society.
America's Oriana Fallaci - Pamela Geller, interviewed in FRONT PAGE MAGAZINE:
Geller: ... why was there no comparable brouhaha when two vicious anti-Israel ads ran – nothing like the reaction there has been over a statement of real fact? There was no concern in the media about “hate speech” and incitement to violence against Jews by those dishonest messages. The actual story here is the systemic and institutionalized bias in the media.
FP: And what is happening in San Francisco?
Geller: In an unprecedented move, the city of San Francisco is placing ads right next to every one of our pro-Israel ads on San Francisco Muni buses, saying (according to ABC 7 San Francisco): “Muni condemns statements that describe any group as savages.”
FP: I have never heard of that happening before. Is it common for an advertiser to place counter-ads next to an ad it has accepted?
Geller: No, Jamie, this is unprecedented in the history of outdoor advertising. This is the manifestation of Sharia in Western society. Any war on innocent civilians is savage. Here again, they are reading the idea that “all Muslims” or “all Arabs” want to destroy Israel into my ad. That is nowhere in my message. They are the Islamophobes and racists.
The rush to assure the world that the “Palestinian” jihadists are not savages amazes me. The war on Israel is a war on innocent civilians. The targeting of civilians is savage. The relentless 60-year campaign of terror against the Jewish people is savage. The torture of hostage Gilad Shalit was savage. The bloody hacking to death of the Fogel family was savage. The Munich Olympic massacre was savage. The unspeakable torture of Ehud Goldwasser was savage. The tens of thousands of rockets fired from Gaza into southern Israel (into schools, homes, etc.) are savage. The vicious Jew-hatred behind this genocide is savage. The endless demonization of the Jewish people in the Palestinian and Arab media is savage. The refusal to recognize the state of Israel as a Jewish state is savage. The list is endless.
But what galls me here again are the scores of anti-Israel ads that ran in San Francisco without a disclaimer. Why didn’t they have a problem with the anti-Jewish ads? Why did they not run this disclaimer next to those ads? That silence is sanction and tacit approval. Institutionalized anti-Semitism. Who cares if MUNI approves the message or not? It is not their job to agree or disagree.
The truth is not offensive.
The millions slaughtered in jihad – that is offensive to free men.RIGHT ON!
