“Judge: DC Metro must allow anti-jihad ads”–Â Wall Street JournalÂ
WASHINGTON â€” A federal judge says the D.C. transit system must allow a pro-Israel ad that equates Muslim radicals with savages.
U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer said in a one-page opinion Friday that the advertisement must be displayed no later than 5 p.m. on Monday.
The American Freedom Defense Initiative sued last month for the right to display the ads in the Metro system. Metro officials had delayed putting up the ads because of the violent reaction in the Middle East to the video the “Innocence of Muslims,” which denigrated the prophet Muhammad.
Metro spokesman Dan Stessel says the system will comply with the order and the ads will go up this weekend.
Similar ads were expected to be added Monday along the New York City subway system.
