NY bans political ads on transit after judge okays pro-Israel poster by Pam Geller

NEW YORK (AP) — The US’s largest mass transit system is preparing to ban all political advertising on its subways and buses after a judge ruled that a pro-Israel group was allowed to display an advertisement containing the phrase “Hamas Killing Jews” on New York City buses.

The resolution is expected to pass Wednesday at the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s board meeting after the finance committee approved it earlier in the week.

    Oh, so Islam is a political movement after all?

      You just know that their definition of political will be highly suspect and many that are “public service” announcements will be allowed. Plus, almost all advertizing has political messaging in it anyway, whether it is overtly acknowledged or not.

    So the MTA supports Hamas brutally murdering gays and using children and women as suicide-bombers????? The MTA sides with the hamas-Linked CAIR that’s wants the USA to an islamic State run by sharia law ???

    Wow , but I’m not totally shocked because here in Toronto just after 5 muslim women in Ontario were honour-killed for not wearing the Hijab we saw the Toronto Police run a New release Video that they will allow the Hijab for Officers to meet their Diversity Quota for muslim females.
    Seems like the TPSB thinks that only a true muslims women wears the Hijab and those 5 women killed deserved it for offending allah.
