Huge Win – New York Transit Authority Must Run “Support Israel Defeat Jihad” Ads

“The AFDI Ad is not only protected speech—it is core political speech. The Ad expresses AFDI’s pro-Israel perspective on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict in the Middle East, and implicitly calls for a pro-Israel U.S. foreign policy with regard to that conflict. The AFDI Ad is, further, a form of response to political ads on the same subject that have appeared in the same space.

As such, the AFDI Ad is afforded the highest level of protection under the First Amendment.” Judge Engelmayor’s ruling today.
