Philly Buses Ordered To Accept Ads Featuring Hitler YM”S


septaPhiladelphia’s transit system has been ordered to accept provocative ads that include a 1941 photograph of Adolf Hitler with a former Arab leader after a federal judge ruled in favor of a pro-Israel group’s free-speech lawsuit.

The proposed bus ads carry a tagline saying: “Jew Hatred: It’s in the Quran.”

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority believes the ads violate its standards and will consider an appeal. The Philadelphia Inquirer first reported on Wednesday’s ruling by U.S. District Judge Mitchell Goldberg.

The ad in question features a photograph of a 1941 meeting between Adolf Hitler and supporter Hajj Amin al-Husseini, a Palestinian Arab nationalist.

The ads are produced by the American Freedom Defense Initiative. The group opposes U.S. aid to Islamic countries and has filed a similar lawsuit in New York.



  1. This is anti Semitism at it’s best, don’t be fooled by the “freedom of speech” mask. An unbiased judge would never pass such a law, freedom of the speech doesn’t allow Isis to spread it’s fanatical views, why is the Hitler ideology different?

  2. The add is right on. The connection between Islam and Nazism must be exposed. Both ideologies are based on exterminating Jewish People (HS) and total world domination.

  3. i completely agree with the point of the ad:raising awareness about anti-semitism but this will most likely backfire with muslim groups putting up their own ads and things like that

  4. The add will be very effective but only for people who know who both of them are. Many Americans won’t recognize Hitler, and almost none will recognize “the mufti” (al-Husseini). Quoting the Koran might not be such a good idea, since the Christian’s scriptures are also very anti-Jewish, and reminding people of that isn’t in our interests.

    It will also invite a debate on the role of the Arabs in WWII – and that doesn’t necessarily help Israel (most either helped the Allies or remained neutral even though they had been conquered by the British or French and allying with Hitler would have helped them throw out the imperialists). Jews in Arab countries under German occupation had a much greater chance of survival than Jews in Europe (even after the Germans decided to declare the Arabs to be honorary Aryans). King Abdullah (the current Jordanian king’s great-grandfather) could have easily asked the Germans to get rid of the Brits from Eretz Yisrael (and German forces were quite close) but instead supported the British at a time when it made a difference and the outcome of the war was in doubt.

  5. DOREISH EMES – Read the article again. You very obviously didn’ read it properly. It is not anti-semitism (Although It may not be a favorable way to spread a message.)
    MoisheInGolus – You are right, but take into account what “rew” commented. It could very well fire back.

  6. MosheinGolus,

    One could make the same argument for Christianity and Nazism. However, right now, Christianity is not exercising those parts of its ideology. Therefore, be clear. You are not suggesting that the connection be exposed because there is a connection but rather, because Muslims are acting out that connection and the parts of their ideology that are related to it.

    Now if I can make this observation, so can the Muslims and the Christians. If your only case for the ad being right on is the ideology as found in their texts, realize that their texts don’t contain it from cover to cover. It is found here and there. That said, the same case can be made for Judaism and Nazism. Judaism also has it in for certain people and speaks about their obliteration here and there. It will be easy for some Christian or Muslim scholar to suggest a connection between Judaism and Nazism. The fact that some influential Jews collaborated with the Nazis will fuel this connection.

    Will you feel comfortable with an advertisement, protected by free speech, that says “Gentile Hatred-It’s in the Torah”?

  7. This will likely arose anti Semitism. Stay tuned for ads listing every derogatory statement about goyim in the gemara. Unwise, in my opinion. Is this group Jewish or Christian?

  8. To Rainus

    Before you comment on Muslim texts, please educate yourself on what Muslim texts actually say. It is very hard to take it out of context. You probably will do yourself a favor by studding bloody history of Islam, about their first genocide commuted against Jewish people of Arabia. About Nazi origins in Islam you can start with:

    And please, stop your moral equivalency about comparing Jewish writing regarding Xrtians and Muslims, unless you refer to Protocols of Elders of Zion.

  9. To all of you who say “This could fire back” you remind me two Yiden in a sad joke about the Holocaust: In a cattle car on the way to Auschwitz one Jew asks Nazi guard for a cup of water. Another angry Jew shouts at him saying: you fool, stop making trouble, you want all of us to get killed?

    How much this can “backfire” when they are already murdering us in kosher markets and in front of synagogues in Europe?

    This Islamic cancer should be dealt with now before it becomes too late.
