Philly Buses Carry Ads Showing Hitler With Arab Leader

After a legal battle, a judge ordered the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority to accept ads claiming that the Quran is anti-Semitic. The ads, which were designed by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, feature a picture of Adolph Hitler with the former Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini. In large text it says, “Islamic Jew-Hatred: It’s in the Quran. Two thirds of all US aid goes to Islamic countries. Stop the Hate. End all aid to Islamic countries."

The ads have received widespread criticism but a federal judge ruled that the transportation authority could not refuse them.
