AFDI is in the news again this week. The Pennsylvania Transit Authority called a press conference Thursday and announced THEY WILL NOT APPEAL OUR WIN.
Our ads of truth will hit the Philadelphia streets this week.
PHILLY: Last week, my human rights organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), scored another major free speech victory in Philadelphia. The court ruled that our ads highlighting Islamic Jew-hatred and the Nazi-Islamic alliance, which had been previously denied, could not be prohibited. The judge ruled they had to run.
The AFDI Draw Muhammad Contest: Announcing the People’s Choice Award, By Pamela Geller, Breitbart, March 25, 2015
Last month, the American Freedom Defense Initiative announced its first annual American Freedom Defense Initiative Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest, to be held on May 3 in the Dallas area to show that we will defend free speech and not give in to violent intimidation.
Now, in light of the huge number of submissions of Muhammad cartoons that we have received, we have decided to give a second prize: the People’s Choice Award.
Reuters weighs in and consults Hamas in America -- CAIR. CAIR gets more publicity from our work than anything else they do. Always terror-tied CAIR is mentioned with none of the convictions, jihad terror ties or their co-conspirator designation in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation's history. The media unabashedly aligns with the jihad force. Further, they site the the purely subjective, partisan smear machine, the radical left Southern Poverty Law Center, a dangerous group that few take seriously outside of hard left circles. Why doesn't Reuters mention that SPLC members have targeted for assassination people and orgs they don't like. SPLC has never named any jihadi group as a hate group, but they listed Ben Carson (not Louis Farrakhan, but Carson) as a bigot. And this is the "expert" opinion the media goes to every time to describe us? The media goes to extraordinary lengths to smear, defame and destroy us, while scrubbing cretins and real hatemongers like Ibrahim Hooper. We have made history more than once in the defense of free speech, and we are the bad guys? These lemmings should be thanking us.
Here's the statement from our supreme legal team, notably, "“Across the country, we have successfully litigated cases where government transit authorities permit the Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations to run ads misleading the public about Jihad and Islamic Jew hatred. When our clients run ads exposing this Jew hatred, all of a sudden the transit authorities are worried about the ‘tone’ of the conversation and attempt to shut it down. A word of advice to government bureaucrats doing the Muslim Brotherhood’s bidding: we will sue you and you will lose. Act accordingly.”
"U.S. Muslims group's newest Jew-hating ad," by Pamela Geller, WND, March 1, 2015:
They are at it again. But so are we.
The Islamic supremacist group American Muslims for Palestine, or AMP, is yet again libeling Israel and calling for it to be thrown to the jihadi wolves. And my organization, the human rights advocacy group American Freedom Defense Initiative, or AFDI, is once again countering them every step of the way.
The AMP ad pictures Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu holding a sign, and it quotes Netanyahu, “America is a thing you can move very easily,” and adds: “Stop the disrespect – End US Aid to Israel.”
"AFDI Rolls Out Ad Campaign to Expose Jewish Leaders Who Fund BDS," by Pamela Geller, Breitbart, March 2, 2015:
On Sunday, I wrote, “It’s time to out the Jews who fund BDS.” And so now that is exactly what my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), is setting out to do.
We have begun a new nationwide ad campaign to expose Jewish groups and leaders who are funding Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns. It is unbelievable but true: Jews in key leadership positions in American Jewish institutions are funding and supporting the most vicious Jew-hatred campaigns; BDS (the 21st-century version of Kristallnacht) is just one of them. Our AFDI ad campaign is intended to bring public awareness to their activities and ultimately move them to stop harming the Jewish State of Israel.
The initial five ads target some of the principal Jewish organizations and philanthropists that are aiding the enemies of Israel, noting that they fund “New Israel Fund’s (BDS) Boycott, Divestment and Sanction. Stop the Jewish Destruction of Israel.” The individual ads name as BDS funders the UJA, its President Alisa Doctoroff, Carole and Saul Zabar, the Bronfman Foundation, and Edith Everett.
"Jewish Leaders Funding BDS," by Pamela Geller, Breitbart, March 1, 2015:
It’s time to out the Jews who fund BDS.
The scandal of it cannot be overstated: Jewish leaders and philanthropists, including UJA-Federation President Alisa Doctoroff; Karen R. Adler, President of the Jewish Communal Fund and JCRC Board member; David Hochberg, Carole and Saul Zabar, Sally Gottesman, Edith Everett and others are prominent donors (p.26-27) to The New Israel Fund, an organization which funds BDS and other anti-Israel initiatives.
Alisa Doctoroff hoisting cocktails with the NIF in her lavish apartment is no different from the uniformed Nazis who were invited and attended Jewish communal gatherings, and from the hope expressed by Dr. Heinrich Stahl, the Berlin Jewish community leader, for a better Nazi understanding of the Jewish situation.
