A coalition of religious groups is calling on the Washington DC Metro to donate proceeds from an ad campaign suggesting Muslims are savages to an organization supporting human rights.
The Metro was sued by the American Freedom Defense Initiative – makers of the ad – last month, after officials delayed in putting up posters stating “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad ”, due to concerns that the posters would inflame Muslims and threaten the security of passengers.
The coalition is comprised of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim representatives.
