[Location: New York] [Source: AP, American Freedom Defense Initiative [VO: subway, ad, interviews] AN ANTI-ISLAMIC BLOGGER HAS WON A FEDERAL LAWSUIT TO PUT UP ADS IN THE NEW YORK CITY SUBWAY SYSTEM. THE ADS WILL BE GO UP MONDAY AT TEN SUBWAY STATIONS. THEY READ: "IN ANY WAR BETWEEN THE CIVILIZED MAN AND THE SAVAGE, SUPPORT THE CIVILIZED MAN, SUPPORT ISRAEL, DEFEAT JIHAD." TO PLACE THE SUBWAY ADS, BLOGGER PAMELA GELLER FOUGHT A YEAR LONG LAWSUIT AGAINST THE MTA, THE STATE AGENCY THAT RUNS MASS TRANSPORTATION IN NEW YORK CITY. [SOT/Pamela Geller, Anti-Islamic Blogger] The ad was rejected and I sued and won on all counts on my first amendment rights." [Location: Benghazi, Libya] THE ADS COME AS TENSIONS ARE FLARING OVERSEAS OVER AN OBSCURE, OFFENSIVE, ANTI-ISLAM FILM ON YOU TUBE. US AMBASSADOR TO LIBYA CHRISTOPHER STEVENS AND THREE OTHERS WERE KILLED EARLIER THIS MONTH DURING RIOTING OVER THAT VIDEO. [SOT/Pamela Geller, Anti-Islamic Blogger] "I will not sacrifice my freedom so as not to offend savages. When is a good time? I mean when I wanted to run it, it wasn't a good time. It's never a good time. If it's not an ad it's a film, if it's not a film it's a Teddy Bear, if it's not a Teddy Bear, it's a Danish cartoon, or a Swedish cartoon, or a French cartoon. When is a good time to speak openly and candidly about Jihad?" [TAKE FULL SCREEN] IN A STATEMENT, MTA SPOKESMAN AARON DONOVAN SAID, QUOTE, "OUR HANDS ARE TIED, THE MTA IS SUBJECT TO A COURT ORDERED INJUNCTION…AND….THE MTA IS REQUIRED TO RUN THE AD." MUNEER AWAD IS AN ADVOCATE FOR THE ISLAMIC COMMUNITY. [SOT/ Muneer Awad, The Council on American Islamic Relations] "There is a freedom of speech in America and everyone has the freedom of speech and this woman and her organization, we recognize their right to be racist, we recognize their rights to be bigots, but we also recognize the responsibility of New Yorkers to stand up to that bigotry." HE SAYS THE ADS EXPLOIT ISRAEL. [SOT/ Muneer Awad, The Council on American Islamic Relations] "We want to make New Yorkers realize that although this ad says Support Israel, it has nothing to do with Israel at all and it doesn't reflect the concerns of Jewish people either. THE ADS FIRST WENT UP OVER THE SUMMER ON BUSES IN SAN FRANCISCO. GELLER SAYS SHE IS IN THE PROCESS OF SUING THE WASHINGTON TRANSIT AUTHORITY TO PUT UP THE SAME ADVERTISEMENTS ON WASHINGTON DC METRO TRANSIT PLATFORMS.
