Islamophobic advertisements sponsored by the American Freedom Defense Initative (AFDI) are expected to appear next week at 10 New York subway stations after the Metropolitan Transportation Authority lost a federal court ruling to stop them, The New York Times reported on Wednesday.

The advertisement states, “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel … Defeat jihad.” The statement is wedged between two Stars of David.



The ads initially appeared in San Fransisco, and have drawn outrage from civil and human rights movements as well as legal advocates and activists.

On Tuesday, the Electronic Intifada reported that the ads in San Fransisco had been artistically altered with a with an image of a hand and a stamp with the words "HATE SPEECH."
