A federal judge has ordered the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Agency to begin displaying controversial advertisements beginning Monday in Washington DC, The Washington Post reported on Saturday.

The decision came last Friday in a one-page opinion piece by US District Judge Rosemary Collyer, granting an injunction to the American Freedom Defense Initiative that sought to force Metro to display provocative posters in four stations, the Post reported.

The posters will say: "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man," the ad reads. "Support Israel/Defeat Jihad."
