Groups respond to 'savage' jihad subway ads with countercampaigns

Date: October 5, 2012

On Monday, two more anti- “savage” ads will go up in the same stations as AFDI’s ads.

Rabbis for Human Rights-North America and the Christian group Sojourners have both bought signs.

In addition, Rabbis for Human Rights also bought 10 spots at other stations, said executive director Rabbi Jill Jacobs.

Its ad reads, “In the choice between love and hate, choose love.”

“We wanted to make it clear that the message from the Jewish community was we value diversity,” she said. “Whenever we see bigotry or racist language against anyone, we have a responsibility to speak out, especially when it tries to be in our name.”

The Sojourners ad will say, “Love your Muslim neighbors.”
