Anti-American Group Moves Ahead With Anti-Mosque Ads

08.10.10 Bucky Turco

To avoid a lawsuit with a radical right wing group that hates American diversity and is hoping to stoke a modern day Crusade against Islam, the MTA agreed to allow this ad opposing the construction of a Muslim cultural center near Ground Zero that features some controversial imagery and all sorts of inaccuracies: 1) It’s not a “mega mosque.” 2) It’s not located at the World Trade Center site. 3) It’s not scheduled to open on September 11, 2011. 4) It’s not going to have a Star and Crescent branded on its facade. 5) It’s not connected to the 9/11 attacks. Other than that…totally accurate.
