Alternative ‘War Between the Civilized Man and the Savage’ Posters

09.25.12 Aymann Ismail & Marina Galperina

Hate-monger Pamela Geller’s notorious anti-Islamic ads went up Saturday, deflecting a largely territorial-political conflict between Israel and Palestine with a blatantly racist and religiously-inciting slogan of “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad.”

Do we have to go into that defining and mislabeling an entire population of people based on the actions of a minority is racist? No? Ok, good. So, ANIMAL made some alternative posters.

These are particularly unpleasant in today’s climate of post-9/11 hysteria and political debates turned into bombastic squawking of pseudo-politicians trying to out Muslim-bash each other. There are 10 subway stations with these posters, and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority refused to run the ads “hinting” at Palestine being the land of “savages” as “demeaning,” a U.S. District Court Judge deemed it an expression of free speech. Fine… but hopefully these alternative posters can expose Pamela Gellery’s campaign for what it is: A big joke.

Check the gallery and feel free to share the alternative posters with your internet friends.
