Speaking Truth to Savagery

by Abby Zimet

Following a court battle, those flamingly anti-Islam ads from Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative (sic) - the ones touting "savages vs. civilized man" - went up in New York subway stations this week. It didn't take long for residents to say what they thought of them. At last report, seven have gotten a welcome, truth-telling makeover and Twitter is abuzz. You gotta love New Yorkers.

"In New York we speak 140 languages, and hate isn't one of them."

Update: Egyptian-American journalist Mona Eltahawy and four others were arrested for "defacing/correcting" the posters by declaring them hate speech.
