NY transit agency may change rule to block 'Killing Jews' ad| Reuters

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Stung by a court ruling that would force it to run a controversial ad from an anti-Muslim group on its buses, New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority may adopt a new policy that could let it ban the ad after all. In a letter submitted on Friday to U.S. District Judge John Koeltl in Manhattan, an MTA lawyer said the agency's board plans on April 29 to vote on a proposal to adopt a new advertising policy that would transform MTA property into a "limited public forum," enabling the agency to exclude "all advertisements of a political nature." The MTA believes such a policy would allow it to ban an ad from the American Freedom Defense Initiative, portraying a man wearing a scarf around his face, with a quotation "Killing Jews is Worship that draws us close to Allah" attributed to "Hamas MTV," and below that, "That's His Jihad #Business #Economy #United States #India #Technology #France #Middle East #Argentina #Entertainment #Mexico #opinion #lifestyle
