Human Rights Group Counters Anti-Jihad Subway Ads

Last month ads went up equating all Muslims or Palestinians with savages

    The Commission of Human Rights is the latest group to counter anti-Muslim subway ads in New York City.     

    The commission plans to put up ads that tout the Big Apple's diversity. The billboard features a red apple with a map of the world that looks like bites. It reads: "From many countries, one city.''

    The New York Post reports it's expected to go up as early as next week.     

    It's in response to ads that went up last month that equate all Muslims or Palestinians with savages.     

    This week two religious groups put up anti-jihad ads in the subway urging religious tolerance and an end to bigotry.     

    The International Action Center also plans to put up ads next week that say "No to Racism & Anti-Muslim Bigotry.''
