    Two religious groups will hang subway ads urging tolerance alongside anti-jihad advertisements that went up last month.     

    The ads by Rabbis for Human Rights -- North America and the Christian group Sojourners will go up Monday.     

    They'll hang in the 10 Manhattan subway stations where the anti-jihad ads implying enemies of Israel are "savages'' appear, according to The New York Times.     

    The Rabbis' ad says "In the choice between love and hate, choose love. Help stop bigotry against our Muslim neighbors.''     

    The Christian ad states: "Love your Muslim neighbors.''     

    On Wednesday, another group, United Methodist Women, placed pro-Muslim ads in the subway. They say: "Hate speech is not civilized.''     

    The American Freedom Defense Initiative is behind the anti-jihad ads. It didn't respond to requests for comment on the new ads.
