Judge: D.C. Metro must allow anti-jihad ads

WASHINGTON — A federal judge says the D.C. transit system must allow a pro-Israel ad that equates Muslim radicals with savages.

U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer said in a one-page opinion Friday that the advertisement must be displayed no later than 5 p.m. on Monday.

The American Freedom Defense Initiative sued last month for the right to display the ads in the Metro system. Metro officials had delayed putting up the ads up because of the violent reaction in the Middle East to the video the “Innocence of Muslims,” which denigrated the prophet Muhammad. A lawyer for the group calls the decision “absolutely correct.”

Metro spokesman Dan Stessel says Metro will comply with the order and the ads will go up this weekend.
