Here’s the thing — the media and various groups representing yesterday’s men are floored by the image of Hitler, but why aren’t they just as floored by the Muslim Hitler, the Mufti al-Husseini? He is as monstrous a historical figure as Hitler, and yet he elicits little to no reaction — further proof of the scrubbing of jihad and Islamic jihad from the pages of history. Al-Husseini should be just as widely recognized as the Nazi that he is as Hitler or Mussolini is. But Islam has been scrubbed from WWII history, just as Islamic supremacists are trying to scrub jihad from the 911 Memorial and Museum. Same thing.
“Right wing group” — that’s what an organization that advocates for individual rights is called. Note the description, “anti-Muslim” group. The media is implying that all Muslims are Jew haters — oh, the islamophobia!
Anti-Muslim group sparks controversy by posting ads featuring Hitler on Washington, D.C. buses
The American Freedom Defense Initiative, a group led by right-wing blogger Pamela Geller, paid for the controversial ads. The campaign will run on 20 buses in the nation’s capital for about a month.

The right-wing group that once posted fiery anti-Muslim ads in New York City’s subways is at it again—this time in Washington, D.C.
For the next few weeks, straphangers in the nation’s capital will be greeted by Adolf Hitler during their morning commutes, thanks to a controversial new ad campaign that plastered a photo of the Nazi leader onto the sides of 20 D.C. buses.
The American Freedom Defense Initiative’s 15-foot ads show Hitler talking to Haj Amin al-Husseini, the grand mufti of Jerusalem who teamed up with the Nazis in an attempt to try to drive Jews out of Palestine. Al-Hesseini once supported Hitler’s policy of exterminating the Jews, the Washington Post reported.
“Islamic Jew-Hatred: It’s In the Quran,” the AFDI ad reads, calling for an end to U.S. aid given to Islamic countries.
“Stop racism,” the fiercely anti-Muslim group adds.
The firebrand who leads the AFDI, Pamela Geller, said her pro-Israel campaign is a response to another set of ads that found their way onto D.C. Metro buses this March and April.
Those ads, paid for by the American Muslims for Palestine, spoke out against Israel’s presence in Palestine.
“We’re sweating April 15 so Israelies don’t have to. Stop aid to Israel’s occupation,” the ads read.
Geller called the pro-Palestine group’s campaign “Jew-hating.”
The American Muslims for Palestine spokesperson said that her organization doesn’t usually react to Pamela Geller.
“This is the kind of thing she does, countering political speech with racist, Islamophobic speech,” Kristin Szremski said.
The Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled the AFDI a hate group.
But Washington’s metropolitan transit authority accepted the AFDI ad without a fight. They attempted to block a previous ad campaign from the AFDI in 2012, but lost the court battle.
That same year, Manhattan’s MTA attempted to block the AFDI from putting up anti-Muslim ads in the city’s subway system.
“In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad,” the controversial ads read.
A federal judge ruled in AFDI’s favor, acknowledging their First Amendment right to political speech.
