SEPTA won’t appeal a judge’s decision allowing controversial anti-Islamic ads featuring Adolf Hitler to be displayed on buses in the Philadelphia region.
The ad in question features a photograph of a 1941 meeting between Adolf Hitler and Hajj Amin al-Husseini, described by a pro-Israel group as a Palestinian leader and Hitler ally.
The bus ads carry a tagline saying: “Jew Hatred: It’s in the Quran.”
“We understand that our decision to not file an appeal will be disappointing to those who will be forced to view the disparaging ads,” said SEPTA General Manager Joseph Casey. “We are aware that the presence of the ads could anger the public, but caution that attempts to vandalize the ads or deface SEPTA vehicles will not be tolerated.”
