Before I file my story can you tell us why no such mailing went out concerning the vicious anti-Semitic ads. The anti-Israel ads were twice the buy (100 kiosks.) This speaks to a systemic, institutionalized anti-semitism prevalent in your administration and among the Board.
Care to comment?
The dhimmi Mayor of Hastings-on-Hudson sent me the email below to ..... taunt me? It is jawdropping. The Board of Trustees sent a letter to the entire village last night asking residents "to express their dismay" to Joseph Lhota (here) concerning our islamorealism ad. I suggest you do the same, shruggers. I would write to everyone (even to this clown of a Mayor). But be polite. Hastings-on-Hudson, this is your taxpayer dollars at work!
Do these politicians really believe that all Muslims support jihad? And if they believe it, why surrender so swiftly?
The Muslim Brotherhood groups don't even have to agitate anymore. They can just sit back and watch these useful idiots and dhimmis do their work for them.
The Mayor and this Board of spineless wonders maintained their neutrality about the anti-semitic ad; they were silent about that. Notice how these clowns at one government entity has "complained" to another about private citizens exercising their constitutional rights.
Again, I encourage all Atlas readers to write to Joseph Lhota, Chairman, MTA, 347 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10017 or to the general comment email at the MTA website at http://mta-nyc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/mta_nyc.cfg/php/enduser/ask.php, to express your support for these ads and your "dismay" at Hastings-on-Hudson's politically correct pandering and running interference for genocidal jihadists, as well as for their craven and disquieting disregard for the freedom of speech of those with whom they disagree.

Subject: Message from the Board: Controversial MetroNorth Billboard on train platform
Fellow Residents –
A few days ago, a billboard appeared on the city-bound MetroNorth platform (as well as, apparently, throughout Westchester) sponsored by “The American Freedom Defense Initiative”. This billboard starts with “19,250 Islamic attacks since 9/11” and states that “It’s not Islamophobia, it’s Islamorealism.”
While the Board respects everyone’s right to free speech, we categorically condemn the bigotry and innuendo expressed by this billboard message. To tar a faith and its followers because of the actions of a few is deplorable, hateful and morally repugnant. Such an ad neither reflects the ideals of this community, nor, we believe, of our nation. America welcomes people of all faiths, including millions of the Muslim faith who call our country (including those who live in our village) their home. They, like the vast majority of believers in that (and all other) major religions, embrace peace and do not endorse the violence wrought by a fanatic few.
The Board of Trustees have joined the many others who have already complained to MetroNorth about this ad campaign placement. MetroNorth’s Media Relations department has issued a statement that concludes with “The MTA does not endorse the viewpoint expressed in these ads or any of the ads that the MTA accepts for display on its facilities.” Apparently, after legal review, this ad did not qualify as hate speech and falls under First Amendment protection. If any resident would like to express their dismay, they should address their letters to Joseph Lhota, Chairman, MTA, 347 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10017 or the general comment email at the MTA website at . http://mta-nyc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/mta_nyc.cfg/php/enduser/ask.php.
Thank you for your attention,
The Board of Trustees of the
Village of Hastings-on-Hudson

UPDATE: it is so great to hear from so many residents angered by this act of cowardice and senseless pandering to jihad. I urge all concerned residents to attend our World Freedom Congress on September 11, 2012 at 3pm at the UN Plaza Hotel. Take back your town, your city, your country from clueless and complicit dhimmis.
