Egyptian/American Women Defaces Anti-Jihad Ad Poster in NYC ...

An act of free speech and freedom of expression? Or an illegal act of a disgruntled Egyptian/American activist? You the viewer be the judge...

New York Post - Cops busted a lone protester -- angry with subway ads equating enemies of Israel as “savages” -- as she spray-painted over one of the controversial signs today.

A Post camera crew captured the bizarre conflict between suspect Mona Eltahawy, 45, and a woman defending the ads.

“Mona, do you think you have the right to do this?” said Pamela Hall, holding a mounted camera as she tried to block the barrage of spray paint.

“I do actually,” Eltahawy calmly responded. “I think this is freedom of expression, just as this is freedom of expression.”

Hall then thrusts herself between Eltahawy’s spray paint and the poster.

Eltahawy -- an activist who has appeared on MSNBC and CNN -- engaged her in an odd cat-and-mouse dance, spraying pink every time she had an opening.

“What right do you have to violate free speech,” Hall pleaded.

“I’m not violating it. I’m making an expression on free speech,” an increasingly agitated Eltahawy shot back.

“You do not have the right!” Hall said.

“I do actually and I’m doing it right now and you should get out of the way! Do you want paint on yourself,” Eltahawy shot back

As the poster defender bobbed and weaved to get in the paint’s way, Eltahawy mocked: “That’s right, defend racism.”

Finally an MTA police officer and an NYPD cop came to scene and arrested Eltahawy.

“This is non-violent protest, see this America!” she said as cops cuffed her. “I’m an Egyptian-American and I refuse hate.”

The MTA was forced to install the controversial ad campaign by court order.

The 46- by 30-inch ads are plastered in 10 Manhattan stations, including busy Grand Central and Times Square Stations.

The American Freedom Defense Initiative, a pro-Israel group spearheaded by activist Pamela Geller, paid $6,000 for the ad space.

  1. Dump the bitch into the wilds of Egypt if she loves jihad so much. This is why I am against Muslim immigration. The do not understand natural rights and they do not respect our constitution.

    Yes, I know, they're not all bad, but our government is obviously incompetent at telling the good ones from the bad ones.

    Better to leave them to simmer and seethe in their own native cauldrons of hatred and stupidity.

    1. Hear! Hear!

      Couldn't have said it any better, myself.

  2. The Arena of World Politics has become little more than a mammoth DEFACATORIUM.

    1. Defacatoruim? You just added a new word to my vocabulary FT. Methinks the word certainly has descriptive potential. Wonder how long before we begin seeing and hearing it from the national duopoly political machines in reference to one another.
