So a "proud-liberal Moslem" woman defaced posters she feels insults Islam?

Huh. By her actions she has no business calling herself "liberal." Freedom of speech, and all that.

But by her dress, with no head covering and exposed flesh that drives the faithful mad with desire, no Islamist is going to consider her "Moslem" (and just where was her male escort, hmmm?)

But she still has the proud part, at least, since her action justified New York subway mission:

The New York Times reports the MTA will prohibit any advertisements that it “reasonably foresees would imminently incite or provoke violence or other immediate breach of the peace.”

I feel so silly that anyone would consider Islamists "barbarians" as the poster stated.

We can all be so proud of this abandonment of free speech in the face of demands by extremists to submit to their view of what is acceptable speech.

Remember, pointing out that Islamists are violent extremists isn't an attack on most Moslems who would rather not be associated with the more excitable elements of their faith who claim to speak for all Moslems.

In any case, I'm sure that in a couple weeks we'll have definitive statements by the MTA about whether this was a spontaneous action growing out of a normal protest in defense of Islam (and it is just tragic that the protester happened to have a can of spray paint on her) or a deliberately planned attack.
