Huffington Post published names and faces of those who oppose Germany's "migrant" policy

The Huffington Post, the liberal website founded by Arianna Huffington, has a branch in Germany, also called The Huffington Post (HuffPo).
In an article (originally published on August 14, 2015 and updated through August 16), HuffPo (Germany) published the names and photos of people who had commented on social media opposing the ongoing “refugee-migrant” invasion. If you post a comment on their website or Facebook page or any social media, you will be named.
The lead author of the article is HuffPo (Germany)’s chief editor Sebastian Matthes.
The article begins by referring to a prior HuffPo article praising Germans who welcomed the “refugees.” Soon after that article was published, HuffPo was flooded with “hateful” comments by people opposed to Germany’s migrant policy, such as “Europe did not invite the parasites,” “our women are harassed,” “kick them out,” and “Sabrina and her ilk should be sold to the ISIS, where they can enjoy the benefits of Islam wholeheartedly.”
It is also claimed that individuals who were quoted in the article received hate mail. One of them asked HuffPo to delete his name because he feared for his family’s safety.
HuffPo continues (my paraphrase of Google’s translation of the German article):

Now, we can do what we Germans have been doing for too long — we can dismiss the haters as “crazy idiots” and just look the other way. For years, we failed to recognize and confront xenophobia and racism. But no more.
The Internet has become a violent mob who act contrary to the values of our Basic Law. It is time for us to defend democracy and confront the haters by revealing their faces and names. In so doing, we are simply exercising the same freedom of expression that they espouse.

Below is a collage of their faces:
HuffPo Germany outs opponents of refugee-migrants
The rest of the HuffPo article is a long list of the names and comments made by those who oppose Germany’s generous migrant policy.
Pamela Geller points out the gravity of what HuffPo did:

If you post a comment on their site or Facebook or any social media, you will be named. The Huffington Post is a global news organization. This is putting a target on anyone’s head that refuses to go along with the leftist/Islamic war on freedom. These are the lengths the left will go to impose the sharia (Islamic law) on the unwilling.
I have long said the media is the enemy. It’s why I refer to them as the enemedia. They abdicated their role as a news gathering entity and morphed into an activist organization viciously pursuing an anti-freedom agenda.
Germans that are posting anti-refugee posts on Facebook or any other social media site, are being shut down. Facebook, Twitter, etc, and their faces and accounts are being posted. It’s a witch hunt.
[German] Chancellor Merkel is working Mark Zuckerberg to censor anti-invasion FB posts.

"Killing Jews" ad approved by NY judge is sponsored by pro-Israel group

A district judge just ruled that ads posted on New York City buses and subways reading, “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah,” are acceptable under First Amendment protections.
If you were outraged by the judge’s decision, you are not alone. I, too, raised my eyebrows when I saw the headline — until I read further, to the part saying the ads are meant as PARODY aimed at Muslims, sponsored by the pro-Israel pro-Jews group, American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI).
Michael F. Haverluck reports for OneNewsNow, April 25, 2015, that next to AFDI’s ad’s statement, “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah,” is the image of a young man in a checkered headscarf with the words, “That’s His Jihad. What’s yours?”
Ironic and confusing to many, the ads were created by the pro-Israel group, American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), intended to counter and mock ads launched in 2012 and 2013 by CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), which ran in several cities across the United States to promote so-called “peaceful” versions of Islam with the message, “#MyJihad is to build friendships across the aisle. What’s yours?” However, the CAIR ads did not run in New York City because of a disagreement between CAIR and the New York Metropolitan Transport Authority (MTA).
The AFDI proposed four “parody” ads to the MTA, which approved three, except the “Kill Jews” ad because MTA Security Director Raymond Diaz feared the ad would incite violence, especially toward Jews. Diaz explained that “What matters is not AFDI’s intent, but how the ad would be interpreted.” The ad could be read as a “call to violence” because the CAIR ads that it is mocking never ran in New York City.
So AFDI took their dispute with Diaz and the MTA to court.
Manhattan-Federal-Court-Judge-John-Koeltl
Yesterday, April 28, 2015, United States District Judge John Koeltl ruled that he cannot stop the MTA from running the ads and threw out its arguments in AFDI’s favor, declaring that “the ads could not reasonably be considered an incitement to violence, even if someone didn’t understand them,” The Washington Post reports. Koeltl states in his ruling:

“The defendants [MTA] admit that the actual intention of the advertisement is not to advocate the use of force, but to parody the CAIR ‘My Jihad’ campaign and to criticize Hamas and radical Islam. However, they argue that a reasonable New Yorker would not read the advertisement this way, but would instead read it as advocating the killing of Jewish people … The defendants’ theory is thoroughly unpersuasive. [MTA officials] underestimate the tolerant quality of New Yorkers and overestimate the potential impact of these fleeting advertisements. Moreover, there is no evidence that seeing one of these advertisements on the back of a bus would be sufficient to trigger a violent reaction. Therefore, these ads — offensive as they may be — are still entitled to First Amendment protection.

AFDI President and Co-founder Pamela Geller was pleased with the decision about her ad, which includes a disclaimer at the bottom, stating that it is “a paid advertisement sponsored by AFDI” and that it “does not imply MTA’s endorsement.” “This is a triumph for liberty and free speech,” Geller tweeted with the hashtags, “#freedom #victory #shariafail.”
Celebrating AFDI’s latest victory over the “Killing Jews” ad, Geller announced her plans to keep the message going, “With our NY win, our ads will make their debut on New York buses in the coming weeks. We want to run 100.”

Pamela Geller and AFDI will get no sympathy from me if the “Kill Jews” ads result in violence against either Jews or Muslims.

Anti-jihad ads destroyed by Egyptian-born activist

Activist busted after defacing anti-Islam ad in Times Sq. station

NY Post: An Egyptian-born activist was arrested yesterday for spray-painting subway billboards that call enemies of Israel “savages” — amid a wave of vandalism unleashed on the inflammatory ads, which have divided the city.

Mona Eltahawy, a self-described “liberal Muslim,” strolled up to one of the signs at the crowded 1/2/3 train mezzanine at the Times Square station and sprayed pink paint on the ads. Straphangers stopped and watched Eltahawy — in a bright pink coat just a few shades darker than the paint — in amazement.

But Pamela Hall, a Manhattan mom who supports the message of the ads, was so infuriated, she rushed to stop Eltahawy . “Do you have a right to do this?” demanded Hall — an ally of Pamela Geller, leader of a pro-Israel group behind the posters. “I do actually,” said a sedate Eltahawy, 45, who has appeared on MSNBC and CNN. “I think this is freedom of expression, just as this [the ad] is freedom of expression.

Hall tried to physically block Eltahawy, bobbing back and forth like a basketball forward while the angered activist shot bursts of paint around her. “If you don’t want paint, you should get out of my way,” Eltahawy said before spraying Hall. Hall then poked Eltahawy with her video camera stick. That infuriated Eltahawy, who blurted out, “F–k you!”

Eltahawy seemed stunned when an NYPD officer and an MTA cop arrived momentarily after and put cuffs on her. “This is what happens when you nonviolently protest in America!” she yelled. “That’s true,” said someone in the crowd, prompting a burst of laughter from onlookers.

She was charged with criminal mischief, making graffiti and possession of a graffiti instrument, and held overnight. “Anybody who murders people coming from church or sleeping in their bed is a savage,” Hall said.

Eltahawy’s arrest capped a day of widespread vandalism targeting the controversial ads. Just before going on the Times Square mission, Eltahawy tweeted: “Meetings done; pink spray paint time. #ProudSavage.” Signs in seven of the 10 stations where the ads have been posted were defaced.

At the 23rd Street C/E station, someone stamped the word “racist” over the text, and at 28th Street on the 6, someone placed a stamp that read, “Hate speech.

Pamela Geller is blogging on how the media is reporting on her “inflammatory” ads yet overlooking the blatant vandalism of private property. From her website,

“One anti-jihad poster goes up, and it’s defaced within an hour, while its creator faces defamation, smears and libel. Islamic supremacists and leftist thugs criminally defaced these ads within an hour. This is a physical manifestation of the entire conversation, or lack thereof. Anyone who speaks about jihad and sharia is attacked, defamed, destroyed — just like these ads.”

I don’t see what the “hate” speech is.  Who wouldn’t want to destroy jihad before they destroy Israel? One only need to read about radical Islam here. And Religion of Peace is always keeping track as well.
