Woman Defaces 'Anti-Jihad' ad in Times Square Station

Why do people think forcefully silencing others is the same thing as free speech? I like the part at the end when she expresses confusion as to why the police are arresting her.

Video embedded below. (via)

"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.
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.”
