In San Francisco, new ads on several MUNI buses, funded by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, read: "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man.  Support Israel, defeat Jihad."

The city has heard a public outcry to the ads, with citizens and advocacy groups deeming the ads inflammatory, Islamophobic, and racist.

KBOO's Jenn Chavez spoke with Zahra Billoo, the executive director of the San Francisco Bay Area chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations, for more on this story.
