The always disgusting hate group leader Pamela Geller has suffered a setback in her campaign to demonize all Muslims, as the family of James Foley (one of the journalists murdered by ISIS) strongly objects to Geller’s use of their son’s image in her ugly NYC subway advertisements, forcing her to pull those ads: Anti-Islamic Ads Depicting American Journalist James Foley Moments Before Death Pulled in NYC.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) - A group running a series of anti-Islamic ads in New York City’s transit system is pulling an ad that shows James Foley with the masked militant who killed him.

The ad, which depicts Foley moments before he is beheaded, is being yanked after criticism from the American journalist’s family.

The ads are paid for by the American Freedom Defense Initiative run by anti-Islam blogger Pamela Geller, whose attorney said the Foley family was notified that the ads were being pulled.

Attorney David Yerushalmi said he wrote their lawyer that “Geller understands and feels intimately the pain” they are suffering.

And that of course, is a pathetically obvious lie; Geller fully intended to exploit the image of their son to spread her hateful agenda, and she obviously did not care about anyone’s pain or suffering. This is what Geller and her cronies do.

British tabloid The Daily Mail has more details:

In his letter, the lawyer asked on behalf of James Foley’s family to withdraw the ad and stop using it.

‘Having lived in and reported from communities in which nearly everyone as of Muslim faith, he had great respect for the religion and those who practiced it.

‘The advertisement you are preparing to run seems to convey the message that ordinary practitioners of Islam are a dangerous threat.

‘This message is entirely inconsistent with Mr Foley’s reporting and his beliefs.’

Mr Rowan concluded his letter by warning the organization that using James Foley’s image to draw funding and attention to the AFDI will cause his family ‘profound distress.’
