Egyptian-born activist Mona Eltahawy was arrested yesterday for spray-painting subway billboards that calls radical Islamist enemies of Israel “savages” — amid a wave of vandalism unleashed on the inflammatory ads.
The New York Post reported:
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.
…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.
It looks like the radical Jew-hater is a frequent analyst on CNN and MSNBC.
The New York Post reported Egyptian-American columnist Mona Eltahawy has been arrested for defacing an anti-Muslim ad in the New York subway system. The video shows her spraying pink paint on the ad while a supporter of the ad tries to block her. She’s a journalist for censorship.
Eltahawy, a former Reuters correspondent, has been a recent favorite of CNN and MSNBC’s weekend morning shows to discuss Egypt, and she often smears together the Islamist “right wing” and the American right wing, as she did on Melissa Harris-Perry just 11 days ago.
