NEW YORK (AP) — Controversial advertisements equating Muslim radicals with savages have gone up in New York City subways.

The ads by a conservative blogger appeared Monday in 10 stations throughout Manhattan. They will be in place for a month.

The ads read, "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad."

Transit officials had sought to block the ads. But a judge ruled the wording was protected under the First Amendment.

The ads had been seen on city buses in San Francisco in recent weeks. Some artists reacted by defacing them and taking out some of the words.
