Anti-Islamic ads will begin appearing on 100 New York City buses as well as two subway entrances next week, the Associated Press reported.

One of the six approved ads shows an image of beheaded American journalist James Foley next to his killer:

The ads are paid for by the American Freedom Defense Initiative run by blogger Pamela Geller. The campaign highlights points about Islam ignored by government and media, she told the AP.

Geller's group previously has run similar ad campaigns.

A court order forced the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to run viewpoint ads, but the agency requires a disclaimer saying it doesn't endorse the views, the AP added.

But the MTA said it rejected an ad that uses the quote, "Killing Jews is Worship that draws us close to Allah" because it could lead to violence, the AP reported.
