Remove Racist and Islamophobic signs at Metro-North train stops.

As travelers of Metro-North, we need to make our voices heard. Signs like this explicitly target Muslims and promote hate-crimes. Organizations like CBS Outdoors and Jihad Watch frame the issue as "Islamorealism" versus "Islamophobia," but we know better. It is the cumulative effect of these representations that result in violence against Muslims. Please sign this petition so we can help put an end to this corrosive culture.

      I am Palestinian American, born and raised in New York. I have the right to go on the bus or train and not be offended everytime I see this ad which creates hate and controversy.

      I am a Muslim who does not want the Islamic religion to be portrayed as a terrorist religion. People need to understand that Islam promotes peace. I pray that people do not let their irrational feelings play a part in this act.

      its just preposterous.. because i know my religion and its not how it is being portrayed in the media by some groups. its the peaceful religion and thats what its name means.. PEACE. any twisted mind individual activity should not be tied to the whole religion.

      These signs only serve to spread hatred and serve those who seek to oppress. If this group actually held what America claims to be its ideals, they would not ,make such things.
