Over the weekend, more alterations and "remixes" of Islamophobic ads on 
MUNI buses appeared across San Francisco 
<http://electronicintifada.net/blogs/nora/hate-group-places-islamophobic-advertisements-san-francisco-buses> 
as the community continues to take action to denounce the racist hate 
speech.

The original ads read: "In any war between the civilized man and the 
savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel ... Defeat jihad." As 
The Electronic Intifada reported on Friday, anonymous activists had 
added an image of a hand and a stamp 
<http://electronicintifada.net/blogs/nora/artists-alter-islamophobic-ads-sf-buses-muni-adds-disclaimers> 
with the words "HATE SPEECH" across placards with the ads, which are 
paid for by notorious anti-Muslim inciter Pamela Geller 
<http://electronicintifada.net/tags/pamela-geller> and her group, the 
American Freedom Defense Initiative.

More alterations of the ad have been spotted in San Francisco. On 
Sunday, an anonymous person posted a photo on Indybay with a comment 
<http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2012/08/17/18719719.php?show_comments=1#18719863> 
that reads, "Ads on three more buses were revised today." The sign was 
remixed to read "In any war between the colonizer and the colonized, 
support the oppressed. Support the Palestinian right of return 
<http://electronicintifada.net/tags/right-return> ... Defeat racism."

Here is that photo:
