Woman spray-painting anti-jihad ads in NYC shocked at arrest [VIDEO]
Daily Caller ^ | 9/26/2012

Egyptian-American progressive activist Mona Eltahaway was arrested in New York on Tuesday after spray painting over both a pro-Israel Subway advertisement and anti-jihadist blogger Pamela Hall, who tried to block the pink-clad Eltahaway from destroying the poster.

“I am not violating it [free speech], I am making an expression on free speech,” Eltahaway said as the bizarre encounter was being recorded.

“I think this is freedom of expression, just like this [sign] is freedom of expression,” she said, before cursing at the camera-wielding Hall and continuing to paint over the words.

Eltahaway, whose Twitter account describes her as “a columnist and a blogger on Arab and Muslim issues,” has a blog which highlights her talking-head appearances on CNN, BBC and Canada’s CBC.

Shortly after saying she was offended Hall did not pronounce Eltahaway correctly, Eltahaway expressed great surprise at being placed under arrest for spray painting in a New York City Subway.

“For what?” Eltahaway exclaimed, after being informed she was being arrested.

“For, for what?” one of the two arresting police officers replied.

“It is my right as a U.S. citizen to know what you’re arresting me for,” Eltahaway continued, turning toward a crowd to ask if they were watching. The crowd did not show any outward signs of sympathy toward the suspected vandal.

This is what happens to nonviolent protesters in America in 2012,” Eltahaway said, 15 years after New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani explained the harshness of graffiti street justice to a “Saturday Night Live” audience:

“She got in my way,” Elwahay told the officer in explaining why her nonviolent protest assaulted Hall.

“The 46- by 30-inch ads are plastered in 10 Manhattan stations, including busy Grand Central and Times Square Stations,” The New York Post reports.

They were sponsored by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, which is led by the controversial anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller.

“In any war between the civilized man and the savage,” the advertisements read, “support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad.”

“Meetings done; pink spray paint time. #ProudSavage #****Hate”" reads a tweet posted at roughly 4:30 p.m. on Eltahaway’s account.

In her next tweet, seven hours later, Mona Eltaway replaced the “#****Hate” hash tag with one reading “#FreeMona.”

According to the tweet, she was charged with criminal mischief.

The fine should be for her to scrub off all the Graffitti on the Subway cars in Brooklyn.

I remember..

The 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats were celebrated in the establishment MSM as the most intelligent generation ever!. They are now arguably that very establishment that praised them and they hold themselves and their ideological issue in even higher regard.

To them killing 30 million Americans can be just a form of free speech to bring about the desired change.

The fractured Muslim mind in full bloom. Its cousin, the Occupy Wall Street mind is hibernating for a season. Neanderthals all, the savages seek refuge in a reasoned social structure that they cannot comprehend. You cannot hate freedom, justice, and the rule of law, and then pretend that they are your salvation. What a complete moron.

You know that she wanted to say Muslim, but Egyptian sounds politically correct at this time. The history books are filled with euphemisms for Arabs, Muslims, and Islamists. They are all one in the same; savages seeking refuge in cultures they despise.

With the same logic, can an American citizen nail the doors of a Dearborn mosque and set it on fire during a Friday service?

Based on this $%^@'s reasoning, it's only a matter of degree.

Communism, fascism, Islamism and globalism are all radical ideologies popular among the elitists of the globe but that are totally incompatible with constitutional freedom.

No wonder they have named constitutionalists their domestic terrorist enemy. The constitution terrorizes them; ruins their hopes and dreams.

The following is truly unbelievable. Mona, the Egyptian/Muslim spraypaint biotch, was beaten senseless a few months ago by Egyptian police only a few short months ago. In other words, she was brutally assaulted by her own tribe, and then comes back to the land of the free and home of the brave to DEFEND the mindless hordes!!!! OMG...

Besides breaking her arms, her Muslim brothers must have brainwashed her.

In the video of her spray-paint attack, she looks like she in on something. She has a crazy look in her eyes.

Didn’t she get the memo that spray-painting in the subway is practically a capital crime under Bloomberg?

Good comment on the NY post page for the story from an Iranian. Once again proving how incredibly stupid liberal Americans are for supporting so-called "oppressed" people overseas when they have absolutely no idea what they really stand for.

I am Iranian and was born as a muslim. I am completely admit that their final goal is to dominate the world. ruin the western values such as freedom of speech, respecting women and the ability of free living . if so they don't let us to drink alcohol, pork , listen to music , dance , make love, dress as we like and so many other things that we like. as they're doing right now in my country , please please please don't let them to dictate you their values. don't let them to dominate western countries. protect your values however you can! trust me they're worst than zombies. Google Iran before Islamic revolution and Google Iran after bloody Islamic revolution you'll see the differences. the difference between a free society and an Islamic one!

Battered muslim syndrome. She seems to think if she loves Islam and muslims enough, she can change them, no matter how hard they keep hitting her in the face.

Bloomberg does not care at all about vandalism, or panhandling, or vagrancy or public defecation.

He cares about salt, fat, sugar and tobacco.

You seem to have him confused with Giuliani.

Now that is a life long sentence, and it fits the crime. And the criminal, too.

For such females, enlightenment will come with her Islamic mandated “female excision”, done as usual by a crone with an old razor blade.

No anesthesia, either.
